Somebody should take those designers out to the zoo because holy crap that looks like somebody on their hands in a bad halloween costume.
Like, jeez, now I feel bad for making fun of Gaogaigar's lion.

I mean, Blackarachnia already made it clear that they do not give hug one about the beast mode if it interferes with the robot, so this is consistent.
It'd be super cool if this was an indication that they might do other JBW characters in the future, but you and I both know it means they might do Big Convoy one day and absolutely nothing else. As it stands, I don't care about either of those guys. Show me a Galvatron, though, and I will have some money for you.

Still has the entire lion foreleg hanging off the forearms, but now those forelegs aren't a single piece of hollow plastic. That will be awkward.

Gotta love that typical Asian toy photographer head-down-crotch-out pose!
I like it, but I already have the original. And since it actually looks like it follows the original transformation (other than the magic lion head), I have no need for this. I predict that this might not do so well. It's an MP figure of a character that not many people outside Japan have any connection to.

It depends if you think "people outside of Japan" are a meaningful proportion of Takara's audience.
-ZacWilliam, I mean I don't know but I figure it's at least possible they don't much care at all about what folks outside Japan want.

Glad as I am that he has the cartoon lion face, I really would rather they just stuck with that one in both modes.
Cheetor crammed the cheetah face behind a cheetah face in the pursuit of accuracy, so I would struggle to be surprised in this case.
A lion head turning itself inside out so it looks like a lion head sure is something.

Also hype . . . if it isn't $600 with INSTANT FRACTURE ACTION PLASTIC and Free-spinning Waist Articulation
