I always thought I might be bad, now I'm sure that it's true. 'Cause I think you're so good, and I'm nothing like you.

@  Glenn : (30 November 2015 - 11:02 AM)

I assume its a reference similar to the american "states rights" argument

Fourth home?

@  Whirl Maximus : (30 November 2015 - 09:06 AM)

Sugary drink to be taxed in the UK. MPs deserve fourth home for this!

You threw them out the window in a fit of passion. You said you were never going to need them again

Luckily I have a networked hard drive that I copied pictures and about 2/3 of my music to so it wasn't as bad as it could have been

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2015 - 11:00 AM)

I'm sorry.

@  vertigo : (28 November 2015 - 10:25 AM)

So my mac just died so spectacularly that it took the external hard drive out with it. I now has a sad.

@  Glenn : (27 November 2015 - 12:57 PM)

Mine came on Wednesday as well and I also chose free shipping

@  Confuzor : (26 November 2015 - 12:55 AM)

Well, I kinda lied about my friends buying him for me so that I can avoid the "spending money I don't have" lecture ^_^;;

@  GodmasterElvis : (25 November 2015 - 11:32 PM)

That's lucky. I chose free shipping, mine didn't even ship for a week or so, and when it did they just slapped a shipping label on the box.

@  Telly : (25 November 2015 - 11:24 PM)

youre more of a man than i am. i wouldnt be able to wait that long

@  Confuzor : (25 November 2015 - 11:23 PM)

Naw, I'm going to wait for my birthday (Dec 7)

@  Telly : (25 November 2015 - 10:52 PM)

have you opened him? he is glorious

@  Confuzor : (25 November 2015 - 10:25 PM)

My Amazon CW Devastator arrived today! I opted for free shipping and it was supposed to arrive some time next week. NOPE! Free 3-day shipping!

@  Telly : (25 November 2015 - 10:04 PM)

i dont want to see a single glimpse of spidey until im sitting in the theater. if marvel is smart (and they can do it) theyll do it that way

@  Paladin : (25 November 2015 - 08:34 PM)

not good enough! I demand pictures of MCU Spider-Man!

@  BillBarclay : (25 November 2015 - 08:03 PM)

& noone's mentioning the Civil War trailer in this shout! c'mon! give Black Panther some love

@  Mighty Maximal : (25 November 2015 - 04:36 PM)

There sure are a lot of Black Friday Console offers in my neck of the woods nearly £100 of a Ps4 is not uncoomon

@  Paladin : (25 November 2015 - 10:53 AM)

i've been hoping the same for almost six years. even the 3rd Parties don't seem to care about Omega much... :(

@  Shockwave 75 : (25 November 2015 - 10:39 AM)

Hoping for a G1/Animated hybrid Omega Supreme.

@  Paladin : (25 November 2015 - 10:08 AM)

why are there no preorders open yet for Victorion, anyway?

@  Boomhauer : (25 November 2015 - 10:02 AM)

Scorponok is Jeb cuz he has no chance of winning. B ^ )

@  Paladin : (25 November 2015 - 10:00 AM)

so what does that make Scorponok? Ben Carson?

@  unluckiness : (25 November 2015 - 09:59 AM)

I believe that was Victorion in the last ex-RID issue.

@  Rycochet : (25 November 2015 - 09:58 AM)

I don't recall Trypticon ever making an arse of himself demanding to see Optimus Prime's birth certificate. Must have happened during the Costa era after I just stopped caring.

@  Boomhauer : (25 November 2015 - 09:58 AM)

There's Autobots coming in and energon coming out. And I say: We need to build a giant dinosaur wall. #Trypticon2017

@  unluckiness : (25 November 2015 - 09:56 AM)

One's a barely-intelligent walking engine of war that destroys anything he touches. The other is a dinosaur that turns into a city.

@  Paladin : (25 November 2015 - 09:54 AM)

i'm not sure comparing Trypticon to Donald Trump is the best way to win votes... #VoteOmegaSupreme

@  Boomhauer : (25 November 2015 - 09:49 AM)

Make Kaon great again. #Trypticon2017

For more pics, click on the image above

Most Transformers find that smelly, mucky environments clog up their circuitry. Not the half-croc, half-turtle Terragator. He prefers it. Terragator is most at home in the swamp lands and sewers. Part of the Predacon elite amphibious warriors, his specialty is land/water assault. In robot mode, he wields an impenetrable shield, and his hand reveals an awesome weapon.

Robot Mode: I don?t usually start a review this way, but given the last sentence of Terragator?s profile text, I just have to. Terragator?s hand does indeed reveal an awesome weapon. An awesome ass weapon, to be exact. The weapon is the entire hind section of the beast mode, which includes the tail and two short legs attached via ball joints. Twin gun barrels flip out from the tail, but still: it?s an awesome ass weapon. And his hand reveals it for all the world to see. Beware the awesome power of the awesome ass gun. Everything else aside, that?s reason enough to buy Terragator.

As for the rest of the robot, Terragator is a bit of an extremist when it comes to the (then-new) principle of integrating the weapons fully into the alternate mode because if he were to lose his weapons, he?d only be a pretty skinny robot with a crocodile head on one shoulder. Everything else forming his beast mode is weapons, a big shield / turtle shell and the aforementioned ass gun. Well, not quite. His robot legs become his beast mode forelegs.

That?s not to say that Terragator is a bad robot, far from it. Being almost free of beast mode kibble, he is very nicely articulated and can move with the best of them. The detailing on his robot torso is also pretty nice, though a few more colours would have been appreciated. So while Terragator is a robot very much dominated by his weapons / beast mode parts, he?s also a decent and solid robot. No serious complaints and that weapon is just awesome. Did I mention awesome?

Alternate Mode: Terragator?s beast mode is a Fuzor, a fusion of two different animals. In his case it?s a turtle, which supplies the big shell, and either a crocodile or an alligator (the former according to his bio, the latter according to his name), which contributes the head and the tail. The feet could presumably be from either animal, though I think they are more crocodile than turtle.

To me Terragator is one of the more natural-looking Fuzors. Yes, there is no such animal in nature, but looking at it, you can imagine that there might be. The two beasts integrate pretty nicely. The detail work, especially on the shell, is very nice and leaves no room for complaint. Not much in the way of articulation, of course. The feet can move a bit, but that?s it. Pushing in the tail makes the mouth open up, though. So bottom line: a nice, good looking beast mode.

Remarks: Of the many Fuzors, Beast Warriors whose beast modes are hybrids of two different animals, only two made it into the TV series. Terragator was not among those two. Like so many other Beast Wars toys, he?s relegated to background scenes in the IDW Beast Wars comic books and has no other in-media appearances to his name. Still, he?s one of the nicer Fuzors and the fusion of crocodile and turtle works pretty well. That, and he?s got his awesome, awesome ass cannon. There is just no arguing with the awesomeness of an ass cannon, is there?

I don't like his robot head very much and he's a bit boring in robot mode, but I really like his beast mode. It is like Megatron and Snapper were fused.

Beast Wars had a lot of awesome ass weapons, didn't it? I totally agree that Terragator is one of the more natural-looking Fuzors. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if a fossil shelled crocodilian were to be found at some point. I just wished he'd kept his original name of Instigator.

I miss this toy.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.
