Takara's Transformers Masterpiece MP-50 Tigatron is now available on Amazon Japan at the lowest price we have seen so far, 17259 Yen (167.93 USD). It will be released September 30.
The listing also has a list of accessories and official images. It is amazing to think that the images of the robot mode below are of the actual toy and not the CG model. The mold is completely new, and the beast mode seems to suffer less than Cheetor's in terms of visible robot mode kibble.
The accessory list can be found below. The one that stood out to me most was the Megatron head cube puzzle, which we can also see in the images.

Set contents Tigatron (Beast Wars) body (1 ), Tiger Shot (1), Tiger Cannon (1), Hacking Device (1), Replacement Face (Angry) (1), Replacement Face (Sadness) (1), Replacement Face (Surprise) (1) ), Replacement face (hacking) (1), Megatron cube puzzle (1), Stand adapter (1), Instruction manual (1), Character card (1)

It's been a while since I've watched Beast Wars, but what episode is being referenced with Megatons head attached to Tigatron's chest?

It's not attached to his chest. It's the virtual cube puzzle Tigatron had to solve when he hacked into the Preds' base to learn about the alien Golden Disk in "Before the Storm".

It's from the season 1 episode "Before the Storm." Tigatron is sent to infiltrate the Predacon base to gather intelligence. Once inside, he uses that purple cable thing to hook himself up to a computer terminal, allowing him to navigates his way through the Predacon systems via a virtual reality type setup. It's in that virtual reality that he comes across a representation of Megatron's jumbled up face, which he then solves in order to access Megatron's secret files.

you know, it never occured to me until now that having a giant animal head on your chest seems really cumbersome. like, you wouldn't be able to do much of anything with that blocking your sight of everything below your chest.

Not gonna lie, that Amazon JP price is tempting me on him. and he looks fantastic!

He just seems a bit too big for me and my Beast shelf, even though his representation on my shelf is Tigerhawk

It's now 18,985 yen. WTF.

UPDATE: you can check out with that 18,985 price, but the confirmation reflects the original preorder price.

Damn. This figure is spectacular. It's almost too awesome for Tigatron. Just incredible. I think the Masterpiece Beast Wars figures have become my favorite Masterpiece figures because they are so evocative of what they look like on the show. Awesome for Beast Wars. Not so awesome for G1.

I'm really struggling with this one. I want him, but I'm finding the price tag hard to swallow for a figure i sort of already have a good representation of

Except that that representation is a cat-bird mashup thing that doesn't really show him as a separate entity :P
The original regular Tigatron toy's not a horrible representation, mind you, cream-tinged though it is. There's a show-colors Takara version as well, although you'd be dropping MP levels of money on a Beast Wars Deluxe.

Except i am OK with Tigerhawk being both Tigatron and Airazor, they are what i consider a Fusion combiner, having them like that is the same as having a combiner and all of it's components, to me at least.

I'm not really a fan of how the original toy looks, and this one is great, but he's just not a character I feel the need to have, as great looking as he is

I agree. It helps that we already had an idea of them in three dimensions.

It also helps that since Beast Wars was in 3D, Takara's current design lead isn't trying to make the perforce 3-dimensional toys look like dumbed-down 2-dimensional images (which is what's happening to G1 MPs now).

Can you believe that the last we heard of this Masterpiece Tigatron was before the COVID 19 lockdown? Well, with parts of the world getting back to normal, there was actually a comiccon that Hasbro physically attended just a few days ago. And they brought in not only their products but also the products they are importing from Takara, such as God Neptune, Super Megatron and MP-50 Tigatron. Those toys were on display and you can see images of them below. Also on display was the upcoming MP Arcee, MPM Starscream, the Quintesson Pit set and basically the entire output of the year so far. The convention in question was the Hasbro Fans Expo in Hong Kong. The images came from Toyswalker, Hobymizer, and DMS Toys Treasure on Facebook.

Will this be posted in the other threads, considering it deals with figures from different lines?

Is it just me, or that new Megatron look absolutely MASSIVE? Glad I preordered him.

And looking at Arcee, I can now forgive her backpack after seeing the ER and Cyberverse version. It's still big, but very compact at the same time.

I see that I'm commenting in the MP Tigatron thread. I have no interests in that figure but I can tell that the fans of the character will LOVE him. He's big, and perfect looking in both modes.

Agreed about Arcee... I just wish they’d done something about her chest. It’s not even about the size.... just the awkward shape/alignment. Starting to think it was a compromise with it being the front fender, and how they set the shoulders up. Really wish they’d tried again.

I think its more the collar that's off putting about her, she can pull off some good poses though that can hide it
