New full color images of TFC Toys Dino-combiner have surfaced on ACToys, and it seems they are not going for a G1 aesthetic. However, that should come as no surprise considering the original concept art for these figures didn't feature G1 colors either. The other combiner team in the images is another TFC Toys project based on the Star Cats Rescue Team cartoon, in other words not Transformers related, though they have hinted at a Denfensor-ish repaint of this team. A computer render of the Dino-comber's combined mode head has also been posted. Images mirrored below.

Someone having to hold up the T-Rex bot again... :BANG_HEAD:

The combined head render sucks too IMO.

I've lost all interest in this.

I hope it the combiner aspect gets touched up a little or at least is shown with a proper transformation. I really like the head. Reminds me a bit of an undead, vicious Praetorian-style guardsmen with a lizard's face. Of course, that could be a lotta Dark Souls talking.

If I could buy it at retail, I'd jump. For 3rd party prices it needs to be really affordable for me to buy.

Looks cool, but it's flawed. Not that I could do better, but I'm being a lot pickier about what I buy now.

I'm not sure I'm liking these guys right now. If that's the final paint job, I'll definitely pass.........

With the colour combination on the Dinobots there, they remind me of Zords. Except, you know, with better articulation.

With those colors, Grimlock sorta reminds me of Dino Tyranno from Dinozaurs.

Anyways, like most third party Dinobots I wouldn't really buy them unless they retool them into the Geisters from Exkaiser, mainly that Snarl, as he'd make a really cool Armor Geist.

I'm quite unimpressed with the colours. Incredibly bland. I'm quite partial to chrome on my dinobots. It just plain looks good. The colours they chose for those silly little accents are TERRIBLE. they just look very childish (oh the irony).

I don't know. They could do a lot better. They look especially bland in combined mode as well.

I wouldn't say TFC have dropped the ball on this one, more like inflated it with lead and have never even been able to pick it up. Glad to see something coming that I don't want to purchase.

This just crushed my hopes of dino combiners that I always wanted! Talk about a let down!

I have that Dinozaurs dino tyranno toy,It's a awesome toy in both modes. I was kinda hoping the movie verse or TF Prime dinobots would look a bit like the dinozaurs/dinozone. with fossisized bones detail all over robot & dino alt modes.

NOW TO COMMENT on the colored 3rd party dinobots in this thread. I love the colored versions. I like the fact each dinobot received a unique color,like red or blue or purple or? having a highlight color makes each color seem like a jem or jewel.

I did notice on the bottom of the pics,their appears to be 2 huge pics of a gestalt combiner head accessory piece. if it belongs to the dinobot combiner. then the head design looks really cool & wicked. hopepully this dinobots combiner does get a few more gestalt accessories like a gestalt head. a gestalt chest plate. a few more gestalt weapons like a huge sword & huge gun blaster.

A kings crown accessory pop off/on piece for the gestalt head of the dinobots combiner. would be awesome on so many levels.

I can see people liking the colors, but ... does anyone like them for their Dinobots?

I don't know why it's so hard (even for Hasbro/Takara) to use the EXACT same chrome and plastic color used in the G1 toys. MP Grimmy did it and was better off for it. If these had chrome and nice grey plastic I think a lot of people would be convinced to buy it.

I'm really not feeling these. >:oP

The quality seems low, and I'd prefer the dinobots to be the same height rather than have the combiner gimmick.

i think drone pieces are lazy and they all suck, look at the failed PCC line and any other drone bots. They suck.Keeping them individual and all transforming adds value.

I meant having a sixth dinosaur that breaks apart into the add on pieces. I.E. you take it apart to make the feet, hands, head, etc.

Where me, Grimlock's, hands?

In all honesty I might still pick it up. My big gripe about it is the fact that the Slag character on one side outweighs the Swoop character on the other side. It looks super uneven.

But didn't anyone notice that there seems to be PROTECTOBOTS in that picture?! I mean, Groove doesn't look much like Groove, but C'MON! I want to know more about THAT set!

Those are toys for the Star Cats Rescue Team cartoon, a non-TF related project. They have hinted at a possible Defensor repaint though.

What the eff? Star Cats?! GIMME DEFENSORS!

In reality, though, if they repaint as Defensor, I'm DEFINITELY getting that. He's my favorite combiner.
