While Toy Fair was commencing over the weekend in New York, TakaraTomy was not one to be one-upped by its American counterparts at Hasbro. For over in Japan was Wonderfest taking place the same weekend, at which TakaraTomy showed off its own latest Transformers products and foreshadowed others to come. While Hasbro was unveiling the likes of Titan class Trypticon, TakaraTomy was silently announcing a new dinosaur toy of their own.
Thanks to snakas blog
, we have scans of a flyer that was handed out at Wonderfest, which advertised several new Transformers products from TakaraTomy (mostly for Transformers: The Last Knight), including a silhouette accompanied by text that indicates said silhouette to be for the third Beast Wars figure of the Masterpiece series. Behold the announcement of Masterpiece DINOBOT!!!
NOTE: Silhouette is not representative of the final product. It is merely stock character CG art rendered by Mainframe that has been blackened out.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis
