Cybergundam Blog has reported that TakaraTomy has delayed the Japanese domestic release for MP-13 Masterpiece Soundwave and Encore 23 Fortress Maximus both by about a month. Originally planned for release on December 15 this year, Masterpiece Soundwave and his pal, Laserbeak, have been moved to January 26, 2013. Slated for release in February, the venerated Fortress Maximus will now be released on March 30, 2013. Expect pre-orders at our site sponsors to be moved back.

Soundwave was going to be my Christmas present to myself, but some extra saving time is good as well, so not too worried.

Edit: BBTS has updated Soundwave.

Yeah, I too REALLY need time to save up for these guys, so I'm fine with this.

I do sympathize with everyone who wanted 'em ASAP, and hope this isn't due to potential QC issues.

I'm a bit disappointed in not getting Soundwave as soon (I was REALLY looking forward to him), but at the same time, with so many things I've got on preorder for November and December, this will help a lot to give my wallet a bit of a break.

Ditto! But this won't bug me one bit, it's only postponing the envitable of making Fortress Max mine...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Maybe this means that some of the feedback about paint QC on Lambor actually DID make it to somebody in management. Here's to hoping the delay means a respectable quality Masterpiece fig.

I am guessing that unless the "early bird" option was a means to getting it a month early, I will be getting mine in April. Fine by me, since I am both reorganizing the way I collect and what series I hope to collect. :-B

Plus, seeing how I passed on "Masterpiece" Soundwave for "Encore" Soundblaster, I think I will use that money to get "GT" Star Saber. That, and "Gutto" Ginrai if somebody here thinks it is worth owning. :-?

I seriously hope you get it, dude. From the translations I have done, both e-HOBBY and Toy Hobby have listed this as a 25th anniversary-based limited release. So unless they were offering a limited "early bird" release, try to preorder it soon. Because this might see the fate that Predaking's first reissue faced.

So my hope with him is that you will be :KREMZEEK: and neither :BANG_HEAD: and/or :sad: in the end. ;)^

I'd rather see a delayed arrival with decent QC than a rushed shipment that arrives with piss-poor paint jobs.

Besides, I could always use some more time to save up on my fig funds.

I'm so glad to have the extra month! While if I were getting MP Soundwave for Christmas I'd be pissed but there was no way to have funding ready for it and do Christmas presents.

The same as everyone else in this topic, my wallet is glad for the temporary stay of execution but I wonder.

Does this mean MP-15 & 16 (the cassettes) are also pushed back?

For once I'm happy a toy (fort max) is late. I sure could use the extra saving time with all the awesome stuff Mr. Takara has been giving us these last few months.

Kuma, did they say anything else about any other potential 25th anniversary masterforce releases?

Darn... Paid for Fortress Maximus already (through Anime-Export). Ah well, I can wait. Living in Europe, and getting him directly from Japan means I'm probably getting him quite a bit earlier than the (regular) BBTS orders would arrive here anyhow.

Soundwave is more annoying, because he's my current PoL hold-up... And that's a PoL which still contains my Encore Sounblaster and Twincast! But there, the delay in paying for that arriving pre-order is indeed a plus during the expensive holiday season.

I didn't have enough money at this moment to begin with so no worries.

Ya it kinda sucks we have to wait a little longer but like everyone else I can save some more cash. Because the MP line Prime line FOC/Generations line and a bunch of 3rd party have had my wallet doing magic tricks with my money and only the disappearing act no reappearing lol.

I think i can speak for the greater % of collectors when i say "Thank you, Takara!"
This gives me a chance at saving the money so my wallet won't pull the trigger. :KREMZEEK:

Duno if I should be glad or dissapointed.

After spending 95% of my time getting cash for Halo 4, I guess a little reward for my hard work could be paid in the form of MP Soundwave... :grin:

Well, I'm kinda disappointed it won't be out in time for Christmas, but I planned on asking for it as my gift from my girlfriend so I'm sure she'll be glad to wait awhile.

Takara can keep pushing it back as far as I'm concerned.
