MP-12 Lambor/Sideswipe Packaging and In-hand Photos

Posted on 08-23-2012 at 09:37 PM by process under Japanese Transformers

Photos have emerged via ACTOY.net, showing Masterpiece Lambor/Sideswipe out of package and in-hand. The photos aren't big, but they are clear and convey an excellent sense of what we can expect from the final retail product. The packaging is compact, follows the standard Takara Masterpiece format, and displays the Lamborghini logo prominently. MP-12 is due out towards the end of this year.

Staff Edit: The original source, with additional photos, is here.

Bring it on! My body is ready!

Love the Tak MP boxes. So I guess no rubber tires....

That's supposed to be packaging, by the way.
Matty
I'm very happy with how this is turning out

And to pre-empt the remark, the door windows should fold up in robot mode:

Already? Damn, looks impressive. I wish there was some sort of clear plastic to let you see the digure inside.
Malach Ra
So, he's a little smaller than an alternator?
eyeballkid
I'll wait for the Hasbro release.

Ugh look at those windows in the ba-

Dammit!


This guy is a lot smaller than I thought, and I thought he was going to be tiny in the first place. Not a bad thing though. I don't know weather to jump on this, since I can justify 3P groups at this range. If I get to pick up Optimus then maybe I can get this guy to go with him.

looks great and all but im going to wait until it somes to the states. sorry but that small of a figure is not worth $80+ to me. $50 maybe but thats at the most.
Grimmjow
I freaking NEED this guy now. Although I don't like seeing him called "Lambor"...I display my Masterpieces with their box & card, so people who see him when I have him on display are gonna be confused when his stuff says Lambor, but I tell 'em his name is actually Sideswipe...
Jacer
Neo's gonna be excited about this....As am I

I'm inclined to do that as well but then I tried the same thing with Thundercracker, and yes its finally coming stateside but I would have preferred not to wait 2-3 years. However I know there is no guarantee that this would happen with Lambor.
OMEGAPRIME1983
Fan-freakin-tastic. I can't wait for these to get here!!
Streaker Prime
My hope is that despite the mold not being reused for another character, the prominent Lamborghini licensing arrangement spurs the quick development of MP Sunstreaker before Has/Tak would have to renew the contract.

A man can dream, can't he?
lildevilchick
OMG I need this now!
Cyber-Scream
I need this in my life.

So hawt

Neat. Still wish he had a jet pack (preferably one that could be used by MP-10), but otherwise I'm quite happy with how this one turned out.

Good luck with that bud. Id say more than a few people said that about MP Thundercracker too...
CodeXCDM
TBH, I kinda dig the idea of Sideswipe/Sunstreaker sharing a mold together... and as such they're the only two versions of that mold I have in my collection.

At least for now... until the brothers both are made into MPs... I think I'd pass on this version of the mold in favor of Red Alert... albeit... always did find it rather odd that a Lamborghini had a fire department deco... >_>

The figure does look rather sweet in any deco though.
MrFX
I've got the funds waiting for it right now. [JoeSwanson]Bring him onnnnn![/JoeSwanson]
Renidragon
Love it.

Curious about the choice of character - I don't recall Sideswipe being a huge character in G1, but I could be wrong. I don't care too much, though - this figure looks fantastic. I'm not really an MP collector - I've got Hasbro's Rodimus, and that's it... but I think I'll be adding this one.

He's meant to be realatively in scale with the MP-10 Prime.
rxlthunder
It should come with a cardboard built it yourself jetpack.
MrFX
I hope someone manages to 3rd party clone the amazon.jp exclusive silver jackhammers. I like those more than the piledrivers he is coming with.
Axalon586
Way too small, i'm kinda bummed out now. Guess i'll go ahead and cancel my preorder.

naldopr

HnH

Stepper
The Lambor logo is bigger than any other logo on the packaging,an example of the other logo i am refering to is the "TakTomy" logo, "Autobot" logo etc.
Shockwave9227
I'm a bit surprised to see the packaging be the size of a bubble-shaped Alternator box.
primetime77
looks pretty awesome as it has for some time now. only bummer is the plastic tires WTF takara? size...well we knew what it was going to be once they said it was bot size scaled to mp-10. did anyone really think the thing was going to be in scale with mp-01?
maximus_73
Nah! it is not in scale with all my other generations toy line. Pure Awesome! glad I already put the ordered in.
Feralstorm

Kantus Prime
