Jack - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Thanks to Benscollectables who have posted a video review for the Takara Tomy Transformers MP-14 Masterpiece Red Alert action figure set that is just out in Japan. Get the scoop on this repaint of the Masterpiece MP-12 Sideswipe release just like they did it back in the G1 days. Watch the Transformers MP-14 Masterpiece Red Alert Video Review below now.
Have you ever wondered what your Masterpiece Transformers might look like if they were 90% transparent? Probably not, which I think makes this find all the more interesting. In the Transformers Masterpiece Zone Facebook group, Justin Hollers shared some images of what you get when you photograph Masterpiece figures. With X-rays. The metal components remain opaque, but everything else becomes translucent. Interestingly, some of these even end up looking like schematics or CAD lines. It's an interesting and unique look at these figures. Check it out mirrored below!
Dengeki Hobby has posted a couple of news stories to get us up to date on TakaraTomy's ever-popular Masterpiece line! First up is the official package art for MP-36 Megatron, and you can just about hear Frank Welker's maniacal cackle looking at the image. Also of note are some reissues due for April next year - keep reading for the specifics!
Via Loopaza on Facebook, we have our first look at Masterpiece Artfire! Just a matter of hours after its existence was first revealed, we can now see exactly what's coming our way in 2017. Besides of course the new deco, which incorporates elements of the toy's sticker detailing, Artfire comes with his very own articulated Nightstick Targetmaster partner. There's several angles plus nice closeups on the brand new Targetmaster mold, and you can see them all in the gallery below!
