    Mildly disappointed that they didn't Swoop Dino head chest him but apart from the wing orientation just about everything else is on-point, a whole lot more remoulding than I expected (loss of the thigh ports does make me a little sad though), plus a free golden disk is quite the sweetener on this safety order!
    Curious where his wee blaster stows in both modes?
    Absolutely called the Mutant Tigatron Face Turn - to no one but myself!
    And the classic What If-type ending of EVERYBODY DIES (except Puffer) in the act of "correcting" the timeline!
    Ah, Road Ranger, Jackpot, & Sights, we hardly knew ye!

    Well the Pterosaur mode is so awful my scientific brain made me order him….. But he looks fun enough to justify joining his boss

    Mr Terry Saur is ordered.

    Robot mode is decent, dino bird less so but it's always going to be one of those that's compromised by the inability to cheat physics. I like the fuglyness of the pterodactyl head as it adds to the evilness :D

    Whilst looking for something else I stumbled upon this little oddity tucked away behind the legs of Metroplex that I completely forgot that I owned.

    It, uh... it doesn't quite stand up to the SS'86 version in my opinion... No laser nipples, for one thing.

    Well, that's Terrorsaur booked with Amazon!

    He turn out about what I expecting, a nice mix of the OG toy and cartoon model. He will look perfect next to the rest of the cast.

    That's a lot of fucking preorders to drop in addition to the Wave 4 stuff landing shortly. Makes me really glad I picked up that Ghostbusters Prime :lol 

    Time to throw on that red light and work for my money again.

    Also; less than 2,000 backers until Victory Saber's V-Lock Cannon is unlocked. With more than 10 days to go, I think that one's a certainty.

    Considering I thought getting Tel-boy from Airrazor was going to be a terrible idea (nothing in common except they both have wings) the Bot has come out way better looking than I was expecting - always allowing for an eternity of listening to whining about the back wings being the "wrong way up".....

    His Dino head was pretty ugly in the cartoon so I'm good with that. Overall not bad at all.

    I’m glad he doesn’t dino head in the way that Swoop does, it wouldn’t work for the show appearance they were going for

    I did say "mildly". ;) 
    He'll certainly do for recolouring into "Maximal Swoop" whether Hasbro take up that gauntlet, or I have to do it myself!

    Just done what I have seen most people have been doing here over the past hour or so, pre-ordering Terrorsaur (I’ve chosen to use In Demand Toys, myself)

    None of the other reveals are of any interest to me, and although I seem to remember some one telling us it was coming in the GDC I wasn’t sure we’d see a character as mainstream as Terrorsaur revealed tonight.

    Also, as someone said, I’ll get to have a golden disc as an added extra.

    I wonder if Terrorsaur's Golden Disk accessory is a corrected version of the Vok Disk, or if it'll still have the 'The Sounds of Earth' details on the back like the one that came with the Ark.

    I guess with Terrorsaur that we know what the next crossover could be MV5BNzQ0MTgxNjg4NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjY2Mjk3NjM@._V1_.jpg

    Seems to be the same as the Ark's Vok Disk...

    ...but this remark...

    ...makes me raise an eyebrow, as well as the spectre that that may be the wrong disk in his gallery, and he'll actually come with the Voyager/Earth Golden Disk.

    Thats just Prime.

    Not completely happy with any of the pictures but I'm not sure I want a permanent massive set up at this point.
