    Interesting, sculpt-wise it really reminds me of KFC's MP-level Wreck Gar. I like it.

    Just like Grimlock, it’s very simple to transformed between the modes.

    Slag does not disappoint. Doesn't do anything majorly new, but it does being a big-ass Slag exceptionally well.

    I know the term "mini masterpiece" gets thrown around a lot, but if it means looking awesome in both modes and nailing the character then Slag deserves that description for sure.

    They're all coming, but so far just leaked words so no info on exactly when we'll see them. Supposedly Sludge and Snarl will be more leader classes while Swoop will be a large voyager. Not all of them will necessarily be in the SS86 line, but they are all coming

    Slag looks awesome. Your pictures look a lot better than the ones that were previously released.

    Yeah, so I don't do KO's, but ended up stuck with a set of the upsized PotP Dinobots that were going to be customized, but the client ditched.
    Anyway, the only thing I liked about the PotP versions were that the Deluxes kept a lot of the original G1 transformation schemes, such as Slag's dino legs on the outside of the bot mode legs.
    Now, having SS Slag in hand, I'm okay with the toon look over the toy look. Gives it a cleaner appearance overall.
