Hasbro Masterpiece Soundwave and Acid Strom Coming July 2013
Jack - Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Thanks to OzFormers member Ultra Mackness and griffinwho has managed to get a little time with Hasbro's Austrialian representives who informed them Hasbo down-under are planning to release both a Masterpiece Soundwave as well as a Masterpiece Acid Strom that we assume will be a Seeker repaint. These figures are said to be be in stores around July of this year. Read on for the full details from OZformers below.

Ultra Mackness's Comments on Soundwave
Okay so to help me make a decision about whether I give Takara my cash for MP Soundwave, I decided to email Hasbro about whether there will be a Hasbro release of MPSW or not and just got this reply:

Hi Michael, I am sorry for the delay in responding. I have checked with a colleague who specializes in Transformers. He has confirmed that the Masterpiece Soundwave line will be sold in Australia through Toys-R-Us, but not until July 2013. They are expected to sell in Toys-R-Us from July to September. Kind regards, Hasbro Consumer Services

Griffin's Comments on Acid Storm
As mentioned in the Hasbro MP Soundwave topic (which is now confirmed to be coming out in mid-2013), I asked ToysRUs if any more Masterpiece toys are in their system, hoping it was Sideswipe.... but no, a different Masterpiece toy by Hasbro is coming to ToysRUs at the same time as Soundwave.....

Acid Storm.
A green Starscream redeco, to add to the Masterpiece seeker squadron.

Priced at AU$100, it is $20 more than Thundercracker... so could have a similar price increase in America.


Considering how many Masterpiece toys are coming out of Japan at the moment, I was not expecting Hasbro to release one that Japan hasn't done (yet).
Acid Storm was a classic-verse toy/character that didn't get released in Japan either, so maybe this MP toy is a Hasbro exclusive as well.

Yeah, it's nice Hasbronis bringing MPs here, but they REALLY need to get the quantities up. I never saw MP Prime in stores. Everytime someone posted on this site that he was back up for sale on the TRU site, I'd miss it. One day a friend of mine sent me a message via Face Book saying he was... read more

From what I have learned and heard he is supposedly coming with all 5 Cassettes too! I will definitely be getting the US release as well.....given that I can ever find him...I think he'll be harder to find than MP OP. I am wondering if he will be packaged in Robot mode or in Alt mode? I h... read more

Good point. Hasbro's Soundwave is either going to be the same as Takara's, only with the yellow visor or in lighter, cartoon-like colors.

When Hasbro wanted to roll out their own cartoon series in the 80s, They went to Japan to work with Takara's Microman and Diaclone toy lines. Drawing the primary sources for the Transformers G1 toys that debuted in 1985. While only a small portion of the Microman series were utilized for Hasbro's Transformers. Microman toys were sold in America well before in 1976 as Mego's Micronaughts toys. Great to see these line together again under the Hasbro umbrella. Which, are set to join forces in the new IDW REVOLUTION crossover extravaganza!
Diaclone was launched in Japan by Takara in 1980, the same year I was born. And that’s where my childhood association with Diaclone ends, as growing up in the UK it was primarily Transformers that had my attention. Trickles of Diaclone-based figures did reach the UK but in London I saw neither sight nor sound of them. In addition to Japan and Asia, countries like France, Italy, Holland, Germany and some Scandinavian territories had Diaclone toys on shelves.
Comic Book Resources goes behind the scenes with IDW's people who are leading the charge on the mega-massive IDW REVOLUTION crossover extravaganza!!... Which, many of you may be asking yourself what is this cross over stuff? That's where this video comes to the rescue to explain what on earth, and space, is going on in this ultr-verse where giant robots been everyone else in the Hasbro Universe with MASK, GI Joe, ROM, Micronaughts, and how, where, how, who, how, what... Anyways watch that video below about what is in store from IDW REVOLUTION.
