Has Takara released any pictures of him yet??? If so where can I find them??
I think they did hold on a second.
EDIT: Here you go I think?
Thanks man. Boy, that isn't show accurate at all. What a let down
I don't know it might be different takara has a habit of using hasbro toys for there photo shoots before they get their toys done.
thats because its NOT the henkei. this is....
no bot mode yet but you can clearly see its a different color and there is some blue in there!
That isn't the henkei.
I don't remember exactly where, but we did get a pic of henkei Dinobot in beast mode, you could see blue in place of the purple for his robot parts. The colors for the beast mode are closer to the show as well, but the pattern is still not quite accurate.
Edit: Deceptigar beat me to it.
OK I'm lost
EDIT: never mind http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...n/199152-universe-dinobot-henkei-dinobot.html scroll down a bit for comparisons.
Thanks, but that Dinobot is almost the same as Hasbro's. The brown and pink should be flipped.
not necessarily. depends how you look at it, his model in the show is a pink skin where the brown is solid on top and comes down, granted from the looks of the henkei the could just use some more solid pink on the undersides.
I already own the Universe one, and this may be one of those few times I give in and actually get a Henkei one too. The only Henkei ones I have are Megatron and Starscream so far.
I'm guessing besides a likely gold chromed helmet, his sword/missle will also be silver chromed as well.
This is one of my favorite molds to come from universe so far...now if I can just get those knees to bend some more.
I'm so glad I pre-ordered the Henkei one. I could crap a better color scheme than Hasbro came up with for Dinobot. You'd think they'd have enough pride in their mold to go one step further and paint it nicely. I would buy the Universe one and paint it myself, but those stripes would be way too difficult. Purple face + bright yellow helmet = bad.
You may be right, but I think he'll have a brown helmet. Since I can already see a light brown color on that toy, I assume they'll use it on his helmet too. I hope you are right about his sword, however.
Actually, the Universe one is spot on when you see it IRL... except for the fuckin purple. Too bad his knee articulation is a total joke.
I'm opting for the henkei if only for the blue n the joints. I'd paint the US version but those joints will wear the paint down fast.
Dinobot may be the first and only Henkei figure I will ever own. I see no problems with the mould, but I have no idea how the colours on Uni. Dinobot came to be. not only is the Henkei more accurate in terms of colours and layout, but it just looks far better. From what I can tell, the only way to make it more accurate would be to have the stomach pink, but that would comprimise the robot mode, so I can live with it.
I don't know guys, I still think He should be a little more pink. I don't remember him being brown in the show.
Now, the original toy on the other hand was more pink but that's been remedied with the 10th aniv ed.
Hmmm.... I stand corrected. He does have more brown than I thought. Still to be more show accurate the under belly in beast mode should be pink. BUT if that would hurt the robot mode then they should just leave it alone.
