FIRST LOOK – Beast Wars Masterpiece Dinobot Design Models

Tokyo Toy Show is still in progress this weekend in Japan, and thanks to Alfes2010, we have the first look at Masterpiece Beast Wars Dinobot! Right now it’s just a poster showing the robot and dinosaur modes in the form of CG design models – basically a rough draft to help determine how everything will work, before additional styling and refinement happens. And even now seeing a representation of how this will take shape as a toy, it’s still a mystery just how the transformation is going to work and deliver two show accurate forms! You can find the image mirrored below.

SH Figuarts Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales 1/12th scale Captain Jack Sparrow

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (also known as Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge) is a 2017 American fantasy swashbuckler film, and the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.

Bandai has used their high tech face printing technology to great effect here and managed to capture Johnny Depp’s likeness very well as Captain Jack Sparrow. Although I suspect the protoype pictures will look a lot better than the actual / final product. This was evident with the S.H. Figuarts Game of Death Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit) 14cm Tall Action Figure which was reviewed on my toy blog HERE and HERE. The articulation looks great as it allows collectors to pose Jack in his signature poses.

This SH Figuarts Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales 1/12th scale Captain Jack Sparrow 15cm tall figure will come with two face sculpts, sword with sheath, hat, rum bottle, and 2 compasses, open and closed. Several interchangeable hand options will also be included.

All this only makes me want the Hot Toys MMS DX15 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales 1/6th scale Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow 12-inch Collectible Figure even more – see the preview pics HERE
