I would much rather not have a character in my collection than have a half-arsed, lame representation. These all meet that criteria.

I'm only interested in this if the price is much better than their previous offerings, since it's supposedly a mass-release or something. I can see them working as the Shattered Glass Dinobots.

I don't think it looks -horrible- persay... however, it definitely doesn't look attractive enough to warrant my purchase or shelf space.

The only way I might have been able to justify this purchase would have been if I wanted a neo-Energon series set of Dinobots being that they had a Grimlock / Swoop that combined though the gimmick behind that combination wasn't gestalt-type.

Regardless, I never was on board with the idea of the Dinobots combining so it's an easy pass.

These were never going to be combined on my shelf. But those arms .... yikes!

Those colors also turn this from a "I'll consider it" to a total pass. I thought they changed their minds and were goign to make these G1 colored? Maynbe this is an old picture.

I was under the impression that they are doing the initial Star Q run in these colors for the TV show, and then will retool the colors to be more G1 for a second run?

I like the Sludge and Snarl in this set because they look like pretty good g1 homages. Swoop looks good too except for the face is different and it has Frankenstein bolts on the side of its head. If they redo these 3 in g1 colors and you could buy separate I might consider it.

Otherwise I'm really hoping for all 5 FOC Dinobots being released, I really like the concept art for them.... I hope we get an announcement soon,

No further details on the availability of these figures at this moment.

Immediately after seeing that vid I had to look up the Voltron combination sequence.

I'm not sure why...

These still have a lot of potential if painted right. I have no interest in ever combining them but individually these look pretty sweet. Thinking they will cost way too much though. :-?

Those prototype pictures are actually pretty old. And now I realize that the arms on the "newer" proto pic are just turned to the side, making them appear way too thin.

Nice CG animation.

Some of the tails are already there as arm shields/gauntlets... As per that photo, you can clearly see that two of the tails don't go anywhere, yet. ;)

I might be interested in buying these. As the sculpts look nice in all modes. I love the idea of Five G-1 Dinobots forming a gestalt.

This needs a gestalt head. that current head on the gestalt looks a bit oversized & not gestalt looking enough. Also needs a gestalt chest wing. Needs a huge sword & huge double barreled gestalt gun.

TFC needs to step up to the plate & colors these toys in 1985 Dinobots toys colors. Having the current colors in those pics just don't fly well with me. Or TFC needs to release these toys in two colors,1985 dinobots colors & the colors they like for some reasons in those pics above.

Desire the team members to be deluxes. Maybe with Grimlock being Voyager scale. So the prices to complete the Gestalt will be cheaper.

Need some USA import sites to carry this. As I don't want to get this shipped from overseas. The shipping prices are too high. The time it takes to receive overseas packages are too long. I am not paying any extra clearance tax fees. Fear the package might get chrushed from the long trip from overseas to the states.

You know, I know these are "not Dinobots", but .... that's really NOT the Dinobots!

I guess I'm glad to see thy haven't abandoned their old prototype, but even so. Not for me.

It wasn't that I stopped remembering these figures, it's that I stopped caring in these.

With Planet X making the Dinobots, I'll be passing on these, even if it takes another 3 years to get a team of 5.

lol, kinda the same difference. Or indifference as the case may be. ;) And yeah, Caelus is made of win and I'll take their Dinobots as my neo-G1 Dinobots, thank you. :D 8)

I dont like any 3rd party option for the Dinobots currently out there. Theyre either too big, too small, or too weird. One day somebody will get them right.
