Yay Hound, been waiting for him for awhile now. Is that another MP Optimus as well? Why, what more can be done with him.

MP Optimus V3: Now even more Cartoon accurate.

Personally not bothered, no one is forcing us to buy V3 if you're happy with V2, but extra articulation is always nice. Convoy is such a big seller in Japan it was always inevitable.

There's also a MP Wheeljack Anime on show.

Hound looks... odd, almost 3rd party. Need to see alt mode.

good to see we are getting Hound, but I wish it was more of a homage to the toy, but I'll take it.

Not sold on V3 Prime as yet, I will have to see the finished product before I decide.

I love the animated look. It’s what I always wanted as a kid. I still think the prowl mold is probably my favorite MP and I’m tempted to get the anime colours version of him. I’m also thinking of trading out sideswipe for badcube.

Stunticons are my favorite combiner team.

Very excited for Hound, Prime and the toon coloured Wheeljack.

Hounds head looks like it will have the visor gimmick from MTMTE when he fights rumble under water (Guessing from the joints in the head, looks like it swings upwards and something swings outwards to cover his face).

I do hope V3 Prime comes with a Sparkplug figure. V2 had spike, seems only fair.

there are reports of Mp Dinobot having two issues, issue one ratchet joints being to tight fix is aparnatly just being gental with him but some people are trying to find a better fix, issue number two same issue cheetor had everything that gets kinda stuffed inside the chest gut area doesnt allow for part to fit togther as neatly as one would like, some smart person thought it was a great idea to try force it breaking the parts inside dinobot, from the front this issue is a non issue if you have to have abit of open back pack to keep your toy from breaking its a good idea lol

I received my MP Dinobot yesterday and I've transformed him a few times back and forth and I haven't had any issues with the ratchets but I can definitely see less-patient collectors cramming it all in and breaking parts.
oh and Dr Alan Grant is right those velociraptor claws are sharp I mean needle point sharp. ouch.
