Masterpiece Tigertrack MP-12T - In-Hand Photos

Posted on 05-24-2013 at 11:43 PM by Superquad7 under Transformers Masterpiece
Masterpiece-Tigertrack-01
Hot on the trail of our last front page update on this figure, an eBay auction surfaced with in-hand photos of the upcoming Masterpiece MP-12T figure, Tigertrack! While this auction does not show any robot mode photos, it does allow us to get a closer look at the beautiful, yellow Lamborghini Countach alt mode. Tigertrack is a redeco of the Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor figure.

For those that may not know, this figure is a homage to not one, but two previous toys. The more obvious homage is to the mail-order Figure King exclusive Generation One Tigertrack that came out in early 2003. Also, this figure homages the Diaclone line, particularly the Diaclone New Yellow Countach LP500S figure (which is also obviously homaged by the 2003 G1 figure).

Several of our sponsors have pre-orders for this figure, and if the recent Masterpiece figures are any indication of availability, you may want to secure yours today!

Also, the member says that she has some additional photos of Tigertrack. I've been through a few pages now, and I can't find 'em. If someone wants to try to go through them, and mirror the additional images here, I can give that person a News Credit as well.

I don't have any MP figures...very tempted to change that.

Seeing this just makes me wish for a Masterpiece Sunstreaker...

Looks great. Tigertrack is the best choice out of all the other Sideswipe repaints, as I knew he would be. And not because he kinda looks like Sunstreaker in vehicle mode, the yellow just looks very nice on the Lamborghini.
Mr.Deflok
Getting this purely for the possibility of never getting an MP Sunstreaker.

Plus the mold is amazing so why not?
opt1musaber
Looks ok.
Furyan
Looks a little plain compared to the other lambos. PO still locked in though.
SoundBlaster7
Robot mode pics please! I actually prefer this guy over Red Alert. Yellow looks great on this mold.
Shark Jumper
I wish the character had stripes or something to not look like Sideswipe wearing his brother's colors, even if that was the original character's design.
motorthing
Getting ..........just in case Sunny doesn't make it.
Star Saber
Hm interesting, the in-hand photos still don't show him with the Autobot symbol on his hood. I hope we don't have to put a sticker on ourselves!

There very well may be some robot mode photos:

I'm guessing since neither of the original toys had an Autobot faction symbol and that we've not seen it in photos yet, chances are they're won't be one. I'm pretty happy about that myself, though.

Totally agree! Bright canary yellow on a Lambo just looks so freaking good.

Same here. It could be at least a year's wait for an MP Sunstreaker, too. No one knows if or when Takara will ever make an MP Sunstreaker, so this fella is going to do fine as a fill-in for me.

And I like that as it makes him look even MORE like Sunstreaker.
LSyd
i wasn't going to get him but seeing these changes my mind, he's just too sexy. plus if we don't get Sunstreaker he'll be the next best thing, maybe with some 3rd party parts.

Finally, proper pics.

Looking really forward to getting this.


I am surprised by how bright the yellow is. Picked up the diaclone reissue for comparison and that yellow doesn't look as bright as this MP.

But the original did have the faction symbol!

I hope they use the ehobby box as a basis for MP Tigertrack's box. I always loved those mail away boxes.
CrockAlley
Now for Clamp Down and Deep Cover.

But seriously, I'm glad I pre-ordered this. I love these neo-G1 e-Hobby guys. If you count them, the Sideswipe mold has more characters than the Prowl mold. The best exclusive I can imagine with the Prowl mold is "toy colors" Bluestreak.

Diaclone yellow goodness.
Optimus Bruce
Looks to me as if there is an Autobot symbol in place on the box shot :



But are those two little Autobot stickers in this shot to the left of the pile drivers ...

^ I was just going to post this. I think we get stickers with this release!
Mr.Deflok
This mean release is imminent?

My thoughts exactly... Every other MP has been delayed

Maybe a third party company will make a Sunstreaker head?

Let this Yellow Lambor be an opening ceremony for you to start collecting MP series,cheers.

It'll need more than a head to become Sunstreaker.
Stepper
In the pics as per above,there are pile drivers,so this set include pile drivers as well.

Why? That would make as much sense as giving it a Bumblebee head.

Gah I hate stickers...oh well some things you just gotta live with...
Stepper
With stickers,that will be a better options for collectors to paste or not to paste the autobot logo onto the car.
opt1musaber
Yep, I agree. I think having no insignia differentiates, as it needs it, to Sideswipe that little bit more. Having stickers is a nice option and for once I'd prefer it that way.
Stepper
To each his own,for me,i seriously do not like the autobot insignia on the Sideswipe,they could have give us stickers instead.

This is soooo tempting but after forking out for Nemesis Prime it's an expense I could do without....

When is the actual release date?

Either that's the wrong link, the person hasn't put them up yet, or they are set to private and only friends etc can see them. I went through all 52 pages and only thing there were Blythe and some DC figures. No pics of any transformer whatsoever. So the chase goes on.

lol you caved in on mp10b in the end

Looks good but pass.

Looks better than both Swipe and Red Alert, IMO. I dunno why, the yellow really works for this mold.

Yellow will work with pretty much any sports car.
Ejector369
I sure do hope this means we'll get a Hasbro release of MP Sideswipe after Soundwave and Acid Storm...

Why? Because of this figure's upcoming release, TakaraTOMY may still have the Lamborghini licencing.

He was never an eHOBBY exclusive, but a Figure King exclusive.

The new one might be available on eHOBBY as the Tokyo Toy Show exclusives end up on there.

Love it.

I was hoping to see black tiger stripes painted on this instead of a plain yellow lamborghini, but oh well. That was a pipe dream, anyways.

It might, or it might be that Takara always had the right to release a certain number of Tigertrack figures and that the loss of the license only stops them from producing additional figures after their first run.
