Slog is my most wanted Dinobot of this year, even surpassing the Grimlock voyager version that I already got. I dunno why, but I really like the way that Slog is done. He probably should be bigger, fitting his alt-mode, but I guess we'll just settle for a titanic robot using the Pillars of Halaak as weapons.

Nor did Slash, either.

Slash's Raptor form did make it into concept as a small army, probably playing on the idea that Raptors hunted in packs.

Slog looks pretty good but needs more paint. Hopefully that will come in the platinum edition 5 pack. That Silver Knight Optimus is still garbagio even though the chrome makes it look a little better than in the unchromed pic.

Nothing to get excited about here, just looking forward to the next Generations releases. :roll:

At least the price tag for that Silver Knight Optimus is slightly more justified, as it's pretty much the same paint mask. There's no way that Hasbro could sell the unchromed mess we've seen previously for $60.

What an abhorrent abomination. Totally disappointed in this one. Especially that head sculpt in bot mode, brutal.
I was hoping for a decent Sludge from Hasbro. On the bright side there are other sources that possibly may provide me with an acceptable Sludge i like.

Is it because they're selling or low stock?


I'm assuming it means those products are selling. Collectors are a fun bunch when it comes to this stuff. If stores are low on products, fans blame the stores saying they're not stocking stuff (god forbid if it's actually selling faster than we're used to). If stores are heavy on products, fans flame the stores saying that too much product was ordered (god forbid that stores actually try to maintain inventory levels so their shelves aren't empty). Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I will say my Walmart in town is loaded with those little 1-Step changers (hundreds of them, in 3 different spots). I stop in there everyday, and there is always the same few Generations Slugs (cut horns) and a Bumblebee on the shelf.The Dino-Sparkers have been full since the day they came out, and have never moved. Generations are selling, but they aren't ordering nearly as much as they used to. There isn't even enough space in the 2-3 foot area in the isle for all the different things that are out. They got 1 case of Whirl/Rhinox/Dealer and I found Whirl on an endcap, since there is no (non-movie)Generations Voyager spot on the shelf for him to go. They get maybe 1 case of Generations stuff at a time, and very infrequently.
I really do not think this is a case of "they are getting more every day and selling them out", they just don't get them. At the very least not enough to keep shelves full. None of my area stores even got that big Wave One end cap display at all.

Posted by Delta Magnus on July 17th, 2014 @ 2:07pm CDT
Amen to that, Seibertron. I'd rather a store was overloaded with TFs than practically barren- more toys for me!

What I don't like is when the stores are filled with loads of a single toy (as is happening with Airachnid in my local store) or they only stock the crappy stuff and get none of the gold in. Of course with Toys'R'Us having an exclusivity deal on the non-crap AOE toys in the UK...Sigh. I do wish there were laws in place to prevent big chains having exclusive rights to products, but with the firm grip Walmart and TRU have on both Hasbro's and the government's testicles that's not gonna happen.

So yeah. This all sucks, because I really want Scorn! The guy's awesome even if he is much too small. In fact, I'll be perfectly honest, I'd like to see Scorn given the Lugnut treatment- given a redesign and added to the official G1 Dinobot roster. Robot spinosaurus = awesome, regardless of continuity.

As for the new products...

Snarl looks a bit iffy TBH. Not terrible, but he looks a little bare-bones. It's the arms that are the problems- the weird angle they're fixed at is just yeurch. Especially considering the hollow forearms could have just let them fold into the cavity and hide better in Stegosaurus mode. The rest of him is great though.

Bumblebee is...ugh. The base mold itself isn't too bad (I'm fairly tolerant of shellforming provided it's done well, ala RID Side Burn) but I honestly don't see why they bothered with the shuriken thingies. He never used them in the movie, and surely it would make more sense to nix them from the mold and use the extra budget for something that would make sense, like his hand cannon?

Hot Shot looks OK but I like the mold better as Crosshairs (especially with the extra paint apps of the Takara version).

Slog...Looks gorgeous. That is the best brachiosaurus mode I've seen on a transformer, third or first party. Aside from the fact that proportionally it looks like an actual brachiosaurus as opposed to a "brontosaurus", the thing's a slaggin' walking fortress. Just look at all those spikes! The weapons are a little dumb but I reckon with repainting they'd look good. The only thing I can say about the mold I don't like is his lack of a wrist swivel and subsequent "monkey arms", meaning he can't hold his weapons well. Still, does a 'bot as big as Slog/Sludge need weapons to kick manifolds? (Although for what it's worth, with a bit of modification I reckon those sword/lance/drill things would make great shoulder cannons. Because there is nothing so awesome as a robotic brachiosaurus with heavy artillery).

Silver Knight Optimus Prime is a million times better than I thought he would be...but he still looks like crap, and in any case the FE mold is objectively terrible from what I heard, especially compared to the second version. Also, there's the fact he never actually uses that huge energy shield in the movie, using the smaller cannon version instead. He also still suffers from severe chrome-a-lack (at least on the parts that actually need chrome).

And goddamnit Hasbro, if you're gonna photoshop your stock photos then at least do it well.

I see a few comments referring to the oversimplification of the figures in the line. I just wanted to comment that I do not agree with that. When it comes to the deluxe dinobots, they have as much if not more complexity than any of the animal transformers released in North America.

