Can anyone who owns Dispensor check to see if the smaller "antennas" on the sides of his head are the same height? The one on HIS left looks like it was cut a little shorter than the one on his right side. I have an extra one but I don't want to open it just to verify something like this.

No pics, but I held them side-by-side at TRU today. Two differences were apparent:

2-pack version has some extra black paint apps.
2-pack version has a gray (unpainted) T-Rex head instead of the silver on the standard version.

I also found the KRE-O Grimlock Unleashed Set. This is the one where Grimlock is his G1 dino mode only and comes with Kreon Optimus, Bumblebee, Galvatron and Lockdown plus the bonus G1 Grimlock Kreon with crown. It was $24.99 at TRU in Winston-Salem, NC. I'll try to get pictures later.

Chuck's Reviews Transformers Age of Extinction Silver Knight Optimus Prime and Grimlock

This is the first set I've gotten from the Target exclusive Age of Extinction line. Both Grimlock and Optimus Prime are decked out in nice shinny chrome, especially Prime who is practically covered in Silver. Grimlock features the same accessories from the FOC figure while Prime comes with a G1 Predacon sword. I highly recommend this set especially if you missed out on getting either of these figures.

Once again, fellow Seibertron.com user chuckdawg1999 brings us a video review of Transformers figures, and this time it's the turn of the Target exclusive Age of Extinction Silver Knight Optimus Prime and Grimlock! Check out the chrometastic redecos of Dark of the Moon Deluxe Optimus Prime and Fall of Cybertron Voyager Grimlock, including a G1 Predacon sword, in the embedded video below - and make sure to flag these up in the Sightings section and forums if you come across them!

The Optimus is sort of meh. Could have used some reds and blues instead of that sickly whitish gray plastic. The Grimlock, on the other hand, is gorgeous IMO. This will become my new Neo G1 Grimmy. Great review, Chuck!

AoE Dinobot Slug Mold Running Change

Postby Autobot032 » Thu Jun 05, 2014 1:00 am

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
A running change on a figure is not uncommon, especially figures with very pointy edges, such as Dark Of The Moon Crankcase with his "middle finger" claw, which was then trimmed for what appears to be safety's sake. It's become apparent that Age Of Extinction is the next toy line to have this factory modification happen, and this time? It's Dinobot Slug's horns.

Seibertron took some pictures of a wave 1 figure, which was used to create Slug's gallery over here, and compared it with a wave 2 packaged figure and it showed a very noticeable change in which the horns are now rounded with very soft looking edges.

Seibertron included the packaging code in the picture below, and the number is 40941. The wave 1 packaging carries the following number: 40551. I've included that image from my personal collection. Fortunately, the codes aren't exactly necessary as the different horn tips are easily seen through the packaging bubble.

Without further ado, the images:

Man, it's such a small difference it took me a few seconds to actually notice it. Personally, I think I might prefer the rounded horns. The "chopped" ones to kind of look like someone came along and cut the tips off all of Slag/Slug's horns. I wonder if that's exactly what happened. Maybe he originally had pointy horns, but the saw it as a safety concern and caught it in the factory before the 1st wave shipped. If you look at the official images on the box, they do look pointier than either versions.

Soft rubbery plastic, rounded tips. If a child can't be trusted not to blind themselves with a toy perhaps they're too young to have it. Give them a ball or soft teddy instead.

I picked up all of these guys on Saturday. I think I sent in an email report, but maybe I didn't, because I know I would have included a reference picture and I didn't see it on my host. Anyway, yeah, AOE wave 2 voyagers are in and so are the two-packs. As I mentioned previously, the 2-pack Grimlock has a better deco IMO, although it's not really a deal. Wave 2 deluxes had not shown up last I looked, but now I will have to poke around.

My mini-reviews of the new Deluxe figures:

Drift is really cool. Simple, classic car transformation combined with tight joints and good poseability. Has a "real" car chest; no fakery. Head sculpt is unique and cool. All four swords stow away in car mode. I like how the doors fold back to form armor for his upper arms. The only nits I have to pick are the lack of rotating wrists and limited ankle movement.

Strafe is awesome. I was confused at first because he's packaged with his upper body in bot mode and legs in beast mode. Most impressive is that he has a huge wingspan, but the wings fold up nicely behind his back in bot mode. You can give the bot mode a lot of different looks by playing around with the wings. I also love the silver paint on the wings. Posing him in beast mode is tricky, but that's always the case with bird-like alt modes. The ability to bend the wings so he sort of walks on all-fours is cool.

Slash is... exactly what I thought he would be. A cool-LOOKING beast mode and a crummy bot mode. I say cool-LOOKING best mode because it has little articulation aside from the lower jaw opening. There's not much you can do in terms of posing it, so it's play value is limited. I'm not sure how I feel about the big rubbery tail. And the bot mode, well, let's just say he's staying in beast mode. I can't think of anything positive to say about the bot mode. I mostly bought it because I plan on buying all the dinobots, and at least he'll look cool in dino mode when displayed among the rest of the dinobots. At least his colors are cool.

If we could "Like" a posting on this site, I would have done so for your response, Sir. You hit it right on the head. :APPLAUSE:

Just IMAGINE all the little tikes waiting in emergency rooms all over the country with Dinobot Slugs stuck in their faces if they hadn't made this running change! Oh, the horror! :lol:

I know, right? The Construct Bot sets come with hard, pointy swords that one would think are clearly deadlier than Slug's tiny horns. Wtf?

I think it also has something to with those parts being likely to break off, then be swallowed by little tikes. >:oP

Looking at mine, I'm not sure it's "chopped" - there aren't any of the stress or cut marks I noticed when Crankcase was available. That said, I do like the rounded horns better, and will definitely be looking out to replace the Slug I have.

Hi guys,

Haven't been on the boards in a while so I probably missed this info, but is this Silver Knight Optimus thing Target is doing actually something from the film or is it just an excuse for a variant?

Feel free to PM if there are AoE spoilers involved.
