Masterpiece Bumblebee In-Hand Images

Posted on 10-23-2014 at 06:52 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
27475270d1414056949-mp-21-masterpiece-bumblebee-99_117112_5ef363504b213f5 Happy Thursday! We've got some great in-hand images of Masterpiece Bumblebee to share with you this morning, courtesy of dlarirang from ACToys!

You can see from these images that Masterpiece Bumblebee is appropriately short for his diminutive stature - he's around the size of a small deluxe. Worry not though because dlarirang reports that the transformation is satisfyingly complicated particularly with respect of the legs. The color is also described as being fairly close to the orange end of yellow - no bright yellow Bees here! It's noted that the fists are different from past Masterpieces and are a solid piece, without articulated fingers likely owing to the smaller size.

Check out the images after the break and get excited for the Masterpiece series release of the little yellow 'bot!

Takara MP-24 Star Saber - Die-cast Parts Shown

Posted on 10-06-2014 at 09:31 AM by StayingInTheBox under Transformers Masterpiece
uWKkklU Masterpiece Star Saber designer Hisashi Yuki continues to trickle in updates and teases for the fans of the upcoming Star Saber release. This time around Yuki tweeted a picture of the die-cast parts that will be incorporated into the Star Saber design. From the picture we can see the feet, antennas (not the antennas on Star Saber's head though), engine nozzles, gun barrels, etc. will all be die-cast. The addition of die-cast parts will undoubtedly help with the stability and sturdiness of this Masterpiece figure. As Optimus Primal once said: "Die Cast Construction ... It's a lost art."

Are you happy with the amount of die-cast? Should more or less be added?

Bx6GYOuCAAES9ci We continue to be surprised with new reveals and features from the Transformers Masterpiece toy line. Earlier this morning we learned even more about MP Star Saber and now it's Wheeljack's turn to surprise us, which was just recently released in Japan.

Weibo user ZEUX1S shared with us an interesting reveal when Wheeljack's head sculpt was disassembled, showing off a strong resemblance to the Animated Wheeljack's head design. TFW2005 board member GogDog put together a side by side image of MP and Animated Wheeljack's heads showing what appears to be a mustache on the Masterpiece figure among other shared characteristics, similar to the Animated design.

Coincidence? A nod to Animated fans by the Takara designers? We'll let you be the judge, so hit the discussion link below!
