    If they wanted to de a jurassic world figure after this: something they could do is sell a reapint of kingdom grimlock with sticer options for red stripes (Universe homage) or blue for well... Blue.

    *sigh* missed it as I was waiting for payday.  Any idea if this is going to hit other retailers?

    And don't worry about funds when preordering on Amazon – they don't charge or hold your card until ships.

    Cheers. But I meant which toy specifically. Doesn’t look like the original, Hasbro, mini gunpla, SOC or Legacy one.

    As a big fan of both franchises, I really want this, but collabs dont regularly show up in my country, plus I'm sure if it did the distributor would put a really big price increase on top of the MSRP.
    Still I think both figures are really cool

    I kind of prefer to stay from stickers myself, especially when it comes to Blue. Also trying to put stickers on 'flesh' may not turn out too well, especially with the kind of stickers Hasbro seems to use.
    And speaking of Blue I'd like them to remold her robot body to look more female. I think Hasbro kind of cheated with Tyrannacon. She's female because they say she's female on the box . But other than her head(s) and deco, she's pretty much identical to BW Megatron and T Wrecks. In fact she looks like what Beast Wars Grimlock should have been (imo).

    Why? The money won’t come out until it’s about to ship. Amazon has never taken immediate payment that I know of in the 20+ years I’ve been buying from them.

    It came back briefly but it gone again. Hasbro Pulse will have them in November.

    Agreed, Hasbro's stickers don't work to well on a flat surface, no way on a textured "skin" surface. Not very strong glue, no where near as aggressive as ToyHax stickers, not matter the surface you get one shot to put them on right, they ain't coming off unless you tear them off.

    I also agree about the torso and hips, a little remolding would go a long way. I don't know where to apply anymore paint to make it more different than Megs at this moment. I was thinking silver paint, but that'll make it closer to Megs. Maybe gold or yellow, but where? Megs has most of those details already picked out in paint, that any variation of color in the same places just makes it look more like Megs.

    I knocked out a couple of (rough) color layout ideas. I think they look pretty good -- I noticed there's a green stripe on the head that isn't reflected anywhere else on the deco and thought that should be expanded on.

    Nice job! I think I like #1 the best.

    Perhaps painting the “teeth” on his collar to match his dino teeth could also look cool. And maybe a splash of color to his thighs as well.

    I deliberately stayed away from the "teeth" because those are the single feature that most screams "Beast Wars Megatron" to me.

    Something like this?

    I dunno, not trying to sound like a Hasbro shill, but I actually like the Tyrannocon Rex coloring. I like the way that the Dino skin is fully painted/gradient-ed and the inner bot is simple, kind of makes the Dino mode seem more like its main form.
