And that is because Hasbro doesn't just release the Takara versions, which would be faster. No, they make them with cheaper materials and I guess the safety test takes awhile.
Oh, and here's hoping for a Wheeljack MP real soon!!
Oh not at all. I like ease and hate confusion.
I went ahead and shipped mine...
In other Masterpiece news, MP-13 has arrived to the US and should be hitting PoL's everywhere! I'm waiting for those Kreon Combiners to hit my PoL before shipping Soundwave. Please hurry!
All three threads started around the same time. To avoid confusion and redundant threads, we stuck with just one posting. No offenses, we hope
No. These haven't even been officially announced by Takara. And if the track records of the previously released US MPs give us any indication of a release schedule, it'll be at least a year after their Japan release before they hit the US.
Hey, that's even better. I like that we won't be getting a lot retools.
Yea, the MP line isnt going to take the cheap way out like Generations did. We'll get a whole new mold for Sunstreaker. so they can repaint that into the police and red Diaclone vehicles too.
So any news that these will be brought to the US via hasbro?
We're still looking for corroboration on this, so file firmly in rumor territory for now, but it may be that the long-anticipated Masterpiece Jazz might be on the way. On Twitter, snakas of Autobase Aichi tweeted a silhouetted image depicting Jazz with the MP-31 text. Again, we're unsure of an original source for the information, but with Wonderfest happening today in Japan we're not ruling out the possibility of this as a reveal. We expect to have more Wonderfest coverage to share later tonight, so keep watching for that and more updates about the possible Masterpiece Jazz!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of Titans Return and Masterpiece discussion this week. Melllvarr has his hands on Masterpiece Ironhide and surprise! He actually likes it! Also we talk about the new photos of MP Hot Rod and discuss new images of MP Optimus Primal. We discuss news coming out of Nuremberg Toy Fair, the upcoming start date of Transformers 5 filming and more!
We have a video mirrored from the Chinese Youku streaming video service that gives us a look at the full process of transforming the new Masterpiece Hot Rod. As expected from the older photos, a majority of the car shell is compressed within the torso and backpack. Once everything is unfolded, it seems the front wheels won't even touch the ground due to some leftover robot elements under the car. Otherwise it seems like everything comes together solidly for both modes. Keep reading to check out the embedded video.
TFW2005 member Monrai has posted to that site a series of scans from Hyper Hobby Magazine showing off MP Optimus Primal! The Maximal leader's transformation is shown, specifically how the head works now that his robot mode chest piece is part of the gorilla gut. Also, we get our first look at his swappable faceplates, including various lipped expressions and a "battlemask" (AKA Toy Look) version. Keep reading to see!
While TakaraTomy is region-locking their weekly Beast Wars videos on YouTube, ironically they're not apparently doing so on Japanese streaming site NicoVideo. This week, after the Beast Wars recap, QTransformers Arcee shows off the grayscale prototype of MP Beast Convoy! The video can't be embedded, so keep reading to see screengrabs and a link!
