MP-41 Beast Wars Masterpiece Dinobot Release Date Changed
ExVee - Tuesday, May 15, 2018


According to an e-mail being sent out by Amazon Japan, the originally planned release date of the upcoming MP-41 Masterpiece Dinobot is being changed. Customers with Dinobot on preorder with Amazon Japan have been receiving the notifications advising of the delay in arrival from the originally planned release at the end of July. Click through to find out more!

According to Amazon Japan, Dinobot has been pushed back from Tuesday, July 31, to Friday, August 3. A small delay, and one that may have been in the cards all along. While not unheard of, it's fairly unusual for new Transformers product to go out for sale early in the week like that. Amazon's July 31 date may have itself been the result of a "best guess" situation on Amazon's part going by a "late July" delivery estimate from TakaraTomy. In fact, the TakaraTomy Mall page for Dinobot still points to Late July for the release of Dinobot - specific shipping dates are usually added during the final month before a new product is released. In this case, Amazon Japan's August 3 may be our first sign of a specific date being attached, if TakaraTomy is beginning to inform retailers that the release is being pushed back from what could have been planned as a launch on July 27, a Friday.

Of course, the reasons here are largely speculative based on typical patterns. We'll of course keep following developments on this between now and early July when we should have specific information direct from TakaraTomy Mall about the planned date.

Masterpieces continue to climb in price, and so far the Beast Wars lineup has stood even that much higher than comparable Autobot or Decepticon releases. While it's still my person belief that the upcoming Megatron will not exceed the 25,000 Yen price tag that Dinobot will be launching with come the end of July or so, it's very likely to be right there alongside among the priciest of Masterpieces. Accessory inclusions are often a way to make a steep retail price easier to accept, but what could we see included with Megatron? Keep reading for some ideas.
Joining Cordon with a brand new product page on TakaraTomy's website today is the TakaraTomy Mall exclusive MP-29+ Shockwave, featuring a new deco inspired by the original toy, rather than the cartoon appearance. Sadly while Shockwave has a similar offering of turnaround "360 view" photography, these photos are of a much smaller size than Cordon's. But if you're looking for how the deco was handled from a particular angle, these should still have you covered. You can find the whole batch of both robot and gun mode photos mirrored below.
TakaraTomy has added a product page to their website for the recently announced MP-42 Cordon. While many of the images on the page are the same stock photos we've already seen, new to this posting is the set of "360 view" photos showing the figure in each mode from multiple turnaround angles. Sadly the amount of black on Cordon makes it fade a little too much in with the dark background, but this still affords some nice extra looks at Sunstreaker's retool. Click through to check it out!
Takara Tomy Mall updates with newer official images the Transformers Masterpiece MP-42 Cordon figure that is a MP style remake of the Diaclone New Countach LP500S Police Car. These new images are bigger and provide a good look at the retooling, and other additions as well confirmation the figure will include its own unique arm-weapon that is different from the Sunstreaker edition. Look for MP-42 Cordon to be released in Japan late October 2018 for a price of ¥16,200 JPY / $148 USD. Read on to see the translated product information and images.
Amazon Japan has updated a ton of product pages today, and among them is the just-announced recolor of Masterpiece Sunstreaker, MP-42 Cordon! Sporting a new lightbar - well, technically two, one for the chest and one for the car - Cordon also has a new headsculpt more in tune with the original toy than Sunstreaker's animation-inspired face. Keep reading to see!
