    I wonder how far ahead Hasbro plans things. Like, were they waiting for their combiner lines before doing Dinobots because they thought a "complete the set" mentality would help sell five similarly-colored toys?

    Get past the Dinobots?! Never. I say, more Dinobots. Sorry, the Dinobots rule and I've loved them since I was a kid.

    This is so true. Most of us have been waiting over a decade for a complete Classics line of Dinobots.
    Also, Classics Grimlock while a good figure for 2006, sorely needs an update now. So I welcome all of this.

    Regarding this complaint, I wonder if those Dinobots:

    1. Sports little cockpit for TR head?
    2. Has any gimmick regarding PoP/TR?
    3. Just plain combiner that can be mix-matched with CW?

    So far, my fave Grimlock figure is the OSKO Warbotron Grimmy. I wish the rest of the team was made like that.

    Otherwise these look decent enough.

    Universe one right? That was 2006 or something I'm pretty sure. 2008-2009 was ROTF I'm pretty sure.

    Part of the excitement is that people could afford the Dinobots.......3rd Party costs about $100 each at the cheapest, while the MP Style cost $200 at best each. I'm happy to pay about $110 total for Hasbro Dinobots (the original 5 plus Slash).

    Very true and I agree. It's likely going to happen because Sunstreaker, unfortunately, got the treatment and it's only time before they do it to his brother.

    You do know that this is the first time that Hasbro have done the original 5 Dinobots since 1985 right?

    Movie repaints DEFINITELY do not count and neither do 3P.

    It is definitely a big occassion because of that.

    Hell, Krok had a new figure come out before Sludge.

    Hasbro are saving Predaking and the other lady robos for NYCC by the sounds of things so that may be more of your cup of tea.
