    Yeah he’d need that head. And honestly he’d be a better grimlock than actual MP grimlock.
    Cool.
    Actar not only has no fear but god like precision. Insane.

    He definitely would not be a better Grimlock than MP-8, that doesn't even begin to make sense. He was just a Dinobot name thrown on a random Dinosaur, much like Dinobot himself. Other than a very vague resemblance in the head, they have nothing in common. Much like Shadow Panther and Ravage.

    Random name reuses was one of the weak points of Beast Wars. Having two Silverbolts, two Prowls, etc. Kenner made great figures and a great mythos, but it wasn't perfect. The problems that still exist today were rearing their ugly heads.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Buzz Saw and Lazorbeak down the track.

    Obviously they aren’t alike at all, but in terms of better figures a dinobot retool into beast wars grimlock would be a far better figure. I’m only making a joke. Of course you could have a new grimlock figure that could replace MP-08 easily.
    Now that’d also be fun to have.

    That face sculpt is stunning...her fantastic robot mode means I can forgive her hideous beast mode! 6154B127-A78C-45CE-A386-DA74A40B55FF.png

    She does look particularly good in that image. Sculpt, paint, detailing.. all spot on :)

    I think there's supposed to be a smiling face. Assuming the face with the green eyes is the screaming face from the description.

    Still keeping my fingers crossed the smile comes with a wink ❤️

    Would’ve been cool to have a shouting face without the green eyes too. Her eyes didn’t light up green when she was angry, did they?

    No, but it represents Tarantulas' control of her.

    I guess it's possible the eyes are inserts that are interchangeable..like with Cheetor beast mode. indeed, intentionally or not eyes are often removable or a separate part on MPs. It would be great if they were but I can certainly live with that not being the case.

    Yeah I was gonna say that lol. I’d love if she could switch all her faces with those eyes. Especially her lustful smile. That’d be incredible. And if she has a winking face (which is entirely speculation and no backing), I’ll blow my mind and it’ll spray onto the walls.

    I’m sure it’s already been discussed, but is A-E cheaper than Amazon JP? For me, it looked like $98 non-shipped vs $115 shipped, not sure if slow shipping would exceed $17 ...

    Such a simple transformation to be $140.00. This fig should be $80.00 tops.
