    Looks amazing. I recently got SS86 Grimlock and was already impressed by how solid and imposing he is but Slag looks much more elegant (He can even store his gun inside of his tail!).

    Guess I will have to get some swords though.

    He looks great. Love my Grimlock as well. It will be amazing when we’ll be able to line up all 5 togethers

    I need this on my shelf now. THIS is the Dinobots I've been waiting for to happen. Those PotP ones were such a disappointment.

    Can't wait to see the Sludge, Snarl, and Swoop figures next!

    Looks nice.  I await the wave of swords with horn and foot fillers.

    oh man he looks great.

    do we know if we're getting all 5 dinobots in this 'scale' or are they just doing the 4 that were more prominently featured in the movie?

    This is badass, I gotta get me a Grimlock to prepare. So glad the Dinobots are being done justice.

    Looking good. No idea where I'm going to put all these Dinobots but will have to figure that out later.

    lots to love here, a full seat of leader dinobots are gonna be amazing. I guess Hastak saw how well the Gigapower Dinobots we're doing and decided it was time to put out some relatively large ones of their own.

    the inside of the dino head that the bot mode head sits and looks a little thin though, I'm sure it's nice and sturdy and the plastics good and rigid, but at least from a visual standpoint I would have liked it to be a little bit thicker so it didn't look like he was hiding in a paper hat.

    What an ugly toy. Glad it will bring a lot of money into Hasbro's pockets though. Certainly not from me, but from a lot of you. Thank you for your contribution

    Honest prediction though: this will not sell outside the very East and West (Asia and the US)

    If the leaks are true then yes we are getting all 5 Dinobots in this scale, just not in the same lines. Some will pop out in SS86, some in Kingdom, some in a later line.

    Exactly how I feel. Props to those who like it, but for me, the red paint and lack of detail makes it look more like a cheap KO than an official HasTak figure.
