    Do you think HasTak will ever release a new set of dinobots MP style?

    There's always a possibility. They need to ramp up production though. At this rate it'll be 2020 before we get swoop. They're making sideswipe out of the blue if that doesn't say maybe then I don't know what does.

    They haven't even gotten around to a full set of Classics-style Dinobots yet!

    Though I agree pretty much anything is now possible, members of a team (the Seekers) was tried once before to not much sales success in the east or the west. The leader sold great, the other two (or one in the states) not so much. This is also why I feel an MP-11ified SW and TC is not so much of a lock, and they at least have the benefit of being relatively easy to produce, being straight up repaints at all. The dinobots not so much.

    It would also cause much gnashing of teeth. Can you imagine? People complaining that the dinobots are taking up "the next four MP slots" then if they skip a slot and give it to, say, Galvatron, people will start pooping their pants saying "they aren't gonna make all of them!" and on and on and on.

    It's a tough sell. But yes, more possible than "NO WAY NO NO NO NO NEVER," which it was in the past.

    The cars were a definite no. Proclamations of licensing were being spewed left and right and now, now we have sideswipe. That being said you really don't need a license for a dinosaur.

    Although there is a limited repaint for the other Dinos (cartoon accurate blue and g1 toy red) they have that other market of Dinosaur enthusiasts. Worst case, they never get made. If they do, with 2 slots a year, I fear I'll be 50 and won't care when the first one does get made.

    However Hasbro is nothing if not random. With no real insiders to hastak on these board we don't get factual info until everyone else. For all we know Swoop is after sideswipe.

    I absolutely agree, I am only saying the dinobots still seem somewhat unlikely to me from a practical standpoint. It's totally possible, Hastak have made plenty of my predictions look foolish, particularly lately. I'm just saying, gun to my head, dinobots, probably not. But I was as shocked as the rest of the world with the Sideswipe reveal, I claim no insight or knowledge and fully grant that that everything I thought I knew about Hastak logic is now out the window. I honestly would have figured Astrotrain or Springer before Sideswipe. I probably would have been less surprised if they'd said "we settled everything with VW, it's Bumblebee!" We're through the looking glass.

    Sideswipe. Sideswipe. You ruined all my plans, but I will buy you and love you just the same.

    I'd jizz my pants if a Masterpiece Slag was announced but I doubt it will happen. I am holding my hopes up for Fall of Cybertron dinos though.

    maybe after 6 more Optimus Primes, 4 Megatrons, 15 seekers, we'll see another Dinobot. But you'll have to wait, till after they do Grimlock again to get a NEW Dinbot.

    I wish, but it'll never happen unless a 3rd party company does it.
