Yeah I am pretty sure they will include them and be removeable since MP SS and RA both had removeble ones as well. I was sad to see you will sell your BT and Alternators....those are what got be back into TFs.
Yeah I'm pretty sure the classics line used the shoulder missiles just so that way they could just reuse the mold and repaint it to bluestreak. I was one when the cartoon came out and can still remember having a Prowl and always wondering why it came with missiles on the shoulder when he didn... read more
Well the classics line is what comes to my mind and why I posed the question. I know the G1 toy did, but I don't think i really paid much attention to the cartoon variance. I would expect that he would come with them, but they be removable. I guess we'll soon find out.
I'm pretty sure these MPs are actually trying to capture the spirit of the cartoon, not the original toys. Hence the reason why they are being scaled the way they are.
I doubt that the missile launchers would be permanently attached to Prowl. Masterpiece Transformers tend to represent the original toy as much as, or even more than, the cartoon appearance of the characters.
Prowl's G1 toy did come with missiles, which these MPs are trying to capture the spirit of.
Prowl better not come with missiles on his shoulders. Because in the G1 cartoon Prowl did not have shoulder Missiles. BlueStreak and smokescreen did however. That's how in season one prowl and BlueStreak looked different, besides color of course.
This is just a teaser, so I'm assuming that he'll come with them. They've been pretty accurate this far with the MP line.
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!
