As promised several days ago, Takara Tomy has released official photos of their upcoming "Unite Warriors" Baldigus on Takara Tomy Mall!

Toy News: NEW Masterpiece Megatron revealed?

DaimChocReports has posted images that appear to be from a Japanese toy magazine featuring a new Masterpiece Megatron! If these are the real deal then this features an amazing new piece that has more G1 animation style proportions (the first Masterpiece Megatron leaned more towards G1 toy proportions in some areas). Among other features are:

  • Removable face piece.
  • Different expressions.
  • "Battle damaged" head and chest.
  • Posable mace weapon.
