Here it is, the biggest news of the year, the full reveal of Takara's Transformers Beast Wars Masterpiece MP 41 Dinobot.
The Japanese preorders are now out so we know the full MSRP for those ordering directly from Takara and it is 28,000 Yen. This is exactly what was initially reported. Of course, those wishing to import it themselves may be privy to retailer specific discounts however as you will see below, this is a big boy, one of the biggest Masterpiece figures yet, and the shipping for such a box could make the total cost a wash compared to what a local collectible stores are selling him at (which is around $250 USD).

Now onto this amazing reveal. Below you will see images of this beast of a figure showing a robot mode which looks like it seriously cannot transform. A shot of him with the previous Beast Wars Masterpiece figures shows he is scaled proportionally in robot mode, being more than a head taller than Optimus Primal. However, a shot of him in beast mode reveals that the scale of the robot mode was clearly the priority here. You will let us know what you think about that. A listing from Amiami gives us a full list of his accessories which can also be seen in a shot below. These, along with the electronics, might help answer for the high price of the figure. He includes a modular base which seems to be the first in a series, similar to what comes with the new Machine Robo figures. You will see no mention of a different set of eyes for the raptor mode but that is because the eye changing gimmick is probably similar to MP Grimlock's where the eyes are not a seperate piece that must be removed to be changed. The full list of accessories will be found after the images that were found on the Snakas blog (initially originating from a now removed Amazon Japan listing).

This figure is scheduled for a July 2018 release.

What do you mean, meh? You're not from the Emoji movie, are you?

Masterpiece Dinobot looks great ... except for the glaring "hole" near his hips in Velociraptor mode. Other than that, he looks fantastic.

I would have preferred a smaller version of him though. While I know he was sometimes shown as being much taller than the other Maximals, I think him being just a little bit taller instead of a lot taller would have been better. The group shot picture is kind of hard to tell what's going on exactly because of the camera angle pointing upward and Optimus Primal being in an action pose.

I dont understand why people have such a problem with the price. Sure it's more than the average masterpiece but judging by the size he has to be at least as tall as mp Ironhide, maybe taller. He also comes with a ton of accessories and obviously an insane parts count and amount of engineering. Well worth it imo

Well, Looks amazing in Robot Mode. Looks a little panel-y in Raptor mode. The price is a bit high, even AmiAmi has the pre-order up for 21000 yen.

But considering its still quite a ways away, it gives me time to save up before actually pre-ordering.

Don't need a display base. Wish they had removed it to lower the cost.

DO, however, wish that it came with the second disc. Let me guess... the second will come with BW Megatron?

Holy fucking shit now this is a masterpiece! If they can pull Dinobot off this well BW Megatron should be a piece of cake. People complain about the him being panel-y but let’s be realistic, how much better could they have done in his beast mode for such TV accurate robot mode? Until it’s like 2050 and they release a new MP Prime that’s 110% cartoon accurate with that year’s modern engineering, this is just as good as it’s gonna get

Also are we probably not getting MP Rattrap and Rhinox because of their Generations toys?

Looks flaming spectacular. The dino legs/ robot arms look a little on the chunky side, but hell, it's still fantastic and totally worth it.

Hope they continue and do the whole season 1 cast. Probably never happen though.

I gotta bring attention to this: look how wide his torso is.

I'm left wondering... is he only going to look good at certain angles?
Other gripes... the eye beams are conjoined with a webbed look, and I really hope you can make his eyes green without said beams. Also, only one disc? He shoulda come with both because of their pivotal significance, or neither. Megatron stole the Golden Disc, and Inferno found the Alien Disc.

Other than that, I can't say I'm not floored. But I need to see some high res up close's of his face(s)!

Holy crap, that MP Dinobot! I can forgive all the panel lines for the dino mode because the bot mode is so perfect. Also, no feet on chest for the dino mode. And for once, the bot is BIG and not a flimsy deluxe. Cheat chest in bot mode? I forgive thee, OH noble warrior.

I dunno if I'll ever get him because he will be so expensive. But that BW MP will definitely be on my radar.

I think they will come. Especially Rhinox since the generations toy is way too small for the right scale.

