    FansProject also said it would be out last year and it wasn't. They also implied both versions would come out at the same time. This whole release has been sitting poorly with me.

    Me too. Severo will be the last Fansproject figure I buy/bought. They need to step their game back up.

    So both versions were delayed? Sounds about right for 3rd party.

    I still have several Fansproject figures to get before calling it quits. I want the Dino girls and Snarl, as well as whatever remains of the Dino force guys (and shells), plus Function X.

    I'm out after Snarl. I was so high on this project, but as product gets delayed you (meaning me) lose interest after a while. Then the chrome being on both because it seemed easier for them to do instead of what the fans wanted, and the regular coming out 4 to 6 weeks after the DX, just made me think FansProject was treating this like an afterthought. If the company can't be bothered with their own product what makes them think I can?

    Oh well, if this is my biggest problem I guess I'm in good shape.

    I want to hold out for Snarl, but I don't know -- I'm buying the Diaclone versions of these guys and they just don't seem to be worth the premium anymore for the different colors. Everyone saying it's not really worth the price, the Diaclone one will be about $40 - $50 more judging by past releases.

    It's either suck it up and get Diaclone versions for the last two or just sell what I have and make a fraction of it back. Either way sucks, I really enjoyed the first two, Volar was kind of disappointing and not it seems Severo is just continuing that trend.

    If Diaclone versions still happen, that is -- if they drop the ball at 3 out of 5 done, I'll never buy FansProject figures ever again. It was after the second Diaclone release that it seemed that alternates of all 5 were a given, but these days who knows with FP, they could just decide not to do it given all their other decisions.

    I've received my Severo from TCP (thansk guys!) and my first impressions are that he's someone I will enjoy however he is not on Vulcun's level.

    That said I like all the weapons he comes with, he has that over Vulcun.

    I just picked up this figure and I must that that other than the chrome, I really like it.

    My main complaint is the chrome. I have no idea why FP decided to 'chrome' the figure. I know some collectors are saying that the its not so out of place with the rest of the released dinos or because he's the 'boss' but it does look out of place.

    I totally agree with you guys. If we didn't get the 'red-head' Snarl or 'blue-body' Swoop, I would have passed these Dinos up. More importantly, it didn't have that dreaded 'chrome' for me.

    IMO FP just lost interest in this 'project'. When the Dinos were launched, we had the Diaclone versions, which were pretty cool. Now they seem to be dragging their feet. I think to maintain interest, they should have released a Dinobot like every 4-5 months at the max..unless they had some financial constraints.

    Anybody selling a DX version? Would like to buy one off the boards before going retail on it.

    Has anyone figured out a way to put Potato (I know that's not his name) on Grimlock's back to ride? I don't see any obvious attachment points or recesses.

    I'm trying to decide if I want to get this or Vulcan. Are there side-by-side comparison pics of them anywhere?

    Waiting on mine to arrive. So very excited to get him. Hope Snarl will be out this year too.
