Amazon Japan has first images of upcoming Transformer. ...
It seems like it's been a long time coming - after the teaser announcement a few weeks ago - but Takara Tomy has finally lifted the lid (or should that be ejected the cassette?) on the upcoming Transformers Masterpiece figure: MP-13 Soundwave.
Always a popular 'bot, fans have been asking for a Masterpiece version of Soundwave for some time and the new model certainly looks like it won't disappoint. Although only a prototype for now, it's clear to see MP-13 is an update of the original generation one Soundwave, who turned into a now rather defunct cassette player.
An added bonus is the inclusion of Soundwave's faithful companion Laserbeak, who transforms into a cassette that fits inside Soundwave's chest. What's more, lucky Japanese buyers who purchase the product from Amazon receive exclusive replica Energon cubes.
Amazon continues its Transformers updates with news that pre-orders of MP-12 Lambor/Sideswipe comes with two chrome pile drivers, which can be fitted to his arms instead of hands. Here's hoping that any Western releaes of MP-12 and 13 also come with similar pre-orders.
