I'm sorry but there was a g1 soundwave that was a working radio and cassette player not so sure about the cassette but I know it was a radio.


There never was one. You're thinking of Blaster, whose Microman predecessor, Radi-Casse Robo, had working electronics. The Radio itself was a small cassette.

No I'm pretty sure it was a soundwave I was reading an article about rare and rumored transformers and they had a picture of it next to a soundwave it was a little larger than g1 soundwave and the guy was talking about how when he was a kid him and his friends used to argue if it really existed and now he owns one. Matter of fact the article was either on this site or tformers because those are the only sites I really read about stuff but once in a while I read something somewhere else

Must be this guy.

In short, no incarnation of G1 Soundwave was a working player.

But that's not the point it's still a g1 product so it wouldnt be non g1 if they did add a gimmick like that. And I didn't know you were trying to say the exact g1 figure with a radio I know that doesn't exist circuit boards were huge back then lol. I like gimmicks well at least cool ones I mean how cool would it be listening to the radio at your deck from your mp soundwave. Radio components are so small these days it wouldn't hinder the transformation in any way.

if that Soundwave toy counts why isn't MP Prime also a bottle of bubble bath? Or a Walkie Talkie?

I really hope this masterpiece is not used for Sunstreaker. Don't get me wrong, it looks awesome but Sunstreaker did not look like Sideswipe to me in the cartoon. I could see this figure being used for Red Alert, however...
I am looking for a set of Botcon 2012 Junkions at a decent price...

I wonder how they're going to do Red Alert from Sideswipe's mold. If you noticed Red Alert's back, the rear window/spoiler section is up behind his head, instead of the windshield. Are they going to add a twister to the back area?

Sideswipe's spoiler is right behind his ankles. I doubt a mere twister mechanism would solve that problem.

Sorry, but Alternity figures aren't nearly as detailed or as G1 accurate.


Say what? Alternity figures are very detailed. It is amazing that amount of detail that go into such little figures. I agree they just have not been G1 accurate, so far, but that doesn't mean that couldn't change.

So through this picture it is suffice to say that MP-12 is not just Voyager-size...He also have a Voyager-class transformation -__-...Which means he's literally a Voyager class with a Masterpiece price....Wow...

And my god he's so fcking blocky O.O...He look worse than Deluxe Rodimus's blockiness...Well it's official, I wont be buying this crap unless if it's on sale for like 30~40 dollars.

Here I thought MP-03 is the worst MP...Well looks like MP-12 will be the new worst MP. Congratulations Takara. You manage to make a toy crappier than a toy you make 5++ years ago.

I do think that Lambor will be hard to place next to the more recent Materpiece figures, because, stylistically, he doesn't go. He is too blocky in relation to the Primes. But then, his vehicle mode is supposed to be a Countach which was one of the boxiest (but sexiest) cars of all time.

MP-12 Lambor? I'm in hog heaven. Bring it on. I'd like a US version though, $140+ is too steep. If the teaser is Soundwave, then bring that on too. Win/win. But what I really want is a US MP Thundercracker to go with warp & SS.
