    and boy are they ever cheap. I was at the dollar store, that should give it away right therelol, with the wife and i said, im gonna go look in the toy isle (for anything really haha) and well, I found 4 dinosaur transformers. So, being a dollar each i said...why not. I wasn't expecting much for a one dollar piece of plastic lol.

    I was going to take pictures of bot mods and dino mods, but they are so cheap that i moved the brontosaurus' head/neck and it fell right off the robot and all the joints are loose as all hell. oh man, it was funny.

    So, all you get for pics are the package and all four in package lol.

    SO, the package:

    [​IMG]

    well...these KOs are called DINOTRON (as can clearly be seen in the above picture). There are four of them, and unlike the lil catch phrase in the top right corner of the package, although there are 4 of them, they definetly are NOT exciting lol

    [​IMG]

    Top left: Brontosaurus that goes by clever name of........Bronto Tron
    Top Right: Triceratops...........named....Tri Top Tron
    Bottom Left: T-Rex........going by the name of Tyranno Tron
    and finally, bottom right: Stegasaurus......called....Stego Tron

    Unlike the picture, they don't transform into cool robots. The guns/weapons are not removable and cannot be put into there hands. They are mounted and need to be broken off to take off......plus, theres no place to mount them on their hands lol

    haha.......all in all....cheap ass toys, cant except miracles at the dollar store. Do I regret my purchase, not really. It was $4 and some change for 4 bot that sit on my shel and don't look half that bad in dino mode. I'm actually thinknig of rebuying this guys and leaving them MOSC LOL


    Next up: TF KO non transformable cake topers from the dollar store.....there are eight of them from what i could see LOL maybe someone can identify who they represent. One of them looked like Predaking. As well as paint your own robot. A lil robot thats made out of...well im not too sure, looks like ceramic, that you paint yourself.

    These have been around for ages. I've seen these way back around the early/mid 90s. The quality really isn't that good.

    You can still get them in a four-pack at most Big Lots.

    I got mine in the early 90's. The Brachio and Stego, both were destroyed just being removed from packaging, brittle as hell.

    I still have the T-rex bot, while Triceratops bot ended in the trash can because I broke it. T-rex bot is still in great shape, since I bought him in 1994. The best of the bunch. I also loved the artwork for him on the card. He can be a great dino decepticon, I just need to make a name for him. Can someone help me with naming him?

    Disclaimer: The one I have is not the same version as the one pictured above, this one is great quality, came on a black card with some kind of a grid on it, with a big artwork for the figure in robot mode, with instructions on the back plus pictures of other bots.

    I wouldn't call them KO's. More like no-name dollar store robots.
