Toy News: Possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal revealed

A surprise post on Baidu appears to show a possible SDCC exclusive Optimus Primal figure! This redeco of "Power of the Primes" Optimus Primal using Optimus Prime's original black/white/red color scheme! Optimus sits on the "Throne of the Primes" and it appears he comes with what could be the "final" three Prime Masters that have not been released at retail. Also included is a mace that seems to double as a scepter and a homage to Transmetal Optimus Primal's mace weapons.

Thanks to Chris Delarmente‎ via Planet Iacon we now have a better look at the upcoming "Beast Wars" Megatron Masterpiece figure (MP-43). Megatron was revealed a couple weeks ago, but fans only got to see him in robot mode. This magazine spread shows him in both modes and we get a view of the back. It also appears his tail is indeed held by a hand in robot mode!

@ALT_tekka on Twitter has posted an image from what appears to be a toy show in Asia showing off various upcoming products. Perhaps the most awesome reveal is Masterpiece "Beast Wars" Megatron! Showing off the Predacon leader in his Season One "purple T-Rex" based form, this figure looks like the CG model from the show jumped out into toy form! Only the grey model is available right now to view but it gives fans an idea of what awesomeness to expect!

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).
