Its cool and all, but if it cuts the price ten bucks I could do without it.

That is an interesting development, I'll give you that.
Along with Masterpiece being printed on the packaging. :-?

But not unheard of. There's three other non-MP coins: DOTM(?)Jetwing Prime, Encore Fort Max, and Encore Devastator.

hmm... you're right Japan did make coins, completely forgot about Fort Max, but was it an Amazon.jp thing? I ordered mine from BBTS and it did not come with one.

Who makes/releases them can be a crap-shoot, but its usually either an Amazon or Hasbro Asia thing.

And BBTS usually has speicific listing reflected with or without coin.

ummm, I ordered mine off amiami, it was already cheaper than any other retailer so if it doesn't come with the coin, I wont mind. But it would be a great surprise if it did.

You know, with the revelation of this "Masterpiece" coin for Unite Warriors Superion, it makes me rethink that odd rumor Chuckdawg (?) passed along months ago that Takara's Titan Devastator would be sold as a Masterpiece figure. Maybe each of the UW releases will be getting a Masterpiece coin. However, I still don't see Devastator being sold as six individual robots when the rest of the line so far has stuck to the gift set scheme.

Haha! I thought of that too. To be honest, this superion is really closer to a portrayal of the G1 cartoon rather than an homage or update like a lot of the classics line was so maybe they see this as a masterpiece. Does this mean we wouldnt get MP combiners down the line then?

The issue with using the Unite Warriors molds as "Masterpiece" stand-ins for the combiners doesn't work in terms of scale, though. Superion will look a little silly next to Masterpiece Ultra Magnus at the very least. Takara has been trying hard to keep scale consistent with the Masterpiece line after rebooting with MP-10 Convoy. On the other paw, doing properly scaled and engineered combiners may be cost-prohibitive for retail, especially for a niche collector oriented sub line. Maybe Takara doesn't plan to do "real" MP combiners, so they figured United Warriors is "it", or nothing.

Second that. If you all recall during an interview with the MP UM team, one consideration was that it (costs)won't break the bank.

I think it's reasonable to consider the coin apart from the toy.

The figures might be Generations style, but the coin might be 'Masterpiece'.

Perhaps such a coin is what led to the Devy MP rumor?

I had actually thought of all the points above when I first saw the coin, but kinda dismissed it. But Megsy here? I think he hit the nail on the head. The "inside guy" saw a Devy coin labelled Masterpiece and ran running to the interwebs.

Believe it or not I've seen quite a few MP coins on the secondary market for cheap. You could always buy the Superion one if it shows up.

Haha, yeah, I have seen those too (Skywarps for example). But I wouldnt pay for a coin, I dont collect them. It's more of a nice to have.

The collector-whore in my head wouldn't let me ignore those coins. And I've got every one now so why stop now? :DANCE:

The holders have as much attention to detail as the coins ;)
