Masterpiece MP-20 Clarification

MP-20

We have some additional information about the next installment in the Transformers Masterpiece series for you now. 2005 Boards member MACRAPTRON was also present at the Tokyo Toy Show panel yesterday, and can report on what Shogo Hasui said during the presentation:

Hasui: “About the new Masterpiece, I believe many of you want to hear about MP20. We can’t show it yet, but MP20 will finally be that character, that car model which the license was very difficult to obtain”.

MC: “Why? (can’t show now?)”

Hasui: “You’ll have to wait/please wait some more”

This does not quite match what we heard yesterday, but this does fit with what we heard previously about the Takara-Tomy team relentlessly pursuing licenses for the car models of the other Generation 1 characters. From Hasui’s wording, it sounds like MP-20 might be a character with a licensed car mode which has been very hard to obtain for the line – which narrows the field of candidates quite considerably.

We will share more news and information as it reaches us.

    I don't know if MASABON talked to Hasui or Maeda AFTER the video and they told him MP20 will be a 'concept car' and 'new design', but that's not what Hasui says in the video:

    Hasui: "About the new Masterpiece, I believe many of you want to hear about MP20. We can't show it yet, but MP20 will finally be that character, that car model which the license was very difficult to obtain".

    MC: "Why? (can't show now?)"

    Hasui: "You'll have to wait/please wait some more"


    Again, maybe MASABON heard something else from Hasui or Maeda AFTER the presentation, but this is what Hasui says on the video regarding MP20. People are still speculating over the wrong info and I thought a new thread would clarify the issue. Please delete if it's the wrong place to post this, thanks.

    EDIT: I wasn't there, all I did was to translate Hasui's comments on MP20 in the video posted by MASABON.

    Hasui is quite dramatic talking about the license thing, I'd say it's Bumblebee or Jazz. Really hope it's Jazz... I mean, Meister.

    It would be nice if we could get MASABON to clarify if there was anything else said that wasn't in the video.

    If thats all he had to say about the next Masterpiece toy, he would have done better not to say anything at all.

    Oh, I don't know. Its nice to know its a car, and that it was hard to get the license. Really that gives us a ton of information. We were all busy trying to decide between Megatron v2, Galvatron, and Ultra Magnus. We were way off.
