Rounding out our gallery coverage of Masterpiece Soundwave and his cassettes, here are galleries of Masterpiece MP-16 Frenzy and Buzzsaw. Frenzy and Buzzsaw are both redecos of the previously released Rumble and Laserbeak, just as they were in Generation 1 – this of course means all the good stuff going on with those two toys carries over with these two. Buzzsaw in particular is a great deco – I personally really appreciate the orange beak over the flat grey one on Laserbeak. As for Frenzy – call him whichever you like, this is the iconic Decepticon who Soundwave would dispatch to cause localized earthquakes to shake up his opponents in the Sunbow Generation 1 cartoon.
Masterpiece Soundwave is getting a release later in the year in the US, and he’ll be coming with all five of his cassettes – Laserbeak, Rumble, Ravage, Frenzy and Buzzsaw. The individual Japanese releases are worth the price of admission in my eyes – the US release, with a very reasonable price for the six Transformers will certainly be a must-have for many fans.
