Whuh.... why are his rhino horns pink? :-o
Not sure why we need this character again, but OK.
cuz his last release was 7 years ago, and a lot of people weren't collecting back then
What about Terrosaur and Tarantulas? We haven't gotten a new, non-exclusive version of them since the originals.
Nice! Never managed to the the United EX Rhinox so I'll be happy with this new one.
Looks a little better in these newer photos.
I still find it curious why this Rhinox, much like the T30, mixes details of the cartoon, original toy and original design elements. Other Kingdom beast toys do this too, but the balance on most seems to shoot for a realistic animal mode, and a heavy lean into screen accuracy for robot mode, especially the head sculpt. Kingdom Rhinox does this a little with the wider false jaw on the chest, but the pelvis area is more inspired by the 'loincloth' of the classic BW toy. and the robot head, while it doesn't look bad, is less screen-accurate than the T30 version, and even that was an obvious re-interpretation of Rhinox's head.
On the upside, The toy mold looks like it might be a more stable, solid design overall, where the T30 toy had a lot of elements which mainly just held in place by their own friction. I think if the sculpt leaned heavier toward a cartoon resemblance around the waist, shoulders, and head, it would be easier to forgive other shortcomings in the Kingdom toy design. Regardless, I'm interested, but I think it could use some work.
Both look good. I like the stockier waist on the new one, but I don’t like seeing two rhino lower jaws in robot mode. Perhaps it can be modded to fold down out of sight/removed easily.
Even ignoring the fact we already have an Amazon listing for Terrorsaur in the Golden Disk Collection (seemingly Kingdom's equivalent of Earthrise's Galactic Odyssey Collection), do you really think Hasbro would do 11 of the 14 Season 1 Beast Wars characters in one line, and not then be pretty quick to get the remaining 3 out in the next line? Like, I know Hasbro has a habit of not finishing groups, but... 11/14 is too many for me to believe they're not gonna give us the remaining 3 soon.
It makes soo much sense to do them all, but they didn't even do all of the Headmasters in their Headmasters line, so I wouldn't put it past them.
That would be true. Just fingers crossed they finished the entire first season cast. I am good with it. I have a feeling we gonna have to wait for 3P to come out with releases just in case.
I think it's clear there is still a gap between T30 Rhinox and the animation model.
I don't think that Kingdom Rhinox is evenly filling that gap.
Without a doubt the Kingdom is an amalgamation of the Generations, instead of making a fake chest I would have left it hollow so that the real jaw would cover that part, but in the meantime said hollow would have served to make the "Gatling Blasters of Doom" with more volume instead of being flat.
As well as the original figure and the Generations.
If they see well the weapons each time they go lower with each incarnated figure.
Normally the false chest jaw thing would bother me.... But I\'ll just be happy to own a Rhinox
The original toy looks so precious....
His horns are pink now???
I\'d like to see some reviewer compare him with Generations Rhinox. I still feel he is the better toy.
Glad that the weapon could still store in the beast mode just like the idw version
Almost perfect. If only they did not give him green shoulders in his rhino mode.I would have preferred these to have been grey.
its a takara Twitter picture. When are you guys going to learn their pictures of figures yet to be released arnt to be taken as the final version yet
It looks to like there have been some major improvements from Generations Rhinox but only thing that still bugs me is the back shoulders look horrible; he looks like he needs to leave the room always backwards.
just don’t put your figures with their backs facing toward you on shelf. Folks really need to stop doing that it’s very concerning that so many people have their figures displayed that way
