    AFAIK, i think these are the original dinos that the designer intend to model after when designing the dinobots
    Grimlock - T-Rex
    Slag - Triceratops
    Sludge - Brontosaurus
    Snarl - Stegosaurus
    Swoop - Pteranodon


    Do bear in mind that transformers are design back in the 80s and so the dinobots are also designed based on the interpretations of dinosaurs back then. sure they look very different from the dinos we see in Jurassic Park. one significant difference is in the 80s, dinosaurs just leave their tail on the ground and drag it as it move. modern interpretations is that dinosaurs have their tail raised for balancing purposes

    That's right, and that's a fact. It was written even on diaclone catalogues. And the Italian names followed (Tiran, Stego, Bronto etc..)

    Quite an intuitive review. I'll mention some points that the reviewer said that cannot be seen but only heard. The reviewer mentioned that:
    (1) GP has been releasing 1 figure per year at the moment and though he felt it a long wait, the look and quality of the toy made the wait worthwhile;
    (2) he extended the front legs in the dino mode as it allowed the dino head to be more upright which he felt that gave the dino mode a better look;
    (3) articulation of back legs in dino mode quite limited;
    (4) the plastic covers on the tail extended the length of the trail and gives a better look to stomp;
    (5) transformation quite similar to FT for the back portion of the dino;
    (6) chrome graviter came without any flame accessories. (I think possibly GP may introduce it for metallic)

    Not a fan of his pouty lips and screaming face.

    Otherwise this looks amazing.

    This guy is looking great. I've been waiting to see the colour of the silver paint to see if it would be a good stand in for FT-07x Stomp to complete my set of FT X Dibots. I display them in dino mode and I'm thinking Graviter might just fit in nicely. The paint looks a little darker than the FT ones but it really depends on the angle you're looking from.

    I think without the tail extension, the tail does look a bit ridiculous.

    Robot mode actually is a nice homage to the toy. The proportions are way more natural than on Guttur and Grassor. The face also looks much better. Imo they should include an option for golden eyes to round off that toy look.

    Can't say the same about his dino mode. Giga seem to be following their own style again here. Compared to the G1 toy the legs are longer, the tail is very short and the dino head...idk... Why does it have a bump? o_O  With all those small and sharp teeth and the missing chin it looks nothing like the toy. Dino mode doesn't look good at all to me.

    I've got Grasser and this on pre-order, but have had no luck in finding Chrome Gutter. I am in NO rush, but I do hope Gigapower does reissue Gutter eventually.

    Check tabao for Guttur; I bought one last month for $175 shipped using a third party handler. You can probably get it for $155 direct.

    Is there a way to change the language to English on that site? I have no ideal what anything says beyond doing a search.

    Why isn't BBTS or even TFSource (cough) carrying this? They've got Sludge on preorder.

    And yeah, Giga's Sludge looks pretty damned epic!
