From the immensely popular side story “Gundam seed Astray” comes the Guardian of the “declaration of the sky”, gold frame amatsu Mina, to the RG series! the stealth functions of amatsu Mina have been independently investigated. The differences in texture of the external parts of the actual mobile suit have been realistically recreated through the use of the colored plastic and different materials. The arms are movable and have the ability to be extended and retracted, a mechanism that is unique to the RG series. The rear-mounted maga no ikutachi incorporates deployment, extension and retraction gimmicks. Detailed gimmicks have been recreated based on the actuator and other mechanisms used on the actual mobile suit. Amatsu mina’s extensive weaponry has also been replicated with superb detailing. The spear-shaped weapon, okitsu no Kagami, used for both offense ande defense, is crafted utilizing solid and clear parts for the first time in the 1/144 scale. Set includes okitsu no Kagami x1, Trikeros Kai x1, totsuka no tsurugi x2, tsumugari no tachi x1, and magashira hoko x2. Runner x14. Realistic decal x1. Wire (1.9×150 mm) x1. Wire (1.5×290 mm) x1.

Thanks to Big Bad Toy Store we now have more details on the upcoming Asia Exclusive Masterpiece Megatron release. Previous information was pretty cryptic, especially the reference to the “Destron leader repaint”. Originally I thought this would mean a gray and blue repaint similar to the original Japanese Megatron figure release. Instead this is a gold repaint, a fairly obscure reference to the early pre-G1 Megatron prototype and original release box art that eluded to an original attempt to release the Decepticon (Destron in Japan) leader in gold. Good thing they didn’t back then, gold plastic is notorious for becoming very brittle over time (something I’ve experienced first hand multiple times).
The new figure appears to use a gold coating rather than gold paint or chrome. It’s more expensive than paint or chrome, but it’s also more resilient to wear and and gives the figure a more even look. It doesn’t have quite the shine that Lucky Draw figures have, but it isn’t as dull as gold painted figures either. In the end it isn’t a bad looking figure, if you don’t mind the looks of Masterpiece Megatron that is. In addition to the gold the spots on his sides and inside his legs are now purple rather than red like the original. Looks like he’ll also include his original release accessories, though they don’t appear to be altered.
As an Asia exclusive these will be a little difficult to get your hands on for cheap. They won’t be available in Japan and shipping to the the US from most of Asia is pricey. BBTS and TFSource are both asking US$199.99 and calling for a December release. Robot Kingdom, based in Hong Kong, will certainly have orders up for less whenever they officially start, but keep in mind the shipping prices will be excessive. To be honest I’m not all that crazy about this release. Asia exclusive aside, this really isn’t that great of a figure to begin with. If I’m going to buy another Masterpiece Megatron it’s going to be an all new figure in the current smaller scale.
Planet Iacon has posted an image of MP-05G Megatron still in his plastic tray, but it’s the best and clearest image of the Asia-exclusive version of Megatron we’ve yet seen. All of the original accessories are still here, including the Optimus Prime Murder Weapon Accessory Set of a Beam Dagger and Pistol -and also Kremzeek! Keep reading to see the image!
