Remember way back in 2009 when third party toy maker JustiToys teased us with the prospect of Dinobots in hybrid style? We haven't heard anything since and most assumed the idea had been scrapped, but JustiToys recently updated their website with another teaser image. The 2009 teaser image featured the silhouette of Dinobot Snarl standing next to the silhouette of THS-02 Convoy. The new teaser features concept sketches of Snarl labeled "Project 2011". Are the Hybrid Style Dinobots back on the table?

I'm conflicted about this. I want more Dinobots, but Slag(?) looks like he tops out at 6" tall max considering H.S. Convoy is just over 4". I'm not against Deluxe size Dinobots, but I will have to see the price

EDIT: did some rudimentary calculations by measuring the silhouettes on screen, and scaling them up to real size proportionally, and came up with the dinobot coming out to around 5.6 inches tall

I could care less about Hybrid Style, but if he works with Classics Grimlock, I'm all over it!

If its close to Deluxe size (hopefully larger) I'll grab them in a heartbeat.

A couple things to consider when noting scale in that pic:

1) It's a 3d shillouette of Snarl vs a 2D image of Prime
2) Snarl has one leg bent.

In other words it's still too early to really say how large it is.

He is going to be the size of most deluxe size figures. the picture shows him to be about 2 inches taller than Prime, and as stated earlier in the thread, THS-02 Convoy is about 4 - 4.5 inches tall. :grin:

Oh heck yeah, I am so sold on this. Snarl was my only Dinobot growing up and I can't wait for this little guy.

I have a ths-02 Prime but not at hand unfortunately. However, if my memory is correct, the shillouette of ths-02 Prime is 1:1 in scale. He was really small, hehe.

I'll wait to see the price and quality... but that said there will definitely be some form of updated dinobots in the next two years. Theres not too many glaring holes in the classics, and the dinobots are a perfect target for FP or another group, since once you get one and its good... they have people hooked for the whole team of them.

Either way, I am excited to see how they materialize when they finally do. Until then I wait patiently

Hybrid style means ultra-poseable, and super-detailed. I would have to suppose it's a hybrid of the G1 toy, and what you see on the cartoon and in media that they can do.

I am happy to know this is still happening. I hope we at least get Snarl before they can it.

Hybrid Style was a super posable version of Galaxy Force Prime and G1 Prime. They were pretty good. You can see a pic here, it is circled in red.

Mixed feelings about this. I'm very happy that a company is finally giving the other Dinobots some love, but I've just replaced my Classics Grimlock with his Masterpiece-self so anything smaller than a voyager is unlikely to strike a chord with me.

One of my biggest TF dreams is to get an updated Snarl!

He's my favorite Dinobot figure.

I was just thinking that I hope some third party ends up making Classics-style Dinobots. This will do just as nicely unless FansProject makes Dinobots to go with their Insecticons or TFClub makes Dinobots to go with their Constructicons. If they include a hybrid Grimlock I'm so there, because I wasn't particularly impressed with Classics Grimlock's robot mode.

Not EVERY cool TF ever made is incredibly expensive. Some can be bought for a mere $10.

Unless their remolding them to make the Geisters of Brave Exkaiser (Which I hope they do), then I'll probably just get Grimlock. :-?
