    There's not a single one of these that I don't absolutely love. Weakest to me is actually probably Grimlock, and I agree that they could use slightly tweaked headsculpts but otherwise I am 1000% on board for these.

    Was going to pair CT Preds against the Gigasaurs in the T-Beast my head canon/fanfic multi-verse.

    I think they've now been shoved into Machine Wars for these guys.

    Be cool if they're slightly taller individually than the Preds like the Gigas though.

    meh more overly stylized gundamish nonsense.

    Gundam and Zoids lovechild line.

    Glad for those who love them, but thankfully I'm keeping these far away from my shelves since they look absolutely nothing at all like the things they are claiming to portray.

    If they offer some more G1 styled heads (at least as an alternate option) then I'm totally in. Love creative alternative takes but head designs need to at least be recognizable as the character even if they take liberties (how IDW reimagined many of them comes to mind as good ways of going about it).

    Also, while I'd love a more gundam style take on Transformers, these are far more Zoids style than Gundam.

    If they redesign Grimlock\'s transformation to be more g1 authentic (robot arms to dino legs) i will buy this without question. Anyone know where you\'d go to make that suggestion?

    Love the looks of these, don't even have too big a problem with most of the headsculpts, though I'd prefer if Grimlock's were either more G1 or more Bay inspired, either or would fit the look of the rest of the figure imo. But yeah...I might be picking up a masterpiece combiner team.

    Her name would have to be "Slammer" to keep up with the S name thing.

    Also, yes, I'd like to have a female dinobot that isn't "Slash" or IDW "Strafe".

    I mean, Swoop robot mode could just be released as gundam and I don't think anybody would bat an eye.

    Answering the question, “what if I want to make Zoids, but know people will only buy Dinobots?”

    They look pretty terrific. And it’s nice to see a take on them that isn’t slavishly devoted to G1 yet again.

    Now this, this I'm interested in. Might not go in for the full set, but at the very least I'll get Swoop.

    Cool Gundams, but there really isn't much Transformers aesthetic in these. Dropping Dinobot colors in favour of something more stylish would probably benefit the set.
