These ain't your parents' Transformers galleries, kids. Seibertron.com is extremely pround to present two new galleries, and the focus in on the 12th installment in the Takara Tomy Masterpiece line: take in the beauty of MP-12 Lambor (Sideswipe) and its incredibly angry, spiky, 90s repaint - MP-12G G-2 Lambor. While both figures use the same mold, MP-12 G1 Sideswipe comes with his signature shoulder cannon, gun and piledrivers, while the G2 version includes an all new headsculpt, guns, sword, shoulder spiked wheels and sticker set - and they transform into the officially licensed Lamborghini Countach model! Click on any of the images below for the full galleries.

Look, Takara, you do Masterpieces very well, but that face on G2 Lambor cannot stay.

That face is what does it for me. It's priceless!

I bought an extra Tigertrack to solve a problem with my original one and I've got an extra G2 Lambor. I might do a face swap so that everyone can see what he looks like that way (plus use the G1 Autobot logos instead).

I'll post pics when my extra Tigertrack arrives!

What bugs me is that this is a Japanese release. When the reference behind it is an American comic thing they just wouldn't get that much over there.

And yet the odds of this ever being released here are just about zero. If not because of Hasbro not wanting to go through all the paperwork, then because they just don't give a crap about this somewhat obscure reference.

I'm really on the edge of buying this, but I've never payed import costs on an MP before and I'm really hesitant to do it. :-x

"But look at that grimace and the stupidly large warhammer-esque gun!" - My inner G2 kid.

That's the whole point of this figure. G2 Sideswipe looked that crazy in the comic, and this is as crazily accurate as you can get to that source material. The face is iconic, for this release.

Well yeah. I say "import costs" but you know what I mean. On every MP I've waited for a US release because it ends up saving me more or less around 50% of what Asian releases cost. Which is why I'm even considering it, because I'm pretty confident a US release isn't going to happen (at least of the G2 version here). The only small chance is if they already have to work a deal out to get BB released they might release the Lamborghini mold here in the states.

I'm just having an inner conflict over whether or not it's "worth it". #-o

Nice photos as always! As I was going through them I was thinking "he should throw YOTH Optimus in here".....I'm loving him in hand. Is it me, or could 12G be blacker, like he seems to appear in the box art?

Continuing in the intent to visually document as many Transformers figures as professionally and beautifully as possible, Seibertron.com is proud to offer another Masterpiece gallery! Click on any of the images below for the full works, showing Takara Tomy MP-19 Smokescreen in its gorgeously blue, red and white officially licensed Nissan Datsun/Fairlady Z altmode, and shoulder cannons, gun and yellow head crest in robot mode.

Heading for a quiet weekend of relax, or just have some time to kill? Check out Seibertron.com's latest Masterpiece figure gallery: Takara Tomy MP-14 Red Alert! Sharing the same mold as MP-12 Lambor (Sideswipe), MP-12G G-2 Lambor and MP-12T Tigertrack, Red Alert sports the appropriate white and red deco, shoulder cannon, gun, a slightly new head mold and includes blue plastic spark attachments for the head's antennas, to recreate scenes from the G1 episode Auto Berserk - as well as transforming into the officially licensed Lamborghini Countach model. As usual, click on any of the images below for the full gallery!

Great idea to swap heads. BTW, on the front page banner it randomly changes from the normal shot of MP Red Alert, to a red shot of him going berzerk. Is this on purpose or has Seibertron.com finally become sentient?

We recently uploaded a whole bunch of Soundwave galleries from Transformers: Animated and Generations, but are you ready for the main dish? Take a look below at the official Seibertron.com galleries for the Hasbro release of the Transformers Masterpiece MP-02 Soundwave, featuring a yellow visor (as opposed to the Takara red version), a boombox alternate mode and including a Megatron gun and energon chest cube accessory, and all the cassette minions friends: Laserbeak, Rumble, Ravage, Frenzy and Buzzsaw. As usual, click on any of the images for the full gallery.

The Hasbro version of Masterpiece Soundwave looks to kind and cuddly. /:) However, the Takara Soundwave looks evil and menacing. :-x :DEVIL:

Opening this Soundwave last summer was right up there with seeing TF:TM in 1986, that week Toonami debuted the last 5 eps of Beast wars S2, finally getting to read Target: 2006 when Titan released the trade, getting Armada Unicron, and swapping in that clip from Rescue Force Killbison to complete my LioKaiser; it actually put me in a state of Trans-euphoria. I couldn't think rationally for a week afterward.

That probably screwed up my grad school work, now that I think about it.

Still worth it though.