While there are figures that are purposefully simplified, I do not feel the straight up "generations" figures are less complex than what has come before especially when comparing ot the likes of the Beast Machines Optimus/Cheetor, BW TM2 Cheetor and even most of the first wave Beast Wars figures like Optimus Primal and Rhinox.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

The toys were on a tiny shelf, dedicating that shelf to only AOE toys. There were only Wave 1 Deluxe (excluding Drift), One-Step, Flip'n'Change, Voyager, Leader and Power Attackers toys. I looked around and girl toys were dominating the shelves, no other Transformers. I doubt if they had any Transformers toys at all before the AOE toyline was released.

Why does that OP have blue shins? There is literally no blue anywhere else on the figure. Why not just make it that black color like his shoulders and forearms?

I cant wait for slog to come out. But I will wait for retail. Im not gonna pay 75 bucks from bbts with a drift I dont need. I understand that bbts needs to make theyre money because they are going to get stuck with alot of grimlocks and primes when that wave comes out. But thats not my problem. Im confident ill find slog in Walmart by the end of August.

On a separate note, I would love to see "thread merging" abolished. Its so freaking annoying to see conversations about 10 different topics mixed together just because they are loosly related to Michael Bay.

Indeed. It's somewhat annoying having to scroll through 2 pages of comments on a news article to reply to a comment for a previous article. Then again, without these merged threads, I'd probably have a million different threads opened in different tabs, all of which basically discuss the same topic.

Things like Hero Mashers are usually in separate threads from the mainline toys.

Takara-Tomy updated it's Age Of Extinction toy line website with Black Knight Dinobots and Movie Advanced EX Wheeljack, which are exclusive to the Japanese market. Scorn and Slug are due to be released sometime this November

Slug will be released by Joshin Kids Land Yodobashi Camera.

Scorn will be released through the following stores:
Kojima toy department
Edion
Best Denki
Yamada Denki
Bic Camera

Theyalso updated their listings to include the upcoming Movie Advanced EX Wheeljack. This redeco of Wheeljack (or Que, as he was known in the film) was supposed to see release in late 2011, early 2012 in the "Movie Trilogy Line" but the subline was abruptly canceled after the initial release, Optimus Prime. Now, thanks to the Movie Advanced line, we finally have a chance to get those figures, even if it means importing them. Featuring an all white deco with a G1 style headsculpt, this one is one of the more anticipated figures. figure, a white version of Dark of the Moon Que with the Generation 1 inspired Wheeljack is an Aeon exclusive, scheduled to be released sometime in August.

We've mirrored the images below:

The Takara-Tomy update train keeps chugging along! Takara Tomy has updated their website with information about the Toys R Us Japan exclusive Movie Advanced EX Optimus Prime "Rusty" Version. This figure is the Evasion Mode Optimus Prime Voyager Class mold in film accurate deco, unlike the G1 theme the current Hasbro figure is sporting. It also features a remolded head with the faceplate intact instead of the full faced version we have now.

Included are comparison photos of the original Evasion Mode and the upcoming Rusty version.

Another Takara Tomy update? You bet! They've updated their Transformers website with a listing for Movie Advanced EX Rollbar. Rollbar is a redeco of Generations Skids, made to look like Shane's rally car from Age Of Extinction. The Chevy that Shane drove turned out to be a plain old car and not a Transformer in the film, but thanks to Hasbro and Takara, we're still getting a toy out of it anyway!

Rollbar will be available for purchase in Japan in November of this year, exclusive to Toys "R" Us. Here in the states, we'll receive Rollbar as part of a figure multipack based off of the Cemetary Wind farm attack sequence in Age Of Extinction. That set will feature "Rusty" Optimus as well. (You can read up on the Rusty Optimus here)

Yes, please. Also, it's a matter of cleanliness. Do you have any idea how many duplicate threads and posts we have to deal with? How much space/data they eat up on the server? It's not the worst thing ever, of course, but it's certainly not efficient and makes it harder on the staff.

We merge threads so everything is as tidy as possible. It's not to make things harder for the users, quite the opposite, in fact. We are always open to suggestions, so please post them and we'll do our best to figure out a system that works for everyone.

Been saying that for the past several years. I can understand it for conventiony things, where there's a lot of news coming out of one thing, (and even then, it's extremely annoying) but when it's news topics days and weeks apart, no.

The thing that kills it for me isn't the forums neccesarily, it's the way the news page processes. 9 times out of 10, I'm commenting on a news article with the "click here to join the discussion", I'm not already in the forums themselves. So when the news article itself has three seperate news posts for other things, such as AOE FE Knight Prime's post in the article for Sludge, it's more than a little jarring...

Regarding Rusty Prime and Rollbar, I wonder which idea came first: Hasbro's Breakout Battle set which includes an extra Crankcase, or TakaraTomy's single release. :-?

I'm also pondering repurposing possibilities for Rollbar, being a Generations mold and all.

The Dinobot 5 pack is really odd to me. I was guessing it be similar to the one at SDCC but this pack is missing Snarl for some reason. If it was the G1 colours or a simple reissue of the SDCC pack, then why would it not contain Snarl? Also, though none of us may care for it, this means there is no chance Slash will have a redeco.

You are right about Slash. Besides the toy, he has no comic/cartoon/movie char anywhere. Just who is this crappy huge velociraptor mold? :HEADHURTS:

According to the silhouette, it will have Grimlock, Slug, Scorn, SwoopStrafe and Slog, all the Dinos that appeared in the movie plus Slog. I don't think it will be G1-themed set.

So then this would be an independent set from what was hinted at from Hasbro:

G1 Dinobots set with Strafe, Grimlock, Slug, and Snarl (where's Sludge/Slog? Hasbro said they are working on it for a separate release)

Is there a problem with snarl redeco? why is it hard for him to be included in either sets?

That latter set would be the SDCC one.
