Nice to see there's an online retailer that doesn't automatically rape your wallet on a new pre-order item.

Indeed that's the truth! That's why I haven't shopped with them for over a year. It's not their fault though I think HK post is just generally much more expensive than JP post and it went up. I put the same things in cart at Ehobbybase shop they pretty much charge the same rates.

Yup! But if you order a few MPs at a time (I've got Jackie, Bee, and G2 Sideswipe in one order), it still comes out to $10 less than US retail per MP, and you get the coins and Amazon.jp accessories. So I end up ordering from them very occasionally.

New pic from the designer:



MP-20ホイルジャックのビークルモード後部の画像です。変形方法が、いくらか見えてきましたかね? 写真では分かりづらいですが、手持ち銃であるハンドガンをエグゾーストパイプのように取り付けることができます。

This is a picture of the rear of the vehicle mode MP-20 Wheeljack. Deformation method, I guess we have seen some? It is hard to understand with the photograph, it can be installed as exhaust pipe a handgun is a hand-held gun.

Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath found an update from Hasui's Twitter, revealing how Masterpiece Wheeljack's weapon will stow away in vehicle mode. Unlike previous releases, Wheeljack's weapon integrates into his vehicle mode as seen below:

Masterpiece Wheeljack is listed as an August release, until then, pictures will have to keep us going.

So if Wheeljack is set to be released in August, when are Bumblebee and Ultra Magnus to be expected?

Well that's one thing this guy has done right! The only thing I don't like about Sideswipe and Prowl is the inability to store weapons. Except for Prowl's shoulder cannons, that's sweet.

I prefer the plastic really, no dry rot, cracking, or flat spots from sitting in one position for too long.

yeah i agree, in the long run i prefer plastic too for practical reasons as you mention. I think only a couple of grapple's tyres survived from my childhood days. Though for aesthetics, and a touch of realism + a feel you're getting more for your money, rubber would be my preference. If anyone comes up with durable rubber it would be better.

Same here. Having problems with my G1 figs already with rubber rot. Unless you regularly apply Armor All to it. Rubber feels and looks good for the "realistic" presentation but you get the rot as a consequence.

How frequently? Don't want my MP-10's tires rotting anytime soon. ;)
