The 2nd deluxe figure in the box-set is none other than Rhinox. Just to point out i actually drive a front-end loader which this mold is used for, although I've yet to see one anywhere near this one. The most realistic one I've seen is the one in the energon constructicon set. But anyways onward.
It's a front-end loader like i said and i like the look of it. It is tan with green, black, and gold accents to it. The tires are black and on the front are green tire covers. Hie exhaust pipes are gray. The scoop has the same wear and tear silver detailing as dinobot and i just love it. The scoop can go up to 95 degrees angled, maybe a lil more, which adds to the playability. The headlights and autobot symbol are gold. There are 2 maximal symbols which are on his tire guard covers. I don't much care for his gun which just sorta plugs into the top of the loader and sticks a long way outta the back. Not too bad of a mode and has a Rhinox feel to it. The golden disk cyber key activates blades that come outta the back tires, though it seems it was meant for his next mode.
Rhinox retains the same colors but now more green is visible. The golden autobot symbol is stamped on his chest now, the story goes its a sign of respect for what happened in the past with the great war and he doesn't want it to be forgotten. His maximal symbols are now shown on the kibble next to his feet. The head wasn't remolded but with the green face, red eyes, and golden/and green helmet it looks like rhinox. There is kibble on him,much like the beast wars version, but unlike that version this stuff is outta the way. The scoop is in half, with one on each forearm. The front tires are on each leg and outta the way as well. On his back is the rear tires and his cyber key feature. It unlocks the blades which are a nod to his chain-guns of doom. They have a pretty wide range of movement due to a couple of hinge joints, all thanks to the transformation. His gun just shoots a missile, but hes the only one in the set that has a place to store his weapon on him in robot mode.
This is a great figure with almost no flaw other than the realisticness (prolly not a real word lol) of the loader. He has kibble but it doesn't get in the way and it gives him his huge look it needs. The blades are a nice touch to the figure and he's just awesome. His green reflects in the black light as well. A great figure and the color differnce with landmine is why i like him better than landmine.
