    I've been thinking about getting the WST Snarl before it's too late. My question is, is it worth my time to get it? Does it have the quality of a cheap bootleg or is it a good quality toy? Should I even bother?

    It's a definite buy, just check out the photos that are around. The quality is pretty darn awesome.

    A definite yes. It's not cheap feeling in the slightest... a really amazing toy if you ask me. I can't wait for Slag and Grimlock!

    The quality of WST Snarl and his diecast parts put the official Takara WSTs to shame. In other words, BUY HIM NOW! :thumb

    It's incredible and doesn't feel or look at all like a KO. In fact it runs circles around Takara's official WST line. Buy it without hesitation.

    HELL YES, MAN!!! :stick: 

    I can't beleive that you've actually taken all this time to ask. You should've ask sooner. :thumb 

    If your worried about the quality, don't. When I finally got them, I was shocked and very impressed. It's amazingly on par, equal to the original G1 toy. It's sooo sweet that I had to get two *which was a first for me*, one to leave in robot mode and the other in dino mode. :cool:  It rocks even harder with Repo Labels' WST Snarl sticker set. Buy them both now! :rock

    Great buy!

    I bought him online (at a store we all know) packaged inside a G1 style box. I love it!!! I can't wait for Grimlock and Slag to be sold the same way!

    did they fix the issue with the tail? G1 snarls are hard to come by without on side of the tail broke because of a slight design flaw. It took me 4 to get on that was not broke.

    There's a design flaw? :sly: 

    Can you please either explain and/or show it to me? :confused: 

    Was it broken before you removed it out of thr package?

    The reason I'm asking all these questions is that neither of my Snarl's tail broke *yet:redface2:  *, but if there's a design flaw, I'd like to know so I don't accidently break it.

    Thanks! :D

    the issue is with the Original G1 Snarl. the little tabs that the tail halves use for friction to snap and stay in place are a touch too big on one side or just weak, have not figured out which one exactly, But if you are not careful with that one side, like I was the 1st time, they snap right off and the tail half falls out. Every one of my friends as a kid had snarl missing the left side of the tail...including me, and even when I replaced him as an adult i broke TWO before I just decided not to play with him any more! LOL and I was careful with the 2nd one!


    Incidently I picked up the smallest snarl and preordered the other two last night can not wait to get him :)

    Snarl

    Well mine was great too but I bought it on impulse and then traded it recently for some Technobots, mine had a weird back leg problem it had to do with the way they assembled them, they screw together one was loose one was tight I had to undo it the reattach to fix it , the problem made one leg have karate "chop action."

    I just got my wst snarl today from digital-toys...Let me just say that he is amazing! Totally blown away by this little guy. I do not know why I hesitated so long in getting one. Maybe because they started out with Snarl...my least favorite dinobot. Sludge is my favorite, who I can not wait for. Bring on the Rest! Anyone know a more exact date then just July?
