Every month we get new scans from the hobby magazine Figure King which is Takara's main channel for reveals, outside of shows, and new product images. And this one might be one for the ages with the best look yet at many upcoming Masterpiece figures, one of them being Beast Wars Megatron, probably the most sought after since the line's inception. Many of these images did crop up in the corresponding figures' threads but Loopaza has now uploaded high quality images of the entire Transformers section. We see that not only did we have Masterpiece figures, but we also have new shots of the Gold Lagoon repaints and Encore Beast Wars Returns Convoy (Beast Machines Optimus Primal). There is one cool shot of the 3 Optimus Primal figures we got recently reminding us all that big bot is getting some well deserved love.

Here are the corresponding figures' if you want to join the discussion:

MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron

MP Optimus Prime 3.0

Beast Machines Optimus Primal

Gold Lagoon Figures

MP 36+ Megatron G1 Toy Deco

Power of the Primes

This month Magazine Figure King cover the coming up Masterpiece MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron in full color! All the details being shown in full and all other Transformers line up as well. And finally, the first look of the Masterpiece Optimus Prime 3.0 version!

I'm not sure I like this Optimus, his torso seems weirdly small compared to MP10

It was just over a week before SDCC 2017 when Hasbro officially announced their exclusives last year so don't be surprised if we don't hear anything this year until a week or so into July.

On topic: I'm not crazy about the gold lagoon set, but I do have to admire Takara Tomy's dedication in combining four different lines (Unite Warriors, Legends, Power of the Primes, and Masterpiece) to make this all work.

The new action figure magazine is out and the hot item this month is the Unicron of Light which is the antithesis to Armada Unicron, made up of all the minicons and their combined energy/light. While it is a representation of the same thing the Lucky Draw toy is based on, it has a very different take on the deco, which is a smart way to keep the Lucky Draw unique and collectable while offering everyone now a chance to own a representation of this being for their shelves.

We also have some shots of Masterpiece Beast Wars Megatron and of toys identical to their Hasbro counterpart like Wreck Gar and Nemesis Prime.This is indeed lighter than previous months, especially since there are fewer Transformers toys Takara is releasing differently from Hasbro. That doesn't mean Takara themselves as a company have less to offer. So, we also included more shots from this magazine, showcasing their other giant robot line, Diaclone.

These images were brought to us by the Loopaza Megastore.

Enjoy!

An update of Battle Buffalo?!?

That means the Neo-Diaclone line really is touching back on Transformers: specifically, 'Space Transformers'! Diatron 5!!!

And while I'm not crazy about every liberty taken with the design, this has me wondering just how freaky an updated Warudaros might turn out! Masterpiece Paras B!

Every time i see that Unicron, I want to place him next to a pot of gold with a rainbow coming out of it.

While more high resolution scans would be fun, we wanted to share all the Transformers goodness found in the latest issue of the Figure King Magazine. While this highlights Takara releases, these are for the most part the same figures we are getting from Hasbro (including the Masterpiece toys). The one figure that so far still seems to be Takara exclusive is the Legendary Optimus Prime, which we finally have an image showing us how big it truly is.

We see an image comparing it to the voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, showing it to be the size of a modern day leader class toy (or just about). Speaking of scale, we also see how big Micromasters are, which is the exact same size as the Prime Master decoy armour (so slightly bigger than their G1 counterparts). We also get a sense of how big the Power Charge Bumblebee toy is in vehicle mode.

We also see other Transformers Siege toys, but nothing that has yet to be revealed. What is curious is that the Optimus Pime we are seeing does not have weathering effects. It is unknown if that means there will be a difference between Takara and Hasbro (which would go against what we have been told) or if this is simply an early figure and the final result will be different. We have yet to see the finished product from Hasbro too, since everything we have seen of Siege was a painted model.

We also see Masterpiece Optimus Prime version 3 which highlights his articulation and backpack.

