As immediately predicted following Slug's reveal, Strafe comes with the pterosaur Mini-Con mold in G1 Dinobot colors. This seems to indicate that the Energon Swoop mold may go unused, leaving Evolutions Grimlock with no one to unadvisedly combine with. See the pictures below!

Speculation has been high since the reveal of the Grimlock Evolution two pack featuring movie and Energon Grimlock. Today Slug's set has been shown for the first time, and it's probably not what anyone expected! Featuring AOE Deluxe Slug, and a G1 colors version of the triceratops Mini-Con mold representing "classic" Slug. These fit together on a card and may be closer to Deluxe price point, but with no visible changes to Slug it's hard to say whether the demand will be there. See pictures below!

Seemingly hidden at the moment is the scope of the integration of the truck cab to the robot form. All we can tell is that the backpack seems to at least emulate the shape of the small robot's legs hanging from the back as on the original G1 toy. Check out the image below!
