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.
Release Date: November 2019
Price Point: $79.99 (depending on retailer)
Retailer: Hasbro Pulse Exclusive Import (also sold at other import shops including TF Source and Ages 3 & Up)
