Earlier today we received notice of the Platinum Edition Dinobots set. We are now learning that this set of figures will have new headsculpts to give these figures even more of a G1 / Classics feel to them.
We’ve mirrored the images for your viewing after the break, thanks to Hobbybase for the original images.. Head on over to our discussion thread to continue the talk.
So is this online exclusive?
On the fence about this set. I don't have any figures from these molds and I really want Dinobots for my Classics/Generations.
I'm a fan of most of these molds, and the paint job/new heads look great. That being said, I just can't get into Grimlock's dino mode and Slug's bot mode. I was this close to buying them during that sale, but those two held me back.
I actually need a Slag for my AoE Dinobots. FoC Grimlock is my stand-in for AoE Grimlock, but I don't know what to use for Slag.
Yup totally agree. A totally fine set but not worth that big price tag.
Got mine this week. It's a great set that I would never buy at full price.
You know while the set may not make a good G1 Dinobot set,I think they can actually work somewhat as Beast Machines/Transtech versions of the Dinobots since the bodies and head styles could work enough to fit into the BM/Transtech universe.
I was actually considering a trip to Windsor to grab these. Now ordering made easy!
oh wow, I realize there wasnt an update on this thread. These were actually part of a black friday deal in canada where TRU was selling them at 75$US (100$ cdn) a set. That was a awesome deal.

Did you take those photos? They put a lot of Hasbro (and even Takara) stock photos to shame.
You'd buy it for 150?
pls come to the US
I found the set in Kingston, but I couldn't reason with myself to spend 200$ for this set, as I have already the movie version. If that 25% off applied, it was an instant buy…
Yeah, that's pretty expensive but judging from the prices they put the Coneheads and Trypticon at here in the UK, not surprising. I'm loving my set.
they best be giving away the new devastation game with that price!!!! WTH?!?!
They're up on TRU Canada's website:

TRU must have been smoking all the crack when they put the price tag on these guys. And it must have been some goooooood stuff.
They're out in Canada now, as a Toys"R"Us exclusive:

These guys don't look too bad with the new heads…still not what I want, which is actual Generations Dinobot molds.
