Masterpiece Transformers Toy Review Index

in Action Figure Review

Masterpiece

Introduced in 2003, the Masterpiece line of Transformers created some of the highest quality Transformers ever made for the specialty market. Targeted towards a more discriminating collector, these figures often featured high levels of detail, articulation and in some cases, die cast metal with rubber tires. The listings below were put together by The TFWiki, your one stop shop for Transformers information.

Regular Releases
Begun in 2003, the "Masterpiece" line started as a series of "one off" figures, but in 2011 the line began anew with less focus on die-cast metal and more on creating a cohesive line representing Generation One characters with accuracy to the Generation One cartoon models being a priority.
