    I don't think there will be any kicking at all.
    These figures will be selling at TFC's online store, and also some toystores across the country (China, that is).
    You won't see those toys in any other place.

    I kinda think the combiner is Bruticus. The truck /torso has the dual cannons and similar head to Bruticus. The right arm makes me think of Blast Off a bit, and the right leg reminds me of Swindle...

    I don't care about the combiner, but Swoop has me intrigued. Grimlock... maybe.
    I will definitely have to keep my eye on these!

    A dinobot combiner with similar proportions to Hercules would be epic

    WTF like others have said it all comes down to paint schemes, if it looks anywhere near g1, TFC can take another 600 from my pocket

    So, which way are they playing this.... Are there going to be two different versions of "Swoop," one Dinozaur-like, and the other traditional G1? The earlier drawings looked like two. I think there were two different versions of "Slag" also....

    Bruticus ain't made out of futuristic rescue vehicles.

    Nor is he made of piloted by a bunch of anthropomorphic cats.


    None of these guys are intended to be canonical Transformers.

    It's right there in the first page (and the title) people: These are for "Star Cats".

    From the size difference of not-Grimlock to not-Swoop, if they are indeed combiners I would say they would be in line with the traditional Scramble City type combiners (1 big torso bot and 4 smaller limb bots).

    Take my money now TFC. TAKE IT! I don't even care if they combine or not. I just want new Dinobots to add to my classics/henkei/generations/united line. And since Hasbro couldbn't be assed to go beyond classics Grimlock you're my only hope now for a complete set... :bowdown:

    I guess Dinobots were kinda a no-brainer to follow te constructicons, but personally, I was hoping they'd do the Trainbots next.

    I find it hard to believe that the guys that brought us Hercules would make such crappy Dinobots.

    Well having seen the CGI of what these guys will look like as robots unless a major redesign has gone down no amount of paint will make grimlock look g1 and the same can be said for a few of the others.

    Hard to believe that people can't even read the first couple of posts.

    Or the thread title...


    They're inspired by the Dinobots, no doubt.

    But they're not supposed to be the Dinobots. They're part of a toyline for a Chinese animation (?) production called "Star Cats".

    I know what they're based on. We've known for a few months now. They're still crappy.... regardless on what they're based on.

    Also, should this be in Transformers news forum.

    Wow incredible...they really don't play fair. I need to get devastor and the dinobots! I need at least two grinlocks! Let's hope they don't make black repaints or they don't combine.

    I'm getting a Machine Robo Rescue vibe from these guys. I like it, but these won't be cheap enough for me to give the line a shot.
