I cant wait to get this beaut
On which one? Dinobot? I checked and don't quite see it ATM .
Not yet. I will get one when I shoot SDCC Primal next week.
Amazing gallery of an amazing figure. That Code of Hero shot is perfect!
His hips look correct to me in both modes. :/
The Dino hips. They’ve got the shoulder pads showing.
Kind of hard to avoid that. Even with them being able to move around a bit they're still going to be visible. Takara can't 100% nail the show beast modes and still have a transforming figure too.
Of course they’re unavoidable. But you can hide them pretty well like in your photo here.
Technically those are the knees.
Beautiful figure and superb photos.
I can think of a couple of solutions to cover them up, so I am sure Takara could have if they wanted to, but for whatever reason (budget?) they decided to stop there. I am almost certain that the 3P community will come up with a solution as an add on kit. See Primal shoulder pads, Cheetors's legs, Soundwave's back, Ironhide's hip flaps
Ugh. How many more of these Beast Wars will there be before getting back to G1?!?
Apart from Shadow Panther next month, just one new BW mould on the horizon - Megatron in January. Before then G1ers have MP-17+, 29+, 36+ and MP-42. From February G1ers will have MP-20+ followed by Hound and Optimus Prime.
Hopefully every character that appeared on the show. Then after that I hope they do MP Beast Machines, Car Robots/RID, Micron Legends/Armada and so on. G1 is just one group in an ever growing adult collector market and it's just bad business to ignore a large portion to please one generation only for Takara. Enjoy, you finally have an official MP Hound and another MP Prime coming up.
All of them. Also, BW characters are G1
It’s great for me. As someone who happily straddles G1 and BW, I always have plenty of MP goodness to look forward to!
On the subject of other lines, I wonder if we will ever see an MP Superlink Laserwave. I kept that bad boy from my early 2000’s collection, and I’d love to see how they could improve him.
I see what you mean now. Those were like that straight out of the box so I assumed they were meant to be like that. Didn't realize they spun around until I started transforming him. And really, didn't even cross my mind then that "oh I could've hid them more."
Next time he hits Beast Mode tho, aka when Megatron arrives, will do.
It’s all good man. Hey when megatron arrives it’s gonna be some great play time.
Honestly I think it could be solved if they did a different deco that would blend with it. Like beast wars grimlock.
Wait what was wrong with soundwave’s back?
