The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Isn't the answer "Pepperoni and Cheese"?

@  Waspinator : (20 January 2017 - 09:12 PM)

"Oh no, not again."

@  The Doctor Who : (20 January 2017 - 08:54 PM)

What do you want on your Tombstone?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 January 2017 - 08:52 PM)

I summon Mothrally's to champion the cause of a new/old line of discussion!

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

@  Paladin : (19 January 2017 - 08:34 AM)

everyone go vote for Guilermo Del Toro. We need a Hellboy 3 now more than ever. https://www.bleeding...nt-hellboy-iii/

Shrapnel is a Lucanus Elaphus.

Nah, Taco Bell is more like Hedorah.

@  TriBlurr : (18 January 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Taco Mutos

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 January 2017 - 08:27 PM)

YAHMMMAAHOAAHOAAAUGH!

@  Patchouli Kn... : (18 January 2017 - 08:20 PM)

What about Jet Jaguarby's?

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 January 2017 - 08:15 PM)

WENDERA IS REALLY NEAT, WENDERA SAYS WHERE'S THE BEEF, WE ALL EAT AT WENDERAAAAA'S!

@  Echowarrior : (18 January 2017 - 08:15 PM)

No love for Wendera, friend to all children?

@  BlackMax : (18 January 2017 - 07:57 PM)

In the Japanese release, McDonaldzilla wins.

@  TriBlurr : (18 January 2017 - 06:34 PM)

Burger King Kong is better anyway

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 06:21 PM)

No way, man, I have standards.

@  RichardT1977 : (18 January 2017 - 04:12 PM)

Or do a crossover where you team up with McDonaldzilla.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 04:10 PM)

Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

@  BlackMax : (18 January 2017 - 04:10 PM)

That's why we're going to bomb the Breach.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:58 PM)

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

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.
