    Wasn't trying to say it as a nitpick, just a difference from the way they've been doing things up to now.

    You'd think it looks less cartoony given the others had smooth sculpt and Dinobot actually has scales sculpted all over his body. Maybe it's the eyes. They look like they're skewed upwards.

    You're right, that is funny!

    No joke. I agree there.

    He was idiotically angsty and moody all the damn time. I get what they were TRYING to do... but it felt kind of flat to me.

    But this archetype is quite popular with fans, so despite how annoying some characters are (i.e. Prime "Jacky"), they are revered for being "rebel loners!" :lol  But hey, I'd rather everyone love Dinobot than to hear any more praise lavished on Optimus! :thumb 

    My fave was Rattrap. :eek:

    Also, I'd love a $15 deluxe Dinobot instead. :)  Cause he does round out the BW cast, and I'm not shelling $90+ when I already have a good chunk of the cast in Generations form! (Oh, and his original BW toy always looked so awful in alt mode that I could never bring myself to get it...)

    I mentioned I was getting 3. One for Playing with, second for sealed and the last for Emergency. When I say Emergency, I was saying in case the first one broke, but now after watching Double Dinobot I may also think about emergency if I ever met Scott McNeil.

    He lives! :D  Looks fantastic to me, too. In this instance, "cartoony" (for me) = "accurate."

    Will surely look even better once painted (stripes and eyes, especially.) Added note: I ADORE those molded scale details! He's gonna feel really tactile in-hand I expect. :D

    Do you think he's going to be molded in brown and painted pink? Or vice versa?

    He does look good, no doubt. Cartoony would work, but I can see some folk wanting a more realistic look (I wonder if they can do an alternate head?).

    Really, I'm waiting to be astounded by the intricate transformation and hidden robot parts - but probably a bit of shell-forming to achieve that. :rolleyes2  The BW line is famous for shell-forming, so I think that's just par-for-the-course, not necessarily a negative. :thumb

    Must come with goofy eye-rolling faces as well.

    Not only the eyes, the brow part looks changable as well, so he'll be even more expressive!

    Yeah, it's a bit odd that he's textured instead of using paint for all of the details like the other two. But maybe it works out better that way for him.

    Regardless, pumped to finally have some update on Dinobot. Even if it is just... when to expect an actual update.

    Base plastic might be pink but I'm sure he'll have both colors painted on.

    Yep, sure looks like it. Took another look at my magazine and there seems to be an extra articulation point there. Awesome!
