Whenever I want to go to BBTS or TFS sites I make sure to use the banner ads here. 8^)

@  Dracula : (31 August 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Speaking of ads, I have adblock turned off for allspark and I've noticed the top banner ad on the forums tends to be broken. Today I don't see it at all. Might just be me though.

@  Kalidor : (31 August 2016 - 01:28 AM)

Clicking on ads and visiting sponsor links helps keep the lights on, if you want a cheap and easy way to help.

@  Plokatron : (30 August 2016 - 07:25 PM)

Whoop I'm back and been a way for a while. But I'm back and I'm going to try to stay with the forum more often. Also to anyone interesed I just made a update to my Sprite topic http://www.allspark....shop/?p=3325815

Peter Ostrum should return in a new Chocolate Factory movie where Charlie Bucket is the 60 year old owner planning to pass his Chocolate Factory to a lucky child as Willy Wonka had done for him all those years ago. Obviously it wouldn't be based on any existing story, just a new continuation of the original without being a remake.

@  Bass X0 : (29 August 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Duckman is indeed better than Beast Wars.

@  Telly : (29 August 2016 - 01:12 PM)

well i went to dollar general looking for the beast wars dvd. didnt find them. but i found something BETTER: seasons 1 and 2 of duckman!!! and for only $2.95!

And Aloha Darth Vader is a Fairy type.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 August 2016 - 09:54 AM)

Yeah, and Alola Form Sith are fire-type.

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 August 2016 - 05:37 AM)

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

@  Rycochet : (29 August 2016 - 05:20 AM)

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  unluckiness : (28 August 2016 - 09:33 AM)

What, you don't find Sith robes attractive?

@  Pennpenn : (28 August 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Anyone else getting Muslim dating sites turning up in the ads? I mean, talk about mistargetted adverising...

@  Telly : (27 August 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 August 2016 - 09:26 PM)

No no no, ~finger~prints!

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

@  Bass X0 : (26 August 2016 - 04:39 PM)

Your spouse's brother is a PRIEST. If you were supposed to get hit by lightning, it would've happened by now.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 August 2016 - 11:31 AM)

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Did I put garlic or holy water in it or something?

@  Dracula : (26 August 2016 - 07:45 AM)

Cake? My only weakness! *bursts into flame*

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 05:15 AM)

Happy Birthday! *rolls a giant cake into the Shoutbox*

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 August 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

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.
