Takara's Transformers site has uplaoded new official images of MP 43 Beast Wars Megatron which also include clearer versions of the images we prviously saw in the Figure King magazine.

We get a good look at the T-Rex mode and how its eyes can move and also how the pupil can dissapear when used in robot mode.

We also get a full designer interview, which Google translated for us below. With the knowledge that the MSRP is above $300 USD, how many of you are still as excited as before? And have any of you chosen not to get him? The Japanese retailers, like site sponsor HLJ, usually have them for less (leaving the importing costs for you to handle), but how much less would he have to be for those of you still on the fence? Let us know!



Q. What was the background of the commercialization this time?

From the very beginning, when the decision to release Beast Wars in the masterpiece series came out, there was a concept itself. Actually, the size of the convoy was also calculated back from the megatron, as we have created comparison charts of major characters at the beginning of the development of the convoy. So, I think that the size of the overwhelming megatron in the symbolic scene that the convoy throws away is reproduced.

Q. What is the point of the product?

Since the current masterpiece is aiming for the reproducibility as if it comes out from the TV, it is necessary to include "to incorporate the talking gimmick", "to reproduce the shape of the middle of the play" To realize mobility beyond common sense "was the point. Megatron is a character that towed the popularity of the work with the talk part, so we recorded a total of 30 kinds of sounds. The voice also contains the multiplication with Black Widow and Navigator, but Ichi push is the reproduction of the opening of 13 episodes. Starting with the melody called Jahn, "Wahaha, I am the destroying great megatron, it is the beginning of the beast wow!" And recorded until the song started. As the sound effect enters firmly into the chorus part, I would like you to take it in hand, remembering the animation of that time and get depressed.

Q. What was the hardest part of development?

The obvious difference between the BW version of the toy at the time and the play was on the back. It was the most impressive place behind the head, so it was the most difficult point at how to show this like a play. Since you can not change the area of ​​the dinosaur's gawa, it is hidden and reproduced by distributing with that hand. Even so, I have folded the leftover part on my back. Besides, BW version of toy at that time is changing for dinosaurs because of the circumstances that the knees are getting shorter, but in this masterpiece version we aim at a balance that does not feel discomfort in both dinosaurs and robots.

Q. What is the evolutionary point of the recent masterpiece series?

In order to reproduce it more thoroughly, it is possible to move to the place where you move the eyeball of the dinosaur mode. Since the head of the dinosaur mode is clogged with sound units, it has a minimum space-saving structure, but by making it movable, you can enjoy the change of facial expressions and the white eye condition of robot mode can be reproduced It is. In the fourth bulletin, the Destron Major corps destroyed megatron appeared, but I'd like to be able to arrange the main characters of Cybatron and Destron all together in a masterpiece, so please look forward to future developments as well.

I'm ordering him as soon as the preorders go live on HLJ, regardless of what he costs. Ordering 2 actually, because a friend also wants him. (same reason i've got 2 Dinobots on order).

Ultimately he is a collectors item and as he isn't an army builder I'm not going to be buying twenty of him. So as a one off item, to complete my MP Beast Wars collection, I wouldn't think twice about buying him. Also strictly adhering to the Season One cast, he is the plateau, no one else even approaches his size and scale.

Indeed. Second tallest to Megs himself. However, in terms of bulk, they are worlds apart. The only one even approaching the broad scale of Megatron is Rhinox. HasTak would be aware of that, so the price can only come down from here... At least for the rest of the Season One cast. They couldn't charge anywhere near this price point for Blackarachnia, Airazor or Rattrap, for example.

Sure, instead of 300$ for the other figures, it would only be 200$

the fact this thing actually costs $300 is freaking ridiculous..... takara has gone too far with its pricing... considering 2 foot tall transformers with MP level transformation cost less than this, just shows how much of a ripoff it is.... I really wish this would underperform sale wise simply to teach them a lesson on not inflating the price just cause its a popular character.

That is a beauty. I wonder if someone gets David Kaye to sign on this figure in beast mode, wouldn't that be a good collector's item. Or just the box. But seriously the eyes, the proportions. It's way above my budget, plus if I do get an MP it would have to be Primal first then this guy.

Much like how a camera adds 5 pounds, electronics like lights and sounds add $100 to any toy.

As much as I loved how dinobot and Megatron came out, I went back to my preorders and cancelled dinobot, and not getting Megatron. Man, I thought primal was expensive for animal transformers I do care about, but damn, it’s not getting any cheaper. Thought dinobot is the most they will go, so Preordered dinobot at over $250, and now saw Megatron for over $340 (with shipping). Forgetting. This hobbie is getting too expensive for me. So decided to re-evaluate my transformers spending, my new max spending is now under $160. No more Crazy expensive transformers and their rediculous prices.

considering that leader classes could fit electronics in and have great engineering yet be at 50 bucks or under, i call BS on this having an extra 100 bucks from electronics.... this is just takara riding off the popularity and trying to get as much cash out of its loyalists.
