As new characters.
I would. Evil dinosaurs would be fun.
I'd be down. Hell, you could repaint them as most of the members of Dinoforce:
Grimlock > Goryu
Slug > Kakuryu
Strafe > Yokuryu
Slog > Rairyu
Snarl > Doryu
Gairyu would be the odd man out, but still.
There's also plenty of other options for some of them...
Grimlock > BW Megatron, Overkill, Armada Predacon, Cindersaur, Trypticon
Slug > Guiledart, Killer Punch
Scorn > Sparkstalker, Undermine, Sling
Strafe > Flamefeather, Terrorsaur/TM Terrorsaur/Armada Terrorsaur, Lazorbeak/Hydra, Fractyl, Cybertron Brimstone
Slash > Dinobot (BW), Dinobot II, Thrustor
Snarl > Slugfest, Saberback
...You do realize that Gairyu was an ankylosaur, right?
I'm not against redecoing one of the remaining Dinobots to fill the hole, but you're suggesting the raptor. Which is about as far as you can get from an ankylosaur without going airborn.
If you're just going by the feathers-resembling-spikes angle, though, then I rescind my statements.
I'm sure they will
I was thinking Dinoforce too. I don't know if Hasbro would do it though, but I'd be down for importing those if Takara did them.
I can see takara do it but not hasbro. I rather have accurate decos or g1 decos.
Sure, Decepticon repaints would be cool. I love love LOVE the Dinoforce idea.
Hasbro who gave us Sky (Black) Shadow and Crosscut.
They'd make some pretty sweet TFP predacons.
I be cool with G1 decoes or Grimlock and Snarl as Overkill and Slugfest
They were made in generations which is an collectors line. Movie line with even the "generation" figures are targeted towards kids still and according to hasbro kids don't like villains that is why so far there is only 3 decepticon toys.
One or two, I could see as candidates for redecos in the movie line, sure. Hasbro's given us some weird and unexpected stuff before...
...but the whole Dinoforce team, using the AoE Dinobot molds? That seems more like a Takara thing than Hasbro, given the source material. Ripe for exclusive gift set material.
There aren't any Decepticons allowed in the AoE toy line. Autobots and Dinobots only. So no.
Galvatron and Lockdown would like to have a word with you.
Shattered Glass AOE Dinobots?
Dinoforce or bust.
Grimlock repaint as Razorclaw
Strafe repaint as Divebomb
Slug repaint as Headlock
Slog repaint as Darksteel
Snarl repaint as Striker
Scorn repaint as Ripclaw
Slash repaint as Dinotron
Yeah, agreed. At the least, I want movie accurate decos!
