    We have some big news regarding upcoming Masterpiece figures!

    Now up for preorder:
    MP-12 Masterpiece Sideswipe - MP-12 - Masterpiece Sideswipe - Lambor - $99.95 C9 Box/$104.95 Mint Box
    MP-12A Masterpiece Red Alert - MP-12A - Masterpiece Red Alert - $99.95 C9 Box/$104.95 Mint Box
    MP-13 Masterpiece Soundwave - MP-13 - Masterpiece Soundwave - $159.95 C9 Box/$164.95 Mint Box

    All of the details are not final, and will be finalized mid-June, but our source says these prices are accurate. Also Masterpiece Red Alert and Soundwave are both scheduled for a December release, just in time for the holidays!

    Keep in mind, all of the above is subject to change. As such there is no penalty for customers to preorder, or cancel. If the items aren’t released/are canceled, you don’t like the final product, or the price goes up and you’re not happy, we will cancel any preorders without any questions asked. So there is no risk to preorder at TFsource! Simply email us and we will cancel your order. Additionally if the final Japanese retail drops, we’ll drop the price on your preorder as well.

    Finally for those customers that already preordered MP-12 Masterpiece Sideswipe, we will be adjusting your merchandise total. Please be patient, we will adjust the prices on everyone’s orders/stacks next week so that you get the lower price!

    For those who are curious on the retail of Masterpiece Soundwave and why it’s higher, we’re not sure. Except based on the listing says it’s a different packaging size… more will be revealed on this in a couple of weeks.

    They must have gotten solicitations from Takara (or maybe HasTak Asia)

    I like the fact that Takara-Tomy is stepping up to the plate and challenging 3rd parties. This is without a doubt a direct response to the "not-Soundwave."

    doubt its a response. Takes at least 2 years to develope these figures. No way they saw the 3rd party sw and decide to make their own and be done so quickly. Though it wouldn't surprise me if takara told the makers of the 3rd party sw to stop cuz they don't want a competing product.
