Today we are going to look at three of the new Deluxe Class Dinobots.
Strafe is a flyer in his dino-mode. In robot mode, he continues with the medieval armor appearance. The two beast heads work in the front to create strong shoulders and a pretty good look.
This Strafe is from the Toys R Us Exclusive that comes with a Mini-Con of the same figure (a redeco of Swoop). It is the same Strafe figure, but just with a little extra. There is one other out there as well, I think it might be Slug.
Talk about your epic pose. I sure hope we get to see Strafe do this in the movie. How bad-ass does he look with his wings out? Pretty sweet. You can really get a sense of the great armor he has. The gauntlets on his forearms are awesome, as are the very strong looking legs.
And then we get to his dino-mode. A two-headed pterodactyl. This once again makes me question the reason to deviate so much from a standard dinosaur. Ah well.
There is a lot of articulation in the wings that allow for some pretty good poses, instead of having to stick to the strait wings we get a lot of times.
I really like the overall design of Scorn. His beast mode is pretty fantastic. From the tall sail, to the long tail, to the head that moves back and forth.
I don’t love it when Transformers only have one usable hand. I would rather like to see a second hand rather than a tail for a hand, but if you are going to be one hand short, at least his tail is huge and makes for a great weapon. And what is better than one weapon? Two weapons. His tail hides his sword that he can use to make a little extra trouble.
Dinobot Slug –
Who ends up with a name like Slug? I expect to see this guy sleeping through the whole movie. He is a pretty good interpretation of a triceratops. Only a few added parts to give him a little AoE extra.
I think Slug really shines in robot mode. Strong and powerful is the name of the game. Two swords wielded in very strong hands. He looks to be quite a force.
There you have them, the first three Dinobots. I still haven’t seen any Decepticons. They have all be Autobot from the get go. Of course we don’t really know much about the enemy from the trailer. We know they are coming to eradicate the human race, but who are they? Guess we will just have to wait and find out.
