Seibertron.com member Trikeboy has reported finding packaging variants for Takara Tomy's recently released Masterpiece figures MP-12 Lambor and MP-13 Red Alert. Unlike their previous Masterpiece figures these two came packaged in vehicle mode, however Trikeboy recently purchased the pair from a Korean retailer and to his surprise they came packaged in robot mode! Additionally, Red Alert's light bar comes packaged as a separate accessory due to the alternate packaging. No other differences are reported. Take a look at his images below.

Would you be able to tell us which retailer?

If this means this was a separate run with a better or more even paint job for Sideswipe, I'm all over it.

Is it possible these could be a really good knock off? Why would they bother producing packaging variants like that otherwise?

Red Alert was purchased from Asem Hobby in Yongsan. There was only one left when I went. There is another branch which I will be checking out. He was more expensive than Sideswipe for some reason. Here is the product page on their website: http://thehobbyshop.co.kr/product/product_detail.asp?product_number=21395. They do have Sideswipe listed too but he wasnt in stock and is more expensive than what I paid for elsewhere. In that store I have previously picked up MP09, MP10 and United figures.

Sideswipe was purchased from Toy Outlet in I Park Mall, Yongsan. They recently had a huge intake of Transformers. I got Kreon combiners there and Prime Legends. They also got in Alternity Galvatron and Banzaitron, FOC G2 Bruticus, Prime Orion Pax and Thundercracker and that Movie 1 Leader class pack of Megatron and Optimus Prime. The paint job is the original for Megatron before you get excited. http://blog.naver.com/PostList.nhn?blogId=toy_ipark&categoryNo=0&from=postList

Korea has a bad reputation for knock offs and I have seen enough to know that is true. If these are knock offs, they are very VERY good knock offs. I don't believe they are.

I pm'd you as well!
I'd be all over this, I've been searching all over, dying to get my hands on MP-12!
Thanks so much for the generous offer, sir, I've been kicking myself for missing the boat on him.
