    How do they stack up against one another? I find myself wanting a Snarl again, the one Dinobot I had as a child but they tend to go for a good bit. Will I get the same / similar satisfaction from a WSTF or should I just sink into the bigger, vintage version? I am leaning toward the larger version, to tell the truth, but the prices put me off a little.

    Also, if I am to purchase a G1 Snarl, what is a fair value for a complete one or at least one in good condition if not complete (I can piece it together if need be).

    I don't own any G1 Dinobots, but as my memory recalls, they seem to be practically the same, and will probably give you your Dinobot fix like a G1 would. They are very affordable and you will enjoy display them as I will be...and, they make nice paperweights, unlike g1...

    The line got better as it went on. The first two wouldn't compare to the originals, but Grimlock is damn-near perfect, and I assume Sludge and Swoop will be of similar quality.

    I love all three WSTF Dinos. Grimlock is deffinately the best. Because he's small, Snarls dino-legs and robot lower arms peg in instead of being attached, but he's still amazing. The detail and quality of them are fantastic! Never have I owned transformers like them!

    The differences from the original Snarl are minimal: the hands peg in instead of sliding out from inside the upper arm and the dino-mode rear legs are pegged on instead of being bolted on, both of which are dur to size/space restrictions. When in robot mode, the tail halves tend to flop arount a bit, but really, I'd reccomend getting it. I solve the worrysome problem of losing his fists while he's in dino-mode by leaving the weapons in them. I do this with Slag as well. Your enjoyment of these figures only increases if you've got any of the other WST's, and/or any of the G1 city-formers, and/or scale reduced knock-off combiners. Get them.

    Snarl also has longer pointier spikes on his tail.

    Sllag's fists can be stored in his chest aswell.

    Plus, all dino's are show-accurate in colour, so they have more chrome and blue eyes! (And red head for Sllag)
