    So much for my hopes of Cyclonus, Part Deux with Dinobot. Even the boxart is colored to look like that. I just can't understand why, but that's fine, that's the beauty of having a choice.

    It may not be show accurate, but I kinda like it.

    Anyways, what does the blurb on pointing to h is chest say?
    Does he switch from Predacon to Maximal or Predacon to Decepticon?

    edit: Never mind, I can see it says Maximal to Predacon.

    I'm guessing they're marketing him as a decepticon/predacon as a contrast to cheetor.

    Apparently he has a faction symbol switching gimmick on his chest, so you can have him as a predacon or maximal.

    I may be in the majority, but I like the deco on this guy. I also like how they've made him a Predacon. I've always preferred him as a Pred than a Maximal. The box art looks really good too, and it helps confirm that the firing missile can also be used as his sword. I might actually get him, though it's more than likely going to be an in-person decision.

    You can see that the box art has him holding the missile as a sword. It really isn't that hard to imagine with the actual toy, as most missiles are thin enough to fit into the average TF's fist.

    Looks awesome! I love that he'll have a switching faction symbol.

    Yeah, two faction symbols= win.

    Can anyone read his bio? I can make out the first sentence, but that's it.

    Awesome. 2 faction symbols.

    That way, Henkei Dinobot can be his BW self, and Universe Dinobot can be a clone made by Megatron (like in Season 1, only one that transforms)

    Poor Chopperface looks like he's screaming "Halp!" the way he's packaged on the card.


    I had not though about that. That is such a cool, slightly expensive, idea! Though who am I kidding? I was going to buy Henkai Cyclonus and Universe Cyclonus with the latter being His Armada.

    "Within the chassis of DINOBOT beats the spark of a warrior."

    I can't get any further than that, sorry.

    Kind of a good idea, when you think about it. Dinobot was (and always is) a Predacon. However, he joined the Maximals to get revenge on Megatron. I think it's pretty neat.
