More images of Masterpiece MP-42 Cordon have been posted on Dengeki Hobby. These images show off both of Cordon’s modes views from the front, back and sides, but more importantly, they also show off Cordon with the silver arm cannon attached over the wrist, confirming that this weapon can emulate the look of the original Diaclone toy which had the option of replacing the fist with a missile. There are also a couple of nice comparison shots, one of the two vehicle mode configurations next to each other, and a shot of Cordon next to fellow police Autobot Prowl rocking the police issue black and white.
Unfortunately with these images and more information coming out today, it has been confirmed that Cordon will be coming with a no-frills selection of accessories, consisting of two guns and spare wing mirrors, as well as biocards and instructions. That’s all, no alternate faces or other bonuses. This is particularly baffling as Cordon’s price is a fair bit greater than Sunstreaker’s, and Sunstreaker included a lot of extra parts. We’d suspect this higher cost is to offset a lower production run on Cordon, which would be logical given Cordon is a non-show character and therefore would be a harder sell than Sunstreaker.
