I had originally written this guy off since I'm not an extreme fan of the character or even the show, but these pictures somehow make that dino mode look a bit tighter. And his robot mode looks dead-on accurate as well... I may end up picking him up after all and starting a little BW display off to the side of my Classics somewhere with Cheetor...

That's what I get for trying to comment on things with only 4 hours sleep...

I'm getting him no matter what as I'm a fan of Dinos and Dragons and what-not. And the hand-switching gimmick ended up looking great :) That same gimmick is the bane of the Dino mode chest though...

The colors just don't do it for me. The purple face, and too dark brown body. Hasbro was so close to making a show accurate toy, and just screwed up the paint apps.

Of course the Henkei version will be spot on.

Anyone else think Hasbro and TakaraTomy are doing this on purpose?

Excellent. He looks fantastic.

He'll need a few paint apps to be more show accurate, and he'll be perfect. The show accurate hands are a really nice feature, awesome that they included them.

You guys want show accuracy, then kiss it. Save for colors, beast characters are practicaly impossible to make completely show accurate unless you want a non-transforming figure, ESPECIALY in Dinobot's case. The beast modes are almost always bound to have some robot kibble poking out somewhere, but I think you guys could at least be thankful that said kibble is far less noticable on this new figure compared to his original. Now the colors... I could ALMOST live with if not for the awkward contrast between yellow and brown.

I am not digging the beast wars molds. Maybe they just look too weird for my taste. Vehicles transforming into robots...Plausible. Animals transforming into robots...Impossible. 8)

Tell that to the Dinobots and the Insecticons.

But I see where you're coming from. The organic animal to robot thing had to grow on me. I hope Hastak releases some of the transmetal figures in the updated Universe fashion.

Well, I'm of the opposite end of the spectrum, I prefer animal transformers, and BW's always had my favorite figures. I hope we get a new Rattrap, Rhinox and Tarantulas also. :mrgreen:

Plus the Maximals and Predacons were more interesting characters. 8)
