Transformers fans in Asia will be glad to know they can give or get the gift of MP-02 Masterpiece Soundwave in time for the holidays when the figure will be re-issued. According to the Transformers Asia page on Facebook, the figure will be re-issued along with 5 tape-bots and a bonus die-cast Cassette player.
This is said to be a Hasbro release in Taiwan this December, 2016. No word on pricing just yet. Read on to see the promotional image and other details on the MP-02 Soundwave Masterpiece Reissue.
It's new stock photo day from Japan, as early this morning a round of new upcoming Transformers product photos was handed out. First up is Masterpiece Cheetor, now designated as MP-34 and given a projected retail release in January of 2017!
Coming in at a price of 7,000 Yen it is considerably lower than MP Optimus Primal's 12,000 Yen, being more closely in line with the Autobot Car pricepoint. The new photos finally show off the beast mode in color, and all we can say is, spot-on smooth! Keep reading to take a look!
Thanks to pancrazi on Weibo we have a few images showing the debut of Masterpiece Dirge! The third member of the conehead seeker group is finally accounted for, not terribly long after the reveal of Thrust! These photos actually show Dirge being unpacked and added to the display case, along with a good closeup on the figure's robot mode. Besides the serial number, an unsurprising MP-11ND, we don't have any information or release details for this figure. But as final as that display piece looks, it must not be too far future!

Inferno is finally joining Takara's Masterpiece series! MP-33 Masterpiece Inferno transforms into a fully licensed Mitsubishi Fuso T951 Ladder Fire Truck. Just like in the animation, his ladder completely disappears when in robot mode! The figure is listed now for a pre-order price of $149.99 USD slated to begin shipping in November 2016.

At Wonderfest this summer, Cheetor was obviously the bigger show of the Masterpieces. But G1 was represented too, albeit just by the grey prototype of Inferno and a finished Delta Magnus. Autobase Aichi grabbed a few pictures of their display case, giving us an especially good look at Delta Magnus, and a close up of its alternate faces. If you want to check out the upcoming entires in the G1 MP run, keep reading for the mirrored photos!
