MP-23 Exhaust Deco Update

Posted on 01-16-2015 at 12:43 AM by Jacer under Transformers Masterpiece
10622938_821125474620061_2605050824367973520_n After a bit of concern of release of MP-23 Exhaust in North America we finally have an update on the figure. Back in November we reported about Exhaust's paint job that conflicted with Marlboro & Phillip Morris USA's trademark. Takara has now updated the deco with a slightly different design on the hood to not clash with the trademark.

Rumor - Next US Masterpiece Release: Bluestreak?

Posted on 01-14-2015 at 10:32 AM by Mechafire under Transformers Masterpiece
IMG_20150113_0001 TFW2005 boards member Icespark has provided us with a computer listing from Toys 'R' Us about what is presumably the next US Masterpiece release - Bluestreak! Bluestreak will be retailing for $59.99. Unfortunately, we have no photos of what he will look like just yet, or if he will have any differences from his Japanese counterpart.

Stay tuned to TFW as we bring you the latest Transformers news leading up to Toy Fair!

Rumor - Year of the Goat Soundwave to cost $190?

Posted on 01-13-2015 at 05:39 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
Goat-Soundwave-Tapdeck_1413655134 Call this a rumor for now, but we have received a report from TFW2005 member Deceptigtar that the upcoming Year of the Goat special edition Soundwave will cost $190 when it is released at Toys R Us.

Yes, $190.

This information is based on Deceptigtar taking a scan of the UPC of a sample of the Year of the Goat Soundwave which a fellow collector already owned, and scanning it in a Toys R Us store.

If you like to collect the Chinese New Year special editions, you may wish to put aside a little extra Transformers money for this one - it sounds as though it will be a bank-breaker - or is this price a deal-breaker?

Posted on 01-12-2015 at 02:06 PM by Tony_Bacala under Transformers Masterpiece
MP22-Ultra-Magnus-014 MP-22 Ultra Magnus dropped late last year and we here at TFW2005 have a full high res gallery of him ready for you today! He is a massive figure, standing tall among his Masterpiece brothers. He doesn't transform like previous versions, instead keeping the cab and trailer connected.

This sponsored gallery is coming courtesy of site sponsor TFSource, so we'd like to thank them for providing the figure to shoot! You can grab MP-22 Ultra Magnus from them right now; they are in stock and shipping!

The recently released Bumble is also present, joining the rest of the Cybertrons in the lineup as they all speed alongside each other.
