    That sculpt really is crazy good though. Looks like he jumped straight from the screen. Of course, that’s the case for all the BW MPs so far. Pumped to have this guy in my collection soon.

    I don't mind the rhino horn all that much (though agree it's a weird choice), but those hollow palms are unsightly...

    Still looking forward to him, can't wait to see them all side by side.

    I'm just curious about why the horn is like that. There is subtle segmenting in the show but it looks nothing like that. Is this a bot mode thing? Having difficulty finding pics of him from behind in just a quick Google. In fact the only places I can find he has segments in his horn are from those weird mobile games.

    Oh, it's genuinely bonkers. Like, I don't think any Rhinox figure we've ever had has really ever been terribly close to how he looks in the show. I know I'll get crucified for this, but I think Kingdom came the closest overall in terms of overall body shape, with Takara's Beast Wars again improving on the paint job. But the upgrade from that (or T30, or what have you) to this is legitimately massive. It's an absolutely beautiful sculpt, and in terms of upgrade from previous figures, I think might only be topped by Dinobot.

    Yeah, I have no idea what they were thinking here, it's definitely a baffling decision..

    Wowowow. No street cred for Megatron for them nailing the sculpt in both modes with no compromises and even somehow engineering his panel backpack forming into the same shape as it was in the show? I'm telling my mom...

    Giving you a like for praising the MP, not because I agree with you on Kingdom Rhinox :p

    I'm getting these off youtube, so the quality is obviously pretty crap (since they took down the HD versions of them), but even with the low quality it's pretty clear there was no significant grooves like they are giving us.

    I don't have any beast wars bots outside of the anime ones like Lio. Maybe I'll jump on this

    This wasn't about which MP figure was nailed the best, but which one is a bigger upgrade from previous figures.

    The upgrade from this to MP is pretty big, but not as big as Rhinox in my opinion:

    The ai upscaling on those vids often fudges a lot of the smaller details.

    Ah, did they get reposted? Cause they were taken down before. Nice!

    Yeah, this was a concern of mine as well, but even still, the originals don't really show any evidence of this.

    Guess someone is going to have to make a horn upgrade kit. With recovery sippy beer helmet.

    Assuming the horns can be removed without the need for pin removal and such.

    And hell yeah on the beer helmet!

    I wonder if they'd be able to do something that sits upon the current horn rather than removing and replacing (and make it look good).
