The Transformers Masterpiece series of toys is a line of toys released by Hasbro (and Takara) under the Generation 1 Transformers Toy line.  The Transformers Masterpiece toys are a bit bigger than the original Transformers toys and are more difficult to transform.  The Masterpiece Transformers also pose better than the orginal G1 series.  Despite these changes, the Masterpiece series still "look" like the originals.

For the most part, the Masterpiece series has been released by Takara in Japan.  From there they have been sent to other countries like Europe and the U.S.  Because of this the box and transforming instructions are for the most part in Japanese.

Transformers Background

The Transformers, as many know, have been around for quite a few years.  The original Transformers started out as a toy line in the 1970's and blossomed into a full grown comic and animated television series.  Hasbro marketed these toys in the U.S. with great success.

There are several storylines that follow the Transformers with the basic premise being that Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots and Megatron is the leader of the Decepticons.  These two groups are at war with each other, mostly over energy to fuel themselves.
