    Known about these for a while. Isn't it TFC that's making them?

    Just a note, that these aren't the Dinobots. They're transforming robot dinosaurs, yes, but visually, they're almost nothing like the Dinobots in robot mode, and they're Combiners.

    They're being developed as tie-in merchandise for a Chinese cartoon called "Star Cats".

    Various 3rd Party groups have expressed interest in making proper Dinobots, however.

    I think they look a lot like the dinobots. Even in robot mode.

    Close enough for me, If they to a color scheme that is even fairly close they will be my stand ins.

    Hell that tyrannosaurus looks more like Grimlock then the classics/henkei version.

    We've seen them in colour already. They're all dark grey, with small patches of colour, Power Rangers-style.

    I know, right? What's up with that?

    I mean, from the looks of it, the tails don't even really become anything... just big... shields? Maybe? Kind of a poor choice.

    Still, if these guys come in at mass-market retail-friendly price point (seeing as they're cartoon tie-ins), I'll probably spring for them. They still look sort of cool.

    I meant an additional " Hey these are not dinobots," color scheme. The one I saw was not bad either though.

    I dunno bro, details like these (detachable tails) don't exactly make me feel like buying a toy. I rather having those tails integrated, even becoming kibbles for the bot modes. Well let's hope they show us something more about these guys.

    Bot and dino modes are cool and they kinda resemble many versions of dinobots blended together. :thumbs2:
