    Yeah, Primal's the perfect size if we're ever to get more BW MPs.

    We will never know what TakaraTomy is always up to, so there is still possibility though.

    No. I wonder if they'll look the same as the rest of the line or they'll have more resemblance to the original Beast Wars packaging.

    BW MP's won't have diecast for continuity reasons. Diecast constructicon is a lost art in the BW cartoon.

    As far as the packaging goes, he has a nornal number so he'll have standard packaging, with the BW anniversary logo taking the place of the licensed car logo. That's my guess.

    First picture of the packaging! Looks great!

    The Transformers logo is green, it has the Japanese BW logo, the reptilian eye from the classic BW cards, a Maximal insignia and the new BW 20th Anniversary logo!

    That's so awesome! I'm really thinking about displaying the packaging alongside the figure now.

    Oh, man. I haven't been excited enough to buy any Masterpiece figures before, but I don't think I'll be able to pass up Primal and Cheetor. They both look absolutely fantastic!

    Just like you, I feel they nailed the box art. I personally display the boxes on top of my shelves. Takara could have changed the entire color of the box, but they went the classy route, and provided us that clean Black box, with all the BW's attitude !

    Can Hasbro top this when they release their version ? Who knows, but don't care.

    Same here, didn't think I could be won over so much by MP packaging. Seeing that green beast eye triggered a massive wave of nostalgia for me, from opening my first BW off of the deluxe card (Buzzsaw ftw) to the BW opening theme.
