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.

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

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

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

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

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)!

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

But man, it's gonna be a while before I can afford this.

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).

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!
