Takara Tomy has posted new images of Masterpiece Shouki to its Transformers Twitter feed. These include a photo of the packaging for the figure suggesting it is packaged in vehicle mode (which makes sense given its more compact shape). We also get close ups of the figure showing its beautiful detailing and hinting at its complexity.
Images have appeared online via several Facebook groups showing off what appears to be a Masterpiece version of Shouki - the leader of the Trainbots from the "Headmasters" cartoon series. Along with his fellow Trainbots, he could form part of the Combiner, Raiden. This group of G1 toys was only released in Japan and thus far the entire group has not yet been updated outside of a Million Publishing exclusive of Shouki as a Classics Astrotrain redeco.
