    To honest, for little kid toys, that ain't bad.

    I really like the Ankylosaurus to Tow Truck figure.

    If I had a pre-school son, he would be getting the whole line.

    What should they be ashamed about? They look pretty well done. Certainly less to be ashamed about then, say, Michael Bay.

    These are all very well done. I like how the digital screen goes from being the drivers to being the Dinosaur's eyes. Very clever.

    If these were shown to me and I was not told which company produced them, I would have guessed Bandai or Tomy. They have that look to them.

    Also, I wonder if the little vehicle on the back of the Brachiosaurus transforms into anything?

    Even though these are children's toys....they're still pretty cool-looking.

    Well it's a giant robotic dinosour who turns into a truck named ATTILA! It doesn't get more badass than this. Well may be if you put a Chuck Norris action figure in it to drive.

    I am curious about the electronics and if these things possibly transform automatically.

    Hahaha. They look so much fun. I wonder if this will pass as a purchase for my son.

    I bought Horns the Triceratops for my baby girl, she loves it.

    No automatic transform, but its dead simple, swing the back ends down, tail down, raise head, flip open the bonnet, lower the orange horns and open mouth, done.

    There are four buttons, sound, speech, volume and selection. Sound activates either dinosaur or car noise (depending what more you're in gives you different dinosaur roaring or tyre/engine noises), speech activates phrases, and again depending on the mode you get dinosaur talk (dino attitude 'I'm really strong!' interspersed with dino facts) or car phrases ('turn my wheels!'). Volume does 3 different volume settings (just the thing for young ears) and the selection button chooses between 3 different car drivers or dinosaur eyes.

    The toy also has a motion sensor in it, so rolling it around in car mode evokes screeching tyres and engine sounds, moving it as a dinosaur gets stomping noises. The engine and tyre sounds are the same as the sound button (I think) but the dinosaur stomping noises are different to the sound button in dinosaur mode. Its actually a very well designed and fun toy, I might get the Stegasaurus for her too later on, so we can race them around together on her playmat.

    So yeah, ridiculing these is kinda out of order, they're not Transformers but they're not pretending to be. If anything these are massively superior to the equivalent kiddy aimed toys (Rescue Bots) that Hasbro produce.

    Pretty rad for toddler toys. I wish I had toys that cool when I was a baby.
