Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor (Sideswipe)
His weapons can be loaded onto the top of the vehicle mode.
Lambor stands around 6.5 inches tall.
Shoulder rocket launcher ( a bit tricky to put into place)
Thanks to the well-placed joints, the figure has way lots more poseability than any other version of Sideswipe.
Pile driver accessories
Amazon.Jp has exclusive pile drivers for those who ordered through them.
I love that he can do a running pose, I only wish there was diecast in the feet to help balance the figure even better.
Takaratomy designers really outdid themselves here. Superb poseability and spot on, toon-accurate proportions!
Unfortunately, as great as this toy is, there are downsides. The figure has zero diecast now (sigh…), the tires are plastic and the shoulder missile launcher is a bit hard to slot into the hole thanks to the hinge joint design. Spike also cannot fit inside vehicle mode (no room). I was also hoping they would come up with a clever way for storing the rifle like Optimus Prime, but alas.
Comparisons with other Lambors
-G1- 120 Grams
-Binaltech- 316 Grams
-Henkei- 94 Grams
Last but not least, the Asia Exclusive coin, the round part of the package rotates.
I’m really excited to get Red Alert in the coming weeks. 🙂
I’ll do a pic with MP10 Optimus Prime later on when Red Alert rolls out.
