He stands an impressive nearly 2' tall! TFSource does not have a guaranteed delivery date so keep this in mind when preordering. Preorder yours at TFSource here:

2. Masterpiece Update! MP-12 Masterpiece Sideswipe Now Instock!

MP-12 Masterpiece Sideswipe Restock! Great news - we managed to find a reasonable price on some MP-12 Masterpiece Sideswipe restock! Although we had to pay more than original release cost, still well below the market price and we're passing along the savings! These will be instock later this week or Monday so shipping soon! Preorder yours at TFSource here:

Image
MP-12 - Masterpiece Sideswipe - Lambor

Our first shipment of MP-12T Tigertracks has arrived! We didnt' send out the email since it is roughly 2/3 of our preorder stock, the rest will arrive in the next 1-2 weeks, so be sure to log in to my source and see if yours is instock - you may be pleasantly surprised! Once we confirm additional stock we'll re-open preorders and email you directly!

Also good news that we may be able to get additional stock, so if you missed out sign up for the personal assistant here:

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 Run

MP-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:

Image
MP-19 - Masterpiece Smokescreen

Now up for preorder - MP-17 Prowl and MP-18 Bluestreak! Preorder here:

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.

Transformers Go! Product Delay. 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.

TFSource Sponsored reviewer Peaugh has also put up reviews of the latest Transformers Go figures, all of which you can watch on each product page. G-01 Kenzan (Police Car), Jinbu (Jet), and Ganou Samurai (Firetruck) are all up so enjoy the videos while takara makes the fixes!
