    Oh hell yes, this is everything I wanted and expected! Steep price, but I'm definitely grabbing it. I even love how they're packaged. I also love how g1 Dinobot-esque she is in alt-mode and that head is awesome. The Ford Explorer looks amazing and the bot mode isn't half bad. I totally expected the head to look like that, very nicely done. Que early November when everyone will be recreating the "clever girl" scene with Transformers* lol

    Edit: aaaand preordered!

    Ditto & ditto :D :p 
    All I need is the words “Jurassic Park” and “Transformers” & I’ll throw money at my screen :lol 
    Honestly, I was expecting something more half-assed like a Trailbreaker or Hound repaint, so this level of effort on the Explorer is great in my book. Names are wonky and a little lazy, but the set itself looks great :rock

    Damn... just noticed JP93 has ball joint elbows :(  definitely not a dealbreaker, but that’s kind of a bummer, idk why either since it’s 2021, not 2005...

    Curious to know how much people want this to cost...? Like I’m not gonna be a Hasbro bootlicker but seriously how much do you want a licensed collab pack to cost? It isn’t gonna be straight what a leader+voyager 2 pack would be I can tell you that.

    That aside I dig this. I wish I could buy them separately though because I definitely don’t have space for an entire dinosaur. It’s interesting and I think they’ve done a good job with this set.

    They'd have to remold the entire outer shell to avoid paying royalties to Ford... so probably unlikely...

    Not entirely thrilled by the price, but I still ordered it. It combines 2 of my favorite franchises how could I not buy it?

    Hmmm. Would like to have the truck, but not for that price. I’ll likely be skipping this one.

    That price is absurd. I liked the Megatron repaint, but JP9 looks like a bootleg to me. I have to draw a line at what point Transformers out-price what their worth, and this is it.

    This. Is. Amazing. Simply amazing. Brilliant too! I thought they'd just do a T-Rex and be done with it but the went the extra mile making the Explorer! Wish I were still into collecting to get this.

    My favorite part of this whole thing is the incredibly awkward press release.

    “Transformers have always been Robots in Disguise, but now, I dunno, Jurassic Park or some shit! We made Todd the Summer Intern write this! Robots! Disguise! Dinosaur! Exclamation marks! Whatever! Nobody actually reads this part! Now go get us some coffee, Todd!”

    The set itself is… fine? It’s fine. I’m happy it exists for everyone who wants it. The T-Rex looks GREAT, which is to be expected on a mold that’s already had 2 releases. Looks like the Explorer’s budget heavily prioritized paint and the various licenses over parts count, which I guess makes sense given all the new tooling, but I wish a little more had gone into the robot mode. This is a dead horse here in the modern TF era, but those empty thighs and forearms are glaring.
