MP-16 Frenzy & Buzzsaw In Hand Photos

ACTOYS.net member sweet13524 has uploaded in-hand photos of the upcoming MP-16 Frenzy & Buzzsaw set.

As is evident from the photos, MP-16 comes in the standard black Takara Tomy Masterpiece box. Although we've seen the various accessories that are included with this set, including pile drivers and weapons for Frenzy, photos of the instructions reveal some details about the interaction between these cassette figures and the also soon-to-be-released MP-13 Masterpiece Soundwave. Notably, Masterpiece Soundwave appears to have storage compartments for Frenzy's weapons, and he can mount the pile drivers on his arm as a double-barreled cannon.

Updated with more photos of Frenzy and Buzzsaw from another user on ACToys!

Check out all the photos after the jump!

Chest chrome damaged fresh from the package.

That's always nice to see...

Cool that the weapons for Rumble and Frenzy can store inside Soundwave, and that Soundwave can use the piledrivers as weapons too.

Seems way too even for that. Maybe it's a paint error?

EDIT: Nevermind - saw the other pics. Wow... Huh.
CVprowl
ugh. that chest looks horrible... way to go takblo.
SoundBlaster7
Wow, what an awful paint job
What the hell is happening with the MP line?
Wyvern
Are these test shots?
Niv3k
The paintjob made me die from the inside.

I like these designs. Considering the limitations of transforming into a cassette tape, I think these are the best versions of these characters we will ever get. That said, aesthetically, think I like Perfect Effect's Rumble and Frenzy better. Robot mode wise. But still...we're getting MP tapes. And a MP Soundwave. For me, as a big fan of Buzzsaw, I have to say I am eagerly anticipating this set. Flaws and all.

Between all the new MP's and the plethora of must have 3rd party toys, this year is going to kick my wallet's ass.

I'm assuming these aren't the final versions, no way could they be that sloppy.
Nyarlahotep
Paint looks bad, and at $30 a piece they should be magnificent. Is that clear orange cassette from the shattered glass soundwave/blaster set?

That's what I'm thinking also. They look like test shots.
Valkysas
Test shots don't usually come in retail boxes with instructions.
David Hingtgen
And while MP-12's test shot paint was bad---retail was worse.
cryotek
Can't wait to get these. I agree. These look like test shots.

look how nice they look on the cover of the box... what a joke.
Wyvern
Mock up packaging?

I'm in love with Buzzsaw.

sorry I don't know y I saw set $30 a piece they need to be flawless

Rumble/Frenzy's lower legs are.. are...

Heck he has them spun around in the piledriver shot just to make it look like he is crouching... I have heard of Thunder thighs but thunder boots!? I had not noticed that before D:

It's still a must buy for Buzzsaw

Interesting that Soundwave has areas of storage for Frenzy/Rumble parts...
Ra88
I have a bad feeling that this will be a widespread QC issue.
zzyss
Seems so inconsistent. In some shots the chest paint is there, then in other shots they're not. I don't think they're the same toys between pictures... mixture of retail and test shots, methinks.

HAHAHAHA... no need to apologize dude. I'm just messing...
GrimlockAutobot
Does this mean that the cassettes are coming out alot sooner than expected? They're slated for a March release.
dannyboy76
Strange we are getting in hand pics as this isn't due until late march. Ravage/Rumble is late Feb and I haven't seen any pics like these.

Rumble/Frenzy transformation looks an exact copy of G1. Not much to work with though.
Type-R
I like the Cassetticon weapon storage feature on Soundwave.

If you compare the paintjob between every photo, you'll notice it goes from looking non existant, to half there, to all there... I think we're merely dealing with a lighting issue here folks. Let's calm down.

His legs are not spun around. He is crouching.

Or it was fine-ish from the box and after few minutes of playing it got scraped off completely

No it's a KO. The clear Cassette from the sG set is a clear yellow and opaque white Rewind / Eject redeco. Totally different.

Hmm You are right!, those knee joints gave the impression he was hinging from back in the crouching pose.. but still those lower legs look very thick.

With the perfection Buzzsaw is showing, I'm surprised they gave frenzy thunder boots.

there is def a f***** up paint job on his chest. hopefully this is some kind of NOT final product shoot. lighting issue?

and its not like takara has a recent history of selling mps shoddy paint apps.
zappatton2
I don't mind the paint job, aside from the chest scuffing that may or may not be a lighting issue. I am still excited for these guys. However, I've never seen that Ramhorn before, is that a potential MP Ramhorn? And if so, should we be expecting Blaster any day now??
CVprowl
in this pic i could see hmm maybe its a lighting issue...




these two pics mare obvious a horribly irregular paintjob.






also, the paint job on all three pics looks to match up.
grandizerGo
maybe this guy had this set for a long time and has transformed them a bunch of times and other people have handled them..even the box looks pretty shelfworn..

It's a 3rd Party item.

Yes that's a really neat touch. They have put some thought into this.

Yeah you're right they look 'worn' but doesn't bode well at how long the decor will stand up if this is how they look already. Hopefully these are just testpieces.

That Buzzsaw is gorgeous in every way though. How the hell are there pictures of this set out the already???
Niv3k
Does Buzzsaw have his camera thing?

Exactly. I'm sure these figures were handled, dropped, posed, transformed back an forth numerous times. The box has probably been passed around a crap load of times with these SAMPLE figures within them. I fear not. TT will make pull through for us.

If he's a straight repaint of laserbeak, he should.

He should also have higher Firepower rating than Year of the Snake Omega Supreme.

Read the post right above yours.

And to Gilgamesh - Thanks for the info!

I transated the review from actoys and it states that these come with more Takara paint defects, no metal as well. So I guess its now quanity instead of quality in this masterpiece line. Might as well let China take over if this is the way its gonna be. While their at it, change the name from masterpiece to s**tpiece so it all makes sense to us.
starfish
On the picture of the two in cassette mode,there appears to be an alphanumeric code tampo'd onto Frenzy.

As far as I'm aware this won't be present on the final production run (I've never seen it on any previous photos) - meaning that these are likely to be samples.
Josh
i really wish it was the [blue guy] packed with ravage

he's rumble to me T___T

if this is the case there isn't really a reason to go with hastak over a good quality third party mp. QC issues on MPs are unacceptable. i hope when i wake up this will all be a misunderstanding and this is just some protoshoot. i fear it is not. good night.
