Toy News: Masterpiece "Beast Wars" Megatron revealed?

@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!

Amazon.com has posted a listing for the upcoming "Power of the Primes" Optimal Optimus Leader Class figure complete with high quality stock photos! Inspired by events in the "Beast Wars" series, this figure will feature a smaller Optimus Primal figure that "evolves" into Optimal Optimus. No word on an exact release time yet.

The Official Adult Swim Facebook page has posted a video featuring Megatron and Scorponok from "Beast Wars"! While "Robot Chicken" has done many G1 based parodies over the years, "Beast Wars" is not as common. Even better? David Kaye himself reprises his role as Megatron!

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 Masterpiece Dinobot Video

Today's reveal of official Masterpiece Dinobot photos has fans around the world talking. The photos show a triumph of engineering and shows how far we have come since the mid-90's in Transformers engineering. However, in an attempt to ensure fan interest in this figure, Takara Tomy has released an awesome video that shows off not only the Masterpiece Dinobot figure, but also shows the key scenes from "Beast Wars" that influenced the design of the figure! Check out the video in the embed below:

Toy News: Official photos of Masterpiece Dinobot released

Several Transformers news sources have revealed official images of the upcoming Masterpiece Dinobot figure including Taghobby (which appears to be the original source). These are the clearest shots yet of the Predacon-turned-Maximal from "Beast Wars" and the photos help explain some of the $250 USD price point he is averaging for in most shops. The figure towers above Masterpiece Optimus Primal and Cheetor, so his size is substantial. The seeming complexity of the transformation also appears to be a factor.
