    Less of a 3rd mode and more some additional faffing about to switch between all fours and standing poses while in beast mode.

    Might just be a limitation of the mold.

    It's still certainly fine all around. I just probably won't be using the standing gorilla mode.

    The gorilla knees are just the robot knees bent with the rotated waist. So you can easily just unbend the knees and put his arms down.

    Yeah same here, I feel the all-fours pose better differentiates the beast-mode from the Bot mode.

    And while Masterpiece Primal can also go on all fours, they have such a different vibe and look when on all fours that it really makes this toy feel different.

    Searched "gorilla standing upright" and was fairly surprised to see they actually animated a somewhat realistic walk cycle for a gorilla (in a 1997 tv series of course). Pretty impressive.

    Sure, a real gorilla stands more naturally in so many ways but even a toy of a boxy-box vehicle suffers in the "realism" department when it's designed to transform into a robot, so an animal alt mode is obviously going to get it worse. I was actually typing this up to argue that the show / toys weren't doing a very good job but my search changed my mind completely...nice.

    (p.s. I ain't talking about the original Primal toy. That figure's alt mode was a terrible representation of a gorilla.)

    I mean, his legs are definitely longer in gorilla mode than the cartoon model. But I think the real thing making it look bad to me are the fact that his shins are obviously shaped like calves. It makes them unnaturally thick looking.

    I totally get why it's not perfect. It just looks odd to me, so I prefer the crouching stance.

    That is a great point.

    Do we have any info other than these leaked shots for a product count?

    Wasnt Scorponok said to be a Voyager? Is he a deluxe? I'd expect maybe Wasp and Tracks to even the ranks out

    If this is the case, Transmutate may be an interesting thing to behold.
