So, now there is a second version of the Sideswipe collector's coin? Have any other Masterpiece releases been so distinguished?

So anyone got the Sideswipe Asia reissue yet? Any confirmation whether it has more consistent red paint panel coloration or better fitting pieces in alt mode than the previous runs?

Has anyone ordered the MP-10 reissue from amiami.com? Curious what they charge for shipping to North America. Or is there a more economical option for US buyers?

I just got to transforming my TT Lambor. Again, what can I say? An amazing work in engineering. It's just weird that his shins don't lock in place.

Also, one thing weird, in a review posted concerning him, the Brit reviewer mentioned that the white plastic in the figure is yellowing compared to the original release. I checked the white in my version and it's "BONE" white. So that supposed difference must be confined to his version.

According to Amazon Japan, it seems like MP-11 Starscream is set to be reissued on April 30, 2017.

I read that MP-13, MP-15 & MP-16 (Soundwave and the tapes,) will probably get reissued, too.

This incredible if they all get reissued because I was just about get into the masterpiece line fully and most of those are pretty expensive on the aftermarket now.

Yeah, I've been waiting for an MP-11 reissue myself. Especially with MP-36 coming up.

Though I wish Takara hadn't released Starscream so early into the reboot, I bet they could have done a much better job now (ladder magic.) And it's unlikely that they will redo him after releasing all those other jets.

But he is too prominent a character to skip and a personal favourite, so hopefully it'll be available on HLJ, too.

Multiple sources have provided us with the latest new pre-orders for Masterpiece figures which are about to be reissued. Among these figures are a reissue of MP-10 Optimus Prime, MP-11 Starscream, and MP-13 Soundwave with all of his cassettes (MP-15 and MP-16). These figures are set to be released in April of next year, which corresponds with the MP-36 Megatron release, meaning this could be a very busy month for Masterpieces! You can check out all of the pre-orders that we have available to show you below.

It's nice to see a reissue for those that missed out and don't want to spend a ton of money on the secondary market. I'm interested in knowing how MP-10 and 13 will do here in the US. I know some folks prefer Takara over Hasbro, but there is quite the price premium to be paid for that privilege.

For MP-13, while the price is the same, the Hasbro Asia reissue will include the extra tapes.

As for MP-10, the Hasbro Asia reissue is still available from BBTS for $160, which is the one I bought a while back. And if you want Takara's, the prior reissue is still available from BBTS for $190. Not entirely sure why this 3rd reissue is $220.

I need Soundwave still, I have all of the other rereleases (including the tapes, but I'm fine with my TRU Starscream), but how to pay for him and Megatron at the same time along with some other Japanese figures I've already got ordered? Looks like there'll be a lot of overtime at work in my future...

Seeing all these links, I thought I'd point out this too...

I know some people are very particular about what 'version' of an MP they get... and we're seeing rereleases at BBTS for MP-13 for $159USD and MP 14, 15.... for $45 each.

However, They also are selling this one.

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK12406&mode=retail

Which is Soundwave and all FIVE cassettes for $159. Same price as Soundwave alone, but you get another $88 worth of cassettes. I preordered that in August and due out in December some time.

They are both listed as Takara... so if there's a difference... I'm not seeing it, but that 6 pack sure looks like the best deal to me.

I said the exact same thing a few days ago, and I also ordered the Hasbro Asia reissue back in August. Same with mp10. Hasbro Asia reissue available for 159,and prior Takara reissue for 189. Even more curious why anyone would get newest reissue of it for over 200. But people definitely are particular about the differences between hasbro and takara. I personally am ok with the hasbro versions as the better value.

I was even shocked to see that BBTS had them both listed as Takara... So the Hasbro vs. Takara thing doesn't even work. My color vision isn't great, so if ther'es something subtle going on... I don't see it.

I even already picked up the 4 KO cassettes a couple years ago.. but still going with the 6 pack to get the 'real' ones. Compared to EBay's $280-$350 price tag for JUST soundwave... I consider this a steal.

Oh NICE! I haven't seen that one...

I have little intrest in Ratbat and Zero in the Black Soundwave... so I kind of wrote him off. If I can the original cassettes that I remember from childhood... I'm content.

The takara reissue with only laserbeak has red eyes. Tje reissue you see with all the casettes has yellow eyes. That's the main difference.
