Just got him today and love it! But...... At first when I heard and saw him I wasnt too fond of him. I thought he was going to be marketed as a Maximal and since I DO NOT collect anything Autobot, or Maximal, other than Animated Dinobots, it was an easy pass for me. Then I heard about the rotating faction part, I knew I had to have him. So here are some pics and thoughts, this is sort of my first review I guess. Raptor (Alt. mode) Color is great, much lighter than the photoshopped pictures. Dino mode is the most realistic for Dinobot to date IMO. My only gripe is the fact you see his hands in the chest, which most people will but I can look past it. Has standard articulation with the legs, little bit restricted when moving them out due to the hips, mouth opens and closes and the hands move (which are the softer plastic). Would be nice if he had some neck movement in Alt. mode. Here you can see the underside and how the arms/hands fit in. Robot mode: Love it. I think they captured the essence of Dinobot in this mode. I know some people wanted another more show accurate, which IMO was what the 10th anniversary was for, and like how they gave a new twist to an old favorite. He has some really great ankle articulation, knees are a bit limited because of the Alt. mode thighs on the back of the leg, the claws or bones on the lower legs are the softer plastic. Arms can turn 360 degrees at the shoulder as well as at the bicep. Forearms can move up and down. Here you can either have the Predacon or Maximal symbol, blank for Alt. Mode. As we all know his tail opens up and can fire a missile, or the missile can become his sword, which is what I prefer. This is some what similar to his old incarnation from Beast Wars of hold his spinning tail and serrated blade. I would have liked to seen a longer missile/blade with this one. 1-14-09 UPDATE FOUND BY SHADOW PANTHER - The hook on the tail fits in on his back on the top so you can store the tail on the back, nice find!!! Now one thing that might make some people happy since I have yet seen it be discussed is how he has real hands in Bot mode. While this is true, you can also have him have his old school claw hands!!! Here you can see what his hands are usually transformed as with the claws inside... Now just simply put them out and rotate...... I prefer this way since it looks the coolest and prevents the little claw kibble on the hands in Bot mode. You can also see the peg on the claw this way so that the pegs in the missile/sword fit in so he can hold it. He can also hold his tail with the claw hands as well, its an odd fit and pretty sure it is not meant to, but you can...... And some comparisons: Final thoughts: I think this is a great addition to the Universe line and they did a great job IMO with him. I love the color choice since its very Universe style and love that they took some chances on somethings, granted some better engineering could have been accomplished but overall, great figure! Hope you enjoyed! PIC REQUESTS AND QUESTIONS!!!! YES!!!
