    Nah, they’re about Deluxe height there.

    Well, I did say a bit closer compared to their Combined mode, not that it was totally accurate

    I respect that Hasbro let the designers get creative and make things 100% new but I'm still not sold the rock look and I'm not sure kids will want to pay £25 for something that looks like well nothing if you loose the accessories.

    I do like the transformation though I think it'd be cool to see it engineered into a cybertron Evac/LiveConvoy or something else new as it's transformation while not the same isn't miles away from Evac's and it's a neat idea.

    I would rather be happy with a toy I have than be unhappy about a toy that doesn't exist.

    Having a toy that's done wrong wouldn't bring me any happiness at all, it would literally not exist to me. Like those Legends class G1 figures that came out in Generations before those characters got proper updates like Jazz and Trailbreaker. Not point in having something done wrong if the only reason is to "have it".

    Definitely don't get something you don't like. But for me, liking something is very much in my control. The way some people talk, if the figure isn't within X millimetres of the "correct" height based on some internal style guide artifact, the toy is worthless. I like figures to have approximate scale, but in my opinion, arbitrary rules create more opportunity for disappointment than payoff when they're met.

    In the case of Dinoking, he won't fit into the animation-centric collection model many fans have. But a core class figure that mirrors aspects of the Japanese market original toy with improved articulation has its own selling points. For my part, I'm going to skip it too; what I really want is a Monstructor deco and tooling, and I already bought the Dinobots as part of my core G1 lineup. (Incidentally, if they don't stick with that form factor, I might have to go back and get the Legends/Legion figures like the Datsuns and Jazz to have a small scale ark crew. So even toys you see as outdated and irredeemable may still have appeal.) The point being, while I agree with not getting a figure if it's not what you want, there's value in not having too narrow a conception of what that is, especially if it means you end up with nothing.

    I have no nostalgia for rocklords and absolutely would buy updates o7.

    I also quite like the rocks we've gotten in L:U though. So I’m not upset how it was handled.

    oh man i hope they learn their lesson on rushing to do jg1... god forbids the breastforce is as crappy as the dinoforce

    i get that they are core but they don't even have consistent articulation. some don't even have elbows or knees.

    either way i will have to see what accessories they come with and how much remolding. the bugs give me hope they did some extensive remolds.

    remember we all have to accept things on other people's terms or we're just settling

    Yeah get really bored of people telling me the things I like are because I don't have (their) standards.

    Don't buy a Dinoking set from Core Volcanicus. I don't care. More for me.
