    Really hoping to see the changes you are talking about. From the renders, the dino head doesn't do the raptor justice (for me).
    I'm really not bothered about panels, I just don't see how people can admire them so much.
    The Primal wireframes blew me away and I was amazed by the Cheetor prototype, just not feeling this one, and am contemplating why.

    I don't believe this. When did Takara show us something that wasn't final? I don't think that ever happened, not in the MP line at least, pretty sure not in other lines either.
    Like when they "accidentally leaked" that MP Megs prototype, the one with the drooping barrel. They even marked it as "in need of improving". Guess what, the final version is the same.

    Updated colour group shot. I'd personally have him a bit taller but this would be a fair size from TT.

    I have been keeping a tab open with the best digibash I've come across. Just closed the last tab and using this one as my new one, cause that is a fantastic image! That makes the beast mode look fantastic! I'm going to be looking at this thing daily.

    Sorry man, but while I respect differing of opinions, I actually think your opinion is straight up crazy right now. I'm looking at the coloured versions and I'm seeing goddamn Dinobot in a way that I never imagined possible. Clearly you aren't going to start liking it just cause I call you crazy, and I'm not going to start hating it because holy smokes that thing is a work of engineering art. So I'm going to let it go and continue to admire it.

    Cheers dude, I made that bash so I could save it on my phone and have a good stare when I'm bored at work so I'm glad others are going to enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed colouring it.

    Edit: It's so damn hard to look away from! I need Dinobot in my hands now!!

    Now seeing Chopper Face's digibash, great digibash by the way, but man look at that neck! And that head, it's bloated. Excepting the complexity of the transformation, the bot mode looks downright amateurish to me, the original 3d model has a lot more detail to it.

    Is it just me, or does it look like there's a joint about half way up the sword? Perhaps it folds up when it is placed in the tail to allow for some tail articulation?

    2 people ignoring the 'no photos' rule. One seems to be a wuss and is doing a quick phone shot. The other guy said F it. He set up a whole tripod and video camera. Screw your no photo rule! :D

    Also, it appears that there are grooves in the sword itself so that it would sit flush when folded.
