The good news just keeps on coming this week, as thanks to TFW2005 boards members trdkamuri51o and Rubicon we have our first sighting of the Transformers: Prime Entertainment Pack from two Toys R Us locations in California. This toy marks the beginning of the Transformers: Prime First Edition rerelease that was announced at San Diego Comic Con
, and until now has not been released in the United States.

Word reaches us of another pair of new Masterpiece Transformers series releases! Online retailers have been getting solicits for a lot more than just what we were able to reveal to you yesterday, with two more Masterpiece releases in the pipeline. These are:
Masterpiece MP-10B Black Convoy - finally confirmed, this is the silhoetted Optimus Prime recolor seen in some Japanese magazine scans. According to information coming at us via our sponsors TFSource this one is coming out in March 2013 and will not include Roller or the trailer.
Masterpiece MP-16 Frenzy & Buzzsaw - MP-16 will be another cassette two pack for Masterpiece Soundwave! MP-15 is as we were able to confirm yesterday Ravage and Rumble, we can now confirm that Frenzy (the blue one) and Buzzsaw will be sold as a second two pack. Estimates from our sponsors also indicate that you can expect these, along with the MP-15 set, in March 2013. There's some disagreement though over whether Rumble is red or blue - but according to a leaked solicitation document posted by the "NAUGHTY GUY" Facebook page
, Takara-Tomy is going with the original toy naming, making Rumble the red one and Frenzy the blue one. Until something official is posted, this is probably the closest we will get to an official word on the names.
All of these, plus those that were revealed yesterday, are up for preorder on TFSource
as well as on Big Bad Toy Store
