I can’t help it - some G1 Transformers have a special place in my heart, and the Dinobots even more so. There’s just something that was awesome in ‘84 about robots that turned into dinosaurs and kicked ass. As a little kid, I wasn’t really into trucks or planes or cassette players (even when they turned into robots) but HOLY SHIT I loved dinosaurs. So, when the Dinobots came along I was smitten with kid toy envy of the worst kind. 🦖 These two particular Dinobots - Grimlock and Slag - were the coolest to me. Alas, as a child, I never had them. I could only gaze at a small handful of lucky friends with cold green envy as they enjoyed the awesomeness that was PURE DINOBOT RAMPAGING DESTRUCTION. After all, the Dinobots were the most metal of all the Transformers. Sure, Megatron turned into a weird ass gun (vastly improved when Shockwave pimp limped onto the scene) and there were a bunch of fighter jets, but these dudes were dinosaurs with savage monster voices that did nothing but fuck shit up. These were not diplomats. They were negotiating no peace treaties. They existed purely to smash things and kick the crap out of Decepticons. Maybe Autobots too if they got in the way. They were basically the Hulk listening to Slayer in dinosaur form if those dinosaurs then turned into big ass robots. 🦖 Like I said, I never had these dudes when I was a kid, but I have them now, thanks to @fartoys_vintage (Slag) and @toyvomit (Grimlock) - thanks dudes. GRIMLOCK SMASH! 🦖 #grimlock#slag#dinobots#transformers#g1transformers#hasbro#robots#robot#ROBUTS#robotsindisguise#autobots#decepticons#morethanmeetstheeye#toys#vintagetoys#80stoys#1980s#80s#vintagetoycollector#vintagetoycollection#vintagetoys#toys#actionfigures#robots#robot#ROBUTS#youvegotthetouch#retrotoys#thetoysthatmadeus#itcamefrombeyondplanetx
