Colored Looks at Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor Show All the Awesome; Amazon To Include Additional Pile Drivers
puma - Wednesday, June 13, 2012


At this rate, Takara Tomy may not have anything left to reveal at this weekend's Toyko Toy Show. Japanese retailer e-Hobby has posted the product page for the company's Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor (Sideswipe) and Amazon Japan has revealed their exclusive.

The figure is exactly like you would expect the Generation 1 homage and appears to be in-scale with Transformers MP-10 Convoy and is able to hitch a ride in the trailer.

The figure is set for an October 2012 release for 5800 Yen (~$73 USD).


Amazon Japan is also offering exclusive pile drivers that can be attached to the figure's hands in robot mode (see image below). A set will come with each purchase of MP-12 Lambor from Amazon, which is currently taking pre-orders for 5098 Yen (~$64 USD).


This mold will be reused for MP-14 Red Alert, which is set to be officially announced by Takara at Tokyo Toy Show this weekend.

I found another pic of the weapons storing on the vehicle mode when i looked on Amazon.jp I want to order all the figures from them as the Sideswipe comes with piledrivers and Soundwave comes with Energon cubes! I am looking forward to these guys. Will these guys have real rubber tires? I know i... read more

Sideswipe is going to be the same basic size as an Alternity, so tall Deluxe, small Voyager( based on pre-DOTM sizes, not the current sizes) Soundwave is the one I'm waiting on for size comparison's, he's either gonna be the same height as MP-10, or just a tad shorter, around the same h... read more

I will ask the question that no one has....I hope that all the weapons fit on the figure in Alt mode....would kind of suck if they at this point couldn't be stored on the figure....I want to see what he looks like next to Alt / BT and the MP01 figure as well. I am guessing he's going to be a... read more

are we looking at the same figure???? These guys are being done in proper scale with each other. Since Takara reset the scale with MP-10, Lambor had to shrink down too. Since the figures shrink, so did the prices. The MP line are supposed to be more Anime accurate. Hell, he even looks like the DW S... read more

I'm a bit dissapointed with Sideswipe. It does not look like what I have grown to expect what a MP to be. He's small and a blocky. I was wondering why the price was so low and then we saw the prototype image. My honost first reaction was that that could not be a MP! The price may be... read more

i don't think all the other cassettes were confirmed to be released in the same box as Soundwave.... Why wouldn't Takara do the same things as they did in the 80's??? Pack 1 cassette with the figure, and then release 2 packs. That model worked back in the 80's, why the hell not no... read more

More MasterPiece News
Coinciding with the launch of the preorder period, TakaraTomy Mall has added photos of the four Masterpiece cassette characters making up their combined MP-15/16-E set. Enemy, Wingthing, Stripes, and new mold Night Stalker are all on display in full color and deco, showing both robot modes and their individual cassette form decos. There's no clear indication of when preorders for the set will be closed, but the page now gives a delivery estimate of December for the set. You can find all the images in the gallery below!
Right behind Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee, it appears MPM-4 Optimus is now becoming available at retail in Asia as well. On Youtube, hirohitokusanagi has posted three videos featuring the new Masterpiece figure. First up is a demo of the transformation. It's compared repeatedly to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime in the way it works, but none of the numerous steps look particularly difficult. The next two videos show the weapons, plus comparisons alongside other figures. You can find all three embedded below!
Just like Sunstreaker, we've got a TakaraTomy site update for MP-12+, the cartoon deco rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe. The differences largely come down to replacing silver paint elements with white, though there may or may not be some minor mold changes to the face. In any case, this release also comes with all the existing piledriver attachments previously spread over several different retailer editions of the standard MP-12. You can find all 25 images in the gallery below!
From TakaraTomy's big website update today, we've got a big stack of official photos of Masterpiece Sunstreaker. Many are images that we've seen before in promoting the figure, but new to this update are a set of turnarounds that show the toy in robot mode and both configurations of its vehicle mode, giving a "360 view" of it that might offer some angles we haven't seen so far. All of the photos - there's over 30 of them - can be found in the gallery below!
Not content to merely drive RFC's diecast bananas via giving a duplicate Masterpiece its own number, HasbroAsia is including a set of literal diecast bananas as their region-exclusive bonus for MP-38 Optimus Primal Legendary Leader Version! Site Sponsor Robotkingdom has photos of said bananas as well as package shots of the more toy-oriented version of the figure, which is due to start shipping this Saturday. Keep reading to see!
