Yeah, they look cool alright, but where did you get the info that hastak would actually ever do toy versions of these guys. Maybe they will, but I really wouldn't hold my breath to wait that. There is a really small change that they will come in 2013 like the voyager class Starscream/seekers, but so far we haven't seen any pictures or got any info. Or have I missed something important? So isn't it a bit early to debate what size they might be (or will be, as some suggets). Don't you think ;)

That Starscream will be a Deluxe, not a Voyager.

Okay...after seeing that robot form of Snarl I am completely sold. He looks uttlerly bad-ass! Can I say that here? And yes @Trikeboy, FOC Onslaught being voyager class would have resolved so much for this newly-designed Bruticus. He just looks so awkward being the centerpiece all flimsy.

It's pure speculation right now. It's what we want to see from Hasbro. I think Grimlock was confirmed, the other 4, nothing so far.

So much awesome!!!!! No way a toy could live up to these designs, no matter what size they are! I cannot wait for this game!

I second that. i.e. Take a look at the FOC Slag..his conversion from Triceratops to robot form in particular. There is virtually no feasible approach in designing him. Unless you have a crapload of snap-on/snap-off pieces like the ever-classic G1 Omega Supreme figure. And how humble of you to say, Get Right..honestly, no future dinobot could live up to your masterpiece custom work.

It's so G1-y in it's Transformation and robot mode.

Just a couple of updates/tweaks to both.

I'd love a toy of this. Sad that it is more likely there will not be a toy, as that there will.

I don't know about that. There are some really talented designers out there. Hasbro/Takara/3rd Party/Customizers. I don't think I've made the end all of Dinobots, but I really appreciate you saying so. :D

I just can't see how these can be translated into great toys. These game designs are what I've imagined for a long time. I love them!

Yay, Snarl! He was my favourite Dinobot in G1.

Lets face it, this is something Hasbro will know. If they don't make toys of the Dinobots, they will get one upped by a 3rd party. To be honest, I would prefer a 3rd party version because they would probably all be voyager sized.

That. Is. Epic beyond words. I'm loving his robot mode right now.
This is how I rate the dinobots
1) Grimlock
2) Snarl
3) Slag
4) Swoop
5) Sludge

Voyager sized 3rd-party versions would cost about $100 each. Maybe that's OK for you, but a lot of us can't afford that. I'd rather have Hasbro Deluxes for $12/each.

Snarl looks awesome! However, has anyone else noticed that while the facebook page names Sludge and Swoop, they don't specifically name Snarl and Slag. I wonder if there will be a name change there considering the word Slag is frowned upon in some places.

The Triceratops' name is Slug.

mmhmm, and it is a stupid name change. I'm Scottish and I don't mind him being called Slag. I can see a problem getting it localised in the uk without it though. I'll call him Slag no matter what they call him.

Depends on where you shop. If you only shop at BigBadToyStore then yes it would cost that much. I shop at Robotkingdom and they are a lot cheaper. I got the Herc components shipped for less than BBTS were offering before shipping. However, I do take the point that they would be more expensive. I would pay for them though.

i can see the transformation just by looking at it. this would easily make a great toy.

Grimlock would be tricky, though, as his body literally morphs in shape during his in-game transformation.

Not saying it won't happen. just that it'll be tricky.

Though, could one remind me of when the confirmation of his toy was given (seriously, I can't remember)? :oops:

I wouldn't tempt fate. We have not even seen a prototype. We've had toys manufactured and packaged, that never got to our stores... So..uhm. Yeah, I wouldn't go counting any eggs.

Now that we've seen all five. I'd say they knocked the Dinobots out of the park.

I know it's been said before, but how is it that the Dinobots even exist on Cybertron in their dinosaur altmodes? Dinosaurs are an Earth species, so if FOC takes places millions of years ago, it wouldn't make sense for them to be anything but Cybertronian animals.

The game's story is set about 65 million years ago. Shockwave has captured five members of the Lightning Strike Coalition for him to experiment on. He uses ancient Space Bridge technology to look at an alien planet (Earth) and sees several powerful looking lifeforms (dinosaurs) on its surface. Inspired, Shockwave uses the designs of these creatures to rebuild his five captives into forms resembling these alien beings, so that Shockwave may then have five uber powerful minions to command. So thus, he creates the Dinobots, hence Grimlock being referred to as a "Space T-Rex".

Not too sure if i'm feelin the red back plates. I know that if they were to be made into an actual figure i would rather see those plates be a translucent gold/champagne (yes, i said champagne) colour. Much like the plastic on Energon Scorponok.
Of course gold chrome would be preferable but that's never gonna happen and it's not the colour scheme the designers chose. fair enough.

Here's an idea Hasbro, if you want to stop 3rd parties make all five Dinobots so the 3rd parties don't have to!

even if we get all of them as toys Hasbro doesn't care about scale
we would be lucky to get anything
that goes all the way back to the early days were you had a city sized transformer
the same size as galvatron or ultra magnus

I can't get over how much I love Snarl. Both modes look fantastic, and this is the first one I can figure out the transformation between both modes because they actually have similarities unlike some of the others. (Snarl mostly).

Can't wait for their big toy reveals at Botcon!

I absolutely love these designs, so much so that I'd actually include them in my Classics collection, and that's no small feat to achieve. I just know that even if Hasbro produce all five Dinobots they won't be in a size I'd be satisfied with.

I like how Sludge looks significantly bigger than the rest of the squad. I'm ashamed to say that I'm rather looking forward to this game now.

I too would love to have toy versions of the Dinobots, especially since I don't have any.

OMG!! If there is anyone left at Hasbro marketing and design departments with half a brain, they better be planning to give us all 5 of these as toys.
I would hope too that they make them in Voyager size, but if they at least make them in deluxe, I will buy all 5. Twice!! =P~
