Thanks to the CyberGundam blog we have work that TakaraTomy have announced there will be a delay in the release of the Transformers Encore Fortress Maximus and the Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave. The Encore Fortress Maximus will released on March 30th, 2013 instead of the original February date. The Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave will be released on January 26, 2013 instead of the December 15, 2012 date. We know many of you were looking forwards to these toys.

Means I habe more time to save for the wave, so it's good with me
While I could handle it, I can do without one more credit card charge in December. As for Fort Max, the delay will give me more time build up the "war chest" of money I use for such purchases.
I think it's good. Should have money back from my taxes by then to spend on them.
As long as they are coming, I am happy with the delay. Allows me to refill my coffers after all that spending I did on the TRU exclusives.

Have you ever wondered what your Masterpiece Transformers might look like if they were 90% transparent? Probably not, which I think makes this find all the more interesting.

The metal components remain opaque, but everything else becomes translucent. Interestingly, some of these even end up looking like schematics or CAD lines. It's an interesting and unique look at these figures. Check it out mirrored below!

First up is the official package art for MP-36 Megatron, and you can just about hear Frank Welker's maniacal cackle looking at the image. Also of note are some reissues due for April next year - keep reading for the specifics!
Via Loopaza on Facebook, we have our first look at Masterpiece Artfire! Just a matter of hours after its existence was first revealed, we can now see exactly what's coming our way in 2017. Besides of course the new deco, which incorporates elements of the toy's sticker detailing, Artfire comes with his very own articulated Nightstick Targetmaster partner. There's several angles plus nice closeups on the brand new Targetmaster mold, and you can see them all in the gallery below!
