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!

only thing I still don't like is that seam in the missile.... couldn't they make it one piece... that's just shoddy work... KFC answer the call and come up with better missiles...

Its getting closer. Looking at those pictures I started to worry about the crispness of the colours on the white body. I can see there being a few wobbly lines and smears. Fingers crossed Im wrong!

I want this figure, but dammit, that missile launcher is all sorts of ugly. I'm also tired of this "gun goes on the roof" thing. It's silly and has never been a part of G1 that I can recall. I'd rather they include stickers like MP Starscream.

Do we know, other than MP01 and MP12G, what figures are based on non-Japanese art? :-?
MP-8X King Grimlock.


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

Just to add to the convo.
Well, there are also the Reissues from the early 2000s that used Dreamwave artwork, and the Revoltechs that are directly based on Pat Lee's artwork, but then again that's not Takara.

But yeah, generally Takara uses their own art, although it's sometimes by US or international artists that also work for Hasbro.

Minute OCD moment. In WJs advertisement/decal, on WJ's doors, the yellow banner, Tomy wasn't able to recreate it or get the license? Too bad.Calling reprolabels.

Yeah, but we were specifically talking about just Takara Masterpieces.

They got the licensing for Alitalia and Lancia...but yes, the other dozen or so sponsors are all missing as I'm sure it woulda cost a fortune to get them all. No doubt Reprolabels will make a set, just as long as there are no cigarette companies! :roll:

No, I don't think so. The cigarette comment was based on their lame ass stance of not doing a set for MP-23...because they don't like smoking. It's a good thing they like trademark infringement or they'd really be in a pickle!

I guess since they spent the paint budget on the red and green, there was no money left for white? Not overly fond of the unpainted white plastic, but it's a minor issue for me. Otherwise, this is an amazing figure.
