Greetings fellow Seibertronians!

Fellow Seibertronian Dominus Prime has alerted that youtube reviewer Ton Ton Reviews has once again managed to get their hands on an upcoming figure, this time Studio Series 86 Slag. Although the Leader class Dinobot has yet to be officially revealed by Hasbro, some early images of the figure have been circulating for a few weeks. Check out the video below!



Hoping Hasbro is going to give all the Dinobots Leader class toys? Mostly excited for the included Daniel figurine? Let us know in the comments below!

Hm? Oh yeah, yeah. Real excited for the Daniel mini-figure, very excited indeed. /sarc

Who all here would rather they broomed the mini-figures and gave the dinobots their "Energo" swords?

Of course I'd rather have the swords, but only Snarl had one on the show to say nothing of the movie.

I said this same thing...
At least a couple different flame (“blast”) effects could’ve been made instead of the Wheelie or Daniel figures.
Not to mention, between the 5 Dinobots (assuming they are all getting made), could’ve shared at least a few of them, even if they weren’t repainted.
Not that it costs that much, but the pegs on the Dinobots dinosaur torsos & shoulders could’ve been omitted.
The more I’ve thought about it, the more I would’ve been in favor of this option over swords...
Leave the sword game to 3P.

I hope Hastak is starting to realize that people don’t want “cute, little gimmicks” that are half-a$$ed...
We either want something done well, or something different all-together that is done well.

That's true, he was known for his flame breath. Would have probably cost Hasbro less than an extra fig and be something the fans actually would have appreciated.

Just crank out a few more of the Jefire blast effect parts, save on the tooling

Considering this will probably sell well, I doubt they'll learn anything, and Transformers has always had gimmicks *shrug*

I wouldn't really classify the minifigures as "Gimmicks", they're really just filler. Maybe if they had actual articulation or were more than an accessory for one pose they could be good. They don't even have to be able to transform, they just need to stand neutrally.

This! I wouldn't mind the little Wheelie if he wasn't stuck bow-legged like he just rode a horse for ten miles or something.

Whether someone wants to call it "filler" or a "gimmick"...
The point is it's nearly worthless.

And I guarantee these leader class Dinobots are going make Hastak money. No doubt.
But it has nothing to do with these pack-in figures.
And Hastak knows this.
No one there proposed, "Think of all the fans and collectors who have been waiting to start or add to their collection of sitting figures!!! You're welcome, fans!! You're welcome, collectors!!".
But no, they're not "learning" anything from using $2 worth of plastic to help justify a $50 price tag.

I would still pay $50 for these Dinobots... That's not the issue. But trying to justify that cost by throwing in a worthless little hunk of plastic is basically a slap in the face and a kick in the crotch...
Again, I say make it legit, or don't make it.

Wheelie and Daniel may as well not exist. I kinda get what they wanted to go for there. But. A figure like that just isn't even worth making.

I'm holding out hope that they'll do Toy versions of the Dinobots. I missed Grimlock my two chances, and Slug does not appeal to me. So I'm gamblin' big. They could use the budgets of the excluded minifigures on paint, swords, or just generally making it easier to produce. The Dinobots sell well, so doing Toy decos as Selects / exclusives isn't exactly a risk.

The only Cartoon deco that I like is Swoop, so I'll probably end up with him.

No I get it as well... They are nods to the ‘86 movie...
But honestly instead of those figures, make forearm covers for Grimlock, and fill-out Slag’s dino horns!
There probably still would’ve been enough budget after that to throw in a couple blast effects.
And if they’re not new sculpts, fine. Make them out of translucent Orange & call it good.
But yeah, those little figures are literally a waste of plastic.

I had this same thought... Toy deco’s are definitely possible...
I’ve also thought that it may be even more of a possibility that we get these new Dinobots in G2 colors.
I would think toy versions would sell better. And if they’re from Gen Selects, I wouldn’t call that a risk at all.

Gnaw is looking good
Not sure if I want him to go with my alicon or if I should save my wallet some pain and stick with alicon

Also he said it! Confirmed! Something along the lines of "gnaw didn't have the gun in the movie but we wanted to make sure he had it"

Swoop better come with 5 swords lol

I'm quite surprised at how little was actually announced here, I was hoping for a first look at Jolt and Grindor, but surely they can't be too far off seeing as they're supposedly in the same wave as the three 1986 figures. I'm definitely getting Slug, but the other two I'll more than likely skip.

Considering Swoop is rumoured to come in at the Voyager price point, be prepared to be looking at other options for the swords.

I'm also guessing with the gun thing that it was just to ensure no plastic wastage.

I'm the opposite, I'm hoping there's Toy Dinobots on the horizon (at least for the ones with major differences) so I skipped Slug and preordered the other two weirdos.
As for Jolt / Grindor, I'm really surprised as well! I was really hoping for Jolt at least, I've always been fond of him and would love to see him.

I found it weird that they actually acknowledged the leaks and made multiple offhand hints to future figures. Perceptor's comment was so weird that I was expecting a sneak peek at him. Also by the sounds of things, he may retain the artillery mode.

Now that listings are up on pulse, we have examples of what the $USD price hikes will be going forward. Deluxes seem to still be $23, Voyagers are $31.50, and leaders are now $53.
