After the initial stock photography shown in the story we covered yesterday here, we now have more official images for the newly revealed Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-42 Cordon - the police deco with retool of MP-39 Sunstreaker, as an homage to the latter's Diaclone predecessor - courtesy of Japanese hobby site Dengeki.

As you can see in the images below, we also have confirmation on some of the accessories, such as two chrome guns, with one being more of a gun/cannon arm attachment, changeable engine part display (in or out), the writing "Metropolitan Police Agency" displayed on the left and right doors in kanji, "CR 03" of the license plate as a Diaclone homage, and a quick comparison shot with other police themed Cybertronian MP-17+ Prowl (anime version). Check it out!

[quote]- 1 x MP-42 Cordon Figure
- 2 x Wing Attachments
- 2 x Guns
- 1 x Bio Card
- 1 x Instructions

Not really sure what the "wing attachments" are, they haven't been shown in any photos. Neither has a second gun. Those are things that Sunstreaker didn't come with so it could be a clue as to why the price is so high by comparison.

Meanwhile the AmiAmi parts list seems more accurate:

[quote]-Cordon x1
-Rifle (Speed trap gun) x1
-Spare side mirror (runner) x1
-Character card x1
-Instruction paper x1[/quote]
So I wonder which one is accurate? Seems like AmiAmi's since HLJ has the same list so where did TFS get their info from?

2 "Wing Attachments" = spare side-mirrors.

I have warmed to the head sculpt, in fact now I love it, so not too disappointed that it doesn't come with alternative faces. However, hoping this doesn't set the precedent for the new MP Megs - that needs to come with all the faces.

Was curious to see what "Cordon" would look like as MP-39+ Sunstreaker.

Missed opportunity to partner with Tyson's Chicken and create an MP Chicken Cordon Bleu.

What is marketing doing?!

Well well, looks like we got ourselves a new mystery regarding Cordon's identity as, according to this Tweet from TakaraTomy, his profile says that he used to have a different name in the past.

[quote]新キャラクター「コルドン」
謎に包まれたそのプロフィールの一部を公開いたします。
コルドンは元々 警察で用いられる「KEEP OUT」の文字でおなじみのテープ備品の事を指すが、その名前に込められた彼の過去とは一体・・・。

His function is also given as "Legendary Warrior", and according to another user's attempt at using his Google Translate app on the profile text itself, it says something about Cordon having been someone who was imprisoned for past sins and did community service.
