Well that didn't take long! Just yesterday we reported that Amazon Japan purchases of Takara Tomy's upcoming Transformers Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack would come with an exclusive Anti-hypnosis Device accessory, we now have an image courtesy of the Planet Iacon Facebook page.

For those unfamiliar with this device it was one Wheeljack's many inventions from Sunbow's original Transformers G1 cartoon. This device in particular appeared in the "The Ultimate Doom Part 3" where it was used to counter the effects of Doctor Arkeville's hypno-chips.

Check it out below!

That accessory looks cool. It really gives Wheeljack a going to fix the ship after a Decepticon attack feeling.

And I'm happy that I just got my two preorders in at hlj, like a boss. :D 8)

If you have to declare that you're going to disappear into the night like a phantom, I don't think you've accomplished what you've set out to do (that is, disappearing into the night like a phantom)... :-?


It was an attempt at referencing a show I just recently got back into. And yes that's the joke behind that line XD


Oh yea, pre-ordered this babe just now over hlj, I can still get that little part later, just like all the other amazon extras.

There are the essential accessories like: the characters' signature guns, shoulder weapons and Prime's trailer.

There are the "must-have" accessories like: the "Megatron" gun, the energy axe, the pile drivers and Red's sensory sparks.

I don't think this device is either. But I appreciate those kind of references though!

I found this chart if it helps: http://www.anime-export.com/page/faq#qq60
And checked their Smokescreen page for a weight reference.
It says: Packed Weight: 610 grams (1.34 Pound) • Weight: 270 grams (0.59 Pound). (And thanks Mooncake!)

Those anime export prices aint bad!

I normally end up ordering a bundle (I've got G2 Sideswipe, Jackie, and Bee on one order) of MPs from RK, since they throw in the coin and the Amazon jp exclusives.

its stupid to put this thingy as an exclusive, since it was seen only once. that lunchbox is just a piece of plastic...

keep hoping. we got a green/gray, blue, white and black versions of doc arkeville, and a lime-green pilot for acidstorm.
we got nothing with the cars.

I would love to have chip, but it would be to good to be true.

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:

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.
