Are you kidding? It looks even more monochrome than the Hasbro one.
Oh, and Starscream is hilariously mistransformed. Breakdown's looking pretty awesome, though...so long as all that gray plastic is confined to the unpainted AM version.
I wonder if the Takara Jet Vehicon has that particular arms micron too. If it doesn't I'm gonna struggle to get an accurate looking weapon for it!
What does that say about MP-13?
Knockout looks pretty sweet if that is his actual paintjob.
Love that Breakdown.
Looks like it's suggesting MP-12 is gonna be a midget compared to Optimus. MP-13? Sort of looks like it could be Soundwave, but maybe that's just me wishing
yeah, much better than the Hasbro one, but still need to paint the rims
Wow, Breakdown looks basically perfect there. Do we know when he's due out in the US yet?
MP-13 looks like Shockwave to me.
Anyways, Breakdown and Knockout's Microns look cool. Glad I have two of Arms Micron Vehicons on preorder.
That's the easy part, they pop right out. The stripes, inside shoulder detailing, and rear end are the hard parts. That candy red is gonna be sweet to detail over though. I may get this sucker now. Breakdown has been on preorder for months since I don't know Hasbros release date for it.
Breakdown is pure sex. Must have him. MP13? Hehehehehe...looks like what I think he is.
not at all wheres the gun arm?
Probably hidden or photoshopped out to conceal the surprise.
You forgot to mention the other bits they photoshopped to mislead us into thinking it's someone other than Shockwave.
Knockout looks better but he has a big wart on the middle of his chest.
Thanks for the pics! Wow! Knockout seems promising.......
Also, if MP12 is that size, hopefully the price of masterpiece figures will drop and masterpieces will be produced faster!
BTW, what class size do you think MP12 is? Is it voyager?
Probably between a voyager and a deluxe judging from the comparative pic.
Size will drop 1/3 price will drop 25%.
We loose Takara wins.
And on size class, height was already discussed. Pricing, Takara don't go by size class, they go by whatever they think they can charge.
Although i'm curious to see how Hasbro might price such a thing.......30th anniversary on the Horizon and all that.
Well, i'm somewhat fine with takara/hasbro reducing the size of masterpiece figures but i hope they will still be worthy of the 'masterpiece' title.......
Sometime after Skyquakes wave. Current speculation just guesses Wave 4 voyagers. Probably one to a case.
Probably still about 6 months out at the earliest if time between waves so far is anything to go by.
This might actually be the only Takara Prime figure I go after if only because I have very little faith that we'll see a Hasbro Voyager Breakdown this year.
