Calling it now: people saying "This is a FAIL! Swoop is colored wrong and where's Sludge?!!!!" :lol:

Nice set, and a nicer alternative to getting the TakaraTomy versions.

MRW I see this set:



THIS is an SDCC exclusive in hyperdrive. Definitely up there with last year's Metroplex.

:P

In all seriousness, I can see why they went with the original toy rather than Swoop's cartoon model: his coloration would be too close to the regular retail release of Strafe if the cartoon model was used. I'm actually surprised Sludge/Slog is not included, though. :-?

Finally, sensible chrome. And the way they used translucent plastic is great, too.

wow. just wow. Those dinobots are beautiful...and that playset. wow.

You know, had they just made the actual toys a subdued metal color I would want them. I don't like the bright blue, red and purple really.

These just seem so much better to me even if its bright.

I think this is the first time I've seen AOE Snarl, G1-deco or otherwise. Neat!

Our first look at Snarl, as well as Sludge Spikesaur Slog, can be seen here. ;)

I still say Slog looks more like a Brachiosaurus than a Brontosaurus Apatosaurus. Just saying. >:oP

I really want this set! I don't think I'll have a problem dropping a dime on this Effer.

Time to take back my retail Grimlock, Strafe, & Slug!

Truth be told that I would really like to see Sludge done up in the same paints as this set.

OMG :shock: :shock: :shock: So. Much. Want. Cannot. Contain. Myself. :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay:


This is EPIC...must try to get from hasbrotoyshop.com. This undoubtedly will sell so damn fast...probably faster than Metroplex did. I don't want to have to pay Ebay scalpers $300+ for this set :sad:

Grimlock: Me King. Me think Hasbro should get off pompous ass and offer pre-order rather than make fandom wait for shitty site to crash. Fandom good. Hasbro bad. Hasbro when you listen to Fandom? :BOT:

While the colors aren't one-hundred percent accurate, I still like these. Honestly, as a suggestion to anybody picking these up, I'd put them in with your IDW/GEN line. Just sayin'.

Nice! And here I thought Slash was replacing Snarl as the 5th dinobot. Glad to see that's not the case.
