Are you curious as to how Takara's Transformers Masterpiece MP 41 Dinobot transforms? Well images from the new Generations 2018 book are out and we see that there was a portion dedicated to Dinobot shown in his unpainted prototype, which even covers the transformation. We only see it divided up into six parts which still leaves room for a lot of discovery for those looking forward to transforming him. We also see several features for the first time such as
- weapon storage in robot mode where you can stick his weapon on his back
- how to change his velociraptor eyes
- all potential face configurations

The six possible faces are due to his three interchangeable faces having mouths capable of opening and closing.
Below you can see all the scans related to this section which also includes an interview with the designer in Japanese. We also see once again how big he is compared to his maximal brethren, which seems to be the right scale. The scans were found on 北马伊斯力's Weibo page.

The extra two faces could also conceivably for a retailer-specific release. If the primary release is indeed four rather than six face, that would be my guess.

Or four faces could be a mistake. Or old/incomplete information.

Look at those arrows connecting three of the faces to three others. There are three faces, but all of them have opening/closing mouths.

There are only 3 faces. All of them have opening mouths you can see there's another arrow in the crease of the book.

For some odd reason this impresses me a lot more than the color images from a little while ago did. Course, that could just be because there are a lot more features shown here. Super stoked for this, even despite the price.

HasTak, you have regained your HONOR

Loopaza Megastore, on Facebook, has uploaded scans of the latest Figure King magazine (No. 238), which heavily features Mastepiece MP-41 Dinobot. We once again get a good sense of his massive scale in both beast and robot mode. We also get a good shot of him using the base and stand he comes with in robot mode. We also get to see the eye swtching gimmick in raptor mode, which we previously saw, but this time with a coloured model as opposed to just a gray model. We also see his 3 faces again. Remember that each of these faces has an open mouth so his range of expression is greater than any Masterpiece yet.
This collector's toy is due to come out in July 2018 and the price ranges from $200-250 USD depending on the retailer. Is anyone still on the fence for this toy? Let us know!

Huh. He looks even bigger in these pics :shock:

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 8-} :x

Those aren’t actually the newest, most accurate releases of Rhinox and Rattrap. You’d think they would be.

I did it, I preordered this figure. It was one of those you only live once moments.

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

still seems too tall for my liking, no way is he ever sitting on rat trap (even if it was the transmetal ratrap), looking forward to the photos of poor squished ratrap that hopefully some one will post :)

As we know, this weekend sees Tokyo Comic Con 2017 taking place in Japan, with Takara Tomy bringing its Transformers presence to the show in a multitude of iterations, toy lines, licensed products, merchandise and more - including the promotion of the soon to be available (in Japan) home release of The Last Knight.

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 get the feeling transforming this guy is going to be an adventure. looks like his side flaps turn inside out to form part of his robot legs, and his robot shoulders are the raptor's knees.
