Generation 1
Hasbro Masterpiece Soundwave and Acid Strom Coming July 2013

By Jack on 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.

Stay tuned to Tformers.com for more details as they are made available. Your best resource for all the Transformers news and community every day.

Retro Robot Radio and TFormers.com present one of the most bizarre paradoxes in the history of Transformers Audiobooks - Galvatron's Air Attack! This story was written in the short gap between the release of the 1986 toys, but before the release of the Transformers 1986 movie. The writers wanted to add in all the characters introduced in the film, but didn't know the plot of the film yet.. so they just read the tech specs for the characters and made something up.
Just in are the IDW Publishing November 2014 Transformers Comic Books Solicitations and Covers. Get the previews on the coming publications hitting stands in November including: Transformers: Primacy #4, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Vol. 6, Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #35: Days of Deception, Transformers #35: Days of Deception SPOTLIGHT, Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #1, and Angry Birds/Transformers #1.

IJK Productions has posted a review of Masterpiece Prowl to YouTube. Decent-looking figure, but kind of funny to watch MP Soundwave tower over him to that degree. Keep reading to see the review!
Butting in on his movie counterpart's corpse-wearin' ways, Hot Toys Optimus Prime Starscream Version is a slick, nontransforming figure of G1 Prime by the company responsible for all the pretty Iron Man figures most of us will never own. Sideshow Collectibles, official distributor of Hot Toys in the US, has posted images of the figure, which is due in July 2015 with an SRP of $345. Keep reading for the photos and start saving up now!
UK company Paladone has posted their online catalog of Transformers related products, and some of them are pretty neat. From a squishy stress-relief Bumblebee to an Optimus Prime egg cup to foamboard 3D puzzles of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee that look as though they might transform, the items are more creative than many licenced goods. Keep reading for some sample images and a link!
