Meh. I don't need my Dinobots to combine. I would rather see better robot and dino mold without having to sacrifice for the combiner functions.

So the tails have to be removed and set aside? That's disappointing, and makes these figures less attractive.

They are Waaaaay to small......They need to be upsized to at least the size the Hercules toys are at. I mean wtf?? Making merge groups so small is just dumb. It looks cool, but if there scout sized with a deluxe Grimlock, whats the point??? It wont sell very well.

Combined mode is looking pretty crappy and you have to remove the tails for robot mode.

gtfo of here. >:oP

Here's hoping for FOC figures.

(Hey, one can dream, right?)

EDIT: wrong acronym..

Swoop and Slag look good, Grimlock is mediocre, and as for Snarl and Sludge, scrap no! Neither of them are toy/cartoon-accurate enough for me. I get that they need to diverge a little so they don't have Hasbro on their afts, but I don'y like em'.

Not bad, but really awe-inspiring. Sacrifices to combine or not, unless Hasbro goes all out with FOC, this is probably going to be the closest to a decent dinobot team we're going to see in a while.

I don't mind the removable tales as a design choice all that much. It's clear they already mount on the combiner, so I'm hoping they either mount somewhere on the individual bots or can be wielded as shields. Another point of concern is the combiner feet apparently only having a peg to secure them.

My only real gripe is they stuck to the 5 bot style. Giving "the leader" body duty makes him suffer the most in scale and design. After the excellence (and hugeness) of Hercules, I would have preferred a 6th extra thing able to store the feet and become the waist so this guy could really measure up to Herc.

Speaking of which, this IS TFC, so why aren't there comparisons to Hercules?

I don't think I am going to be buying these guys. I don't think they look all that great so far and they are going to be silly-expensive.

Although, I think if they hook up a nice paint scheme my opinion might change.

I can't even tell which is Sludge or Slag from the robot mode. I'd buy them at Hasbro prices but not third party prices.

IDK, like the TFClub Devy, I'm just not feeling this. Maybe it's because having them as a combiner instead of individual bots forces their bot modes to be generic. I think the concept is nice, but I think I'd rather go for solo Dino's. Still, there is a market for this, but its just not for me.

with all the effort into making dino combiners youd think someone would make an upgrade for classics devy as there are literally thousands of them out there whether theyre energon or the classics release.
now im starting to get combiner fatigue :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

are they planning on just keeping grimlocks head as the combiner head? kinda throws off the proportions. combined mode looks pretty good albeit kinda small(compared to herc). individual forms dont look good enough to buy it just to keep them in individual form. its still a prototype so heres hopin they can make some adjustments :-?

I like that they combine.Feel that the combiner head is a bit small. Some complain but i like some changes here and there.Besides as others said you could just not combine them. I would like to see modern/classic take on the Stunticons and Menosor. Maybe Motormasters's trailer into a weapon station and then transform into the main body.
