You have to give it to Takara, they know how to be ready for an occasion. They are really taking the Beast Wars 20th Anniversary seriously and this latest action of theirs speaks volumes. Takara has just launched its own site for the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars. Of course, there is not much there yet aside from links to previous articles, such as the line drawings for Masterpiece Beast Convoy (Optimus Primal).

Also, it goes without saying that the site is in Japanese and features a lot of text in photos which cannot be translated. The videos are also region locked. This was brought to our attention by fellow Seibertronian, Primal Sabbath!

That site has even bigger looks at the MP Primal wireframes than we saw before!

Plus a giant pic of Primal's beast mode CG model (I never noticed that his eyes had little red veins in them):

Wow! That's so close I can see his panel lines! :lol:

But are those really his teeth? I think it's just the wire frame for his lips, otherwise he's all mouth plate and teeth.

Speaking of which, I really wish his bot mode had a changeable full mouth plate like he had on the cartoon sometimes and on the original figure. Amazon exclusive maybe?

Those feet really do look terrible from every angle.

In that case, I guess they aren't teeth. My mistake.

Cannot wait to see if we will get a BW MP Megatron and Dinobot as well.

Considering this is BW's 20th anniversary, I'd really appreciate getting both of the faction leaders in MP form. Not sure how good those chances are, though.

Either way, I'm really excited to see what Takara has in store for the anniversary.

WOW, Takara is taking this a lot more seriously than I thought. I wonder what's stored for us... :-?








AWESOME FIGURES! DUH.

Wasn't expecting a cameo from Voltron, not even Go Lion, but Voltron. Neat.

Having studied 3d modelling, I can say that, if it is a wire-frame, then, yes, those are the 'faces' forming the simplified curved surface of his lips.

Well, we have all year, and at the rate TT's been pushing out MP's, and the relative ease of designing an MP BW Megs, I'd say we'll see him at least.

Besides, it's not like they have to make him during the anniversary year, I don't care if they keep cranking these out over several years. Plus the actual anniversary in Japan is technically 2017 and that's to say nothing of the Metals, II, and Neo anniversaries so celebrate away, Japan!

Just to head off any possible objections, Easter lasts until May 15th, so, yes, that part of the announcement is accurate.

So, Google translates "Waspeeter" as "Waspinator" but leaves "Rattle" alone.

So far, Why there is no information about TransMetals ?

Didn't transmetals debut the year after? As in 1997 which would be 20 years next year.
