It's a pretty good looking toy in all three modes with some interesting features: the shuttle mode has a communications satellite; the robot mode's chest fin seems to be able to store in a groove in the torso to better match the animation model; and the train now has a coal car in case a robot space shuttle train with no fuel was too much disbelief to suspend at once.

From Weibo by way of Autobase Aichi, we have our first look at the Platinum Edition Dinobots boxset! ...which, as it turns out, is not

get Voyager-class Slog, who was previously a separate Amazon exclusive! Keep reading to see the packaged figures.
