Fellow Seibertronians kurthy and shajaki have pointed us towards new images (thanks to Twitter user RYO) of the next Beast Wars Masterpiece figure from Takara Tomy Transformers, the purple leader of the Predacons himself, Megatron! What we get to see in the images - mirrored below for your viewing pleasure - is the accessories that accompany the release of the figure, including stand parts, shooting beam effect, hunting rifle (as seen in the 'Call of the Wild' episode of the animated series), some pose and size comparisons with Optimus Primal and Dinobot, plus a new look at how many parts of the figure are actually detachable - it's a lot.

Take it all in below, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

I wish I was a bigger Beast Wars fan, cuz this guy looks amazing. I hope we get some Armada MPs some day soon.

O--N--L--Y Downside: His elbows bend the stupid way. I get why... But I still don't like it. Hopefully there are enough swivels.

If you look in the second photo at his tail arm you can see that he seems to have two way elbow joints so he doesn't have the ****** curler arms

So it seems he doesn't come with the stand after all, just some adapters for Dinobot's stand. That's great news and hopefully will keep his price a little more manageable.

Ah that makes sense. At first I thought they were trying to give us the look he had when we see him in the first episode, which obviously doesnt work with that giant T-Rex head. But now I see what the point was. I hope those removeable pieces still latch on well and we dont have another Raideen from SOC scenario.

Think of it this way, When it comes to MP, HasTak has yet to significantly deviate from release dates. Therefore:

G1 - 1984 to 1990 - They haven't even finished 1984 yet #-o

G2 - 1993 to 1995 - A G2 MP figure does exist, so more are not impossible.

Beast Wars - 1996 to 1999 - They will shortly be Four characters into Season One. 4 of 14. Plus one redeco.

Beast Wars II - 1998 to 1999

Beast Wars Neo - 1999

Beast Machines - 1999 to 2000

Car Robots - 2000 to 2001

Armada - 2002 to 2003

Two MP G2 figures. Bee and Swipe.

Two BW repaints. Shadow Panther and Supreme Commander Primal.

He also has a removeable backpack that you need to achieve his alt mode but it does not stay on securely.

I said this earlier and I must reiterate: I think this release may be the Top Masterpiece we have ever gotten. He is meticulously perfect, and oh so good looking. Yesssssssssss

Ah I see, hopefully in megs case it attaches securely but it does raise the spectre of future qc issues.

And original G1 continuity ended in 1992 with Operation Combination in Japan which gave us Guard City, Battle Gaia, the Micromaster combiners, and re-purposed European Predators and Turbomasters.

Technically the Primal redeco counts as a BWII entry, as he appears in those colors in the Movie.
