    I'm not sure if anyone was aware this figure exists, but I was just at Target and they had Hound, and Cyclonus, and they also had Dinobot. I don't know if he's a Target exclusive or chaser or not, but I saw him and being the huge Beast Wars, and Huge Dinobot fan I am, I had to snag him. I just searched a bunch of threads and didn't see him listed. So, here's some pics incase anyone's interested.

    The main feature is a revolving plate on his chest that goes from Predacon symbol, to Maximal symbol, and then to a skin colored plate for his beast mode. His head sculpt is 100 % show accurate, and he has two sets of hand, his robot hands (The Dino hands), and a set of gold robot hands. The other
    hands are crucial for holding his weapons. Very cool toy. If you want more pics just ask.

    Oh just found the thread for him. Oh well, I'll leave it up or a mod can remove it either or. :)

    Yeah he beats the original Dinobot figure in terms of likeness, and looks great on display with the other Maxiamls.

    Man, Dinobot has been out for a while. Thanks for the info though.
    I've been fighting the urge to get this guy for so long but I'm gonna hold out for the Henkei version.

    I'm assuming that's the Japanese version (shows how out of touch I am with the TF line). As much as I'd love to import transformers, the only thing I import now of days is Sentai/Tokuatsu stuff. Just to expensive to get stuff from Japan if it's also being released here. The stuff I import have no american counterpart toywise, or are released with no electronics, and are made of cheaper plastic.

    Yeah Henkei is the Japanese version. It is a lot more expensive actually. About 2 or 2 1/2 times more expensive than he domestic release. But to me the price is worth the more show accurate paint scheme.

    I'm all for a cartoon accurate paint scheme, but when we're talking about a big price difference, than it doesn't cut it.

    Sometimes, being cartoon accurate isn't a good thing. Take Universe Cyclonus for example. Henkei version doesn't exude the same level of baddass-ery that Universe does, all on account of his color scheme.

    Ugh. Don't remind me. I just got Henkei Cyclonus the other day... Its nasty. But I will add that I don't consider him being toon accurate either. I think Takara dropped the ball on this one.

    Even though I already knew about Dinobot, I'm very glad you posted that picture. You confirmed for me my theory that his fists could rotate back so he could have show-accurate hands.
