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.
