Transformers Colombia, a Facebook fan page, has provided the first official in and out of package images of the upcoming Constructbots Dinofire Grimlock, courtesy of group member Felipe León Nájera.

This set was mentioned in a press release during Toy Fair back in February. Here's the product information from that release:

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION CONSTRUCT-BOTS DINOFIRE GRIMLOCK
(Ages: 7 & up /Approx. Retail Price: $39.99/Available: August 2014)
Construct, change and customize the ultimate DINOBOT warrior with this huge, 10-inch tall electronic version of the breakout character from the new film TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION! Kids can build GRIMLOCK and convert him from robot to dino-mode and back without taking him apart. Plus, GRIMLOCK unleashes his fire breath in dino-mode with electronic light-up jaws and 3 rapid fire projectiles! Armor up for battle with two additional rapid-fire cannons and an epic battle sword. All of the parts for TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS DINOFIRE GRIMLOCK can be interchanged with parts from any other TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS action figure, so kids can create the ultimate DINOBOT action figure! Also comes with a DINOBOT RIDERS-scale OPTIMUS PRIME figure that can ride GRIMLOCK in dino-mode, and which also features customizable parts that work across all TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS sets!

Is it sad or happy that this is the best/coolest looking Grimlock to be released? The movie line can't even compare to this. :roll:

It's always happy if there is something you like. But I do not see what anyone else sees in this toy, those dino feet look so huge on the robot mode. So let me know how this is better than the actual Grimlock AoE figures

This is by no means a desirable toy to me. I am just making a sarcastic comment because the movie leader and voyager class Grimlock both look horrible in Dino mode. Despite the big clown hands and feet catered to kids, this Grimlock is well proportioned and has the best looking Dino mode compared to the other two IMO.

Ok, that's actually pretty badass. :APPLAUSE:

Is it just me, or are the Construct-Bots turning out to be the best part of the AOE line?
Re: Transformers: Age Of Extinction Constructbots Dinofire Grimlock Official Images (1571477)
Posted by william-james88 on May 5th, 2014 @ 2:21pm CDT
I just noticed something and if anyone can confirm or add to this, it would be most welcome.

I just realized that the evolve deluxe AOE figures might not be the same as the generations deluxe figures.

Here is deluxe evolve

Image

And here is deluxe genertions

Image

But are these simply redecos or more extensive retools?

I ask because unless he is mistransformed, generations Strafedoes not seem to transform at all from his alt mode to his robot mode:

Image


Image

Maybe this is old news, but I wanted to know if you guys also caught that and if we know if this robot does transform and if so in how many steps (I cant find a picture of the back of the box anywhere)

Edit:

After further scrutiny on my part, it looks like its the same figure. Actually, every generations figure on the hasbro page I linked below is the same as the ones we have seen but they look more like crap since they arent promotional pictures. This kind of saddens me. Dirge and Slash get hit particularly hard by these new pics and take away a lot of their cool factor I thought they once had. At least it gives us a better idea of what they will look like once we open them. http://www.hasbro.com/en_CA/shop/browse ... l&items=50

^ The fourth picture in your post, in robot mode, is mistransformed. Look at the box art on the in package generations release and you'll see that they've mistransformed the legs and done nothing to fold away the dino heads.

so that means that the robot head kibble seen in the alt mode will remain there?

Those Construct-Bot Grimlock images do a good job of hiding the fact that half of his dino body is hanging off his back. He's pretty nice as Construct-bots go, but I wouldn't buy him at full price.

Reports have been coming in for a while now, but Seibertron member reluctantyouth was kind enough to drop by with some photographic evidence that the Transformers: Age of Extinction mainline has started popping up at retail. Pictured below is Deluxe wave one, which consists of Crosshairs, High Octane Bumblebee, Scorn, and Slug. Keep in mind the official street date for these figures is May 17th, you may encounter issues actually purchasing them. Good luck, and happy hunting!

One SE Michigan TRU just put this case and those Sparker things (OP on Grim, and Drift on Slug) out on Monday, but I was broke so I didn't think to scan them, because I thought the street date was May 1st instead of the 17th. The price tag on the shelf was $14.99 for the deluxes.

Don't want to say more until I double-check availability tomorrow.

Hot on the heels of the earlier Transformers: Age of Extinction Deluxe retail sighting, we now have a report of the Leader class figures showing up as well. Instagram user andydbodine found Optimus Prime and Grimlock a Target in San Diego County. Again, the actual brick and mortar street date for these figures isn't until May 17th, they may not ring up properly during check out.

Actually it has to do few things at toysrus and other retail store I work at retail store and every frozen toy always gets sold out we can't keep them on self, depends how early you get there, how many cases they have on truck to show up on shipment, and how popular they sell with kids right now frozen is popular with girls at toysrus toys not movie, and I forgot to mention some people buy some there collectors, sell on ebay, birthday partys, unlike Walmart with some people get there's early toys rus obeys rules Walmart care less Walmart could or already could have got fined for selling there transformer age of extiction figures before release date suppose to be out on box as stated

Walmart has the pegs for these things ready to go.

$15 for a deluxe. $25 for a voyager. This should be no load on your wallet if you are accustom to any other form of HIGHWAY ROBBERY.

