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?

On the forums, koolkollectibleskhai has left us an interesting video today. Having recently purchased the rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe, he identified a few differences versus the original. While the new, redesigned collector coin is quite obvious, there are some more subtle changes, some good, some not. It's definitely an interesting video, and could be helpful if you're considering picking up a Sideswipe. Keep reading to see the embedded video!
