    A friend of mine were discussing the new Fall of Cybertron game recently, which we often do when new production art or news comes out, and he had made a comment to me that considering the last 5 promo art pieces were of the dinobots, they must be getting some sweet toys.

    We discussed it, and then this topic came up.

    If you could choose between the following, which would you rather see Hasbro make?:

    -2 Leader class Dinobots. Detailed, Weapon accessories, and a few voice clips from the voice actors.

    -5 Deluxe class Dinobots. Moderate detail, no accessories, and basically an average looking FOC Deluxe, but including the other two dinobots.

    I...honestly couldn't think of an answer right away. I love all of the new designs, and each is special to me, but as far as toys go, Dinobots are all about size, so a leader, or even voyager, would be nice.

    Voyager Ani. Grimlock is one of my favorites since he's actually pretty big, but then compare to Classics Grimlock, who is pretty small for a Grimlock. Which makes me lean to Leader class.

    But just the pure nostalgia, and the sight of all 5 dinobots together again on your shelf, it's hard to pass up. One of the best things about the Dinobots is that even if only one of their modes looks decent, they can still pose well with each other, the dinosaur modes have just as much fandom as the robot modes, and just being able to own the set, it'd be great.

    Still undecided though, so, thought I'd post a poll to see what the consensus on this would be.

    This might be blasphemy to some (for those who LOVE scale) but I think I would prefer maybe having 3 of them deluxes and 2 of the voyagers. My reason for this is money. If I had unlimited income, i'd say go all voyager or leader. But having a few of them deluxes just makes it easier for me to have em all!

    I could see that working out as well, Animated did a pretty good job of keeping the Dinobots in scale with each other, along with keeping them in different size classes.

    Probably would look like this though:

    Voyager
    Grimlock
    Sludge

    Deluxe
    Snarl
    Slug
    Swoop

    5 > 2

    Personally, I'd like to have them loosely in scale based on dino-modes (i.e. Deluxe Swoop, Leader Sludge, the rest Voyager; or all that knocked down one class), but all-Deluxes are cool, too. Heck I'd gladly take them if they were just Legends, as long as all five were there.

    Why can't we get 5 Leader Dinobots? I'd actually buy all 5 deluxes and then the Leader Grimlock as well.

    So does somebody want to argue that lack of Leader class (so far) toys in Prime has no bearing on FOC Leader toys?

    I dunno, maybe somebody can persuade me that Hasbro would be raking it in if all five Dinobots were Leader Class toys?

    Neither. I want one Voyager: Grimlock.

    I don't particularly need the others, personally, and I don't need or want voice chips. A nice Voyager Grimlock would look nice next to the new, smaller FoC Deluxes.

    I'm poor so it'd be better for me if they were all the same small size.

    A Voyager Sludge, a very lanky Scout Swoop, a Deluxe Snarl, Slug and Grimlock (large-ish deluxe) would be ideal. If not that I would settle for all Deluxe.

    Neither of those options...though if I had to pick between those two and only those two, I'd take all of them as Deluxes.

    This is.... not a bad idea. I think putting a Voyager class in there would be necessary though.

    I have nothing against the others, but the only one that I really want is Grimlock with a good sword.

    2 voyagers and 3 deluxes. or 2 leaders and 3 voyagers. either way, 2 big ones and 3 small ones. i'd prefer 2 LC and 3 VC because it looks like this next line's deluxes are tiny and a tiny dinobot is an oxymoron

    Leader Sludge
    Voyager Grimlock
    Deluxe Slag and Snarl
    Lanky Scout or deluxe Swoop

    Sludge has to be big though.

    2 Voyager (Grimlock, Sludge) 3 Deluxe (Snarl, Swoop, Slag) works for me. The Autobot team needs something to offset the Combaticons in Bruticus mode, and two voyagers fits the bill (plus Autobots generally outnumber Decepticons in most lines, but just having equal numbers and a couple Dinbots happen to be bigger works).
