We brought you a fair amount of content recently on Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron - our latest here - but thanks to Twincaster megatronus, we also have so eyebrow-raising information via site sponsor HobbyLinkJapan: the return of the orange cap for the gun mode of the toy. This seems to only apply to US and Australia, due to their firearm laws, but may extend to other markets too. Read more about it below!

Hello-

This is Mark Kutsugi at HobbyLink Japan. Thank you very much for your order with us for Takara-Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron. We anticipate starting to fill orders for this item on or about April 3 Japan time.

This toy will be packaged in robot mode. However, it can be transformed into a realistic-looking likeness of a gun, which we understand is also pictured on this item's packaging. As a result, for customers in the United States and Australia, HobbyLink Japan will be placing a plastic orange plug into the end of the barrel in order to keep this toy in compliance with Title 15, Chapter 76 of the United States Code.

Installing this plug on the item will require our staff to open the packaging, which will require cutting the tape holding the box flap closed. This will be performed with the utmost care, but of course it will prevent us from delivering this product to U.S. and Australian customers in "unopened" condition. Note that without this modification, your purchase could be confiscated by your country's customs service, and U.S. customers could be charged with a crime under the above U.S. Federal law.

HobbyLink Japan understands and appreciates the desires of toy collectors in the U.S. and Australia related to merchandise of this nature, and we feel this is the best solution to meet those needs under the circumstances. In order to maintain your item's compliance with your country's laws, we recommend that you do not remove the plastic plug after you have received the item.

We appreciate your understanding, and your business with us.


Best Regards,


Mark Kutsugi
HobbyLink Japan

Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron comes out next week and ew have some in hand images to tide you over. These come from Phamduc a member of TFW2005 and his aim was to show us how Megatron looks like with other figures, specifically Shockwave, Soundwave and Optimus Prime (the grey Bape version is used here). He is clearly taller than his subordonates. If you want to see the most complex transformation ever seen on a Transformers, be sure to check out this video showcasing the transformation of this new MP Megatron.

Enjoy!

It is very easy for westerners to forget or ignore but one of the biggest changes brought to the 10th Anniversary Movie The Best MB 11 Pptimus Prime are the electronics. You remember your ROTF leader simply saying his name over and over? Well takara went all out on this ultimate rendition of the mold.

Watch the video below to see the plethora of phrases Optimus says. These are all recorded by the legendary Tessho Genda, who is the voice of Optimus Prime/Convoy in both the G1 cartoon and in the Live Action films (just like Peter Cullen). Tessho Genda is easily the most prolific and legendary voice actor attached to American properties in Japan since not only is he the voice of Optimus Prime but also the voice of Batman (he is the Japanese counterpart to Kevin Conroy) and God of War's Kratos.

For those unaware, this is also the very first Takara release to have articulated hands and the knuckle accessory, along with the retooled abdominal area, swords, hooks and gun made from gaz tanks of the later versions.

Transformers: The Last Knight's Shadow Spark Optimus Prime was revealed a while ago at an event in Hong Kong. As with many reveals, it was hard to make out if it was a painted model and how indicative it was of the finished product. Well, Notrab on Weibo has the finished product in hand. This is a straight redeco of the Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime figure released at retail in the US. For those turned off by this and hoping not to see this toy clog shelves, we have good news, it is an Asia exclusive. So it will not be distributed in the US aside from importer shops and will thus have a possible mark-up. For those wanting this figure, it is not up for preorder anywhere in Asia yet but we will keep you updated when it becomes available.

Enjoy these images of Shadow Spark Optimus Prime.

While Titans Return Sixshot is finally reaching saturation in the US, there is of course no sign of Sky Shadow. So while a big chunk of the fandom waits, I have put together some images we have not seen yet, of how Titans Return Sky Shadow works in base mode connected to other bases in an interconnected city. He actually has 3 connection points, offering different altitudes of connection and the legs offer various possible angles to connect to other bases, as you can see below. You will also find images of how he looks like with different faces on, just for fun.

Enjoy!

The Bitfigs figures are small non transforming collectible figures found in capsules (gashapon) in Japan. We knew of the first wave back in September last year and while there were listings for the second wave (or as they call it Part 2), there was no image available. Well, we finally have one which was found on Taobao. We can now see Skywarp, Ironhide, Soundwave and Black Convoy. The first wave featured Convoy, Megatron, Starscream, and Jazz, and we have put images below showing their size and that their heads can be swapped.

Thanks to the convention's own twitter, we have confirmation that the upcoming Pete's Robot Convention this summer will not only show the proposed toys for a Botcon 2017 - one that unfortunately will never happen - but will also give away what would have been the 5-piece set as a possible prize to anyone who pre-registers the convention, which you can do on their website - just make sure to do it by April 15th!

While the identities of the four other figures in the set are unknown - though four Sixshot silhouettes loom suspiciously in the background - the Twitter account has revealed the first figure to be Skyfall; the Action Master who achieved some infamy among the fandom through an IDW prose story! Made from the Titans Return Highbrow mold and using the Titan Master Apeface, he is a very faithful re-creation of his original toy's colour scheme.

In addition to this extremely illustrious prize, we are also told that there will be a panel featuring the creative team behind many Botcon exclusive toys over the years, not to mention a look at some of the many unused concepts during their time on the job. Take a look at the image posted to the convention's Twitter, be sure to visit their website, and tell us what you think of all this in the forums!

Fellow Seibertronian Emerje has shown us a picture of a new redeco of Transformers Generations Cyber Series Optimus Prime. In comparison to it's original release in 2015 this figure has some slight differences. The arms have more of a grey look as opposed to the original figure. From what we can see on the packaging it appears that the glass armor on Optimus Prime's chest is more of an aqua.

We will have a more accurate idea of what this figure looks like when it is out of the packaging for a review so stay tuned!

We've got some new in-hand photos of LG-43 Dinosaurer, courtesy of the TakaraTomyToys twitter! (What a mouthful!)
The new photos show the massive dino doing some finances and balancing some budgets. Who knew he was so fiscally responsible? Check out the photos below, and make sure to sound off on the boards to tell fellow Seibertronians if plan to make Dinosaurer (or Trypticon) your accountant when he comes out later this year!
