    Rather than have this be spread cross both the Definitive Classics and Definitive Masterpiece threads I figgured I'd start a new one.

    It seems to me that a good number of our fan group would like to see the Dinos released, whether it's via Masterpieces (unlikely, I know) or Classics-styled (We have Straxus, Skullgrin and Thunderwing. Stranger things have happened). Unfortunately we've been told several time reissues are out of the question because of lost or destroyed molds (not that we weren't told similar things about Soundwave).

    I just wanted to see via a poll what my fellow fans would rather buy:

    -Masterpieces of Slag, Snarl, Sludge and Swoop to go with Masterpiece Grimlock

    -Classics updates of Slag, Snarl, Sludge and Swoop to go with Classic Grimlock

    -NEW Classics-updates of all five Dinobots, including Grimlock

    -Reissues and only reissues

    -Any Dinobots that are released would be bought

    -Dinobots are worth remaking or reissuing


    As for me, I'll buy any Dinobot Masterpiece, Classics update or Reissue they manage to release. Especially Sludge, outside of the name being given to the BW Neo Dimetrodon mold in '03 he never gets any love!

    Thanks ahead of time for participating!

    Another "what size class do you want updated Dinobots to be" thread! Hooray!

    I don't care what size class they are. Bought. On spot.

    I would really like to see all 5 Dinobots get an updated Classics treatment. Not updated like Classics Grimlock (possibly one of the worst Transformers I've ever purchased) but updated like RTS Jazz or Classics Cyclonus got updated.

    Another snarky post by Wollstone! Hooray!

    ;) 

    You'll notice 'size class' was never mentioned once in my post dude...

    All "Updated Dinobots" threads devolve into size class debates.

    With the exception of #5, I'll like to vote for EVERY OTHER option!

    But that's not how the polling works... :eek:

    I wouldn't mind seeing the rest of the Dinobots in MP form to go with Grimlock. I already have MP Grimlock with my classics display.

    Classics first (no need for a new Grimmy), then Reissues, then Masterpiece.

    I think deluxe or voyager size would go well with MP grimlock. Gold chrome would be a must! What about dynobots? From war within /maximum dinobots

    I'm going to travel the most realistic route and say I'd want Classics of the remaining four Dinobots. Kids like dinosaurs, right? I think Hasbro could find an outlet to release the four remaining Dinobots. I'm fine with the original Classics Grimlock as well; all around it's a nice figure.

    ONCE MORE WITH FEELING~

    Voyager Grimlock
    Voyager Sludge
    Deluxe Snarl
    Deluxe Slag
    Deluxe Swoop.

    Second choice'll just be Classics updates of the currently unreleased four.

    I would like new Masterpiece Beast Wars Dinobot considering that he's in the hall of fame now.

    The rest of the other Dinobots were lame outside Grimlock anyway, and Grimlock is really pushing it. Being realistic, I'd say a fan's best bet are homages in the form of Animated or PCC Dinopope in other lines. If you really want to though, maybe another one or two later down in the next generation-like deluxe line.

    Asking for full on Masterpieces of 4 other hardly relevant characters is really unrealistic though.

    I really would like the other 4 to be released in Classics form. Preferably Swoop first. :D

    Why do people even suggest lumping TFA figs with Classics? It's like MOTU and GIJOE, not even close to looking the same.

    I would even buy them if they were reissued in miniature, wst-esque form, faithful to the g1 versions. Even if they were issued by a third party.

    Oh. wait. I did! Happy me! Still want classics though.

    Wasn't one of the complaints regarding Classics Grimlock was that the lizard mode didn't look like the original version?
