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
Autobase Aichi has posted images and details of a new Kabaya series of blind-boxed toys due in May. The DCollection set features Optimus Prime, Starscream, and Megatron, and features squatty "super-deformed" styling. There'll be chase versions of all three figures in clear plastic as well. While they're not super-articulated, they're also only roughly $25 for a case of 8 going by Japanese SRP, so they're definitely more in the small novelty toy range. Keep reading for images!
As it's Tuesday, the latest episode of the Japanese-language short series is up for viewing! This week's QTransformers episode guest-stars Tracks - the bot of the hour - and is titled "Mystery of Game Balance." We're relatively certain that game balance is indeed a mystery to anyone involved with the production of Mystery of Convoy. Keep reading to watch!
The Dengeki Hobby website - not to be confused with the TAGHobby news aggregator site, Dengeki Hobby magazine, or TAG Hobby Magazine which doesn't exist - has posted images of QT15 Hound, QT16 Bluestreak, QT17 Tracks, and QT18 Nemesis Prime! It's worth noting that Nemesis Prime is based off of the Movie Optimus Prime QTransformers mold, and perhaps not surprisingly, Movie Prime takes to an evil paintjob very well. Keep reading to see!
They D-Style Transformers Nemesis Prime Plastic Model Kit we reported on from Wonder Festival Winter is how up for pre-order at BBTS. Get a look at the official images of the Super Deformed figure in robot, alternate mode and with his weapons. The figure is listed for shipping June 2015 at a price of $34.99 USD. Pre-Order now at bigbadtoystore.com. Read on to see the official images.
This week's episode of QTransformers is as nonsensical as ever for a non-speaker of Japanese, but does seem to focus on explorers in some way, as the title implies. That said, you do at least get to see QTransformers Sideswipe and Sunstreaker joining the conversation, so at least there's new character designs to see. Keep reading to watch!
