    if they ever decided to make an Optimal Megatron figure they would need to get rid of that gorilla head
    it sounds like a longshot though

    Would they? I guess it would be cool to have a different beast mode head for him but he didn't really have beast mode in Beast Machines. It could just be a simple redeco of the existing beast head.

    I always wanted to get another Optimal Optimus and just put a Megatron head on it to be Optimal Megatron. Now, I am hoping that Beast Gorira gets another release.

    I have a BW Neo question. I had both Big Convoy and Magmatron when they came out. I sold my Magmatron and Big Convoy is in a box in my garage somewhere, and honestly, i don't care about him that much to dig him out. Part of me wants to get a new Magamatron, but he is always so expensive. How come he is so expensive, especially that he got a US release when Big Convoy is so much cheaper?

    I always thought it would be funny if he had his own tm2 beast head so imagine a blue dragon face on a gorilla body like Blots dad or something
    not that they should ever do that they can re-engineer the body anyway they choose like Ultra magnus and powermaster prime take out the beast mode and remold megatron's smaller form to look like the model Mainframe recycled for all the pre-earth bodies instead of Primals season 1 body
    they can add wheels on the big suit though

    @Primal Sabbath this digibash is for you bud! Heard you mention this during Cybercast and I thought it was a cool idea.

    Also shoutout to @TCracker for the base image.

    I think one of the main reasons why Magmatron is still very expensive is because he's quite rare and hard to find, especially a complete one in good condition. Another reason why Magmatron is so expensive (and also one of the reasons why it's hard to find a complete one in good condition) is because he's sort of a combiner (his robot mode is comprised of 3 "dinosaurs" combined), which makes it more difficult to keep all of his parts intact and complete.

    IKR, while I haven't looked close enough into the fine details of the Dinobot pics, I'm hoping that the raptor hands have enough pose ability to hold Rat Trap's rifle like a hand gun. It would be nice if he can do this because it would be a great acknowledgement for the Code of Hero episode.

    Got Optimus Primal (Bat) and Megatron (Croc) yesterday for a trade with an online seller. Got them loose but both in good condition with tight joints. Some minimal paint wear on OP’s head, though.

    Really wish they were bigger, like Mega or even Ultra class, especially Megatron in crocodile mode.

    Too bad Optimus Primal’s swords are missing...

    Disapointingly.

    Tell you what TT, how about you dump the stand and give us some non-peghole hands to switch out with these as we wish?

    Edit: I love how Dinobot looks in general and cannot wait to have him in hand, but the stand and these peg-holes are ugly calluses upon what is otherwise perfection.

    Callouses? LOL, true. Maybe we can imagine them as marks of a dedicated swordsman! Anyway, it would be nice to ditch the stand for something better, such as the extra hands to swap on volition. I think I would even sacrifice the Golden Disk: Sounds of Earth for a Code of Hero battle damaged chest plate. Then again, his two demises during the Beast Wars don't mark the end for our slag spouting saurian friend since we see him again in the IDW comics.

    I would buy this up pretty quick. Especially finding out it's his Shattered Glass look!

    You guys can always sell the stands. They look very sturdy and I'm sure at lease the Diaclone community would love them.

    Yeah wierd typo/autocorrect blunder, but you hot my meaning ;) 

    I'll probably keep it just like I do many accessories that I have no real use for, likelihood is it'll stay in the box.
