    With the explosion of dinobots we have seen recently, it's time to put them all in one place, and choose!

    FP, if the price is around $100-ish.

    I predict FP wins by a mile. Not my choice personally though.

    ok, well I voted for FT as I know 100% I am getting those, and the rest, mainly there is no price and final offering yet, thus I couldnt vote for any other ones yet.

    That said, I am keeping my eyes on the FP and Planet X, depending on price and which one(s) I like to get.

    Fans Toys and Planet X.

    If Takara were to make new Masterpiece Dinobots I would probably take a look at them as well.

    I'll get 2 sets. MP scaled and TW Orion scaled. Mix and match depending on size and looks.

    Is Toyworld still going through with theirs?

    I'm all in on FT for MP style Dino's. But, I would additionally get Giga Sludge if its good and I have the extra cash. If Takara makes/remakes any MP Dino's they are definite buys. I would also consider FP Sludge and Swoop or possibly Planet X Sludge and Swoop to go with FOC Grimlock as a trio.

    But really, aside from completing FT Dibots, I just want to get reissued G1 Dinos from Takara. (pipe dream, I know)

    3P MP is not my style and it's not a MP if it's not official IMO so those are all out.

    Hasbro's CHUG attempt to date (FOC Grimlock) is a hollow cheap POS and I absolutely hate it.

    Planet X is a bit too small for the price imo and I'm a little on the fence when it comes to FOC designs... I kind of hate them and that hate is only growing.

    I've already bought the Starcats Dino set (TFC designed). It's got a great price (roughly $15 per bot after shipping) but they're not by any means my "Dinobots". They just don't scratch that itch and that makes sense as they clearly quite a bit different in design and purpose.

    I've gotten a full set, to date, of AOE Dinobots but that still leaves a hole in my Classics shelf and they sure as hell aren't going there.

    So basically it's FP for me. I like the look and FP has proven to me time and time again that they can put out quality product so pending Hasbro's future efforts this is the Classics set of Dinobots for me.

    EDIT: Elaborated a bit more.

    I'm getting the FansToys, although I hope to get the Gigapower Sludge^^

    I have the Hasbro Bayformers as well, mostly because I love the knight theme and the color palettes, but I've got them as original/new characters instead of the traditional Dinos.

    The AoE Dino's and TFC dinos, cos I already have them, and I will very likely, probably, get the FP ones too.

    So far I only like the looks on the FP and Gigapower dinos. I do like the dino mode on the ProjectX FOC Sludge.

    Well, I already have the Hasbro MP Grimlock, the TFC combiner and the Hasbro Classics. I'll be getting FansProject, Bullsfire and Mechaform.

    Plus I have the KO/Scramble City Dinobot Combiner.

    I'm all in on the ft dinos, but I'll try to squeeze the fp bots in somewhere if the price is right.

    I just recently received my TFC set. For the price, how could I not? Once I give them some paint, they'll be good enough for me - even if the designs are more of homages than of intentionally being the Dinobots proper.

    If money wasn't a factor (and it is), I would totally go for the FansProject versions - especially after seeing that new pic of "Sludge".

    I have Hasbro's and Takara's CHUGS, but I'm not counting them for the poll. They aren't even complete sets, just Grimlock.

    I don't collect MPs, so that elemenates about half the options. TFCs might have been an option when they first showed them, but they just aren't G1 enough for me.

    I like how G1 Mechaform is. But, they're too new and we haven't seen anything on the robot mode. I have Planet X Swoop and I like him, but the FoC designes are what I was going to settle on in leiu of what i actually wanted - a more G1 take on Classics Dinobots. And, with FP's track record, they're my first choice. Mechaform may get a grab from me too if they aren't too pricy and look good.
