In the past few months Takara has been giving us news and releasing Masterpiece toys to us. November I got Sideswipe. December I got Red Alert. January (next week) I'm getting Soundwave with Laserbeak. I can't tell you how excited I am for him! I've been trying so hard to avoid the pics and videos that are out there. I caught a pic of him ejecting his own minions! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!! Absolutely insane! As of right now I think he's going to be the best Masterpiece ever made!
In March we have Rumble/Ravage and Frenzy/Buzzsaw combo's. We will get the original's of the cassette's by the middle of this year. My display case of all the MP's is going to be full. How to set them up....
Newly announced is Prowl and Smokescreen. A day later we were told that Tigertrack is on the list. He's basically going to be the same mold as Sideswipe but in Yellow. This is where I'm a bit disappointed. Why not Sunstreaker? You could use the same mold, make him yellow, add a bigger spoiler, change the head, add a few more colored detail, and poof..... Sunstreaker has been born! You already have 3/4 of the mold Takara!
Anyways, overall I'm happy with the selection. Just please no more Optimus Prime Masterpiece's!! What we really need is a redo of Ultra Magnus. Now we're talking!
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 1000+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
