The smallest gallery to share is that for the standard Masterpiece line. The newest entrant shown is the MP-17+ Prowl featuring animation-inspired deco and which it seems is due to get a same-month release by Hasbro going by indications from some of the US retailers. Also out at the show were Shadow Panther, with a copy of Cheetor out as a point of comparison. And rounding out the upcoming product was Dinobot, making most things around it look small. It seems that several other items were included in the display, but in the form of exclusives and other long-since released products to represent the line. You can check out the photos of the newer products below.
has just released the first images of MP-34S Shadow Panther!

has posted new Figure-Oh
) scans to Facebook! The MP-41 Dinobot hype continues - and continues to look largely deserved. The metallic blue on the figure is especially nice, and we get a larger copy of the pictures lining Dinobot up with the initial Maximal cast in both modes! Keep reading to see.

on Twitter, we find a Beast Wars callout on the side of the Titans Return
Siege On Cybertron box! While there is a Transformer with a Beast Mode - Pounce - and another that IDW gave a beast mode in Sins of the Wreckers
- Armada Tidal Wave - there are no characters from Beast Wars in the set. Is this just a way of keeping the trademark on the logo and the title, or is it a clue to the next boxset? Keep reading to see the photo!
Looks like it's Masterpiece Day! This photo just showed up on Imgur via Reddit user lacklustername
, presumably from the Tokyo Toy Show: a TakaraTomy slide showing off MP Dinobot! We got a look at the render version of the figure the other day,

As we come up on the last weekend of the month, it's time for new toys in Japan, and highly anticipated on that score is Masterpiece Cheetor. Twitter user @ZEAMTIGER has already gotten hold of Cheetor and has been sending out a variety of photos giving us our first real in hand look. Though right now no comparisons with MP Optimus Primal are shown, you can see Cheetor side by side with the Generations molds of Rattrap and Rhinox, showing how one scales well and the other... doesn't. The photos are mirrored in the album below, click through to take a look now!
Autobase Aichi has posted some small images of flyers being handed out today at Wonderfest. Much of it concerns simple things like the The Last Knight toys, the campaign to produce the Infobar licensed transforming cellphones, and existing Masterpiece products. But hidden in a corner is the one juicy nugget of new info. After perfecting their black magic transformation engineering tricks with Cheetor, Dinobot appears to be coming to Masterpiece, and there's no telling how they'll reconcile the show model's ludicrously incompatible robot and beast modes in a toy that has to actually work
. Keep reading for mirrored images.
Toy Fair wasn't the only thing expected today! In Japan, it's Sunday morning, and that means it's time for Winter Wonderfest.

The final installment of Magna Convoy's webcomic is up on e-Hobby's preorder page! Losing the fight with Straxus very badly, Magna Convoy is rescued by... who, exactly? It's the Sentinel Prime/Astrotrain body in blue, gray, and black with red highlights... and that brings to mind Energon

The recolor and headswap of Titans Return Alpha Trion is based on Beast Wars II's Lioconvoy, and is one in a growing series of recolors to represent the character.
