    HOLY SHIT PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF PRIMUS LET THIS BE REAL!!!! This looks way better than that shitty attempt of a figure 6 years ago. And yes there's no way in hell that's a retool. Yes it's similar to the original fig with the Raptor Rib cage and all, however it looks like it could be a voyager and the hollow simplicity of it makes it more likely to be a hasbro fig rather than a masterpice. The only thing I can complain about if this is true is that the Raptor head is a little derpy, although it's still better than the universe ver plus this is the same company that made derpy raptor figs for the Jurassic World toyline. If real then it looks like we won't have to deal with shit retools next year after all...

    And because BW figures aren't made of squares.

    It's unfortunate that I don't like Beast Wars. The figure looks pretty cool

    Well, I consider the 3P not dinobots a step in the right direction, their dino modes are not completely square and does incorporate organic shapes.

    So who knows, I can see some 3P being able to work some not BW. And I feel that Dinobutt would be the easiest BW figure to tackle first.

    If this IS an official release, I'm game. It fits the "simplistic" style that we've been getting as of late, and I hope that it's voyager sized, maybe a bit taller than Rhinox, but not much. If it's unofficial, then please by all means let it be voyager sized as well. Let Takara handle MP and MP Scaled stuff. This has no where near the engineering that a Masterpiece should have.
    And it looks far from final, so maybe it could get beefed up in the legs. But I want it. And I want the BW Grimlock repaint/head remold from it, too!

    Huh?

    Are we looking at the same Dinobots? What "organic" shapes do you see?

    Also, the Dinobots are still G1.

    Bodies that are mostly round and curved, long curved fluid necks, curved fluid tails, need I go on?

    Man it would be depressing if it was because I refuse to buy 3rd party toys.

    That's not organic at all. All of those things you're talking about are the same sterile, clean shapes as always. Organic isn't "fluid." There's no skin texture, all the curves and lines come to harsh edges, and they're all covered in excess detail. They're all simple shapes you could make in a computer easily.

    Me too, I refuse to buy 3rd Party TF figures due to the fact that they are so expensive.

    Universe Dinobot? It looks similar enough... at first glance. I just remembered that the Uni Dinobot doesn't transform the bot arms into its legs, however. So never mind. >_>

    It does tug away one set of limbs into its belly, fwiw. *shrug*

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is official. I remember a log while back when Rhinox, Waspinator and Rattrap came out that hasbro mentioned at a con or something that we would be getting a new Dinobot and Cheetor along with some other Beast Wars characters in the Generations line up .

    I hope its not 3rd party though.

    Is this 3rd party or a possible real deal?

    If it's official I bet it's generations and not masterpiece.
    Masterpiece designers would have been able to make a much better torso instead of one that transforms nearly identically to the original toy. At least if they're striving for cartoon accuracy, it's already off since dinobot's body is quite squat and has a defined torso and mid-rift.

    I'm pretty happy with Henkie Dinobot. We need a Terrorsaur far more.

    Was this proven to be a 3rd party?
