After the latest news about the character - his appearance in the Kabam Studios Forged to Fight mobile game, reported here - we have another update on the next figure in a high-end collectible toyline from Takara Tomy Transformers: Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot, the third of the Beast Wars character to receive the plastic incarnation treatment!

While we still have very little news about the fan-favourite Predacon turned Maximal, Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook brings us a release date and a price - and you may not be happy about the latter. According to their source, we're looking at 28000 Yen (approx 245 USD at the time of writing), making it the priciest MP figure to date, due in July 2018. What do you make of this new information? Is it a turn-off? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Takaratomy Transformers Next Masterpiece

We have a confirmation on the coming up Transformers Masterpiece MP-41 will be the expected Dinobot from Beast Wars. But there is surprising pricey on him as we have been told the Retail Price is 28,000 JPY!

Meanwhile, we are not sure how big Dinobot will be or just Takaratomy send out a wrong information on the price. If this is the final case, Dinobot will be the most expensive MP so far.

Price: 28,000 JPY
Release Date: July, 2018

Well that is a massive deal breaker, if true. I won't even pay that for superior 3rd party product.



It has to be an error.

We are waiting for other sources to confirm what the situation actually is, but that is currently the price reported by all retailers carrying the figure.

Hell no. Only time I've paid that much was either a 3P combiner, or TM3 Megatron. And even then, they were a rarity because it was my favourite combiner and a Beast Wars botcon that was the last one. But for a regular MP release? Unless it comes with a full sized Axalon control room diorama with tables and chairs, all interest in this has gone instantly.

If they are keeping Dinobot in scale with the other MP figures, he should be a head taller than MP Primal... but... yikes. I don't see that causing such a price hike. What are they expecting to include with him, a MP Rattrap to ride on top of him???

Megatron was that price so he’s gotta he that big. I mean he is dinobot after all and he better come with a slew of accessories. His blaster from code of a hero, swappable bartle damage, golden discs etc

Maybe he'll come with his full-size clone who transforms into a wall mount. :P

BBTS has their preorder up at $249. I assume that's based on the same info Takara sent other retailers.

Unless Dinobot is as complex a figure as MP Megatron I can't see any justification for that price. If this is the new reality for Masterpiece figures, I'm out.

Gonna go ahead and echo what everyone else is saying: unless there's some kind of an error or he really does come with some amazing accessories, I'm out. Shame, too.

It has to be some kind of mistake. Surely they can't charge such prices for a figure that will be slightly taller than MP Ironhide?

Maybe he’s life-size.
Like, the size of a real lizard chicken.
:P

I'm really looking forward to how this is justified.

I mean, just think of the price point MP-10 is/was at... And all the stuff he came with. He better come with EVERY accessory ever seen in BW :roll:

they did this because they can. they got away with mp 36, and thought "the fools actually buy this stuff for $200+". if people blindly except it and pay the prices, takara will keep doing this.

If he were a real Velociraptor, yes. But Dinobot is based on those from Jurassic Park, who are more similar to the taller Deinonychus. The real animal was still only about half human sized however. Coincidentally, Utahraptor was unveiled a few years prior, and was roughly the height of a standard human. Food for thought :lol:

Pages of people tapping out over the price...but how much you wanna bet this thing sells out upon arrival? Then the restock sells for $270 and everybody on here bites the bullet. Thats what happened to me for MP-36. Good thing im not a hardcore BW fan. Im done with MP unless they come out with Blitzwing, Astrotrain, Reflector, or the Insecticons. (Or more Yes Model seekers lol)

For that price he better come with Rat Trap and Rhinox.

And a steak dinner.

Mmmmm, Steak dinner :x

But really though, that is an insane price. Surely he is not more complex than Megatron, and if he is, that is ridiculous.

Even though I'm not worried at all about Dinobot, the price makes me wonder what they are gonna charge for Megatron.... :BANG_HEAD:
