Looks like they enlarged his Autobot insignia to give the illusion of a smaller chest.

Insignia looks the same. Maybe larger.

This appears to use the face-sculpt from the Asian reissue. And maybe it's just the pic but it looks better in white? Less reflections on it.

They painted over the Lamborghini logos, seems unnecessary.

The ball joints are partly white to blend with the thighs.

The wheels are grey because in robot mode they turn light grey. And the rest was mentioned already.

Overall this doesn't look much different, if you don't have an MP-12 yet treat this as a kind of reissue.


There's a different face sculpt? Never knew

Not long after its reveal at Tokyo Toy Show 2017 alongside his new-mold brother Sunstreaker, the cartoon-accurate Masterpiece Sideswipe has gone up for pre-order on Anime Export! Fellow board member Demonology7789 informed us of this pre-order which is actually a rather good deal; while MP-12+ Lambor's usual price is 8500 Yen, he is 5950 Yen here - in other words, around $54. Click on the image below if you want to jump on this inexpensive Masterpiece and tell us if you did in the Energon Pub!

What a stupid, pointless release from Takara.
"Do you have the time - to listen to me whine?
About nothing and everything all at once!
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I just stoned?"

I think this is good news for fans that missed out on MP-12 the first time.

I still think it's a great mold, but don't understand why Takara didn't redo his face now. It can't be that expensive? He was handsomer in the cartoon. Maybe if they had at least shaved the soul patch.

I just realized that with the black around his feet instead of the red, it means the back of the lambo will just be straight black. It wont be a great looking car mode from the back.

I thought the same thing.

I think it's unnecessary, but he does look slightly better (in bot mode anyways). The important thing to take away from this is that the MP+ line is continuing so we might see a anime accurate Wheeljack someday... :-?

Like I said before, this just makes me realize how much we need an updated Sideswipe figure. I bet the chest wouldn't be that hard to modify to shrink down a bit.

I can see where they are coming from with this reissue. As Sunstreaker and Sideswipe are brothers in the cartoon, they probably wanted this "new" Sideswipe to come out at about the same time as Sunstreaker as to improve the selling of it.

Yeah, the same thing happened with the previous MP+ release - Red Alert was close with Inferno, hence MP+ Red Alert when Inferno was released.

They retool faces for the Legends line why not for the even more luxurious MP line? :))
