Courtesy of Cybergundam Blog, we have higher resolution versions of official Masterpiece Datsun images we have seen prior.. First up is Masterpiece MP-17 Prowl, with images showing his scale compared to previous Masterpiece releases. Next up to the plate is MP-18 Bluestreak, and in turn we get a nice group shot of a handful of the latest Autobot Masterpiece releases. Both figures are set for a release on August 31st at a price of ¥5,800, and are available for pre-order from any of our site sponsors.

Daaaaaaamn these look good standing in a group! The more I see of Prowl the more I want him. Honestly not too sure about Bluestreak. I've never really liked Bluestreak for some reason.

I'm loving this mould. I can't wait to add all three to my collection. Seeing them next to Optimus Prime just sells it. Its nice to see the shoulder cannons are part of the figure so you can have Prowl animation or toy accurate. I'm guessing that is why we haven't seen Smokescreen yet since his shoulder cannons were quite different in the show.

This is far from an actual complaint, so it should be taken as a silly comment...

...But I hope before too long we can get an Autobot that isn't red/black/white/blue like a Hound, Bumblebee or Sunstreaker, just to offset the Autobots a tad colorwise. As much as I want Jazz, Ratchet and Ironhide, they're all the same colors as the ones we've gotten already! Haha.

Smokescreen should help a lot (at least helping to dilute the black/white with some more blue), and I guess Rodimus counts with his yellows/oranges, (but I don't display him with the rest of the G1 cast... He'll go with the eventual Galvatron) but my girlfriend pointed it out the other day. "So are the good guys all the same colors? Is that how you tell them apart? Is it like a team thing?"

And from that point on, all I saw was the same colors on all the MP Autobots.

Prowl is definitely a must-have for me. Bluestreak is a solid want-if-I-have-the-money.

Soooo sexy. I'm really glad they gave Bluestreak the black hood, it really makes him stand out. These figures look so amazing. I just noticed their legs look kind of skinny in comparison to the Sideswipe mold, but it works, considering the original figures. I also like all the detailing on the legs that matches the originals. Really looking forward to these figures! I hope they do stagger the releases though, I don't want to have to wait until September and then buy them both at the same time. #-o

One of these images needs to be my desktop background... and my cellphone wallpaper... and printed and framed and displayed proudly on my wall. Okay, maybe not the last one, but you know what I mean. :lol:

That's a rather good question. What accessories will these guys and Smokescreen be coming with?

I was thinking the same thing! Between Prime & TigerTracks, there should be enough color to go around.

I could be wrong but I think they're only trying to display the 1984 line up from the G1 characters or as I call them...the original 18 so I would not be suprised if Takara produces at least the folowing line up* and their subsequent redecos along with the popular characters like Grimlock and Rodimus Prime...may be an Arcee too

Ah, I forget about TigerTracks, since I don't plan to get him. I don't count him, though, as he's not technically a vintage G1 Autobot. But exactly, just that yellow helps to break things up.

I'm all for any of the G1 Season 1 Autobots first, as those are some of my favorites. Besides the obvious repaints of the S1 cars and trucks, the only others I'm really looking forward to see as MPs are Tracks, the rest of the Dinobots, and Ultra Magnus in full-on armor. (I guess Grimlock's silver/grays help break up the monotony of the red/black/white/blue MP Autobots, too... An entire Dinobots team would kick ass!)

At this point though, any and all G1 MP Autobots are a guaranteed buy, whatever order they come in.

Honestly, I highly doubt that we will see the other Dinobots from Takara. Grimlock was a special case because he is a huge fan favorite but the others aren't as iconic. To get the others I think we will have to wait for a 3rd Party to do them.

I too will buy any and all G1 Autobots in the MP line.

Till all are MINE :D!

I've got em' all on preorder now and I think I'll likely buy every single MP that Takara comes out with (with the exception of exclusives like Tigertracks since I've no real desire for such a repaint).

I hope they can get their license rights again to do Sunstreaker but I won't hold my breath.

I can't wait to see who's next :).

Yes, MP Ironhide and Ratchet would be super sweet (especially since I didn't get the PP05 PE figures).

I'm guessing he's referring to the eHobby/Diaclone repaints (which would likely show up as exclusives just like Tigertracks did).

I decided to bite the bullet and order these two through hlj.com. Never bought anything from them before for two reasons; 1) don't get much in the way of Takara figures (except MP) 2) their site was a **** to navigate.

The site seems to have been improved and for the first time something I searched for appeared :shock: So made an account and pre-ordered (cancelling my BBTS pre-orders at the same time) and will most likely get Smokescreen from them if all goes well. Depending on how this goes I just might be getting all my MP's from them seeing as the shipping on one of these guys is a little less than the price difference for the imports U.S. retailers are charging.

I have the same concerns with HLJ. I realize the price might be cheaper, but I'm worried shipping will cost a lot more. I know that ehobbybaseshop and robotkingdom both have lower prices but their shipping costs are through the roof. Keep us updated with how much shipping is and how you like their customer service, etc. If you have a good experience, then I'll probably start importing from them. Hopefully it goes well!
