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 other day it was revealed that fans were beginning to find many of the (former) Walmart exclusive "Autobots Unite" figures at discount chains such as Ross. It seemed that perhaps Walmart had given up on the line. However, the "Autobots Unite" line may still have some life left in it at Walmart after all!

Today's reveal of official Masterpiece Dinobot photos has fans around the world talking. The photos show a triumph of engineering and shows how far we have come since the mid-90's in Transformers engineering. However, in an attempt to ensure fan interest in this figure, Takara Tomy has released an awesome video that shows off not only the Masterpiece Dinobot figure, but also shows the key scenes from "Beast Wars" that influenced the design of the figure! Check out the video in the embed below:

Several Transformers news sources have revealed official images of the upcoming Masterpiece Dinobot figure including Taghobby (which appears to be the original source). These are the clearest shots yet of the Predacon-turned-Maximal from "Beast Wars" and the photos help explain some of the $250 USD price point he is averaging for in most shops. The figure towers above Masterpiece Optimus Primal and Cheetor, so his size is substantial. The seeming complexity of the transformation also appears to be a factor.
