    Isn’t it weirdly satisfying to pare things down? Good on you.

    It’s odd but, I think the most satisfying thing I have felt in a long time

    I had a G1 Skullcruncher when I was like nine. It was the coolest thing in the world. I was ecstatic when the Titans Return version came out, but having it in hand, it left me cold. This guy though, I adore.

    They're near-identical, weird right? I think, probably, because I had Skullcruncher when I was nine... what I liked about him was his stupid kid-appeal gimmicks. His head not only came off and turned into a guy, but it sat in his crocodile mouth when he was in beast mode, it was the coolest thing imaginable to me at that age. I have a strong memory of also having a Horri-Bull, and also liking Horri-Bull, bit also scoffing a bit at the fact that Horri-Bull's head guy only sat in a weird carved-out cockpit, not something awesome like a crocodile's mouth.

    Anyway, this version doesn't do that. It's not even a headmaster. But it does do something stupid and awesome that, at nine, I would have loved, which is really the emotional box I'm looking to tick with a Skullcruncher over any specific features.

    An energy crocodile head forming over the robot head? The jaw can flap open and closed to reveal his robot head? Oh yeah. Dumb as hell, and unbelievably cool.

    In the interest of fairness though, child me would have dinged him points for his main crocodile mouth not opening properly. Child me put a lot of thought into these things.

    Does anyone know the reason for the offset “button” on the chest? It’s on what was the lower jaw of the original toy dinosaur, but that looks like a faux piece on this figure. Just curious why designers elected to add the detail, when I can’t find any precedent for it.

    No idea. I just assumed it was meant as an homage to the G1/Diaclone figure. Personally, I'm curious if there is a lot of customs, or a variant out there. I've seen a lot with the dot painted red

    I’ve seen the red dot, too. That dot may be on the Diaclone toy— I’ve never seen one, to be honest. I don’t remember it on my G1 toy, but it may have been covered with an Autobot sticker.
