Ugh, that robot mode is to die for.

So glad they are reissuing MP-32 as well, I can get the big 3 and call it good on BW MPs

Yeah, looking at those last two pics, maybe now people will see just how small Generations Rhinox is compared to the BW MPs, when he's supposed to be the second-largest Maximal of the Season 1 cast.

Motto: "*Shrug*"
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
Dinobot's sword is neither chrome silver or chrome brown, it's chrome PINK. Definitely a callback to the original toy, but it's a weird choice. I realize the original figure was more to the brown side of the pink spectrum, but once you add the chrome it's a very bright, shiny pink for sure.

Anyway, the figure isn't disappointing to me in the least. Yes, price is heavily inflated, but if it were 5,000JPY less and didn't come with the electronics and massive stand, two things I wouldn't consider essential and may never use, I'd say it was a fair value. He's a big, heavy figure with lots and lots of moving parts. His legs are loaded with hidden joints that allow you to fold them up inside his dino mode, it's really neat. I have to disagree with Ironhidensh, he's much more complex than Cheetor and I can't wait for Megatron now because that figure is going to be incredible and huge!

I'm pretty shocked that it's Sunday, people have been receiving their Dinobot's as early as a week ago, and none of the BIG DAWG reviewers have stepped up. For such an anticipated figure, they sure are dragging their heels. So here's some of the little dawgs:

Video Review Round-Up for Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot

Postby Va'al » Mon Aug 06, 2018 1:30 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Fellow Seibertronian shajaki rightly points out that it seems odd that none of the 'bigger' YouTube reviewers have yet notified us of video reviews for the latest Beast Wars figure from the Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece line - so we headed for the lesser known names, still worthy of a spotlight!

Below you can find a quick round-up of video reviews for MP-41 Dinobot, including all the accessories and parts found in the set, such as the Golden Disk, eye changing gimmick, transformation, size comparisons with previous figures, from a number of YouTube reviewers. Give them a look, and let us know what you think.

Well, after having Dinobot to play with for a weekend, I think I may be getting rid of it, if it's selling well on eBay.

While I liked the figure at first, I'm souring on it more and more:

The transformation gimmick for his arms/raptor feet really limits articulation in both modes.

On my copy, the robot ankle joints are very week, so getting him to stand is a challenge.

The "neck" joint makes any kind of head posing look a bit ridiculous.

It really points out how bad of an animation model Dinobot has.

The cost. The more I handle this, the more upset I get at the price I paid.


I love this character, but I'm just running out of desire to own the figure.

The mailman left me a notice of the Dinopackage, and I picked it up this morning on my way to work. It was a slow afternoon so I busted him open at my desk!

So. I don't see how it can be done any better. And to address the fragility, I think he'll be fine so long as he's not hamfisted. He looks PERFECT in bot mode, and near perfect in beast mode. The beast mode faults I'm willing to let slide because of his raptor head. It is incredibly expressive, in hand I didn't think I'd be this impressed.

However, the isn't the most impressive MP (engineering-wise). He basically just flips inside out all explody-like, and it's been done. I still find the Inferno and Sunstreaker molds to be more groundbreaking. But he's still jaw dropping 8-}

Dinobot, oh man. Once I transform him a few times and loosen some of those hinges from use, he will work better. But dang, he is so goooooooooooooooooooood. I have not gotten him in the stand or using a face or accessory besides the sword and shield yet, and he has no batteries either, but dang is the base figure lots of fun. He is so posable! I took him to work and man, he is heavy and fun. The level of detail and paintwork are astonishing. I love him.

Anyway, pics!

I know Densh wasn't overly impressed, but Dinobot is absolutely slaying it for me. This is why I love the comparatively few MPs I own, they mean something to me in some capacity. And Dinobot, an awesome character and one of the best we have ever gotten in Transformers period, is so perfect. I'm in love with him.
