You've seen the new Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager Grimlock. You've seen the new Deluxe Scorn - are you ready for the third and final Dinobot from the first wave of movie universe toys? Check out below the mean, killing purplesaur Triceratops that is Slug, in both his dino and robot knight mode. The figure comes with two sword/lances and plenty of horns, and the galleries, accessed by clicking on any image below, also have comparison shots with previous incarnations of more or less the same character!

Sweet mercy! Look at his face! Or rather, his lack of one! A single visor one a smooth, undetailed head? Never would I have ever expected so simplistic a face design to come from a movie toy. At least paint him a mouthplate, Hasbro.

It's just... he looks like a 90's masked vigilante from one of those Liefeldian comics that knocked off the more major superheroes.

I'm not saying it's awful, I'm just saying it's... yikes! Gonna take some getting used to.

It's a knight's jousting helm. It's not supposed to have a mouthplate.

All in all, I really like the Dinobots thus far. I can't wait to own them.

All I'm trying to say is that some more color or more detail below the eyes would have been nice.

Scorn got some, so there's precedence.

I know what it's supposed to be, but since that is his actual face, it makes his face look featureless, like this:




If it alleviates anything, I will say this. I do love the shape of the headsculpt.

So, now they are knighted dragons rather than dinobots? Oh geez....

Saves me money.

Speaking of helmets, we know have a Great Helm for Scorn, a frog-mouth helm for Slug and a something helm for Grimlock.

What about the other two dinos?

Slash appears to be wearing what is stereotypically a knight helmet to me. This one's not exactly what I mean, but it has openings along the mouthguard and separate eyeholes

Also, am I the only one who wants to see the Dinobots ride each other Junkion style?

Hmm. Yes. I see what you mean.
(My major concern with Slash are those hopefully mistransformed spikes on its thighs, ready to impale itself everytime it crouches or bends forwards!)

Strafe's head is actually quite similar to Grimlock's, too.

Neat, but I can see myself getting bored of this figure very quickly.

This guy looks cool, I just hate how thin the thighs are right before the knees... they shoulda been a bit thicker like slugs.

What kills me is they sandwiched his head with the production stamp. They couldn't put it behind his legs?

Seriously? No one has said anything about the "more or less the same character" featuring ROTF Ravage? Am I the only one who laughed at that? :-(
As for Slug himself, I love it as much as the other Dinobots, sure, the colors are kinda random(should have gone at least with, I don't know, G2 green?) and the faces practically non existant due to the helmets, but I love just because their transformations are interesting, not just stand-up-and-straighten like with most beast formers we've gotten recently.

Can't wait to hve these Dinobots!
Also...now the Whole Dinobot roster is:
Grimlock- T-Rex
Sludge- Long neck(Brontosaurus?)
Slag/Slug- Triceratops
Snarl- Stegosaurus
Swoop- Pterodactyl
Paddles- Plesiosaurus
Grimstone- Styraccosaurus
Slash- Velociraptor
Scorn- Spinosaurus
And I don't know if Strafe would count as an updated Swoop or on his own.

Any way, cool! Lots of Dinobots to go now! Did I miss anyone?
