Re: Transformers - \"Masterpiece Edition\" Thread

Dang looks like customs here arent letting through some Megatrons... I'd hate to have to spend so much only too have it be destroyed. Some are and some arent getting though
I might have to find one locally.

New Masterpiece Starscream

This was just posted at TFW2005 It has been confirmed by a reliable source but I won't beleive it for sure until we hear from Hasbro. I really like the colors on this one compared to the Takara release.

Edit: Sorry about making the new post. I added it to the Masterpiece edition post. Please delete.

Re: New Masterpiece Starscream

It's possible this will happen. When it was first released in Japan there were rumors of it being released in the States but painted in original colors. We'll see I guess.

Cool! I will pick this up and consider my Takara one as Thundercracker after a few mods of course.

BTW, does anyone know the ETA for Skywarp? I finally bought Megatron and am ready for another MP fix.

Yes!! I've been waiting for this to happen. I held out on the first version because I couldn't stand the color scheme. Now i'll have my favorite TF in Masterpiece from.

I hope that Starscream is true as I have been waiting on buying this figure until he was done in the right colours.

Looks like my wish has come true!

BBTS says the ETA on Skywarp is September, but knowing Takara you can expect a delay of a month or two. Though I think Megatron was on time. *shrugs*

TW2005 says the source is always right so I believe it. This is the Starscream I held out for. Looks fantastic!

I have seen a few customs out there lately that look really great. I hope they change it. I am very impressed with the Masterpiece line. I am picking up Megatron in the next few weeks.

Re: Transformers - \"Masterpiece Edition\" Thread

I think this is the ultimate line for Transformers fans. I've only ever purchased Starscream so far and while I think he's beautiful, I had a heck of a time transforming him. He's been sitting on a shelf for a while now and I still don't think he's completely done. I was also disappointed to find out after I transformed him that two of his fingers were missing.

If I had a dream Masterpiece figure, it would be a movie accurate version of Galvatron.

Has anyone noticed the price of Megatron going up lately?

Any suggestions for a reliable place to pick him up now?

Just saw that BBTS has Megatron restock preorder up for October. Price isn't too bad either at 109$

Orange plugged but the plug is easy to remove.

they also have the justitoys accessory kit for Megatron so you can get the transformable stock and silencer, just like the original. Is anyone going to get that?

Yup, I ordered it through BBTS. Gotta have the kit for it to truly be a masterpiece version of Megatron!

So will this be in the vein of the 20th anniversary prime cuz we really haven't had MP here yet.....or is this Hasbro's first foray into MP?

Great and I just paid over a hundred buck for the MP Starscream. That's it, I'm holding out for the Walmart exclusive Megatron.

Re: Transformers - \"Masterpiece Edition\" Thread

So question: is the Megatron coming out in the US? I am looking to buy the ultimate version of Megatron. Should I go with the MP-05 one from Japan or is there one coming out in a similar style to last years anniversary optimus?

Re: Transformers - \"Masterpiece Edition\" Thread

I would get the MP-05. The fact he is a Toy replica hand gun will make him showing up in Walmart extremely unlikely. Even will all the orange plugs in the world, it will still be perceived too much of a public relations nightmare.
