MP-29 Masterpiece Shockwave Takara is set to unleash a new, highly requested Masterpiece Transformer. By now everyone has seen Shockwave and the overall excitement is high.

Right now BBTS has this item up for pre-order and I encourage all of you to order now to lock him in place. Click on through for the images.

Things have been quiet on the Transformers Masterpiece line but we do have some good news! Bluestreak is on his way and if things follow like in the past, we should see him in the States come SDCC time. Right now he is up on both the Canada TRU site and the Australian TRU site. It's also rumored that Ultra Magnus is coming but no concrete info has been revealed just yet. Just know MP Bluestreak will be here and he looks awesome!
Thanks to the awesome folks over at Ozformers and user Griffin, we now have some new info to share! Griffin had the opportunity to go to the Australian Toy Fair event and while nothing new was shown, new info was provided. This is going to be a great year for G1 collectors as the Platinum Editions are taking off and we will be getting some heavy hitters as well. Conformation was provided for the Platinum Edition reissues of G1 Blaster and Perceptor, we will also be getting a Trypticon reissue along with the Dinobots! No word on who is getting these or if all the Dinobots will be released. Also confirmed was the pending Starscream Masterpiece. We got some hints last year in New York and well, that info seems to coincide with what is being reported. Starscream will sport the new seeker body (MP-11) and he should be a Toys R Us exclusive. Read on for his full report and 2015 is shaping up to be an amazing year for Transformer fans.

Takara has released new images showcasing the deco change to MP-23 EXHAUST. As most of you might know, there was some major controversy concerning this release and Marlboro. The latter claimed the item looked to similar to their product. Many felt Takara would release MP-23 with the current tampo as copyright laws differ in Japan. With Takara making these changes, US online retailers will be able to carry this release! That is the best news I have heard all week. Check out the new images below and look for pre- orders soon!
