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!
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.

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.
