So awesome with that countach alt mode... mmmm
Would have helped if they allowed the back part to rotate 180 in robot mode.

Last but not least, the prototype photo of MP-12 Sideswipe has also make an appearance, with size comparison with MP-10 Convoy. Also the magazine is teasing the silhouette of MP-13 that will make an appearance at the upcoming 2012 Tokyo Toy Show.

Hello Soundwave?



Not sure how you thought MP-13 to be soundwave, because that totally looks like another Lambor mold. :-?


I'm with you. It looks like a shot taken from a different angle to me. Nothing about it says Soundwave to me. I am intrigued by the new direction Masterpiece is going.


Comparing the MP13 silhouette with 3rd party SW, I can say that is Soundwave.



(pictures was used for comparison only)


It's not bad comparison the only thing that throws me off is the shoulder cannon .

That image settles it. He's definitely at least Voyager-sized.

I thought Lamborghini didn't want their cars being war toys? Guessing this will make it impossible for Hasbro to bring it to the states.

Also, notice the apparent size comparison with MP-10. Looks like the MP line is getting down scaled.

Im not bothered by the scale issue. I'd be quite happy for all the MP line to be as tall as MP01 Prime.

I know that being smaller it will be cheaper but I like the idea of MP figures towering over pretty much every other figure from every other line.

So long as its as good as it can be ( preferably with die cast parts, mmmm shiny ) I'll be happy though.

That was Volkswagon.

Self wants the chest to be a bit less sharp lined.

Needs to be able to angle more. Those hard sharp corners are a turn off in bot mode.

I thought both those companies were taking that stance.

Lamborghini is owned by Audi AG, which is 99.7% owned by Volkswagen AG, so it is a bit strange...unless there are enough differences to get around that.

No, it's not. For the 84th time, MP bot modes are gonna be in scale. Sideswipe is a short character, thus he's a short MP. Bigger characters will get bigger MPs, smaller characters will get smaller MPs.

:HEADHURTS: I'm trying not to get angry, but it's tough when the situation needs to be repeated like that.

So wait, MP-Sideswipe is basically going to be Alternator-sized? That actually makes me way more interested in the figure. Sideswipe just didn't seem like a momentous enough character to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the other MPs, but at this size, it seems kind of awesome.

But $159 for a figure that size seems pretty insane.

Not Alternator sized, that scale is more Alternity sized.

I'd say alternator is about right, if not a little bit bigger even. Although the pic below might be of the older MP optimus that was slightly larger:

MP 10 is just a little bit bigger than MP Starscream



Sideswipe will be about Alternity/ Deluxe sized.

Alternators were closer to Voyager size, while Alternity figures were roughly Deluxes. The size comparison pic in this latest scan definitely has MP Lambor standing at Voyager height.

Compare:

That's definitely MP-10. Using Grimlock as a reference, yeah, so not Alternity sized, but kind of a short Alternator. Definitely not taller than an Alt though.

Damn it, too big for inclusion as a 'classics' figure, I was hoping for smaller.
