Toy News: Takara Tomy Reveals "Masterpiece" Nightbird Shadow

Takara Tomy Mall has posted its listing for the upcoming Masterpiece Nightbird Shadow! Nightbird Shadow is a redeco and retool of the Masterpiece Arcee figure based on the character who was first introduced in the G1 episode "Enter the Nightbird" (aka "The Shadow of Nightbird" in Japan).
