    I think the Grimlock is a Lawson exclusive. Pics have been out for weeks but the preorder for it is new. The Slag preorder has been out for two weeks now at BBTS. I think they look good. I would like to see more G1 decoed Dinobots.

    Agreed, and that's why I might not get these guys its about $250 for just the two figures.

    Dat price tag though. I'll wait to see if Hasbro will come out with a gift pack or something. That would be cool. If not I'm fine with the current paint jobs. :)

    How on earth did Slug sell out? Absolutely ridiculous pricing for pretty mediocre molds (and decos, in Slug's case...not feeling the G1 vibe from him).

    This is the second time Slag has sold out, I bet some people will drop their preorders again.

    Hopefully Habsro will do some ridiculous Platinum 7-pack of the dinobots in G1 colors. Or at least a 5 pack.

    Those prices are so unjustified. I mean the g1 colors in my opinion don't work for the new versions of the dinobots. I mean silver is nice but i like the mix or random colors on the hasbro versions.

    Hope the same G1 repainting happens to AoE Deluxes Scorn, Slash, Snarl, Strafe, and Voyager Slog.

    I had a feeling that these would be repainted to G1 style dinobots. So glad I waited and didn't impulsively buy Slug and/or Grimlock yesterday. I will wait for Hasbro's inevitable release of these repaints. :)

    I'm hoping these are released in a more affordable outlet. $110 for a deluxe, $125 for a voyager ... ow.

    I'm still saying this is a no brainer SDCC set. I'm going to stick with that prediction.

    Man I would really like a set of all of these in G1 colors but F that pricing. A repainted deluxe for over $100? Pass.

    Hell. No. Not that those prices. The fruitzilla coloring looks better to me anyway.
