Did we go back in time? These are Combiner Force toys...
Not a trademark issue, a censorship issue. In the UK Slag is a word for sl*t. At least to my understanding. And everyone knows that we can't name a transforming dinosaur robot that. (although how you make the connection to a sexual slur instead of the standard definition of slag, the detritus material removed from steel during the process of smelting, is confusing)
that bumblebee and swoop combined mode is horrifying
Autobot Megatron was actually quite an interesting story arc. Almost any other writer couldn’t have done the concept justice, but Roberts did a good job.
I speak for the all kids out there when I say...
HASBRO, I'M GONNA TWIST OFF YOUR HEAD AND SPIKE IT ONTO THE FLOORS OF A NIGHTMARE YOU CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE!
I WILL DANCE WITH YOU INSIDE OF THE SIX SIDED RING OF FIRE UNLESS YOU MOVE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD, FAR AND FAST...
Words have more than one meaning. Molten slag which Slag is named after is still a valid term. There is nothing sexual or insulting about Slag the Dinobot.
Fanny is a British slang term for vagina, should America ban all uses of the word fanny because of it?
By horrifying... You mean totally bananas and awesome, right?!
hes cool alright
The Dinobots look alright at best, while Megatron and Bumblebee look like crap. This is Cyberverse, after all.
I’d like a repaint of Megatron/Slug as Megastorm and Guiledart from the Japanese Beast Wars series. They would combine to form Guilestorm.
Finally, Hasbro acknowledges other lines besides Generations and Studio Series exist!
These look fun. A main character with a Dinobot. And while still being simple, they look a bit better than the RID2015 Crash Combiners. Can't wait.
Don't get me wrong, the other stuff looks cool, but I'm getting tired of "Oh here's Gnaw like you got 5 years ago but now he's a bit bigger". Cyberverse may still take a bit more design cues from previous designs than I'd like, but Megatron combined with a Dinobot is actually.... y'know, new.
Now show me dem new Botbots!
I'm just saying, if we get a Grimlock in this line, its probably going to have a better T-rex mode than that figure
Oooo. Thanks for informing
Megatron + Bumblebee = Megabee
Reminds me of this
My one gripe. Megatron is top and gets to have the head styled after him, BumbleBee is the bottom but the head is styled after him. Kinda feel bad that even if you combine just the dinobots you're going to still get a bumblebee head. Maybe if it were blue they could pass it off as a powered up gold bug head and it'll be generic enough that a pure dinobot combiner has it's own character.
Its a fun idea. Bumblebee and swoop reminds me of the Bumblebee and Strafe team up in the movies. Not so sure i like megatron combining with slug as much though.
These look both terrible and awesome at the same time.
Slug looks like he was designed after the G1 monster pretenders Birdbrain or Bristleback.
