From the early 2017 installment of the Hero-X Generations
book, we saw pages talking in detail about MP-36 Megatron, both the prototype toy itself, as well as a few pages of sketches and design concepts. But it was all in Japanese and of little help to most of us elsewhere in the world. But now thanks to the translation efforts of Deruji
, as requested by Liampope
, an English edition is now available for all to read! Offering inisghts to how it transforms, the functions of the electronics, visual design ideals and more, there's a lot to see! We have the translated pages mirrored, so keep reading to learn more!
Dengeki Hobby has posted a set of images of MP-38! The curiously named "Legendary Supreme Commander" version of Beast Wars
Optimus Primal is revealed to be a reuse of the Masterpiece mold bearing the colors of the original Ultra-class toy with a couple new accessories - one of which is the original's Mutant Mask! The figure is priced at 12,000 Yen and scheduled for release in June. Keep reading to see!
TFSource have opened preorders for the MP-38 Masterpiece Convoy Beast Wars Supreme Commander Version. Takara says this is to be a beast wars figure and same price as MP-32 Beast Convoy so likely a recolor remold of some kind. We can only speculate what figure they will base off the mold until we know more.

However, this one carries a modifier that works out to the effect of "Legendary Commander", and that might be enough to guess what this is in absence of any photos. Meanwhile, MP-38 is listed at 12,000 Yen and is due for release in late June. Keep reading for speculation!
Having obtained an early sample, "Warden" on Weibo has posted some photos to show off the upcoming TakaraTomy Masterpiece Dirge. Largely this focuses on group comparisons. Along with basic looks at the Conehead team, and the full set of six G1 original Seekers, there's a handy side by side showing MP Dirge alongside a selection of unofficial alternatives, including Toyworld's latest efforts. Dirge is still a while off, so this will serve as a good preview of what to expect when it's released in a few months. Keep reading!
