What do you mean, meh? You're not from the Emoji movie, are you?

Masterpiece Dinobot looks great ... except for the glaring "hole" near his hips in Velociraptor mode. Other than that, he looks fantastic.

I would have preferred a smaller version of him though. While I know he was sometimes shown as being much taller than the other Maximals, I think him being just a little bit taller instead of a lot taller would have been better. The group shot picture is kind of hard to tell what's going on exactly because of the camera angle pointing upward and Optimus Primal being in an action pose.

I dont understand why people have such a problem with the price. Sure it's more than the average masterpiece but judging by the size he has to be at least as tall as mp Ironhide, maybe taller. He also comes with a ton of accessories and obviously an insane parts count and amount of engineering. Well worth it imo

Well, Looks amazing in Robot Mode. Looks a little panel-y in Raptor mode. The price is a bit high, even AmiAmi has the pre-order up for 21000 yen.

But considering its still quite a ways away, it gives me time to save up before actually pre-ordering.

Don't need a display base. Wish they had removed it to lower the cost.

DO, however, wish that it came with the second disc. Let me guess... the second will come with BW Megatron?

Holy **** **** now this is a masterpiece! If they can pull Dinobot off this well BW Megatron should be a piece of cake. People complain about the him being panel-y but let’s be realistic, how much better could they have done in his beast mode for such TV accurate robot mode? Until it’s like 2050 and they release a new MP Prime that’s 110% cartoon accurate with that year’s modern engineering, this is just as good as it’s gonna get

Also are we probably not getting MP Rattrap and Rhinox because of their Generations toys?

Looks flaming spectacular. The dino legs/ robot arms look a little on the chunky side, but hell, it's still fantastic and totally worth it.

Hope they continue and do the whole season 1 cast. Probably never happen though.

I gotta bring attention to this: look how wide his torso is.

Image

I'm left wondering... is he only going to look good at certain angles?
Other gripes... the eye beams are conjoined with a webbed look, and I really hope you can make his eyes green without said beams. Also, only one disc? He shoulda come with both because of their pivotal significance, or neither. Megatron stole the Golden Disc, and Inferno found the Alien Disc.

Other than that, I can't say I'm not floored. But I need to see some high res up close's of his face(s)!

Holy crap, that MP Dinobot! I can forgive all the panel lines for the dino mode because the bot mode is so perfect. Also, no feet on chest for the dino mode. And for once, the bot is BIG and not a flimsy deluxe. Cheat chest in bot mode? I forgive thee, OH noble warrior.

I dunno if I'll ever get him because he will be so expensive. But that BW MP will definitely be on my radar.

I think they will come. Especially Rhinox since the generations toy is way too small for the right scale.

What I find super cool is how that chest is not truly fake. Its his underbelly in robot mode, so a part of the alt mode (jut not the head).

Official Promotional Video for Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot

Postby Va'al » Sun Nov 12, 2017 10:46 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Fellow Seibertronian shajaki has pointed us towards a new official video from the Takara Tomy YouTube channel, featuring the latest addition to the Transformers Masterpiece line: MP-41 Dinobot! Covering pretty much all of the images we've seen in the previous post from Amazon Japan - which you can check out again here - we get to see clips from the Beast Wars cartoon that inspire the figure's transformations passages, poses, and accessories such as the spinning tail shield, the sword, the swappable faces and Gold Disk, plus the laser eyes, the figure stand and some comparison shots with previous Beast Wars Masterpiece figures MP-34 Cheetor and MP-32 Optimus Primal (Beast Convoy).

Additionally, via the Takara Tomy website, a feature on the figure lets us know that the raptor mode does indeed have changeable eyes, the robot mode's eyes can be lit up green or red, and we get a better look at the back of the figure and the 'ladder magic' (we need a new name..) that hides the beast mode panels in robot mode.

Check them all out below, as we also get further confirmation that yes, the figure will cost 28000 Yen (approx 250 USD) and is due for release in July 2018!

Please support Takara by purchasing this item at PO release prices and not wait for them to go on sale! :PRAY: Takara's financial situation is quite bleak with them always in the red... make MP Dinobot worth their effort and give them a financial blowout by making him a successful MP release unlike poor old Tracks!

As much as I want this figure, and I do very much, that price is simply far beyond what I'm willing to pay. 150 would have been far more reasonable.

July is a long way from now though, maybe something will change in that time. Either the price or my willingness to pay it.

Anyone else agree we need more sizzle videos like this one? Yeah, totally makes me want to purchase the figure. BUT! I won't. No attachment to the character or Beast Wars really at all. AND, even at the cheapest through AmiAmi at around $188 USD, nope. $150 is my limit on figures now a days. And even then it's gotta be something I reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally want.

I can't wait to hear from everyone that does pick this guy up how awesome he is! He looks incredible!!

This looks far better than I would have imagined!! Holy Sheet!!!

I am still really on the fence about the price though. That is just... I could somewhat justify MP-36 because he is the big con leader himself, but even though I do love Dinobot and need him for my Beast Wars guys, he is still more expensive than I really want to pay.

Argh, decisions.

I'm incredibly faithful to HasTak, but come on. Everyone's beef with this pricepoint is completely legitimate and justified. He shouldn't cost any more than Ironhide or Ratchet. And while I personally liked MP Tracks, peoples beefs with it were also legitimate.

But even though he's priced high, I bet there's enough people like me out there to support it. And let's not fool ourselves, Dinobot is probably the most beloved TF character outside of G1, and easily in the top 10 of all time. Mark my words, he will sell out.
