    i love it! it's dinobots...and they combine....i'm sold. i love combiners so this just makes for a fun set.

    this does not ruin the 'lore' you're taking toys too seriously if you think that.

    this is just a fun alternative and i can't wait to get my hands on it. i have the AOE G1 head dinobots so these guys will go on my shelf COMBINED

    yea, why would anybody ever want giant dinobots to go against their giant devastator? no no, tiny ones are so much better.

    Yeah, well the Predacon and Predaking toys are going to dwarf the Dinobots and their combiner.

    I`m thinking Slash may make VOLCANICUS`s chest some how , and the Cindersaur repaint may make ABOMINUS`s ...I mean I may be wrong , but I just have this feeling .

    I like it. It's not ideal, I'd prefer some bulky, ratchet-y "Cybertron Series" ultra class Dinobots, but this is the new reality, and the gimmicks now at least have the potential of being cool. Choosing between no dinobots and combiner dinobots, I choose combiner dinobots. If you want something more in line with G1, several third parties got you covered.

    I don't really care for it. I'll put it together once, for shits and giggles, but I'm just going to keep them in Dino mode. I'm just glad the figures don't seem to have any compromises for the gimmick. Can't wait to get them!

    That looks nice but sadly it looks like he's got a dippy grin on his face and a hand doing devil horns on his forehead.

    Good digipaint job though.

    I think my favorite thing about this is the spiky brass knuckles. I'd like to see anyone survive a punch from that guy.

    I don't care for the whole combining gimmick, but if it gets us all the original Dinobots (with bonus legends Slash!) then I say cool.

    He looks much better in color. His hands don't look too terribly small. But the feetsies need to be larger.

    Okay one more question. Is his Combiner head hidden/integrated into Grimlock? Thatbseems to be the case with all the Combining Voyager torsos huh?

    I think an add-on that turns that goofy tuning-fork tiara into an actual proper crown is in order. Funny how they give Starscream's combiner head a crown but not ol' Grimlock. Maybe I'll get lucky and the MP Grimlock crown will fit it (and not also look corny)

    Well, now we have Volcanicus. He's grown on me, probably because I wasn't putting him together quite right before. Finding swords to give him and Micronus Prime as his gun definitely help make him better.

    Still wish that there was an official way for Slash to attach. Oh, well.

    No...but I am experiencing some weirdness when I try to delete text from this reply box when using my phone.

    As for Volcanicus, I think he is just about the best looking official combiner ever released. He needs a few fixes out of the box, but I love the design and proportions. I've been waiting for a dinobot combiner for decades.

    I dig the idea of Volcanicus. The toy, while not as bad as most make it out to be, does have his flaws. I think, for what it is, it's a more than serviceable, fun, poseable bot. I would like to see some type of media go into a backstory for him, as there are many opportunities for storytelling.

    DSC00346.JPG I was skeptical of the Dinobots being a combine team but after mess with them and combine them. Looks pretty kewl.
