I'm going to try and hold off for the inevitable WeiJiang oversized figures. I'd love for this to stand toe-to-toe with Combiner Wars Devastator and the Titan Predaking that's coming out.
I just had a brilliant idea! So grimlock seemingly not coming with a weapon means volcanicus has no weapon. But remember those baby dinobots from the last knight? Well substitute those for clobber and ptero from titans return and you now essentially have two targetmasters for the dinobots combined form
Volcanius looks like a mess now, but I am going to wait and see when it is in full color and transformed by someone who knows what they are doing.
I just saw that mess of a movie. Where did those little baby dinobots come from? Was Grimlock laying spark eggs or something?
Honestly no idea haha
Did Hasbro announce the price point for the Dinobots/Volcanicus?
I'll admit i'd like to see bigger Dinobots, but I'm happy to see the whole bunch available in G1 styling for the first time in a long time, and I'm WAY on board. (and will probably be on the lookout if good quality upscaled KOs should appear). Can't say I'm a big fan of the combiner aspect, but it will be fun to play with while I decide on best modes, and (aside from maybe sizes) the only Dinobot hit very hard by the "combiner compromise" bat was Grimlock.
What surprised me is how hard the POTP Dinobots smacked me right in the nostalgia bone, with the "gold under glass" deco design. I haven't been so happy about toys conceptually since the last time I heard a new Waspinator toy was on the way.
Yes. Grimlock is voyager price and the rest are deluxe price.
would have dumped that gimmick for the figures all being leader size.
They just revealed that Slash, the 6th Dinobot (meaning the oldest new dinobots) is female.
7th you mean? You're forgetting Paddles
Would love to see them make a G1 style Slapper too
That never would have happened in a single line considering at most we usually get four distinct molds in a line
I'm so tired of this complaint. How many leaders are we getting? You want them to all be Dinobots?
If I can get it for les than 150 USD, I'll probably get it
Agreed, if all the dinobots were leaders we would be losing out on at least 6 other toys currently shown off (considering leaders in this line are 2 figures in one)
From what I've seen voyagers will jump to $30 but that's the only price hike that concerns the combiners so retail would be about $90 before any shipping, $100 if you want slash too
Problem is, deluxes start at 30 here if they show up at all, and I'd probably have to import anyways.
yeah, when CW first appeared, the arealbots went for 50 at TRU, and that was one of 2 places that had them.
I know it's not for everyone but have you tried taobao?
Volcanicus looks dumb, but the rest of the Dinobots in their individual modes look fine
