SDCC 2014 G1 Dinobots and Pop-Up Ark Gallery

Posted on 07-31-2014 at 01:11 PM by Tony_Bacala under San Diego Comic Con
SDCC-Dinobots-018 San Diego Comic Con has come and gone; we've returned back to homebase and are starting to get back in the flow of things. We've done up a gallery for the SDCC 2014 G1 Dinobots box set. This set comes with a pop-up-book style box that turns into a G1 Ark playset. A truly masterful execution I must say. The figures are G1 colored versions of recent Age of Extinction Dinobots, giving you Grimlock, Snarl, Slag, and Swoop in "proper" colors (those are their names, shut up).

Back when Hasbro sent out some early review copies of the AoE figures, I mentioned that I would probably skip the Dinobots, but would consider grabbing them if they got released in G1 decos. Well, they did, and I did. So good job on that Hasbro, I kept my end of the bargain. Upon seeing the set, my first complaint was "WTF no Sludge!" Well, they even addressed that, and made him available in this color scheme, separately through Amazon. So, I can't say jack. The box/playset is a masterpiece, the figures are properly colored and look solid as a team on a shelf. Mission accomplished.

Check out some key shots after the break, and check the full gallery here: SDCC 2014 Dinobots Box Set with Ark - Full Gallery
