I don't collect the MP Coins but this one I may have to get!

Nice. I've got all the coins from MP-09 onwards. I've lost the urge to collect them though.
Anybody seen anything more on the Japan Amazon exclusive version?
Robot Kingdom has had these previously, but so far has not posted pre orders.
Preorders are currently up on Amazon.co.jp but it doesn't seem to be possible to get it shipped to the US. I can't enter a US address when setting up an account.
Looks awesome. Kinda want. I usually give them coins away.
This is certainly the best looking one to date!
Although they are a little bit pointless, I do like the collector coins & this looks one of the best.
I've got all the MP and Encore coins so far, but I don't think I'll get any more of them in the future. It's cheaper to buy the toys coin-less from Japan than to buy with-coin from HK. A guy I know got Fort Max for $100 less than me by getting his from Japan with no coin.
This one definitely looks awesome. Alas, I don't think I'll get this since I'm buying from Japan :/
Nice! I wonder what the coins will look like for his moldmates.
Looks like this originated at Transformers Asia - watch this page for the one for Streak:

Here is a good news for all Masterpiece Fans!
All MP-17, MP18 preorders on Robotkingdom on or before 15th September 2013 will be guaranteed with the Coin and Amazon Exclusive Missile Launcher.
I hate to be that guy but since you only get one launcher per figure and I can't afford to order two of each figure, I'm just gonna wait for the eventual Dr. Wu versions.
hahaha. Seriously?!?! All the pictures i've seen have shown each one with TWO launchers on their body. Each figure released will come with a PAIR of launchers. The Amazon Sideswipe and Soundwave both came with two of their exclusives pieces i.e. Sideswipe with 2 pile drivers and Soundwave with 2 energon cubes.
Where did you see that 1 launcher per figure nonsense???
Is it only a coin, or a whole badge? Either way, this could be my first one...

With the exception of robot mode all pics show ONE missile launcher and all descriptions say missile launcher (SINGULAR).
Try doing some research before assuming you're correct and calling nonsense… I did.
Interesting. It's been right under my nose the whole time. With Sideswipe they offered it with and without the exclusive. I was expecting a second listing and then the bonus isn't mentioned till you scroll down so I didn't even realize I was looking at it.
I'm really glad I asked. I might not have caught this until after the 9-15 deadline. (I've been checking and seeing this listing for over a month now- I feel stupid)
I actually like Bluestreak's built in launchers better than Prowl's. I figure if I get both than I'll have a full set to put on one of them. Most likely Prowl.
I'm wondering if maybe the G1 missiles will fit into the built-in ones. They appear hollow at least some ways down, so even if the G1 missiles don't fit (or they do but you don't have a G1 version, like me), there is probably some way to add missiles for that full look.
I think I'm probably going to cancel my BBTS pre-orders and order one of each from RK to get at least one official set. I have no interest in the coins though, to be honest.
I apologize for not looking into it. But the fact that Takara and Amazon are showing off 2 launchers on each figure and then only including 1 is pretty ridiculous. I guess they're thinking is if you buy both Prowl and Streak, you'll have 1 pair for 1 bot. Hope they're the same colors...
I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled to BBTS and ebay to get the launchers.
They look to be the same colour, both Streak and Prowl show black bases on them. It would also be total crap if they expect you to buy both figures to get a set and then make them different colours.
And technically only Streak had the launchers in the G1 cartoon series (though Prowl toy had them as well).
I do agree that it is dubious business practice to show figures with both launchers without an in pic disclaimer. They had to know that those pics were going to be separated from the original listings. I hope they enjoy hate mail.
Neat but I have no desire to collect coins. The figures themselves are works of art that I'll appreciate instead.
