Transformers Masterpiece Skywarp MP11SW Thread

Postby Autobot032 » Fri Oct 24, 2014 6:21 am

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Transformers Asia has posted new webpages and images of upcoming releases, including reissues of Masterpiece Skywarp, using the MP-11 mold, as well as Barricade and Soundwave from the now defunct Human Alliance line.

We've mirrored the images below, but before you go and check them out, stop by our galleries to see these figures in stunning high resolution clarity.

Skywarp using the MP-03 mold, and Starscream using the MP-11 mold, to give you an idea of how Skywarp will look. As for the Human Alliance figures, here's Barricade and his partner in crime, Frenzy, followed by Soundwave and his partner, Laserbeak.

And now, the mirrored images:

Lucky me I didn't buy MP Skywarp yet, now I'll wait for this one! :grin: :grin: :grin:

And also HA Barricade is on my most wanted list (Soundwave is quite ugly).

Huh, interesting. Neither are reissues in the true sense of the word:

- Skywarp uses the retooled MP-11 mold, and has a designation to match: MP-11SW. So it's more akin to a specialised redeco.
- HA Barricade and HA Soundwave may not be reissues either, but redecos as well: the set is designated APS-03, as the third release of the "Asia Premium Series" that previously had Striker Optimus and Leader Brawl. (anybody remember those?)

Well played.

2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

So Skywarp is going to be an Asia release? Not for Japan? Want to make sure I can get it from the Japanese retailers and not the HK retailers... those guy charge too much for shipping.

i'd really like a skywarp along the lines of the new starscream, but no way is he worth 200 to me.

Asia Reissue Starscream was $200...

I would love it cheaper, and it may go on sale, but $200 doesn't seem entirely unreasonable.

Starscream has a cape! this thing has a rectangle! Actually if they just give us a plastic rectangle box.... I'm kind of okay with it. I need shelf raisers anyway

At first I thought those were :G2CON: symbols on Skywarp, but if I look at it at an angle, I can see that they are not. It's a shame that Takara didn't put that kind of twist on Skywarp like they do on their other figures.

Transformers Asia is owned by neither Hasbro nor Takara Tomy, they're an independent group that sources their exclusives from both companies. I guess their location puts them in a unique position to do so.

I couldn't bring myself to pay that much for Starscream, and he's one of my favourite characters.

Hoping for a Japanese re-release of Screamer, they are cheaper by 50% (¥10,400 / $96.)

Someone may already have pointed it out, but that Skywarp is NOT a re-issue. Not if he's using the MP-11 mold. It would be if they were still using the MP-03 mold for some random reason.

I'm pretty my HA Barricade is a KO. I bought it for only 15$ + ship brand new when the real one was going for 200$+. However, that KO is of such great quality, it's impossible to tell that it's a fake. So I'm good.

My HA Soundwave is a real one. Paid the full 60$ + ship at the time. Still no regrets because that mold is amazing. People, if you missed out, now's your chance.
