The dinobot toys were really

The dinobot toys were really great, unfortunately I can't stand their on screen characters. When the masterpiece Grimlock was announced I was seriously disappointed, I sure hope the next masterpiece isn't based on a dribbling idiot.

I think Slag still wins in

I think Slag still wins in the category of the cutest Dinobot though.

Slag was my first dinobot,

Slag was my first dinobot, and the only one of the original three that I ever had. I loved the toy and loved him on the show for his raw belligerence. He always seemed like the dinobot with the least regard for good or bad; he just wanted to burn stuff. I don't know what that says about me as a kid.

I do have to take issue with the concern over breaking the horns off. As I recall, they are pretty soft plastic (like his sword) and also swivel freely. You'd have to really try to break them off, and while I managed as a kid to break half of Snarl's head and one of Swoop's wings, Slaggy was always rock solid. I do remember spending a lot of time lining the horns up straight, though. So I guess if I was a pyromaniac as a kid, I was also a very anal-retentive one.

Look, I don't know what to tell you. When I was a kid, I totally broke a horn off my cousin's Slag.

Of course, I broke basically ALL of my Transformers as a kid to one degree or another.

Say, may I ask what happened to the rest of the comments? I could've sworn I've posted a question. I hope I didn't come off as disingenuous--did I?

I removed something else and looks like I accidentally took yours with it. My bad. What did you ask?

Yeah.. all I said was that I've felt kind of confused when you replied to Prometheum5 saying that Slag is a good toy, but Sludge and Grimlock are better. The reason for my confusion is you said the review that Slag is better than Sludge in regards to it's realism in dinosaur mode. Then in the next paragraph, you said that "Sludge" is not the greatest of the dinobots but he looks great in dinosaur mode and pretty good in robot mode. Another plus is that this toy was reissued in Generation 2 w/ apple read and green?

G2 Sludge in red and green?.... My 1st question to you is were you referring to Slag or Sludge?

My other question is that in what ways are they better than Slag in your opinion? Do you mean that they're both badass in Robot Warrior modes w/ weapons or something more? Your clarification would definitely help my confusion sir.

Ohhhh. My bad. I meant Slag was available in red and green. Let me go fix that.

I meant Sludge has a great robot mode but a kind of bad dino mode, Grimlock has a great dino mode but a kind of bad robot mode, and Slag has an okay robot mode and a pretty good dino mode.

Thanks Sir

Thank you sir,

now I understand what you meant by that. BTW, don't feel low about the error. We all make errors too. I've typed the word "read" which is supposed to be "red" from my last comment. Even the best of us make mistakes & rectifying them is a testament of being the best of champions.

You sir are that champion which makes it honorable. :)
