I'm really hoping a Terrorsaur leak is not too far behind.
Wowsers I forgot T30 had a ball sack lol.
OMG transmetal Waspy! Oh I loved that toy. Him and transmetal Tarantulas were my favorite transmetals
The articulation alone is reason to replace mine. I still don't understand people not liking this one, Rhinox I get. The t30 is phenomenal, and much more realistic/cg accurate.
The only thing more CGI accurate about the T30 Rhinox is his head and guns
While that’s certainly true, I feel like it understates the relative greater importance of the head sculpt.
It would be like comparing two wax statues of yourself and saying that one is more accurate because of torso details despite having Richard Nixon’s head.
“Yeah, but the nipples are spot on.”
Because he's shorter, the yellow plastic is too pale, the gun is missing the dart, the bug legs are too fat and the pair of legs is place incorrectly on the legs rather than the arms. It's definitely not like the difference between the two Rhinoxs at all but it's clear this one still is just slightly worse than the original but made for people who can't get it anymore.
Ankle tilts doesn't override the other areas where it falls short in.
What the hell are you talking about? The toy didn't come out that long ago. You're talking about it like it was a daydream people conjured up, like remembering they have a blue Bluestreak as a kid.
But the head is still very obviously Rhinox, so that's not really a good comparison since I look nothing like Richard Nixon. The 96 toy (10th anniversary pictured because the original lacks the gold paint), CGI model, T30 figure and even the Kingdom figure are all pretty obviously the same core design. Even the T30 one isn't perfect as he's lacking the lips from the CGI model and his mouth doesn't go all the way across to each side of his head. Kingdom looks to pull more from the original toy head, but it still looks like Rhinox.
Waist rotation and actual useful knees do though.
The thing about Rhinox's headsculpt is that it would be a nonfactor in a vaccuum, but the fact that everyone else is so accurate while he got a reimagined head design kinda sticks out among all the other BW characters
It's such a good toy. He looks so damn cool, and I love that his third mode is literally a fighter jet. Everyone else just gets vehicle bits added on, but Waspinator is practically a full-on triplechanger with bug eyes.
And even then the head isn't actually accurate, it's just more accurate than Kingdom's.
Neither one of them are equivalent to the other characters in Kingdom who all have virtually identical headsculpts to the show.
Primal has added greebles, notably on his chin, that aren't present on the cgi model or old toy
Yeah, Rattrap has some added detail there and there too, lots of them do, but Rhinox has completely different shapes and proportions on nearly every single detail of his head. He really feels like a different design ethos was used on him.
He's got ear muffs, that's pretty much the only difference I see honestly
But that's just surface detail, the shapes and "likeness" are not changed, certainly not to Rhinox's level.
"everyone else is so accurate"
Changes to a design, surface detail or otherwise, mean they are less accurate, so to pretend that all of the Kingdom BW heads are show accurate except for Rhinox is a fallacy. This is not an opinion, it's not an assessment of the "level" of accuracy. It's an objective fact.
I mean that's your opinion, not everyone has the same opinion as you
He came out 7 years ago didnt he? I would consider that old as in three years hes gonna be 10 years old and time goes by fast
Another objective fact is that if I grab your face and paint lines on it, your mother will still recognize it as you, but if I grab your face and make your nose smaller and your eyes narrower and your forehead larger and your chin thinner and so on you will become someone else entirely. There are details that affect the feel of a character significantly more than others, which is Rhinox's case. Compare his 3d model's head to Scorponok's 3d model head and then to both of their toys and you'll see instantly what people mean.
If you dont like rinoxs new head why not just swap it with the t30 one?
