These are some of the best recolors I've ever seen. Its like their cybertronian forms, cause in the guide it said that Optimus Primals cybertronian form was like a monster truck or somethin.
Ransack recolored into Rattrap=pure genius.

I think Hasbro fitted the colours with the best mould they could. Although I thought Clocker could have been Rattrap. Why is the Maximal symbol red? I saw that on the Japanese Beast Wars toys and on 10th anniversary toys. It looks better than green anyway.

You know, I never noticed it before, but Armada Hoist's head is an absolute dead-ringer for Dinobot. They picked that one well.

Note how he has Hoist's head and Longrack's arm. Basically, he's an amalgamation of two different versions of the mold.

Yeah, I noticed it was the original head used with body of the Cybertron remold.

So, Dinobot's an amalgamation and Primal is a remold all his own. Are there any differences with Rattrap besides the planet key? I don't own a Ransack and can't easily tell.

i don't agree with the mold for dinobot at all. i never did like the concept of for crane tpye transformers to have the crane lift as an arm. did like with longarm now i'm hating the fact they gave to dinobot.
the colors work great. but overall they could of chose a better mold. in my opinon a disgrace for beast wars greatest hero dinobot.

I'm a little torn. I don't see him as a builder, but he looks good. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a disgrace, per se. I'd think it more fitting for rhinox and perhaps try to stick the Hoist head on another figure. I could almost see him as another bike, just because of the whole Chopperface nickname, and motorbikes have that warrior's feel. Not sure who they'd use, though. All in all, I still like it as a figure.

don't get me wrong. i just feel they did a poor choice when came to dinobot. i agree he'll look better as a bike maybe even a hellicoper he could use the blades as as his spinning weapon like he used his tail for.

You know, Bulkhead would've been perfect with a slight remold of the head.

Yes, bad choice of a mold for Dinobot, but they did have to choose Cybertron figures, and had little choice...

Not to fond of the choice of mold for Dinobot. Love the colours and the head (looks very much like his), but just can't picture him as a labourer. I kno they probably had limited choices, but still.

The concept of this Dinobot is a given. I think it may have been better if they'd cloned the left arm and made a right one out of it. Perhaps attach a large dozer shovel across his front. (detacheable as a shield or some crap)

On second thought, that would make me wonder why he lost the ability to fly.

All in all, the mold has the look, but not the character. Still, like I said, a good figure. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to reconcile it in the comic. Perhaps his honor comes from work experience, where he witnessed graft in a maximal construction site, leading him to forsake his work and to become a predacon. Perhaps, he witnessed the creation of Protoform X . . .
