Is it sad that I like this much more the original Purplesaur deco?

Now, let's see all of the Age of Extinction Dinobots in some Generation One-inspired decoes. 8)

Slug has an awesome head in robot mode, and this deco looks so cool. Hope it's metalic and not to expensive on the bay :s

Can't wait! G1 Dinobot homages out of Age of Extinction Dinobots is pretty awesome in my book.

Not surprised. Kinda relieved. Wonder if Hasbro will follow suit? This might look good next to FOC Grimlock?

Now this is what the AOE Dinobots in the Evolution two-packs should look like to get them off the shelves. I still like the look of the purple version but the more the merrier.


I also really want a purple Scorn. :PREDACON:

Its like putting lipstick on a pig. Its not classics slag. I actually like the purple version better as a generic predacon for my classics shelf.

I was hoping they would do some G1 Colors. Hasbro did a few for some of the movie figures in the past 3, but they were nothing to write home about. My only hope with these is that they are not going to cost to much more than the regular price...

But thats a bit to hopeful as Hasbro would up the price anyways...

Looks like any other Bayformer we have got before at regular retail painted up in G1 colors. The only difference is that this one is at "exclusive" pricing. You know what that means.

Hand over your wallet.

Not at all. I think it would be sad if you DIDN'T.

I heard it was going to be 6000 yen and immediately said "no". Perhaps Hasbro will do a redeco but I'm not even going to try to get this one.

Boring, as I thought it would be. Also, why should non-g1 Dinobots have G1 colors?

Because a lot of folks really love G1 homages.

No one batted an eye at the Energon or Animated Dinobots having G1-based decos.

Allow me to rephrasd. Why should non-G1 style Dinobots have G1 colors. If it's based on the G1 designs, such as the energon and animated dinos, G1 colors are expected. The movies dinos are completely new design and 3 of them are completely new dinobots. Why should they have G1 colors when the don't resemble their G1 counterparts?

To rephrase my statement more bluntly, a lot of folks have real boners for G1 homage decos.

Though, to use a better example, there were those Walmart Dinobots that used Beast Wars Neo Predacon molds, yet all (save for Terranotron/Swoop and Sludge) had the G1 silver/red colors.

aside from nostalgia, I think the G1 Dinobot colour scheme is pretty good in general, especially for a whole team. A lot of TF groups have united colourings, even if some of the individual members have their own variations on that theme, and it'd be nice to get these AOE Dino molds all wearing the same outfits. Still, without new heads at the very least I'm not sure I could shove them into my Classics collection as the G1 Dinobot characters, so I'll definitely get the original Hasbro colours first.

There's also the PCC Grimstone figure. It they weren't G1 coloured, then they wouldn't have been sold out everywhere before *I* could get a set! :BOOM:

wish I was made of nine dinosaurs...

Wake me when they make the Dinobots in G2 colors.
They never make them in G2 colors...

Seeing this makes me a little disappointed modern figures don't do that "technogreeblies under a glass dome/covering" the original Dinobots did.

I agree, this would be awesome!
