New Color Image of MP-26 Masterpiece Road Rage!

Posted on 05-08-2015 at 07:49 AM by Mechafire under Transformers Masterpiece
MP-Road-Rage-2 TFW2005 site sponsors BigBadToyStore and RobotKingdom have just put up preorders for the highly-anticipated MP-26 Masterpiece Road Rage figure, giving us our first look at her color scheme, alt-mode, and accessories.

Road Rage is very faithful to her original her colors - though strangely enough, she also appears to be taking some inspiration from her Animated incarnation with her white biceps and thighs. Her alt-mode, apart from presumably the colors, appears identical to Tracks', although it seems she may lack the shiny paintjob Tracks features. As for her accessories, she will come with a mini Twincast boombox - the rebuilt form of Blaster (AKA Billy).

UPDATE:
Courtesy of Autobase Aichi, we have a couple of better images.

Get your preorders in here, and make the jump to take a look at the new pics!

Comparison Pictures of Masterpiece Tracks and Road Rage Prototypes

Posted on 05-03-2015 at 12:34 AM by Sentinel under Transformers Masterpiece
image TAG Hobby has posted some side-by-side comparison pictures of the upcoming TakaraTomy MP-25 Tracks and MP-26 Road Rage.

These pictures highlight the changes made to the Tracks mold to create the female character Road Rage. You can do a direct comparison between the two figures to see:

-slimmer, more rounded hips/pelvis
-streamlined thighs
-redesigned biceps to add more detail
-new face and head
-new collarbone/upper chest???

She also comes with the G1 toy-accurate gun that originally came with Tracks.

Takara has gone to a lot of effort and utilized some fairly significant retooling to create a new character that holds the distinction of being the first (hopefully of many) female Masterpiece figure.

Sound off in the discussion thread to let us know what you think about the differences between the two molds or if you see anything I've missed.

Transformers Masterpiece MP-06 Bluestreak Box Image & Official Images

Posted on 04-22-2015 at 06:39 AM by Trailbreaker77 under Transformers Masterpiece
95764 Hasbro Australia has added the Hasbro Masterpiece Bluestreak to their website, and with it, some official images of the release including a look at the box. The box is the now-standard "large" Hasbro boxes, which suggests Bluestreak will be packaged in robot mode and there may be some "dead space" around the edge of the figure.

Check out the images attached to this post.

(For those keeping track, Masterpiece Star Saber has also gone up for order. However, his box is the same as the Japanese release one, since he is being imported from that region for the Australian market.)

Masterpiece Star Saber Tops Japanese Sales Charts

Posted on 03-27-2015 at 04:56 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
tfmp24 Here is an interesting nugget of news we thought to share with you. Japanese retailer Toynes produces a weekly "top 5" of best selling items, and for the week of March 16 to March 22, the toy topping the charts is Masterpiece Star Saber - and considering that he only came out on 21 March unlike the rest of the chart, this is really impressive.

Of course, it is hard to judge if this surge was down to preorders, or whether this was purely in-store purchases, but in either case, it paints a very healthy picture for Masterpiece Star Saber's sales, and - dare we say - portends well for other fan-favorites getting the Masterpiece treatment down the line.

Takara Reveals MP-18B Bluestreak!

Posted on 03-25-2015 at 11:25 PM by Matty under Transformers Masterpiece
4904810827825 It's happening! TakaraTomyMall has just revealed a Masterpiece figure that will surely send fans into a frenzy: MP-18B Bluestreak! That's right, it's a blue Bluestreak! This deco is based on the Diaclone figure and has been a color scheme desperately wanted by the fanbase.

According to the web page, it looks like this will be a limited release of about 2,000 and available in Japan, likely as a web or other type of exclusive, so it may be one of the more difficult pieces to obtain.
