Construct-Bot Grimlock is better-looking than Voyager Grimlock.

And that's a sad, sad fact. :-(

And I noticed something: Construct-Bots uses a numbering system too, only with E (which I think stands for "Episode") instead of Series. Great, more obscure info to document :lol:

The Dinos look pretty decent, but I'm kind of the fence with this line.

Strafe looks kinda generic without his shoulder-pteranodon-heads thing. On the other hand, he'd make an excellent base for a Hun-Grrrrr custom.
Actually, you could probably make all kinds of crazy monster TFs with these...

Now that Construct-Bots look pretty decent, I think I'll start picking some up.

Earlier this week, we treated you to the Seibertron galleries of the Age Of Extinction Constructbots. We covered the Dinobots and how they can interact with the smaller Constructbot figures, the riders. You can see those galleries right here: Dinobot Constructbot Galleries

And now, it's the riders turn! Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest galleries, Age of Extinction Construct-Bots Dinobot Riders Lockdown, Drift, Bumblebee, and Optimus Prime!

Without further ado, the preview pics:

I'm amused that the Dino-Riders have the same proportions as MTMTE Swerve and Tailgate

Can anybody who has the Construct-Bots tell me if the Dino Riders' parts compatible with the standard Construct-Bots?

I'm LOVING the Riders and Dinos. I'm gonna try and pick up Lockdown first. I love how it looks like one of his eyes is twitching, and the cues to animated in the toy. I totally found some Construct-bots Strafe's in a Canadian Wal-mart, and they refused to sell it to me :-(

They all use the same clips and ball joints. As a bonus, the ball joints are compatible with Kre-o ball joints.

I like these guys. They look a lot more interesting then the regular simplified transformation lines from the movie. If I pick up the Dinobots, I'll try to pick these up too.

This was my first time putting my hands on Construct-Bots. I own all the rest that came out, just haven't had a chance to open any of them and I never bothered to tinker around with them at any of the events I attended that Hasbro had them out at such as SDCC, NYCC, etc.

I actually really like the Construct-Bots. I can't believe how huge they are for the price. The $10 ones are an absolute bargain. Yah, they're a little unorthodox. But as a cheap way to get some really nice head sculpts and some interesting takes on some of our favorite characters, the Construct-Bots were a really nice treat.

My favorite is my "custom" Soundwave. I swapped out the yellow parts with the black parts from an extra Starscream I have. He turned out pretty nice. I also was pleasantly surprised that the 2 pack of Prime and Megatron had unique head sculpts from the regular Elite Class releases. Unnecessary, but welcomed at the same time!

The Dinobot Riders were fun little basic toys. For the $5 retail price, I think they're very worth it. If they were $8 to $10 they'd be disappointing, but for $5 what the heck! Lockdown is my favorite of that group.

Hopefully they'll figure out a way to make an additional scale of figures for smaller characters like Bumblebee and Cliffjumper that should only come to Soundwave, Prime and Megatron's chests. Not small scale like the Dinobot Riders, but a happy compromise that shortens up the legs or something.

Still leading up to the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction next month, and pushing very close to the official street date for its accompanying toys (17th May), Seibertron.com has yet another dino-themed Contruct-Bot offering to show you! Check out below, by clicking any of the images, the double-trouble set of Construct-Bots Dinobot Warriors Optimus Prime and Gnaw Dino - who is both a green crocodino and Optimus' new battle throw. What do you think of this new gimmick? Let us know in the ever-fun Energon Pub inside!

I wait with baited breath...for this to go on clearance so I can snap it up! :grin:

That combining gimmick is really neat, I think. I was looking forward to that on the Beast Hunters Constructbots, but those never even came out.

Me too. Were they confirmed as cancelled when Target's exclusive Predacons Rising stuff shelfwarmed, or is there still some glimmer of hope? I just got CB Predaking on clearance, and he's a hell of a lot better than I guessed he'd be.

Oddly, these 2-packs were what I've been looking forward to most ever since Toy Fair, and I'm a tad disappointed to see the armor dinos don't also have their own robot modes, but I guess this makes them the equivalent of Action Master partners.

Though what Optignaw's combination REALLY reminds me of is this:

Seibertron.com is proud to present a gallery of Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Grimlock. This is our 17th gallery from the Transformers Age of Extinction toy line! Leader Class Grimlock is one of the most anticipated figures from the upcoming toy line which will be officially released on May 17th at brick-and-mortar stores.

While he isn't much bigger in T-Rex mode than his Voyager Class counterpart, but is much taller in robot mode. The new AOE Leader Class toys are similar in size to Ultra Class toys from previous Transformers toy lines. One striking feature of this version of Grimlock is the large amounts of chrome paint that are on this toy, which appears to be a divisive feature amongst many fans.

Check out all of our pics to decide if you'll be picking up Leader Class Grimlock. When you do find him, please make sure you stop by our sightings section to let others know that you found him!

Just to clarify where this toy came from, it was purchased on eBay.
