Figure King January 2013 Edition Scans

Courtesy of toy-world.com.hk wehave scans from the Japanese hobby magazine Figure King for January 2013. There's not a tremendous amount of new and exciting material within - there's a look at the upcoming Transformers Prime Wildrider, Frenzy and Rumble figures as well as the Arms Micron five packs, Masterpiece Soundwave, Rumble and Ravage, Japanese Generations Combaticons and Animation style Encore Devastator. All items we have seen plenty of lately. What is interesting though for Bot Shots fans are some Japan-only BeCool releases including a green Jazz, a yellow "Rescue" Ratchet and an orange-brown Megatron. Don't read too much into these though - BeCool is not being marketed as a Transformers series, so these might be mere recolors for the sake of looking cool.

MP Ravage doesn't look as good as the other 3rd party ones or the one with classic Hound
Barricade24
Hmm...who is AM-32? Wildrider?
Hicks_Royel
Wait a minute... is that a button on the back of MP-Soundwave that opens the cassette deck?
Megatron31

Please tell me that those colors on fort max are just a prototype.

That button brings the second and third cassettes forward after the first has been ejected.

i'm not
Megatron31
you getting both?
Onslaught24
eventually. but for now i'm gonna start with the two i need: Onslaught and Swindle. my SDCC Swindle has a broken tab so this one will be a backup in case the other tab breaks (i intend to make a shapeways upgrade for him soon) and i can't pass up an Onslaught this good. i may get the others when there's a restock
Shin-Gouki
So that's where the Over Stock G2 Bruticus will be going
Megatron31
my problem is im a takara whore!

i know if i dont get it ill regret it and pay secondary market price on it just like i did the sdcc version

but i hate to let that box go
Onslaught24
it is an amazing box. and i know what you mean. i don't wanna have to get these guys on ebay
Megatron31
wow i just realized what i typed

but yeah its an awesome set

but the paint on these is awesome and soundwave looks epic!
REMINATOR
The way that guy hold FMax box, it looked very small as though it's about the same size as MP4/9 box. Since FMax is almost 2 feet, I was so sure his box would be much,much bigger....

Interesting. Blast-Off's arm mode hand is unpainted.

What are those funky colours on Fort Max?? I hope those aren't final images....
JukeOutlander
Shattered Glass Fort Max! Jk. Probably prototype colors or something.
[Wing_Saber-X]
Niceeeeeeeeeee.

The Funky Fort Max is the test shot that popped up at a fan event a couple of weeks ago.
General Tekno
So refresh my memory - is Soundwave due out mid-January, or the end of the month?

It's a 試作サンプル(shisaku sanpuru) aka prototype sample figure.

That Wildrider is looking good, but not enough to warrant a purchase. Everything else is disappointing as always.

i saw a hasbro fortmax box recently and am pretty sure it was quite a lot bigger, maybe the japan version had a smaller box? or maybe for economy of space they are packing him in a compacted state.
in the reissue with a smaller box.

They're still Ratchet and Jazz, according to the magazine.

Glad, I wasn't seeing thing, lol. With my lack of space, I wouldn't mind if TTomy pack him in that compact size box.

Onto Devastator Anime, I just realize his forearm is still purple. Hopefully the finish product is black. Otherwise it beats the Anime purpose.

MP13,15 = beautiful, can't wait to receive them.
Boardwise
MP Soundwave is tempting

Yes, and my anticipation for him grows the more I see him.

I'm kind of curious as to what's with the odd pictures on their chest. SOme sort of special attack? It still looks like they have the Fist and Gun from the videos on takaratomy's YT page.
DoubleClouder
Hmmm, looks like they switched Devestator's forearms back to purple. Kinda sucks. I liked the toon accurate black
grimlock1972
I think the fort max box is big as it should be, if it is a smaller box,maybe the packaged it in city mode to save on packaging costs?
opt1musaber
The Fort Max box looks normal to me

Hey! How do you switch Soundwave's chest decal? That looks awesome!

It's an alternate tape deck door.

I cannot wait!!

Gah, not enough money for all these lovely toys

So... Takara Soundwave + tapes or save the cash towards the expected FP Menasor?

Choices choices...

... well that's simply not true.
Chaosbringer
oh crap, I've just seen the one thing i don't like about MP Soundwave..

the shoulder launcher weapon does not rest on his shoulder when deployed, it's mounted way high on the thingy that makes it rotate forward from his back!
Soundwave3k
Seeing as we've seen other pictures where it's flush against his shoulder, I'm pretty sure it can be pushed down.
Sovietbot
I do not understand. That Takara will be releasing it in G2 version? If yes, then it as that strange. And here is had they done FOC Battle Gaia in E-Hobby version!)
Shockwave9227
I can't wait to order MP Soundwave! And I might try to get the Combaticons in the summer.
Renidragon
I know not everyone's a fan of the FOC Bruticus toys, but those pictures are a whole lot more flattering than Hasbro's. Still the same figure, but much less Kool-Aid-man.

I am also curious about the brown Fort Max. [Edit: Ah, prototype/test. Cool. I have one on preorder, wouldn't have gone for the alternate colors anyway, but was curious.]
Grimlockimus
Woah, that Bruticus

Anyone want to buy the SDCC one from me for the same price as this guy? I'd rather have the Japanese one with it's much more accurate colors.

You have to send in robot points or something to get it.
