    It's time to take your MP-05 to the next level, from a Masterpiece to Perfection! Included in this set is everything needed to upgrade your Masterpiece Megatron. The accessories will attach to Masterpiece Megatron in gun mode as well as transform just like the G1 toy parts did! Also included will be a metal balancing weight to make the overall feel of Masterpiece Megatron be much heavier than he currently is, and more representative of if he were made with die-cast parts. Just how all this will attach and transform, is a big secret and will be unveiled once this great set is released. This is a custom kit designed by Justitoys of Hong Kong.! Preorders still available - Release Date: August

    Due to the popularity of this item, it is on temporary backorder. The demand has been huge, and we have more on the way but are awaiting an ETA. If you don't mind waiting for your order, please order now and we will ship it out as soon as our stock is received. Otherwise we are in a holding pattern until more stock arrives.

    Beause the white one is fugly and the blue one IS Soundwave. I know they were trying to go with the ipod aesthetic with the white one but it looks terrible.

    Yeah, until you see the price they're bound to charge for him. But, hey, if you can get him go for it! And that's no cut on TFSource, I shop there myself.

    I'm hoping some of the first issues show up - Trailbreaker, Ratchet, and Ironhide...but since they were so limited it's doubtful. I'd pay an arm and a leg for any of them!

    Love the MP-5 accessories. DO want.
    However, $99 is a ludicrous ripoff of a price for the Chinese DVD set.

    I bought the set from tfsource and it's not bad. The only problem is that it's all in Chinese, there's no Enlgish anywhere except for the profile names in the book holding the discs.

    I've been trying unsuccessfully to find English translations of the menus and haven't had any luck. The artwork in the book are some older comics and it looks pretty good. There are 14 discs total, disc 1 is the extras, 2-13 with the shows, and 14 with the movie. The menu music (which is the movie version of the theme song) is only in single channel mono but once the show starts you get stereo sound. Quality-wise, the shows are the same as the Rhino sets - with the added sounds and some remasterring. The pre and post commercial bumps are absent though, which kinda disappointed me. Although that makes is a lot easier to watch the episodes since one scene fades out and it comes right back on.

    Unfortunately all the color and animation errors are still present. Also, I haven't made it through every disc yet but I'm noticing the episodes run out of order. Not really a big deal in Season 2 since they were made to be shown in any order, but for Season 3 they need to be watched in the right way.

    You'll have to play around with the menus to figure out how to get everything just the way you want it. That took some time.

    Overall I think the set is worth having, if anything for the extras (the keychain and the postcards) as well as the comic artwork.

    Well I emailed Curt the other day and asked about whether or not they were going to carry an anime accurate Screamer if Takara Releases one and he said they were contacting people and if he's successful the Pre-Order will be up on the site soon.
