    I don't even know if its the posture of the raptor hands so much as the sculpt/shape. They're too long and straight, looking more like paddles than JP-style claws.

    Wow. That is an... unfortunate-looking tail.

    I dunno, as good as the bot mode on this figure is I really am not feeling that beast mode. Also the color of his blade is kinda baffling.

    Id have prefered an unpainted gray sword over that. And i know how much they love their unpainted gray plastic so it shouldnt have been an issue

    Why did they make Dinobot's sword look like something you'd find at the back of someone's nightstand or dresser drawer? o_O

    The proper name doesn't have the ring to it like Velociraptor does.

    Seperately, we seem to have no issues with Grimlock and the other Dinobots dragging their tails. I think this is whiney basement nerd speak about a 20 dollar toy. Seriously get over yourselves.

    Can't put to words how happy I am Dinobot isn't slathered with paint. I want a fun, playable toy that strikes a balance between fun and accuracy, without the fear of paint chipping. If you want absolute accuracy with all paint apps, go for the masterpiece one.

    The more I see of Dinobot, the more I want him lol. The sword sucks, sure, but I can paint that silver and that would fix my biggest problem with him. Beyond that, he looks amazing, and I can't wait to get my hands on him!

    I'll also probably paint the sword silver.

    Man those hips are a huge bummer. Very minor ‘that looks nice’ for robot mode but now the dinosaur mode looks awful from any angle you can see it’s front. Real head scratcher there.

    those sassy dino hands. Really hoping for an upgrade kit that adds some awesome show related accessories as well as new dino hands. Like his big freaking rifle and bandolier. Maybe a golden disk or two. And eye lasers.

    I hope we get Dinobot II. But they need a repaint, right? :D

    technically you could make thruster from a Dinobot 2 mold but I honestly wonder if that’ll happen anyway with this mold. I wouldn’t put any money we’re getting anything post season one of beast wars of characters in kingdom

    We are supposedly getting BW Grimlock from him, so that takes care of the repaint. We might see SG Dinobot in the SG line too, if it does well enough. I doubt they'd do Dinobot II from him, since the adherence to scale means he'd be too small. I'd still love to see one, but chances are it won't be from the Kingdom mold.

    Dinobot II would need to either be a heavy heavy remold or a totally brand new figure if they want to do it right. I could see a much simpler remold used to make the Cyber Raptor prototypes Megatron made before completing the Transmetal 2 technology. They’d basically just need to remold the back of the dino mode to add the control system, give him a color scheme similar to Grimlock’s with some added silver paint apps and bright red eyes. I’d be down for that. Even though the cyber raptors never had an alt mode in the show, it would be cool to give them one, perhaps with a remolded head that homages Dinobot II.

    I mean they kinda already did do Dinobot 2 right the first time. There’s nothing to improve on it other than size. Same with most of beast wars season 2 and three. Extra articulation(ankles?) sure but they’re all still very good toys. There’s not really anything to improve other than maybe faces but I can look passed that. I have my transmetal Tarantulus on shelf next to all my new kingdom figure and yeah fits right in. It’s just season one that needed some updating.

    I don't know, I don't remember TM Megatron breaking so easily on the show.

    I for one would like to see them redo the Transmetals. I had bowed out of buying toys when the transmetals were on shelves. So I'd like to see the designs at retail again.

    thats the plastic that was used. Not different than the QC issues we get with a figure now here and there but the toy and it’s engineering was fine and was accurate to what he was in the show