Morning,

My picture of the deluxes posted in this forum is not faked!! This was taken on Saturday May 3rd, 2014 at a very very old Toys R Us located in East Moline, Illinois. There was one box of AOE deluxes and one box of Dino Sparkers on the pegs. There was an excess of everything else in the store. You have to remember this is the midwest and we get the leftover crap from either coast most of the time. I'm sorry to say there are fewer Transformer enthusiasts in my area as well. I see a lot of Hotwheels guys and Mcfarlane guys, but only a couple of real Transformer Fans. This store is so outdated that the front has not been changed. The front still looks like Toys R Us when I was 8 years old and I'm 33 now. The Dino Sparkers were $9.99 and the Deluxes were $14.99. Here is a portion of the email I sent to El Duque this morning about how I was unable to purchase them thanks to a manager doing his job!


"Morning,

Sorry for late reply. I jumped the gun with email. I was in the process of checking out and cashier had just put in price manually when manager walked by. I wasn't able to get figures and they were pulled out of aisle. This was the Toys R Us in East Moline, Illinois. The deluxes would have been $14.99 each. Man are they tiny! I'll just have to wait for launch..."

The official Transformers Facebook page has revealed a whole set of previously unseen Transformers: Age of Extiction smaller toys. Well. We say unseen, but in fact, most of these new characters are repaints of pre-existing molds, spanning from Beast Wars to Energon to the 2007 live action movie and Transformers: Prime and Beast Hunters! The sets include: Bumblebee vs. Decepticon Stinger with Strafe Set, with Bumblebee being a repaint of 2007 Legends Class Bumblebee, and Stinger a repaint of Legion Class Prime Knock-Out; Legion class and Scout class Optimus Prime and Grimlock, repaints of the Revenge of the Fallen Legends Optimus Prime and Energon Doomlock; Legion class Grimlock, a repaint of Legion Beast Hunters Rippersnapper; Legion class and Scout class Dinobot Slug and Stinger, a repaint of Beast Wars Neo Guiledart and Prime Knock Out; Legion class and Scout class Strafe and Bumblebee, featuring a blue Beast Wars Terrorsaur and the 2007 Legends Bumblebee. These will apparently be figures exclusive to Wal*Mart - will you be hunting them down? Let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub!

To quote ScottyP from the staff email, "They are waaaay outta left field."

I might get the Beast Era characters just so I can say I own at least one version of those molds. I've no need for Grim/Cruellock, since I already own the original.

Re: Transformers: Age Of Extinction Constructbots Dinofire Grimlock Official Images (1571716)
Posted by JelZe GoldRabbit on May 6th, 2014 @ 1:50pm CDT
Ok, so in a nutshell:

Bumblebee with Dinobot Strafe: RotF Legends Bumblebee and BW Terrorsaur.
Decepticon Stinger with Dinobot Slug: RotF Legends Sideways and BWNeo Guiledart
Optimus Prime with Grimlock: RotF Legends Optimus Prime and Energon Cruel-Lock
Legion Grimlock: Prime Beast Hunters Predacon Rippersnapper (again?)
Dinobot Strafe with Bumblebee and Decepticon Stinger: AoE Dinobot Strafe, RotF Legion Bumblebee and Prime Legion Knockout.

Good grief, so random... Definitely aiming for the first four sets.

*EDIT* I can't keep those Legion molds apart... :BANG_HEAD:

Basically, everyone buy the crap out of the BW mold packs so they'll make more of them :lol:

Geniosity, right here. I'd totally be down for a reuse of the Dinobot mold as a separate character, since I already have the Universe (2008) mold.

I'm surprised there aren't any complaints of these being "cheeky, lazy redecoes with jacked up prices". >:oP

That's just... what. Like they wanted to do Cyberverse, but didn't want to invest in any new molds so just went with "good enough." I want to hate it on principle (I loved Cyberverse), but the Dinobots are so ludicrous they're awesome.

Though Grimlock out of Rippersnapper makes me sad Divebomb never got released here...

Posted by craggy on May 6th, 2014 @ 2:25pm CDT
well, I'd rather we'd got Hun-Grr, Cutthroat Windrazor or SinnerTwinStrike instead of another Rippersnapper, but I'm not sure I can avoid getting him with his Irn Bru Chew goodness.

Also a little sad they didn't just give us Killer Punch, but I'm still up for more Purplesaur actions.

This version of the Terrorsaur mold is Thundersaur, which makes Lazorbeak into Terrorwarp, right? Dino Seekers, baby!

Wow. I bet they sell really well. I mean, they didn't even try. They just took a bunch of still functioning molds, slapped some different paint apps on them and thrust their greedy hands forward. Pathetic.


More Christmas closeout fodder.


I will say this, however, it is good for anyone who collected these lines in the past. They can get some new figures for their collections. But no one is going to use them as actual AOE figures. I personally have all of the Prime Cyberverse stuff, so I will pick up "Grimlock" Rippersnapper for my collection just cause. If not for that I wouldn't give them a second glance at retail.

This is actually a benefit of shoehorning old molds in movie years. They did it with ROTF and appear to be going back to it with these. At least I will pick up one AOE figure.
