Transformers: Masterpiece Checklist

The Masterpiece line is a high-end, collector-oriented toyline with larger, expensive toys, usually extremely detailed and having several additional accessories. It’s mainly developed by TakaraTomy for the Japanese market, but is also distributed by Hasbro mainly as store exclusives, mostly as part of other lines, though starting from 2013 and MP-01 Acid Storm, Hasbro has been releasing Masterpiece as its own store-exclusive line.

Since 2011, the line has done a soft reboot of sorts with a new, smaller Masterpiece Convoy mould and the line has seen a more consistent scale that’s significantly smaller than its larger predecessors. Toys purchased from generally come with additional accessories, such as piledrivers for Lambor or toy-accurate missile launchers for Prowl.
