    Fall Of Cybertron. Age Of Extinction. The Last Knight. 50 million 3rd party releases. 50 million KO's of Age Of Extinction, The Last Knight & 3rd party releases. SDCC exclusives. Platinum exclusives. Now Power Of The Primes?

    WTF guys? Are you OK? Do you know what taking something a little too far means? Christ, I couldn't wait for today & all the awesome new Hascon reveals but all I saw all day were Dinobots over & over again from every possible angle. You might find this hard to swallow but not all of us are obsessed with Dinobots. Can you please just buy the Dinobots you want & move on & get over it already?

    I'm sorry, but dinosaurs will just never not be cool. Dinosaurs that are robots? Cooler. Dinosaurs that are robots that turn into a bigger robot? Cooler, but probably floppy. Really, I just wish they were Decepticons, Autobots almost always have painfully dull color schemes.

    I know there have been alot of Dinobot options from movie style to platinum G1 style repaints to many 3P options. It's enough to make one's head spin trying to name them all so I can see where you are coming from. However in the 11 years that Classics/Generations have been around, the one thing that we have not had was an official true blocky Classics G1 model update of the other 4 Dinobots. So I think its understandable why some people are excited about these new Dinobots, myself included. At least it seems the Dinobots are hitting in wave 1 and 2 so they are getting through them pretty quick and not drawing them out over a long period of time. :)

    Just buy hte dinobots I want? Why, of course I will! I'll even display the POTP dinobots as Volcanicus.
    As a dinosaur fan and a transformers fan at the same time, dinobots are like the coolest things ever.

    Almost everything you posted is Bayformer shit. The non-Grimlock G1 dinobots haven't gotten new toys in 30+ years.

    We need to get over this strange Optimus fetish. I swear, sometimes it feels like there's at least one in EVERY line!

    This is the first time that we're getting actual updates of all of the G1 Dinobots in the official main line, not just Grimlock. No, those kinda-G1 colored repaints of the ass bayverse toys don't count.

    People have waited for years for new classic dinobots. The movie ones are not the same thing and the 3p offerings tend to be expensive. It's pretty normal that the excitement level is sky high.

    Shit yes I'll buy the Dinobots, probably two of each. And I bought most of the 3rd party ones. And almost all the variations of the movie ones. And whatever others they release in the future.

    I know this was sarcasm but can I please somehow like your post like 300 times?

    Fall of Cybertron only had Grimlock. Age of Exinction was about movieverse Dinobots. The Last Knight only had repaints of AOE Dinobots. Third Party has a decent selection, but many people don't wanna pay $100 per a figure. SDCC exclusives were repaints of AOE Dinobots in G1 colors. The Platinum exclusives were repaints of AOE Dinobots. Power of the Prime Dinobots literally just got revealed today.

    Yes, we're okay. We're a fandom and this is how we normally act. You're the one that's taking it too far by creating a thread to complain about people wanting good representations of the Dinobots and calling it a fetish.

    No, because the Dinobots I want just got revealed today and I can't buy 'em yet.
