Leaked this weekend in a fuzzy image of a hobby magazine page, we now have full photos from TakaraTomy themselves of Loud Pedal, the recolor of Masterpiece Tracks featuring the toy-based head previously seen only on a testshot.
Loud Pedal will be an exclusive at Tokyo Toy Show this summer, and is based on the Diaclone black version of Tracks. For those concerned about availability, it's worth noting last year's TTS exclusives were fairly readily available online for some time after the event.

We can't be sure just yet if this image relates in any way to the toy it's standing in for or just a silhouette of art assets being used to develop it, but this does stand as the final official confirmation we've been waiting for that this figure is coming.
Now we can only wait to see what form it finally takes. Keep reading for the full size image!
