Thanks to Hobbybase via Type-R new pics of the die-cast Megatron accessory that’s set to come with the Asia release of Masterpiece Shockwave have surfaced. This is a non transformable version of Megatron in gun mode, in raw metal form. He’s the perfect size to fit into Shocky’s hand, complete with his own mini box. These releases for the moment at least seem to be the new add-on bonus for Asia releases in place of the coins. Check out some pics after the jump.

The next Masterpiece release is out in the wild, this time an “anime” recolor of MP-14 Red Alert. This version has light grey color instead of stark white like the original toy to better match the cartoon. By itself on first glance it’s hard to tell, but there is a significant difference with the white paint found on the first release and other white Masterpieces. If you missed out on the first run of Red Alert, he’s a worthy stand in to help complete your Autobot ranks. We’ve done up a gallery so head on over to Reflector @ TFW2005 and check out 55+ images in action.
Of Note: Reflector @ TFW2005 is our new image focused toy gallery, is mobile friendly, and you can swipe through the whole set at once.

Thanks for an early review done by Japanese Toy Magazine Dengeki Hobby, we are treated to final product images of the upcoming Masterpiece MP-32 Convoy (Beast Wars). Dengeki Hobby’s gallery gives us a glimpse of the many play features present on the Masterpiece figure. This include Mega Blasters on the shoulder, hidden wrist cannons, and storage for the Cyber Blades on the back of the robot mode. Images also shows off the shoulder joint assembly that allows the figure to stand on four limbs in beast mode.
Another highlighted feature is the face changing gimmick. This mastepiece figure includes 3 additional face plates for the robot mode and 2 for beast mode. It was also revealed that the robot mode head will feature electronic light up eyes, which can be set to automatically turns off after a few seconds according to the written review.

Transformers Asia have revealed that like Masterpiece Grapple, Masterpiece Inferno will be coming with a die-cast figurine when he is released in Asia. Where Grapple comes with an Ultra Magnus, Inferno is set to come with a non-transformable, unpainted die-cast figurine of Optimus Prime himself. There is an image of the box that the Optimus Prime comes in – a nice window box for display, no less. The box is labelled as #1, suggesting that this and Ultra Magnus are just the first in what will potentially be a whole series of collectible die-cast figurines being given away alongside Masterpiece releases in the Asian market.
Thanks to the Facebook page of site sponsor RobotKingdom, we have news of another diecast mini-figure packaged with a Masterpiece figure. This time the figure is Ultra Magnus and will be coming with MP-35 Grapple as a Transformers Asia exclusive.
Separate listings for the MP-35 + diecast Ultra Magnus are available via our sponsors up above for about $154.99 USD.

Takara’s Diaclone inspired repaints of Masterpiece figures continue this month with a big one, Delta Magnus!
