    I’d love rattrap next due to dinobot coming that’s all and if they do announce rattrap then i hope rhinox will follow them all 5 maximals will be out of the way, plus we now know that megatron will happen some time that’s a great indicator of the inevitable preds coming in MP form :D  I can’t wait this line is something else and I honestly never thought we’d ever see our favorite characters get this type of treatment EVER but here we are :D

    But we do not know if megatron is coming. The designer just said he'd like to tackle a beast wars megatron mp. That is not confirmation, it's just something he'd like to design in the future.

    Question btw: Anyone know what's up with Dinobot's upper teeth? In some images they appear hidden, while in others they are quite clearly protruding like the lower row of teeth. Are they swappable? Movable like the tongue? Just a trick of perspective (though I could SWEAR in some images, perspective be damned, they are higher up inside his mouth than his upper lip)? Or...?

    Compare these (all recent, all official) images:

    Dinobot Teeth.jpg

    The lower two images, even though the lower left one is at an angle looking up into his mouth, appear to show the teeth receded, while the upper two show them clearly pronounced and protruding beyond the upper lip. What gives?

    Megatron will come I know he will, if they can do a dinobot they can simply do a megatron, believe in takara they can do this :D

    So far we've only speculated that the upper teeth module can move up and down, perhaps to mimic lip movements like a snarl?

    That would be awesome. I do think I can see a little gap inside his upper jaw that, if they CAN be moved, could be tugged on to pull them down.

    I never said they can't. I'm just correcting you. They did not confirm that they'd be doing megatron. I'm not saying they won't. Just saying there's no confirmation.

    I personally want a predacon next. You want the maximals to come first. Let's just "agree to disagree" even though there is no disagreement to begin with.

    Forgive me and my lack of sleep.

    Glorious. And yeah... now that I can see it even better... IMHO... those upper teeth are DEFINITELY hidden up inside his upper jaw above the lip in the pic of him in beast mode at the bottom! So tentatively I think the teeth HAVE to be moveable or swappable. (I'm speculatively going with moveable, since they haven't shown a set of teeth with his accessories. Plus, it would fit with the theme of self-containment that his eyes display!)

    Someone else guessed a good reason for it being there but I can't remember what they wrote unfortunately, MP Grimlock has a similar eye change gimmick to Dinobot's and Grimlock also has that button which can clamp his jaws shut, so maybe there is more than just the eye trick to Dinobots beast head.

    I'm on episode 9 guys, Dinobot is getting more and more tempting as the series progresses (first time watching). Favourite character so far might be Rattrap, he's got so much attitude :lol 
    Might end up waiting for him to be my entryway BW MP.

    Dinobot's looking mighty fine though. One of the most impressive MPs so far - that opening mouth gimmick is genius.

    I actually think it's to allow his jaw to close completely. Otherwise, there wouldn't be any space to fit the bottom teeth.

    No man, you have to wait till Season 2!

    Hah, I'm looking forward to it! Taking my time, definitely enjoying the humour and feel of the show a lot. Weirdly I don't think I would've appreciated it so much as a kid, but now I really dig it.

    Scale-wise Dinobot is looking perfect in bot mode, a little big in dino mode but that's to be expected.

    It's pretty fun watching the show having seen the awesome MP - imagine having figures this good when the show was actually on the air! The MP line truly is a great thing.

    Dinormous!
    I've been worrying about this for awhile but I'm sure the others are right and TT are just showing what they have so far. I mean it's the first time anyone's been able to assemble anything remotely resembling the original Axalon crew.

    Anyone else notice how the coloured proto has quite a few paint scuffs? They've been present since we got our first glimps of him fully painted but now seem especially prominent on the bronze upper thigh bands. I guess anyone expecting Dinobot's paint to be less fragile can abandon that hope.

    The paint will be fragile either way.

    However, i don't expect someone to use actual acid to test the figure and then say "oh SOOO BAD QC"

    It's still the hand-painted sample in all likelihood.

    There's still danger of the paint scuffing, mind you, with these Beast Wars MPs being like, 90% painted on the surface, but it shouldn't be so delicate that you can damage it with your fingernails or something. Watch out for plastic-on-plastic rub points during transformation.
