    I’m hoping we get more parts. Like maybe feet since there seems to be tooling intended for them. Also, I kind of like that they scale well with the Rescue Patrol Team Micromasters.

    Magneous. Now that I’m thinking about it, here’s a photo of him riding a Junkion just because:

    pretty sure the arms come off, and the legs at the knees too, from the look of it. im HOPING the back kibble is removable more than just the blades and i am thinking the shins themselves might come off too.could be a good building bot.

    You don’t understand - Shard IS the candy. Sure, you’re not supposed to eat it, but what’s wrong with a stomach pump every now and then?

    I really like this rock guy. It actually looks good with the rock sitting on a robot instead of the robot being rock like the last one.

    I was initially on the boat of these things being dumb... Rock cars and helicopters? But these are just good nonsensical fun toys. ...... I still won't pay full price for them at the new deluxe rate though.....

    Maybe it's the green doing it, but I get more "Fern-guy" than "Rock-guy" out of this mould...

    I'll take back that Shard doesn't seperate on the basis of it looks like he has a knee swivel which probably means his shins are detachable, and so probably the arms do the same.

    I like all the rock guys, but even just based on picks, I think he might be my favorite.

    The vehicle mode is just stupid.

    The bike and car? Ok. Helicopter rock? Just... why?

    Hasbro doesn't need to reinvent the wheel here: Rocklords turn into rocks.

    I'm rather turned off by all this vehicular pageantry.

    That weapon (copter's engines) accessories reminds me of that now-infamous Dune popcorn holder.

    Not saying you're wrong, but... this is the FIRST time EVER Dino Force fans like me are eating at ALL, so I'll be takin' it.
    But hopefully it doesn't take 35 MORE years for them to make an ORIGINAL Dino King mold...

    What do you mean bro? It's perfect for Haslab Star Saber to go against! :p

    Never settle for less just because it's the only option. This Dinoking is a joke and doesn't deserve to be entertained.

    Who, in the modern day, would buy a 25 dollar no-name toy that turns into a greebly cube?

    As much as I love them, nostalgia is blinding. Recall that Rock Lords failed hard when they first came out. The market for 100% accurate, modern scaled rock lords is likely incredibly tiny. At least, small enough to not dedicate half the toyline to them.

    A fresh homage works, but I can see why Hasbro probably viewed accurate Rock Lords pretty low on their list of necessary toys that needed updating. Even with the 9 bajillion new Optimus Primes…

    It actually scales with Galaxy Shuttle.

    Great, he scales with another incorrectly scaled figure.

    I think what they are doing here is perfect. I'm not looking for a literal rock. No kid would ask for that. These hit the nostalgia button and they are fun. Gimme more.

    The sentiment is sound, but... Eh, I don't think it's really that bad, at least going by the digibash I've seen of how they *could* look, they probably won't be that bad for retools. And I don't really mind these one's being small at all, so they'll hold me over enough until we can hopefully get a new one. (I'd love if Iron Factory did them, though)

    Well, it might be a BIT closer to accurate when they're not combined, at least? Screenshot_20231111_073218_YouTube.jpg
