    Have never really gotten into third party but seeming as the Dinobots (other than Grimlock) are doubtful for being made as a MP anytime soon and I have to get this Omega Supreme that is coming out was thinking about getting Slag, Sludge, Swoop and Snarl in the Fans Toys version and wanted to get thoughts on the best ones.

    I think I want a Blue Soar and most likely FT-06 and FT-07 basic editions that are more G1 accurate I guess but I'm not sure which Slag to get.

    Is Scoria better or this new Cesium that is coming out and what are the differences? Thanks for any help, time to form a Dinobot team finally.

    Never had Scoria, but Cesium I have.
    I say go to which ever you like looks and sizewise.
    Cant go wrong with either.

    Great, thanks! After reading some other reviews it seems Cesium is a great bot for the price.

    Couple other questions if someone doesn't mind. Before I drop a couple hundred on some bots I'd like to make sure I get the right ones.

    Does Cesium scale with the MP Grimlock that Hasbro did?

    Also, are there plans to replace all the Dibots with Perfect Fusion versions or are Soar, Sever and Stomp the final versions of them?

    That Grimlock is too small.
    Nothing is known for sure either way IIRC

    Dalianjj from Fans Toys has gone on record to say that they are not doing any other PF dinobots.

    Ok, guess I need to pick up a Grinder as well. I see alot of these for cheaper on Ebay than Tfsource. Has there been any issue with KO's for these? Lots of China sellers on Ebay concerns me.

    I'm not trying to be pushy, but if you decide you want the FansToys Dibots (MP Dinobots), I highly recommend you not hesitate to do so. The reason why I say this is because they sell out pretty quick. Some stick around and then all of a sudden the stock is sold out. Grinder sold fast, as did Blue Soar. Sever (Snarl) seems to be running low in supply and Stomp (Sludge) recently got a reissue. The newest release is the Cesium (Slag). I was not planing to get all the FT Dinobots. I originally only wanted their Grinder and Soar. After getting Soar, and seeing pics of Grinder, I poked around and found that Stomp got a lot of praise from people. Got that one and found that it easily lives up to the hype (at least for me). And I was never a huge fan of Sludge, but man, it's a great MP. So now I have to have all five. :lol

    I really don't want to read 400 pages. To get original red soars leg clips/feet replacements, i didn't get it from retail. Should I email FT? Also if I didn't get grinder, is there any chance of getting the new face?
