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?

Sound off after the jump and let us know what you think!

Posted on 09-30-2014 at 04:36 PM by Tony_Bacala under Transformers Masterpiece
Masterpiece-Wheeljack-MP20-006 TFW2005 is happy to share a full high res gallery of the latest Masterpiece figure - MP20 Wheeljack! MP-20 is a faithful modern interpretation of G1 Wheeljack, complete with his Lancia Stratos Turbo vehicle mode and appropriate racing decals on top of an Italian themed red, green and white paint job. He stands in line with the Datsun brothers and Sideswipe, adding to the roster of re-imagined G1 / Diaclone era cars and has similar transformation notes with his G1 counterpart - but of course updated with modern, more complicated engineering.

Overall he's a great piece, head on over to the gallery and check it out for yourselves! Comparison shots with previous versions and the exclusive coin and Hypnosis Device come from fellow 2005 Admin Sol Fury!

Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack - Hidden Face Reveal?

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!
