With those colors, Grimlock sorta reminds me of Dino Tyranno from Dinozaurs.

Anyways, like most third party Dinobots I wouldn't really buy them unless they retool them into the Geisters from Exkaiser, mainly that Snarl, as he'd make a really cool Armor Geist.

Looking for:
Actionmaster Prime's Armored Convoy, just the cab and trailer with it's smokestacks, add in anything else if you want <=D.
ROTF Skystalker's right wing piece (Left axe)and Star Convoy(Encore).

I'm quite unimpressed with the colours. Incredibly bland. I'm quite partial to chrome on my dinobots. It just plain looks good. The colours they chose for those silly little accents are TERRIBLE. they just look very childish (oh the irony).

I don't know. They could do a lot better. They look especially bland in combined mode as well.

I wouldn't say TFC have dropped the ball on this one, more like inflated it with lead and have never even been able to pick it up. Glad to see something coming that I don't want to purchase.

I have that Dinozaurs dino tyranno toy,It's a awesome toy in both modes. I was kinda hoping the movie verse or TF Prime dinobots would look a bit like the dinozaurs/dinozone. with fossisized bones detail all over robot & dino alt modes.

NOW TO COMMENT on the colored 3rd party dinobots in this thread. I love the colored versions. I like the fact each dinobot received a unique color,like red or blue or purple or? having a highlight color makes each color seem like a jem or jewel.

I did notice on the bottom of the pics,their appears to be 2 huge pics of a gestalt combiner head accessory piece. if it belongs to the dinobot combiner. then the head design looks really cool & wicked. hopepully this dinobots combiner does get a few more gestalt accessories like a gestalt head. a gestalt chest plate. a few more gestalt weapons like a huge sword & huge gun blaster.

A kings crown accessory pop off/on piece for the gestalt head of the dinobots combiner. would be awesome on so many levels.

I can see people liking the colors, but ... does anyone like them for their Dinobots?

I don't know why it's so hard (even for Hasbro/Takara) to use the EXACT same chrome and plastic color used in the G1 toys. MP Grimmy did it and was better off for it. If these had chrome and nice grey plastic I think a lot of people would be convinced to buy it.

I'm really not feeling these. >:oP

The quality seems low, and I'd prefer the dinobots to be the same height rather than have the combiner gimmick.

i think drone pieces are lazy and they all suck, look at the failed PCC line and any other drone bots. They suck.Keeping them individual and all transforming adds value.

I meant having a sixth dinosaur that breaks apart into the add on pieces. I.E. you take it apart to make the feet, hands, head, etc.

Where me, Grimlock's, hands?

In all honesty I might still pick it up. My big gripe about it is the fact that the Slag character on one side outweighs the Swoop character on the other side. It looks super uneven.

But didn't anyone notice that there seems to be PROTECTOBOTS in that picture?! I mean, Groove doesn't look much like Groove, but C'MON! I want to know more about THAT set!
Here is what I'm looking for:

Scout:
Windcharger (RTS), Dune Runner (HFTD), Beachcomber (ROTF), Brakedown (ROTF), Oil Pan (ROTF), Breacher (HFTD), Crankstart (HFTD), Sky Stalker (ROTF)

Deluxe:

Those are toys for the Star Cats Rescue Team cartoon, a non-TF related project. They have hinted at a possible Defensor repaint though.

What the eff? Star Cats?! GIMME DEFENSORS!

In reality, though, if they repaint as Defensor, I'm DEFINITELY getting that. He's my favorite combiner.

I really don't care for those dinobots too much, but I am definitely interested in those Star Cats Rescue Team (defensor repaint). Have any robot mode pictures popped up for that set yet?

Now that i see a coloured image of the Dinobot combiner i do like the details of the combined mode, but i could care less about how the individual bots look. I think TFC should take a look at the actual creatures or the G1 versions, because they look terrible now.

Well, isn't this just screaming for more paints. I don't mind the color choices, or not seeing them as a THE Dinobots, but those are some big seas of grey going on.

Wow... the combined head is awf atrocious. I am not feeling the skull/beak face at all. I assume the mortarboard crest has to be that way, but that's not a nigh-invincible combiner face; that's a transformer's crossover with Angry Birds. Maybe if you lost the teeth and nostrils.

Note "prototype images" The thing cant even stand on its own right now. They probably just whipped up some quick prtots for some somewhat combined pictures.

I want this set badly :p TFC is starting to impress more and more lately...

I'm happy to see that this is inspired by G1 and not based on the orginal Dinobots. It seems that TFC is letting us see a more creative side then most other 3rd party companies.

BTW, I think the combined mode looks horrible.

i would have said its all kind of wrong. something just doesn't add up with the figure... is it the individual modes? the combined modes?

there's just something that doesn't ring true.... its like looking at the mona lisa - something isn't quite right, you know it, but you can't put your finger on it

It is suspected to be Deluxe/Voyager sized, maybe around the size of one of the Hercules figs.
How much would they cost?

Unknown, though unlike the Hercules figure, these ones will be mass produced for the Chinese market, so if other suppliers were to get their hands on them, then will hopefully be cheaper than a Herculese figure.
And are these things from a different cartoon as well like the would be "Protectobots" or are they specially made homages to the real Dinos?

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe they are part of the same series as the StarCats "Protectobots" figures, though I've yet to see footage to confirm this. So no, they are not meant to homage the Dinobots, at least not intentionally.
