Winter Wonderfestival 2020 is about to kick off in Japan – and already we’ve got some potentially awesome news. Via long time TFW2005 informant S250, we have some photos of displays at Wonderfest.
The first one shows a group of Season 3 Autobots. Masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Hot Rod are visible, along with Legends Blurr, Siege Springer, and a large, unidentified Arcee toy. The display case also has a large banner of Arcee next to it with the Transformers 2010 logo (Transformers 2010 was the name for Season 3 in Japan in the 1980s). Could this be a hint at a Masterpiece Arcee, coming our way in 2020?
A second image shows a similar large banner featuring Beast Wars Maximal Tigatron – and if you look on the left of the image of Arcee, you can also glimpse a new toy of Tigatron. In our minds, this is solid evidence of a Masterpiece Tigatron coming our way in 2020, potentially reusing the Masterpiece Cheetor mold.
[EDIT: Text on the wall size posters confirms that MP-50 will be Tigatron (Beast Wars), and MP-51 will indeed be Arcee. The poster also announced that preorder for these figures will start in Spring 2020]
What do you think of this news and the potential for two new Masterpiece Transformers this year? And what do you think of the choices of Arcee and Tigatron over more established characters such as Rattrap, Kup, or Galvatron?
