I don't have Primal, Dinobot is my first Beast MP. I am going for Megs, got him on Pre-order from Amazon japan. I was thinking about getting the MP Primal reissue, or getting one still at TFsource, but I'm gonna hold off on that until I get the Throne of the Primes set, seeing as how with that I will have a season 1 and season 3 Primal basically in color.

See, that's the odd thing, I think his robot mode is the better of the 2, even though raptor mode is not bad at all. I think his raptor mode would be more on par to robot mode if his raptor thighs had a bit more movement in them, and maybe another side to side swivel in the tail.

This is one of my few complaints about the figure. While it doesn't hamper posability as much as you'd think, I did find it odd to have those thighs static and stuck.

I'm not sure I can rank one of his modes above the other, but I'm right there with Densh about the expressiveness of that Dino head.

So, Hearts of Steel Bumblebee AKA Centurion. He's pretty good. The whole reason I got him was because he was the same price as War Hammer Bee from Movie the Best and I like Hearts of Steel designs. And he reminds me of Percy and Thomas in train form AKA my favorite childhood show ever that I still watch (along with Magic School Bus, which he also reminds me of).

Robot mode is a deluxe sized chunky piece of fun. The shoulders don't peg in, but they are fairly stiff and stay put. I adore the head, and the train bits are fantastic. I love the legs with the wheels and pistons and cowcatcher, they're great!

Transformation is pretty fun. I had to get the right leg to reluctantly cooperate the first time but it's been smooth railing since. Train mode is adorable! The one weakness is you can see the head through the gap in the back sides due to transformation, but that's a minor thing. Hammer stores nicely, and the train mode is where he really shines. I love it, and now I need some rails for it.

Also, the hammer is well painted, and while I don't like it being hollow on one side like a retail TF figure, the colors are fantastic. I would recommend him.

Pretty snug in bot mode. Beast mode is a bit finnicky depending on the bends in the leg joints. It's not like he needs to be upright, just more like how much his knee is bent varies the tightness. If his knees are a bit tucked up and closer to his body, he can basically do what he wants with tons of stability. If he has his legs fully extended to max height, more poses and basic standing are affected and a bit harder to balance.

I am really appreciating the stand, seeing as how I only own a few stands and they were all for Gundam. The only reason Hot Rod is on one is because 00Quant came with one that didn't fit him for some reason, so I had to get another for him an find a TF with the little peghole in the back. And the dynamic poses you can pull off with the stands help is fantastic!

Dinobot really is a killer bot!

So I pulled some of my G1 guys out for some photos. Got Jetfire into some poses and I took some pictures for Cobotron to show off Doubledealer.

I'll start with Doubledealer: the base mode is the artillery truck mode, with the autobot powermaster unlocking some parts to turn him into his humanoid robot mode, with some add on bits for the chest and guns, and then the con one turns him into a bird of prey. Honestly, this guy is so worth it on the G1 scale, and he does something that no one else ever has done. He feels like Punch/Counterpunch even, just using powermasters.

I've also ordered him and Grotusque some reprolabels from Toyhax, so they will get all properly stickered up, seeing as how between them the only sticker still there is the one on Doubledealer near the cab in truck mode.

As a bonus, I rearranged some things to add Dinobot to the group, and among the rearrangements is a shelf dedicated to my generations ladies, and Firestar will join them (and most likely send TR Windblade back to Fort Max's Shoulder, until maybe COG comes)
