    The beast mode head has a build-in eye swapping gimmick though, that's pretty neat.

    They missed a trick there but hell it's close enough for me, especially if that stand can clip down on the side. Also I wonder if the clips on the side mean more stands are coming and more importantly more BW MPs, it could just be so that the stand can be configured a bunch of different ways too though.

    YUP! If you notice, those plastic pieces are clear white. Meaning to say that the eyes light up green!

    It actually does have left-right articulation too!

    So looks like we're getting 4 faceplates; Evil grin (squinty,) bemused disgust, angry and Bloodlust yell/laser-shooting eyes. The problem with Beast Wars characters is they're all just so damn expressive. Even 4 expressions is barely cracking the surface of the range of emotions Dinobot or any of them displayed.
    I'd rather they were cast in a transparent green as his lasers were only ever green and then I'd could have them on display without needing to use the light up gimmick but I have paint so that will also work.

    Does it? They don't show off the different raptor eyes in this set of photos.

    Oh I forgot about those floaty platform things. Maybe one of the future Predacon MP's will include one~

    Looks stunning, best BW MP yet!

    I'm just wondering where the Dino mode panels go in bot mode. Presumably they all end up inside the chest along with the raptor head, since it looks pretty wide and deep. And conversely, where do the bot legs go in raptor mode?

    You were right about the clip! Also, his dino wrists are fully articulated!

    I do think he has more squinted beast eyes in one picture but that might be me seeing things. But it was listed in the features with everything else that we see now, and there are those hinges that seem rather obvious.

    Dinomode is gappy as hell...but that was kind of to be expected. I don't care, this is great, especially in bot mode which is how I'd display him most of the time anyway. <3

    Those parts like the stand feel like they’re there more to justify the price to people who don’t get what a high partscount on a near-MP-10 sized toy does to cost.

    I do have a knitpick.

    I wish the toes could spread out a bit. From this angle, and the shape of the leg into the smaller foot, they kindof look like pig feet.
