Wow, this thing must transform itself or something.

Adjustments needed for sure.


Hopefully they'll fix the price. If it were me, I'd fix the price to... $80-$90, maybe? :-?

That is rediculous only a pure idiot would pay that much looks like I won't be having this mp. Seriously I just don't understand how they think they can charge the same price as mp-11 but half the size. It better be a remote control car to or Takara is smoking crack

Out of curiosity I wondered what would happen if I traced the outlines and tried to guess where the angles for the lines could be, this is probably just wishful thinking though

Now THAT is shocking. I'm definitely sure it's Soundwave. Better be, so help me God.

Thanks for that Deruji! I tried and tried but couldn't help but see a different angle. This now has me excited

No problem.

Also what I just noticed, IF the figure is actually posed like that, then his launcher COULD be on the shoulder. That would explain the little bump by the side of the head.
Judging by how the feet are posed (one foot is a step forward I think), he seems to have some good articulation.

I think MP Sideswipe is a Deluxe size not a Voyager. And there appears to be a bit of kibble hanging from his back in robot mode. Is Takara using a new Lamborghini model? The hood looks very flat and angular. Doesn't appear to have much curve like the newest models.

And MP13 is Soundwave I feel

Someone here said he's the size of an Alternators figure, which were about Voyager sized.

It's fantastic to see Breakdown is still in the pipeline for definite. I imagine Knockout may be the second Arms Micron figure I'd prefer over RiD, again simply because of the paint. MP-12 is an excellent size compared to MP-10, but doubt I'll bite. I don't imagine myself getting an MP Soundwave either. That'll depend on whatever kind of cassette-bot support he gets.

They said he was gonna be the size of a bineltech or altinator so he can fit in primes trailer. And idk if I wanna get this guy right away because if hasbro releases him he's gonna be hella cheap. Look at mp 10 same thing and $150 cheaper

I really wish everyone would stop hoping for Sunstreaker to be a mere Sideswipe repaint. He deserves his own mold.

Can an Alternator fit in MP-10? I think MP-10 trailer is a bit too small. The Alternators fit into MP-01

MP-10 trailer can only fit Alternity/deluxe, guys. Alternators/Binaltechs are totally out of the question. Lambor, if in scale, would just be an overpriced Alternity figure.

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

I'm mainly refering to the size, as well as anticipating possible simpler design choices for MP-12, considering the scale :)

Also, new pic (3D render), with clearer silhouette for MP-13.

I was gonna complain about the hood back, but then I remembered... it's cartoon accurate. :sad:

Edit: Also, looks like that silhouette is confirmed for a back view. IMO, it has to be Soundwave.

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.
