While Kingdom has come and gone from toy store shelves, Takara Tomy is nowhere near done with the new iterations of Beast Wars era characters! Leaked earlier this week but officially revealed today, Takara Tomy has revealed a new sub-series of figures they have dubbed "Beast Wars Vintage" (not to be confused with the Wal-Mart exclusive "Vintage Beast Wars" reissues). The first set of these figures feature redecos of Kingdom Megatron and Optimus Primal. The decos are based on the CG animation from the 90's Beast Wars show and the results look beautiful! You can preorder this set now on BigBadToyStore and Entertainment Earth (priced at $104.99 on both sites). The set is scheduled to ship between September to October 2023.
Check out the official information from Takara Tomy Mall (and translated via Google Translate) below:
Transformers Beast Wars Vintage BWVS-01 Eternal Beast Showdown
It is a confrontation set product of Cybertron commander "Convoy" who transforms into a gorilla and Destron's destruction emperor "Megatron" who transforms into Tyrannosaurus.
The coloring has been changed to a premium finish from the item released in the Generation series, and it is now available with special specifications that match the image of the main CG animation.
In addition, "Megatron" uses an open tooth-grinding face and is a specification that pays homage to the original toy.
In the closed box package, a reversible inner sheet is set that reminds you of the confrontation set box at that time, and two character cards are included.
