Hopefully Megatron.

Always count on redecos happening first :lol: I honestly think the next thing we'll get is a Dinobot mold re-use. He's certainly got a lot to choose from...
But after that? I'll be surprised if Megatron isn't next.

He does? I can see Takara doing a Thrustor retool, maybe a toy deco version, but outside of that it'd have to be Grimlock or Fox Kids or some US toy-only deco that I can't imagine them touching. Would be happy to be way wrong about this, for the record!

Original toy, BWN Hardhead, the Season 3 Cyberraptors... they used this mold a lot.

Ah, yep I forgot Hardhead in Neo but good call! Cyber raptors would surprise me but if the mold sells super well I could see it as a quick cash-in

Excited to see that we are finally making ground with this figure. I was hoping to pick Dinobot up, considering how great I found the character. I wasn't that impressed with Cheetor, and I didn't have the money to get Primal, so hopefully he is good and i have money!

As for your question Scotty, Megatron has to come soon. I wouldn't be surprised to see Tigatron soon, but they had better do a Megatron soon.

I had completely forgotten that this figure was coming. I expect the price will be around the seeker range, though, if it is going to be taller than Primal. That is quite deflating.

Of course :roll: :lol:

Come to think of it, this sort of schedule would imply MP Dinobot is coming out sometime next year, right? As are the POTP Dinobots, and any possible redecos of any of those. Year of the friggin' Dinosaurs and related creatures dude!

Well, if Dinobot ends up being MP-41 (remember that Primal fiasco with MP-31 going to an out of nowhere Delta Magnus and Primal going back to MP-32, I ain't gonna say for sure yet) he should come out around April or May, seeing as how Sunstreaker is December and Targetmaster Hot Rod is February, that would be my guess

Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot Price Point Revealed

Postby Va'al » Mon Nov 06, 2017 4:33 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
After the latest news about the character - his appearance in the Kabam Studios Forged to Fight mobile game, reported here - we have another update on the next figure in a high-end collectible toyline from Takara Tomy Transformers: Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot, the third of the Beast Wars character to receive the plastic incarnation treatment!

While we still have very little news about the fan-favourite Predacon turned Maximal, Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook brings us a release date and a price - and you may not be happy about the latter. According to their source, we're looking at 28000 Yen (approx 245 USD at the time of writing), making it the priciest MP figure to date, due in July 2018. What do you make of this new information? Is it a turn-off? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Takaratomy Transformers Next Masterpiece

We have a confirmation on the coming up Transformers Masterpiece MP-41 will be the expected Dinobot from Beast Wars. But there is surprising pricey on him as we have been told the Retail Price is 28,000 JPY!

Meanwhile, we are not sure how big Dinobot will be or just Takaratomy send out a wrong information on the price. If this is the final case, Dinobot will be the most expensive MP so far.

Price: 28,000 JPY
Release Date: July, 2018

Well that is a massive deal breaker, if true. I won't even pay that for superior 3rd party product.



It has to be an error.

We are waiting for other sources to confirm what the situation actually is, but that is currently the price reported by all retailers carrying the figure.

Hell no. Only time I've paid that much was either a 3P combiner, or TM3 Megatron. And even then, they were a rarity because it was my favourite combiner and a Beast Wars botcon that was the last one. But for a regular MP release? Unless it comes with a full sized Axalon control room diorama with tables and chairs, all interest in this has gone instantly.

If they are keeping Dinobot in scale with the other MP figures, he should be a head taller than MP Primal... but... yikes. I don't see that causing such a price hike. What are they expecting to include with him, a MP Rattrap to ride on top of him???

Megatron was that price so he’s gotta he that big. I mean he is dinobot after all and he better come with a slew of accessories. His blaster from code of a hero, swappable bartle damage, golden discs etc

BBTS has their preorder up at $249. I assume that's based on the same info Takara sent other retailers.

Unless Dinobot is as complex a figure as MP Megatron I can't see any justification for that price. If this is the new reality for Masterpiece figures, I'm out.

It has to be some kind of mistake. Surely they can't charge such prices for a figure that will be slightly taller than MP Ironhide?
