Tokyo Toy Show brought us a great deal of news last week and I wanted to make sure I collected the major highlights all in one place. Those major highlights, if you haven’t heard yet, were the official unveiling of 3 new Masterpiece Transformers figures. I have included video of the presentation below. The Masterpiece portion begins at the 15 minute mark.
For lots of information and pictures, continue with us after the jump!

Thanks to the GI Joe club, some better photos of the SDCC 2012 GIJoe/Transformers exclusive Shockwave HISS tank have surfaces revealing many of the accessories that will be coming alongside the custom vehicle. Good luck getting your hands on one of these, collectors. It is not going to be easy.
It appears the set will include the following:
HISS tank with custom Shockwave cannon turret
Constructicon colored BAT
Suitcase of cash
2 guns for Destro
2 contructicon colored weapons for the BAT
3 Energon cubes and cart to move them
A small scale Soundwave cassette player
3 cassettes to put in Soundwave
Fun Publications, the folks who run the Botcon convention, have posted a picture on facebook revealing the box art for the 2012 convention box set. As seen above, the art features each of the six characters in the set; Metalhawk, Overlord Gigatron, Shattered Glass Tracks, Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus, Shattered Glass Treadshot and Shattered Glass Soundwave.
Botcon will be held in Dallas, Texas this year from April 26th to 29th.
Comments and reactions go below!
We saw him during registration. Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus is a repaint of the Reveal the Shield G2 Optimus Prime mold. The head is molded in translucent plastic. It looks like a new head to me, but the clear plastic is throwing me off and I don’t have the figure nearby to compare. The only remaining figure now is Metalhawk, which will be revealed next week.
Similar, to Shattered Glass Tracks, no real surprises here. We’ve seen Shattered Glass Soundwave on numerous occasions before and he’s always portrayed with this mold. He will not come with his yellow bandana, but it will be available for purchase separately from the club. Logistically speaking regarding the toy’s production, that makes a lot of sense. Speaking from a fan’s perspective, I can guarantee that move will cause a lot of frustration. In a stranger turn of events, the Cold Slither logo appears on Soundwave’s alt mode. Cold Slither is a GI Joe reference. In the old GI Joe show, the Drednoks masqueraded as a rock band called Cold Slither.
When I purchased Top Spin and Twin Twist in the dealer room on Friday, I also noted a bag filled with translucent and clear knock-offs of the Laserbeak and Rumble/Frenzy cassette molds. The bag was labeled five dollars each and contained seven different cassettes. Four Laserbeaks and three Rumbles. I took a mental note of the bag and decided if I was still thinking about it Saturday, I would go back and see if they were still there and sure enough they were. I decided to just pick up the whole bag since they were small and my purchasing has been limited so far.
Read on for more pictures and details of these interesting knock-offs.
