Just Another Black Repaint?

Masterpiece G2 Lambor

Surely this means no MP Deep Cover?


That’s pretty beautiful isn’t it? The MP-12 Lambor/Sideswipe mould in black. Because everything looks good in black, Masterpiece Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Rodimus and now Sideswipe. I’ve now seen all of those black repaints in the flesh and my opinion is that they are beautiful, but whether they are worthy of the extra spend is a matter of how …

Who Is Tigertrack? – Part 2

Heritage


Who is Tigertrack and why does he deserve a Transformers Masterpiece release? That’s the question we asked last week, and we saw that yellow was the colour we could originally have gotten “Sideswipe” in for Transformers. Had this plan gone two steps further – stock art and photography – before being changed, we’d have another Blue Bluestreak on our hands. …

Binaltech BT-01 to BT-04

Start of something beautiful


Licensed real-life vehicles, strong homages to Generation 1 Transformers, updated interpretations with much-improved posability and action figure technology, aimed at the collectors moreso than children, feverishly lapped up by fans during their pomp. No, this is not another article about the new Masterpiece Transformers toy line, I am talking about Takara’s Transformers Binaltech chapter, a series of toys that these …

What Now? (The New Masterpiece – Part 2)

Geneva Motor Show 1971?


What if Hasbro don’t release the Lamborghini Countach moulds as part of their Masterpiece Transformers line? What if Takara Tomy don’t do a second production run of either toy and instead move along to the other Autobot cars beyond Prowl, Streak and Smokescreen? Prices will continue to rise, that’s what. There’s not currently a whole lot of …

Good Good Timing (The New Masterpiece – Part 1)

Just as the hysteria and popularity surrounding the Takara Tomy Masterpiece Transformers line was reaching record heights and the most popular items were selling out at all online stores, I finally cracked and decided to pursue a new Masterpiece collection. With the only options being the second-hand market or eBay, prices are escalating to the …

What Am I Doing?

Masterpiece Lambor, Prowl & Streak


What am I doing? Takara Tomy is putting out some of the most exciting and incredible collector-focused product seen for years in the world of Transformers, and I’m not pre-ordering, buying or collecting any of it. When saving money by not buying things or going out, not splashing out on holidays due to accumulating savings for a property, trying …

Good things come in small packages


Just when you thought it was safe to read a Transformers blog once more, we have the fifth part of our trilogy of amazing rarities and obscurities contributed by our supportive group of kind and experienced collectors. We’ve seen massively hard-to-find European packaging variants, unheard of pre-Transformers items such as prize collector’s cards and Middle-Eastern Diaclones, Venezuelan minibots and Japanese …
