Official Images of Upcoming Masterpieces - Soundblaster and Ratbat Announced

Masterpiece-Soundblaster-Ratbat
The Masterpiece line marches on, as official images emerge through preorder solicitations from site sponsor TFSource. We get to see what appears to be the final deco of the previously confirmed G2 Sideswipe, sporting red windshields and the additional weapon add-ons. The G2 Autobot symbol adorns his hood/chest. Also, if you look closely, there is one image with the G2 decoed spoiler and one image without. Could this mean that this figure will include a label sheet? Feel free to speculate!

The next image is two new figure, albeit one is a redeco of an existing figure - Masterpiece Soundblaster and Ratbat! While Soundblaster is a redeco of the Masterpiece Soundwave mold, Ratbat is a new mold entirely!

You can place your preorders with TFSource here for G2 Sideswipe and here for Soundblaster and Ratbat!

And away we go!

SS looks sexy as hell, have to wonder if I'd apply the G2 labels (probably not)

Soundblaster looks amazing as expected. Ratbat looks insane. Looks like it's a must buy.

Just waiting for the Hasbro crowd to start moaning that Ratbat wasn't included in their boxset.
RobotoChan
Fantastic - my wallet is weeping

I Knew Soundblaster would be coming along soon... I cannot wait.
Coltello
If anyone wants to get rid of their MP Ratbat and keep their Soundblaster let me know!
Mr.Deflok
Green stickers for SS? I'm so happy... Cannot wait. Yes!

Don't care about Soundblaster as I have a Talk MP13 plus all his tapes.
Ejector369
I wonder if MP Soundblaster with Ratbat means we'll be getting MP versions of Slugfest, Overkill, Squawktalk, and Beastbox?
The_Black_Sheep
I can't see myself buying an MP SoundBlaster solely for Ratbat, That's for sure...
stevej
Aww, I only want Ratbat!
deathsheadII
soundblaster!!! yes!!!
Superquad7
Predicted but welcomed!
Hot Shot.
Dat Ratbat. If only he wasn't bundled with Soundblaster...

I'll probably get G2 Sideswipe, though.
soymonk
Damnit. I have to buy Soundblaster just to get Ratbat?
Shatterpoint
Cannot wait for G2 'Swipe.
TCracker
these all will be mine
Superquad7
I'm probably one of the only ones not getting G2 Sideswipe.
Timothy.R
the with success of soundwave over here.. i wonder if hasbro would bring soundblaster to the US.

ratbat does look awesome.
petes2177
Ratbat shall be mine!!
Acteon
That Ratbat is lovely. I can't justify spending more MP money just to get a tape, but I can drool for free. Looking forward to some hi-res images.

I fear I can...

Duuuuuuude. Fingers crossed they somehow get Ratbat out by himself at some point...

Damn right, dude! It was definitely too obvious for Takara to avoid. But I will be buying with no hesitation! Now we just need Billy/Twincast!!!
motorthing
Sides......yes. SB........maybe.

Watch Ratbat become as valuable or more so than the whole of the rest of the tapes combined.

Sneaky.
ZacWilliam
Sideswipe was preordered even before pics, and happily remains so.

Like almost everyone else I KNEW Ratbat would be coming with Soundblaster. Drat it all. I really want him but $150 is probably out of my price range for just Ratbat.


-ZacWilliam, Soundblaster is probably the most expensive mostly unwanted accessory ever...
Deruji
I was wavering if I should get the TRU Soundwave as a second one, this just made that decision so much easier
Fort Max
I like everything I see there.

I think it's way too easy for them not to. Personally, not impressed with soundblaster but think g2 sideswipe looks awesome. Just wondering about the lack of g2 green in th deco...
bradforj
So who here is hoping for a Linkin Park version of MP Soundwave as the next deco?

*crickets*
Thundercracker
This is where the dark blue shading on MP SW is sort of unfortunate-he ends up looking pretty much exactly like Soundblaster.

I think there's going to be hundreds of people saying that.

Shrewd and cunning move Takara.
BLOODRAGED189
Badass!
agentcastle
obviously this is being released and i bet it'd look great next to MP-10b.... and although I'd love to drop another buck-fiddy+ ive gotta draw the line somewhere... and that arbitrary line is crap-ass TF rebirth... ill take that ratbat though!

Nope, I have fond memories of my G2 Sideswipe as a kid, but it doens't have a place on my current MP shelf. So Imma skip him also.

However I will be getting the Soundblaster set just to complete the '86 movie team of cassettes. Soundblaster himself is going to get sold off, I just need that MP Ratbat
Cyclonus79
Man. Ray Charles could of seen this one coming. SB+ Ratbat = WIN.
Electro Rush
G2 Sideswipe looks very desirable. Soundblaster not as much but I'd like more tapes down the line.

Though to be fair, being a mailman is a far better use of his time than singing in that band
Robogeek28
Completely expected and completely bought.


This will be our first Japanese Headmasters series figure as well.
Soundwave12
very expected damn it's gonna be hard to keep my wallet shut for soundblaster :s :s
MetalicGrunt
RATBAT!!!!hopefully like others have said, ratbat will be available in a 2 pack at some time hopefully with Overkill
Robogeek28
We REALLY need a Blaster at this point.
PandaGash
I'm not bothered about Ratbat but Soundblaster looks pretty sweet - can't wait to be able to pick one up cheap, when you guys who just want the new cassette sell him on!
Impactor1106
Want that Ratbat!!!!!
OMEGAPRIME1983
Son of a.. ok, fine, I'll buy Soundblaster, too...
deathsheadII
anyone else sort of wish they had gone with the original toy and given sb a red chest? and not purple

Five new cassette toolings? That's insane! We only got three the first time around.

Sure, they don't have to do any engineering or mold changes for Soundblaster, but they probably figure they won't make as many sales. My prediction for the next pair of MP cassette packs?

Overkill/Enemy and Slugfest/Wingthing.
iconscons
If anyone is willing to split the cost, I'll take ratbat, you take soundblaster let me know through a private message.
Skyclaw
Awesome!

SS looks cool but not into G2 stuff or homage

Soundblaster is amazing and loving Ratbat, but wheres Slugfest and Overkill???
GaussGunner
PERFECT!!! Want Soundblaster!! Next need to make Twincast!
puma
Haha. Can't wait to see $100+ Ratbats on eBay.

G2 Sideswipe was already ordered. Keeping it for sure. Will probably get Soundblaster. -sigh- Thankfully next year is a movie toy year.
zappatton2
Yeah, I'm gonna buy this. Plus, I've never transformed Soundwave (he's stuck in a pose I don't want to lose), so Soundblaster for me will be my "fer fiddlin'" figure. Now I hope we do get both Megs and Galvatron, and enough Decepticons from both S1+2 and S3+ so I can do a couple of Deceptisplays.
Thundershot
I had a feeling this would be the case.

Hopefully we get a Hasbro Soundblaster that includes Ratbat, Enemy, Howlback, Garboil, and Wingthing. That would be awesome.
