While the 2018 Tokyo Toy Show showed the reveal of a new Transformers Masterpiece figure (Prime 3.0) and our first look at Masterpiece Beast Wars Megatron in colour, it did also have Masterpiece Dinobot on display. While it is not a new figure, it did give many attendees the chance to take some really close up shots of him at all conceivable angles. The shots below give us the best look yet at the figure where we see the intricate raptor scale sculpting all across the tail. We also see how the tail folds to give us his spinning weapon and we get a great look at this sword which is indeed a nice shiny silver. This toy is due out at the end of next month and preorders are currently sold out on many online stores. Were you able to secure yourself one? Let us know what you think of the toy in the comments!

I've never cared for Beast Wars or it's character designs (which I find very unappealing) but I have to say these look really well done and should please the Beast Wars fans (if they have good jobs or lottery wins or are just very good and patient at saving up)

Looks like the slightly tinted sword is here to stay.

Looks pretty much silver chrome to me in several shots.

But chrome has a tendency to reflect things so from most angles its reflecting either the yellow back light or Dinobot himself, giving it a slightly tinted color.

In person it should be perfectly silver.

Whilst I'm probably not going to buy him (I just can't justify a whole BW MP collection as much as I love BW) he does look awesome. Monstrously fiddly, but awesome.

MP BW Megatron on the other hand, I might have to get. Partly because he looks so goddamn good and partly because it's BW Megatron.

I'm specifically looking at pics like these where the sword guard has a slightly brownish color to it where it isn't reflecting the green lights.




That's not too far off from the most recent pics we saw.

It does look like a combination between the original beige/skin tone of the Toy Sword and the chrome of the show. I don't have a problem with that if that is the case. I doubt such colouring would be used otherwise. I imagine the possible retool MP Grimlock will have a shiny pure chrome sword though.

If Dinobot's eyes don't shoot lasers it will be a very bad missed opportunity.

There is an attachment confirmed ;)^

Odd he doesn't seem to come with any Battle Damaged parts :-?

It would be awesome if he came with the big guns and bullets that he used every so often. MP Megatron and MP Prime come with accessories galore. Send some love to Dinobot.

That big shotgun he used in Coming of The Fuzors would be awesome.



Maybe MP Rattrap will have it?

That's the look I'm taking about! And a Rattrap motorcycle accessory too!

Not sure why he would. Unless I'm forgetting something the only MP currently with battle damage parts is MP-36 Megatron.

It is his most iconic story (considered by some the most heroic death in all Transformers) and he had no other forms in the show IE a one and done figure. As extras go, you would have thought as they gave him the Golden Disk, they would have given you more props to reenact his final scene.

The laser eyes are awesome and, for me, unexpected. Glad they are doing these so well. It does surprise me however that Dinobot and the rest of the Beast Wars are getting the MP treatment before THE Dinobots. Grimlock needs his buddies.

Maybe so, but do you really want this figure to be even more complicated and possibly effect its stability just to add some battle damage from one scene? I doubt its worth it.

MP Grimlock has been on his own for nearly ten years. In the general MP thread, I've made no secret of the fact I think HasTak's cherry picked MP releases make no sense.

HasTak: "Upset there is only one of five Masterpiece Dinobots? Don't worry, have Another Prime" :roll:

An extra face and detachable chest panel would suffice, without adversely affect the figure's stability. I mean the only reason I could see them not adding it is if they plan to make another Dinobot figure. Which seems unlikely.

Looks a little like its reflecting Megatron's glorious purpleness.

But I'll grant you it may not be 100% silver upon closer inspection. We'll have to wait and see.

why not? they did it for MP megatron. his damaged parts are straight from the movie where he fights optimus.

I think it looks more silver.

Battle damage.... I could only see being done as a completely separate (variant) figure.

And as for THE Dinobots, once they are picked up again, it won't be with Swoop/Sludge/Snarl/Slag. It'll be Grimlock. He's popular enough to warrant a new mold, and needs it anyways to fit with the cartoon accuracy direction.

Maybe not all the Dinobots are as popular as Grimlock, but I think Swoop is plenty popular, and the Dinobots as a whole would be popular enough. It seems that collectors want all five Dino's because you need to complete the pack. I would be happy with just Swoop, but I would really like all five.
