    This guy was a lot of fun but boy that frill really ate me up. Right now it serves as a weapon and as a set of wings. anyway here is a bio for predacon chemical warrior REFLUX. just wish he didnt have dinomouthcrotchsyndrome

    Reflux does not work for Magmatron because he wants to or because he believes in the pred outlooks. He is honestly scared to death of Magmatron and so does what ever he is told to do. Reflux hates to fight and has no problem with the maximals, in fact he once tried to befriend dinobot but knew that the other preds would destroy him. Magmatron keeps reflux busy in a lab creating new chemical weapons and researching ways to give the preds the upper hand. Reflux will rarely ever attack another bot but will involuntarily hurl a mix of caustic chemicals from his mouth when he feels scared or threatened. Most maximals know just to leave the poor guy alone and have no problem with reflux. Primal even promised him a full pardon if they could get him away from Magmatron. Reflux does will a two blade frill blade. that is possibly the weakest weapon ever held by a transformer.

    371 - TRICERATOPS BOTS (12 inches might be too big)

    373 - STEGOSAURUS BOT (Also might be too big)

    374 - BRACHIOSAURUS BOT

    Does anyone have good pics of these... I think I found the rest of the Classics Dinobots...

    the ONLY thing that I don't like about this one is the dino head standing right in front of the robot head. shame they didn't do anything about that.

    I agree, but changing that would have really messed up his transformation and alt mode. im gonna get another one of these(different dino though) and see if i can fix some of those problems.

    Sweet colours! And I love reading a good original bio too so well done with that!

    I picked up one of those Dinos once, strictly for the weapons. Can't say I liked the figure too much though but it's always good to see someone make something good from them!

    I suggested wings; not gonna claim I was the only one, but I remember you sayin' you mostly wanted a shield...

    I'm glad you took the wings into consideration, it looks better imho.

    The only way I can see you gettin' rid of the head/neck would be to try to figure out a way to set the head on the neck in a rod hinge (so it could fold backwards) & leave the lower jaw in place (this would also make a hidden hinge, as most of the JP figures had a joint in the same place); and try make it a leg.

    But I know nothing of the x-formation of this bad boy, so I'm not gonna say it's do-able, but it's my only solution.

    Would say you could try this & split the head, but that'd trash the alt form & that's no good.

    Great to see your results on this one, I kept waiting to see your results.

    I suggested the wings, though I'll not say it was just my idea.

    The only way I could see getting rid of the crotch head (nope... too easy...) would be to turn the head into a foot.

    The easiest way I see to do this would be to add a twist waist, ball-joint the neck (making it a leg), the adding a hinge on the upper-jaw, to allow the head to flip backwards like a Reach commercial.

    But I haven't done anything that complicated, so I can only imagine how hard it'd be...
