    Ok the part of this that almost sold me instantly is how the upper thigh wheel works, having an appropriate fake part but also having the real part close enough to it you could imagine it working in real life is *chef's kiss*

    On the flip side, it's now more understandable why the chest headlights are fake, but I wish the actual ones could flip over and be used somehow, or at least were more hidden

    100% Second that, that was ridiculous. I get I'm the weirdo who wants 1/32 but still...

    Hoping for AOE Bee or Crosshairs, I'd like to finish my main autobot squad

    I'm still not completely excited about this Dino. The leg stars could be a separate accessory and not cast into the car chassis, it would look better. The plastic is very thick, unlike that of AAT and Bmb which made from thinner plastic. I hope the next one isn't Sentinel, I hope it's Bee AOE. IMG_20231215_064616.jpg

    The “leg stars” would look a lot better to me if the side edge of the panel was painted silver to match. I’m ok with them not being separate pieces, but the current paint job makes them look two-dimensional.

    My only remaining concern is that I assumed it would have an ab crunch, but there’s no evidence of that in the photos/video. It’s not critical since the hips can swing so far upward, but since Haiku and Red Fantasy I hoped that was the new standard.

    Lets face it everyone this is the best version of dino we will get. I personally would like sideswipe if unique toys would do him too.

    If it was actually properly MPM sized, absolutely.

    Can't wait for their Sentinel to be taller than the Bmb KO :rolleyes: .
    What, another Optimus? that can't be, it has to be another movie character I will still complain about because it won't be my favorite choice!!1!!!1!

    Jokes aside, i'm fine whatever their next figure will be, it can be either Sentinel, another Megatron, or a carbot, i just hope they don't continue on the god awful boring trend of making their figures scale with the threezero toys.

    My only real qualm with this design is the blades having nowhere to go in vehicle mode. A weapon so integral to the bot design should at least clip to the undercarriage or something if not worked directly into the transformation

    I also hate it. Metagate Shatter is a real achievement, but her size is making her a bit unwieldy to me and not as fun as if she were smaller.
    This would be a really good feature to have, but are we certain that there isn't vehicle storage?

    Shatter is the exception to me because of the complex engineering.

    Also it's funny that only BBM characters seems like de facto made in DLX scale all because Threezero figure Optimus Prime released first and it all snowballed from there. (Yeah there's mpm-07 Bumblebee released first but the figure sucks ass so it doesn't count).

    Yeah I know WHY she's so big, I'm just saying it makes it less fun for me.

    You’re telling me size does matter? And that bigger is more uncomfortable?

    Yeah, but we all know it’s not REALLY the size that matters, it’s how much, uh, articulation it has.

    2021. I already knew about the OSKO.
    Iirc Transcraft wants to make mpm series for BBM characters but got cancelled because the reception of their Bumblebee figure.

    Official word? No. But from everything I've seen of the design and the transformation video I'm not hopeful

    Interesting. Wonder what could have been. I think fixing the qc shouldnt have veen an issue. The mold itself was well recieved. I guess its too late now, dlx is king bbm scale
