Hasbro, you were so close to making the most perfect Rhinox, but then you left his chainguns unpainted...

Hehe, that's one of the reasons I'm getting Takara's version. I'm actually getting both, but that's primarily because I want to do what I can to convince both companies that a Beast Wars revival is a good idea ;).

I'm not 100% sold on Takara's either because it looks like Rhinox's rhino skin is metallic.

I think I'm going to hold out hope for reprolabels on this.

Silver paint is cheap my friend, and those bits would not be hard to paint :).

Doesn't anyone else think that a lighter Rhinox is just cheaper to make? I see Hasbro skimp a lot on pigmentation in plastic - their idea of "gray" is abysmally depressing and devoid of color. I suppose that's what "gray" is... but I think Hasbro-gray used to pop more. I see Hasblow Rhinox being dull as a matter of reducing expense.

Nonetheless, I'd probably try to correct the mistake with paint rather than resort to Takara prices! :roll: I still enjoy the affordability of Hasbro toys over Takara. :APPLAUSE:

Yeah, agreed. I really really like Blitzwing, even more than Springer honestly. He's big, beefy and very G1 style. I even figured out a way to wedge the top bits of his shoulders into his chest rather than using the bits that are supposed to (but don't) clip in to hold his shoulders/arms in place and he looks good and is perfectly functional (I can rotate his arms 360 degrees without the shoulders popping out of place). Mine is the Takara version, but I'm sure the same could be done with the Hasbro version.


I'm shocked you guys aren't dripping with venomous hate for Blitzwing. Personally, I was excited to see him in stores. The imperfections are minor, IMO, compared to the wait of seeing a proper Blitzwing appear on shelves again. I understand he should have been more PERFECT, but he's a VOYAGER! He triple changes! Sometimes, I fear that fan complaints serve only to derail a good direction for the toys - at least, I wish people expressed their disregard for Blitz like you two: with reverence and appreciation overall. :BOWDOWN:

That's what I was thinking... :lol: But when he suggested Repro labels (and no insult intended here), I was honestly interested in how one would sticker the chains! :lol: I like to keep an open mind, so if we can sticker that somovabich, let's do it! :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay:

Well I would think if reprolabels, hypothetically, made a Rhinox kit that had chain stickers, it would be like those vinyl stickers that you use a hairdryer to make it shape around the plastic.

How'd you fix it kimosabe? I also have the Tomy version and it really distracts me (the d@mn shoulder issue) on how awesome this mold should have been. Btw Dealer is also a fave of mine, despite being brick (the G1 version), he was quite advance for his time.

I'm down with a Beast Wars revival. I could use a period of there being nothing I want to buy from TFs so I can catch up on Kyoryuger and gaming releases. ;)

You get the hairdryer to warm the vinyl stickers, the sticker start to shape around the plastic as its actually melting a bit, then you take a toothpick to get the small details

You basically slightly flex out on the bits that are supposed to form the tops of his shoulders so that you can slide them in sideways, wedging them against the inside of his chest piece. I hope that makes sense :P. I'd take a pic but I don't have a camera at the moment.
