    I think the fact that the CHUG Appreciation thread is constantly booming, the WFC trilogy is almost unanimously loved, some of the most popular third party figures are CHUG, prove that CHUG is doing just fine. I love my planet X dinobots, but the only other designs I want in plastic form are the IDW ones and any pre earth dynobots.

    I dont think Chug is dead. It's just at a low point right now but sooner or later, they'll come up with designs that 3p buyers would really like. I dont know why they dont turn all of hastak's mp designs into chug size.

    I don’t even think CHUG being dead effects MMC. They’ve always been down with the whole voyager scale thing. So they operate on their own level the same as ThreeZeros DLX scale.

    I may be completely off base here, but my guess is that MMC is reworking or has shelved designs that take some artistic liberties rather than being accurate to the source material. It seems like collectors really prefer source accurate designs and MMC has responded to that. That being said, I would love to see their take on an IDW Grimlock and an IDW Optimus Prime.

    One of these days after I finish my degree (and assuming it doesn’t change between now and 4 years from now, currently planning on paleontology) imma try and put together a full set of dinobots from each major form of TF media for my office, and this guy is definitely on that list.

    For requesting a thread name change the most effective means is to report a post and the Mods will see it for sure. Reporting a post will not get someone in trouble in and of itself, that is based on the content of a post. If there isn't a post with the request (like yours) I would generally just report the 1st post of the thread. When you Report it asks for a reason why in which you add the comment about changing the thread title.

    Again, I really hope they do the rest of the Dynobots and the Scavengers. Grimlock needs both his IDW teams.

    I would prefer the sword to look different but I'm just happy this is still happening.

    Surprised this is apparently still (possibly) happening. After the long radio silence and Planet X announcing a Grimlock I seriously suspected this had been cancelled. Too many other MMC products that were announced and have gone silent (with some confirmed cancelled).

    But it is a welcome surprise and it looks good. Initially only was interested in the rumoured BW Megatron remould, but no longer.

    I'm trying so damn hard not to have more than one figure for most characters... and I've already fallen prey to things like, "it's Okay this time because this is 'dead optimus', this one is 'scourge', this one is 'nemesis prime', this one is..."
    I have Shuraking, and while the accessories are something I wish I could have kept I still doubt I will ever regret selling off Severo himself. I still have Cubrar and Volar, who look like they will fit SO well with Trux for a CHUG Dino team... agh!
    I DON'T need 2 dinobot teams, I DON'T need 2 dinobot teams, I DON'T need 2 dinobot teams...

    Meh. I have the Gigapower dinos, the Planet X dinos, the Fansproject dinos (minus Pinchar), the ToyWorld dinos, and the Hasbro dinos... plus Cyberverse Deluxe Grimlock, TF Animated Grimlock, MP-08, and RiD Warrior Grimlock. What's one more Grimlock?
