Pretty sure Netflix is over after wave 3
UPDATE FOR CANADIANS
The Pulsecon Preorders are up on EB Games
EB Games | The largest video game retailer in Canada. Play. Trade. Save. - EBGames.ca
They seem to be rolling out slowly, so keep refreshing to see if they add any others. I was told at my local EB Games that they will have Rodimus up for preorder at some point
there were rumours a while back that netflix liked it enough to commission a new series so figures may appear as part of that or as part of the inevitable beast wars push during the new movie which again by rumours is meant to be based on beast wars. heck i'm just hoping for a quick and dirty repaint but my wildest dream is these molds given the telemocha treatment
Will get them all of course cause been a Completist & I rather deal with the toys then people of the fandom A lot hard to trust now these days. But Tracks Needs some white paint on his cannons & Middle painted black of course.
Can someone explain to my WHY the f*** Rhinox has fou toes on each foot, when he should have two to be animation model accurate? The feet are entirely fake pieces. The fact that FAKE pieces look so dumb drives me crazy
solid fake piece for the entire foot:
second piar of toes on the outside of the feet:
It looks so dumb
Transformation is very straight forward and cheats with nothing but fake parts (feet, chest)
every detail including that horrendous head is not CGI accurate vs Primal who has CGI detail slightly stylized
why the toy accurate crotch?
FOUR toes on the feet?!
Rhino mode still has canine teeth all over the place (rhinos have molars mostly)
Conclusion: Whoever designed this has probably never seen a cgi render of Rhinox
VAGUELY resembles Rhinox
looks cool objectively
very articulated -> forward and backward butterfly joints, slight up/down in hands due to transformation, waist swivel unexpected
many molar teeth on chest plate (the only thing I wanted changed with the unrealistic T-rex teeth on his chest in the animation model)
I don't have the T30, so of course I'll have to buy this. Am I looking forward to it? No, but I'll probably love it in hand.. with a new head... and new feet...
Nope you're not.
I recently got the mp tracks so I don't need this guy. He's okay. Not the best
It looks like three to me, which makes it animal accurate rather than show accurate.
Very easy pass for me. I don't like the bot mode at all.
But I've posted evidence of the fourth toe right there in my post. It's where the red arrow points
I like it overall. I do have major gripes with the details though. Devil is in the detail sort of situation
Yeah, but counting that one I can only see two and one on the other foot in that photo because of the lighting.
Is that what that is? I thought it was a heel.
Yeah, I wish my eyes were deceiving me, but that's what it is. You can see 1, 2 and 3 very clearly in other pictures. 4 looks like a toe as well. So yeah, 99% sure he has 4 toes which sucks
No no the middle toe gets replaced by the robot foot in the show. This one has two side toes by the middle foot and for no reason two more side toes surrounding the heel as well...
All of your points hit what really pisses me off on this design.To add, the bottom rhino jaw should be missing behind his robot head.
I always saw rhinox as like he's got a hood behind his head with the edge being the rhino teeth. Since they used a fake jaw chest they needed to have the rhino jaw open like 180 and hide. They really failed to capture the character. I'm going to still buy it for completion but use my lgex instead.
You two made me look this up, yeah you're right. I like the end product though and I hope we get Torca or Ironhide from it.
This is what buggs me so much. That's why I asked if anyone can make sense of it. I can understand that it's easier to mirror both sides of the foot, but there's no reason to put any toes around the heels in the first place, unless, I thought, the heel toes are from the Rhino legs, but turns out they're not. The entire foot is one molded piece.
Like you said, there's no reason for toes in the back. The designer must've been drinking or something when they designed the feet. I will Dremel them away and hope that some 3rd party comes up with a sweet head. Not sure if anything can be done with those shoulder squares to turn them into the proper shoulders
In two pictures the lower jaw can be retracted into the mouth. Not sure if that's dislocating it, stressing the plastic, intended or unintended though. Also might be hard to get out
The Kingdom BW figures aren't really trying to be animation model accurate though. None of them are, all take liberties with their designs, both in beast and robot modes (robot modes mainly take liberties due to the decision to do realistic beast modes)
And poor Apeface and Snapdragon sit alone in the corner and comfort each other.
It's WalMart. Whatever it is called, there will be another exclusive line following Netflix.
You're making me stay up past midnight researching rhino feet.
