    are we ever gonna see the rest of the line up? like a scout class swoop, voyager sludge, and deluxe slag and snarl?

    my grimstone and grimlock can only hold so much presence on my shelf.

    and for that matter why not g1 classics predacons?

    I'd be happy with a repainted Energon Swoop.

    This.

    In G1 colors please.

    I wonder why that mold hasn't been exploited just as yet. :sly2:

    No they weren't. The other set of minicons was. My Dinobots are still in my preorders at BBTS

    Speaking of that set, Energon Grimlock is a better Classics Grimlock than the actual Classics Grimlock. He's bigger, and he looks more like the old boy.

    I had the energon dinobots until recently, I have to say the grimlock was impressive, but a little too short for my liking. As for the swoop, I was really all that impressed. the alt-mode for a start was messed up, and the arms didn't lock in place when in robot mode. although it did look nice in robot mode.

    I use animated swoop and masterpiece grimlock as my classics. Fingers crossed for the rest in voyager class soon.

    My classics dinobots are: Classics Grimlock, Animated Swoop and Slag (the toy was named Snarl), Custom Cybertron Landmine (see link in signature) as Snarl, PowerCore Grimstone... and I still wait for a worthy Sludge...

    Not unless it's in scale with Hybrid Style Convoy. If it is, then it would be on the small side.

    I'd love to see some Classics-styled Dinobots--and a better Grimlock (even though I liked the one we got). I also gave up waiting for them and decided to articulate and heavy mod my G1 Dinobots instead. Going for a "mini-MP" style with them. So far, I've worked on Grimlock, Slag, Swoop, & Sludge.

    While the Classics line as a whole is pretty darn good, Classics Grimlock's robot mode is pure ass

    I know we need to "update" our updates right? So highly unlikely we will see the whole Dinobot team again.

    I'd really like to see them all released as g1 style legends.

    We are getting powerglide in the cybercerse stuff, maybe they'll throw in a bunch of homage figures in the cyberverse line. I doubt making some g1 dinobots would be very hard.

    Smaller size should mean that the figures are cheaper to design and produce, so maybe they'll just load tons of characters in there.

    A hybrid style Snarl would be in scale with Classics Grimlock.

    Actually he's a perfectly accurate update figure, of the inner robot of pretender Grimlock. Classics Grimlock is the Lieutenant commander Grimlock given a new form, not the Dinobot Commander.
