Been a while since I've been here, but I feel the need to update this thread with the last couple years releases in the awesome Transformers Masterpiece series:
Early 2011 (Japan release, US release late 2011) - MP-9 Hot Rod/ Rodimus Prime:
2011 (Japan release, US release 2012)- MP-10 Optimus Prime, rescaled and resculpted:
Late 2011 (Japan release, Released in US in 2012 as Thundercracker color scheme) - MP-11 Starscream, resculpted with improved leg transformation:
2012 (Japan release) - MP-12 Sideswipe (AKA: Lambor)
Coming soon, scheduled end of 2012 (Japan release) - MP-13 Soundwave w/ Laserbeak, other cassette minions released in early 2013:
Great stuff, eh? Good to see the TF toy line continuing on with quality in Japan, regardless of what we see happening with the movie toys in the US.
