Smokescreen looks absolutely brilliant. Looks like Jazz has his upper arms and shoulders sorted out when he comes along too.

I didn't realize that the forehead crest was remolded differently for Prowl, Smokescreen and Bluestreak. Kudos to Takara Tomy for paying attention to that small detail. That's awesome! :KREMZEEK:

Not just the head, but the colouring too, at first glaqnce it looks like a Junkion that turns into a car. Pretty cool in that retro sort of way.

And yes a remold/ repaint of Prowl into this would be pretty cool.

It's not just the heads though- even the hips on each of them are different if you look closely.

Technically it's not an urban legend but the Diaclone version and I suspect someone will do it as an exclusive after Tigertrack was released.

*Tears her eyes away from the images of MP Smokescreen* Excuse me while I do a fan girl scream - Eeeeeee! I've got to add him to the collection! I've waited close to thirty years for this guy, ever since I had the original G1 Smokescreen as my first Transformer almost thirty years ago.
This is how I've always pictured him in my imagination and how I've always wished him to be made as!

He's gorgeous! He is a must buy, well for me he is, not sure about anyone else. Okay, fan girl moment done.

But he really does look amazing, the colours, the build, it all looks as close to perfect as you can ever get for a Transformer.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up for me perfectly :).

I never had him as a kid unfortunately (I gots him now though of course :P) but he was always my favorite Autobot car.

These two are barely 6 inches tall. Why are they starting to downsize the Masterpiece figures? They look cool and all but for the price they are going for I think I'll pass. >:oP

Cuz Prowl isn't the same height as Optimus in the cartoon. He's shorter, so he get's a shorter toy.

The new MPs are scaled to the official cartoon scale guide, so as to create a better sense of uniformity among the figures. It also lets Prowl fit inside Prime's trailer.

I felt that way initially, too, when my MP Sideswipe arrived. Now that I've had him for several months, it doesn't bother me anymore. He's still better than any previous version of him. I'm also really enjoying Prowl. I cannot wait for Bluestreak and Smokey to finally arrive!

If downsizing them means more MP Cars and Mini-Cars, that's a trade-off I can live with.

My first Bluestreak was a Christmas present back in '84 or '85. He was always one of my favorites. I just love how each of the Datsuns has a different head sculpt and other smaller details that distinguishes them.

And there's a mention of "MP-20".

ストリークの参戦により、MPになったアーク搭乗員は全部で四人となりました。アニメ序盤から登場する彼等が僕は大好きです。今後さらに搭乗員が増えるといいですね!MP-20以降のキャラクターにもぜひ注目ください#TT_TF

If I got that right, the last line says "Please pay attention to a character after MP-20."

The latest Transformers Masterpiece figure, MP-18 Bluestreak, has apparently seen release and blogger Alfes2010 has provided some pics via his Twitter feed. The figure is scheduled to be shipping from US e-tailers such as BBTS and TFSource by the beginning of November, if not sooner. 'Til then, this will have to tide you over.

Looks like there might be a little clip on the roof that it could possible be inserted into.

Streaker is looking great especially with that clear sun roof effect, a nice way to differetiate (word of the day!) him from his car brothers! ;)

Not just the faces, but their entire heads are different sculpts, too.

Yesterday I noticed that Prowl eyes are painted light blue, kind of like Hasbro's MP-10. I love that.

Those are quite possibly the best face sculpts I've seen on a TF recently. Wow, these just get better and better the more I see of them. Payday can't come soon enough.

The only minor issue that I have with Bluestreak's head sculpt is that his mouth is close. It would have been nice if he looked like he was talking. I mean he is called Bluestreak for a reason.

I was putting down and bashing this mp Bluestreak ever since I first saw the pics of him but after seeing these in hand photos of him and after receiving mp Prowl and seeing how good he turned out I'm now totally mind changed on Bluestreak. The silver and black looks very good. I just bought him after cancelling several preorders for him during the past couple of months. These mp cars look so so so good in hand. Takara, I give you a standing :APPLAUSE:

Tell me about it! hlj.com takes priority for all my MP purchases from now on. Also, that is $155 AUD, so in USD take another $5 - $10 off.

Shame, I have Wheeljack, Bumblebee and Ultra Magnus pre-ordered with BBTS just to guarantee I get them and when/if HLJ put them up I will just cancel the BBTS pre-orders.

TFsource was reacting to BBTS's announcements so they don't lose out on pre-orders. I don't believe Takara has officially announce wheeljack, bumblebee, or Ultra Magnus. That is my understanding anyway.
