If you are itching to know what comes between MP-22 Ultra Magnus and MP-24 Star Saber, Taghobby has the answer in a newly revealed Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust. Being a Decepticon, Exhaust is a redeco of the upcoming MP-20 Wheeljack with a new head. The figure also seems to come two new shoulder rocket launchers and the Wheeljack Instant Immobilizer. The deco is based on a Diaclone retool of the toy that would one day become Wheeljack. It has also come to be known as Marlboor Wheeljack by most fans.

Paint app on the car mode is great (missing the most important brand on there for obvious reason). The colors just don't look good on robot's mode. Head's proportion is a little off IMO.

Was wondering who MP-23 would be with Ultra Magnus being MP-22 and Star Saber now confirmed to be MP-24.

"EXHAUST" is a hilarious name for Marlboro wheeljack. Absolutely awesome. Can't believe they are doing this and that it is not an exclusive.

Hm, why is this getting a new number? Sunstorm and Tigertrack didn't. I hope it doesn't mean that the MP line will lose its way after Magnus. :-?

I can't believe it, even the new head is correct. But WHY put any Decepticon logos on this? They should have placed the decals exactly like the original, while leaving open spaces for customizers to place the Marlboro wording.

It's a reference to the lampooned cigarette sponsor on the original.
Smoking is bad, hence decepticon.

Not to mention, the name exhaust evokes the idea of choking dark smoke.

REALLY nice retooling of MP Wheeljack. I'm also glad to see that a Decepticon is getting the MP treatment. I think we need more Decepticons for this line. Bravo, Takara, bravo. :APPLAUSE:

My guess is the differing faction was enough to make him get his own number instead of being a mere special version of MP-20.

I don't know if I'll bite on this one yet, but the more variants/retooled MPs that Takara sells means more money for them to seek out car company licenses for new MPs. Come on Porsche!

Maybe this cigarette-themed MP means Takara won't be averse to giving us an MP Mirage? He's covered in cigarette company logos too.

That thing is...fugly.

I don't begrudge squeezing a second MP toy out of the mold. In their position, I would do the same. However, Exhaust has officially displaced Tigertrack in last place on my Masterpiece priority list. Yikes.

Bluestreak and Smokescreen (and Red Alert) are characters from the cartoon though. This Evil Wheeljack is like Tigertrack and Sunstorm.

Don't get me wrong, I don't care about the numbering, and I'm all for esoteric repaints if it means that we get new molds for the "real" characters.

It's just that Takara was consistent and strict with the new incarnation of the MP line, I hope this piece of news isn't a sign that they ran out of steam.

Hence why I'm guessing that the new faction is what did it. Though Tigertrack and Sunstorm are their own characters, their having the same allegiances as Lambor and Starscream could have the less informed thinking that they're just "special" versions of Lambor and Starscream, respectively, like how Lambor G-2 Ver. is a special version of Lambor and how Silverstreak is a special version of Streak.

With Exhaust not only being his own character but one of the opposite faction as Wheeljack, they might have wanted to further differentiate him from Wheeljack than they did for Tigertrack and Sunstorm with Lambor and Starscream, and could have felt that giving him his own ID number instead of a modified version of Wheeljack's would be a good way to spell out his individuality.

What about MP10b Nemesis Prime? He's also his own character and a Decepticon, but still sold as a special version of Prime.

This looks pretty good, but yeah, one of the 3rd party sticker companies is going to make a killing.
