    No love for Snarl and Sludge :( 

    But ... Hasbro? Toys, yesterday. Thank you.



    edit: Happy day they mention 5 Dinobots woot woot. This is maybe Habsro's way of giving us our beloved Dinobots again.

    Between FOC and Prime, Habsro can potentially wipe my wallet clean.

    edit two. Also found a pic with Snarl's dino mode...all that is left is Sludge. very exciting possibilities with the toys woot woot.

    Apparently, Slag is being referred to as "Slug", going by the screenshot file names.

    Interesting. If that's the case, I'd actually advocate switching Snarl and Sl(u)g around, given Stegosaurs look far more sluggish in appearance.

    These things look awesome! Shame there's only three, instead of five.

    But yeah, Hasbro. Toys, like, now!

    They mention all 5 and if you enlarge the pictures what you will see are 3 bot modes and 4 alt modes.

    Not shown are Snarls bot mode and anything to do with Sludge.

    But why change tradition?

    It would just be seen as 'wrong'.

    Matt says there will be five in the video. The Dinobots are the Autobots version of SEAL team 6, he says. And Grimlock will have speech issues, due to the change in his brain from Shockwave's machinations, but he isn't stupid like the cartoon;) 

    EDIT:

    Anyone able to figure out who the blue character is of to the side of Matt?

    I suspect the reason Sludge isn't seen is because his alt. mode doesn't actually exist as of a few years ago, which means Shockwave can't have researched it during his studies of Earth lifeforms:lol 

    Also, I suspect that even if Slag is renamed to Slug, he's still going to get called "Slag" alot since it is an insult of sorts and Grimlock loves to throw those around:tongue: 

    I will also laugh pretty hard if there ends up being a sixth dinobot named paddles in the game.

    Yes bring on the figures!

    And make sure a few are at least voyagers.

    That is BADASS!! The one thing...the ONLY thing that bugs me about this...is that they're dinosaurs...on Cybertron. How do Cybertronians know what dinosaurs are, let alone adopting forms that are VERY specific Earth dinosaurs?

    Other than that....badass. I love how they all look so far. Grimlock is such a goddamn monster...he needs a toy so goddamn bad!!!
