MP-25 Masterpiece Tracks With Toy-Style Faceplate - But What Does It Mean?
RAC - Friday, February 12, 2016


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!
The owner of the prototype who wishes to stay anonymous has said "it does have the toy style face. The faceplate/eyes/headcrest is one removable piece". A removable piece. These days, Masterpiece heads are not so easy to get into, some of them are glued, and certainly MP-25 and MP-26 don't have removable faces although the seams appear to be there, so does that actually lend more credence to the notion that a switchable battle mask face for the Tracks/Road Rage mould was an early concept that was later abandoned? Or, would a plastic test shot that comes well after the grey prototype phase of a toy's life be evidence that the battle mask concept for MP Tracks is something more recent and indicative of an upcoming release?

I suspect we'll find out soon enough.

More MasterPiece News
Thanks to the Hobbymizer fans page, we have word that we'll be getting two new reveals at Hong Kong Toys And Games Fair 2018. Much like last year, Hasbro's got some surprises ready for Asian fans with the MPM05 Barricad, MPM06 figures, that while has not been named, is clearly the Ironhide character. Read on for the full quote on these new Masterpieces to come.
Sunstreaker is the latest release in the Masterpiece Autobot car lineup, fresh out from TakaraTomy as of the end of December. We've got a couple of reviews to bring you of this anticipated counterpart to Sideswipe tonight. First up, Anthony from TFU.info has made his video review debut looking at Sunstreaker, giving an essential overview in less than 7 minutes. Joining that in our mini-roundup is a longer format review from TMan978 on our forums who passed his video along to us today. You can find both embedded in the full post below, starting with the TFU.info review. Click through and check it out!
Hasbro Asia's collector coin bonus for non-Japanese Asian markets is often very well presented for a little hunk of metal. But this one - seen via the Masterpiece Transformers Facebook page - has one of the most ingenious bits of packaging yet: a sleeve designed to look like a cassette box with a double-sided package representing both Autobot and Decepticon Tapes inside! The coin itself features the head of Enemy, and the reverse calls him out along with the other figures in the set: Nightstalker, Wing Thing, and Stripes. Keep reading to see!
Thanks to sig_yan on Twitter, we've got a few early shots of the TakaraTomy Mall exclusive MP15/16-E Cassettebot vs Cassettetron set. Though containing an assortment of semi-obscure Autobot and Decepticon cassette characters - and Wingthing, the Action Master partner that later became a cassette character - this is most notable for Nightstalker. This gave us our first look at the base tooling clearly meant to be Steeljaw, hinting at a Masterpiece Blaster somewhere in the future. Keep reading for a quick look at the contents, and some detail shots of Nightstalker!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted images of MP-39 Sunstreaker's Hasbro Asia collector coin to Facebook! As is fairly typical for Hasbro Asia, the coin depicts Sunstreakers face and comes shipped in a cardboard sleeve in the shape of his chest. Keep reading to see!
