    While this doesn’t have the incredible cockpit that the PE set has, this kind of looks nicer. Plus it’s a single set as apposed to PE’s seperate sets for hands/feet and torso/weapons.

    Ok, this i'm definitely getting, at least until we get an OS KO version. Where can I buy these?

    Looks like Perfect Effect has some serious competition now. Maybe they'll lower their prices as a result.

    Quick comparison: TDWvPE1.jpg TDWvPE2.jpg

    I'm liking the TDW much better. If it stays grey the colours are more unified....but I still like the dinorider/cockpit PE has.

    You’re a winner just by giving Swoop his missiles.

    Perfect Effect doesn't look that good anymore. It still is good but now it's number 2

    I’m not sure how different the hands are, though it seems TDW’s may also be more detailed.

    But, the feet are definitely better, with much more molding on the toes so it seems like ‘Cani actually has talons.

    Also, PE’s got more plating on the crotch guard, which looks weird, while the more distributed additions with TDW look so much better.

    Still, I think PE might have the bigger sword, though that might also be because it breaks down into melee weapons for all the Dinobots. And, of course, all credit to PE for keeping this idea going.

    Then again, I still think I’d rather wait for an Iron Factory Volcanicus.

    However, if I saw the PotP Dinobots on sale in a year or two, I’d probably get this.

    This is great, depending on price this might be a must have.

    I have the first two DW kits. Those feet are easily the worst of PE, KO PE, Computron/Baldigus, Victorion and DW for CW-compatible feet w/some kind of ankle tilt. The rest of their Bruticus kit is pretty dope, though. The Defensor one is flawed but passable. I think the DW Volcanicus kit looks a bit better than PE (and provides a ton of extra weapons), but the PE one seems sturdier (replacing parts instead of adding more on to hold things together). Leaning sticking w/my PE pre-order, but may change my mind. Or wait for a Volcanicus redeco/retool and just get the DW kit for that figure :)

    It doesn't look like a piece of garbage anymore!

    I'm really torn now. I wanted to get some OS Dinobots for the combined mode and the official ones for their individual modes. Now it looks like it's going to be other way round, which is a bit ridiculous.

    I like this set a lot better than Perfect Effect's, including the single piece combiner sword and the individual Dinobot weaponry.

    Hopefully, there's a Terrorcon set on the way, as well.

    They certainly do. In any case Volcanicus now looks awesome, if a bit undersized. What a difference a decent upgrade set makes.

    I might get this purely for the weapons. I couldn't care less about the combiner parts.

    Glad I didn't preorder PE's. The weapons are what gives this one the edge, now fingers crossed the price is reasonable.

    Think I'll stick with PE's kit. Grimlock needs new legs/forearms badly and TDW doesn't deliver.

    That looks awesome overall. I think a mixture of this and the Perfect Effect set would be... perfect.

    Now someone KO all of these sets, Dinobots included, oversize them, improve the shitty parts, and I'll actually buy them. :p