What I find super cool is how that chest is not truly fake. Its his underbelly in robot mode, so a part of the alt mode (jut not the head).

Fellow Seibertronian shajaki has pointed us towards a new official video from the Takara Tomy YouTube channel, featuring the latest addition to the Transformers Masterpiece line: MP-41 Dinobot! Covering pretty much all of the images we've seen in the previous post from Amazon Japan - which you can check out again here - we get to see clips from the Beast Wars cartoon that inspire the figure's transformations passages, poses, and accessories such as the spinning tail shield, the sword, the swappable faces and Gold Disk, plus the laser eyes, the figure stand and some comparison shots with previous Beast Wars Masterpiece figures MP-34 Cheetor and MP-32 Optimus Primal (Beast Convoy).

Additionally, via the Takara Tomy website, a feature on the figure lets us know that the raptor mode does indeed have changeable eyes, the robot mode's eyes can be lit up green or red, and we get a better look at the back of the figure and the 'ladder magic' (we need a new name..) that hides the beast mode panels in robot mode.

Check them all out below, as we also get further confirmation that yes, the figure will cost 28000 Yen (approx 250 USD) and is due for release in July 2018!

Please support Takara by purchasing this item at PO release prices and not wait for them to go on sale! :PRAY: Takara's financial situation is quite bleak with them always in the red... make MP Dinobot worth their effort and give them a financial blowout by making him a successful MP release unlike poor old Tracks!

If Takara falls, we don't get our plastic ABS PVC crack anymore 8-}

As much as I want this figure, and I do very much, that price is simply far beyond what I'm willing to pay. 150 would have been far more reasonable.

July is a long way from now though, maybe something will change in that time. Either the price or my willingness to pay it.

Anyone else agree we need more sizzle videos like this one? Yeah, totally makes me want to purchase the figure. BUT! I won't. No attachment to the character or Beast Wars really at all. AND, even at the cheapest through AmiAmi at around $188 USD, nope. $150 is my limit on figures now a days. And even then it's gotta be something I reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally want.

I can't wait to hear from everyone that does pick this guy up how awesome he is! He looks incredible!!

This looks far better than I would have imagined!! Holy Sheet!!!

I am still really on the fence about the price though. That is just... I could somewhat justify MP-36 because he is the big con leader himself, but even though I do love Dinobot and need him for my Beast Wars guys, he is still more expensive than I really want to pay.

Argh, decisions.

I'm incredibly faithful to HasTak, but come on. Everyone's beef with this pricepoint is completely legitimate and justified. He shouldn't cost any more than Ironhide or Ratchet. And while I personally liked MP Tracks, peoples beefs with it were also legitimate.

But even though he's priced high, I bet there's enough people like me out there to support it. And let's not fool ourselves, Dinobot is probably the most beloved TF character outside of G1, and easily in the top 10 of all time. Mark my words, he will sell out.

Alright, I've been thinking a lot about this, and now that I've had some time to scope out some pics, I think that, like MP 36, this price-point might be a bit more fair than we're willing to admit.

First of all, have you seen this guy? He's made up almost entirely of panels - that are also pinned together, that's a huge parts-count, a lot of molds, and a ton of time on the assembly line, that's a lot of man hours spent designing and qc-ing him, then there's the electronics and his size, not to mention his complex paint job - which looks gorgeous. I mean, he's so complex, his beast mode feet swap places with his bot mode hands and conceal themselves in his biceps, and he still has this much articulation for gods sake! His torso might be weirdly deep, but this is truly a master-craft of engineering.

Posted by Evil Eye on November 13th, 2017 @ 12:05pm CST
Oh boy. That dino mode is like MP-36's back as an entire velociraptor. Now to be fair on Takara, Dinobot's onscreen transformation is literally impossible, and engineering it must have been a nightmare. I am also impressed at how accurate it is and how articulated both modes are, but...I dunno. At that price I just can't justify it. Plus, whilst I realize this is utter heresy, I've never been a fan of the organic/"furry" BW Maximal designs, even though I love the characters and adore the show. Like, I love the Predacons and I adore the Transmetal designs on both sides, but I just don't like the "realistic" DOHOHOHOHO beast modes that much to justify buying MPs of them. Espeically not £200+ MPs.

