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.
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!

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!

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!
TaoTaoToys on Weibo has shared two photos showing the outer box for the soon to be released Masterpiece Sunstreaker. MP-39 has its official release date in Japan at the end of this month, so it's not entirely surprising that a few pieces may have found their way out to other channels at this point. The packaging is largely the standard fare with the familiar styling and array of stock imagery we've already seen, but it's good as a start point to get the excitement going for the release in just a couple of weeks' time!
