    The pelvis still looks a little on the skinny side but damn, he does look beautiful!

    Wow nice spot, that does look like a hinge or something on the sword. That face, such deep lines!

    It actually just looks like a mechanism to allow the sword to take up less space within the tail. Means the tail can still look good without the sword having to suffer in size like the Universe/Henkei mould. Also some articulation would be nice as a bonus.

    Just saying, I noticed the hinge more than 10 pages ago. (^.^')

    There also looks to be a hinge on his calves. Perhaps that's how the legs fold.

    Being sholder height with Optimus Primal, what do you expect his price will be?

    Oh come on!!!! Just as I'm about to actually leave the house and work out! Release me from your claws for just a moment, Dinobot! I've spent the whole weekend admiring you already!!
    But holy Schmidt, he looks fan-bloody-tastic. There's already a huge improvement over the renders. And already a new pic to bash! ...Yay?

    So you did :D  Seeing that, it appears they've moved the hinge slightly to allow clearance. In the render it looks like it doesn't quite fit.

    I legitimately can't believe how amazing it looks. They fucking did it.... they actually fucking did it.

    BRAVO!
    Looks great! :D 

    EDIT:
    Oh shit! The prototype tools PHENOMINAL! I sure hope we get the photo of the velociraptor mode as well!

    I'm thinking $150 is going to be the final pricing. That's my gut feeling anyway.

    Possibly up to $170 though. Reason being they could put rhinox and similarly sized characters in at $150. And then have Megatron be $200. That would be the full spectrum.

    Fine with me. For Anime Export that's $105.

    OK, that changes everything. That's $120 at Anime Export. Start doing the math if I'm going to obtain 3.

    So they didn't have this on display because...? I guess so that the "Why do I even come here when I can just look everything up online"-crowd gets thrown a bone.

    Looks great, I only hope we'll see pre-orders before the end of 2017...

    I actually like that less than the render...need better pics:) . Hopefully someone snapped the shot next to primal as well. They've nailed Primal and Cheetor's likenesses, so I expect Dinobot will be he same.
