    Slag and Swoop look great, and go nicely with how Grimlock looks. I can't wait to see how Snarl and Sludge turn out. Should be interesting to see how they translate into toy-form. Hopefully better than the WFC toys did.

    Wow. Sounds like they're doing some really awesome stuff with the Dinobots in this game. Sounds like they took a lot of the great stuff from the awesome spotlight comic from a few years ago.

    Too bad the designs are boring as hell. They're barely different than G1.

    Why do they insist on keeping the dopey-looking heads from the G1 incarnations that don't look a thing like actual dinosaurs? Trypticon could've looked so much better if he'd had a different face.

    I'd like to chime in and add my voice to those asking for Dinobot figures from this. Come on Hasbro, give us Dinobots! All five of them!

    Same here, for some Dinobot toys that is. Although, I've read somewhere on here that a reliable source makes mention of these coming into reality. Hopefully they give us Slipstream and Arcee as well.

    FoC Jazz would be sweet as he's always been my favorite character. Looking forward to what's in store for next year. Should be very interesting :)

    How can Slag be called Slug. Slug means Lazy, Unmotivated Slob.

    Slag is a Hate filled Rage Machine with a really short fuse. and he would rather burn things to molten Slag then appreciate things around him. He's all about smashing and crushing everything. not being a lazy half-assed bum who sits around doing nothing. Slag is all about taking action. keep his name SLAG.

    Slug also means to knock someone the fuck out. It's a simple, subtle, great change that allows Hasbro to make a toy of both him AND Snarl, whose name is often given to Slag.

    They all look great!!! And I love the Dino mode of Snarl in the background. I hope if they do a toy of him they give him those clear red fins down his back. :)

    At the end of the longer video, "Grimlock" says "Grr. Arrgh."

    The Dinobots are Whedonists.

    They look cool and all, but..... dinosaurs on Cybertron? Doesn't this contradict the cartoon where they built the dinobots on EARTH, hence the name, Dinobots and supposedly the Autobots and Decepticons did not know that much, if any about Earth and it's species back then before crashing on Earth. Hmmm... oh well. Just my opinion. The game looks like if it's gonna rock though.

    This is really exciting, but also very bitersweet for me, because I feel like it is inevitable that Hasbro will disappoint us here. The kid/collector in me is holding out and wants to post just like everybody else on here to PLEASE give us toys for all of the dinobots, however the realist in me knows that will most likely not happen. Just to use WFC as a point of reference. In WFC we had a pitiful 4 toys (not counting cliffjumper as he wasn't in the game, and was only retool of Bumblebee) made for how many playable characters in the game? We had Megatron, Brawl, Barricade, Breakdown, Soundwave, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Optimus, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide, Warpath, Sideswipe, Silverbolt, Jetfire, and Air Raid (plus NPCs Zeta Prime, Trypticon, and Omega Supreme) Now I was never expecting to get any leader/supreme sized figures (Trypticon or Omega), but I am still pretty bitter we did not get Ratchet/Ironhide, Screamer (and the other seekers), Jetfire and even 1 or 2 of the other playables. We got less than 25% of featured characters in toy form. So to reiterate I think there is a strong possibility that we will get a Grimlock toy, a moderate possibility that we will get Grimlock, swoop, and dare I say Snarl, and a glimmer of a sliver of a minute chance that we will see all 5 in toy form. That being said, pleeeeaaaase make me eat my words Hasbro.
