    I read in a group on Facebook that Dinobot is getting reissued in June. Is there any evidence to support this?

    Hm. Hope this is legit, I missed him the first time around and I’d really like to get him from Amazon JP for a lower price. Somewhere around $200?

    Just got my reissue. It has a new production stamp code. It has a 35th Anniversary physical sticker on the box.

    Shoulders seem fine. Lights work. I’ll have to come back in 24-48 hours to report if the batteries fully die or not.

    I did get a fluke though. The ballpoint on Dinobot neck has some weird grove along the side of it. And because of that when I rotate the head to look left or right the ballpoint seems to naturally unscrew itself from the neck. So the head kind of starts to come off each time I pose my toy. This is not a problem for me. But I still wouldn’t have liked to have reported that my new toy was flawless.

    Other than that minor problem my toy is flawless haha.

    I don’t think it’s particularly shiny or foil haha. But it’s a cool toy!

    I didn’t realize the reissue was out already. My wallet’s about to feel the hurt. But it hurts so good.

    Where did you find him?

    Doubtful @HolyCulture Would have let us know. It appears there are no noticeable changes/improvements upon the original release. It's more likely this might happen with a TT reissue but I wouldn't hold your breath....of course there are other options on the horizon.

    I am terribly swamped with work and my baby. Life is hell right now hahaha

    But I don’t remember new ratchets on the new figure. I’ll give it a once over again tonight if I don’t pass out after dinner.

    You’re right but I was rushing to simply transform it last night.

    One bit of good news my batteries still work haha. That’s pretty great!

    I work in my house so luckily I can take a quick snap like this on my way to the restroom haha.

    I'm glad your electronics work this time! I have IT-02 on pre-order, my hope is he'll be in full working order with lots of nice little improvements and he can take over as my bot mode Dinobot (with fully working eyes). My original has enough little paint chips and imperfections in robot mode that he'd be best as the raptor mode guy.

    He can’t be more expensive than Megatron. There’s no way I am paying more for Dinobot than I did for Megs- especially for the reissue.

    Paid $220 for Megatron.
    Toy Dojo has Dinobot for $280.

    This is exactly how I feel. At $200 it’s an easier decision, but he feels so overpriced. I’d much prefer a cheaper version with no electronics.
