    It feels like TT has been keeping quiet more than usual regarding new MP releases? I haven't heard much of anything at all about MP Dinobot or of any releases or planned MP's after Dinobot. I would not want TT or any company to rush out new products willy-nilly, but at the same time, it feels like we haven't had a crumb of new ANYTHING in quite a while.

    So I've been doing a bit of thinking, and I don't think Dinobot will be quite the enganeering nightmare that we're all expecting. While I'm sure there's going to be a fair amount of mp cheetor style kibble, I feel like a lot of people forget that DB has a relatively braud body in raptor mode.

    I don't think the problem will be finding space inside the beast mode to store robot parts as much as getting all that raptor flesh (and arms) stuffed away when he's transformed.
    That's why I think he'll need lots of double sided panels and whatnot as there really can't be too many beast parts which are just expected to pack away inside his chest when the raptor head will likely already take up a fair amount of that space.

    That'd be pretty underwhelming if the majority of the transformation was just turning him inside out.

    Could someone photoshop that? I'd love to see what mp grimlock looks like in bw dinobot's colors looks like. Or mp grimlock in bw grimlock's colors.

    Yup, Dinobot does have a fairly broad body. Broader than his head. Hmmm ;)  I hope they include the golden disc(s)as an accessory as well.

    That pic makes him look like he wants to play frisbee. :lol

    I'd honestly be disappointed if he didn't come with one. Though I'd prefer only one, and have the other one come with Megatron.

    He's like barny only if you took out literally everything bad about him and replaced it with amazing-nes and robot parts.

    Yup. BW Megatron was what drew me into watching the series. It's also one of my favorite designs from BW.

    Only this "Barney" will blow you to bits if you look at him the wrong way. If they make this one after Dinobot, I'll be a happy camper even though it isn't a G1 MP car. *sigh* I guess that means I have to get MP Cheetor now...

    Do you think Dinobot will be the only MP reveal at next month's Tokyo Toy Show?

    I would be very said if it was. I am looking forward to DInobot, but would also want to see at least 1 or 2 more reveals besides him to be released in 2017. And reissues don't count.

    To be honest, no, but maybe the only good thing.
    If TT surprises us with other new figures, i'll be happy

    Probably not. Tt seems to have set a bit of a trend where they announce one bw mp, along side one g1 mp. Though getting more than one bw mp at once would be amazing.

    Here's something thats been bugging me for the longest time. With all these bw mp's, and with primal being the next prime, and with Beast Wars being renewed and revived within the TF community in general, could someone, for the love of primus, PLEASE release an official Beast Wars sound track!

    This might be a silly question, but what does the text on the image with the silhouette actually say?

    I found this: "scoop/a piece of news published by a newspaper or broadcast by a television or radio station in advance of its rivals."
    If you mean the red part, i don't know.
