He looks a bit.... Canadian?
"Me Slag no like anything!" - Slag
He looks great!! Perfect scale and great colors. Looking forward to the other dinobots!
Seeing this new Slag takes me back to Season 1 in 1984 when the Autobots built the Dinobots on Earth. There was a kind of magic that only existed that year, when Transformers were thought to be robots that could just multiply by building new troops without dealing with a Matrix, or Vector Sigma, or Sparks, or the Allspark. It would be cool if there was a series that had continued down that simple path of they are just complex machines with a mind of their own that can multiply at will with no magical item needed to do it. Kind of like Terminators with a personality program. That would be down right scary!
I thought Paddles was female?
No one was talking about character or the in movie failures of story and character, they were talking about design, transformer design and toy design. Aka toy discussion.
hmm, does anybody else feel that back feet are too narrow (I know they fold and probably this is the reason why they are narrow)?
Yes they are too narrow, I missed that before.
Looks great. Total unit, as he should be. That head will be getting repainted. And then the inevitable toy deco Selects release will smite my efforts.
Daniel, the absolute quilt, that thing can get in the fucking sea. If you're not giving us swords, at least put some effort into the other accessory.
That's one origin I definitely preferred the Marvel treatment for. Even for the cartoon, it was a flimsy premise.
I'd strongly consider buying them all again in toy decos though...
So looks like all the dinobots are going for a hybridized toy/animation model design rather than "as close to animation model as possible"
That would be preferred. Animation model is usually far too simplistic.
I was referring more to how to build and kill transformers, not the origin of the species. I personally preferred the Quintesson Origin of the species over the Primus Origin from the comics, but liked things from both origins.
The comics did probably do a better job showing damaged not operating transformers getting repaired and back to operating condition and pushed the limits more than the cartoon did on how much damage a transformer can take and not die, but I can't remember how they built new transformers in it. Did they require Victor Sigma at some point to give them life instead of just Ratchet or Wheeljack programming them and making them instantly live on their own?
Not bad. I was wondering if the rest of the dinobots will be released in this series.
just watch, the first 4 dinobots are all gonna have some stupid partner, and then the 5th will come with 5 swords.
Oh baby Primus....he looks amazing ! can't wait for a Dinobots reunion.
I'd love Swoop to come with Prof Moris and Sludge to come with Joy Meadows (if they aren't in the SS line of course) but they probably won't because that's not Sunbow.
Ist already 100% accurate
I don't think
G1 Sludge has ever been actual brontosaurus size, at least in the cartoon. Unless he is modelled on an adolescent or another smaller species entirely which just resembles a brontosaurus. Aside from Swoop they've always been around the same size.
That's not to say I wouldn't mind a larger Sludge.
I guess their present day origins in the TV show would account for their differences with real dinosaurs. (I.e they're alt forms are hardly disguises but weapons, so they need not accurately resemble real dinosaurs.) The Marvel origins, not so much, although I prefer that story.