THAT SAID, if they do an MP of Blackarachnia I will buy the everloving slag out of it. For one, she's my favourite character (which in a show with as stellar a cast as BW is damn impressive), for another I've met Venus Terzo, who is absolutely lovely, and finally I actually really like her design, as silly as it was (those claws though, homina homina). Plus, being a massive spider as opposed to a real-world vehicle, she can fit in with basically any display and not stick out scale wise. Burgeoning MP collection? Sure, she's from the same continuity anyway so why not. Mismatched disparate CHUG collection? Yep, I see no problem, even (especially) if she's gigantic, a massive spider that dwarfs tanks would be awesome. Legends? Well, maybe that's pushing it a bit, unless whoever she takes an interest in has a thing for giantesses.

Hot, poisonous and deadly spider-waifu must be mine.

Plus, she'd be relatively simple to engineer, I just hope they stay away from tackling any of the impossible ones (terrorsaur, waspinator) for now and focus on the do-able ones. There's already a great template for rhinox and rattrap, Meg's would be super easy, and scoponk could just be an update of the original toy with better proportions - easy...

As for Dinobot's backpack, I'm more impressed they were able to cram so much inside him and that's all we got. I was more concerned about the back of his tail weapon looking like the Universe figure's, but it looks like they did a good job of blending it in.

Terrorsaur would be a challenge, but I think there are some creative solutions that could make him work. Waspinator should be fairly easy, the Deluxe Generations figure is a good starting point, but with an even more complex transformation and no flapping wing gimmick.

The price point on this one is upsetting but as has been stated, you are getting a whole lot of bang for your buck.

It is just such a well done looking figure from the pics that I couldn't pass this one up. plus the sheer fear of it selling out and not being able to get it at all.

I guess I will be packing my lunch for the next few months to set aside for this guy.

Terrorsaur (to be in scale in bot mode with everyone else) would be almost 100% impossible, because his beast mode is so scrawny and the wings are so large, I just don't think it can be done to the standard that TT is trying to set with the bw mp's, and I think TT's efforts would be best served rolling out a MP BW Megs (omg, if he's in scale with primal, he'll be huge :shock: )

Cheap is cheap! However you try to yoga it 8-} no need to split hairs why an item is cheap, a high podiatric diet is quite feeling anyway. :lol:

As for the price range....the R and D is the great mucho eater of the cost. Not to mention the materials (wished Takara's had ditched the electronics though).

And Takara would probably need to sell at least 4000 units to recoup the cost ( just like the upcoming Grand Maximus release). This part is relevant though as we have some idea on the real financial status of the company that does the heavy lifting providing us fans with our plastic crack.

Look at what happened to the JP company CMS? All gone and their pricing was also waaaaaaaaaay out there.

I'm gonna offset the cost on my PO with the credits I'm accumulating at Amiami(with my Arcadia SDF-1 coming among others 8 months from now)

Terrorsaur would be a challenge, but I think there are some creative solutions that could make him work. Waspinator should be fairly easy, the Deluxe Generations figure is a good starting point, but with an even more complex transformation and no flapping wing gimmick.

Yeah, I dont see how waspinator would be hard.

What I'm thinking is tha they might have make his alt mode just a little out of scale to give them some "meat" to work with. It might be possible to do some extreme wing origami to form part of the arms since they'd have to get the tiny wings onto them somehow and there isn't enough space to fake it. I was thinking that rather than hiding the pteranodon head they could use it to help fill out the legs instead. If done wrong he might end up fragile and full of panels, but the same can be said for Dinobot and Cheetor.

:roll: I really wish you'd drop this! Nobody is splitting hairs and my foot is not in my mouth. Every time you say "cheap" you just prove that you aren't capable of understanding the point I was making all that time ago. I'll say it again for the nth time: THE PRICE WAS NEVER MY POINT! Get it through your thick head and stop HARASSING ME about it every time I bring up AmiAmi. Burn told you once before to drop it so drop it. Next time I see you make a post like this I'm going to make a formal complaint against you so cut it out, you're supposed to be an adult so act like it.
