    Unlikely, but not unprecedented:

    If we use the ratios of two Voyagers equal a Leader, and two Deluxes equal a Voyager (which is where price points were at one point), SS Devy equates to five leaders.

    With comic grimlock up for order another 4 years of color variants seems inevitable.

    Didn't expect Hasbro to really listen to the gaslighting that Swoop is the shortest Dinobot

    G1 always had him be the same height as the others

    It's about once a week that someone posts that they want to see an SS86 Dinobots box set because it sounds cool

    I bet one in ten actually do the math

    Pretty much. On paper it’s a really awesome idea. But even with a discount, it’s still very pricey. The audience of buyers would be small because most folks already have at least 1-to-4 Dinobots and aren’t interested in collecting doubles.

    I won’t deny that I’d admire it from afar. But it’s too pricey even with slightly better decos/accessories.

    Oh, I don't want a box set...I'm just predicting a Generations Selects release or something.
    The extra sword s are now in the moulds (I assume anyway), and Swoops being on the same mould as his head (or at least the crest) shows it would be easy to release at least that part in toy colours.

    With the first sighting in Asia, I’m surprised more here havent reported one in hand yet.
