    I am really hoping for the rest of the Dinobots, Blitzwing, Blaster, Perceptor, Wreck-Gar, Junkions, and the Insecticons before they are done.

    dont forget Blaster is supposedly coming out too and so are the Junkions. But Wreckgar39 said no current plans for Perceptor or the Insecticons.

    I really hope that is true about Blaster. He is one of my favorite Autobots.

    This is the best official Grimlock since the MP. I think I still prefer both MechFansToys upscales of the DX9 mold, but for a $50 toy on shelves now I would not pass because if 2020 has taught us anything it’s that popular new toys don’t stick around and don’t seem to restock often or at all.

    On top of that, once the other four Dinobots are shown/released many people that skipped Grimlock will either scramble to buy one at inflated prices or complain about a lack of re-releasing.

    Someone remind me to recreate this pic when I get home, please.

    .... or feel free to also do it. :D 

    I like the idea that Jazz is up there with leadership like Magnus and Prime.
    Like a potential matrix holder or something...
    Pic could use Springer, in that case, I think.

    Almost true story. I have two of the "Sweeps" and I am going to use those as Scourge's fleet of Sweeps for now...

    I imagined more than likely they will released a boxset of all 5 SS Dinobots. Similar to what they did with SS Devastator and POTP Volcanicus (Dinobots). But the boxset prices are same as individual retail and I rather not take the chance and wait.

    So how many Scourges/Sweeps is everyone getting? I have one with two more coming from Pulse so far. I hear there might be a Sweeps pack, but I'd want them to be painted the same. Also how about Junkions? Would be neat if they came with optional parts to swap out so you can mix and match, but I doubt they'd do multiple heads in a single release.
