TFC Not-Dinobots Combiner In The Works

Posted on 06-26-2011 at 04:36 AM by Tony_Bacala under 3rd Party Unlicensed
Grimlock-Dino
While still very early on, mock up shots of a Dinosaur based combiner, loosely resembling the Dinobots (or at least their animal-modes), is in the works from TFC Toys.

Check out images of the proposed Combinosaur after the break.

UPDATE: More pictures have come to light of the individual dinos, all from ACToys. There are CAD designs for the T-Rex, Triceratops and Pterodactyl, plus finished renders of the T-Rex. Click here and here for the original sources. 2005 Boards member ki1983ng informs me that these are indeed intended to be third party Dinobots who can combine to form The Beast, but everything is currently still in the planning phase.

It's not that new of a concept (unless you're being sarcastic).

They look like Dinozaurs
Mechafire
Well, at least it looks better than this:



Nah but seriously, it looks pretty sweet.

The not-Dinobots name is more than appropriate. Interesting to look at but I can already see I'd never throw money at what this will turn into.

Most of my interest comes from the individual alt-modes since they look like what the Dinobots might possibly look like if Has/Tak had continued doing them under the Classics line. Other than that, everything else is totally different.
fabexmax
I actually would get these, and display them as the Decepticon Dark Dinobots! Wonder why Megatron never said, ya know what "F*#K the Dinobots, we'll make our own!
deathsheadx
SONOVABITCH.

thats just great. another cool thing i'm probably going to miss out on.

Yeah, was thinking they had a Dinozaur-Zoidish aesthetic, which I actually like. Would like to see these in G1 inspired colors or black repainted "lava" schemes to sway me to buy them.

Wow, that is fucking awesome.

I've spoken to third party peeps about the Dinobots and man, I don't envy them the job. No "update" of the Dinobots has ever worked, just re-release complete homages of the originals with articulation and G1 accurate heads, guns and swords in APPROPRIATE scales.
Don't worry about combining, or reinventing the wheel, being clever with combining weapons or any of that nonsense. Five dinobots. It's all I want.

Now I need to get these.
KNOOM842
WOW 3RD Party overload for real. It look's like after i get the rest of the RTS line that i missed (grapple,lugnut,and 2 wreck gars, and 3to 4 windchargers) No more Has/Tak for me intel all this 3rd party stuff is done. Dinos that combine WIN!
GAUGE
I see no photos or pics.

*facepalm*
BigRC83
Yet another 3rd party product and that is not a bad thing.
Spiderus Prime
Great now we've have not Grimlock,not Slag,not Sludge,not Snarl, not Swoop, & not Beast.
Torque
tempted, though only if theres nothing new coming out at the time. they need to be pretty damn cool for me to hop aboard.
Easterling Capt
dinobots dont combine....period.
wolfe
Interesting. If they could pull this off I would definitely pick it up.

Topic title: SWEET
Actual content: meh. pass
Fort Max
They look like Zoids by way of Evangelion.
Fishdirt
These look like the KOs they sell in big lots.

Unlike the constructicons the dinobots have iconic looks and I don't see anything remotely similar to their iconic robot modes here.

Still , just concept and nothing solid to see yet. Here's to hoping it turns out well!
StayingInTheBox
This really doesn't look that impressive. I'm not a fan of Dinobots combining so I'll have to see a lot from this product to purchase it.
SSR
the grimlock looks like a BW Megatron. im least impressed with him. but the slag, snarl, and swoop look nice.
Bountyan
I like how they each have their own colored highlights; unless those are just prototype colors.

Also, I hope this isn't just a robot with dinosaurs attached to the limbs.
Dolza_Khyron
not dinobot combiner is right wow these guys did a really nice job of making a dinobot transformer combiner, with OUT it being the g1 characters! it looks really neat, and they did a great job of avoiding hasbro's hammer of death! lol

So looks like the Dinos combine too! Gotta get more info on these!

More info on these would be appreciated!
If these are real figures, I want them! They look awesome!
The Asp
I assume that tfc doesn't have the license or whatever from the creators of the source material, correct?


And I'm more interested in that winged ambulance character that these 'not Dinobots'.
Blitz.
its cool to see them step away from G1 as I really hate the idea of the classic dinobots combining.

Also their alt modes remind me way more of then bio zoids from zoids genesis

Zambot
Look like Zoids or Power Ranger crap. Not a fan of this aesthetic.
adamthered
I don't like these. Don't look like they would fit in with the Classics shelf. I'll make a final decision when prototypes show up since these are only drawings.
Suchus Prime
Will this be my first thrid party item? Stay tuned too find out.

Hey I love the idea, I know ill buy it but it looks more like Power Rangers then transformers..

It all depends on if they nail the likeness of the Original character of the Dinobots.

The swoop looks pretty cool but Im not sold on the others.

Definitely looks like maximum Dinobots were seeing!

very cool!
Ezilla82
This could be the year of 3rd party combiners and hurt wallets. But anyways this looks interesting.
simified
I agree, they do look like something from Power Rangers. I'm not really too thrilled with these but they may be good for parts to better articulate and update G1 Dinobots "if" they're big enough.

Maybe I miss read it but I could have sworn someone on here not too long ago mentioned a company was working on re-releasing new versions of the Dinobots that were basically reworked versions of the G1's and the first one was supposed to be Slag. Anyone?

Nice. Although calling them 'not-dinobots' is a bit decieving, since besides the animals they form, there's no connection at all to TFs. Look like really nice Robots anyway, though. Alway's a fan of Dino-alt modes.

What is that?
Autobot78
imho the color identification (ex. red on grimmy n purple on swoop) is a bad idea and if this is paired with him being any smaller than a deluxe its a pass for me. (unless he looks great next to crazydevy of course then its a must have for the battle display )
