    Gunk, it's a colloquial word for Sludge.

    I'd rather we keep these in their own threads. But we'll do that when they actually show something substantial

    I really like the body shape for Sludge, the first company I've seen that actually tries to properly make his look like how we now believe Saurapods to look. However that's not been carried over to Swoop and Snarl, which seems a bit pointless. No articulation in dino mode is a massive negative, as is the fact that these are less Classic's, and presumably from what I'm seeing here, G1 with robot articulation.

    Separate threads isn't really practical.

    The igear seekers are spit into 2 threads of 3 yet the coneheads one is rarely used. People just stick to the main 3 thread.

    FT Dinobots and Giga Dinobot threads?
    Very confusing. I only ever go into the FT Scoria and Giga Snarl threads now and ignore the rest.

    Regarding another set of Dinos. I was going to predict the inevitable moaning about too many choices but looks like it already happened ;)

    Where to begin... Um... Welcome to the Dinobot arena...
    "Brontosaurus" is best looking of all of them... Needs thinner tail though.
    Stegosaurus doesn't match brontosaurus. Head too big, tail too low... Looks too much like a poor copy of g1 snarl. You modernized the sauropod, so continue with the stego. Longer tail spikes.
    Pteranodon is just WAY TOO DETAILED. Can't figure out what anything is because there is too many panel lines. Rocket launchers on the back seem superfluous... If you are modernizing the designs, pteranodons sported many different crest styles. Pick something that makes yours unique and modern.

    Hope that's helpful, and I didn't scare you guys off. A modern paleontological take on dinobots would be awesome, as long as the team shows consistency.

    Ok this has officially gone too far.

    We have 3 sets of mps and 2 sets of classics on the way. And now these.

    Here's some feedback.

    1) These are ugly designs. Redo them.
    2) You're coming from behind. At least show us an actual prototype before we take you seriously.
    3) Remove any idea from your minds that you're going to make money off us. We don't shit money. We only pay a premium for well established names with a track record for quality. The only way we'll even consider buying your stuff is a) if your designs wow us AND b) if you price significantly lower that those who have come before you.

    Now go back to your drawing board and come back when you actually have something worthy of a new thread.

    Different flavours. No one complains about too many flavours of ice cream. TFs related, we got more choice in Optimus Prime and Bumblebee than in Dinobots.

    FT
    Giga
    FP
    PX
    Bullsfire
    Hasbro
    TFC KO

    hmmm. For MPs I think I'll go FT for 3 and Giga for 2.
    For Classics probably FP for all 5. These don't look all that so far.

    You tell em.;) 

    They'll do well to listen to this advice.

    Harsh, but well stated.
