Coinciding with the launch of the preorder period, TakaraTomy Mall has added photos of the four Masterpiece cassette characters making up their combined MP-15/16-E set. Enemy, Wingthing, Stripes, and new mold Night Stalker are all on display in full color and deco, showing both robot modes and their individual cassette form decos. There's no clear indication of when preorders for the set will be closed, but the page now gives a delivery estimate of December for the set. You can find all the images in the gallery below!
Right behind Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee, it appears MPM-4 Optimus is now becoming available at retail in Asia as well. On Youtube, hirohitokusanagi
has posted three videos featuring the new Masterpiece figure. First up is a demo of the transformation. It's compared repeatedly to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime in the way it works, but none of the numerous steps look particularly difficult. The next two videos show the weapons, plus comparisons alongside other figures. You can find all three embedded below!
Just like Sunstreaker, we've got a TakaraTomy site update for MP-12+, the cartoon deco rerelease of Masterpiece Sideswipe. The differences largely come down to replacing silver paint elements with white, though there may or may not be some minor mold changes to the face. In any case, this release also comes with all the existing piledriver attachments previously spread over several different retailer editions of the standard MP-12. You can find all 25 images in the gallery below!
From TakaraTomy's big website update today, we've got a big stack of official photos of Masterpiece Sunstreaker. Many are images that we've seen before in promoting the figure, but new to this update are a set of turnarounds that show the toy in robot mode and both configurations of its vehicle mode, giving a "360 view" of it that might offer some angles we haven't seen so far. All of the photos - there's over 30 of them - can be found in the gallery below!
Not content to merely drive RFC's diecast bananas via giving a duplicate Masterpiece its own number, HasbroAsia is including a set of literal diecast bananas as their region-exclusive bonus for MP-38 Optimus Primal Legendary Leader Version! Site Sponsor Robotkingdom has photos of said bananas as well as package shots of the more toy-oriented version of the figure, which is due to start shipping this Saturday. Keep reading to see!
