Takara Designer Hints at Next Transformers Masterpiece Action Figure

By deceptikhan on Tuesday, November 24, 2009



Well for those that said Buster Prime looks of masterpice quality, its probably b/c he was MADE by the guy in charge of all MP's except MP-03. Here is a translation of the Buster Prime interview with designer Hirinori Kobayashi. He mentions why they made EZ collections Devastator.

He also mentions a little hint about the NEXT Masterpiece
    Hirinori Kobayashi came up with the idea of Buster Optimus Prime and designed the muffler > gun transformation. It was also difficult to recreate the exact hue of purplish blue with the plastic, which he considers as more film accurate.

    He belongs to domestic product team, and for ROTF he has been mainly responsible for some modifications of the products aimed at Japanese release.

    He explains the reason of developing EZ Devastator as, "While RD-16 Devastator is impressively huge, its strength is in gimmicks. I thought Japanese TF fans might not be satisfied with it, since even 25 years old (G1) item achieved Robot > Vehicle > Combine modes."

    He was in charge of all Masterpiece products, except for MP-3. He again hints of the new MP next year 2010, which has a significance to Transformers. ("2010" is s Japanese title for G1 season 3.)

    One of his favourite (of the products he developed) is Rescue Hero Gobots Chopper!

Not Hot Rod, Rodimus Prime though. Im guessing that IS teh next Masterpiece. And im actually excited for it, i hope Hasbro can bring it over just as fast. I highly doubt they will release another Prime repaint after JUST doing that with MP-01b.

I'll bet the next MP will be Hot Rod, and then FansProject will make a trailer that turns it into Rodimus. Or maybe they will re-re-re-re release Optimus in Blue and Black and call it the Magnus Movie Version - Diaclone. I intend to custom paint a MP Prime these colors anyway so it's not s... read more

As I said in the MP-01b thread, i noticed Rodimus Prime on his arm comm, and thagt inclines me to believe that it IS Rodimus Prime. Which, lets be honest, would be friggin awesome! I was one of the few back in the day to actually LIKE Rodimus Prime and when my Optimus toy broke, i replaced him w... read more

If TT can't get Rodimus where he could go pre-Prime and Prime, I think I'd still get him if they make him true-ish to his animation model's transformation (link) but with that said, I'm hoping for Galvatron, more.

Probably unlikely, but you never know.. MP Unicron would be freakin' AMAZING.. Maybe they have been working on it in secret for a few years to prepare for a 2010 release? That would be nice lolz.

I would hate to see Bumblebee in that size. It'll be a Unicron nightmare all over again. But since that's the only evidence we have to go on right now, maybe Rodimus will make an appearance.

If it's between Galvatron and Rodimus Prime, which it probably would be, I hope it's Galvatron. There's speculation that because the new pics of MP-1B shows Convoy and Rodimus Prime in his communicators, the next MP will probably be Rodimus Prime. Supposedly in past MP Convoy releases,... read more

Personally I'd love either Rodimus Prime or Galvatron as a tribute to 2010 (season 3). Both have awesome designs and are among the most popular TF's of all time. Not real thilled about Hot Rod as an idea though, I always thought that he was just another kid bot like Cheetor and Bluestreak, b... read more

Following up on the new, Masterpiece-styled DiaBattles seen at Tokyo Toy Show, site sponsor Robot Kingdom reports thatTakaraTomy has announced a new line called Diaclone Reboot for winter of this year! It's not currently known if the line will be reissues or new items... but unless it's both, that DiaBattles does make us lean towards the former. Keep reading for the image and announcement!
QTransformers has done pretty well for itself in Japan. Well enough to attract licensed characters to the line, such as this Hello Kitty that turns into a G1 Optimus Prime-style truck. Release (in Japan) is set for July at a price of 1200 Yen. Keep reading to see the official images from Dengeki Hobby!
While not strictly Transformers-related, it's still pretty fascinating: photos are surfacing on Weibo (by way of Twitter) of a Tokyo Toy Show display that appears to show a Masterpiece-style take on the Diaclone figure Diabattles, one of the more sci-fi themed Diaclone figures that was not selected to become a Transformer. Perhaps even more interesting is the inclusion of Masterpiece-styled Diaclone pilots! First photos after the jump!
Autobase Aichi has shared an image of Kabaya's Seacon kits! Previously only the Piranacon/King Poseidon form had been shown, but now we've got a smallish image of the smallish kits for you to check out. Keep reading to see!
QTransformers is coming back for another round of entertaining confusion! (For those of us who don't speak Japanese anyway!) Starting on July 6th, the second season of web animation shorts will feature Decepticons Starscream, Shockwave, and Soundwave! Of the three, we're able to identify Shockwave's voice actor as one Kaito Ishikawa - but that's the extent of our ability to decipher kanji. Keep reading for a look at the tiny Decepticons!
