    I think the paint kinda ruins him. Its TOO bright and doesnt really resemble the exact red used in the film

    So he's coming soon at ShowZ. I decided t hold off getting him until reviews are in cuz I will only get him if he's better than my alien attack KO version. And tbh, while it does look better than the AAT, one review I saw, wheels, back lights, everything was falling off.

    Ngl im torn, cuz neither figure is perfect. My BS01 keeps stabbing me and the robot mode has quite a bit of back kibble, plus hollowed out legs and again, stab points. Plus the spikes above one of the headlights will probably break. However if the UT one has poor QC im not gonna risk it.

    Paid in full at bombusbee! Despite the nonsensical scale, I'm excited to experience a new UT mold. They're usually very fun.

    So if anyone's still on the fence, I finally was able to dub my review, hopefully you'll find it useful :)

    When this was announced I was super hyped as Dino/mirage is one of my favorite bayverse designs and I thought it would be a no brained pick up, especially because of being a sign that Unique toys are back and I wanted to support them doing more bayverse stuff. But as time went on and more images and reviews came up my excitement slowly faded. It’s too big for no reason, there’s only three DLX figures from the original trilogy, with jetfire and Megatron being too small for the MPM scale and Optimus being the correct size for MPM, meaning that this Dino is too big even for a threezero collection. He basically only goes well with that super OSKO of MPM-03, and maybe Peru kill, La Hire and Metagate Drift.
    That being said, I can overlook the size, especially with poses, what’s truly getting me is that it doesn’t look that much better than the Alien Attack. The back is not very clean, the hands are baffling, the blades don’t look as polished, the wheel on the underside of the feet, the thighs look like an afterthought, even the head is less detailed than the Alien Attack one.
    Ig the transformation will be more fun but I’m not sure that it’s an upgrade over the alien attack for someone that just enjoys posing and appreciating the figures in the display.

    Sorry bro but I'm gonna have to strongly disagree on that one. Just by looks This guys Is around a 9.5, and AAT's would be a 6 IMO

    That's also not true. It's incredibly clean with just the 2 ferrari panels, that really just blend in.

    Everything else I think that's your personal preference, but I'd still strongly advise everyone to upgrade if you can. It is such a better figure in built quality, looks, articulation (minus the hands), posability, transformation, In-hand feeling, etc.

    that’s fair, as you have him in hands already, that may give a different perspective. I’m judging solely by images and the review
