in Dark of the Moon, Dark of the Moon, Decepticon, News

According to fan site Transformers Asia two Human Alliance figures will see a re-release as Asia exclusives (excluding Japan). Barricade was fairly easy to find back in the day, but fans may be most interested in the other release: Soundwave!

Toy News: Masterpiece MP-23 "Exhaust" revealed

in Decepticon, Masterpiece, News

Online retailer Tag Hobby has revealed an image of an upcoming Masterpiece figure: Exhaust! This new character is a homage to the Diaclone "Marlboro" Wheeljack, one of the most legendary "pre-G1" figures out there. The figure will feature a new head sculpt and an "Immobilizer" accessory. I think it looks great and it's wonderful to see this legendary figure get a nod in the Masterpiece line.
