After they’ve made a toy-accurate Megatron and a cartoon-accurate Prime, I wonder if they’re going to do a cartoon-accurate Starscream and a toy-accurate Rodimus next. :lol:

New In-Package Images of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-36+ Toy Accurate Megatron

Postby ZeroWolf » Fri Dec 21, 2018 5:34 pm

Motto: "My past no longer binds my future..."
Weapon: Battle Blades
Thanks to a couple of eBay listings, we've got our first look at the box for the forthcoming release of the toy accurate version of MP-36. The first listing is from eBay user SuperBBToysUs while the second is from eBay user day366. MP-36+ also comes with an exclusive collectors coin but from the pictures, it looks like it may just be the same one as sold with the regular MP-36.

It can be pointed out that the designers at Takara Tomy have done their best to invoke the original box art of Megatron with the way the Masterpiece is posed on the front of the package.

What do you think of these pictures? Do you already have this toy accurate Megatron ordered? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

Yeah, hurry up, BBTS, I wanna read Cob's impressions! Take lots of picssss.


I prefer the cartoon but this one looks really cool, too. I do have that unlicensed add-on kit for the "toy" look. Pretty close minus the black paint app on the forehead.

Random thing I just found out.....while looking back through old posts in this thread, it looks like photobucket (who I stopped using some time back) is once again hosting pictures free of charge.

I noticed that as well, but now with the lovel "proudly hosted" watermark. They can in fact go die.

That would've been a nice additional helmet just to cover all the bases!! And the comics started with a more toy-design influence at first. Like Brawn walking around with his lame arms.

Only in the very first one or two issues, before the characters designs from the production bible had been finalized.

That's what I thought, before the end of the "4-part miniseries".

Regardless!! Who's getting this guy? I know Cobotron is!
