With a tweet, Takara Tomy Transformers has alerted fans and buyers to the official Takara Tomy Mall listing for the recently revealed Transformers Masterpiece Shadow Panther from Beast Wars, which is actually our first black repaint of the new animal based toyline, in this case Cheetor / Cheetus!

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade once more, we also have a whole new batch of images from the pre-order page, featuring higher resolution and better looks at all the accessories that accompany the toy, the two modes, its posability, the new deco, and some promo shots with the regular Beast Wars background. With its exclusive TakaraTomyMall, late August release for 8,000 yen (USD 72), will you be picking it up?

Just something to really set it apart from the original aside from just being black and silver.

I actually don't know about that. I guess it depends on how his bio will describe him: as (a relative of) Ravage, a Ravage wanna-be, or someone completely different. I'm pretty sure "Tripredacus Agent" will be name-dropped somewhere ;)

I'm loving the black, but I'm not a fan of how the mold looks

Just so I am clear, is he slated to, officially, be a Predacon? :PREDACON:

Follow-up question: Do we have any indication as to which faction is on Dinobot's packaging?

He always was.

In fact, Takara's original approach for the guy was, as stated in his bio, how he has the appearance of a Maximal but is, in actually, really a Predacon.

The official stock photos on Takara's website page for him uses a Maximal insignia as each image's background.

Hmm... Dang. I might display him with the Predacons just to start filling them out a bit. Especially if there is nothing on the toy, itself, that indicates his allegiance.

I may change that depending on the packaging, as well as what toys appear in the future.

Dinobot never wore an insignia in the show, so you're probably good on that front.

By "original" I meant the MP Cheetor figure, not Ravage. ;)

I would happily buy that, too. Heck, I'd buy another cat named Panther in this mold as well.

I really hope they don't just recolor Cheetor into Tigatron. Tigatron should be a heavy remold if possible, or an entirely new mold. Tigers aren't cheetahs
Entirely agreed. Besides, Tigatron is way bigger than Cheetor!

A nice piece of news today for those of us Transformers fans that live down under, as Toys R Us Australia has announced they will be stocking the upcoming MP-34S Shadow Panther from Takara Tomy! Thanks to a post on their Facebook, sent to us by our Australian overlord Burn, we know they'll have the figure and they will be accepting preorders until later this month on the 25th. This is one of the first times TRU Australia has offered preorders for an MP release, so it's quite a bit more convenient for collectors.

It's unknown at this time if TRU will stock this figure in their stores, but that question will probably be answered soon enough.

Before people in the west get too excited, Hasbro occasionally does this for TRU Australia with Takara MPs, even sometimes slipping an English version of the card into the box. Don't expect it to show up at any other TRU stores outside of the usual ones in Asia.

It was a bit more than "occasionally" and it was a bit more than the "card".

They imported them for a while complete with English translations for the instructions. The fact they're offering a pre-order is a smart thing considering how many of the MP's they stocked didn't sell. This way they won't be over ordering.

Oh, I didn't realize it was so often. I thought it was just Star Saber and a few other notable ones.

Star Sabre, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, Prowl, Bluestreak ... might have been others. I think they also stocked the Unite Warriors box sets. They've stocked a fair bit of TT when I think about it, but given their price jacking, it never sold too well.

Yeah, and what did I say?

[quote]I thought it was just Star Saber and a few other notable ones.[/quote]
I know there's been a bunch of them in the news, that's why I thought it was an occasional occurrence in the first place, but Burn seemed to imply it was even more frequent than that.

Sorry, I meant "bunch" as in a cluster of them (Bee, Tracks, and Sideswipe were all within just over a year time and then nothing), not as in a large number. That was bad wording, but you know what I'm talking about. What I don't know is what you're trying to prove. It's not like I said anything way outlandish, I just made a small understatement and Burn corrected me, that should have been the end of the discussion, so why are you suddenly jumping on me about this? :???:
