    Good evening from Japan. It became later than other people, but I introduce a report of TOY SHOW, too.

    TOKYO TOY SHOW 2012 TAKARATOMY Event stage - YouTube
    TOKYO TOY SHOW 2012 Event stage part1

    An introduction of MP begins from 13 minutes 50 seconds of the video.
    MP had the remark that was going to release a character with a "car" as a motif for a while.

    [​IMG]
    I confirmed that I could attach a foot of MP Laserbeak to an irregularity part of a shoulder and the arm of Soundwave.
    The MP sound waves confirmed that they could put away three pieces of cassettes in the chest.

    When TOMY projected a silhouette of MP SOUNDWAVE on the screen, a silhouette of some SHOCKWAVE was projected by screen.
    Because this is direction to surprise the people of the meeting place, it is a fake. However, I yearn for MP SHOCKWAVE.

    Thanks for the info :) 

    Red Alert doesn't look half bad, and neither does the interior for the vehicle mode either, especially for what I'm guessing will be the smallest MP toys yet.

    I really love that they made those subtle differences for alert. It really helps to set them apart while keeping the same basic mold.

    Thank you for the video! Oh man, I absolutely love how the multiple cassettes store and appear in Soundwave's tape deck. I had to do a double take when it looked like Rumble/Frenzy materialized in the window when he took Laserbeak out!

    Masterpiece Laserbeak puts a camera on the head.

    SOUNDWAVE has a function to push in front of a cassette in the chest.

    Thanks man!

    Only just now realized why we recently got a reissue G1 Sideswipe.

    Also, "character with a car motif" gives me hope we're indeed getting Ultra Magnus, the car trailer, pretty soonish.

    Thanx for the video. I couldn't understand a lick of it but I can say this; Those Takara employees love their job. It is nice to see the designers/staff having as much fun as the toy as their intended audience will.


    MASTERPIECE- The toys line the grew up with the G1ers.

    The chest mechanism that pops another cassette to the front is pretty bad ass. And towards the end of the video is that a colored Frenzy (red and black) prototype? Are there any pictures of that?

    Any confirmation on rubber tyres for Side Swipe? Still gutted there's no interior details. After what they could pull off with, say, Binal-tech Jazz or the Alternaties this seems like a step backwards in that regard wich is a shame for such a flagship line.

    Considering the robot modes of most bin/alts, I'm happy they haven't focused on interior car details. That would require a lot of empty space within the car, which would give them less room to store robot parts. Now we can get very G1 accurate robots instead of "cool car that is also a robot which vaguely resembles a familiar character". :D
