Not long after its reveal at Tokyo Toy Show 2017 alongside his new-mold brother Sunstreaker, the cartoon-accurate Masterpiece Sideswipe has gone up for pre-order on Anime Export! Fellow board member Demonology7789 informed us of this pre-order which is actually a rather good deal; while MP-12+ Lambor's usual price is 8500 Yen, he is 5950 Yen here - in other words, around $54. Click on the image below if you want to jump on this inexpensive Masterpiece and tell us if you did in the Energon Pub!

What a stupid, pointless release from Takara.

I think this is good news for fans that missed out on MP-12 the first time.

I still think it's a great mold, but don't understand why Takara didn't redo his face now. It can't be that expensive? He was handsomer in the cartoon. Maybe if they had at least shaved the soul patch.

I just realized that with the black around his feet instead of the red, it means the back of the lambo will just be straight black. It wont be a great looking car mode from the back.

I thought the same thing.

I think it's unnecessary, but he does look slightly better (in bot mode anyways). The important thing to take away from this is that the MP+ line is continuing so we might see a anime accurate Wheeljack someday... :-?

Like I said before, this just makes me realize how much we need an updated Sideswipe figure. I bet the chest wouldn't be that hard to modify to shrink down a bit.

I can see where they are coming from with this reissue. As Sunstreaker and Sideswipe are brothers in the cartoon, they probably wanted this "new" Sideswipe to come out at about the same time as Sunstreaker as to improve the selling of it.

Yeah, the same thing happened with the previous MP+ release - Red Alert was close with Inferno, hence MP+ Red Alert when Inferno was released.

They retool faces for the Legends line why not for the even more luxurious MP line? :))

Make up your mind please! :lol: I have a hotline to Takara and will get them to work on your whimsical desire to fabricate a new mastermold to allow for the option to partsform Lambor's chest for "silly" cartoon proportions. 8-}

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath, we have some new stock photos from Takara of their upcoming minor cartoon-accurate redeco of MP-12 Lambor - otherwise known as Sideswipe. Check out the four images of MP-12+ below; showing off a few poses, his vehicle mode and standing with his bro and tell us what you think in the forums!

Already have the Original MP-12, so I will pass. I will be picking up Masterpiece Sunstreaker to put on the shelf next to him though.
