Nice. A reissue would be even nicer.

Non-transforming? Darn, I had my hopes up when I first saw that picture.

Yeah, having had the original... my excitement went through the ROOF till I read "non transforming." What a BUMMER. :BANG_HEAD:

An actual transforming version does exist (and I do mean a modern day toy rather than the original), but there's been no word of it getting the same treatment here yet.

Something like that, I think, yes. Though, less red, more yellow, IIRC.

Look for Brave Gokin Mugen Calibur. He comes in two decos: yellow and tan with grey, and grey and tan which is the Miyazawa mokei version.

Don't, don't get that. I had a bit of a melt down a long while ago trying to find the perfect Roadbuster for my Classics, and checked on a lot of possibilities and they're all really, really bad.
Be it awkward design, bad articulation, crappy materials, way too expensive for what it is, or in the case of the one you mean all of it in one. Plus it's too big for Classics and too small for MP.

The best of the bunch is the non-transforming one here, best materials, best articulation, best design, and best accessories.
Really the worst thing about it is that it doesn't transform, but it looks like it could which is good enough for a robot-mode display.

No, you didn't miss anything. I'm just throwing in since it TToy event. Also because there was rumor of MP20 might be Mirage, Megatron v2, Galvatron, UM v2, etc.

On a somewhat related note, are there any big presentations during this event? Or is it a bunch of TFs on tables that no one seems to want to take pictures of?

The tweets are coming in from Takara Tomy's Transformers presentation at the Tokyo Toy Show, and the next Masterpiece figure has been revealed as MP-12G G2 Sideswipe! A black version of the MP-12 Lambor mold with brand new weapons. Images mirrored below from the twitter accounts of @GENgoraw and @ripetakobozu:

Those surely aren't the final colors, the weapons are just plain test-shot-grey. I'm not sure what the spikey bits are all about, but I dig the SMG and the... ENGINE GUN (Axelerators, yay). LOVE IT. Now, go get the colors right so you can SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY. :grin:

The List:

Ginrai, Victory Saber, Dai Atlas, Gorilla Convoy (Optimus Primal I guess), Lio Convoy, Big Convoy, Superfire Convoy, Micron Convoy, Grand Convoy, Galaxy Convoy


Sorry, don't know the US names well enough to place the exact toys

Damn, all are cool choices, but I would rather have more G1 characters.. And not... another prime.

Though, Star saber or Galaxy Convoy would be sweet.

I really can't decide. God Ginrai/Powermaster Prime would be epic as would Optimus Primal, Lio Convoy and Big Convoy.

May I have all 4 please? I'll pay top dollar :D!

edit: On second thought, cancel God Ginrai/Powermaster Prime. It's about time Takara popped their MP Beast Wars cherry. Bring on the beasts!

Possibly, unless he's not larger than the G1 figure. My guess is he'd be far smaller, but way more show accurate and articulated. No way they'd stick to scale on that one.

:lol: pretty much!

Now that I think about it, perhaps what they're really looking for is a possible alternate direction or way to branch out for the MP line, but they want to play it safe and see what the interest levels would be and what the most popular lines would be for them to go with. G1 is expensive since there are licensing issues galore. None of the other lines have that problem, so if they started doing any series other than season 1 of G1, no more royalties to car makers and thus higher profits.

I could get behind this idea, but I don't want them to abandon season 1 of G1 just yet.

On one hand, they are making more Autobot Primes/Matrix bearers from G1 (which is a great thing), but on the other hand, almost half of the list is nothing but Optimus figures. I would really hope they'll make a Fortress Maximus or the Star Saber (and hopefully, a Victory Leo) Masterpiece figure since they're two of the best Autobot leaders in G1.

Friggin' Primes...

I really hope MP-20 gets to be G1 Galvatron. They could do him in show colors first, then do MP-20M (or some other appropriate code) for the toy/Marvel-accurate Galvatron II. Maybe make him bluish-gray to reflect how he was rendered in the original comics.

