    I was wondering why they wouldn't show the side view or back view of the dino mode.. probably because it looks bad.

    Did a little photoshop on it.. and yeap.

    That price is a tough pill to swallow but... it just looks too fucking perfect not to buy.

    Definitely doesn't look as good from behind or the side in beast mode, but I honestly won't be displaying him like that anyway. Just needs to have a good show accurate dino head and articulation~

    They should've integrated 4D space to hide the kibble and charge $500 for it.

    I am extremely happy for all of you Beast Wars fans that this looks as good as it does! I'm an old Gee-Wunner and have no real connection to this line, but am happy that you guys are finally being given some Masterpiece love (as well as the Bayformer kids). Here's hoping that they keep it going and you can all build what will inevitably be very impressive Beast Wars shelves! :)

    Why do you even care about how much it costs then? Also this is way better than some Jetfire figure...

    Could have done without the "trash" comment, but agree that he is way too expensive

    Well, I was waiting to be blown away by the reveal, and I certainly was. Everything I could realistically want in a Dinobot. Wish it was cheaper, but I’m okay enough to place my order.

    This is where BBTS flat shipping makes them the obvious choice for me. Most any Japanese retailer winds up barely cheaper with international shipping, but without BBTS solid customer service.

    Why are you even reading the thread? This board has a very unique handful of basement dwellers, never seen anything like it :lol

    I agree with you on this. In many cases, by the time you factor in international shipping you might as well get it stateside. And if the figure is damaged you don't have to worry about returning it overseas,etc.

    Oh boy that's really the first and only thing that bugs me, hopefully it's not a clearance issue and it's something that can change. Otherwise I can't tell if the other face options have a more prominent jaw in profile or not.

    Got my preorder in. The figure looks amazing to me. I can deal with the side if that's how it is. I won't be displaying him him in beast mode anyway.
