Wonder Festival 2019 is live and we already have some epic news! The Beast Wars Masterpiece line is continuing with the next new mold of Blackarachnia! She is displayed in resin grey with a web that acts as a backer for the display stand. Her form looks to be her first one, the one used through much of the show until mid Season 3 when she went Transmetal 2. No word on price or date yet, read on to check out pics from the show thanks to fans on scene in Japan including @hdijanz, @Chohenken, and S250!
Transformers Beast Wars
Transformers news and info related to the Beast Wars cartoon and toys including the new Beast Wars Masterpiece toys.
Thanks to Twitter user @kamitosakura, we can share for you some great in-hand images of the new Encore Big Convoy for your viewing pleasure.
This new edition of the Cybertron (Maximal) Leader of the Japanese exclusive series: Beast Wars Neo, features cartoon-accurate colors like vibrant yellow in the shoulders and a clean and brilliant white on the body in robot mode and glossy brown and painted pupils on mammoth mode. The figure retains all their original gimmicks and accessories like the removable Matrix for Big Convoy’s chest.
Encore Big Convoy should be shipping any time soon, and you can still order this great mold via our sponsors below. Check out all the images attached to this news post and sound off on the 2005 Boards!
Robotkingdom has uploaded images of the packaging of the next Takara Tomy Encore reissue: Big Convoy, the fearless Cybertron leader from the Japanese Beast Wars Neo cartoon.
We had seen a small picture of the box at the past Tokyo Comic-Con 2018, and now we have clear shots of the packaging of this new entry in the Encore line. The box is largely the same as the original vintage release with updated Takara-Tomy branding and an extra badge denoting it as part of the Transformers Encore line. The back of the box shows some differences compared to the vintage box. The old box showed a nice CGI art with the Beast Wars Neo logo and some Japanese text below. The new Encore box reduces the CGI art to just a quarter of the back of the box, and now we have images of Big Convoy in both robot and mammoth mode, showing off the new cartoon-accurate color scheme.
This reissue is expected to start shipping on January 26th, 2019. Don’t miss your chance to grab this great mold from the Japanese Beast Wars line, you can still pre-order it via our sponsors below. Click on the bar to see the image and share your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
It’s that time of year and fan favorite Gary Chalk, aka the voice of Optimus Primal in Beast Wars, has graced us with a reading of a sweet Christmas tale, Beast Wars style! The Night Before Christmas, Beast Wars Edition was written by Candice N. Santora and Gary himself. It’s read beautifully by both Chalk and voice actor Richard Newman, aka the voice of Rhinox! We encourage everyone to check it out below. Hopefully David Kaye will bless us with some yule tide Megatron this year too, yessss.
Make sure to check out Gary’s Christmas message from 2017 too, right here!
It seems that the Encore Beast Wars Returns Convoy (Air Attack Optimus Primal reissue) is starting to surface in Asian markets.
Some in-package images have surfaced via Robo Robo, 頑童玩具 NAUGHTY GUY and Action Robo on Facebook. This new Encore release brings the original RID Supreme Air Attack Optimus Primal mold in cartoon-accurate colors, including new voice clips by the Japanese voice actor of the character.
We have a big windowed box that comes with the toy in robot mode, different from the original Hasbro release which came packaged in beast mode. The front of the box features the Beast Wars Returns logo and a small pic of the toy in beast mode in the lower part.

Kabam have delivered their November update to Transformers: Forged to Fight players, and we have a very nice addition to the ranks: Beast Wars Scorponok.
Scorponok is already available to be added into your ranks of playable characters since November 1st. Scorponok is coming in a fresh design, not so organic as we saw in the Beast Wars cartoon but sure cool and menacing.

Via Dengeky Hobby Web we have our first official images and information of the upcoming Takara Tomy Mall Limited LG-EX Blue Big Convoy.
This redeco of the original Beast Wars Neo Big Convoy mold was first shown on Display At Wonderfest 2018 together with the Encore Reissue of Big Convoy. It was unclear at that moment if the Blue Big Convoy figure was going to be released, but now we have a proper confirmation about it. Blue Big Convoy will be a special LG-EX release via Takara Tomy Mall.
The figure is expected for release late February, 2019 for 8000 Yen ($71.99 approximately). According to the description, it will be released in Legends packaging rather than an Encore release. This figure seems to be identical to the Lucky Draw Blue Big Convoy offered through a contest in TV Magazine in 1999. He was later later introduced in the E-Hobby comics as the Primus Vanguard Leader.

Thanks to 2005 Boards member HolyCulture we can share for you somein-hand images of Beast Wars Masterpiece MP-34S Shadow Panther.
Shadow Panther is a homage to the old Takara Beast Wars D-7 Shadow Panther which was a straight repaint of the first BW Cheetor toy. Following his predecesor, this is a black repaint of previous MP-34 Cheetor, and includes some extra accessories like a new battle mask (homage to the original toy), and a communicator arm band for robot and beast mode.
The images let us see some interesting and curious facts like the gray and silver paint details all over the figure, the collectible coin which has a Maximal insignia (even when this character is a Predacon), the bio card featuring the old Japanese Beast Wars art and more.
A remarkable detail is that Shadow Panther has a slight shoulder remold compared to the original Masterpiece Cheetor. The shoulder ball joints have been remolded with a raised hooked/clip area for a much better and secure connection as you can see it here.

Via Weibo user 蓝色正午 we can share for you in-package images of Beast Wars Masterpiece MP-34S Shadow Panther and the Collectible Coin included with this figure.
The figure is a black repaint of previous MP-34 Cheetor which includes a new battle mask (homage to the original toy), a communicator arm band and multiple face. Shadow Panther is a homage to the old Takara Beast Wars D-7 Shadow Panther which was a straight repaint of the first BW Cheetor toy.
The box features Shadow Panther in both modes in the front, while the back is similar to Cheetor’s box showing poses and all the accessories. We have our first look at the collectible coin for these Masterpiece. A cool cover which resembles a black panther head.
Shadow Panther will be a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive. It’s scheduled to be released late in August 2018 for 8,000 yen. Click on the bar to see the mirrored images and then join to the ongoing discussion on the 2005 Boards!
