I'll pick him up and hope that they also produce a new Rattrap (really. It would be a crime not to release Dinobot's foil). Then I can display ol' Chopperface and the vermin together. ;)
I'll hope fore a new Rattrap as well, (with his famous tail of course). Since mine has so much wear due to me playing with him (battling Armada Rhinox for a reason I don't know yet) I need a new one. Dinobot looks much better than Cheetor with al that kibble on the back.

I'd love to see him as well, as the original Rattrap was my first TF. Good times.

In my opinion, it's really not much of an improvement over the original. There's still kibble on his chest in dino mode, it's just different kibble.

Really not digging the Beast Wars Universe figures. :(

My first one was BM Deluxe Jetstorm... I was five back then so that's the reason. (His transformation periode the first time was a month because I lost the instructions...)

Ahem.

I like the dinobot- I haven't bought any Beast Wars figures since it was on the telly when I was knee high to a grasshopper. Not through choice, I just haven't happened to pick any up. I'll keep an eye out for this, though. Speaking of eyes, the raptor mode has pretty bulging eyeballs.

I wouldn't go so far as to say pretty, but mildly seductive, yes.

It's a dinobot tradition that goes all the way back to G1. ;)

Seeing as it has a faction switching feature, that's really quite clever!

Indeed. This guy really looks like he will be quite good. While I dig the gold, the purple doesn't look half bad, and the brown and orange looks spiffy, I have to wonder why they didn't favor a more show-accurate paint app. They made a good stab for his 10th anniversary after all. :confused:

A mystery perhaps, but it won't stop me from braving the crazed post holiday hordes to hunt him down.

Edit: Crap. I thought he was coming out the same time as Cyclonus.

Show accurate color schemes are for Henkei to come out with!;)

I personally would have liked Dinobot to be an Autobot as he was in the Maximals for a bit but I guess he'll always be a con at heart.

Technically he's a Predacon. His packaging (sans logo) states that.

I don't think I could possibly be any more sold on Dinobot! I think Henkei might chrome the missile (since it's molded and can be held like the original's sword), the inside of the tail, and maybe the robot mode "ribs". Just a guess, though.

Damn it all... I really must have Dinobot. There hasn't been anything that grabbed my interest really in several months, but Dinobot and Cheetor are doing so. This Dinobot is surely the best looking one we've seen yet, despite all the minor gripes everyone has made, it looks amazing to me.

I know Cheetor has already been spotted, and I've begun the rounds looking for him, but is there any idea when this Dinobot wave is set to release? I'm guessing Nevermore will say "soonish?"...but who knows..he may know more! :lol:
