We've received word from Seibertronian Cyberpath that Transformers MP-19+ Smokescreen is now available at the TakaraTomy Mall! We first reported on this item when it was first revealed at the Tokyo Toy Show last month.

As noted by our own Wily William-James in the original piece:
"This is the cartoon accurate deco. Most of the original logos are removed and very vibrant colours. There is also a different face as well as a new smoke accessory. As with most figures in the MP+ subline, this will be a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive item. That means that while it will be available from your standard local importers, it will not be on Amazon Japan to purchase at a discount. So, it's full price of 8,500 yen ($78.53 USD) will be unavoidable. He will be released in the winter."

The item is currently listed at Y9,180 or $90.86US. Tell this guy to try the patch or some nicotine gum because he doesn't believe in quitters - don't forget this amazing piece comes with a pair of unique smoke accessories that makes it stand out from your MP collection like few others.

Are you going to be ordering the bot with the chin that makes you grin? Let us know in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news.

I appreciate Takara's incorporating the bots' "permanent" weapons into their transformations. Though now was their chance to give Smokescreen's cannons articulation at the neck so they could point up.

The facial expressions make him even more, well, expressive.

And I like how they painted the insides of his legs black.


Here's my original just for fun..

This one reminds of me Diaclone art --

Meh another money grab move, Takara is starting to become like Hasbro. Nice for people that missed out on him the first time around, but nothing to justify buying him again.

What we do need is a re-issue of Takara Legends Weirdwolf with fixes to the dang hinges that breaks on everyone sooner or later.

Fellow Seibertronian PrimevsPrime has been busy with video reviews. Not only does he have a review up for the new Earthrise Wheeljack but he also took time to make a video review of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-19+ Smokescreen. This rerelease is made with a more cartoon accurate look, including a new face. He goes through all the accessories and changes in the video below.

I just uploaded a review of the Mp19+ Smokescreen and showcased some of its updates from the original release.

He looks interesting.I prefer the old face,but the smoke effects are nice.

Armada Smokescreen would make a cool toy too.

Day 11 of waiting for Transformers Armada Masterpiece news.

Armada masterpiece won't happen, 90% of the designs were not real vehicles or animals...Takara is not going to make masterpiece figures out of such low budget toys with no real nostalgic value. 90% of armada were like cheap dollar store knock offs.

I think you are wrong here. The children who grew up with the Unicron Trilogy are not yet at the age were disposable income is a thing. There are close, though, and in the next ten years or so, I think you'll start seeing a rather large uptick in Armada nostalgia.
