Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave Laserbeak, MP-14 Red Alert Prototypes 1st Looks; Amazon Japan Exclusive Energon Cubes w/ Soundwave
Peter Van - Wednesday, June 13, 2012

As a precursor to Tokyo Toy Show, everything that Takara Tomy was hoping to keep a lid on has come out. First it was the colored looks at Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Sideswipe and now gray prototype images of MP-13 Soundwave and Laserbeak and MP-14 Red Alert have been posted on Amazon Japan.

The retailer will offer exclusive Energon cubes with MP-13 Soundwave.

The images show off Soundwave and his cassette minion Laserbeak in both robots and their alternate cassette player and cassette modes; and Red Alert in robot and vehicle modes.

Amazon will exclusively offer two Energon cubes with MP-13 Soundwave.

This is similar to the pile drivers the retailer is offering on the MP-12 Lambor.

The figures are due in December 2012 with Soundwave reported to cost 15800 Yen (~$199 USD) and Red Alert for 5800 Yen (~$73 USD). Additional information may be revealed by Takara this weekend at the Tokyo Toy Show.

Looks like that extra arcade money I've been saving up is going somewhere else! Also it looks like Soundwave's buttons are pushable on the front.

More MasterPiece News
With the rumors of a new MP Optimus Prime that have begun to circulate, we can't help but wonder if the MP-10G Gold Optimus Prime that just popped up on Taobao will be the final release of that oft-recolored, oft knocked-off mold. There's a few good reasons that this could be true, and RAC's going to go over them in this post. Read on!
A recent listing on Taobao offers a possible tip-off of a MP10G Optimus Prime Golden Lagoon Edition coming from Takara Tomy. The listing indicates the MP10G will be out in July for a price of 12,800 JPY ~ 120 USD. No images yet, read on to see the translated details for more info till we know more. Keep in mind, this is not confirmed till we get the official word.
From our forums, we've got another video by chuckdawg1999, this time taking a look at the newly released MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rod. The video serves as a good comparison between this Hot Rod and the original release, really highlighting the significance of the new deco. Plus of course we have a look at the Targetmaster figure itself, originally seen on the US release of Masterpiece Rodimus Prime. You can find the video embedded below; click through to watch now!
Though we don't think anyone could be blamed for confusing this with cab-robot Ultra Magnus, MP-711 Convoy, the Masterpiece Optimus Prime redecoed and sold exclusively by 7 Eleven in Japan is currently being shipped out. Via pcwr_Etchy and Alfes2010 on Twitter, we have some in hand images of the newest member of the MP-10 redeco family. This release doesn't feature any new accessories or mold changes that we know of, but does have a new deco for just about everything, including the Matrix which now looks positively watermelon. You can check out the gallery below to have a look at this figure and see the details of its new deco.
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!
