MP-36 Megatron Package Art Plus Reissues Of MP-11 Starscream, MP-13 Soundwave & Cassettes In April 2017
RAC - Tuesday, December 06, 2016


Dengeki Hobby has posted a couple of news stories to get us up to date on TakaraTomy's ever-popular Masterpiece line! First up is the official package art for MP-36 Megatron, and you can just about hear Frank Welker's maniacal cackle looking at the image. Also of note are some reissues due for April next year - keep reading for the specifics!
April 2017 will see the re-release of MP-11 Starscream - the version with the cape and crown. Also due that month are MP-13 Soundwave, plus MP-15 Rumble & Ravage plus MP-16 Frenzy and Buzzsaw.

Megatron is due at the beginning of April for a hefty 23,000 Yen. (About $203 USD as of this writing.) Starscream, as Megatron would tell you, is worth less; he comes out later in the month for 13,000 Yen ($113 USD as of 12/06/16.) Soundwave is 15,800 ($136), also due in late April, and includes Laserbeak. The two cassette sets are also for late April and run 4,200 Yen. ($37)

More MasterPiece News
Thanks to Alfes2010, we've got a selection of nice photos of the just-released in Japan Targetmaster Hot Rod Masterpiece figure. The photos shared via Twitter show off MP-40 in a standard overview of the robot and vehicle modes, including weapons attachment options like the new Targetmaster connection on the hood of the car. We also have some side by side shots with the original MP-28 Hot Rod, which serves to demonstrate very effectively the deco changes between releases. We've mirrored a number of these photos, which you can find below!
From a Japanese hobby magazine via Singapore fan group Planet Iacon, we have an image that seems to show chest and shoulder design art for a new G1-styled Optimus Prime figure. Is this a new Masterpiece version 3.0? Or something else entirely? It'll be a good while before we know, but meanwhile, keep reading to see the image!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted images of the packaging for MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus, due to ship on the 24th from them! As is custom, Hasbro Asia has released a special collector coin with unique sleeve as part of the packaging. Click through to see both the sleeve and the packing for MP-40 itself!
Last night we found out about the new anime colors variant of Masterpiece Prowl, MP-17+, which would release as a TakaraTomy Mall exclusive. But surprisingly today, it looks like that will also be available for purchase in the US. US retailers, such as sponsor BigBadToyStore now have preorder listings for MP-17+, marked as a Hasbro product, and due in September. The timing - and similar pricing - sure makes this sound like an effort at a simultaneous (or as near as we can get) Masterpiece release by both Hasbro and TakaraTomy, which could have some interesting potential if it becomes a regular occurrence! Click through for a product link.
The ToysRUs Australia Facebook page has announced that now through February 25th, Australian collectors can order MP-34S Shadow Panther via the retailer website. The figure is a black recolor of MP Cheetor - based on a black recolor of 1996 Deluxe Cheetor - and is expected to ship in October and costs $109.93 AUD, or about USD $86. Keep reading for the link, and for photos!
