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!

More Generation 1 Japan News
Speculation had been that the natural foil to Mega Drive Megatron would be Super FamiConvoy, but sadly it is not to be. TakaraTomy has elected to identify the G1 Autobot leader as Optimus Prime, and that share some initials with Original Playstation. The first render indeed shows Optimus Prime with a PS1 body. In a way it makes sense, as the structure of the PS1 (rectangle with a circle in the middle) is pretty similar to the Mega Drive. Keep reading for the first photo!
TakaraTomy is now offering a series of limited, signed-and-numbered wall prints of classic G1 boxart as the Transformers Master Art Collection. Each piece, priced between 35-45,000 Yen (approximately $350-450) will be signed by original painter Shin Ueda, and includes Optimus Prime's Japanese boxart (which is similar to but not precisely matching the US version) as well as a number of back-of-package group paintings. Keep reading for sample images and a link!
The massive, nontransforming Gigantic Action Megazarak (AKA Scorponok) has been featured on Dengeki Hobby Online, complete with full specifications, price, and release date. Keep reading for details and an image!
eHobby has updated their Transformers Cloud story page- again, with a long text piece we couldn't even hope to get an idea of with mechanical translation. But, there's a neat new picture of Rodimus taking a major swing with his sword at someone. We've also got a variety of Fall of Cybertron characters like Bruticus in the background, and Shockwave is using his new Whirl body in a completely undocumented and unintended walker-tank mode. Keep reading for a link and a photo!
The Sega Store is, naturally, carrying TakaraTomy's Mega Drive Megatron - and if you order your Genesis-shaped tyrant from them, you get a limited-edition bonus T-Shirt! Sega Store is asking 10,800 Yen (about $108) for the figure, and I'm reasonably certain they'll only ship within Japan. Click through to see the shirt, and then consult your favorite middleman!
