    I'm still trying to figure out how his lower torso/crotch area in dino mode works upside down in bot mode. I need to see how this works. Am I missing this being explained somewhere?

    'Ragga'. I mean, it's Rager as in rage, right?

    Anyhoo, looks sweet for sure. This new video isn't allaying any concerns about tools needed to transform though. Oh well, looks like it's a general thing rather than the last vid being a stiff copy.

    I got the sense that his hips are going to be loose (just like Bumper and Quaker, who could barely stand).

    Yes, your legends scale toy is going to have a few limitations. Sadly the dino mode will not be as inaccurate as it has been in the past. It will still not resemble a real T-Rex, so there's that....

    I have found my Swoop and Sludge to be the only 3P Toys I own (well, except Spartan tbf) which I have no quibbles about. Will be interested to see how this is in hand now.

    As for dates, I now find the idea of any 3P company giving an estimated date of release laughable. They are so incapable of meeting any estimated date or anywhere near it, what’s the point?

    This guy is up on ebay. Thorner too. Hopefully he hits TCP soon and not end of October like they currently cite on their calendar.

    Hopefully! I was bummed when I saw TCP had moved the release date for these guys and all the Iron Factory figures back several weeks.

    Demanded a refund on my Legends Magnus because it didn't have a butt flap.

    I mean, please. Do they think I'm a joke?

    Out of curiosity and possibly lack of information, what does DX9 have in the pipe line after Sonic Wizard (out now) Rager and Thorner (out soon I hope)? Have they not dropped any hints on any up coming items other than the seeker repaints (rain makers) pictured on the Sonic Wizard box/insert? Seems odd with nothing coming or announced. Are they done with WIP?

    Yeah, but they were hinting at that over a year ago and didn't even show any renders. Did they give that up or still planning on releasing it? And for the love of Pete, we need some damn carbots ASAP.
