The official TakaraTomyMall page for the upcoming Masterpiece Cassette 4-Pack has updated with some new photos! This is an oddball of a set, featuring 2 Autobot tapes despite the absence of an MP Blaster. And one of them is a new Steeljaw mold. Huh. Well, while we wait for the increasingly inevitable MP Blaster, keep reading to see his first two cassettes, along with Wingthing and Enemy!
Takara Transformers MP-10B Masterpiece Black Convoy is repainted in the color scheme of Nemesis Prime, the evil counterpart of Optimus prime. Made of plastic and die-cast MP-10B features clear cab windows and comes armed with a blaster rifle and energy axe.
Coinciding with the launch of the preorder period, TakaraTomy Mall has added photos of the four Masterpiece cassette characters making up their combined MP-15/16-E set. Enemy, Wingthing, Stripes, and new mold Night Stalker are all on display in full color and deco, showing both robot modes and their individual cassette form decos. There's no clear indication of when preorders for the set will be closed, but the page now gives a delivery estimate of December for the set. You can find all the images in the gallery below!
Right behind Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee, it appears MPM-4 Optimus is now becoming available at retail in Asia as well. On Youtube, hirohitokusanagi
has posted three videos featuring the new Masterpiece figure. First up is a demo of the transformation. It's compared repeatedly to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime in the way it works, but none of the numerous steps look particularly difficult. The next two videos show the weapons, plus comparisons alongside other figures. You can find all three embedded below!
Just like Sunstreaker, we've got a TakaraTomy site update for MP-12+, the cartoon deco rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe. The differences largely come down to replacing silver paint elements with white, though there may or may not be some minor mold changes to the face. In any case, this release also comes with all the existing piledriver attachments previously spread over several different retailer editions of the standard MP-12. You can find all 25 images in the gallery below!
