Following the trend of cartoon-accurate MP-XX+ releases of Masterpiece figures, we also have the reveal of MP-20+ Wheeljack coming out of Wonder Festival in Japan, coming to us via @Chohenken on Twitter!

As expected, it sports a more cartoon-accurate (and hence much more conservative) deco compared to the old MP-20, featuring a few splashes of red and green as opposed to the larger and more intricate designs on his older self. It seems that both silver and smokey clear have been subbed out in favor of a light gray for his missile launcher, face and "wings" as well. The panels on his hands also sport a far different deco of black with orange tail-lights, rather than white with red.

Finally and perhaps most noticeably, he carries a large, bulbous object with a spike on the top. This is obviously some invention of his or another from the Generation 1 cartoon, though it's not immediately apparent which one. If you recognize it, share it with your fellow board members in the Energon Pub Forums! Share any other thoughts you may have about this new deco there, as well. And as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news, including more from WonFes (like Masterpiece Hound, check it out)!!

Impressive, but I'd really like to see the vehicle mode deco.

Had do some quick research, but I think that device is the Wheeljack Instant Immobilizer from the G1 episode “The Immobilizer”

I knew this was coming sooner or later. Since I have the previous release, I will skip this one.

Ohhhhh, it's my boy. :x :-D

I'm very tempted, but I'm perfectly happy with the real life car-accurate version, which is what I really care about with MPs anyway.

Hmph, it's yours and WreckerJack's fault that he can't be my boy too. We can't have three News Crew members who all idolize Wheeljack; it simply isn't right Image

I was here before EITHER of you. You can't have him. [-( ;)
Hey, I have G1 Jack, Wrecker has Prime, you could have...uh...Armada? Cyberverse? :-? We could have a holy trinity. The Knights of Wheel.

unnecessary in my opinion, but great for those who've been wishing for this.

Red Alert still needs an "MP++" treatment. :))

Nah, it's just not worth it if I can't be *special*. You guys enjoy your Wheeljacks, I'll stick to Vector Prime :D

(For the record though: Animated Wheeljack.)

I'm kinda disappointed that these + releases don't come with a super goofy sunbow faction symbol to complete the cartoon look.

Its a blessing in disguise, trust me. Did you ever see those symbols applied to a figure? They dont work in a 3d environment.

And in any case you can buy them for cheap online if you really want em.

Also originally from Amazon Japan, and found via the Facebook group and page for TFND, we have new stock images for the recently revealed - at Wonderfest 2018 - anime / cartoon series accurate deco version of the Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-20+ Wheeljack, including the Anti-Hypnosis accessory included in the set, and some comparisons to previous figures released in the line.

There are more images of the robot mode in this new deco, though some vehicle shots are also included, and the Lancia and sponsor deco have disappeared (though not the number). Check them out below, and share your thoughts about this new version in the comments!

I'm not a huge fan of this "plus" redeco: I don't like the disappearance of the "Lancia" writing at all.

While it certainly didn't appear in the original cartoon, it's a matter of over simplification: I don't mind my Masterpieces having a little more detail than the average figure, given their cost.
