Today we have renders of a pair of their upcoming combiners cassettes. You might want to compare them to the G1 characters Dial and Saur. The brontosaurus will probably be recolored as not-Sludge and Fullstop. The other one will be recolored into Shift. Shift and Fullstop will form the combiner called Reelthing.
Fullstop and Shift are potentially part of the upcoming Dinominions set, a team of fan-made dinosaur support cassettes for the Dinobots.
Included in the pictures are the G1 Dail and Saur toys, and concept images of Fullstop and Shift.
