'memba when the Inferno mold was released? Same with IH etc. The intial SRP was waaaaaaaay out of there! Especially the local based importers. When the actual fig got PO'd, the prices went down. END. :-$
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

Sounds great! Still doesn't sound like proper, sound, justification for that particular price point. I know it's bigger than Primal, but WAAAAAY smaller than Magnus - even considering all these other features - and does not justify that price.

But like Magnus (and Inferno, apparently?) the price will probably go down.

Unfortunately, I am sick, and will get this no matter what. I just... Won't preorder it.

It sounds like they're going all-out with Dinobot, which is great news and goes a way to justifying the price.

If I'm going to spend that much money on a Transformers product, I'd rather do the $300+ for the BW Megatron statue with the Dinobot head on it.

I suspect the price will go down a lot more.
I'm putting my preorder with HLJ as usual, and i'm not expecting preorders from them until he's been revealed in Figure King.

Thanks! I really like how every retailer is using the (illegally reproduced?) photographs from the Tokyo Toy Show pamphlet.

Seriously though, from what I understand, we will be getting a full reveal in a week's time. Keep your eyes peeled.

Yeah...,no. Hell no. I'd be willing to spend 150 on this, but nothing more.

So not going to bite for the expected price of $185 (plus shipping)?

I feel like the box shouldn't be too big so he should ship for fairly cheap, too bad a lot of places won't let him ship SAL.

Must resist. Must resist. Price too high....

He looks really good but he looks off to me in certain aspects. I think I need to see some more pictures in better quality first. The face and head sculpt could be better and the proportions aren’t doing it for me as much as they should. Still looks great though and Dinobot truly got the Masterpiece treatment.

Eh I’ve got time to decide, at the price of $180-250 I probably won’t be able to get him till December 2018/January 2019. By that time he’ll only be available at $250. Or I could do some saving month by month until July. But of course there’s other stuff coming out before then. And then there’s the fact that MP Cheetor doesn’t quite have the hand feel I like...I’m so torn. :BOOM:

Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP 41 Dinobot Fully Revealed

Postby william-james88 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 1:38 pm

Here it is, the biggest news of the year, the full reveal of Takara's Transformers Beast Wars Masterpiece MP 41 Dinobot.
The Japanese preorders are now out so we know the full MSRP for those ordering directly from Takara and it is 28,000 Yen. This is exactly what was initially reported. Of course, those wishing to import it themselves may be privy to retailer specific discounts however as you will see below, this is a big boy, one of the biggest Masterpiece figures yet, and the shipping for such a box could make the total cost a wash compared to what a local collectible stores are selling him at (which is around $250 USD).

Now onto this amazing reveal. Below you will see images of this beast of a figure showing a robot mode which looks like it seriously cannot transform. A shot of him with the previous Beast Wars Masterpiece figures shows he is scaled proportionally in robot mode, being more than a head taller than Optimus Primal. However, a shot of him in beast mode reveals that the scale of the robot mode was clearly the priority here. You will let us know what you think about that. A listing from Amiami gives us a full list of his accessories which can also be seen in a shot below. These, along with the electronics, might help answer for the high price of the figure. He includes a modular base which seems to be the first in a series, similar to what comes with the new Machine Robo figures. You will see no mention of a different set of eyes for the raptor mode but that is because the eye changing gimmick is probably similar to MP Grimlock's where the eyes are not a seperate piece that must be removed to be changed. The full list of accessories will be found after the images that were found on the Snakas blog (initially originating from a now removed Amazon Japan listing).

This figure is scheduled for a July 2018 release.
