    Saw these on Robotkingdom and noticed each toy had different paint applications. Henkei Inferno has no white painted details and dinobot is more cartoon accurate. Telling from the image these might be simply test shots, Dinobot eyes are not coloured and Inferno has no Chrome and the paint app feels a bit lazy. i am not sure if these are official images or old test shots for the Universe range.

    They are both unpainted test shots from a retailer catalog.

    Yeah, these ARE test shots of protos...

    HOWEVER - they are FAR better quality than the previous versions we saw of these pics.

    And I'm liking the lighter brown color on Dinobot.

    Dinobot looks so awesome. I can't wait to see the colors they'll throw on him!
    Damn, he really is my most anticipated toy in years.

    Wow, Hot Shot actually doesn't look like the goofy-looking Armada POS he previously was.

    Wait what?

    There's going to be a Henkei version of Armada Hot Shot?

    I don't deny it looks awesome but...why? That's definitely a bizarre choice for a Henkei in my books.

    I'm not much of a Hot Shot fan, but this figure looks pretty good. My only complaint is that I wish his arm kibble didn't go past part of his hands, like it appears to do in the photos. A pretty minor complaint, since that is pretty common in transformer toys.

    Henkei mostly just releases the new molds from our Classics line. Classics is getting Hot Shot, so Henkei is getting him. He's one of the new molds along with Dinobot from the next waves.

    What's wrong with Dinobot's head?
    It looks like it still needs to spend a few more months in the womb.

    I'm sure it's just because this is a test shot, but it still looks weird.

    It's nice to see Hot Shot has some arm articulation this time. But not being an Armada fan, I'll probably pass.

    I wish they would spend more time on the beastwars in this line. So far the 2 being released look so bad.

    Gotta say Hot Shot (and Jolt!) look very nice! Dinobot on the other hand...not so nice.

    Gotta say, Hot Shot looks kewl, and I'll probably get him. Wish Armada Starscream would get an update, being as his toy was also pretty crappy.

    Dinobot looks weird. The head looks suspect. The ginormous arm cannon... I'm not feeling it right now. To me, other than the beast mode, that's not dinobot. I wish they would worry about the quality of the figures more than adding some unneeded projectile lauching POS.
