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.

Well... at least based on that pic it'll make a good looking G2 repaint, lol

I found another pic of the weapons storing on the vehicle mode when i looked on 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

My Universe 2.0 Sideswipe is good enough.

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

That looks awesome! -  
12:24 am

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

Via Facebook, from a currently unidentified source, we have higher resolution and better quality images from the magazine pages that revealed MP-36 Megatron. Notably we have a good look at the accessory array, which contains among other things a Key To Vector Sigma, the helmet used to control the Optimus Prime clone in "A Prime Problem", the gun and beam sabre from the movie, and several option parts. Small insets demonstrate attack modes with the gun mode add-ons, as well. Keep reading to see it all!
TFW2005 member oku has shared magazine... well, photos! Definitely not scans - of a hobby magazine set to reveal the previously-leaked Masterpiece Megatron as MP-36! It looks a fair bit better than the previous MP Megatron, and comes with some interesting accessories, including Transformers: The Movie battle-damaged chestplate and helmet! Keep reading to see the photos!
While we learned about this accessory back in May, thanks to Hobbybase we now have full, non-silhouette photos of the diecast Megatron gun included with the reissue of MP29 Shockwave. And it looks nice! This will be the bonus item shipped out with the figure for the Hasbro Asia release, so if you have a retailer of choice in non-Japanese Asian territories, you may want to see about a preorder. Keep reading for photos!
You just KNOW there's a goatee under that faceplate. Site sponsor RobotKingdom has posted a new gallery of images of the upcoming Masterpiece Shattered Glass Optimus Prime! The Autobot leader's mirror universe counterpart will be released in Asia in November, and this is our first look at the package art by More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne with colors by Sara Pitre-Durocher (Till All Are One)! Keep reading to see the photos!
It is unusual for a Hasbro Designer Desk video to spotlight a Masterpiece figure - not least of which because MPs tend to be projects initiated by TakaraTomy. But because of that, this Masterpiece Bumblebee episode of Transformers Designer Desk has a very special guest star, Mr. Shogo Hasui! Keep reading to see the video!
