Voice actor David Kaye has taken to his Youtube page to grace us all with his annual holiday song as sung by Beast Wars Megatron. This year has a twist however, as his arch enemy Optimus Primal (aka Garry Chalk) posted his own holiday greeting a few days prior. In the video Mr. Chalk called out Mr. Kaye. So, enjoy the playful banter and delightful nostalgia as David Kaye responds in the video below.
Mr. Garry Chalk (voice of Beast Wars Optimus Primal) has sent a Christmas Wish to the Transformers Fans.
His message is also a reply to Mr. David Kaye (voice of Beast Wars Megatron) who inquired the whereabouts of Optimus Primal through his his annual Christmas Wish back in 2016.
David sang a Megatron-ish version of ‘Blue Christmas’ and Garry has replied this year with a wonderful rendition of ‘You are a mean one
Mr. Grinch Mr. Megatron’.
Check out this lovely video below.
P.S: Can’t wait to see how David Kaye will reply to this.
Via Weibo user 北马伊斯力 we have a very interesting set of new images of Takara Tomy MP-41 Masterpiece Dinobot images from the Transformers Generations 2018 book.
The new images show us the prototype in a very nice group shot next to MP Optimus Primal and Cheetor and the Generations/Legends molds of Rattrap and Rhinox. We also get views of robot mode from several angles, the way how gimmicks work like the rotating eyes in dino mode, weapon storage and the expressive faces for the robot mode (which seems to confirm an articulated jaw) but more remarkable are the scans of the transformation sequence that reveals the “magic” of this Masterpiece and all the effort and creativity shown by the designers.
We can see that the legs and belly section come down and wrap around the dino parts and the robot chest, head and back are all connected together. This is one of the most impressive and creative transformations we could see in a Transformer toy.
As an extra bonus, we also get images of the sketches of the toy and an interview with Dinobot’s designer (In Japanese). Are you impressed? Ready to add Dinobot into your collection? You can see all the images after the jump and then share your impressions at the 2005 Boards.
The Transformers Generations 2018 book has recently been released, and includes an interview with the designer of the upcoming Takara-Tomy Masterpiece Beast Wars Dinobot. In the interview, the designer notes that:
As for the Beasts Wars Masterpiece, I felt the first goal was Dinobot and the next one was Megatron, so I would like to do my best there.
While this does not confirm that the next Beast Wars Masterpiece will be Megatron, it indicates that as far as the designer is concerned, he’d very much like to tackle the big purple dinosaur with the famous habit of ending his sentences with yesss next.
This makes logical sense, as Beast Wars Megatron still remains to this day one of the best villains in all of Transformers, and one of the integral parts of what made Beast Wars so enjoyable – right after Dinobot himself, in fact.
Of course, we’d caution you that this is not a confirmation that Masterpiece Beast Wars Megatron is in the works, but rather a designer expressing his desire to tackle the character as a part of the Masterpiece line. Plans of course do change, and we’ve heard in the past how the designers for the Masterpiece line have wanted to tackle certain characters and concepts which have still yet to come to pass. So while Megatron makes sense to us as fans and there is a designer who wants to make him happen, it also needs to get through the business and budgetary side of things which so often throw a spanner in the works.
As always, keep it TFW for more news on all things Transformers.
Still enjoying the pictures and video of MP Dinobot? The excitement for this new MP release doesn’t end yet. We have now More Stock Pictures and 360 Turnaround Views Of MP-41 Dinobot.
The new images surfaced on Takara Tomy Website and we see Dinobot in some great dinamic poses, holding the golden disc and we have a clear view of the back of the robot mode which hides the panels of the Dinosaur mode, and makes fans wonder how the transformation sequence will be.
As an extra bonus, according to information shared by Hobby Dengeki confirms that the eyes can be adjusted in raptor mode and that his robot mode eyes can glow green or red.
It seems Takara is very interested in promoting this release and make fans get more interested in Dinobot. You can check the mirrored images after the jump and then sound off at the 2005 Boards!
Update: Even more extra images from Takara Tomy Q&A about Dinobot on their website.
Takara Tomy have released a video showing off the freshly unvieled MP-41 Masterpiece Dinobot. In it we see a couple more poses and comparisons with the other Masterpiece Beast Wars figures and just how show accurate he is. Check the video below and sound off on the boards!
Amazon Japan has (briefly) added (then removed) its listing for the upcoming Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot. The third Beast Wars character to get the Masterpiece series treatment, Dinobot is the most expensive Masterpiece release to date at ￥30,240 (or US $260).
What do you get for your money? A whole lot. We’ve got three alternate faces, the Golden Disc itself, and effect parts for Dinobot’s optic blasts, as well as his sword and spinning shield weapons which form his dinosaur mode tail. The robot and dinosaur mode are impressively detailed and accurate to the show, with a level of accuracy that blows this fan away. The dinosaur in particular seems extremely expressive. And this guy is big; as some theorized he’s the biggest Beast Wars Masterpiece to date, with last year’s Optimus Primal only reaching his shoulder.
What Dinobot also comes with, in a first for the Masterpiece series, is a modular display base, in the style of the chain bases marketed for the Gundam franchise. It’s undoubtedly part of what has pushed the price up (along with the light up eyes and actual spinning shield), and it marks an evolution in the growing idea of how Transformers could be displayed. We’d expect to see this base released individually later on, and we’d be okay with that.

Thanks to 2005 Boards member lord ginrai for sharing our first image of Takara Masterpiece Dinobot Prototype Image in our forums.
After several months, we finally have a close look at the actual prototype of the popular Beast Wars Maximal warrior. So far we had reported the first prototype of the figure which was shown on screen at Tokio Toy Show and the CGI renders from Tokyo Toy Show Booklet.
The image from Figure Oh! Magazine with a text: “Announcement next issue! -“Dah! I have become bigger and returned!” shows the upper body of Dinobot beast mode showing a nice amount of articulations and sculpted skin. As usual with previous Beast Wars Masterpieces it really captures what we watched on the series.
Masterpiece Dinobot is the highly expected third character on the Beast Wars Masterpiece line after Optimus Primal and Cheetor. We are sure that we will be getting more information and details of MP Dinobot in the next weeks so stay tuned for our reports.

Last time when an unexpected concept art featuring Optimus Primal turned up for Transformers : The Last Knight, it left our fans asking for more. Artist Furio Tedeschi answered the call.
We now have with us, a closer look at Big Bot from Mr. Tedeschi; who shared the original artwork.
It certainly would have been interesting to see this concept on screen. It is very clear that the artist had given a lot of care and attention to convert this Beast Wars favorite to the Movieverse.
Check out the images, after the jump.
