Note: information is subject to change as these are preliminary listings. MP-13 Soundwave - 2nd Run Confirmed - Preorders UP!
Great news that Takara Tomy has officially announced the 2nd run of MP-13 Soundwave! This is a confirmed run and with the drop in the yen price the 2nd run is even more affordable than the original! Additionally this is causing some 2ndary suppliers to sell their stock of the 1st run and TFsource hopes to have enough stock soon to fill the outstanding preorders on the first run, from the Takara shortage on our first shipment! Preorder yours at TFSource here:MP-13 - Masterpiece Soundwave - 2nd Production RunMP-19 Updated Photos!
We now have updated photos of MP-19 Smokescreen. Additionally this figure is now delayed until a December release, so keep this in mind if you are preordering with Bluestreak and Prowl, and if you don't want a delay we recommend using our order stacking feature to manage your orders!preorder yours at TFSource here:MP-19 - Masterpiece Smokescreen Now up for preorder - MP-17 Prowl and MP-18 Bluestreak!
Takara Tomy announced that MP-19 smokescreen will be significantly different in design from prowl & bluestreak. Our guess is this will push the release date back further, but no official announcement on this yet.MP-17 - Masterpiece ProwlMP-18 - Masterpiece Bluestreak

Takara has recalled all Jinbu jet pieces due to a hip swap issue. We heard it's a pretty minor thing, and our apologies for the delay in preorders, but we would prefer to ship our customers the non-defective toys and we'll have our stock in later this month.
