Masterpiece 13 Teaser and Arms Micron Breakdown, Starscream, Vehicon and Knockout Pics

2005 Board member Gaokaiser has shared with us some new catalog scans from courtesy of Japanese BBS. In the scans we have our first looks at AM-12 Breakdown in color with his Micron (a rhino that turns into one of his hammers!) AM-14 Vehicon with Micron, AM-07 Voyager Starscream with Micron and AM-13 Knockout with micron. Also among these pictures is a prototype of MP-12 Sideswipe with a size comparison to MP-10.

Last but certainly not least is a silhouette teaser of MP-13! Popular vote in the thread has been going to Soundwave. But others have speculated Sunstreaker and Shockwave.

What do you think? Check out the images after the break and join in on the speculation!

Images for Masterpiece 13 Teaser and Arms Micron Breakdown, Starscream, Vehicon and Knockout Pics

Are you kidding? It looks even more monochrome than the Hasbro one.

Oh, and Starscream is hilariously mistransformed. Breakdown's looking pretty awesome, though...so long as all that gray plastic is confined to the unpainted AM version.

I wonder if the Takara Jet Vehicon has that particular arms micron too. If it doesn't I'm gonna struggle to get an accurate looking weapon for it!
masishadow
What does that say about MP-13?
Fartini
Knockout looks pretty sweet if that is his actual paintjob.
jbz
Love that Breakdown.

Looks like it's suggesting MP-12 is gonna be a midget compared to Optimus. MP-13? Sort of looks like it could be Soundwave, but maybe that's just me wishing

yeah, much better than the Hasbro one, but still need to paint the rims
General Tekno
Wow, Breakdown looks basically perfect there. Do we know when he's due out in the US yet?
Megabattimus
MP-13 looks like Shockwave to me.

Anyways, Breakdown and Knockout's Microns look cool. Glad I have two of Arms Micron Vehicons on preorder.

That's the easy part, they pop right out. The stripes, inside shoulder detailing, and rear end are the hard parts. That candy red is gonna be sweet to detail over though. I may get this sucker now. Breakdown has been on preorder for months since I don't know Hasbros release date for it.
TCracker
Breakdown is pure sex. Must have him. MP13? Hehehehehe...looks like what I think he is.

Probably hidden or photoshopped out to conceal the surprise.

You forgot to mention the other bits they photoshopped to mislead us into thinking it's someone other than Shockwave.
Steroid Prime
Knockout looks better but he has a big wart on the middle of his chest.

WTH

Thanks for the pics! Wow! Knockout seems promising.......

Also, if MP12 is that size, hopefully the price of masterpiece figures will drop and masterpieces will be produced faster!

BTW, what class size do you think MP12 is? Is it voyager?
TCracker
Probably between a voyager and a deluxe judging from the comparative pic.

Size will drop 1/3 price will drop 25%.

We loose Takara wins.

And on size class, height was already discussed. Pricing, Takara don't go by size class, they go by whatever they think they can charge.

Although i'm curious to see how Hasbro might price such a thing.......30th anniversary on the Horizon and all that.
JouetCOM
Well, i'm somewhat fine with takara/hasbro reducing the size of masterpiece figures but i hope they will still be worthy of the 'masterpiece' title.......

Sometime after Skyquakes wave. Current speculation just guesses Wave 4 voyagers. Probably one to a case.

Probably still about 6 months out at the earliest if time between waves so far is anything to go by.

This might actually be the only Takara Prime figure I go after if only because I have very little faith that we'll see a Hasbro Voyager Breakdown this year.

Sorry to nitpick, but one slight misstatement, people get the wrong end of the stick, and then there's 'Wahhhhhhhhh'.
Dirge121
Oh yeah, Dreadwing. Blegh, its 4am, they're the same mold.
Cal
MP-13 is so ambiguous, it's anyone's guess. For all we know, it could be Sunstreaker to complement his brother.
OptimusTimelord
MP-13 silhouette looks like a back shot of Soundwave (without the shoulder cannon) to me. Check out the arms/hands...
DPrime
Sideswipe's scale looks good to me. Almost certainly picking this up now.

