    That can probably only get you so far though. The more you fold and slide parts, the thicker the stack becomes. I just can't see those wings ever fitting inside his chest. Then again Dinoot appears to fit half a raptor in his chest so at this point i'm willing to believe TT can do anything. Terrorsaur is the same height as Primal but not as buff and barrel-chested so there's not quite as much storage space.
    Blackarachnia has to be the most impossible though doesn't she? Her, Terrorsaur and Airazor. The Transmetals would be an absolute piece of cake in comparison to all the season one forms. Just imagine how much additional articulation they could throw in!

    I could see Terrorsaur having a Sunstreaker sized backpack of compressed wings.

    Remember, these figures won't look perfectly screen accurate, just incredibly close.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but I've been studying the raptor legs/robot arms to figure out how the feet/hands swap out without parts forming, and I think they are actually stored in the robot mode biceps. I think Dinobot's overall transformation is going to be above and beyond anything we've seen before. Seems like Takara is pulling all the stops to make these new MP's work, and if the price increases because of it I have no problem with that.

    Yeah, all the raptor kibble is compressed into the chest of dinobot, the arms, the real head, all the raptor skin, heck, and he's not bulky.

    Storing them in the bicep was how I imagined they'd do it before seeing the prototype so I'm super impressed with myself right now :cool: 
    One iota of my imagination is as creative as the masterpiece designers!

    That looks ridiculously good. The hands excite me way more than I would have ever expected plastic hands on a transforming toy to:)

    Veeeery nice, yeeees! Although I do think the inside of the tail should be red instead. But holy smokes does this look damn good. RIP my wallet.

    It is red. Just turned very fleshy looking when I graded the colours but I kind of like it.

    Thanks for the great digibashes you keep churning out. Really helps getting a better feel for what the final figure will look like.

    He looks mighty impressive and I can't wait to see more prototype images. Perhaps in this month's figure king?

    So hyped!

    I'm really enjoying doing these bashes. Only ever done two for Shadow Panther before and that's a character I have zero knowledge of or interest in so to be doing it for my all time favourite transformer and most wanted figure ever is simply a pleasure and dare I say it- an honour. Feels like I'm developing a new hobby but a very particular one which I'll only get to practice a couple times a year whenever a new BW MP is revealed. In an odd way it's actually allowing me to bond more with the design and really get to know it. Not that I was ever on the fence about how he looks but now, I've simply spent so long staring at him, I'm definitely attached.

    Anyways, here are the last ones from me until more pics get released. Just updated colours (the red is red now) and replacing the render with the proto in the size comparison shot.

    Jesus, his tail is going to be long... It didn't quite sink in, until now, just how big he is going to be.

    Dude... Today is my birthday, and honestly... this digibash is a fantastic birthday present. I've been just staring at it for like, 10-15 minutes. My wife told me I should marry it. Fantastic job man, you have increased the excitement in me to unsafe levels.
