Transformers Encore Fortress Maximus and Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave Delayed
By Jack on Monday, November 12, 2012
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. Hopefully, these are the only figures held up.

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. I am sure I spent over $200 in the past month alone on those exclusives. Also, between my pre-orders and gas spent trying to find above said exclusives, my ... read more
Yup, Soundwave should be on my doorstep 2 weeks after my birthday, still counts though! Lol
That works in favor of folks who wanted to use their tax returns to score Fort Max so good for them at least!
Well bummer! I was really hoping to have Soundwave between Christmas and my birthday, now he won't be here until about 3 weeks afterwards. Kinda good about FM, maybe I'll get enough together for him, but he's kind of an after thought ... SW was my big one!
Actually happy Fort Max got pushed back a bit, the later his release date is, the more likely it'll be that I can afford him. A little bummed about Soundwave, but I guess it'll have to be a birthday present to myself instead of a Christmas present, so no real big, especially since we're ... read more
We're still looking for corroboration on this, so file firmly in rumor territory for now, but it may be that the long-anticipated Masterpiece Jazz might be on the way. On Twitter, snakas of Autobase Aichi tweeted a silhouetted image depicting Jazz with the MP-31 text. Again, we're unsure of an original source for the information, but with Wonderfest happening today in Japan we're not ruling out the possibility of this as a reveal. We expect to have more Wonderfest coverage to share later tonight, so keep watching for that and more updates about the possible Masterpiece Jazz!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of Titans Return and Masterpiece discussion this week. Melllvarr has his hands on Masterpiece Ironhide and surprise! He actually likes it! Also we talk about the new photos of MP Hot Rod and discuss new images of MP Optimus Primal. We discuss news coming out of Nuremberg Toy Fair, the upcoming start date of Transformers 5 filming and more!
We have a video mirrored from the Chinese Youku streaming video service that gives us a look at the full process of transforming the new Masterpiece Hot Rod. As expected from the older photos, a majority of the car shell is compressed within the torso and backpack. Once everything is unfolded, it seems the front wheels won't even touch the ground due to some leftover robot elements under the car. Otherwise it seems like everything comes together solidly for both modes. Keep reading to check out the embedded video.
TFW2005 member Monrai has posted to that site a series of scans from Hyper Hobby Magazine showing off MP Optimus Primal! The Maximal leader's transformation is shown, specifically how the head works now that his robot mode chest piece is part of the gorilla gut. Also, we get our first look at his swappable faceplates, including various lipped expressions and a "battlemask" (AKA Toy Look) version. Keep reading to see!
While TakaraTomy is region-locking their weekly Beast Wars videos on YouTube, ironically they're not apparently doing so on Japanese streaming site NicoVideo. This week, after the Beast Wars recap, QTransformers Arcee shows off the grayscale prototype of MP Beast Convoy! The video can't be embedded, so keep reading to see screengrabs and a link!