And there is more, much more, like Takara Tomy Studio Series Starcream, Movie Bumblebee and KSI Sentry, MPM-06 Ironhide, Encore Big Convoy, Studio Series DOTM Ratcher, Ironhide and Shadow Raider, PP Throne Of The Primes, Masterpiece Wheeljack, Legends Grotusque and Repugnus and the Unite Warriors reissues.

wow..... they oversized the evasion prime and added the same upgrades to it as the weijang KO did..... the fact that they had to copy a KO and still look worse than it is depressing.... (good job weijang on making an awesome ko that even takara wanted to copy)

He still has the wear paint aps just the lighting and quality of photo obscuring it's view, check the standing pose, left leg.

Also the wear aps are invisible depending on angle of light.

It's a new mold, not an upscale.

its literally the same mold upscaled.... (the freaking thing transforms the same and has the same molding). i feel like there is some denial here purely cause i mentioned they ripped off a ko.

Its been proven not to be the same mold upscaled, the transformation is different

It looks like those who dont want to admit its a new mold are in denial and much preffer the idea of Takara ripping off a KO

It's literally not the same mold.

There are enough engineering, transformation, and detailing differences to negate that.

Things end up in very different places.

It looks the same, because its meant to look the same, same robot mode and same truck mode, but its not the same mold, upscaled by a long shot.

Quoting WJ, from the Bumblebee Movie thread:

william-james88 wrote:The fandom is currently puzzled over the new reveal from Takara Tomy of an Evasion Mode Optimus Prime toy for their upcoming Transformers Bumblebee Movie toyline. How different is it from the previous mold? How much of a retool is it, along with it being an upscale? Well, from certain angles, the changes seem minimal, but at others, as you will see, it might be a completely new mold sharing some transformation steps.

By comparing to images of the Age of Extinction toy, you will notice that everything related to the arms is completely different. The shoulder armour is made of individual pieces, giving further proof that this does have a parts count more akin to a leader class toy. The forearms are completely different too and none of the details match.

Another huge difference, where it seems the transformation itself differs, is when we look at the back. Not only does the back of the top half have different pieces, but in the legs we can see that instead of him having two wheels at his calves, he has two wheels near his hips. So, judging by all this, it is far more likely that this is a new mold using some tricks and design cues of the first toy, like the foot transformation.

That Prime tempts me even if it won't scale with Studio but only if it's released in the UK and at a reasonable price.


Micromasters... I liked them back in the day as Transformers I could easily sneak into school and such but these days they don't really work for me as mainline figures. They're just too ridiculously out of scale with non-Micromaster figures. Legends/Legions make sense because they're small simpler alternatives of characters who have larger more complex figures and serve a different purpose to them.

if you own the mold, please, transform it a couple times and compare it to the pics of this guy. it transformers the same, the truck is the same, the arms have not been fixed (as in the elbows are the same) its planely obvious.... if this considered a new mold then weijang's optimus shouldn't be called a KO either. since that clearly had the same if not more changes compared to this "new" mold.

I really don't know why you can't admit you're wrong when the photos don't lie. These two don't have a single part in common, upscaled or otherwise, and the transformation is only similar, but has a bunch of key changes. The arms don't even transform the same way anymore with more compact forearms and shoulder pads that are their own part rather than sculpted on. The truck has a bunch of new parts not found like the chromed portion on the back of the cab and the entire back end near the trailer mount.

I do own the mold, and that's why I know its not the same mold.

Do you not see the difference in shoulders, the difference in where one set of wheels ends up on the thighs instead of the lower legs, the difference in back panels. Feet are different, head is different, the upper legs are similar but clearly not the same, the lower legs are different. He has hinges on his side view mirrors. Hands are different. Forearms are different.

Yes, there are similarities in transformation, and engineering, its the same truck mode, transforming into the same robot mode sure, but the overall mold has very little of the Voyager Evasion Mode Prime.

That's like saying these 2 are the same toy, and Leader Class Megatron is just upscaled from the voyager toy.
