The official TakaraTomy Transformers Twitter have treated us with new official in-hand images of the new Transformers Masterpiece MP-53+ Senator Crosscut..
We have two clear shots of the next variant of the MP-53 Masterpiece Skids mold. We have a look at the robot and alt mode showing the new deco, head and the included small Motocompo.

He was at a local store here in the UK. Takara got me again.
Got him today from Hasbro Pulse. He's great, but my rear driver side wheel doesn't spin. Was it pinned improperly, or does anyone have any tips to get it going? I don't want to return/exchange, but for my money I need my carbots to roll!
EDIT: Looks like it's misassembled. They used one of his front wheels (different mold, has slot for arm tab) on the back so I'm guessing that's why it won't spin. Bummer
People who ordered this from Hasbro Pulse are now being charged. Anybody who missed him, Pulse will likely have him in stock soon.
Is this available anywhere? I'm beginning to think maybe Baba forgot to order it, or something!
Taiho was a non-TF reference, but used a head based more on the Skids toy rather than the Sunbow head.
For my own 2 cents, if they do a toy deco Skids or any of the other Skids-colors like Burnout, etc, I'd like a more toy-styled head, like the way Loud Pedal and Cordon got more toyish heads.
The other 2 Diaclone Honda City Turbo's had the same exact head as the Diaclone/G1 Skids toy. So I assume if they were to do the other 2 Honda City Turbo releases they would use the MP-53 Skids Head
I dunno what a XTB Taiho is, I don't do third party
I am figuring you meant the toy Skids head, like what XTB's Taiho has, not the Skids toon head.
Anyone still waiting for Baba on this? Silence
Help! I'm turning blue already
I forgot what thread I was in
For MP, we just need Burnout (black) and red Skids. Both have Skids heads. Wow.. I’m losing it..
Crosscut and Reboost were already released, Black Skids and Red Skids have not
And hopefully they stick to that if they do them. Burnout is coming, and Crosscut is inevitable. Reboost and the red Skids are questionable.
If they go by the original Diaclone releases then they wont. Both repaints had Skid's head
They better get new heads or I'll hold my breathe until Tt does
Oh, that silver colour looks AMAZING. I wasn't going to get him (I have Reboost still in the box; Skids is the only one on display), but I am a sucker for sweet silver alt modes.
Indeed. We still have Burnout and the as-yet-unnamed red Skids. I just hope TT announce them before the XTB ones get close to being released…
Complete for now………there are 2 more versions of the Hona City Turbo yet to be made
Even more finally………View attachment 29489389
…….I was getting worried he would never arrive. Anyway glad to be complete on the Honda's now.
Ikkstakk my dear friend, if only all fans are as altruistic as you . In another world, another time, pitchforks would have been raised against TT shortchanging/overcharging us.
On a side note, it awesome we have a designer who can manage to do what he can.
The holomatter figure represents Kojin Ono, he tipped it into Reboost since he owned a red City in the 80s. He didn't own a silver City, so… no holomatter figure.
