That Dinobots set is sold!

That trailer Prime comes with is just a redeco of the MP-10 trailer.

Haha, Stinger's just a redeco of ROTf Sideswipe. :P

In the pic that shows the trailer closed, it's silver. In the pic that shows the trailer open, it's blue. Anyone know why?

I'm not the first to notice it then. Shame it's the First Editon mold.

Swerve, it has the retooled head.

Sweet...Screw the SDCC 2014 Dino Set and I'm canceling my preorder for the G1 exclusive Slog from Amazon.

I'll gladly let BBTS take my money for their Dinobots Platinum set...I'd go as high as $225. I hope it is not more than that. At least I think Hasbro will produce more for BBTS than were produced for SDCC.

Way to go BBTS...hope you recover what was lost on the Transformers Prime Dark Energon figs from last year. These exclusives are much better. :BOWDOWN: :BOT:

If Crosshairs had looked like that in his individual retail release, he wouldn't be warming pegs now...

And I am SO on board for the Dinobots redeco...SO glad I didn't spring for the SDCC set.

A redeco of Sideswipe as the Stinger? Really? Dang it.
I want a legit Stinger and the 1-Step ain't cuttin' it for me.

Either way, odd choice. Still haven't seen the movie, but doesn't Stinger look closer to Bumblebee?

Actually, in robot mode, Bumblebee and Stinger are exact duplicates. Only their vehicle modes are different. Reshelling Deluxe Class Bumblebee would've been ridiculously easy, but they went the cheap route.

Any Idea of prices for the Autobot 5 pack?

I hope that these aren't finalized and that Stinger has a retooled head on the actual toy.

You kidding? That SDCC Dinobots set is getting massacred by folks who picked up up at the con. Disappointments range from things like some of the worst cases of chrome flaking ever, to Snarl being an awful figure, to all four being quite frail and fragile due to the special materials that went into making them, to the pop up base itself being even more frail and fragile (some say it falls apart even if you just look at it funny). Thus, many are also canceling their Amazon Slog preorders.

It sounds to me like those who were disatisfied with their SDCC Dinobots sets were like a kid in the late 80's/early 90's who just bought a G1/G2/BW toy they've always wanted, only to get home and find out that it's one of the infamous victims of GPS. :P

It's definitely Sideswipe, not Stinger. Photos of the box for that set are already out, and Sideswipe is clearly called out on the packaging. I'm happy about that, though. A repainted ROTF Sideswipe (or more correctly, Swerve, based on the head sculpt) would be a terrible rendition of Stinger. I'd rather a repaint of Bumblebee with a new head. It wouldn't be an accurate alt mode, but the bot mode would be right at least.

Yes! The Dinobots ARE in their movie-accurate colours! Huzzah!

Though using Sideswipe as Stinger wouldn't be without precedent. One of Sideswipe's working names was in fact "Stinger" based on his alt mode (Chevy Stingray) and was done in red to boot.
