'jack's back! If he were a fictional human, I'd see him as a cool Professor Emmet Brown, always deep into his next inventions and looking cool at the same time.

I believe that was coloured from Hasui's illustration:

Yeah, Masterpiece doesn't tend to use non-Japanese artists' artwork.

Do you mean as accompanying artwork?

Because in G2 Lambor's case, they definitely used Derek Yaniger's designs for the headsculpt!

"Doesn't tend to" isn't the same as "doesn't ever". It just means that they don't make a habit of using artwork from non-Japanese sources. Lambor G-2 Ver. is a notable example of such rare instances in which they do. But all the main line releases seem to use Japanese artwork unique to those releases.

Precisely.

Do we know, other than MP01 and MP12G, what figures are based on non-Japanese art? :-?

Does it count if it's a redeco/retool of a previously existing figure? I suppose by throwing MP12G in there, I corner myself, yeah..

I'm now going to leave and think about recent figures based on recent artwork, and draw a conclusion about.. something.

I already made one: No US art, unless the figure in question is based on a Marvel Comics appearance. :-B

Well, most of them really. The original toys were Japanese, but these new toys are based mostly on the artwork from the American cartoon.

Plus, the instructions include screen caps from the American show.

The show's animation models were made by Shōhei Kohara (of Takara) and Floro Dery. And the animation was all done by Toei (in Japan), AKOM, and one other studio. So there is a heavy Japanese influence in the art design of the G1 cartoon, despite the cartoon being conceived in and made for America.

September 20th is the official release date of MP-20 Wheeljack, in Japan. As usual, some Asian releases will come with a collector coin, which we reported on here. This news update is all about new photos of the upcoming figure, since fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has provided us some updated photos he found, courtesy of the Amazon Japan listing.

The new photos, include his bio card and packaging in high resolution, among the obligatory figure shots. You can see the ordering page over at Amazon Japan by clicking here. It should be noted the Amazon Japan sales include an exclusive accessory.

According to Seibertron.com sponsor, TFSource, they should be receiving their shipment around a week after his Japanese release, so he'll be shipping to your homes sooner than you think. I know it's tough to wait, but we're in the home stretch now!
