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

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

Transformers Combaticon Awareness Week
More MasterPiece News
TF-Prototype on Facebook has posted several photos from the pages of the new Generations 2015 book released in Japan. Shown in the shared pages are new looks at the prototype for Masterpiece Hot Rod, Shockwave all in color, Ratchet and Ironhide, plus a look at Unite Warriors Devastator and the Constructicons Click through to check out all the images!
From wolixiaoqi on weibo, we've got some nice photos of the exclusive Clampdown Masterpiece figure, the Red Alert recolor as a police car. This, like Tigertrack is one of the G1 characters invented by eHobby to create more uses for reissued G1 toy molds several years ago, and now serving the same purpose for Masterpiece. Clampdown is due for release sometime next month, so these pictures are a great preview of what's to come. Click through and check them out!
Dengeki Hobby has posted some new photos of Masterpiece Red Bumblebee, the same-character recolor due to release in December. The Masterpiece figure is intended to homage the color variations found in the original Autobot Minicars, though one might also argue that this is acting as a stop-gap for a Cliffjumper that potentially won't happen for a while. Whatever the true motive, the red bodied Bug photographs rather well, but if the Dengeki writeup is accurate, may be a little light on accessories, possibly only including its gun. Click through for the photos!
Today we take a look at the new Transformers: Masterpiece MP-25 Tracks from Takara.
Transformers Devastation went with a very specific visual style to work with cel-shading and bring a cartoon-like finish to its character models. LEK Custom Toys was inspired by that, and produced custom repaints of Masterpiece Optimus and Soundwave to match. The paint jobs feature no lack of skill, as they look every bit like the game designs made real thanks to careful matching of the simulated reflectivity of the surfaces that bring about that same cartoon-like impression. We've mirrored a few photos of each, but there's lots more on LEK's Facebook. Keep reading for photos and links!
