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

Additional images of TFC Toys upcoming Dino-Combiner have popped up on Action Figure Checklist. In this set of images we finally get to see all of the figures in their robot modes. Good enough to become your Classics universe Dinobots? Check out the images mirrored below.

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.

Swoop and Slag look good, Grimlock is mediocre, and as for Snarl and Sludge, scrap no! Neither of them are toy/cartoon-accurate enough for me. I get that they need to diverge a little so they don't have Hasbro on their afts, but I don'y like em'.

Looks good to me, just have to wait for a price though.
I'm also looking for G1 Scattershot - complete with all parts for computron (i've got all the other techno bots, just not got their leader! If you have him and are looking to sell or swap for something please let me know - cheers

Not bad, but really awe-inspiring. Sacrifices to combine or not, unless Hasbro goes all out with FOC, this is probably going to be the closest to a decent dinobot team we're going to see in a while.

I don't mind the removable tales as a design choice all that much. It's clear they already mount on the combiner, so I'm hoping they either mount somewhere on the individual bots or can be wielded as shields. Another point of concern is the combiner feet apparently only having a peg to secure them.

My only real gripe is they stuck to the 5 bot style. Giving "the leader" body duty makes him suffer the most in scale and design. After the excellence (and hugeness) of Hercules, I would have preferred a 6th extra thing able to store the feet and become the waist so this guy could really measure up to Herc.

Speaking of which, this IS TFC, so why aren't there comparisons to Hercules?

I don't think I am going to be buying these guys. I don't think they look all that great so far and they are going to be silly-expensive.

Although, I think if they hook up a nice paint scheme my opinion might change.

IDK, like the TFClub Devy, I'm just not feeling this. Maybe it's because having them as a combiner instead of individual bots forces their bot modes to be generic. I think the concept is nice, but I think I'd rather go for solo Dino's. Still, there is a market for this, but its just not for me.