Silhouette... Can't tell who it is! I'm just going to go with Soundwave for now. I don't really see Jazz in there, but who knows. They sure aren't making it obvious...

Knockout looks terrific. I think I will be buying that.
PoweredConvoy
Sideswipe is to scale to MP-10 Optimus in robot mode like I had predicted.
X-Arachnis
that head... Shockwave, is that you!?!
Dolza_Khyron
yea loving the japanese ones with the little minicon guys... good thing they're being sold separately too!
miscreant
So presuming MP13 is Soundwave........how do they do the tapes?

Lazerbeak and ...the blue one with Soundwave?

Buzzsaw, and the red one with Soundblaster? And maybe kick in Ravage as an incentive to buy the mold again?
stevej
MP-12 size looks about perfect. I'd have taken him a cm shorter but I'm definitely glad he's no bigger than that!

Now to see if he has an interior etc. If the Alternity line could manage that then the MP line should be able to, especially with the slightly larger looking figures.

Now bring on MP-13 and a more prolific release schedule with these guys!!

Well, the hose and the one eye getting photoshopped out kind of go without saying.

Hm, yeah that could be where the gun arm goes. Good call.
Trailbreaker77
Awesome MP-13 does look like Soundwave.
Wingnut
Loving the Vehicon's Arms Micron! Now I have to get one! XD
skiss
Well damn, gotta admit soundwave would not of been a character I would guess is being released. Really cool to hear it though. The MP line is starting to kick some major ass.
MechaV
Holy CRAP dat Breakdown.

Man I'm glad I preordered the Arms Micron version.

That HAMMER.
Axelle
That Breakdown is absolutely gorgeous. And the hammer Micron~ Shame about Knock Out. It'd be an improvement over the Hasbro version if it weren't for that ugly port on his chest. And glad to see the Vehicon looks just as awesome as ever(still have him pre-ordered in case I can't find one stateside).
Fort Max
Sideswipe looks almost obscenely accurate to the line art that we saw previously

Looking forward to seeing more of him at Tokyo toy show.

The shilouette, no idea, I'll wait before I start leaping up and down.

The arms micron stuff looks pretty poor again, the sole exception being Breakdown and only because we have yet to even see a Hasbro version of him.
Cyber-Scream
Breakdown and Knock Out look glorious.
Billzilla
Regarding the height of Sideswipe, this does put him at taller than his classics incarnation but, happily, still a tad shorter than iGear Ironhide/Ratchet judging from the photo showing their Van Bros mold with MP-10.

Really glad to hear there will be more to see in less than a month.
Xaddion
I hope the next MP is Soundwave or Shockwave. I'll be super pissed if it's already a Sideswipe repaint.
Soundwinder
I wish Knockout wasn't cut off, I'd like a better look at his crab Micron.

The first thing I thought of with the silhouette was Soundwave. Reeeeeeeeeeally hopeful, and ideally he'll be compatible with G1 cassettes. And include MP cassettes. And a pony.

What is Vehicon's Micron supposed to be? Just looks like Vehicon's gun... with legs.
The_Black_Sheep
Um, Why would TakTom be teasing us with MP-13 when MP-12 hasn't even seen the light of day yet? What the...

Negative - this is MP, not Classics!
Shatterpoint
Breakdown looks great.

And MP-12 is gonna be quite small, just barely half the size of MP-10.

Looks likw MP-13 is gonna be Soundwave!
TigerBlade
So MP12 is looking Alternator(ish) sized. The head comes upto the bottom of his silver/white stripe. I can live with that.

I dunno why but all I can see is Prowl in that silhouette......

Well at least Takara have a recent license agreement with Nissan, unlike Porsche.
