    If this truly was a G1 set, then the Dinobots would be in a closet in the Ark.

    Well they did a good job polishing those turds. But I am willing to pay for that playset/box/diorama separately. Thats the real gem of the set.

    Not likely seeing as he's scheduled for an August release according to BBTS but who knows.

    Personally I'm halfway tempted to skip toxic Snarl if I can pick up this set off HTS, you can see the details so much better in the SDCC version with all that not clear plastic

    Must have. That is awesome. The box, the paint, the chrome. No complaints.

    Yeah, gotta agree. They went overboard with all the chrome. The gold chrome looks nice, but all the silver chrome on top of that just makes the figures really tacky looking.

    I like the box, but would toss away the the spikey dickbots.

    Maybe someone can mass reproduce the package cheaper?

    Lol! I thought he might be a new dinobot I didn't know about.
    Anyway, voyager Slog is a much better match than Scorn.

    With all the people in here wanting the box/diorama separately I am tempted to see if anyone wants to work out a deal and one of use makes sure we get it but I pay the majority of the cost just for the figures.

    Hell, if someone can get one just for the box I would buy the figures off to recoup their costs. Wife would kill me but have a few weeks to save up.

    Those G1 colors...wow.

    Something about Strafe having an odd mix of Technobot and Dinobot colors is hilarious.

    That's just Prime. I like it. Not enough to beat someone down, but it's a very cool attempt at a combo of papercraft and G1-esque stuff.
