Via regular source of news Weibo, and its user 蓝色正午, we have some in hand images of the packaging for the Takara Tomy Transformers Beast Wars Masterpiece MP-34S Shadow Panther! You'll remember that the figure is a black redeco of MP-34 Cheetor, with the addition of a new battle / mutant mask, a communicator arm band and swappable facial expressions. The character of Shadow Panther is a homage to the old Takara Tomy Beast Wars D-7 Shadow Panther, also a repaint of the first Beast Wars cast member toy - our gallery can be seen here.

Also included below are images of the collector coin available to some markets, and its packaging. Check it all out!

I'm not entirely pleased by the alt. mode, but having MPs of non-show characters is definitely neat... even if probably they'll release only those that were repaints of major characters.

Speaking of which... no plans for a re-release of Cheetor? It's the only BW MP that is almost impossible to find at a decent (honest?) price.

I'm liking the contrasting paint apps to Cheetor. I think I'll display him with the Mutant Mask though. To differentiate him from Cheetor and because he isn't a "real" character, so he could look like anything regardless. The mask seems more fitting for a Predacon face, as only Megatron and Terrorsaur ever had standard faces.

He arrived yesterday and I am very pleased with my first BW MP redeco. The problems I had with Cheetor seem lessened by a more understated and uniform colour palette. The Mutant Mask is actually the best face sculpt he has. So shiny, it suits the change in aesthetic more so than the standard Cheetor faces. Of course the altmode isn't a panther, but in my case that comes down to nitpicking as I didn't really like the articulation proportions of Cheetor's Beast Mode either.

Very pleased with the first MP Predacon overall. Cheetor is still my least favourite MP Beast Wars figure so far.

In the end, I did find a picture to illustrate what I was saying. The Mutant Mask as the default face for Shadow Panther. It really suits him much better than the Bot faces and aesthetically gives him a bit more of an individual identity, other than just being a black Cheetor redeco.

It also fits with how all the first-year Deluxe Predacons used their mutant heads as their default heads in the show while all the first-year Deluxe Maximals used their normal heads.

About Shadow Panther, how is the paint chipping on him? No one has ever answered that question for me. Is it more like Cheetor, or is it like Dinobot?

Personally I've had none. Granted I don't play with my Masterpiece figures. He has been posed in the same way on the same shelf since I bought him.

Not even once transformed this guy? Well, more power to you for avoiding the issue altogether! ;)

Absolutely not. I transform them once out of Beast Mode into Bot Mode and there they remain. Dinobot, for example, was enough hassle to transform without a repeat performance.
