    I think Dinobot would work better without the fake-eyes. I'm all for faux-parts if it means screen accuracy but it just looks weird here. That said, super pumped for these two.

    Yeah,
    yeah it looks like someone snapped his wrist joint and completely deformed his legs. Ball joints at the wrist could have fixed the pronated wrist problem I think.

    I agree that it is expensive, but you're not just paying for size. A lot of it is also engineering and paint.

    Huh, something I didn't notice before... How disproportionate Dinobot's hands/arms are. Like, the arms are super thin/long and the hands are huge!

    I was just thinking about the MP Dinobot and the Original Rock Bubble Dinobot I have stored away for a Then and Now display. Was thinking about getting another Kingdom Dinobot to do the same with this time with that and another Rock Bubble Dinobot. So I was looking on ebay and noticed one Rock Bubble Dinobot with the price tag still on it. My how Transformer toys were so reasonable back then.

    Not just the hands, but IMO the arms are too thin for the whole body. The legs are pretty beefy, the torso is of course beefy, and then the arms are just sticks.

    Not thrilled if I’m honest. Still excited for the figure but I’m hoping he feels more proportionate in-hand.

    "Siri, what is inflation?"

    Seriously guys. We've been doing this every time prices change for like 20 years. You're starting to sound like my dad when he talks about how you could go to the theater and see a movie for a quarter and still get change back.

    Yup. The MP got around this by having a second set of robot hands instead of relying on his raptor feet.

    But that's not a luxury the Kingdom version can afford.

    I mean, yes and no. I put $10 into a inflation calculator, set it to 1997, and I get around $15-$16. So that doesn't account for the entire increase.

    Just a minor tweak of the arms. Honestly, I don't think a set of slightly thicker legs would have hurt the dino mode all that much... But what do I know? (^.^')

    There are also more parts in newer figures, which also increases cost.

    Hasn't plastic become more expensive, though? Not taking inflation into account.

    I don't think they were that cheap back then. Could just be a discounted price tag.
