Images have appeared online via several Facebook groups showing off what appears to be a Masterpiece version of Shouki - the leader of the Trainbots from the "Headmasters" cartoon series. Along with his fellow Trainbots, he could form part of the Combiner, Raiden. This group of G1 toys was only released in Japan and thus far the entire group has not yet been updated outside of a Million Publishing exclusive of Shouki as a Classics Astrotrain redeco.
Takara Tomy Mall has posted its listing for the upcoming Masterpiece Nightbird Shadow! Nightbird Shadow is a redeco and retool of the Masterpiece Arcee figure based on the character who was first introduced in the G1 episode "Enter the Nightbird" (aka "The Shadow of Nightbird" in Japan).
There has been much information released in the past couple of weeks about Masterpiece Skids and his redeco/retool Reboost. For those who have been curious about how Masterpiece Skids measures up against his G1 counterpart, Takara Tomy has your back! Earlier today the @TF_Pr Twitter account posted images of the original and upcoming Skids figures side by side in both modes! You can see the photos below and in the embedded Tweet.
After the reveal of Masterpiece Skids and Reboost pre-orders have gone up at BWTF sponsor BigBadToyStore and affiliate site Entertainment Earth! In addition BigBadToyStore has posted a bunch of new images for each figure (in addition to those on Takara Tomy Mall!). Skids and Reboost are $89.99 each and due to ship in December 2021. Follow the links below to pre-order your figures and help support BWTF!
@digitamin on Twitter has posted some intriguing images which appear to be the Takara Tomy promotional images of the upcoming Masterpiece Skids and its retool/redeco! Keep in mind this is not an official reveal but these photos are consistent with promotional photos released by Takara Tomy in the past. When official word is released you can bet BWTF will post about it!
With new versions of Masterpiece Starscream and Thundercracker on the way, Takara Tomy has followed up by announcing the upcoming release of Masterpiece 2.0 Skywarp!
Via The Official Honda Japan Twitter Page we now have our first look at the upcoming Masterpiece Skids figure! This figure was first revealed back in late December/early January by Takara Tomy but little has been heard since. Well it looks like the folks at Takara Tomy have been super busy, creating what looks like an awesome addition to everyone's MP collection! Check out the images below. I have also embedded the original Tweet for reference.
Via the Official Transformers Facebook page we now have our first look at MPM-12 Optimus Prime! This highly detailed figure is based on the character's appearance in the Bumblebee film from 2018.
