Following the earlier report of the Platinum Edition Dinobots. We have word and images by way of the ACG Hong Kong show that show the Transformers Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Dinobots will indeed have new head sculpts.

get Voyager-class Slog, who was previously a separate Amazon exclusive! Keep reading to see the packaged figures.
