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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Its funny. The rubber tires thing. I've got G1 toys I've had since the 80s with no issues. Sweet, lovely tires. RID Prime, however - they're dead. All of them. Had issues with the couple of Alternators I had, too.

What is odd, is as I collect dolls - never any issues with them. Whatever they make dolls heads from - they should use that. Its much less elastic, but still has a slight rubber feel.

And is most likely a necessary compromise so the hands are covered in alt mode. If that and the 'thin' thighs are the only compromises, then there really isn't anything much to complain about considering the liberties taken by the G1 animators >:oP

But like the toy they should be at the bottom, or at at least they should not be angled and come to a sharp point. There is also this raised circle detailing on the hand guards that really take away from the g1 look.

I really like how they still sketch these designs out by hand rather than relying purely on CAD and CG. You can really see how the transformations are thought out.

Following up his earlier comparison tweet of MP-20 Wheeljack with MP-12 Sideswipe, MP-18 Bluestreak, and MP-Smokescreen, Takara Tomy designer Shogo Hasui has revealed the group in robot mode. However, MP-17 Prowl has replaced MP-Smokescreen for this shot. Check em out below!

man.. this is going to be way way WAY too long of a wait.

he looks almost perfect.. as usual.

i really hope we see teasers or prototypes of bumblebee and magnus soon.

i am surprised that he didn't flatten out prowl's feet.. they're very articulated and would've easily been able to sit flush on the ground.. not to mention i don't see his heal flipped out.. odd for someone who designed it to overlook that.
