    Grimlock's Robot Mode is pretty cool but that Dino Mode UGH. <shudder>

    Soundwave looks cool. Grimlock looks like stage dressing for some 80's hair band concert.

    Wow...that Grimlock repaint actually looks awesome. It's too bad the Voyager repaint isn't colored like that, as it would be an instant buy for me if it was. I'll definitely be getting him when he comes out. Soundwave doesn't look bad either, but I'm not sure I'll get him. I'll wait to see him in person to decide. It's at least good to know he's still on his way. Even for a straight up repaint, that has a somewhat randome color scheme, Fireblast Grimlock is epic win :D 

    :bay :bay 

    Edit: I'm going to rename Fireblast Grimlock as Repugnus :D

    Soundwave looks good.
    Grimlock not so good.
    But with a new asst announced maybe cliffy and dirge won't be too rare.

    Soundwave looks as I would expect him to but Grimlock... not so sure about him. That alt mode looks not so great.

    Grimlock in a wacky paint scheme? :crazy:  Definitely a big pass on that one.

    Soundwave is awesome. Looks like he might be very similar to BB in the transformation scheme, which is perfectly fine because BB kicks ass. Bought for sure.

    Although I like to collect all the Dinobots from different lines this one is a definite pass. It looks like there was paint spillage all over him.

    I kind of like the new color scheme on Grimlock. Dunno if I'll pick up Soundwave though.

    Soundwave's pretty good for an Activator. Grimlock just has too many colours and not enough detailed paint apps.

    "Fireblast Grimlock" looks sorta like a Predacon. Cool but easy pass. And the Soundwave one looks a lot like the deluxe.

    Hmm, I actually quite like those. Grimlock's deco is crazy, but that's why I like it... so much more interesting than the reputedly-canned Golfire repaint (kinda makes me wish this deco had been done on the larger figure). Soundwave looks nice as well.... though he desperately needs some more paint apps. Might have to touch that one up a bit.

    Anyway, I'll be picking up both of these. Activators are kind of a guilty pleasure, and quite fun for fiddling with.

    >_< which I can't even find still!

    Grimlock looks like the Pokemon Groudon in dino mode with those colors.

    I will probably pass, but any new TFA toys is a good sign that Hasbro is not bailing out on them yet.
