POTP Slag Figure Review.

Much innuendo

Slag was actually one of the Dinobots I owned as a younger me, to be specific, I had the G2 green one somehow, perhaps soon after I had discovered the wonders of Ebay and I bought a  not so good condition blue Grimlock (I suspect I got ripped off).  It was at the moment, I discovered that not ALL Dinobots were equal.  While I had played with a friend’s Grimlock, Swoop and my own Snarl while also knowing that Sludge was  very similar to Grimlcok, I had NO idea about Slag. 

Getting my hands on the G2 one showed me that it was not a very good toy.  While the dinosaur mode was (naturally) awesome, robot mode left a lot to be desired. 

This however is not a review of the G1/G2 toy.  I got the Power of the Primes version soon after buying Sludge as I was wondering how he would turn out, after all the bar was pretty low.  Luckily this guy is a pretty nice upgrade.

POTP Sinnertwin review

Sinnertwin (6)
*to tide you over while I work on the translation of Super Megatron comics, read this *

After reviewing Snarl and the other Dinobots, I’m making my way through the Terrorcons.  Each review will have a little bit more gushing about them, as they truly captured my imagination as a kid. 
Despite only owning two.

Sinnertwin here was one I always wanted (along with all the rest).  I mean what's not to love about a two headed dog thing Transformer.  Not hiding in the bushes of love though.  I love his names.  Actually I think most of the Terrorcons got really good names overall.  Cutthroat sounds like a pirate.  Sinnertwin sounds bad and double trouble, Rippersnapper sharp and violent, Hun-grr erm, gluttonous and Blot… Um. well...

Sinnertwin, that’s a cool name hey?
