    For 250, the stand better transforms into another BW figure.

    I preordered at amazon... The price hasn't been discounted yet, but from my experience, it always ends up cheaper and you get super fast shipping.

    The price is high, but he looks sooo worth it.. my fear is the inevitable BW Grimlock retool being a TTMall exclusive and not having any kind of discount...

    Yep. That right there is everything I’ve ever wanted from a Dinobot figure. The other faces aren’t really doing it for me but that one is 100% Dinobot. It only takes one to give me the perfect Dinobot figure and there it is.

    Edit: This view actually shows a cut-out in his neck for the chins of the open-mouthed faces to slot into. So that’s why they’re not so visible. Maybe I was also forgetting that when you open you mouth your chin angles downwards... but Dinobot does more of a Viggo Mortensen where his whole jaw extends forwards when he screams.
    I’m definitely too fixated on the chin at this point!

    That’s a big ol’ backpack he’s carting around but his parts have gotta go somewhere. As I’m buying at least two I’ll see if removing the raptor arms can free up enough space to have it all a bit more streamlined. Can also give swapping the raptor legs a go on the one I’ll display in beast mode so the stripes are on the correct side.

    Or, you know, you can just not buy him if you think 250 is too expensive to pay for what is probably the best Masterpiece figure ever made.

    For 22k yen youd think they would at least put voice clips in there... I could practically hear Scott Mcneil's growl coming from the face sculpt!

    He kinda reminds me of that TMNT toy called road ready splinter. It transformed from the turtle van and was pretty awesome but ultimately just one of those ones that turns itself inside out, hence the boxiness we also see here. Can't wait to get him

    Don't worry, I definitely won't buy it. And you must be a hater of the MP line for saying all MP figures from now on will simply be worse.
