Joes but between Transformers and Star Wars they have been my modern day collection. Salute to all you owners. Hobby Ark Toy Store View attachment View attachment View attachment View attachment View attachment View attachment The toys look great but I don't use the hand parts as My First Diaper accessories.
They look much better used as buckler-style shields. I find this whole concept of screen accurate toys amusing considering the toys I had when I was growing up. The Box said it was Bumblebee and I knew bumblebee was on the cartoon and that was good enough for me. Yeah, but times and standards change. When a kid can look around the toy aisle and see toys that ARE screen accurate, they're going to come to expect that they're all screen accurate.
You may have also only had 5 channels on a small CRT TV growing up, doesn't mean kids today are going to be ok with that. SOME kids don't want a Grimlock unless he's green or looks like what they see on the screen on tv or the movies! So SOME kids will not want them". But when there is little to NO media tie in for the toys I am left scratching my head on what market they are exactly aiming for.
I am not going to comment any more on this. We are just going to have to agree to disagree on this. Not going to hijack this thread arguing about it. My kids don't know who Grimlock is unless he's green! So no other kids will, or want them", I just disagree.
Well, I was originally just replying to the guy complaining about the Dinobots saying voyager sized should be the baseline minimum. I get that your point is basically "There's no media! Who are these for?? You totally missed the point in what I was saying and quite frankly it is not worth my time replying to this anymore.
Robocop wasn't a movie for kids, but you can bet a hell of a lot of kids saw it and bought toys from the line made specifically for them. I saw the first 3 live action movies under 13 and I sure as hell wanted toys of them. And yes the designs may be different, but they're still robots that turn into dinosaurs that are grey, so I think most people can make a link, even if they're like 5 or 6 years old. Are you really trying to argue that kids don't want transforming robotic space dinosaurs?
No matter what they look like? Ok, different designs… Uh, so what? The movie Dinobots don't look like the Rid Dinobots and neither of them look like any of the others. Are you really trying to imply that no kids will want these?
And it ain't just because of us. This is the final toy line in the Prime Wars trilogy. Kids AND collectors are primed I'm so sorry and ready for whatever is coming out. Totally different designs, and 2. And if they are over 13 years old then are they really buying toys still? As someone who grew up on G1 and Cybertron cartoons, I was eager to try and make out which characters were who in the new movies in relation to the old ones, to moderate success. BUT its a 10 minute thing for 10 eps only on an obscure internet tv thing, yes it gets a little better exposure when they do put it on you tube.
Maybe for us it will but kids. Plus that show isnt entirely kid friendly. And again, completely different designs, Kids do not want a toy that doesnt resemble what they see on screen. Back to my original point, Who is hasbro making these toys for? I would not be caught dead letting my kids watch those movies before Kids know a green grimlock, they know rescue bots can turn into dinosaurs, they really have no clue what these 80s designed dinobots are. Unfortunately tho, A LOT of parents took their kids to see them, that's why they kept making so much money, so many sequels, and so many toys.
All of your arguements about them not looking exactly as they do in whatever media is moot. Robot dinosaurs will never NOT be popular with kids. No matter how much collectors either try to ignore or want to believe it's not the case, we are but a drop in the bucket in terms of total sales. They're on t-shirts at school, on lunch boxes, back packs. I've seen at all my local stores that they are the first to fly off shelves while Jazz, Dreadwind, and everybody else linger.
After that of course kids will want to get the rest. Hasbro knows what they're doing sometimes, heh. Even if they did a 5 voyager box set, they still wouldn't sell as well. It'd take up more valuable shelf space instead of easy to restock pegs, and we've all seen how trying to get Trypticon, Chaos on Velocitron, etc at retail has gone for a lot of people….
They're probably going to be in the Power of the Primes show that's coming out later this year. They may be in the Bumblebee movie out this year but probably not and they may be in TF 6 that's in the works rn. Kids know who the Dinobots are. My stepson is 7 and knows, and my 3 yr old daughter knows. Neither of them watch Transformers. No media tie in , makes it quite difficult for kids to care. The Dinobots were in the last 2 TF movies. They've been some of the most popular TF characters since the very beginning in the 80's.
They're in Rid too, right? There's even Dinobots in Rescue Bots sort of. Sorry for the typos, my phone sends misspelled words.
