    Nope. Slag's are smaller and fit right into the forearms.

    Does that pin on the side of his head hold the horns on?

    Slag being almost as high as Grimlock always amazes me because when Hasbro/Taktom do a compression Transformation (Prime Bulkhead, Lockdown animated etc), it always has amazing movement/folding transformation, but not to the point of stressful with little bits here and there.

    ow much would it have cost them to give Danial and Wheelie ball jointed knees? Two extra pieces of plastic, job done, everyone much happier.

    They'd still not be ideal but at least they could stand up straight!

    I agree it was lame that they made such badly articulated items. Nevertheless, there are 3d printed replacement legs available from on different 3 model sites.

    I'm more than satisfied with how these SS Dinobots are turning out.

    Slag and Grimlock have set the bar incredibly high. I'll include a few pics to contribute to the thread. 20210706_160932.jpg

    Planet X Quirinus. It's a 3rd party Fall of Cybertron Slag.

    Edit:
    Sorry, you're talking about the War Withing figure, lol. That's from the Iron Factory Asura Knights set.

    Looks like he needs some fillers for the horns and a sword. Other than that, looks awesome.

    Studio Series 86 Grimlock is one of my favorite recent figures and I feel like Slug is pulling the whole thing off even better. I'm guessing the figure benefits from more design time since it probably shares the base body design with Snarl and Sludge. But yeah, I'm looking forward to the rest of these and I'll pick and choose from subsequent group redecos since I generally prefer blue chest Swoop anyway.

    I'm conflicted on this guy. I like that he's big like Grimlock, but I feel his transformation's a bit more fiddly. Getting the part attached to the tail to properly lock into the Triceratops took more trouble than I think should have been warranted. Tolerances on my copy are weird too. Joints are either just a bit loose or way too tight. And finally, I just don't like cartoon Slag all that much. Despite my misgivings I'd happily re-buy this in toy colors. Same with the inevitable Swoop.

    Also Daniel, like Wheelie, is a complete waste of plastic. I honestly would have preferred if they had not been included at all, even if there were no accessories to compensate. Just save the oil man.
