Toys: Masterpiece Dinobot's size sparks fan discussion
This weekend's reveal of official Masterpiece Dinobot photos has sparked a ton of discussion online about the figure. Many fans are in agreement that the robot mode looks great, but many are also questioning why it is so big. Photos of MP Dinobot with MP Optimus Primal and Cheetus (aka Cheetor) show that Dinobot is much taller than his fellow Maximals.
The answer lies in the "Beast Wars" cartoon. This figure is modeled not on the "Beast Wars" 1996 Dinobot action figure, but rather the CGI model from the Mainframe Entertainment show. In the attached screenshots, you will see several examples of Dinobot being shown as much taller than Primal. Also keep in mind that he is actually squatting down slightly and he is still taller! Indeed, until other characters like Depth Charge and Tigerhawk rolled around, Dinobot was one of the largest Maximals on the team.
Masterpiece Dinobot is due for release in July 2018 and is currently available for order on site sponsor Bigbadtoystore.
