    No combine mode for the Dinobots?

    Grimlock still has no weapon. Though I'm optimistic, since these are very likely still prototypes.

    Optimus is basically an affordable, lower-budgeted gimmicked-up MP-10. It's like Hasbro knows exactly what I want.
    EDIT: Wait, his hands aren't blue.
    Ruined forever, pre-order cancelled.

    The Dinobots seem to look better in physical form. Still problematic in places though. And I was right (though I didn't write it here previously) that Grimlock's tail becomes heel spurs that aren't level with his feet, which is really concerning...

    I love Swoop with a blue chest but something seems really off about this one. Maybe it's the green cuffs. Maybe it's something else. I'm not sure.

    Optimus looks terrible as a cab. Combined robot from the front looks fine, but that's about it, unfortunately.

    I've seen the bitching and complaining already in the panel thread.

    If you don't like the product don't fucking buy it.

    I personally like most of what I'm seeing here. And the leader prime should be a good MP stand in for a lot of people, he's clearly got some cues from MP-10.

    Can the trailer for Leader size figures like Optimus be something else when not part of the combined bot?

    Everything is cool when you're part of a team!
    (Couldn't resist)

    I hope TT comes up with a godbomber for this Optimus too.

    Everything is... tiny. Why not make a Leader Grimlock and Voyager Dinobots? Screw the combining gimmick. Gimme big dinosaurs!

    Thanks very much for all the pics!

    The leader Optimus looks a bit strange to me, with all his MP-10 styling cues, and his double layers of chest windows (with the actual cab windows and grill right behind the fake windows and grill).

    Dinobots look pretty fun; hope they do G2 repaints. Love me some blue tyrannosaur goodness.

    Did anyone ask them about Cyberverse? Really surprised they didn't have some sort of announcement or reveal after the designs have already started showing up in so many places. They seem to be setting it up to be their next flagship series.

    Probably because, as people have pointed out, we may get Monstructor retools out of some of them.

    Man they're really using the MP line as an excuse to let the retail stuff plummet in quality.

    Because they have a budget to stick to, and if they made a Leader Grimlock but all the other Dinobots as Voyagers, everyone would be complaining that they still weren't the same size and then would want five Leaders AND Optimus as a Leader AND Primal AND Star Saber AND did I mention they have a budget?

    Dinobots are looking like mostly winners for me. Some concerns like Sludge\'s robot mode and Grimlock\'s apparent lack of weapons but they\'re definitely all gonna be mine. Slash being female and a dromeosaur is real nice as well. 

    Optimus? Eh. Looks like a poor man\'s MP-10 and the grey fists hurt the look more than they should for me.
