YES YES YES YES! :APPLAUSE: Sunstreaker and his unique transformation design has a special page in the history of Transformers and in some regards, more significant than SS or RA.

I will say that is a steep price for a figure that might hit 7" inches tall. I will be forced to wait on a price drop from online retailers OR an American release. The Soundwa... I mean MP - 13, is finally revealed just a short while after Fanstoys is terminated.... interesting.

Fantoys isn't putting theirs out any more and I thought the same thing. Fantoys was gonna release an mp soundwave and hasbro and Takara are tired of 3rd party so the put one out to crush the competition.

You know, with MP-12's scale, a MP Menasor doesn't sound impossible at all, since it's 4 cars and a truck. :KREMZEEK:

Hello Soundwave?



Not sure how you thought MP-13 to be soundwave, because that totally looks like another Lambor mold. :-?


I'm with you. It looks like a shot taken from a different angle to me. Nothing about it says Soundwave to me. I am intrigued by the new direction Masterpiece is going.


Comparing the MP13 silhouette with 3rd party SW, I can say that is Soundwave.

Sideswipes chest should fold at the sides a bit the chest looks too square and flat it looks out of place compared to the rest of his body.

A better version of the MP-12 Lambor image has surfaced on ACToys! This version is clearer and shows the figure from the back and in vehicle mode. The MP-13 teaser is present as well. Check it out below.

So awesome with that countach alt mode... mmmm

It's not bad comparison the only thing that throws me off is the shoulder cannon .

That image settles it. He's definitely at least Voyager-sized.

I thought Lamborghini didn't want their cars being war toys? Guessing this will make it impossible for Hasbro to bring it to the states.

Also, notice the apparent size comparison with MP-10. Looks like the MP line is getting down scaled.

Im not bothered by the scale issue. I'd be quite happy for all the MP line to be as tall as MP01 Prime.

I know that being smaller it will be cheaper but I like the idea of MP figures towering over pretty much every other figure from every other line.

So long as its as good as it can be ( preferably with die cast parts, mmmm shiny ) I'll be happy though.

Self wants the chest to be a bit less sharp lined.

Needs to be able to angle more. Those hard sharp corners are a turn off in bot mode.

Lamborghini is owned by Audi AG, which is 99.7% owned by Volkswagen AG, so it is a bit strange...unless there are enough differences to get around that.

No, it's not. For the 84th time, MP bot modes are gonna be in scale. Sideswipe is a short character, thus he's a short MP. Bigger characters will get bigger MPs, smaller characters will get smaller MPs.

:HEADHURTS: I'm trying not to get angry, but it's tough when the situation needs to be repeated like that.

So wait, MP-Sideswipe is basically going to be Alternator-sized? That actually makes me way more interested in the figure. Sideswipe just didn't seem like a momentous enough character to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the other MPs, but at this size, it seems kind of awesome.

But $159 for a figure that size seems pretty insane.

I'd say alternator is about right, if not a little bit bigger even. Although the pic below might be of the older MP optimus that was slightly larger:

Sideswipe will be about Alternity/ Deluxe sized.

Alternators were closer to Voyager size, while Alternity figures were roughly Deluxes. The size comparison pic in this latest scan definitely has MP Lambor standing at Voyager height.
