Courtesy of ACToys.net, we have images of the upcoming March release of Masterpiece MP-16 Frenzy and Buzzsaw. Frenzy reuses the Masterpiece Rumble mold from the MP-15 set, while Buzzsaw uses the Lazerbeak mold that accompanies MP-15 Soundwave. Check out both of the cassettes in the images below!

Looking good!
I'd prefer Frenzy's ball-joints to be less visible while wearing the piledrivers, but hopefully it is possible to turn the arms around. Also, the paint looks sloppy (especially on Frenzy's chest).

Hmmmmm...... $60, I don't know about this one. Looks cheap. :-?

Buzzsaw/Laserbeak's head still looks like a camera flips out of the forehead. Has anyone confirmed this?

I marvel at the lack of add-on bits for Laserbeak and Ravage.

These look pretty good to me price-quality wise, but then again, I have MP-16 (Frenzy and Buzzsaw) and MP-15 (Ravage and Rumble) pre-ordered at $34.81 each :grin:

This is the first MP release for which I'll await a Hasbro release.

For hiding those ball joints you'd turn the arms so the shoulders face forward and then hope the elbows can bend backwards as well as forwards. If that's not possible, you can always pop the arms of those ball joints and swap them.

Judging from the photo of Frenzy in tape-mode, the elbows cannot bend backward. And it looks like they have to be positioned in an upward position to slide on the pile-drivers, meaning the ball-joints will always point forward (which is also shown by the packaging photo). So, yeah, popping off the arms is the only way to possibly avond the ball-joints showing on the front: however, it will impede transformation, and he's going to look dumb with his arms back to front without the pile-drivers on them :-( . Oh, well... We're just going to have to manage. Anyone know if the pile-drivers are springloaded?

I love the Lazerbeak and Buzzsaw toy. Couldn't they have made Frenzy and Rumble's head a bit smaller like the art work? It looks so much better with the smaller head.

It's been known for a pretty long while. I remember when the news crew here at Seibertron posting test shots of Laserbeak with the deployed camera. More evidence is that there is a pin on the side of his head, but that could be for transforming him.

What is the scale on these guys next to the classics figures?

Really gotta see Laserbeak/Buzzsaw first hand to see how they managed to incorporate the mounted guns into the full transformation. That's crazy.

Even crazier is that price though. Definitely waiting for the Hasbro release, prices on these and Soundwave are just ridiculous.

These do look awesome, but yeah, at $60 for the two of them, we're kind of getting hosed.

What's up with the Paint job? it looks horrible. United figures have far better paint jobs. whats up with that?

It's Rumble dammit get it right !!! If they wanted to go the "toy accurate" route, then Buzzsaw should have come with Soundwave and Lazerbeak should have come with this guy. and yep, they did a crappy job with the silver paint apps going out of the lines. I think fatigue has finally set in to those poor Chinese factory workers that work 16 hours a day painting these things.

Im pretty sure all paint apps are hand painted. I dont think they have an assembly belt with robot arms that can be programmed to paint different apps on different figures. :lol:

Tampographs and paint masks aren't in your dictionary then? Even then, machines can mess up at times :lol:

And in Japan, Frenzy is blue, Rumble is red. Always has been, even in their dub. Period ;)
