Our forums member koolkollectibleskhai has shared a new video with us, talking about Masterpiece Loud Pedal, this year's Tokyo Toy Show exclusive. In the video we get to have a very detailed look at the car's deco, a close view of the unique head sculpt, and then a nice overview of the paint work on the robot mode. Plus we get a quick run through of the accessories and a comparison to Masterpiece Tracks to finish things off! The video is embedded below, so keep reading and have a look.
Thanks to Facebook user Arturo Milomir we have a scan of one of the pages from this month's Figure King Magazine featuring Masterpiece Inferno! Along with showing off the basics of the figure much as we've seen from its reveal at the toy shows, this gives an interesting new detail - where the ladder goes. It's quite an elegant bit of work, utilizing otherwise empty space inside the body to compress and store away the ladder completely. We've mirrored (and straightened out) the image of the magazine page, so keep reading and have a look!
