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.

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.

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.

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.

Rick Sellers doesn't do film voice acting.

And in this video interview Jon did with him, he says that they almost never get the original voices from the movies/shows to do the toy voices:

Ok, been thinking about the toys for a bit now, and am expecting Ryan's galleries to show up soon too.

I am really intrigued by all the dinoknights. Voyager Grimlock is the least appealing, but.
But.

Scorn looks pretty good, Slug is actually pretty fun - will be very interesting to see Strafe and Slash in their Generations version rather than the simplified versions! :D

I have a pet theory that it's easier to tolerate the simplified designs of a deluxe when it's a beastformer, where the kibble can be integrated in interesting ways (Grimlock's shoulder pauldrons, Scorn's "wings"). And these Dinobots do look like the strongest aspect of the line.

I'm planning on matching them up against Beast Hunters Predacons for an all new 'beast wars'...

What are you talking about? Which Beast Hunters toys were inaccurately colored? In fact, which ones actually appeared in the show to even be considered "inaccurately colored"?

The Seibertron.com staff have spotted an interesting lot of sales on electronic marketplace eBay, namely from Taiwan based seller megalopolitan. They appear to have prepared a whole bunch of listings of upcoming Kre-O play sets from the Transformers: Age of Extinction movie, which include: Cell Block Breakout with Bumblebee, Evasion Mode Optimus and Vehicons, Dinobot Charge with Drift and Vehicons, Galvatron Factory Battle with Bumblebee, Optimus, Galvatron, and human scientists, Grimlock Street Attack with Gold Knight Optimus Prime and Vehicons, Lockdown Air Raid with Lockdown, Hound and Sideswipe, Optimus Prime Dino Hauler with Ratchet and Vehicons, and Scorn Street Chase with Crosshairs and Vehicons. Will some of these scenes be featured in the movie itself? Only time will tell - in the meantime, check out the images mirrored below!

Did they just take the Galvatron set picture from this site's (or another fan site's) Toy Fair coverage? You can see the actual toy in front of the box -- Bumblebee in the claw, Megatron's(?) disembodied head in a jar, those schematic screens...


If these sets go like the other Kre-O sets did, might as well wait for Black Friday or some other big sale.

Every time I see that, I know the bridge like thing is suppose to be like what Grimlock crashes through, but when I saw a pick of it open and closed, and seeing guns on him, while OP rides him. I think Dyno-riders.....which I still have some, few I gave to my daughter.

Are these Kre-O sets the first and only time that we're seeing Sideswipe as part of the AOE line? I'm very curious because not only is he red, but it appears like the print on his body is a movie style. And aside from being red, he doesn't look very much like G1 Sideswipe so it's not as if he were some add on figure to the set like they did the original ones.

Or did someone screw up and call Stinger Sideswipe?

Youtube user Transformers and Power Rangers Toy Reviews gives us a look at Flip and Change Grimlock and Smash and Change Optimus. Kinda underwhelming really. Optimus sort of looks like a knock-off, and Grimlock just sucks. Good for kids though!

Courtesy of Youtube user Transformers and Power Rangers Toy Reviews, via a tip from fellow Seibertron.com user Fires_Of_Inferno we get a look at two of the simplified Robots in Disguise line from the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie. Check out below the embedded videos for Flip and Change Grimlock and Smash and Change Optimus Prime, clearly designed for increased rough play value and endurance rather than transformation or variation in poses.

well, I typed Gobotron, then realised that's probably already a site. Since we use the Japanese spelling of Cybertron, and I was too lazy to look up if there was a Japanese translation of the Gobots' homeworld, I winged it.
