    Now this snarl I can really get behind. Looks fantastic. Multiple color runs make sense to try and generate additional revenue to fund grassor and their swoop.

    I cannot wait for this. This is what I'm hoping will turn into my MP Dino's. Looking awesome GigaPower!

    This is indeed a pretty awesome looking figure. Im not a fan of any of the Not-Dinobot weaponry. I just don't care for all the translucency. Im hoping for an eventual weapon upgrade kit once all the Dinos are out.

    That is one intimidating, badass looking bot.

    I really like how this turned out, despite the gold being a bit on the bronze/copper side. It looks different, but still good to me. Think the people that are waiting for this will definitely end up with a product they enjoy in the end. I'm going the sever route but that's just because I'm already invested with FT. This in no way looks to be a consolation prize anymore, but a legit alternative if you don't like the FT offering.

    These just look off somehow - can't really explain it. The plastics used remind me of the FoC Grimlock. Maybe they just need better photos or something, but this doesn't look masterpiece quality to me.

    Yeah, I'm glad I went with FT. He looks like a nice TF, but doesn't feel MP to me.

    Looks good, though I'm on board with FT's, Giga really did a nice job here.

    The only thing I don't like about Giga's attempt is the odd placement of gold in the center chest. Other than that, looks great.

    The aesthetic is more toy-oriented. I'm very curious to see if a toon deco will be used (more whitish face, no black trunks/crotch tampos) at some point. Don't see why they wouldn't...when they said "multiple colors" would come out.

    Yeah my thoughts too....looks very plasticky. Almost cheap? Not sure if that makes sense but I really don't think those pics are doing it justice.

    Happy that the Giga supporters/waiters are looking like they are finally going to get their figures "soon" He looks good but I still don't like some of the design choices. Still sticking with FT for mine though. Good luck guys hopefully you will get an expected date soon.

    Is that paint? Or is it gold plastic?

    at least partially painted, looks fully painted-- there are two different shades of gold on the tail, as turnman noticed.

    I'm terribly torn. Giga has accurate eyes and codpiece. FT has chrome and better looking accessories. Why can't we have the perfect MP Snarl with Guttur's head, Sever's torso, arms, weapons and chrome, and Guttur's waist and legs?

    I'm afraid I may have to pass on Guttur. While Sever can be fixed with some paint, I'm not going to be able to chrome Guttur on my own.

    Okay that gun is quite a bit too small. Considering he used his sword more in the show that's not a huge problem to me. Hopefully Dr. Wu or some other 3rd party group does a gun for him or a weapons pack in case some of the others have ill-fitting accessories(not saying they will but just in case). Other then that and the gold in the chest I'm still sold on this guy. Just wish they'd hurry up and give pricing already.

    Looks great. Like Deaculpa said, Guttur will fuck you up! Now Giga, please tell me there are ratchets in those shoulders. I ...don't know if I can be hurt like that again.
