    I think it's just a branding thing to keep the line alive since they're all repaints. There's currently an "All Star" line in stores that's just old molds re-released.

    What's interesting is that between this and Dinobots Unite, Hasbro is going big with dinosaurs at the moment. On top of that, we've got Power Rangers doing "Dino Fury" for it's latest season and Kingdom obviously including BW Megs and Dinobot while SS86 is pushing out the G1 Dinobots.

    There's clearly some brand coordination going on to push the Dinobots, which makes me wonder if there's something dinosaur related coming next year.

    When is predaking considered a Dinobot?

    They should reissue these, preferably in a pack of four.

    since they wanted a predaking in the line but refuse to put in decepticons or predacons.

    Rescue Bots Academy is indeed part of Aligned and appears to be the final installment of this continuity. Once it finishes airing in North America, we’ll have had 11 years of Aligned cartoons.

    That Blades figure is so good - still have him on my desk at work.

    Great fiddle toy.

    Personally want to see the ankylo shield and bumblebee partner in better pictures cause those interest me. I just love minicons and want to see if they scratch that itch or if they'll be way too awkward or ugly.

    Love that three pack. The two non-grimlock re-colors are incredible but the grimlock is still too close to the original in my opinion. I would\'ve loved if they had done him and green to represent his RID version.

    Clever of Hasbro to redeco Heatwave and Chase as Predaking and Snarl. Might be tempted to get that 3-pack if the price is right.

    Those originally came with "Knight Watch Optimus Prime", and I was shocked to find that there's very little about that release online. But hopefully this helps a tiny bit.

    Amazon Canada listing, with a 360 turnaround video

    A very goofy playtime video, but it shows how the minicons transform. You only need to watch 1:53-2:13.

    The small rescue Dinos would be worth releasing if they - you know "actually painted them" unlike last time where they ended up looking like BK kidsclub toys.

    I like how those Rescue Minicon-Dinos are in reverse colours : that adds a small layer of additionall play value and I can easily pretend they are distinct characters. I am a little surprised they went with the biggest T-Rex mould though and not the slightly smaller one.

    ---------

    Also Predaking - is an actual Antagonist in the line (potentially) not had many of those - other than Morebots.

    It's funny how that Grimlock has been released as Grimlock as Grimlock twice and never as who it was likely intended to be which is Trex. (Doc Green's Guard T-Rex)

    I’d have also liked the Dinobots robot heads too. And the original Dinobot grey, not the cheap grey they used for Cyberverse Sludge.

    Predaking is a straight repaint of Heatwave with no remolding.

    Consider Predaking as Shattered Glass Heatwave who has taken on the Predaking identity.
