Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has found some cool images for us coming from Loopaza who uplaoded scans of a Japanese hobby magazine. In it we can find a size comparison of Transformers Masterpiece MP-35 Grapple
with MP-10 Optimus Prime & MP-20 Wheeljack. He looks to be about the height of Ironhide. We also see shots of all his faces and magical back shots of both him and Inferno.

We also see something really cool. It's as if Takara has been reading our boards and noticing how much we like to disect these toys and how much new tooling there is. So they pulled down the veil and showed us how the burgers are made with a three dimensional mapping of all the parts shared between the two toys. Enjoy!

Ugggggggghhhh why do I want this guy so much!! He was so dang likable in "The Master Builders". Curse you TFG1S2!! You aren't supposed to be in my display!! :lol: :lol:

He also looks really fun. Maybe it's the happy face. Like how I have Ratchet displayed with his happy face...dang it.

The retooling and the way it's presented in the magazine is impressive. It makes Red Alert Plus a little more disappointing.

Looking forward to transforming these!

Itscramtastic, your display discriminates against S2 characters?? :shock:

Short answer, yes. I have no real attachment to G1 Season 2, and not many toys from that season either! Two many episodes maybe?! :lol: I really pick and choose what I watch from that season..

THAT SAID!!

One of my fav episodes was The Master Builders, but I'd still never buy Hoist :lol: The only Grapferno figure I've ever had was Solar Storm Grappel (misspelled on purpose like the box!) from the Reveal the Shield line. He made his way to Cobotron when I first started selling off figures. I wouldn't mind this guy as his replacement (but I'd rather have Hauler)!!

Too many episodes?? More like not enough! S2 was the most iconic! :BOWDOWN:

You'd rather have a "made-up" character over someone who appeared on the show? Just when you think you know a guy. [-( :-P

The Master Builders is amazing.


Hey Takara, you were brilliant folding the ladder and crane into their backs, maybe you can come up with a magic solution to my limited shelf space? ;)^ Not that I'm complaining!

Too many in only that I can't focus on what ones I want to like :lol:

Hauler was there man!! Cliffjumper didn't yell at him to pull Hound up if he was made up!! Where'd he go after that though?! The same place Ratchet's medical platform went, right into an MP release 32 years later!! :lol:

Can you imagine if Takara release display stuff with collectors in mind?! I'd have no money ever again.

Back to Grapple..if I get one of the two it's him. I may start allocating funds!!

He's so happy! His face made me think of Nick, Invader ZIM's experiment! Look him up in the episode ZIM eats waffles.

It also shows us that Grapple's head comes up to Convoy's chest-windows, and combined with his... thing his head is in, almost the same size. Maybe someone could do a size comparison pic of MP-10 and the UW Constructicons so we could get a decent idea of how Grapple will scale with them?

Ooh, that's just a head shorter! Very nice!

It'll be pretty funny when Hauler comes around though. Guess they kicked him out the Constructicons for being too tall :lol:

Wait, there is something I dont get. Is it new that Transforemrs Asia handles the MP releases? Because I thought it was Hasbro Asia who handled them and they wre the ones providing the coin and such (and distributing them in australia).

Takara distributes in Japan, Hasbro Asia in the rest of the Asian market, with links to Australia too. In addition to the regular Takara accessories, they usually have the coin, and recently some other stuff too. :)

But if you look at the official pics again, you will notice that they arent from HAsbro asia but from Transformers Asia instead who is a 3p licencee (like funpub) who reissues previously used molds like Shattered Glass Optimus, Ultimate Movie Prime and now (it seems) the MP toys.
