Generally same price, unless somebody does a combo deal with the (unnanounced) exclusive toy.
In truth, you can probably get them cheaper on down the line.
I just enjoy having them in hand asap, often to my wallets' detriment.

Cool artwork! It has a very 1984-85 G1 Marvel feel to it. Are there any pics of the content?

These books are really great. I wish I could read Japanese, there's so much text with all the awesome imagery of both production product and concept art that I feel like I only get half the experience. Even then, the ones I've picked up have been well worth it. Need to backtrack and get some of the other years' books!

Yeah, it's like if the Marvel comics attempted to draw the art style of the cartoon. It's like a great blend between the two.

I guess you could try that mobile phone ap that allows the translation of documents or signs in real time... but if you can then save the results easily I have no idea.

I have yet to be able to find a website that does the same thing with uploaded photos unfortunately.

Scans from Generations 2015 Book: MP Hot Rod and Shockwave transformation, comic and UW Devastator

Postby william-james88 » Sat Nov 21, 2015 10:15 am

Motto: "'till All Are One"
The Million Publishing Generations 2015 Book is now out and while one of the cool features is that it contains an order sheet to mail order exclusive Japanese Transformers toys, it also has a lot of cool content all on its own. TFW2005 member Monari now has this book and took a bunch of pictures of it with his phone. Below you will see the behind the scenes process for Generations / Unite Warriors Devastator, such as sketches and early gray models along with final photos which fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath was kind enough to provide the images they were homaging (such as commercials and G1 box art).

Below you will also find a whole bunch of photos of the upcoming MP Hot Rod and Schockwave complete with their transformation and a comic featuring both of them (and a black Rodimus).

Enjoy!

These aren't Masterpieces. These are the G1 molds in the black decos that the molds have had before. Notice how they're drawn toy-accurately compared to how MP Hot Rodimus seen in this comic is drawn show-accurately.

Still not liking Hot Rod much. Something bugs me about his proportions and the overly flat chest.



Shockwave is one of the few 'Masterpiece' figures that has really interested me but still not sure about purchasing due to high expense and the usual quality control issues with these figures.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Ah ok. I had RotF Buster Prime and the chrome stayed perfectly intact all the time I had it (before selling cos bills). Either way this is a pretty cool figure.

The chrome would flake given the slack when you retract his leg parts.

This is not the Hot Rod we were looking for! Flat chest, huge backpack. Ugh. Nice face sculpt, but that's about the only thing that appeals to me about it.
