    It has to be a photoshop you can still see a sihoutte of laserbeak on his shoulder where they couldn't get him out of the picture all the way.

    That's why I posted the question mark. But was it Photoshopped on the presentation screen or afterwards?

    I figured it was one slide transitioning into the next, and the photo was snapped before the transition was 100% done.

    You can also see Laserbeaks silhouette on his shoulder. I can't see how they could reuse the mold for Shockwave.

    Could be a prototype, or a teaser image using Soundwave as a makeshift base. That, and Shockwave is the most likely Decepticon for the next Masterpiece toy.

    But for them to reveal 3 different masterpiece toys, alongside the new MP cassettes, it's simply too much for one reveal.

    Unless of course they're trying to make MP the next CHUG, with representations of ALL the characters.

    I'm calling this an enthusiastic home-made 'shop.

    Then again, I'm hoping this is an enthusiastic Takara-made 'shop, showing the possibility of repurposing the Soundwave mold into... er... a box with MP Grimlock legs?

    It's possible that it isn't a photoshop.

    If it is a photoshop job, we can find out if it was done at the presentation if official word comes out about Shockwave.

    It's a photoshop, pure and simple. If it was real, it would have been covered in the other galleries from the panel.

    definitely looks like it's taken before the transition is completed.
    We really need more Japanese people here. If this happened in the states we'd have 400 members there as well as live coverage of everything. Now we get a blurry picture and no word from anyone who was actually there to hear what was said.

    hear that TFW staff? get crackin' and recruit more Japanes TF fans :D

    I'm willing to bet that Megatron V2 is the next Decepticon MP toy.
