    Is he going to have a normal right hand or is it going to be that t rex head?

    What's abnormal about having a giant t-rex head for a hand?


    It's all he has :thumb

    He never had a normal right hand in the show ( at least not in season 1 ) . He does have a normal left hand as well as his tail attachment though.

    IMO, they should have built in a second optional hand, despite it not being “toon” accurate. It would have been easy enough from an engineering standpoint. I would have preferred that to the dumb nudie mode they built i

    Nudie mode ? You mean lounge mode ? Lol. Which is also toon accurate to a certain scene . Shit , I’m a little upset he isn’t coming with his hot tub ! Every crime lord deserves one ! ( let’s face it , he was a criminal first and foremost , before he wanted to concur planets ). ;)

    I disagree... If it isn't show accurate I don't want it.

    The trex head is a a gift and a curse. I think I’d hate it if it had a right hand.

    Also head isn’t simply coming out of his wrist you know. It’s like 70% of his arm. Goes past the elbow. Even has completely different joint structure. A right hand would be a poor choice and TT has the correct people on the payroll for sure. :)

    I bet that if Takara doesn't release the right bat arm and boots for a pre-earth bot, a 3rd party will and most likely with a hot tub. I'd be all over that if a set were to be released.

    I associate the bath tub more with TM Megatron. Season One Megs spent most of his time in the Darksyde control chair- I’d love one of those as much as the tub though.
    I’d like to see how someone would handle the liquid part of the tub because I wouldn’t want Megatron displayed looking like he’s sat in an empty bowl for no reason. It’d probably need to be a piece of card that’s could slot in with the CR goo printed on and a perfectly fitted cut out for Megs’ belly to give the impression he’s half immersed.

    Agreed, the control chair would be a better choice.

    Just rechecked my order on AJ. He’ll be delivered 2 days after my birthday. Talk about a sweet gift to myself ! Price is still $225.00 with shipping for me. He’s costing the same as +Laserwave was for me to have him shipped domestic!

    AmiAmi sometimes has pre-orders coming back up:

    True as of right now

    But your pre-order is in with Nippon Yasan, right? Maybe not much difference in price there, then.

    Forgot to cancel my second preorder from AJ. Looks like I'll be getting two of these guys I guess.
