Maz of TFSquareOne has posted photos sent to him of a test shot of MP-25 Tracks. This in and of itself isn't too noteworthy - except that it has a new head with an unproduced toy-style faceplate! What does it mean? Is this toy of the unproduced past or the yet to be produced future? Well, Maz has a few ideas about that - keep reading for an excerpt from his post, photos, and a link to the full article!
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!
