Takara’s Transformers Classic line has already brought us fine, quality collector’s pieces that have inspired both awe and nostalgia. And now offerings from the Masterpiece series are definite must-have figures for serious, adult collectors, especially those with a fondness for now-vintage incarnations of the original Transformers.
Peep this 12-inch deluxe toy, the ultimate Masterpiece figure yet! The Ultra Magnus MP-22 cab utilizes the MP-10 mold and has a fully functioning and transforming trailer that forms the robot with armor, just like the G1 toy! Own the chief lieutenant of Optimus Prime in all of his futuristic, robotic, shape-shifting glory.
Ultra Magnus is more comfortable as a soldier than as a leader, but that’s kind of what we like about him.
One of the most novel and anticipated offerings in Takara’s Masterpiece Series is the 2014 Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Silverstreak. The Autobot formerly known as Bluestreak is known for his chit-chatty nature and transforms into a silver Datsun or a Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan when he’s got time off from taking out Decepticons. Although his joking chatter has been said to elevate the mood of fellow Autobots, it’s really a way that he deals with seeing too much battle carnage throughout his life.
But his complex psyche is just one reason why Silverstreak is one of the most dynamic characters of the Transformers franchise. This figure in particular is a scrupulous re-make of the original G1 Nissan Fairlady Z toy with up-to-date articulation and details. You can’t miss it!
“I never met a Decepticon I didn’t dislike.”
One of the most highly anticipated Masterpiece figures to date, figure includes his shoulder mounted cannons, rifle and minty fresh Datsun/Fairlady Z car alt mode we all know and love!

RAVAGE and RUMBLE make up this new 2-pack imported from Japan. Part of the Takara collection, it’s a duo you’ll have to see up-close to believe, with the articulation and detail sure to impress. Here are the write-ups straight from the source:
Cassette Warrior Rumble is a runt of a Decepticon with a Devastator-sized temper, a temper which is fueled by ridicule coming both from the Autobots and Rumble’s fellow Decepticons. Rumble loves destroying anything in his immediate vicinity, and fortunately his piledriver arms enable him to generate blast attacks and powerful quakes, which makes him one of Soundwave’s more valuable followers.
The most mysterious warrior in Soundwave’s cassette entourage, Ravage is a silent, brooding presence, frequently working alone. He is generally more deliberating than Frenzy. A feral adversary possessing an almost preternatural penchant for stealth, Ravage is versatile enough to be equally valuable in open combat situations and in darker endeavors requiring subtler sabotage.
Both OPTIMUS PRIME and RODIMUS PRIME are now available for pre-order for any fan of the famed Robots in Disguise. Check these out!
The Takara collection is imported from Japan and generally boasts a higher quality construction, some improved materials and pretty awesome designs. They bring a retro sensibility to a new building technology and do a great job of recreating the feeling of the old-school Transformers for fans who love them. These guys are pre-orderable now and ship later this month!
