    Ok. Was able to actually watch it. Just from the demonstration, it appears to have been fully remedied and much sturdier! Really love this. They even fixed the paint apps on the dino snouts.

    I've asked him about uploading it to youtube but it's almost midnight in China so I think he might upload tomorrow if he saw my comment.
    Here are some screenshots:

    3.the head joint is tighter than previous sample

    4.the sharp parts on the sample is now not that sharp

    5.dino head has updated accurate color and you can see it in bot mode belly
    截圖 2024-05-14 晚上11.44.26.png

    6.the legs/ankles are not too tight like the previous sample
    截圖 2024-05-14 晚上11.44.42.png

    7.the tail tab which connects to the ass might scratch paint so people might need to be careful about this part
    截圖 2024-05-14 晚上11.45.50.png

    8.the waist/upper body is more stable
    截圖 2024-05-14 晚上11.46.01.png

    9.dino leg joints are tighter(he didn't say if there are any new ratchet joints or just tighter joints)
    截圖 2024-05-14 晚上11.46.29.png

    10.more accurate dino head color(the head on his hand is previous sample)
    截圖 2024-05-14 晚上11.46.51.png

    11.the dino mode can stand on its own legs now(the previous sample would lean forward)

    No details at the moment, I only heard the release date is delayed to June last week; I will check baidu in the next few days and see if there is any new preorder info about it.

    I do really like this project. I'm currently going with the TA but I could double dip if this turns out to have real quality on the final project. I think it is a slightly cool design then the TA

    Yeah, I feel like while I might not grab this immediately, I'm almost certainly going to eventually.

    Thanks! But the majority of the joints are still friction, so it's a pass for me

    Nice to see they fixed all of the biggest issues. Can't wait to get this thing.

    So I've asked baidu users who know the designer if the company adds ratchet joints to the dino legs or not, they told me the designer said there is no space for ratchet joints in the dino legs since the legs are already designed as stretchable legs.

    I really don't have an issue there. The robot legs seem to have strong ratcheting, and the dino legs joints appear stiff enough.

    I am going to wait for some user here to have this in person. I think the raptor mode will be tough to pose but I guess we shall see with time. Transart seems to be the early winner with rachets everywhere and a more solid transformation for me at least.

    Thinking I like the Dino mode here more; bigger head, more cohesive body. Torn on the robot, both look great.

    I don’t need two Transmetal II Dinobots…
