    do you think those guys would work? i know we've already got grimlock, and he's okay, but i think these guys would work...their dinomode aesthetic is definitely different from other classics, but its okay since they transform into dinosaurs...i'd leave the dinobot mold of grimlock out, since a velociraptor is only barely similar to a T Rex, but then you could add in the other 5 and have a good dinobots set for classics...whatdya think?

    I hope not. I'd rather have a mechanical looking version of the dinobots.

    I'd prefer if they went mechanical as well. Dinobots were never intended for organic looking. Those BW2nd/Neo molds could be used as nods to those eras though in universe, but not G1 dinobots do they make.

    The more dinobots, the better...but I'd much rather prefer the mechanical looking dinobots.

    They don't fit for me, thay have a more organic look, and the G1 dinobots are supposed ot look mechanical

    That Sludge is kind of a stretch anyways, what is he, a blue-tongued skink?

    Me Grimlock say "no dice".

    i too would prefer all mechanical looking dinobots, but i dont know if we'll get them anytime soon, hence my question...i think organic looking dinobots kinda kick ass, and since i combine all my toys into one collection anyway (except beast wars, they get their own space) i thought of this...i may put them in the collection later to see how it looks...but hopefully we do get new molds eventually...

    The only way it actually makes sense if they were like an energon overload shield, like in Spotlight: Shockwave.

    I always liked the Guiledart/Triceratron mold, but I agree they're not a good match for most classics. Animated Snarl & Swoop come close to fitting in better, despite their aesthetics.

    If your Classics collection has a lot of Maximals & Predacons mixed in, I say go for it. :)

    to each their own man mix and match as you like and see fit its your stuff

    i take that same approach myself when it comes to my weeding through the collection once a month to decide what figures i want to keep from each toyline year toyear line to line wave to wave

    keeping the best set of figures from each line passing the rest on to the kiddes in the family and bashing the ones i keep into being whatever classic g1 character i believe each figure would be best suited to becoming as it were

    Pretty much what's already been said. I'm not a fan. Dinobots are dino looking bots. Those just look dino.

    I have these guys and I'd never think of displaying them with my Classics. It's not because they look organic, though. I leave them out because, triceratops and stegosaurus molds aside, they're all kind of crap.

    they would make good universe dinobots, but it would take some imagination for classics.
