    I wonder if we're EVER going to get official Masterpieces of Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge.

    After all the TFTM1986 stuff they've been doing lately, these should be just around the corner right?

    Maybe they'll announce them after Unicron is released?

    ....WOW....

    Arcee looked odd before in the chest, but these shots show that her breasts form a literal shelf where they suddenly jut out...

    I expect better articulation from a Masterpiece than what that Tigatron has... look at those crappy front legs! Screen accuracy is also not a boon here, since let\'s face it, by today\'s CGI standard that tiger mode was deformed and flat looking. 
    Quintesson Pit is great. So this means Japan will get that somehow? LIkely TakaraTomyMall exclusive.

    Huh? Tigatron's articulation is fine.

    I dunno, man. Tigertron looks like he has the same articulation as Cheetor, if not a tad better cause of the larger scale; and Cheetor is one of the better MP in that aspect. Matter er fact, I seem to remember ALL articulation getting an upgrade during that era (Infern/Grap, Meg, SunStreak). Tigertron should be fine.

    But yeah, beast mode has always been a challenge to clean up, even when they were standard toys.

    Yeah, Articulation on Tigaton looks great from what we have of actual Takara photos

    ...Whoever it was that "posed" that Beast-mode Tigaton in the Display, and thought "that looks good" needs to be slapped upside the head! :confused:

    Imo God Neptune looks way better in person. The pics made the white plastic look soapy like WFC Apeface...

    I was thinking about cancelling my pre order as I only got him not to miss out since I was able to get all the Seacons on the Pulse second restock. But now I'm going all in he looks great!!!

    He's literally mistransformed and in a terrible pose. Take a look at all the other pics of the beast mode.

    I can't afford any of these MPs, but knowing how they scaled down the G1 cast for WfC so far I'm hoping we get that same approach to BW in Kingdom. Because that beast mode looks great.

    I know what you mean, it also serves as evidence how overpriced MPs are.

    I don't think MPs are overpriced. I think the engineering to make them as animation accurate as we've seen (Prime 3, BW MPs) translate to tons of panels.

    Those don't come cheap.

    So, nothing new revealed here either? Guess we need to wait for the virtual SDCC or whatever that’ll be

    That was several days ago.
    They had it on the regular SDCC dates. Ended the 26th.
