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.

Here's my review of the new Transformers Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber! I didn't expect it to run so long at 45 minutes, so I have rambled a little bit LOL!! But there were a lot of different things to go through with the figure.
Toynes.jp has posted its weekly toy sales rankings, and it pegs an interesting item in the top position. Leading its "comprehensive" Top 5 is Masterpiece Star Saber which with its 3/21 release date just barely made the reporting period from March 16th to 22nd. Following it in the list are two items from the current Super Sentai series, and two Yokai Watch items. While we can't be sure if this counts delivered presales, on the spot purchases, or both, it's not hard to imagine Star Saber was a big seller on its release weekend and may have been the biggest of all!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We talk about Combiner Wars Quickslinger and Brake-Neck (REALLY Slingshot and Wildrider) which were just unveiled, TFSS Tarantulus, MP25 Tracks, FP Volar NOT Swoop, new FP Function X recolors, and, of course, Masterpiece Exhaust. All that and more!
TakaraTomy Mall has put up a page announcing the next recolor of the Masterpiece Datsun body. The long awaited Blue Bluestreak is available for preorder from now through April 10th, to a limit of 2000 pieces. Blue Bluestreak will cost ¥7992 and will be released on August 1st. Click through to check out the mirrored pictures of the extremely pretty new Masterpiece recolor and keep an eye out at your favorite retailer or middleman for preorders!
TAGHobby has posted a couple of magazine scans showing off MP-25 Tracks, now in full color and good resolution! The toy's looking sharp in both modes - all three modes rather - and nicely poseable. We also get a nice shot of the whole package in one place, with Tracks in Flight Mode on his stand and Raoul and Blaster on the base. Don't expect anything from that Blaster but a Raoul-sized radio, because they are both tiny. Keep reading to see!
