    Long story short. Got some Hi-quality Dinoforce KOs, but the inner robots are miniscule!

    Could anyone out there measure the inner robots for Doryu/Scowl and Goryu/Icepick?

    ANY help is appreciated.

    They are the smallest original combiners that can demand the most money....Not worth the money too imo. In combined mode they were around 1/2 to 2/3's of the average G1 combiner.

    There are some nice oversized KO's out there too. Some elbow grease, a bit of paint and VOILA! a decent sized Dinoking!

    Thank you, all. I appreciate it.

    I think - I'd have to look more - but Takara shrunk down the Monster Pretender robots (and redeco'd, obviously) beyond their already miniscule sizes?!

    Just wanted to make sure that these are the original sizes before I continue collecting these nice KOs.

    I have seen the KO O/S Dinoking, and it's nice, but I think half of the attraction is the Cyber-Dino shells.

    Thanks again, everybody.

    Where can I buy a dinoking KO? I want one, if they are original G1 size and color. Does it come with the pretender shells too?

    tfwiki says that the combined mode is around the size of G1 hot rod and each individual robot is the size of a micromaster. tinyyyy.

    That's because they're repainted from monstructur who was a micromaster combiner.

    Yeah, each inner robot is only slightly bigger than a Micromaster - kinda like a thick minicon.

    I was always more bemused they (individually) transformed from "block-thing with a head standing upright" to "shorter block-thing" or "block-thing on four legs"

    I might never touch Monstructor again, thanks to GPS :(

    Actually got some pieces of Monstructor in a lot last week and they are smaller than I expected. Really had no interest in him before, and after checking ebay listings, I really don't have any interest in completing him now. Gonna have to take some pictures and list those things in the near future.

    No, the size was unchanged.

    Right you are.

    Both the Monster Pretenders and DinoForce are equally miniscule.

    Doesn't mean I won't try to complete my (bootleg) Dinoking. The fidelity is incredible and for a while they seemed to be everywhere. Loving the cyborg dinosaurs.

    I would buy Dinoking just for the shells.
