2. Masterpiece Update! MP-12 - Masterpiece Sideswipe back instock next week!

MP-12 - Masterpiece Sideswipe back instock next week! We were finally able to secure additional stock of MP-12 Sideswipe and we are passing along the savings to our customers! Although we still had to pay a premium over the original cost, we have him up for preorder for the very affordable price of $109.99. Instock in a week or less, preorder yours while supplies last!

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:

Image
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.
