    Hey, guys. I'm in a little predicament. I'm close to getting my first paycheck for my first job. I've been planning to buy a couple things with said paycheck, however, I can't find a definitive, non-bootleg, non-expensive place to buy the age of extinction dinobots. I actually made an account because I hear you guys are awesome, and might be able to help.

    So all the listings I see on amazon/eBay are painfully expensive or have the stench of being a bootleg. I'm just wondering if there's a website/place I can find all of the dinobots. I don't mind off-card figures as long as they aren't destroyed, but on-card is preferred. Hell, if any of you guys wanna strike up a deal that ISNT 90 bucks a pop, I'm up for that, too.

    I really appreciate anyone's help.

    I swear a lot of people were selling off their sets of Dinobots on ebay recently for usually good prices. And you can tell they're not KOs.

    Thing is, they want 60 bucks for a deluxe. I'm not made of money. The ones that look "professional" have price points that seem too good to be true and have bad English on the title, which makes me nervous based on my previous bootleg incident.

    Transformers® Movie - Age of Extinction (AOE) Toy Store

    Takara is doing another go at Voyager Grim and Swoop. They come with a Mini op and bee rider if you want to wait for them, but otherwise that's all of them loose. It's really rather annoying how people just jumped to insane pricing on them just because.

    If you care for scale there were some very good high quality upscaled versions, not sure if everyone was done, but they don't feel like cheap ko's and I believe they did have die cast. Not sure if Sirtoys still has any in stock at this point though.

    I'm assuming by your post that you're looking for ALL of the original retail versions of the AOE Dinobots:
    Voyager Grimlock
    - I'm selling mine loose for $5;
    Deluxe Swoop
    - this one has gone up in price a bit, but Takara is re-releasing it at about the same price.
    Deluxe Snarl
    - heck, I'll sell you mine
    Deluxe Slag
    - man, I had a few of the that I had a HARD time selling. I'll see if I have any left.
    Deluxe Scorn
    - this one is going to be the hardest to find. There's this one MOSC on eBay: NIB - TRANSFORMERS "Generations - Deluxe Class - Series M4" SCORN - NEW IN BOX! | eBay
    Voyager Slog
    - $11 shipped on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Transformers...8&qid=1480888386&sr=8-1&keywords=voyager+slog
    Deluxe Slash
    - I'm surprised how much this one has gone up in price

    Honestly, I would be some of the upscaled KO's. They'll cost you less, they'll be bigger (their dinosaurs, they should be bigger) and they'll be just as good if not better with the extra bit of alloy or die-cast. I have a number of upscaled figs and can't complain.

    IIRC isn't the current/upcoming platinum dinobots collection the AoE dinobots in G1 colors?

    Found'em for a hundo on Amazon: http://a.co/cVBEvUJ

    I use Google Chrome and have the wikibuy extension installed. It gave me an offer for the platinum dinobots for $91.10, free shipping.
