Weapon: Battle Blades
I'd welcome a MP Rattrap but would like a Rhinox first. The Generations Rattrap is far from the level of an MP toy, but in robot mode my brain can make it work with the others well enough for now. Rhinox's Generations toy has been too small since Dinobot came out to serve the same purpose and was barely nice enough to stand next to MP Primal and Cheetor to start with.

It's all because of Takara choosing to make MP Primal scale with the original Big Convoy mold.

Rhinox will be a chunky old figure. Hopefully with hands that should be big enough to grip Dinobot's throat...

..While at the same time, holding MP Cheetor's gun and Rattrap...

I have high hopes for the MP version of my favourite Maximal.

Just so people unaware don't get the wrong idea, Rhinox is lifting Rattrap off the ground in this pic. Rattrap is not really that tall when compared to Rhinox.

Then when we get the Rhinox figure to go with this possible Rattrap, or vise versa, this will be a selling point. Recreating obscure scenes anyone?
You know, as a kid I never made the connection between the G1 Sideswipe toy my brother passed down to me and the characters in the Beast Wars show on TV, until Michael Bay had Sideswipe as a Corvette.

I said it's super likely as that's kinda Tak's thing in the MP line.

To add some more context to the scaling we should expect from Rhinox (and Rattrap):

Rhinox is roughly as tall as Primal, but considerably wider. Based on the Beast Mode pic above though, I am sceptical Rattrap will be as small as he should be.
