    what about his lack of a waist swivel and shit knee bend? the kingdom one gets a closer, more accurate look towards the show, even in wasp mode

    And that the arms fold up in the same direction, and the way the robot legs face and fold up. Compare it to the original BW mold from 1996 to see how differently it transforms. This one nearly rips the transformer from T30 perfectly despite being an entirely new mold. anybody can see that

    the arms actually seem to end up under the wasp mode head on the kingdom one, hence why the single front leg is on the forearm instead of the leg like the t30s one

    I love T30 Waspinator, and I’m liking most of what I see here. There’s always room for more Waspinators in my collection!

    My T30 Waspinator didn’t survive a few months in storage, the wing joint snapped and the chest/shoulder assembly pins all cracked so this is a welcome chance at another version. Looking forward to it.

    Is that page certain that this figure is official and not a custom?

    I want to see when he retracts later.

    I hope to army build Waspinator. Give me Buzz Saw, Skywasp, the other 2 Waruder paint jobs, and Buzzbomb (Fox kids repaint). Maybe even Venin/Venom.

    they’re all dangerously competent but are blindly loyal to Waspinator

    96: Buzz Saw, Fox kids repaint (paint job used for Buzzbomb)
    98/Transmetal: Fox kids repaint and the canceled Horrorcon repaint. Both paint jobs were used for two Waruder troops. Which were repurposed as Skywasp and nearly Buzz Saw.
    T30: the four Waruder troops, one of which was repurposed as Bug Bite
    Mini-Con: Venin and Buzz Saw (Waspinator’s sons in the Legends comic)

    …I really want to build a hive here

    Still baffled how the title We Are Not Your Kind came from All Out Life's lyrics but wasn't included on it.

    Wasp legs look like shit but otherwise seems fine. I'm not too thrilled with this update but I missed the last one so it might warrant a buy.

    Well, if the leakers confirm it, then...

    Hasbro challenged you, make your best move.

    If Inferno ended up being Deluxe, I'd definitely skip it. The Predacons need at least one Voyager.

    They certainly do. I don't care what the box says -- Kingdom Dinobot will be on the Maximal shelf of the Detolf.

    Yeah I had to pack mine up and purposefully set it on top of everyone. Sucks yours didn't survive.

    The Maximals don't have a Leader class figure. And while story wise he ends up a Maximal, the toyline has Predacon Dinobot at the Voyager pricepoint.

    I also don't think Waspinator to Inferno works if you want a *retail* Deluxe. Or if you're willing to sacrifice the blender butt (which I'm guessing HasTak wouldn't).

    Well, the Maximals do technically have T-wrecks, but I don't count him either. Megatron being Leader Class is why I'm willing to let the Preds lose a should-be Voyager in Terrorsaur. Still it doesn't matter what the box says, Dinobot is a Maximal and Hasbro is banking on people knowing it. If they weren't, I'd question why they don't just use him as an extra Maximal and swap out Tigatron for an extra Pred. Let's not forget Tigatron. By the time he comes around, the Maximals will have four Voyagers.

    Thankfully, I think you're right.

    You're right, the arms totally fold in the same direction despite them just floating outside of the wasp body on T30 and them folding into the body on the new one o_O  Sure, anybody can totally see they transform the same :rolleyes:

    Oh no please, not a lazy attempt at a new inferno ant figure.....give him a proper size class and mold

    On the waspinator mold, maybe if they choosed to put all the insect legs on the arms, they could have been hidden better, pretty sure a third party could have find a way to propose a set of foldable legs, telescopic or something
