Man posting anything that is slightly important from your phone is a huge pain in the ass. Ha ha ha.

These suckers look amazing. I am so pumped for Bluestreak, he looks perfect.

What the...!

Does Bluestreak actually have a slightly different head, to match his animation model?!? I can't tell 'cause it's a bit blurry, but the additional shoulder launchers make it seem possible...unless Prowl actually has them too and they're just not deployed.

So far, so good! Just wish they were still coming out a bit slower so my wallet could keep up.

Beautiful! They look just like their G1 box art paintings. These are the toys we imagined we were playing with when we were kids.

Awesome detail. They even have those wacky Japanese side view mirrors at the front of the hood.

Masterpieces indeed. Wow. Keep it up Takara Tomy and Hasbro. You've been knocking it out of the park with the current Masterpiece line. Looking forward to seeing what Hasbro's going to do with all of these Masterpieces on U.S. shelves at some point. Almost seems like a full blown line will be released instead of just the occasional figure here or there.

:APPLAUSE: Fantastic.

I'm kind of hoping that you can place a missile in those rocket launchers to make them bigger (they seem quite short), but other than that these are brilliant.
Well done Takara. :APPLAUSE:

I'm glad to see they resemble the cartoon aesthetics. I'm in but am a bit cautious. Takara tommy burned me with the Hasbro release of MP Sounwave. Makes me think of waiting for as western release. :D

Someone mentioned that they seem to have different head sculpts, which wouldn't surprise me. The Alternator "Z triplets" (okay, granted Prowl was a different car) ones all did, and that line paid similar attention to detail. I don't see the MP line not having slight differences since Red Alert and Sideswipe did.

They also have different "crotch" plates, to match the cartoon. So I'd say unique heads are a pretty good bet. Why'd they not supply better images?

Your right about that they look really good, I might have to part with my entire Alternators collection to make room.

From these first pictures, the one thing I really like is that they don't have the hollow legs like the first series of Masterpiece cars.

^QFT! They actually look a little better than I expected! As someone mentioned already, I'm loving the solid looking legs. These look like great figures. If they're as good as Sideswipe is, then we're in for a real treat! I only have Prowl on preorder right now, but that may change!

Holy crap they look amazing!!!


I wonder how tall they stack up to MP Sideswipe. I know they are the same in the scale chart, but I hope they are a little taller.

I usually never find a reason to buy a redeco. I finally have one. All three Datsun brothers would look amazing on my shelf. I didn't even collect the seekers, just 'Screamer.

If these come to the US for a manageable price, I'm all over them like white on rice.
