Transformers MP-12T Masterpiece Tigertrack Exclusive Coming in June
By Jack on Wednesday, January 23, 2013
I guess we should have this one coming, with the penchant for repaints that Transformers have always maintained, it was just a matter of time before we would get a repaint of the Masterpiece Lambor Sideswipe in yellow colors as the Tiger Track figure. BBTS have just posted a new pre-order page confirming the rumours that have been circling. Look for the figure to be out in June 2013 for with a pre-order price of $99,99 USD. No images yet, just a place holder of the orginal Tigertrack release. Check out the pre-order now at bigbadtoystore.com

Interesting....so it takes less than a month for the repaint retool of MP Sideswipe to MP Red Alert, but then takes 6 months for a straight-up repaint of an already existing mold? I don't get that one. If this one was indeed a tweek of the MP Sideswipe mold to turn into Sunstreaker I would buy... read more
I honestly thought we would see the G2 Sideswipe repaint before tiger track. I might get this as a stand in for Sunstreaker in case they never make an MP Sunstreaker.
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!
