    Real-life velociraptors were about the size of a medium dog. Like, ~3.5' to the top of the head, at best.

    The man-sized things that Jurassic Park popularized were actually deinonychus. Or possibly closer to utahraptor, even. Pretty visually distinct from real velociraptors. Size aside, velociraptors had smaller, flatter skulls, like ostriches with teeth. Deinonychus and utahraptor had the bigger, rounder skulls like what we're more familiar with from the movies.

    I've been telling the same, somehow people think the earthrise seeker mold were better. I suppose because it's bigger. If it were better, I would have bought it.

    Yeah Jurassic park lied, velociraptors are tiny in real life. Also, pteranodons are basically entirely wing and have very little mass in their bodies. Neither Slash nor Swoop should be a leader based on reality. Not that the SS86 dinobots are in any way based on reality, but still.

    Bummer that we'll never see a commander Sludge.

    That's exactly why I say Slash should be deluxe. The Dinobots aren't realistic dinosaurs, so having unrealistic sizes for their dino modes isn't that big a deal. Hell if we wanted to talk realistic dino modes for the Dinobots, Grimlock and Slash would need feather detailing or something (I don't think they should, but BW Megatron and Dinobot on the other hand...). Either way, the fact that Slash's dinosaur is a very small one compared to the others is why I feel she should be small, but not legends/core class, that feels too small. She's still an ass-kicking Dinobot.

    Plus introducing a bunch of new smaller Dinobots means they've got new guys they can mix in to assortments.

    I’d love a G1 style Scorn.

    Be a great way to reuse that Grimlock with some remolding.

    Tyrannosarurus Rex didn't have feathers, that debate ended.

    it..... didn't, though. the current reconstruction is guessing that it's fairly likely adult T. Rex didn't have feathers, but it's far from settled; we still only have a couple small, sparse patches of scales, far from concrete evidence that the whole body was featherless, and the most recent study that made the completely featherless idea popular again seemed to be actively intending to establish that, rather than just following the evidence where it lead; that doesn't mean their study is bunk, but it does mean they perhaps drew overreaching conclusions given the still incomplete evidence we have

    Still wish we had gotten a toy of the Decepticon Dinobot from RID2015, Skowl. I liked his design and character.
