I LOVE how they've retooled some parts to reflect the differences in the G1 animation models and I expect there'll be a few changes for Smokescreen as well.

I recently bought a 2nd Sideswipe,

He sure does! Takara are really on a roll.

I think the rise of the 3rd parties has lit a fire under their ass and they're taking it to them in the best possible [sign in to see URL] making stuff that people want.

There are rumors that licenses for Mirage & Hound may have been acquired and Sunstreaker is possibly still coming too as they already have a deal with Lamborghini.

Awesome news, though I think I'm too late to the party. Shockwave brings back great memories...

The Shockwave I posted a pic of is a 3rd party release,

I got mine for £30 cheaper than MP Soundwave and the build quality is actually better, it's an amazing debut release for Fans Toys.

Congrats Jun!

I got my tapes yesterday and think they're great.

The design of the Ravage and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw molds in particular are for me the greatest achievements in the Masterpiece line so far as they've incorporated the weapons without partsforming yet still managed to keep the tape mode the same size as the originals.

Will you get Soundblaster if he comes with Ratbat?

Yeah, I think I love the tapes more than any other transformers I've owned in the Masterpiece line.

Soundblaster & ratbat will be a tough choice, since its differences to soundwave will be minimal.

But [sign in to see URL], I may just get them if they release it soon enough & not take forever.

It's one of those situations where Takara have their customers exactly where they want us.

Without something like an exclusive tape Soundblaster probably wouldn't sell very well so they'll throw Ratbat in and ensure that the production run sells out.

I don't particularly want Soundblaster but if it comes down to it being the only way to get Ratbat then I'll bite.

Smokescreen is revealed,
[sign in to see URL]

The level of retooling that Takara have done across the 3 variants really shows how they've stepped up the level of accuracy in this line and they're being rewarded with incredibly good [sign in to see URL] and Streak didn't last long and Smokey is going pretty quickly too which can only bode well for the future of licensed Autobot cars in the Masterpiece line.

Outside of Autobot cars some news on MP20 is likely to come out of the Tokyo Toy Show and the smart money is on it being one of the following,

Galvatron
Ultra Magnus
Megatron V2
