New Masterpiece Optimus Primal Images Showing Color Prototype From Latest TakaraTomy Video

This morning on the ninth episode of TakaraTomy's Beast Wars anniversary video series, we've been treated to a look at the Masterpiece Optimus Primal prototype seen in color at Winter Wonderfest now in beast mode, as well as showing off its accessories and weapons in robot mode in color. The new images of the figure were shown off while Sumire Uesaka, voice of Q Transformers Arcee attempted to transform an original Beast Wars Dinobot in the inset window in the corner. We've got screencaps, so click through to have a look and find out more!

As usual, we're unable to offer an embed of the Youtube video due to region restrictions, but we were able to view and screencap it for you.

What looked like complex hand painting to simulate the fur texture on the arms and legs at Wonderfest now with these closer images looks to be some kind of fabric applied to the prototype. In certain images, edges of strips of the material can be seen. We don't expect this to be how the look is realized in the actual production pieces, but it's certainly an interesting approach for presenting a prototype and does bring us back around to the question of how they'll give the finished product the "texture mapped" fur it needs.

Also seen for the first time are the alternate faces, both robot and gorilla in color. The beast mode faces in particular seem to work a lot better having been painted and really begin to capture the character present in the old CG model.
