    So, the legs and belly section come down and wrap around the dino parts! That's brilliant! The robot chest, head and back are all connected together!!!

    Colored to better illustrate the transformation:

    So does anyone know where I can buy this figure with my debit? I know there's ebay but I just don't trust it.

    Amazon Japan is excellent, they accept debit.

    It's just me or these images makes him look even more impressive than the colored prototype ones?
    I hope we will get the remaining scans as well, some parts are cut out. I want to see EVERYTHING about this guy.

    Nice details on the transformation and gimmicks. I love how expressive the robot faces are, the jaw being able to move is a fantastic addition. Good to see there is an option to store the tail in robot mode, I suspected their might be. I doubt I'll use it, much like I don't use that feature on Cheetor. It just looks a bit silly but it's nice to have.

    Looking forward to reading some translations of that article sometime soon.

    Honestly I'm not sure. They can be spotty with what they offer here in the States too. It's pretty simple to set up an account with them though. There is a small button on the bottom of their page with the world symbol which translates everything to English.

    Seeing the rotating eyes in beast mode is quite cool. I doubt I'll use the weapon storage but it's nice to have. The articulated robot jaw is great, I didn't even realize he had that feature.

    Transformation looks fascinating but I just hope it handles better than Cheetor did. That figure was anything but fun to handle. I wish for Dinobot to do things better, maybe his sheer size can help a bit with that.

    Oh, my bad. Hobby Link Japan is also a good site that accepts debit.

    I love this picture. It's a great size comparison, but also proves just how necessary MP Rhinox and Rattrap are, especially Rhinox! Man, an MP Rhinox would be gloriously huge!

    Don't know whats wrong with Rattrap though...

    I know its because he doesn't look like his cartoon model, Its just the height for Rattrap looks fine to me.
