I'm getting these my only problem is that these Dinobots are 10" tall which is over a inch taller then MP-08 so Fanstoys will either make their own Grimlock or there better be a upgrade kit to make MP-08 taller.
I made this comparo pic just to have a better idea :
If it's a 10 inches, this is what we get (QuakeWave is about 13 inches tall) :
Are you sure Quakewave is 13" tall? I am pretty sure that it is no bigger than 10-11" in height. In that comparison picture Quakewave is only a little bit taller than MP-08 Grimlock. And if this FT masterpiece Slag is 10" tall and is only up to Grimlocks chest, then it is okay and kind of in scale with MP-08 Grimlock. This FT MP Slag in reality is taller than MP-08 Grimlock. Which is why MP-08 is out of scale and is too small.
But like Chen, I remember MP-08 Grimlock being shorter. And MP-10 Optimus @ 12-13" ? I though it was only around 10" tall or so.
Fantoys makes awesome products, there Shockwave is as good or better then some Masterpices. Also MP-10 Optimus Prime is around 9.5" tall, Fantoys Quakewave is around 9.25" tall. MP-01/04 is around 12" tall. So this Slag will be taller then both MP-10 and Quakewave. And also it states that Slag will come with extra parts to make MP-08 almost as tall so I'm guessing it will come with lifts for the feet to make MP-08 taller.
Mmmmh. I will correct the scale compare tomorrow.,, If they are releasing MP Dinobots, I just hope for a whole set, that means sludge need to rocks the party too.
isnt this considered a KO??? since its not an official release from Hasbro nor Takarra??? but i must say the details are just fantastic......
Unofficial 3rd party yes, bootleg yes. KO, NO. The difference? If this was KO, it would cost less than $50. In order for it to be a KO this has to be released by Fantoys first and then some cheap company comes in recast all the parts and assemble them cheaply with poor paint apps and poor QC.

I just love how the rear beast leg stored very tidily inside the Robot Mode's legs. A lot of cues were taken from MP Grimlock's design it seemed.
More facts I learned about this as I'm reading the TFW2005 Forum, excerpts were taken from dalianjj, FT representative.
- Price is going to be about USD 200 - FT-04's mould has more than 100 parts compared to Quake Wave's mould - Head height is 25cm,total height with dino head hood is 27 cm - It's going to include extra parts that will make MP-08 stand (nearly) as tall as FT-04! - There are news that the factory that made the KO MP-10 plans to release an upscaled MP Grimlock next year!!

I was excited at the news of extra parts for MP Grimlock (and them making more Dinobots, of course), but platform shoes don't really cut it. Grimlock no Lady Gaga. Not sure how they could have done it right. It would need at least a larger head and bigger hands. Though that wouldn't make it taller. Unless we open up the beast to swap a few limbs, I guess we'd really need a new Grimlock.
That said, if they look good together in dino mode, it could be very hard not to grab a set. $200 a piece is a bit much, though.
I always hate its right hand : close fist only for a led gimmick (lighted sword). Edit : The shot angle is hidding the shell-wings attached to the back. These are a the whole dino mode flank. Ok it's G1 toy/anime accurate, but if they can give a folding solution to reduce them a bit...
mojacko: mighty quie over here...not much discussions going on.

mojacko: Arkham Batman is always one of those games i wanted to play but never had the chance to. Always playing NBA2k & Dragon Ball Fighter Z with my teen kid who beats the hell out of me....lol

S_Gokin: i really dont recommend it (unless you found it dirt cheap) both Arkham asylum and Arkham city are bad, story wise and gameplay, didnt try Arkham knight yet, but im not sure i will, if they kept all of those annoying things from the early games

mojacko: OT...whats up with funko pops? some say its a collectible but i dont find it appealing except for others value changes.
Jul 18, 2019 13:10:12 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Anything someone collects is a collectible. They aren't my thing but between licenses held and the easy entry cost-wise it's fairly easy to see why it appeals to a majority. It's just unfortunate that they've consumed so many booths at toy conventions over

mojacko: think its a hype thing i dont see it will last through the ages its like a re invention of the head knockers thing.
Jul 22, 2019 9:04:33 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Well any "popular" collectibles revolve around a certain amount of hype but I think at this point Pops have even outlasted the amount of time beanie babies were a thing and I think the seemingly endless licenses will keep them afloat for some time because

KumaStyle.com (TJ): realistically they're diverse as hell, I personally just wish that convention vendors would vary things up a bit more.
Jul 23, 2019 22:51:38 GMT -5
mojacko: i doubt the value will sky rocket when the hype dies out.
Jul 24, 2019 13:57:52 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): That pretty much goes for the second hand value of anything.
Jul 24, 2019 14:52:37 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Actually, yes; we're in the process of moving out of our home and it's valued now at significantly more than what we paid. Obviously there are a million and one variables and just like collectibles things like care and the like factor in.
