Pre-Order Alert: "Masterpiece" Blackarachnia Now Available for Pre-Order via US Retailers

After yesterday's awesome flurry of official photos featuring "Masterpiece" MP-46 Blackarachnia, U.S. retailers have surprised fans by putting up preorders overnight! Once upon a time, fans would have to wait for Japanese retailers or importers to list "Masterpiece" figures, but for a while now "Masterpiece" figures have become something of a joint effort between Hasbro and Takara Tomy, seeing release not only in Japan (and parts of Asia) but other countries as well!

About a week ago fans were treated to photos of "Masterpiece" Blackarachnia's beast mode from the 58th Shizuoka Hobby Show in Japan. Now thanks to Digitamin we have more photos to look at! These appear to be the official Takara Tomy product shots, but since they are not from an official source of course take these with a grain of salt.

Toy News: Masterpiece "Beast Wars" Megatron appears in Figure King Magazine

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!

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!
