    With all of the greatness to be announced/released by 3rd party companies, I think it is time for a good version of the Dinobots. As happy as I am about Insecticons, it is also a sin to get the Insecticons before the Dinobots.

    Who made those other Dinobots? I know they were a little small.

    I'm not expecting it, but I sort of hope Fansproject does the rest of the Dynobots like that Heartmaster not-Grimlock.

    Here lately, I'm less into that which HASBRO does and more into what the 3rd parties are doing.

    Heck, I think I might hock most of my stuff to pay off a credit card; then I'll consider some of this wickedly cool stuff I've been seeing of late.

    I'd rather see some original designs... Dinobots reimagined as other animals... Grimlock as a crocodile or something...

    The only Dinobot rumour out there is from JUSTITOYS.

    There was a picture of either Slag or Snarl and it said MP on it.

    Take it for what you will because its all the info we got and it is pretty old news.

    Yer, would love me some dinobots, just as long as they were big, I don't want no reflector/PE casette sized dinos.

    Quite frankly I like the basic design of the g1 dinobots, just make that in a bigger scale with some added joints for poseability, remove some kibble from slag and we're there

    I would agree that it would be very cool to see someone like Fans Projects to do the rest of the Classics Dinobots.

    Well in a perfect world, 3rd party dinobots, voyager scale each of them, with a combined mode to go against 3rd party predaking of the same scale. But that is in a perfect world.

    I hope hasbro beats 3rd party co's to the punch. I got nothing against them, but I'd rather pay 10-15 bucks for a deluxe than 60-80.

    You and me both but with the Movie and Prime it is going to be a looooooong time before they do. And if they go the way of Classics Grinlock they are better off not doing them at all.

    Awww DL Blaster was pretty real...I'm sure I'd go as crazy over a G1-Boombox version with good articulation, but DL was a good scale, held tapes, and looked the part. But I'm a Microchange nut, so I love "working" altmodes....

    Dinobot wise...I'd be game, I'm working on my own Voyager ones, but the project has a logn way to go, I'd be happy to just buy 'em for 2-300 each :lol 

    And yeah, Seekers between the short'ish Classics and the too-big MPs would be WONDERFUL...

    Not that I want to recreate my airforce AGAIN!

    In fairness all design cues point to him being INTENDED as Pretender Grimlock...which he does a great job of representing.
