So far nothing from this abomination of a toy line makes me want to own it.

Im still undecided if I want to buy the dinobots and slap some con symbols on them. They might make a good faction of predacons to go with the BH preds. But I have no interest in using them for theyre intended purpose. Ive turned my back on the non classics lines unless its a figure that can be repurposed on a classics shelf. And for the record, im sick of grimlock always getting a larger figure than other dinobots in his last 3 toy incarnations. Theyre not a scramble city team and never were.

We may also have Reno Wilson, who tweeted about voice-acting for Age of Extinction, but quickly took it down.

I really need to see the Takara Tomy's version of Evasive Mode OP so I can know if I need to save my money for it or just get the US version when it's out.

that's why I'm getting them. The chubby horny one (Slug? Purplesaurus) is far too purple for me to accept him as a :BOT: (maybe that makes me robo-racist?) even before adding in the red accents to make him very Magneto-esque. The red one, well, he's just red and that's plenty universal as far as TFs go, but his (Vangelus-coined) "Made Of Knives" look feels a lot more :CON: to me. Grimlock would probably work as either, but I like how he reminds me of a cross between Knightmare and Astaroth from the Soul Calibur games. So he's a baddie too.


edit: has no one digibashed these guys into their G1 colour schemes yet? It'd be interesting to see how different the impression they'd give in more traditional colours, because right now, there's only the barest hint of them being related by the kind of similar alt modes.

Digibashed, no. Actual custom? Yes! :D

Those actually look pretty good!

Myself, if I get them, I'll probably treat them as separate characters from the "original" Dinobots (who I plan on representing with FOC Grimlock and the Planet X not-Dinobots, when they're all released), either as an alternate universe/Shattered Glass Dinobot team, or simply as new characters in their own right. Of course, I take the Wayward/Insecticomics viewpoint with canon (ignoring it completely, giving each figure/character their own personality independent of any one series) so my approach won't work for more "hardcore" collectors.

I must admit though, I quite like the multicoloured Dinobots. Grimlock reminds me of Cybertron Scourge (who I've been meaning to get) and the others, especially Slug/Slag, remind me of a particularly spiky Super Sentai team. And to play devil's advocate, the kids are gonna love 'em. I mean, what 7-year-old wouldn't like a spiky purple triceratops that turns into a duel-wielding robot?

Takara you idiots! Lockdown doesn't have a brown robot mode.
I can only wonder what other crap colors they'll use to make them more "accurate" as they're saying.

Well, you should, because they are. How come nobody knows this?
Since when was it dictated all incarnations of a certain character had to be the same as the original? Never.

That's his electronic toy voice, not his movie voice.

cheers for the pics guys. they look okay in g1 colours, but...
yeah, these will be new characters for me. I'm thinking Shockwave's FOC experiments creating the Dinobots were just the start, and he perfected the process and then used it on a team of crazy badass Decepticons.

here's hoping hasbro gets their heads out of their asses and gives us an ultimate grimlock or something.. something that'd be larger than a leader figure.. something that a voyager prime could ride.. i mean, how cool would that be.. a giant transforming t rex.. the leader is FAR from giant.

it's a shame that these figures clearly don't fit in with the rest of the movie collection.

And it's been confirmed they don't have the same voice actor?
