Toy News: Masterpiece "Beast Wars" Shadow Panther revealed

For fans who have wondered "What's next?" in the world of Takara Tomy Masterpiece figures, Dengeki Hobby has released photos of Shadow Panther, a redeco of Masterpiece Cheetor! Long time fans may recall that the original Cheetor figure was given a black and silver deco in Japan and released as "Shadow Panther" (who many people used as a substitute for Ravage until the X-9 Ravage figure was released). Now fans will be able to take their "Beast Wars" collection to the next level with Shadow Panther in Masterpiece form!

Toy News: Official photos of 7 inch "Authentics" figures

Last month photos of 4.5 inch scale "Authentics" figures were released on Amazon. These figures appear to be lower priced figures that are aimed at younger kids and appear to be aimed at discount stores like Family Dollar or Dollar General. The initial line up featured Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream. Now a different size class of these figures has been revealed via Hasbro's web site: 7 inch figures! These are not only larger, but appear to feature more articulation than their 4.5 inch counterparts.
