    Shard looks green and leafy.

    Instead of Shard, maybe they should have called him Chard.

    I like the colors and all but these rock guys are almost as bad as the fossilizers were for me. Maybe worse actually as that had the nightmare fuel angle.

    I’m starting to like these things despite myself.

    Still wish they just turned into rocks instead of rock-encrusted vehicles, though. The only way I can rationalize it is that they are Rock Lords visiting the Transformers universe who cobbled together vehicle modes so that they could blend in… poorly.

    Well Hasbro at least you didn't call him, "Shart".

    So, the robots in disguise aspect works .... how in this case? If they travel back in time to meet the Flinstones? Not even then because those used Pterodactyls for flying. :D 
    I was all for new Rock lords, but these just don\'t look like anything really, they are not rocks, they are calcified vehicles... which is weird considering those vehicles under the rock look like they are made of metal. 
    I find these just as unappealing as the Fossilizers.

    For the sake of entertaining this otherwise forgetable figure. The only Helicopter based Character I'm waiting for is Blue Bacchus, which would need a heavy retool shaving that crappy rock texture from the mold to give him a decent look.

    I mean come on! Deathsaurus needs some "Victory" based Con's to command like ASAP!

    IIRC the transtectors in SGMF were originally disguised as rocks until they sync'd with their godmasters (one was even mined for ore and built into a vehicle). They could be transtectors that gained life but were stuck in partial rock form.

    Well... the Gobots visiting the Transformers universe all took on Transformers styled bodies... Maybe this is what happened when the Rock Lords fell through the portal?

    In any case, it's not like we have any accompanying fiction to tell us anything about them, other than "Infernac Universe". Even that can be easily tossed aside.

    Maybe these rock guys are another Quintesson experiment, like the trans-organics. Yeesh, somebody really should clean out the sublevels of Cybertron...

    At least the Fossilizers could potentially hide in a museum or at the bottom of a tar pit. Yeah, I really just don’t get this subline either. It feels like they’ve run out of ideas for the Weaponizer style toys. From what very little I know of Inhumanoids, I don’t really get how they connect to that franchise either. There were “rock people” in that show and from there you get rock covered robots?
    Well, at least we should be getting Dinoking by end of year if the rumors prove true. Personally I’m hoping for a Thunderwing that gets retooled into Black Shadow. Unfortunately I fear that ship has sailed for now since we don’t seem to be getting anymore Pretenders.

    Shard is another figure in a long line of figures revealed for this year that I can pass on. I don't have the desire or energy to trash it. It simple just isn't my cup of tea.

    you know this would’ve been more interesting if he was actually made of rocks like the first infernac guys instead of being a robot covered in rocks

    Yeah! Its not like Transformers has EVER abandoned the "Robots in Disguise" aspect of the franchise!

    What's next? Giant metal dinosaurs?

    Or giant metal lions and eagles?

    Or futuristic guns and cars that don't exist on Earth?

    Or giant purple insects?

    Or two animals fused into a single creature?

    Or...

    Well I hope they didn't hurt their fingers posing it in so many poses.

    Still looks like a cool figure. Great colors.

    I love how all 3 of the Infernac characters look! My favorite thing about them is that they all have unique color schemes & vehicle modes, makes them all standout as unique individuals even amongst each other.

    Though I do agree with how awkwardly these guys fit in with other Transformers, it really isn't that hard to headcanon simple stuff for them. I think the best way to rationalize it is that they were all Protoforms that were lost out in space & drifted off to some barren planet wasteland that's nothing but canyons & caverns. They awoke after having landed & just adapted their physical forms to the environment, only instead of being Techno-Organic like BW characters were on Earth these Infernac characters are more.....Techno-Mineral, if you will.

    If I really had to nitpick I think the only thing I really don't like is that Magneous has just regular old windows on his body. Those stick out like a sore thumb, I would've preferred if they looked more crystalline like Shard's cockpit, ya know? But other than that I adore these things & can't wait for more!

    Ugh. What an ugly design. You could paint that thing brown and call it shart!

    I want nothing more than to take a cartoonishly large bite out of them, the color scheme looks delectable

    This guy looks decent enough to be considered.

    Not bad
