More Images of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-11ND Dirge from Cybertron Con 2016

Postby william-james88 » Tue Aug 02, 2016 12:39 pm

We have some more pictures of Masterpiece MP 11ND Dirge which was revealed at Shaghai's Cybertron Con 2016. The toy will be distributed by TTMall in Japan and Hasbro Asia for outside of Japan (hence its inclusion at the show). We see a pretty awesome shot of all the three coneheads together.
For anyone keeping score, this is the 19th use of the Masterpiece Seeker mold, including all the different retools, redecos and releases in Japan and the US since 2006. These pictures were brought to us by TF fan UranusDD.

I don't understand these at all.

#1. Why is Dirge's missiles, forearms & head/nosecone GRAY??? They're supposed to be black.

#2. Why are the colors on Thrust's jet mode completely wrong? His wings aren't supposed to be gray & why did they put that black patch on it?

#3. Why haven't I seen anybody else mention these problems?

Thrust was always my favorite since G1 & that IS NOT Thrust! WTF? :???:

Actually, Thrust's colors were discussed in his thread here. (More of the coloring discussion above the post linked here.)

Masterpiece MP-11ND Dirge New Stock Images

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Thanks to Seibertronians Scottyp and Cyberpath we have new images of the upcoming Conehead Seeker Masterpiece, Dirge! Dirge is the last of the 3 Coneheads needed for collections, and while he maintains the retooling done for the sake of the Conehead's look, he does features some new tooling and weapons, along with a little clear plastic pilot that can sit in his cockpit. These images come to us courtesy of TakaraTomy Mall, which has his release date set as May of 2017.

Seibertronian Fourm Admin Burn also dropped in to let us know that Premium Collectables has their pre-order up as well, with a price of $115.98.

Take a look at the pictures below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below! And make sure to get your pre-order in for the final of the original 6 cartoon seekers!

It looks like the tail/rudder/wingtip uprights can fold flat against the wing in robot mode. I'm not sure why they aren't in the photo.

Dirge doesn't look bad at all in robot mode; He just needs the face swiping gimmick. In his jet mode, his wings have tiny Decepticon symbols, making him look awfully plain in his alt-mode.

I also noticed how dark Dirge's wings are in this photo. If the Masterpiece Dirge's wings were a little darker, then perhaps they would complement the rest of Dirge's body.

They come from both the original 1985 toy and the cartoon model. All three Coneheads had them.

I would have expected the 2nd season jets to have less "kibble" because the nosecone would actually be used for something in bot mode.. but it's even more prominent.

That huge nosecone sticking between the legs... it's not great.

I still don't have any of the MP-11 toys so I'm not completely familiar with the transformation yet -- why didn't they use the actual jet piece for the head?

But otherwise he looks pretty cool.

Probably because it would have made for a ginormous conehead. And if they'd shrunk it down to be more proportionate for the robot mode head, then the jet mode would have likely ended up with a humorously dinky nosecone that would have looked far too ridiculously small when compared to the rest of the realistic-looking jet body.

I will forever disagree. The classics toys did something simple but smart which the amsterpiece line could have ameliorated on:

And if it had to be a fake head they could have done a new mold to make a cleaner transformation that hides the nosecone. But no, instead they reused the same scheme from 10 years ago and just stick the nosecone in the back.

The nosecone of the Classics Seeker mold is built differently from the nosecone of the MP Seeker mold. The Classics Seeker mold built the robot mode head into the nosecone; the MP Seeker mold did not.
