Having a helicopter version of Drift makes so much sense.

I mean really, why not? We've hardly seen him in any of the footage we've seen, but we've seen that awesome shot of Crosshairs and his parachuting skills.

Parachutes operate in the sky ... helicopters operate in the sky ... totally makes sense to use Drift.

Skyhammer was the only figure I bought from the DotM line and as bad@$$ as he looked originally the blue just doesnt do it. Sludge (cant bring myself to call him Slog) had a lot of potential and I am sure I will pick him up to add to my ever growing dinobot collection but the bot mode is just... meh >:oP

Drift as DOTM Skyhammer?


What the hell? I mean, I knew Hasbro was getting cheap on us, but slapping a coat of paint on some random mold and calling it something it is not is pretty low.


On the other hand, Sludge is AWESOME. Definitely picking it up.

:BOOM:

That silver OP looks terrible.
I'm really betting parents are going to be looking at this figure like "WTF, it's a white optimus. Fuck this kid, you're not getting a $60.00 repaint!"

Drift looks... okay.
Slog looks awesome.

AHEM....Uh Earth to Hasbro...Um why in the hell did Slog get the proper silvery grey treatment and Galvatron did not? I guess it would have been too much to ask for right. I mean sheesh...only 1 of 7 dinobots is the proper coloring and who knows if Slog is even in the movie. What's that Hasbro... @#$% Me? Speak any English? @#$% You! That is all I have to say about that. =;

I picked up Voyager Grimmy yesterday because he looks better in person than in pics. I like him better than I thought I would based on pics and video reviews, but he's still inferior to Scorn, IMO. The most disappointing aspect of the figure is the lack of articulation in the bot mode, especially compared to his Voyager-companion, EM OP.

All-in-all, it's a decent figure. And I plan on buying more Dinobots, so I figured I can't have all the other Dinobots and NOT Grimlock.

I'm sharing everyone's sentiment that Platinum Silver Knight Optimus Prime looks... bland, but not unpainted. It does have paint (less than it should) but the main culprit is lack of variety in plastic colors: only two are used, and one is only visible in robot mode. Also, Hasbro, silver grey does not equal real silver. I understand your apprehension of paint or chrome overdose (make no mistake, it can get costly), but the figure just looks half-baked here. >:oP

Skyhammer as Drift is one of the rare Hasbro curve balls, but it's not a good one. I do love the Skyhammer mold, and I appreciate the new sword, but... That mold just isn't Drift.

Slog/Sludge is a Brachiosaurid now, and it's a good change for him, taller rather than long. I know, Brachios are the new Brontos :P I'll be getting him regardless.

Hasbro said it made each dnio different colors for the children so they can differentiate between the different dinos. Makes sense, as these are children's toys.

I feel the same way. I don't really like Grimlock's dragon look, but I think I will pick it up anyhow, because as you said, can't have the six and miss the seventh.

Makes sense, tho my wife thinks it's a silly ideas when I asked her opinion on it. Guess that's where we agree to disagree :lol:

So far we have:

Grimlock: gold
Swoop/Strafe: blue
Slag/Slug: purple
Scorn: red
Slash: turqoise
Snarl: green
Sludge/Slog: grey

We almost have a rainbow here :lol:

And almost have Dino Knights/Dinosoldiers too.

Just swap out the Spinosaurus and Raptor for a Saber-Toothed Tiger and a Mammoth. :-B

I know Hasbro changed the colors on purpose. If you look at my comment more closely I was centering on the fact that Slog is the color we should have gotten on Galvatron. That was the point. What would happen in a perfect world would be a complete G1 homage set of 7 Dinobots showing up in a Costco gift pack at Christmas...that would be EPIC!! Also worth whatever they wanted to charge. Knowing Costco...$99.99 for an entire set of 2 Voyager and 5 deluxe G1 themed Dinobots seems fair right?

Drift looks pretty good. Only thing is that holding that one handle on that giant sword looks kinda weird. It looks like two swords combine together and if that is the case I'll put one in each hand.

Slog looks kinda interesting and I want to get all the Dinobots so I'll pick him up, if Hound is John Goodman than Slog is Danny Devitto.

Platinum Optimus is just as easy of a pass as the first edition is.


:MAXIMAL:

Voyager Drift from Dark of the Moon Skyhammer? Talk about unexpected.

I like him a lot, but it just doesn't seem like Drift to me. Drift is a samurai car that is kickass, not a samurai helicopter that is kickass. More like what Windblade looks for in a male. 8-}

Also, better headscuplt FTW!

Oh, you just made me think of an awesome duo for samurai flyers. I might get this helicopter drift afterall. Then again, they are different scales so it wouldnt work out. I have no problem with Drift as a helicopter BUT I do have a HUGE problem with using an existing mold for a character which has a very specific design. There is no samurai esthetic apart from the headsculpt, so what gives!

They do the same thing with the Imaginext dinos, which are a remake of the 80's dino rider line (remember them??)and the Switch and Go dinos. I personally do not get it, because most dinos look different from one another, unless you get into species subcategories, but people in general can remember things when they are color coded better than when they are the same color. I personally would have liked to see them all look similar to Sludge's paint apps, but its ok, because they are all still really cool. Wish I could say the same for the rest of the line, but better than nothing. You can tell most agree with my ideology on this, because if you look at the pegs almost one week out or online giants like Amazon, they are sold out of Scorns and Slags, and yet have plenty of BB's and Crosshairs. Which kinda sucks, because the future waves will have to wade themselves past these two shelfwarmers to make retail. As far as online, either preorder or check Amazon every day until theya re in stock and nab them up before they are gone.

Most of them are, yes, but you are missing out if you do not get the dinos. They are cool!
