    After hearing that the 86 Dinobots are in release hell, since Grimlock and Slag come out this year, and the other 3 are TBA 2022 or even 2023, I’ve been thinking about picking up the set. You think there’s going to be a restock?

    The ‘86 versions will be worth the wait.

    Don’t buy this version if you want the individual Dinobots. Only buy it if you really like combined mode.

    I've been going back and forth on if I want this since it was announced (to the point of pre-ordering and cancelling multiple times) and now seeing it in stock I bit the bullet and bought it. It was seeing that BBTS still has the upgrade kit available for Pre-order that pushed me over the edge. I really dig how this looks with that kit so this seems like it does fill a small hole I wanted filled in my collection.

    Custom birb/drone mode for all the accessories except for the two clear swords. Just in case you don't like the idea of overstocking the single robots.

    Mine came in the mail today, packaging was a bit wack with the box it came in being twice as big as the gen selects box inside so I wasn't completely sure it was it when it first arrived. Individual dinobots are fun to mess with, admittedly a bit small with Grimlock being a sliver smaller than ER Optimus but they're still a decent size with the rest of my chug Autobots so it's fine in my book. Combined mode is also nice, looks great though could definitely use some other piece as heels for more stability, especially with the big ass fuck off swords, which were far bigger than I was expecting. Like, god damn, I could actually stab someone with these if they weren't plastic.
    Unfortunately thumbs on the combined hands are loose, and start to fall towards the other side with the swords inserted, so until I tighten them if possible sword poses are limited.
    Still though, fun set so far, not disappointed with getting it, might one day get the ss86 leader dinobots if they do toy versions of those molds, but happy with this set and glad to have it in the collection either way

    Do what I did and buy a pack of right angle adapters from Nonnef.
    Those will hold the thumb in place while the swords are held.
    @ziltama shows them off on page 83 of this thread.

    Got my set yesterday and I have to say that I really love them!

    Just because the SS train is unloading doesn’t mean that one should automatically pass on this set if they are a fan of the Dinobots or G1 in general, and it’s within budget of course.

    The paint work on the figures is phenomenal, they look so vibrant and toony and make for an impressive bunch on display. My inner child is very happy!

    This is my first experience with the PoTP molds and I’m glad for it.

    A couple of minor gripes, Swoop’s shoulders are quite loose (nothing that can’t be sorted), and Grimlock’s chest doesn’t want to hold together all the time, but I guess it is what it is.

    I’m yet to combine them, but I never bought this set for Volcanicus so I’m in no hurry.

    Guys, just a tip... Be careful if you use slag as a leg in gestalt mode. His peg hole is definitely too thin. Mine cracked when i was posing him. Not too bad, a drop of super glue and some paper fixed the crack, yet...

    PSA: Grimlock’s guns/Volcanicus chest fillers are misassembled. The black gun parts are swapped. I highly recommend everyone pop the guns off of the gold pieces and swap them, it makes them fit way better in all configs. Here are some pics of them assembled correctly. The stock pics for the set also show the correct assembly.

    I've been resisting this set. It's tempting but I already have the normal POTP set and selects swoop. Also I am into the SS86 Dinobots, but the colors on this set make me want it and then sell the POTP set. Which would probably not sell. lol
