Hmm, interesting. These might be my Classics Dinobots.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Even if you personally don't like the idea of dinobots combining, it's obvious that most people do. Do a search on ebay for "dinobot combiner" and see how many crappy customs there are and what people are willing to pay for them. It's about time a third party made one that was actually GOOD.

And yes, Hasbro is moronic for not doing this themselves. They made Grimlock into other gimmicky stuff like Pretenders, etc., but never made the dinobots into the original gimmick -- a combiner? Utterly stupid.

I could live with them being not molded exactly to resemble G1, provided they have G1 colors. However, the scale really screws them up. Not only are they out of scale in the TF kingdom, but they are out of scale in the dinosaur kingdom as well. I mean, look at sludge. Why is he the smallest instead of the largest ???? Sludge should have been the torso. And dont give me the lame excuse about "the torso always has to be the leader". Scrapper was a freakin leg on Devastator. I have no intrest in the combiner feature anyways and since the robot modes are not going to be G1, they would get displayed in dino mode. But the scale sucks.

Gotta see more of the Defensor team before I comment.

Look @ that custom dinobot custom everyone would want that. Next to a city TF the dino's r suppose to be the badest bots out their. I'm happy somebody went above & beyond to give us want 90% of TF fans always wanted to see hasbro do. It looks great so far can't what to see the finished product!

I for one don't want the Dinobots to ever combine again. Seriously, cut this sh!t out. Saying they should combine is like saying the Wreckers should combine or the Sweeps or the Headmasters. It's all just unnecessary. Most fans actually don't want a dinosaur combiner. Or at least not that one.

The original gimmick was transforming and only the Actionmasters didn't do that which is a gimmick in itself "yo dawg" style.

@ Zod you cut it out homie you make up that 10% that don't wanna see that & majority rules. If didn't nobody wanna that we would be having this discussion or this toy being made. Like i said that custom Dino combiner Extinction was amazing! If this company is smart enough to make them I think they aren't finished makin them into the way we always pictured. The wreckers, hm, & sweeps noone wanted to see them combine but they do & have wanted to see the Dino's that's a fact.

The combined mode is pretty sweet no doubt but i'm not interested. I don't need or want combining Dinobots. Excellent figure though.

I'm not a fan of the Dino combining, so if these look good in robot mode, I'll buy them and just not combine them ;)

Once to see what it's like perhaps, but IMO (and only IMO) the Dinobots are seperate characters, not combiners.

Now if these were coloured to be reminiscent of Dinoking then things may be different.

They don't look as good as the FOC designs IMO. So if Hasbro does sit on those figures we hoped for the first time again while throwing out more BumbbleBees and Primes. Well.....

It doesn't hurt that I didn't even see Victory until the Madman Headmasters/Victory/Masterforce release in '09. In fact, aside from having a couple of them as a kid, I only know the Pretender Monsters from Marvel's Rhythms of Darkness! when I was 10. Jim Lee did the cover and it was the first issue I got when I really started collecting comics and was blown away by it! Still, they never even combined in the issue!

sad thing is that on the dvds the dinoforce/dinoking were a bunch of bungling morons - really cant see these figs being repainted to represent that facet of the tf universe

So the tails have to be removed and set aside? That's disappointing, and makes these figures less attractive.

They are Waaaaay to small......They need to be upsized to at least the size the Hercules toys are at. I mean wtf?? Making merge groups so small is just dumb. It looks cool, but if there scout sized with a deluxe Grimlock, whats the point??? It wont sell very well.