Hell, the G1 figure is pretty close to MP scale to begin with. If I can take my beat-up old G1 Galvatron and figure out how it could be done all on my own, TakaraTomy's engineers really ought to be up to the task.

In short... MP-20 G1 Galvatron or GTFO, TakaraTomy!

I'd vote for Armada Optimus Prime and Galaxy Convoy. IMO, the former has a really nice design, and it'd be awesome to see high-end MP version of it. As for Galaxy Convoy, I missed out on the original, and a suped up MP version will be like a dream come true.

Too bad Vector Prime isn't on the list.

Is there any other events where they announce MP's or do you think there will be random announcements in the future sort of like MP Prowl and his repaints?

I'm certain there will be more MPs next year. I think this is just a tease/taste of things to come. It's possible that they plan on doing all of the MPs/lines listed, but are only choosing one which will be first in line for the 30th anniversary release.

Although a Victory Saber would be cool, I'd vote Primal. Hopefully it would be a foot in the door towards more BW Masterpieces. Despite how great toyline was let's face it, the show characters from the first season got screwed over. Hardly any of them were in scale, they had incorrect colors, and their designs were often inaccurate. I also hope Takara would do BW masterpieces on a smaller scale, they really don't have to be very large. Also, just a random idea. But Beast Wars is actually a great candidate for a masterpiece line. Considering how few characters were actually in the show, that could mean a complete Beast Wars masterpiece lineup

As far as I'm concerned, Beast Wars Telemocha Series TM-01 Convoy is already "Masterpiece Optimus Primal" enough, being show-accurate enough in size, color, and mold. 8)

Ugh.

G2 Sideswipe is somewhat ridiculous; I was happy to get Tigertrack, but announcing a 4th version of this mold very much gets on my nerves. How about Soundblaster + Ratbat? We do only have *one* Soundwave mold so far.

As for the fans' choice MP - WTF? :BANG_HEAD:

Do we really need another Optimus or Autobot leader? Whatever happened to *faithfully* assembling the 1984 lineup? How about creating a solid response to FanToys QuakeWave? Or a response to iGear's Weapons and Medical Specialists? Maybe make a v2 Megatron? Or, really, anything else we've been actually clamoring for? Voting in this limited show setting with only Japanese input seems to put the rest of the fandom out, doesn't it?

Sorry to be a debbie downer, but seriously... just Ugh.

man, every time i see MP prowl, bluestreak, and smokescreen together.. my heart skips a bit lol.. they're just so perfectly perfect.

prowl was my second favorite design back in G1.. and i think they captured him beautifully.

i really can't express how excited i am for these. i really think they knocked smokescreen out of the park.. from the front end, to the head, to the shoulder missiles.. it's like they just stuck their hands into the tv and pulled these guys out. it's awesome.

as far as the masterpiece poll goes..

i'm definitely not voting for fort max.. i really had no connection to him as a kid. also.. he's just too big. he's not going to fit in with any of the other masterpiece figures because they're definitely not going to keep him in scale. and if they did.. i, along with many others i'm sure, wouldn't be able to afford it. i mean, hell, hot toys is having trouble thinking of a way to release the bad from TDKR. (or maybe they've scrapped it, i'm not sure)

i would probably vote for lio convoy, big convoy, or rid prime. and, i know it's not a choice.. but i think an MP, screen accurate movie prime would be pretty neat.

i do wish this were more of an open poll. i'd like to see them tackle a combiner (devastator in particular) i think it'd be a nice response to the 5 recently released/upcoming autobots.

but other than combiners.. i'd actually like to see the coneheads.. i think they're a nice choice of beefing up the decepticon ranks. plus.. how awesome would all of the seekers look when displayed.

I am super interested in what ever that FJ Cruiser is doing up there.
Any ideas? Also, G2 Sideswipe looks awesome!

YES. A THOUSAND TIMES YES.

I might be one of the few people orgasmically excited for a G2 Masterpiece, but whatevs.

MP Beast Wars, Takara, NAOW!
And with that I mean the goddamn bossmonkey and his mates. This way we might finally get a decent Dinobot.
