Transformers Asia has posted new webpages and images of upcoming releases, including reissues of Masterpiece Skywarp, using the MP-11 mold, as well as Barricade and Soundwave from the now defunct Human Alliance line.

We've mirrored the images below, but before you go and check them out, stop by our galleries to see these figures in stunning high resolution clarity.

Skywarp using the MP-03 mold, and Starscream using the MP-11 mold, to give you an idea of how Skywarp will look. As for the Human Alliance figures, here's Barricade and his partner in crime, Frenzy, followed by Soundwave and his partner, Laserbeak.

And now, the mirrored images:

Lucky me I didn't buy MP Skywarp yet, now I'll wait for this one! :grin: :grin: :grin:

And also HA Barricade is on my most wanted list (Soundwave is quite ugly).

Holy Crap! Holy Crap! Holy Crap!

Can you tell I'm excited? We'll finally have updated MP-11 versions of all three Seeker Aces!

Huh, interesting. Neither are reissues in the true sense of the word:

- Skywarp uses the retooled MP-11 mold, and has a designation to match: MP-11SW. So it's more akin to a specialised redeco.
- HA Barricade and HA Soundwave may not be reissues either, but redecos as well: the set is designated APS-03, as the third release of the "Asia Premium Series" that previously had Striker Optimus and Leader Brawl. (anybody remember those?)

Well played.

So Skywarp is going to be an Asia release? Not for Japan? Want to make sure I can get it from the Japanese retailers and not the HK retailers... those guy charge too much for shipping.

$200? holy.......
i'd really like a skywarp along the lines of the new starscream, but no way is he worth 200 to me.

Asia Reissue Starscream was $200...

I would love it cheaper, and it may go on sale, but $200 doesn't seem entirely unreasonable.

Starscream has a cape! this thing has a rectangle! Actually if they just give us a plastic rectangle box.... I'm kind of okay with it. I need shelf raisers anyway

Skywarp is smothered in show-accurate goodness! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

All except for his insignias not being upside-down.

At first I thought those were :G2CON: symbols on Skywarp, but if I look at it at an angle, I can see that they are not. It's a shame that Takara didn't put that kind of twist on Skywarp like they do on their other figures.

This is Hasbro Asia, not Takara.

Transformers Asia is owned by neither Hasbro nor Takara Tomy, they're an independent group that sources their exclusives from both companies. I guess their location puts them in a unique position to do so.
