#-o Of course. Thanks. There are several episodes of Season One I don't seem to retain in the old memory banks, That was one of them.

Yet I also notice:

(A) No Toothbrush :(

(B) No Rubber Ducky... Hope remains for MP Transmetals :-D

New Colour Images of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron and Features

Postby Va'al » Fri Jun 22, 2018 9:45 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Fellow Seibertronians kurthy and shajaki have pointed us towards new images (thanks to Twitter user RYO) of the next Beast Wars Masterpiece figure from Takara Tomy Transformers, the purple leader of the Predacons himself, Megatron! What we get to see in the images - mirrored below for your viewing pleasure - is the accessories that accompany the release of the figure, including stand parts, shooting beam effect, hunting rifle (as seen in the 'Call of the Wild' episode of the animated series), some pose and size comparisons with Optimus Primal and Dinobot, plus a new look at how many parts of the figure are actually detachable - it's a lot.

Take it all in below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

If you look in the second photo at his tail arm you can see that he seems to have two way elbow joints so he doesn't have the ****** curler arms

So it seems he doesn't come with the stand after all, just some adapters for Dinobot's stand. That's great news and hopefully will keep his price a little more manageable.

Ah that makes sense. At first I thought they were trying to give us the look he had when we see him in the first episode, which obviously doesnt work with that giant T-Rex head. But now I see what the point was. I hope those removeable pieces still latch on well and we dont have another Raideen from SOC scenario.

Think of it this way, When it comes to MP, HasTak has yet to significantly deviate from release dates. Therefore:

G1 - 1984 to 1990 - They haven't even finished 1984 yet #-o

G2 - 1993 to 1995 - A G2 MP figure does exist, so more are not impossible.

Beast Wars - 1996 to 1999 - They will shortly be Four characters into Season One. 4 of 14. Plus one redeco.

Beast Wars II - 1998 to 1999

Beast Wars Neo - 1999

Beast Machines - 1999 to 2000

Car Robots - 2000 to 2001

Armada - 2002 to 2003

He also has a removeable backpack that you need to achieve his alt mode but it does not stay on securely.

Ah I see, hopefully in megs case it attaches securely but it does raise the spectre of future qc issues.
