We’re back at last with another new gallery update. We’ve still got a few more Dinobots left to showcase, and we’re kicking off with a look at the Power of the Primes version of
The Dinobot triceratops flamethrower is an interesting one. On the one hand, he is a fantastically detailed release, who nicely updates the transformation of the original Dinobot to recreate both modes of the original character, including the “robot head in the mouth of the dino head” that really defined Slag back in Generation 1. As Hasbro advertised, the combining peg is also (mostly) hidden, so you can ignore that facet of the design if you choose. On the other hand, Slug feels undersized. His robot mode really feels like it lacks a little bulk that you’d associate with the Dinobots, and while the triceratops mode looks good, it feels a bit small.
Overall, not my favourite release in the Power of the Primes line to date, but it is the first genuine 100% update to the 1984 Slag since the Classics line started and it does look good when used as a set with the other Power of the Primes Dinobots. Check out the gallery for over 100 pics of this Dinobot flamethrower whose name we can’t keep straight.
