The news keeps on flowing right in from the Shizouka Hobby Show! Up next are yet another pair of highly anticipated Masterpiece figures, in the form of new toy accurate MP-29+ Bōei Sanbō (Defense Officer) Laserwave (Shockwave) and MP-36+ Megatron! These new figures come to us from an image provided by あると鉄火@AKG委託予定 on Twitter, which shows the 2 new repainted masterpiece figures advertised against a starry background.

While we do not have any actual figure images yet to show you, we can note immediately that Megatron now has a new toy inspired head, chest details, and red paint on the insides of his arms and legs. Also of note is that Laserwave is a much darker, anime accurate purple color this time around.

With this announcement, it appears as though a pattern is emerging: older Masterpiece figures designed to look like the toy are getting redone in cartoon styled paintwork whereas some of the newer cartoony Masterpiece figures are getting redone with toy accurate details and colorings. Interesting to see where this pattern goes from here.

Check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

And there is the Megatron I have wanted.

He will be pre-ordered. As Cobo-the-wise once said, Patience does pay off

You have learned well D-Max.

In the MP-42 Cordon thread Cobotron literally JUST wrote:AWE YEAH! :DANCE: :APPLAUSE: :DANCE: :KREMZEEK:

That is AWESOME!!!!! I knew my patience would pay off. It has really been working for me and what I'm after to just wait and simmer on Masterpiece figures. [strike]I've handled Sunstreaker and he is beautiful.[/strike] Glad I can have the mold more inline to my likings.

Is there an echo in here?

:lol: :lol: :lol:
PATIENCE WINS!!!!!!!!!
That Megatron looks DOPE! That was exactly what I was waiting for.
I knew I could rely on you takara. Thank you!

By some mirracle please cause the original MP-36 to go down in price ;)
Otherwise kinda digging that shockwave. I’d still prefer the lavender deco but this’d do in a pinch.

Toy accurate Megatron should quiet the "I hate cartoons" folk for at least a while.

It's kinda funny how we went from 0 to 4 new MP reveals in like an hour, even if we did know MP42 and MP43 were coming/had preorders for MP42. And they are seem to have killed it!

I need to listen to you more often Cobo, I really should!

It's also funny because this means some of us will be pre-ordering 2 very different Megatrons at the same time in the MP line :lol: :lol:

It was quite good. While the MPM line anoys me for taking slots from G1, I absolutely love these MP Beasties. I'm so hoping for rhinox and Waspinator.

I'd pick up that Shockwave right there instead of the last one. The darker purple just looks so much better. Hope it's a decent price though.

Makes no goddam sense. The original MP was so anime accurate, it even came with those toon srtickers

So, I just looked at some Shockwave pictures, and I can’t figure out where the lavender color scheme is from. It might be my colorbindness, though. Anyone know?

Also, I was thinking that I should pick up an MP Shockwave when they released him in a darker color. I’ll probably pick this one up.

I'm right there with you. While I love cartoon based Megatron's head, I really have a special place for the toy version of G1 Megatron. He has such a distinct and unique look ... I just love seeing it whether it's in artwork or as the toy. It's just damn cool.

Dark colored Shockwave is extremely welcomed.

I just want to clarify this. I don't think any of us "hate the cartoons" look. Those of us who aren't fans of the flat plain panels just want the level of detailing from the toys or manga applied to the general cartoon look. Big difference there.

Takara has had a long history with the ridiculous lavender color. While the color purple might come across occasionally as "lavender" in the cartoon from time to time, I don't think any of us actually perceive those lighter colors as being the actual colors of those figures. It's like the use of blue for comic book "accurate" black. I realized when I was reading the comics way back in the day that the colors in the book weren't accurate, just like "purple" Soundwave from the Marvel comics should have been blue. Just because Soundwave was purple in the comics doesn't mean I want a comic book "accurate" Soundwave. Please, Primus, no thank you. Takara has taken "cartoon" accuracy to an absurd level instead of a common sense level. Wish they'd snap out of it and would quit using lavender. There's no place for it. It's regular purple or dark purple, Takara.
