I'd be happy with Classics (or yes, at a pinch FOC) versions of them all. Mostly Voyager, but I think Snarl and Swoop could probably be Deluxes.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

The MP Grimlock that's out now wouldn't match the rest of the Dinobots if they come out, as he'd be shorter than them. Grimmy's mold would need to be enlarged and rereleased, or he'd have to be redone.

Though the G1 show's size reference is sort of so so, I once posted a pic of Grimlock (sort of) apologizes to Optimus. It more than suffices for me to recreate that scene.

Now, if Tomy starts going via scale, then Sludge would cost like twice owing to an apatosaur/brontosaur outsizing a T-rex........that would surely hurt our already bleeding pockets :lol:

Maybe, if in our wildest dreams the other Dinos are made, Grimlock's size would be the standard..............sigh.........only in our dreams.......

Or they could make the rest of the gang in scale with the current MP Grimlock 8)

They said they're making every MP after -10 in scale(in bot mode) with -10. Unless they wanna break their own rule, they won't do that. Besides, then they wouldn't be in scale to anyone else...

The Dinobots are a law unto themselves. Where Grimlock goes, scale need not follow!

Oh yeah! But I wish Tomy will also consider releasing either an MP of regular Encore G1 version of the sluggers. :PRAY:

Maybe if they do make a bigger MP Grimlock, they can follow up with a Pretender shell for the current MP Grimlock, justifying his existence for those who currently own him as "Pretender Grimlock". Of course, that would never happen, but I like the idea nonetheless.

Until they show that they are willing to sell secondary/fringe characters as MP....I doubt they would do the rest of them MP scale.

Grimlock is a popular character who would sell. You can't say that for the rest of them.

I agree with others on here that the likelyhood that all 5 G1 Dinobots get released as Masterpieces is unlikely for years, if at all.

If it does happen to become reality,I would be all about getting all of them. The Dinobots were some of my favorite characters. Plus my MP-08 Grimlock misses his crew.

Not to change topic, but the FOC dinobot art is totally amazing...

I'm sure it would inspire the designers to come up with some really great toys. Hopefully the FOC game can drum up a wide range of fan support for a release of all of them as voyagers or deluxes....

I think this is our best bet...at least in the not too distant future. Considering that FOC Grimlock is not being released until next spring, we can only hope that the other may follow. Who knows what class they would be developed in. It would be great if all of them were voyagers. I'd even be extremely happy if Swoop were a deluxe, but based on some of the comments about them being "retired" I'm not going to get my hopes up too much.

However, I would absolutely go crazy if they released all 5 in the FOC line, as masterpieces or any other new age line! I would sell a kidney and pay any amount! Are you listening Hasbro?!! :grin:

Thanks for showing me this! That just made my day! The FOC dinobots designs are too sweet to pass up and if they were all voyagers...crazy awesome goodness! :DANCE:

So to bring this full circle...I think that If they made all the FOC dinobots, and if they sold REALLY WELL, I think that would make Hasbro a little more willing to try making the rest of them as Masterpiece. IDK, just a guess....
