Picked up Slash the other day and I love her! She’s a fantastic little figure with great posabilty in her robot mode. Alt mode is cute and pretty decent for the size class, only you have to ignore the hole in her side... and the hand-ankles lol. I like that they included a hinge for a snapping jaw at least.
They really nailed the dinobot “look” too, she looks like she’s always been a part of the team.

Wasn’t planning on getting this figure until I playtested griffin’s copy. Slash is definitely the standout from the first wave.

She's like the Autobot version of the Sharkticons, I really wouldn't mind another two.

Is she? I’m curious as to where this take comes from, I don’t get that vibe at all.

I think it is the size and velociraptor pack thing. The image of a bunch of raptor hanging around the legs of a larger dinosaur is pretty common. With the Dinobot themed colours it is easy to imagine Grimlock doing an "awesome" pose with a pack of raptors on guard around him.

Three sounds about right...

ah yeah ok. I see now that you guys meant pack of wolves and not mindless swarm of leggy piranhas.
