    I thnk that dino is a disgrace of a toy. Fair enough if they couldn't get the license for the ferrari italia but instead of creating a toy that resembled the ferrari italia they reused the audi r8. I'm sorry for ranting it just annoys me.

    Soundwave is a definite since I love the look of the mold but I really don't like the mirage in the sideways mold but that might be just because I only think the sideways mold is semi decent.

    I really hope these come stateside. I'd easily pick up that Soundblaster, since we didn't get the original and I couldn't pay triple price for one. Please get on that, Hasbro!

    Ugh. That Mirage just makes me pissed he didn't get his own mold.

    They're not going to make a new mold for Mirage :rolleyes2 
    Besides, we're lucky we even GOT a Mirage figure.

    I'm glad that Soundblaster was uncancelled, he looks like a thing of beauty.

    Dino/Mirage looks good too despite my dislikement towards the Sideways mold.

    Dino/Mirage is looking good. Definitely picking him up. Soundblaster... looks alright in black but I'm just not a fan of the DOTM Deluxe Soundwave mold (having owned him; he stays in alt mode), to be honest. Really hope that mystery Voyager Decepticon figure in the Advanced movie line turns out to be Human Alliance Soundwave (with silver paint this time; now this mold of SW I really like).

    Too bad they couldn't make him into a Ferrari 458 Italia like he is in the movie. I think he would look better if he transformed from a Ferrai to a robot but oh well you work with what you can I guess when you are Hasbro/Takara.

    Dino/Mirage is locked under Deluxe class. From a rough estimate, I picked up my Takara Crosshairs off Ebay for $40, so that may be the pricepoint. I'm not sure though.

    Can someone confirm for me? Thanks!

    After looking at some screen caps of Dino, online, I am quite happy with this figure. The vehicle mode is exactly what I was hoping for, but the robot mode is as close as you're going to get and it looks damn close.

    This is precisely why I preordered him.

    I realize it was once a Decepticon mold, and I happen to like the Sideways mold, but he was on screen for maybe a minute and died just as fast, and he got a toy. Dino was seen throughout DOTM and received nothing but a Hot Wheels knockoff. This is what he truly deserves. The head is remolded to look like him, he has the arm blades, the whole look.

    Hell yes.
