    The horns are on the same sprue as all the other translucent parts are. Same color.

    As much as I like this guy, I am somewhat tired of the tried and true flip the legs to the outside and fold approach to the transformation. Not PX fault, it's like every dino is doing some variation of it.

    all the transparent colors seems the same. Maybe the one on the chest and eyes seem more red cause they have a red baking, but I guess they are not a dark red themselves, thus somewhat orange, though a dark more red orange I guess.

    There are two things I wish were different
    1) The forarm joints more tighter or ratchet, because I wasn't able to hold the shield properly on one of the arms, and the other one could, but not the best. I wasn't able to thighten with the screw. Cubrar forarms are much thighter.
    2) The Yellow is the unpainted one FP uses on their early test shots!!! I wish it was a nicer color one, either darker, or a nice metallic gold. I can paint some of the parts, but others I feel will be vulnerable to scratching, so not sure. The Grey and red and transparent parts and other paint details are really nice though.

    I am still unsure if I should keep him with my dinos, or display him with my MMC Reformatted line, cause he seems so much like a warrior and updated without any chrome / metallic paint that he would fit in there too.

    Makes sense. I guess I just figured there could be two different colored transparent sprues.


    Yeah I guess that is it. Though the eyes really do look to be a different color to me. But like you said it's possible cause it's lighting up differently. I'm not about to disassemble his head just to see for sure if it's the same color as the swords and everything else. It makes sense though. Just could have sworn they were actually red. And in some pics I saw the dino's horns looked red too.

    Thanks for the confirmation guys. :)

    I'm not really bothered by it as most seem to be. But I did try to give the figure Slag's swords, but they wouldn't fit. So that's as far as I'm willing to make a change.

    Has anybody else had problems with stress marks/tears on the pegs that hold his tail to the inside of his legs in robot mode? I had to shave the pegs short to keep the tail sections from levering them completely off.

    Ugh I so regret going with FP after these last few releases. FPs don't look like anything like the characters from the game.

    Well, to be fair, FP was never going for the game models, it was a completely new take on these characters.

    I'm unable to get a photo-- I'm not going to be back around my Quirinus for some time. But, it's the tab that holds the tail-halves in place inside his legs in robot mode. It passes through a notch in his tail-spike. You can't miss it; it's literally the only thing that holds his tail to the inside of his leg.

    I can't believe nobody else has this issue; I know I should be happy that I may just have a dud and that my mod seems to have fixed it, and I am glad that nobody else's toy has broken, but from What I see it seems like an engineering issue over a one-off QC one. Any pressure on the tail once it's pegged in seems to create stress marks-- bordering on actual tears-- on this peg..
