Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber - New Box Image

Posted on 03-05-2015 at 08:34 AM by Matty under Transformers Masterpiece
B_VLYUAUcAAsZ6f The wait is almost over everyone. Masterpiece Star Saber will begin shipping overseas on March 21, arriving shortly after to North American retailers. To hold us over until then, Star Saber designer Hisashi Yuki continues to drop gems for us on his Twitter page.

This morning we have our very first image of Stab Saber's box, which Hisashi Yuki mentions will be the same size as Masterpiece Ultra Magnus packaging. Interesting to note there does not appear to be any call out to this release being the 30th Anniversary fan voted Masterpiece, at least from what we can see here. The packaging will however fit right into line with the other Generation 1 Masterpiece released figures to this point continuing a consistent packaging theme.

Stay tuned for more images and news as we inch closer to the release date!

New Masterpieces and MP Tracks NOT MP-25?

Posted on 03-04-2015 at 07:54 AM by Tony_Bacala under Transformers Masterpiece
mp-25_1425390597 According to the earlier report from Australian Toy Fair via Ozformers, Masterpiece Tracks is being reported as NOT MP-25. Where he falls and who else is in line is not known at the moment. The full wording for the initial info was:

Tracks (not MP25), MP25 in Sept (I can't reveal name before TakaraTomy), and two new "sports cars" for OCT & NOV.

It's worth noting that this runs contra to the previous Japanese hobby magazines which were printed with Tracks clearly identified as MP-25.

Read on to discuss and check back for updates later today!

Masterpiece Star Saber In-Hand

Posted on 03-03-2015 at 05:47 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
3f212d7fjw1epsyfe2uwsj20xc18gdok The appointed hour draws near when Masterpiece Star Saber will be released in Japan - and via Oldcasper on Weibo and fengqiaoken on ACtoys, we have a look at the Cybertron 5th Commander in-hand.

Hailing from the 1989 show, Transformers Victory, Star Saber was one of a series of Japan-only Cybertron faction commanders. Much like his predecessor Ginrai / Powermaster Optimus Prime, he consists of a small pilot figure, a Brainmaster, which merges with a smaller jet vehicle to form a robot, which then in turn merges with the larger booster engine to form the full-scale Star Saber.

Masterpiece Star Saber is looking to be every bit the large-scale release to celebrate the latter years of the Japanese Generation 1 series. It is an amazing looking release which seems to be set to impress Masterpiece Transformers fans everywhere. Check out the new images attached to this post.

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.

Check out the pictures after the jump and join the discussion!

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?

MP-22 Masterpiece Ultra Magnus High Res Gallery

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. In each mode though, he looks like he should, a beefed up hybrid of the G1 toy and cartoon. We'll leave the reviews and feedback to the fans.

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!

For some supah cleah high res images though, check out our full gallery here: TFW2005's MP-22 Ultra Magnus High Resolution Gallery.

We've attached some key shots after the break, read on to check em and discuss on the forums!
