|06.17.2012 – Akiba based TYPE97 reports on yesterday’s coverage at the International Tokyo Show which features Takara Tomy as one of its major exhibitors who revealed MP-12 Sideswipe (Lambor) where we made a review tribute parody of the vintage reissue edition.
Then they also revealed the next two Masterpiece Edition will be released early 2013 with MP-13 Soundwave (Saundowēbu) and MP-14 Red Alert (Arāto) a retooled version on MP-12 Sideswipe (Lambor) with a light bar attachment on top of the Lamborghini “New Countach LPS500S.”
These images of the upcoming three Masterpiece figures are a definitely a tease that Takara Tomy is moving forward in continuing on releasing iconic Generation One characters since coming out with MP-10 Convoy (Optimus Prime) in 2011.
These next Masterpiece Editions will surely be to scale with Convoy and we can’t wait to see more G1 characters reproduced in this toy line…
MP-12 Lambor (Sideswipe) will be released on October 10, 2012 at 5,800 Yen and the next two following figures won’t be out until early 2013. We’ll surely keep you updated on the international news and local sightings!
