    A great pick for his Alt. mode as it incorporates his Chainguns of Doom. It is my favorite in the set.

    I understand why they chose it, but using Landmine for Rhinox still doesn't look quite right to me, mostly because Landmine is not a particularly broad or stocky design.

    Dinobot however ... quite nifty.

    That Rhinox for me is honestly the best toy in the set hands down. Excellent mold to begin with, and they just made it bang on Rhinox.

    Dinobot looks good too although I still very much hate that Armada Hoist mold.

    Really diggin' the two figures, but that shovel arm for Dinobot still bothers me a bit.

    Otherwise, I think I'll be saving money toward Botcon Megs (if I can get him Xp).

    Rhinox is excellent. Although he looks much younger.

    Thinking on it, Dinobot would look great if he had two normal arms instead of one. Of course then it wouldn't have a Cyber gimmick, but it'd be spot on purrfect.

    And has anyone else noticed that despite Dinobot being a pred, that the box set is in fact all of the good guys from the first season? I'm kinda wondering if we might not get the rest of the Predacons as Store exclusives at some future date.

    A Scrapmettal Tarantulas, Flip jet Terrorsaur, and Shortround Scorponok would make for some excellent and affordable exclusives.

    Dinobot looks great. Not perfect, mind you but great enough to merrit duking it out on eBay to grab him up (it IS Dinobot afterall.)

    Rhinox = ditto, 'cept the mold is perfect for him.

    Still hoping against hope that Hasbro/Takatom will make these general releases other than Botcon pieces...Nevertheless, my congrats to all those "Would Be Owners" of these marvellous figures! :thumb

    Dinobot is looking a lot better in these pics.

    As for Rhinox, I adore Landmine's mold and think it's a decent Rhinox, but I still think that head doesn't look like Rhinox's. I would've liked it better if Rhinox had gotten the remold instead of Cheetor.
