I second that. i.e. Take a look at the FOC Slag..his conversion from Triceratops to robot form in particular. There is virtually no feasible approach in designing him. Unless you have a crapload of snap-on/snap-off pieces like the ever-classic G1 Omega Supreme figure. And how humble of you to say, Get Right..honestly, no future dinobot could live up to your masterpiece custom work.

It's so G1-y in it's Transformation and robot mode.

Just a couple of updates/tweaks to both.

I'd love a toy of this. Sad that it is more likely there will not be a toy, as that there will.

I don't know about that. There are some really talented designers out there. Hasbro/Takara/3rd Party/Customizers. I don't think I've made the end all of Dinobots, but I really appreciate you saying so. :D

I just can't see how these can be translated into great toys. These game designs are what I've imagined for a long time. I love them!

Lets face it, this is something Hasbro will know. If they don't make toys of the Dinobots, they will get one upped by a 3rd party. To be honest, I would prefer a 3rd party version because they would probably all be voyager sized.

That. Is. Epic beyond words. I'm loving his robot mode right now.
This is how I rate the dinobots
1) Grimlock
2) Snarl
3) Slag
4) Swoop
5) Sludge

Voyager sized 3rd-party versions would cost about $100 each. Maybe that's OK for you, but a lot of us can't afford that. I'd rather have Hasbro Deluxes for $12/each.

Snarl looks awesome! However, has anyone else noticed that while the facebook page names Sludge and Swoop, they don't specifically name Snarl and Slag. I wonder if there will be a name change there considering the word Slag is frowned upon in some places.

The Triceratops' name is Slug.

mmhmm, and it is a stupid name change. I'm Scottish and I don't mind him being called Slag. I can see a problem getting it localised in the uk without it though. I'll call him Slag no matter what they call him.

Depends on where you shop. If you only shop at BigBadToyStore then yes it would cost that much. I shop at Robotkingdom and they are a lot cheaper. I got the Herc components shipped for less than BBTS were offering before shipping. However, I do take the point that they would be more expensive. I would pay for them though.

Grimlock would be tricky, though, as his body literally morphs in shape during his in-game transformation.

Not saying it won't happen. just that it'll be tricky.

Though, could one remind me of when the confirmation of his toy was given (seriously, I can't remember)? :oops:

I wouldn't tempt fate. We have not even seen a prototype. We've had toys manufactured and packaged, that never got to our stores... So..uhm. Yeah, I wouldn't go counting any eggs.

I know it's been said before, but how is it that the Dinobots even exist on Cybertron in their dinosaur altmodes? Dinosaurs are an Earth species, so if FOC takes places millions of years ago, it wouldn't make sense for them to be anything but Cybertronian animals.

The game's story is set about 65 million years ago. Shockwave has captured five members of the Lightning Strike Coalition for him to experiment on. He uses ancient Space Bridge technology to look at an alien planet (Earth) and sees several powerful looking lifeforms (dinosaurs) on its surface. Inspired, Shockwave uses the designs of these creatures to rebuild his five captives into forms resembling these alien beings, so that Shockwave may then have five uber powerful minions to command. So thus, he creates the Dinobots, hence Grimlock being referred to as a "Space T-Rex".
