    Kinda dissapointing that Snarl's head is just sitting there in the middle of his back like that. And from the look of it it doesn't have any articulation either. I know Snarl's supposed to be this big hulking brute but he's starting to look a little brick-like.

    Still, it's looking like the Animated line is gonna take a bigger hit out of my wallet than the movie line did. :D

    I think they both look cool, but Snarl gets a lot of leeway because he's a dinobot. He could have benefited from a larger size.

    With each packaged Snarl figure that is leaked, I begin to lose hope that the final retail version will have a painted club.

    I'm also disappointed that his bot mode collar is left unpainted and that his hands are black instead of red like the animation model. I'd rather they'd left out the non show accurate shoulder flames for a few more paint applications. The light piping design for the eyes is also rendered redundant since they've used clear orange plastic and painted it blue.

    Hasbro seems to have really cut corners on this particular figure. Still, it's a very nice design which I'll end up getting despite these flaws.

    I'm still hoping that Snarl will have a painted club.

    He does have neck articulation. If you check out Sean Longs review you will see that his is pretty darn articulated.

    Despite originally planning to pass on Oil Slick, he looks better with every image that shows up. Still, I think I'll end up passing.

    ...DAMN IT.

    Every time... EVERY TIME I think Hasbro has produced a figure I won't be interested in, I take a look at some beautiful pictures and they change my mind! Oil Slick, why are you SO FREAKING COOL?! I thought you were going to have wheels for feet but... what's that? Your bike kibble forms feet around them?! Well, damn.

    Oil Slick and Prowl. These are, hands down, the greatest cycleformers I've ever seen, and I want them BOTH!

    Oil Slick looks decent, nothing special though (those legs/feet look a little stringy/dodgy, just like Prowl's).

    Lovin' Snarl.

    Oil Slick looks awesome, real badass.
    Snarl...eh, definitely my least favorite of the 3 Dinobots, just don't care for him all that much.

    Agreed, though he just looked so incredibly cute (in a Dinobot sort of way) at that size in the Botcon display case.

    Given the progression of images seen of Snarlag, I'm pretty sure we're stuck with the translucent Cheetoh-club. :)  At least is should be pretty easy to paint if need be - not like you need to be too precise with your edges and all that.

    Oil Slick's the first Animated figure I've seen that I really don't care for at all. I love motorcycle tfs, but I'm not feeling his alt-mode, and his bot mode's nothing special either. I'm particularly unimpressed by those "feet" and his headsculpt. Perhaps if he had been repainted, given a different head, and used as a junkion motorbike, I'd have some love for him...somebody with some skill needs to get one and bash him up, that'd be badass.

    Not only that, but since the club isn't used during the transformation, there's no risk of paint chipping (sp?).
