    Me and my brother were into that a little bit, I always wanted a Gigano Dragon and Drago Tigra, but we only ended up getting Dino Saber and Dino Ptera.
    Dangit, now I'mma go look for Gigano and Tigra on eBay...

    I used to get that series mixed up with that Dinobots sub-line in Beast Machines.

    I think I only saw the toys in stores once.
    Should have picked one up.

    edit: you might want to search for "DinoZone" as that was the japanese name for the series.
    A quick two minute google search didn't really tell me much else.

    Love 'em. Never saw the show, but dug the toys--especially the combiner figures. Different aesthetic, but well-done.

    Those were pretty cool. I only have the Trex and Stegosaurus, but I wanted all of them. Maybe at some point I can get them for fairly cheap on eBay.

    I think I have all of the first series of the toys, but never bothered with the show.

    Most of the toys were pretty simple. The only one I really liked was Gigano Dragon.

    I only got Gigano Dragon years ago from a small shop in Norfolk that sold reject/damaged toys super cheap.
    The thing fell apart in about 10 different places along the body. All that clear plastic in the hands of a child was not going to survive.

    The robot mode was pretty lame. Arms and Head were the only things that could move due to the transformation.

    It was a pretty decent series of toys. I still have the Brachio and most of the Ceratopsian Brothers. they had a bad arse weapon that looks like it was made for Grimlock. :) 

    Never could get rid of them though... no one ever wanted them.

    I only have Dino Tyranno, Dino Saber and Gigano Dragon.

    I wish I had more, but there were always hard to find. I loved that toy line.

    Does anyone know if they made a figure of the new version of Tyranno from season 2?

    He was partially covered with spikes and looked more muscular.

    Being a PR fan, anyone notice that Mammoth, Tricera, Sabre and Tyranno all match their ranger colors, either through primary or secondary?

    Ptera is the only one that doesn't, but who wants a pink flyer anyway?
