    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

    Articulation, yeeess!
    Many BW toys including Dinobot 2 Are lacking thigh swivels. And by now I count thigh swivels to basic crucial articulation. If they did season 2 and 3 characters they'd of course get ankle tilts too, yes.
    But there's one more thing.
    Many, including Dinobot 2, have a (realistic) Problem with proportions. A new Dinobot 2 could give us a better proportioned chest, shoulder guards and a better face sculpt
    Aaand there's even one more thing,
    Scale. Might not account for Dinobot 2 (we don't have comparisons yet) but certainly for some like Megatron and Rattrap

    well we’re not even getting the most accurate scale with kingdom and I don’t mean with compared to G1 figures. They’re doing their best but it’s exactly accurate

    I know the reason, I was making a joke about accuracy.

    I'm not jonesing too hard on the Kingdom beasts. But I'd buy a new TM Megatron on sight.

    I'd only be pissed if Rhinox and Tigatron are close in size and I'm afraid that's exactly what's happening, because Dinobot does not appear to be Cyclonus sized

    Tigatron and Rhinox really aren't that much smaller than Dinobot though, head shorter at most and given the size difference between Primal and Dinobot, it's possible they will sit somewhere in the middle

    I hope you're right. I mean I hope the size difference is satisfactory

    The difference in height is not that big actually, both Tigatron and Rhinox are consistently about slightly less than half a head shorter than Dinobot.

    Here's one showing that Rhinox is just slightly taller than Tigatron, having them the same height would be acceptable as long as Rhinox is more "massive":

    So, as long as Dinobot is at least a third of a head taller than both Rhinox and Tigatron I will be satisfied.

    But that's the thing, it's NOT a more realistic version of the dino used for the original toy.
    It's equally realistic, because NEITHER was realistic.

    It's like saying "realistic" werewolf. It's a made-up thing, so by definition it CAN'T be realistic.

    Can't we just paint the tip of the sword (brown) to blend in with the dino mode, the rest of the sword a metallic colour of our choosing, the "bone armour" gold and then call it a day? With those changes, I would say that this would bump it up to "Takara" level paint apps. I don't think that's too hard for most of us to do (but I understand we shouldn't really have to to so too).

    Semantics. In this case, more realistic just means more detailed and less like a CGI model from the 90s. It's not an uncommon usage of the word that's used to answer the question, "What would it look like if it existed in our reality?". Like the Pokemon in Detective Pikachu.

    I'd gladly pay leader class price point for a Dinobot that was thoroughly painted to match cartoon bot mode. Anybody else ever wish a figure got the benefit of additional detailing or accessories, even if it meant a higher price point?

    I'm getting my wish in Kingdom with that with Tigatron getting bumped to a Voyager rather than being a Cheetor repaint, and I really like how they handled the voyager Hot Rod

    I'm Weird I want the repaints or stuff that's not available yet

    Rather have Twrecks or Rexxy than Megatron
    Rather have Skywarp than Airazor
    Rather have Grimlock than Dinobot

    Man.. I hope you're right. Thanks for clarifying scale. There's a Chance still.. Rhinox could be the right size cos he's so bulky and Tigatron could be the right scale because of the included accessoriesn(hopefully more than just the gut gun)

    I hope the weapons pack also includes Dinobots insane season 2 loadout and Megatron's hunting gun alongside Cheetor's gut gun

    Why's it got to be throbbing though?
