We just got word from BBTS that Takara Tomy have announced the MP-21R Masterpiece Red Bumblebee figure. This exciting repaint is a throwback to the original G1 assortment that featured both red and yellow versions of Bumblebee. The figure is estimated to arrive in late December 2015 with a current pre-order price of $64.99 USD. Read on to see the image below for more details. Pre-order now at bigbadtoystore.com
The bonus item for the Hasbro Asia rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe is, in fact, a collector's coin! This shocking development is entirely
precedented, with the vast majority of Hasbro Asia bonuses taking coin form. As is typical however, it's a very nice coin with a nice Sideswipe-themed package. Read on to see!
New in from one of the Japanese hobby magazines we've got a look at the next upcoming Masterpiece figure - Bumblebee Red Body! Yes, we're getting another run of MP-21, this time in Cliffjumperish red. The text of the feature only refers to it as Bumble, so this won't strictly preclude a proper Cliffjumper farther down the road. This means that you can now own in Masterpiece fashion one of the color-variant Autobot Minicars from your youth, just as you'd always hoped! Click through to see the scan.
Are we sure this isn't Skywarp in disguise? Because it just appeared out of nowhere: a preorder page for the MP-11 version of Masterpiece Starscream at ToysRUs! Unlike the Takara release it has a toy-accurate blue nosecone, though it's lost its coronation gear. It's due out October 1st at a price of $59.99 - if you're interested, it may be best to preorder now before TRU jacks the price up like they always do. Read on for a link!
