I had some nitpics about him (and with how WE are, I'm shocked no one else echoed them) but I gotta say now... I'm completely enamored

He keeps looking way too good not to. I placed my pre-order a bit ago, and each of these new images keeps reminding me I did make a good decision

The bigger news so far, in terms of our interests, comes from images shared by Twitter user 7777_diver, featuring the latest Beast Wars Masterpiece figure in the Takara Tomy stables: MP-41 Dinobot! You can see the grey prototype of the figure in both raptor and robot mode, accompanied by its accessories, and previous Beast Wars figures such as Legends Rhinox and Rattle / Rattrap, MP-32 Beast Convoy / Optimus Primal and MP-34 Cheetus / Cheetor. Check them our mirrored below!

I was about to say, because it's made from raptor tail vertebrae, but that's the old toy guy in me talking. Yeah interesting. You can see it's silver on the box right behind him, and I do remember it was super shiny in the show.shajaki wrote:Why is his sword not silver?

Thinking back to seeing accessory shots... doesn't he come with two swords?

It's not silver there either though...
You can make out the box though a bit, Sure looks silver there!

The first set of news comes to us from Seibertron himself, where an email from Amazon Japan says that Dinobot has been delayed slightly, from July 31 to August 3, which makes sense seeing as how Dinobot would be released on a Tuesday instead of a Friday if they stuck with the original release date. You can find the quoted email below.
The second piece of news comes to us from Weibo user Samuel 1230, who has a new image of Dinobot, presumably from the Shizuoka Hobby Show, where many new Masterpiece figures made their debut. You can check out the new image, including a slight zoom in on the figure, below.
What do you think of the slight delay? Is it gonna drive you nuts to have to wait a few more days for your Dinobot? Let us know in the comments section below!

It's also hard to tell how much of that darkness is from reflection in the display shots. It does have the brown tint in most stock photos so it's more likely this was a miss guided attempt to blend the reflectiveness from the cartoon and the flesh tones from the figure for whatever reason.
