    He's an odd in between size, that's why I don't call him a Voyager size.

    Yeah, that's why I didn't get one. The size isn't right for me.

    But your picture really illustrates how much Generations Deluxes have diminished in size over the years, doesn't it? I mean, especially compared to that original Sunstreaker mold.

    Eh, he has them upon a mousepad, not as accurate as it could be.

    I think that's the wind-up Eggbot Egg-timus Prime, rather than Mr Potato Head but still a cool find!

    On a recent visit to see family yesterday, I discovered these in B&M, a discount chain here in the UK:

    The torsobot is missing, eh?

    The green rook is the worst of the bunch, red first aid is next up, then the torsobot is pretty good, but that streetwise mold at that size is a beautiful thing... It's my new goshooter.

    Great find, I'd be tempted for another 3 carbots.

    I dunno, that green Rook could make a good Generations Bulkhead or maybe Roadbuster (for those that didn't love his last update)?

    Shame there's no AB/Blades among them. That would be very convenient!

    The green rook can't point his arms forward, total letdown when I got him. Only swing out to the side.

    I think the pictures didn't load from my last post. Some KO Dinobots from a Kuala Lumpur Super Market, about £4 each.

    I thought it was some TF term I hadn't heard of, I was tempted to be like 'Yeah totally Drumstick' to hide my ignorance

    I still can't think of a link between Hot Wings and transforming cars. I guess it must be some misplaced reference to Hot Wheels. These guys are also relatively expensive. The bigger deformation Dinosaurs were two thirds of the price.

    I'd buy the he'll out of those dinobots if they weren't movie colored. Don't care for the Combined mode.

    Combined mode?! I didn't see that. Must be hidden by the sticker on the back. I was wondering what 5in1 referred to.

    I'm with you for the movie colours. Fanta Grimlock especially. I'd like to use the T-rex as a BW Megatron. 'm wondering if the T-ex head can be hand mounted as a cannon. I really like the Tail splitting to become a shield. That would have been a great match for Transmetal Megs instead of the weird steampunk Scissor claw thing

    It combines into some big dinosaur monster... thing.

    They look cool on their own, and might would be a nice custom paint project.

    They are all about $35-50 shipped to the states, though.

    What scale are these? The ones on sirtoys are deluxe, but I once saw the swoop at a flea market and he was a voyager. Lady wanted 30 usd for it so I reluctantly passed.

    Yeah, we were just talking about this set in this thread a few pages back, weren't we? I have the grey/blue version of this set, and the quality is quite good. The combined "monster" mode is just sort of a fan-mode that took off after the initial release... the proper combined mode is a humanoid robot, as in Paul's pics above. The individual limbs are definitely Deluxe-sized though. I've never heard of an oversized version!
