Botcon in all its celebrated overall coolness, did bring us some bad news...the DINOBOT molds are lost!
So how does one satisfy the desire to own the molds without paying the ever increasing prices for these fantastic and quite popular toys?
Glad you asked because the answer is...buy the Justitoys Smallest versions. Previous Seibretron Toy News
highlighted the release of Desert Warrior (Snarl), Commander (Grimlock), and Flamethrower (Slag), and their re-colored versions.
Now Justitoys is finishing up the famous five-some by releasing Jungle Warrior (Sludge), and Mystery Figure Set (Swoop and all missile launchers).
Sludge is coming along very well, as you can see here on the Jungle Warrior Pre-Order Webpage
Due out in the Fall, these should become a whole lot more popular with the bad news about the full-sized official versions of the molds.
Also of interest:
-More pics of the MP-05 Megatron Stock and Barrel Accessories
that are set to be available in August.
-Spike and Sparkplug Diaclone driver-sized figures...see them here
-And finally, light up Energon Cubes
Pre-orders are still available for all items.
