    I can see it, but there's not much time before the movie and Prime lines for new mold reveals.

    Maybe in 2012 when Classics picks up again after the movie stuff cycles through.

    I hope it happens. We need a new Grimlock too or a downsized masterpiece version.

    There may or may not be some chance of it happening or not happening. I am certain that we will or will not get those dinobot molds sooner or later.

    "Classics" Dinobots is the first sign of the Apocalypse.

    I hope eventually. I'd be really happy with deluxe Snarl, Swoop and Not-Slag. And a Voyager sized Sludge!

    All these posts about Generations ending for the movie line makes me still feel like I'm the only person that was listening when Hasbro said they were running Generations long term, i.e. through the third movie line.

    I honestly dont see it happening. I think we'd see a new classics-style Grimlock before we saw any of the other dinobots. However if they were released, I wouldnt be surprised if we got them animated style where we only get Grimlock and two of the other d'bots.

    Wow, that sounds really pessimistic, but logically they'd have to devote 4-5 spots for just dinobots within a line and if we were only able to get 5-6 seekers over the course of 3 lines over 4 years, then the chances are pretty slim for the dinobots. I think the PCC dinobots are really the closest we'll see to new d'bots anytime soon.

    But hey, I would be perfectly happy if HasTak proved me wrong. I love me some d'bots just as much as the next guy.

    I heard it. But I don't know what's in the first wave of generations that's concurrent with the movie line.

    We don't know exactly what will be happening with generations, maybe it will continue uninterrupted, maybe there will be a short break, maybe it'll be "rebranded" with another line name. What Hasbro said in June of 2009 may or may not be what comes to pass in June of 2010.

    I think we'll see an update of the Insecticons before we get all 5 Dinobots. Maybe a new Swoop and (not)Slag.

    This! Predict we will have another CHUG drought soon which explains this sudden surge of CHUGs in the last couple of months. This actually makes me happy cause it gives me wallet a break.

    Scout Insecticons would really make me happy. I'd troop-build the hell out of them!

    I'm going to put the odds at very very very very low.

    Hasbro just doesn't seem to be on the sub-team bandwagon the way the fans are. Dinobots, Constucticons, Insecticons, are all names Hasbro wants to hold on to, but when it comes to giving you all the members of a team it's like pulling teeth or something.

    Given the skills the Hasbro team has shown with updating characters I know they would likely be great figures, but some things you can only dream about unless something changes like more figures per wave.

    This might sound elitist, but I'd just be happy with a release of the original figures but with balljoints ala Turboedguy. Those originals really were tough to beat.

    Masterpiece Grimlock is my Classics Grimlock so I'd only be intrested in more Dinobots in that scale although I accept that it's not likely to happen.

    And considering the pitiful Deluxe Classics/Henkei Grimlock it's probably a good thing more Deluxe ones are unlikely too.

    If we got a comparable Swoop, I'd be very happy with just him, Classics Grimlock, and PCC Grimstone as sort of an Animated meets G1 team in my Classics Collection.

    I could see Swoop, Sludge and the actual Snarl getting done but not much hope for the Slag.


    They would be awesome, Hell they could reissue Energon Swoop for all i care and i'd use it as a CHUG Swoop.

    They could change Slag's name to Spastic.
