I can't tell if they really believed they were trying for something somewhat in the spirit of a vein similar to what in a way could be sorta kinda called close to resembling movie-accuracy with these... or if they simply wanted to do gunmetal Dinobots just because.

What is that fin-looking thing on Scor-- DEAR GOD HIS HEAD'S TWISTED UPSIDE-DOWN!

They all look pretty terrible. An ugly, boring mix of chrome, smokey "clear" plastic, and grey... blech.

Kinda bummed on the missing faceplate on the Evolution set. I passed on the Grimlock/Prime set since this one was supposed to have the faceplate too.

Evolution 2-Pack Optimus Prime looks very G1 toy-accurate, but still, nothing beats the Henkei release. Even with more "stylized" paint applications, it's still my modern G1 Optimus Prime of choice for my display. Too bad they couldn't paint the fists blue for Evolution Prime. That's a knock against accuracy. I would have ditched the very sloppy red paint apps on the side flaps for his legs (I guess it was going for more alt-mode accuracy?), leaving the plastic blue, and painted the fists blue instead of leaving them black plastic. Otherwise, it's a nice piece to have in the collection. As for Evasion Mode Prime ver. 8,259, I appreciate the attempt at more "movie prime" deco touches, but it kind of makes the robot mode color layout look very odd. The blue flames on the cab of the truck look very tacky. I think the mold wasn't really meant for a full on "movieverse" Prime deco.

This is probably as screen accurate as we'll get for the Dinobots. What exactly aren't you liking about the set?

The Platinum Edition set is pretty good. Picked mine up at the K-Mart by Astor & 8th Street. The only real issue I have is they should have chromed the canisters on his legs instead of chroming his hands, but he's really nice nonetheless.

I think the best Evasion Prime so far is the Japanese mainline release. The Autobot 5-pack Evasion Prime might beat him though - and that version has a faceplate!

I'm really liking this Dinobot 5 pack and glad I didn't go for SDCC set...had the chance to get one right before they sold out. That's hilarious that Scorn's head is upside down...my gawd can anyone take appropriate pictures of any Transformers release?

I do not know what BBTS.com is going to be charging for this set, but Robotkingdom.com already has a pre-order listed for $159.90 with a release date of October 1, 2014 if anyone cannot wait. The shipping would kill most likely so I'll wait for BBTS.com

Eerm, mixed up about the Dinobots.
I will complete the regulars. But I think I prefer the g1 paint scheme over this one.
Close call though. Can't have 3 sets of Dinobots.
Wish they'd make a Supreme Grimlock (but not that stomp thing)

I dont really care for the gunmetal/chrome mix. It's ok and screen accurate as well will get but I kind of like the color standard versions. Gives each one its own personality in my collection. I am just waiting on Snarl and Slog then calling it done with AOE toys unless they give us a Voyager or Leader class Lockdown.

the same thing happened to me. Is it hyperbole to call this the worst transformed stock photo? I mean they have the dinosaur's head upside down. How could no one at any point of the marketing process see this?!

Also, they don't look too bad, except for Grimlock which has a horrendous deco. That yellow makes no sense. The worst part is that a screen accurate Grimlock deco already exists for the Leader. And guess what, no f&%king yello!

I say if you can afford it, go for Black Knights, they appear more screen accurate to me and the contrast is really cool without being tacky at all

Youtube reviewer and Seibertron.com member IJK Productions just dropped by to share with everyone a video review of Transformers Age of Extinction Voyager Drift. Voyager Drift is a retool of Voyager Skyhammer, transforming into an assault helicopter.

evasion OP's paint is a little too cartoon-ish, ah well, since this is like the only foreseeable chance to get a classic OP without paying extra, I'm 100% getting the pack.

I don't understand why people dislike the 5-pack. It's better (IMO) compared to the SDCC one, and it's cheaper than the Black Knight ones that Takara's releasing. Plus, we don't know if Takara we release a Black Knight Voyager Grimlock and Slog, or Black Knight Deluxes Slash, Snarl, and Strafe.

I wonder if next movie line will give us a triple-changing Drift? Kinda surprised they didn't make one this time around, but the helicopter mode seemed like a last-minute change.

It's a shame Hasbro doesn't really ever repaint Classics-style molds into Movie bots. No Springer->Drift, no adopting "tattoo" Starscream as a new Seeker, no Prowl->Barricade (there's that Prime/TFCC one, but I'm thinking of a "G1" version.)

Seibertron.com user Bounti76 reports a sighting from the Walmart in Layton, Utah, and it's the Cyberverse repaints part of the Age of Extinction exclusives line! Check out below for photo proof of the appearance at retail of Stinger and Grimlock, though we are told that Optimus and Bumblebee were also available, each priced at $5.96 plus tax. Make sure to flag up any of your own sightings in the appropriate section and forums, too!

Found these in East Peoria, Illinois Walmart a couple of days ago. There are two of every figure in the case. I left them and didn't think to post as news. That was the first new sighting at a Walmart in a long time for me here. There are NO AOE deluxes or Generations deluxes on the pegs at any Walmart in my area and there are 5 in a 20 mile radius that I frequent. Walmart is the new Kmart when it comes to Transformers...sucks to no end.

We've had them in the UK for the past two weeks, which means we got exclusives before the us for once :D though we lag behind everything else toywise...

I'm hopefully snagging both of these and maybe, just maybe, the optimus prime. Though I need to decide if I want to collect all the versions of that mold.

Remember guys, those exclusives were found in canada months ago (it was my first news credit ever). The distribution is really really wierd.

Anyways, about Streetwise, we might all think it sucks (I know I do) but people will still pay soooooo much to have him before others. I just checked how much he is going for in the listing where the in hand images come from was and he's going for almost 30$

That's how much the whole pack will probably cost new

Revealed awhile back and priced at $14.99 each, these two-packs features Cyberverse figures paired with repaints of Scout/Basic figures from past toy lines. Optimus Prime is paired with Grimlock which is an Energon Cruellock repaint. Stinger a Cyberverse Bumblebee repaint comes with Slug which is a Beast Wars Neo Guiledart repaint. and Finally Bumblebee comes with Strafe which is a Beast Wars Basic Terrorsaur repaint. Check out the pictures we've provided below. And make sure to post up any of your own sightings in the appropriate section and forums, too!

Rippersnapper being recolored as Grimlock just might work. What do the rest of you think?

This has me hoping that they redo Windrazor as Strafe. With all the TFP Terrorcon repaints out there, I think there's a certain amount of customizing to be had in regards to what the combined form looks like. Almost replaces scramble combining, in a way.

That's the one I want most. Not as Grimlock, though, but as Abominus fodder. Oh how I wish they'd repaint those figures more... or rather more widely release the repaints they did make...

Terrorsaur-Strafe is interesting, if just for the novelty of a BW figure getting a re-release nearly 20 years later. But of course they had to put a Bumblebee in it.

Sorry, with all the crap that Hasbro has released for the AOE line, I have only bought 5 figures for my own collection. Voyager Optimus and Hound (which just feel like large deluxes), and deluxes Crossairs, Drift, and Strafe. I don't think I will be keeping Strafe either since the Dinobots were barely characters in the movie. And non of these figures felt like I got my money's worth. I haven't even seen voyager Galvatron anywhere. Just a lot of these clogging up shelves.

Must be good having a shop that has something more than Wave 1. Seriously, we're stuck at Wave 1 in this shithole. "Best" part is that there are NO Generations figures here.
