Pre-Order Alert: "Masterpiece" Blackarachnia Now Available for Pre-Order via US Retailers

After yesterday's awesome flurry of official photos featuring "Masterpiece" MP-46 Blackarachnia, U.S. retailers have surprised fans by putting up preorders overnight! Once upon a time, fans would have to wait for Japanese retailers or importers to list "Masterpiece" figures, but for a while now "Masterpiece" figures have become something of a joint effort between Hasbro and Takara Tomy, seeing release not only in Japan (and parts of Asia) but other countries as well!

About a week ago fans were treated to photos of "Masterpiece" Blackarachnia's beast mode from the 58th Shizuoka Hobby Show in Japan. Now thanks to Digitamin we have more photos to look at! These appear to be the official Takara Tomy product shots, but since they are not from an official source of course take these with a grain of salt.
