    Whatever happened to that figure? Is it no longer happening? I remember hearing news about it and then nothing. Anyone have any information about it? I did a google search and nothing came up.

    There was no news about it. He's just one of the guys they want to do if they get a chance to, and they haven't gotten a chance to.

    The statement WRT to Voyager Rhinox was aspirational, and apparently specific to Rawley alone.

    Beyond that, Universe Cheetor and Dinobot aren't particularly seen as a retail success... So this one probably never really left the starting gate.


    Also, Brian Goldner pissed off a gypsy once, so now Transformers is cursed forever.

    The thread's useful again now so I wouldn't worry.


    Yay! Rhinox! :D 



    He looks a gangly fella, but I'm impressed they managed to make him look pretty toon accurate. And he actually does have both chainguns of DOOM.

    I am slightly disapointed with the lower half of the figure, but overall the toy is amazing update. I will own two.

    Honestly, his thighs should be bigger and his hips should be wider, but Jesus Christ does he look good.

    For me it's not the hips, but just above. His waist could do with being a bit thicker, the hips for me are fine. Even so, he does look truly fantastic. He looks like a bruiser, which is very appropriate. It'd be a crime to my younger self to not pick the guy up.


    Makes me wish we could get new Dinobot and Cheetor figures. Dinobot's old one is great, but chopperface is big in bot mode so I'd prefer a voyager figure. And Cheetor...that was a disaster.

    Eh I can always pretend he went on a diet or something. He's practically perfection.

    I'd kill for an Optimus Primal done the same. It's clearly time for a Beast Wars revival, since now it appears toy engineering as finally improved over the originals.

    Looks like this thread is relevant again.

    Anywho, I can't wait for this figure. No complaints.
