    Just wondering if we will get some Classics Dinobots after all teh Animated run there course. Hasbro made Grimlock so what about the rest. Hes Lonely.

    Honestly, if Classics Grimlock is any indication, I'd rather they didn't do any more Dinobots.

    I'd love some Universe Dinobots, Sludge as a Voyager, Snarl, Swoop and Slag as deluxes.

    If we get any, they'll most likely be Snarl and Sludge, and we'll be lucky if we do. Personally I'm hoping that Hasbro works in all four of them eventually. I'm still not a big fan of TF's with animal alt-modes, but something about Classics Grimlock has made those with Dino alt-modes more appealing to me. Here's hoping that we at least get one more Dinobot update. If we were to get one more, I hope it's Snarl, as I'd like to see what Hasbro could do with his dino-mode. That and he could go nicely with the Robot Heroes version that we're getting.

    I don't think they'll have to if they go and do both Snarl and Slag in the same line. The reason that they're using Snarl instead of Slag in the Animated show is because they're using the term Slag as a sort of curse word. Kinda like in G1, but they're avoiding any confusion with the name by using Snarl instead.

    I would love the Slag and Sludge, but like Switch said, if the Grimlock figure is any indication I don't want them to make any more!

    I honestly don't understand the Classics Grimlock hate. I think it's a terrific mold other than the shoulders. I'd love them to make more of them. Also, one bad dinobot does not mean that the rest would be bad. EX: TFA Snarl is not all that awesome, but Grimlock and Swoop are great. Also since any new non-tfa dinobots would be Universe and those toys have a different aesthetic and engineering, I would be that they'd be "better".

    Actually because slag is an insult in Britain. It's a sinonym for slut.

    I'd much rather they do Sludge as an ultra and in animated style. Sneak it in as a 25th anniversary one. Maybe true-Snarl too.

    Animated sucks, don't waste Sludge in it. We need Universe Voyager Sludge and Universe Deluxe Snarl.

    Then keep Slag as Snarl to keep the kiddies form being confused and call the true Snarl Striker. The fans will know what they're supposed to be and there won't be any slut problems.

    Unfortunately true. I'm not as much a dinobot fan as a lot of people are, and I understand they were trying to do something new with Grimlock... but it just didn't work out too well. They can't all be winners, I guess.

    I want them very badly. Mostly because I do have Calssics Grimlock. If they had never made him, I don't know if I'd want the rest so bad. But they did, and to me they are a team and thus since I have one...I need the rest of the team.

    I misunderstood the few opening comments, and thought there was a lot of hate going around for ANIMATED grimlock. that's because he's the only animated one I've purchased, and it was to promptly replace the *quite* sub-par one we got for classics.

    now I'm not planning on getting either swoop or the triceratops, but if they do a sludge and stego, no matter what line it's in, you can betcha I'll pick up whatever figures it takes to have a complete 5-member team again.

    I want an ultra class Sludge. The poor guy has never gotten an update.
