    Just gonna leave this here as well:
    The text explicitly states that the main selling point of this release is that it is a completely new mold. (マスターピース化にあたっての最大のポイントは、完全新規造形のボディ).

    To be fair, even if they reused elements or design portions, it has to be a new mold entirely - he's physically bigger than Cheetor. His parts can still be upscaled yet also be new mold, which also is part of the higher cost, I imagine.

    The cord? I think that's the cord piece that he used when he infiltrated the Predacon base and found what the disks contained.

    Whose gun is Dinobot holding there?

    I would love to get a masterpiece Wolfang. I know he never made it into the show, but he was supposed to. He was my first and to this day remains one of my favorite transforming figures. They could use the drawing on the card/box as inspiration to make him more "realistic"/fit in with the rest of the line. But I'm sure that is one far-flung fantasy!

    Honestly, I would LOVE a reinterpretation of Wolfgang. It's a good figure, but kinda weird. He's kinda stalky, and his face is weird. But I think a reinterpretation in the style of the show, the way they reinterpreted all the characters, would be awesome!

    I feel the same way about K-9 the same way you feel about Wolfang. K-9 is just a repaint, but still! I really liked those figures.

    The ones who weren't in the show: K-9, Grimlock, Snapper, Razorbeast, Clawjaw, Retrax, Manterror and Spitter I enjoyed a lot growing up. Would love all/any of those. I am sure I am missing a few off hand. Some had interesting transforming mechanics too that I felt separated them from the others.

    Now that we have Tigatron coming on our way, let's just hope TT finishes the season 1 line up. At the same time, let's hope 3rd party companies like JX continue on making season 2-3 characters aka the Transmetals and Fuzors. We don't need everything from TT

    Any guessimates when I should be expecting MP Tigatron preorders to hit Amazon Japan? Don't they coincide with the release of one of the toy magazine publications or something?

    Yes, please. I need a Rampage after that Tigerhawk.

    I have a feeling Takara will be jumping around. I'm curious what they would do with BWII Galvatron, since he's a triplechanger.

    Poo Galvatron would be sick! MP-48 needs an MP Galvatron definitely.

    I'd be hesitant to expect a MP BWII Galvatron. The guy has had zero update or homage figures in twenty years, which does not speak to any popularity. I think if Takara wants to do a BWII bad guy, they would do much better to look at Megastorm, who will also attract the G1 MP collectors who can repurpose it as G2 Megatron (though it will be too short), and of course the odds are decent that Takara will release a G2 Megatron version of it anyway.

    Im thinking after the response to Lio, it wouldn't be that wise to sit on Big Convoy or BWII Megatron in lieu of less popular or in demand . characters. Either one of those right now is a no-brainer for Takara.

    26,400 yen.

    EDIT: My bad, I guess that's the price with tax. The 24000 price posted below is more accurate for buyers oitside Japan.

    thanks! it's offered here in PH for 175. good price or should i wait for it to drop?

    just realized. tigatron's release makes legends rhinox out of place ( in terms of scale) which kinda gives me hope that theyll give us mp rhinox

    Legends Rhinox has always been out of place (in terms of scale), meaning you should have always had hope they'll give us MP Rhinox.

    well im not that optimistic. hahahaha. i usually accept what they are giving us. i know he is too small and at the same time i used to think that takara wont complete the line... but now im starting to see that they might actually give us the full season 1 cast because of tigatron. he he he.

    Hope they focus on the preds after tigatron or just give us airrazor or terrorsaur. they gotta update the our basics class fillers
