    Like Snarl was last time, I am highly anticipating "Commander" and "Flamethrower." I am also not surprised if they are a bit late (like Snarl was), and much like those who camp out at movie theaters, I am getting more giddy for the final product as time moves along. So, here I am camping out listening to the crickets. Anyone else?

    I'm ready! Preordered them a while back. When is the scheduled release date again? Since I preordered them, I haven't been paying any more attention!:eek:

    Scheduled release date was August 25 (with US toyshops expecting to get them in early September). They're just making a fashionably late entrance :)

    Yeah I'm definitely with you...after seeing how incredibly awesome Snarl was I can't wait to get Grimlock and Slag, and I hope Sludge and Swoop aren't far behind.

    These were due out on Aug 25 but have yet again been pushed back by Justitoys until shipping date of September 10th now.

    Sorry, you will have to wait just a little longer.

    Spencer.

    Oh well, a little longer isn't going to hurt. :drunk 

    If that date holds, then they will still likely be at BotCon (though I have them on pre-order also).

    I'm glad you started this thread. I was thinking about asking about this myself. I think I'm going to go ahead and get a few of them. I don't have any of the other WST's but I love the Dinobots, and this is a far cheaper way to get them.

    I just stickered up my red Snarl, so yeah I'm nice and ready for them. I wonder if the stickers will be better this time or if I'll have to wait for repros.

    I'm hoping to pick up all three at Botcon. I really would like them to finish the set but mostly because of Swoop. He's always been one of my grails but I simply can't make myself pay the collector prices for the Dinobots when reissues have to become a reality eventually. They simply have to, nevermind logic.

    I was just thinking about this today. I preordered them so long ago now. And even when they do ship I won't see them for another six months. Out of sight, out of mind. I'm so ecited about sludge and swoop though.
    Does anyone know how they design these things? Does there have to be a full size version available? I'd like to see them take a crack at an original dinobot.
