    Nice! As commented earlier, it's tough to see the details in that color. With this new proto I've flopped. At first i like the bot better than the alt mode. Now I think the alt mode is sexier.

    I'm in for FTs, but GiGa is 1 colored proto away from getting me to arrive at the mental and financial justification for a second set of dinobots.

    "How Grimlock Got His Groove Back"

    Seriously, somebody give that bot a pair of stilts. Love Grimlock's new crown, but I think it'd be even better to give him dreads and just call him "Dreadlock".

    For me it's between Fans Toys' Dinobots and Gigapower's Dinobots. I just wish I could see the entire group together before I decide which way to go.

    Well, I certainly feel like I'm leaning toward Giga Dinobots. The proportions look far more up my alley. I'm looking forward to more of these photos and the development on all of them :)  Planet X FOC Dino's and potentially this set are going to satisfy my Dino-needs.

    Gigapowers design has the look of really powerful figure while Scoria just keeps reminding me of a scaled up G1 toy.
    It will be intresting to see how he compares to the fan toys version of snarl

    I don't care about size too much. This could be MP-08 sized and I'd be happy. What I like about Giga is their style... Their sculpting. Just little things like robot hands and robot head. I hate FT's hands and ugly head sculpt. Kinda ruined Scoria for me.

    I think the exact opposite. Scoria's back leg transformation is awesome and really stands out as looking more like the toon in bot mode. Giga's Snarl looks like the transformation could be just like the G1 toy.

    I do think both modes look really awesome though. Giga seems to be going for a beefier, tougher look while FT seems to be going for a more cartoon accurate look. I think both have their place and both are a big win for us fans.

    Yeah, these guys seem more like an upscaled version of the g1 toy. I just prefer the toon look. Still looking forward to see the final result

    Hmmmmm... It might be the post, but it feels like his heads a bit smaller and his legs seem a fair bit longer.

    He just doesnt feel as imposing now IMO from that one shot. (This could be entirely down to bad posing though)

    The "Wings" also went OUT more rather than UP in the original G1 toy. I heard that these pieces might be poseable on him though? or did i imagine that?

    The way Giga gave big toes to their Snarl and yet hides them in dino is a big upgrade from the last proto.

    I have nothing bad to say about this design. I like the proportions of the body, it's dynamic in a way that reminds me of old Dreamwave illustrations. Stop tweaking it already and get this bad boy into production!

    Yay big toes! That is a pretty significant improvement over the last one indeed. I'd like to see them keep the clear bits. Not sure how I feel about the chrome, I think I'd still want it too, keeping in line with MP Grimlock and the old toys. Hope they can find a way to tuck away the Dino legs.

    that looks awesome!!!

    I've kinda decided to just go all FT for these Dinobots but i'm thinking about nabbing this guy [he's due out before the FT one right? I'd assume so given how much farther along he seems to be]

    They've shown a rough sketch/design of Not-Slag, but that's all we've seen so far -
