FT Scoria (Slag) and two others

Recommended Posts

4th party is just a joke for 3P groups that make add ons/upgrades for 3P groups. And then I read your last line. lol

 

 

I wonder if this guy will have the same shiney and clear bits that the G1 and MP-08 figures have? Knowing FT they will.

 

I also wonder is they will release all 4 Dinobots and if Jetfire was revealed only because there are other groups at the pre order stage for him?

 

Two more quick comments.

 

Love the stream line-ness of this guy and how half the dino isn't hanging off his feet. Great job with getting more narrow feet out of this guy.

 

Are the "wings"/Dino back kibble hanging from his back or arms?

This is super cool, but I would like "classics/generations" versions of these characters. :(

I refuse to pay as much as these 3rd party TFs command.

What scale is this figure? If it's MP then I think I need to sell a kidney now. D: I might have to start selling off GI Joe now.......:tfevil

It appears that with the feet on Grimlock still doesn't outsize Slag BUT he is taller than Prime now and the feet seem to fit in flawlessly. Great job FT,.

So, instead of trying to match a toy that's been around for years now, they just decided to make Slag bigger and make lifts for MP Grimlock?

One plain and simple explanation. MP-10.

 

Grimlock was 08 and made before the new scale attempt by Takara. Why make 4 other MP Dinobots in the wrong size when you can just give Grimlock lifts (for now and if sales are strong make him upscaled at the end)

 

It makes perfect sense and it truly is the most logical course of action.

I see them and all I can think of are the shoe lifts that Patrick Warburton used when he played The Tick in that live-action series.

 

Also, MP-01 is taller than MP-10. I'd rather just deal with a Prime and Dinobots that are the same height than have to give Grimlock lifts for his feet.

IIRC They are free with the Scoria purchase. You can always opt not to use them. Personally I believe the dinobots were taller than the rest. I can live with them all being the same height but would prefer a larger Sludge and a smaller Swoop.

 

Right now, even with the lifts, Grimlock looks too small but I get the feeling if numbers are high enough we will see an upscaled (maybe redesigned) MP Grimlock from FT.

 

I hope Sludge is larger, I can not wait to see if they make him the bigger beast that he is and what he will look like with the rest of the team.

Will Scoria come with a shoulder Rocket Launcher as well? I would kind of expect that to be included since they are MP figures. I dunno how I feel about the lifts for Grimlock either...I kind with they would have made Slag in scale with the Grimlock rather than bigger and "fix" Grimlock. Damn that crazy scale problem that always seems to plague MP......:tfevil
