Tomopop Review: Sentinel's Metamor Force Dino Getter 1 photo
Tomopop Review: Sentinel's Metamor Force Dino Getter 1
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

There have been a lot of Getter Robos, but never one quite like this. What was originally a group of three aircraft that could be reconfigured into three different robot modes (Getter 1, 2, and 3) has now been reimagined as a trio of robots capable of transforming into dinosaurs. Winged Dino Getter 1 transforms into a pterodactyl, four-armed Dino Getter 2 changes into a T-rex, and Dino Getter 3 turns into a two-headed sea monster that kinda resembles a plesiosaur type thing. Sounds like a certain Transformers dinosaur team doesn't it?

Sentinel makes great figures, but are they out of their league making high-end transforming robot figures like Takara Tomy and Bandai? Follow me after the jump as we take a close look at Dino Getter 1!
