I thought MP-8x was the entire reason this got going in the first place. Love the box art.

Thought this was the PCC Dinobots at first. My bad. :lol: Anyway, back to what I was about to say....


Is this an American exclusive, or Asian? If it's going to have an American release, I'm getting these instead of the PCC version. :lol: :lol: :BANG_HEAD:

I believe it will be a TFsource.com exclusive set, I've ordered some stuff from them & they got it to Mississippi in a timely manner. I am considering getting it. But i'm really leaning more towards ordering the special clear/lucky draw style mix packs they have instead.

While I am not denying it looks great, I am a little disappointed with it. It is just the box art for Dark Retrobution in colour. I wanted something new. Anyway, I have too many of those little guys (2 regular sets, all tfsource xmas exclusives and all other exclusives) so I won't be buying it any time soon. I love them but there are other things coming out I would rather buy (Crossfire, Unicron, Primus etc). If there are some still available later, I will probably buy them. Justitoys and Fansproject are the only 3rd parties that deserve my money.

Pass on these, i have 2 of the WST Dinobots and they are pieces of shit that fall apart when you merely look at them funny.

Really, I find them to be fantasticly made (except Swoops launchers don't stay on the wing and Snarl's waist is a little loose). Mine don't fall apart at all. In my opinion, the WST Dinorobots are much better made than the official WST's from Takara.

I'm not exactly sure what this set is. Anyone shed some light on this for me?

It's a set of Dinobots that are barely bigger than a quarter. Super shrunk down G1 molds with color schemes to match the MP-8X King Grimlock, with shinier silver/grey & blue where the black would normally be. That's about all I can say.

Visually they did a fantastic job on this guys given their size but after so many reissues please please please hasbro/takara give us the real thing. Surely all the WST dinos that have sold would have covered the cost of a remold or whatever the supposed problem is.

A reissue of G1 dinobots would be awesome, but WST dinobots are not made by Hasbro/Takara, they are made by Justittoys so Has/Tak has not profited off them. On that note, shouldn't this thread be in the 3rd party/KO section?

Sorry I wasnt clear in my post. I ment to say that the money the wst dinos have make should be able to justify to Hasb/Tak they should redo the orig. But of course if they havent gathered that by listening to fans I dont think they will get it this way either.

Then you should know that the G1 Dinobot molds are rumored to be either broken or lost. That, and Takara doesn't even look at profits other than their own. :)
