I'm unsure about this guy. I like how he's getting a remold for the universe line...but the toy has way too many panels in dino mode, and it still suffers from the same weird undercarriage junk that the original had.

The robot mode looks really good though. I'll probably get it only because I'm a huge fan of the character.

It's a shame really. That looks to be one solid mold and it looks perfect for Dinobot, my all-time favourite TF character, but the colour scheme just kills it for me.

Would it have killed them to just get close to the show-accurate colours? it's like they didn't even try...

I genuinely don't understand the choice of colors for this one. It's too bad we already submitted our questions to Hasbro for the month, maybe they can shed some light on the color scheme.

I really like this figure.

Those things on his legs? they're supposed to fold back on his Bot-Mode legs.

And why is everybody whining to be show-accurate? It's annoying.

I am going to get this figure as soon as it comes out.

Whats more annoying is people who whine about other people whining

I agree with everone else, the colours could/should be better, purple instead of blue = why?

Reminds me of Universe Galvatron's extra feet. Maybe this is a new concept Hasbro is introducing: vestigial limbs.

I'm thinking he could be what Dinobot would have been had he survived everything. AS long as I don't constantly think of him as the BW one, he's kind of cool.

This proves once again that the Beast Wars toy truly suck and should be left as a memory. Now that I got that out of my system! I really wish Hasbro would stop photoshoping there prototypes. I tell you this Hasbro; if you paint your new figures as good as the pictures I'd Collect them all.

I think he meant in Raptor Mode. Not the bone like rib design he has in robot mode, but the actual claws under his dino head. between his dinky little arms. There seem to be 2 claws like he had his feet in the old toy.

However in robot mode those claws really aren't used for anything as he has fists now. So he has 2 gratuitous claws in beast mode that only make his chest look really bad.

However I think he's a good update, but for some reason i like the original toy better.

It kind of looks like one of those knockoff we see at Big Lots

Plus the coloring looks as if he was in a fire
