I managed to get a complete set of all new Dinobots toys. This has been the first full set of the original Dinobots released since the 80's.

But they also include a feature that has been begged for by Transformers fans since Transformers The Movie. They combine!

Volcanicus is the name of the combined form. And the combined toy itself is massive. Composed of 4 deluxe sized figures and one Voyager sized figure. It's actually on the scale of the original Prediking. But it has full articulation!

I'm really happy to have this. It's brought a big smile to my face.

Why is the triceratops Slug instead of Slag?

It was changed because Slag is a an obcene word in the UK.

I'm not defending it. Just stating why Hasbro changed it many years ago.

In-universe, "slag" is also basically the Cybertronian equivalent of "f*ck", "screwed" and "sh*t". As in "Slag it!" or "We're going to get slagged!" or "Oh slag!"

I didn't like the name change either. Slug doesn't fit the character at all. They should have chosen something else.

I can kind of see "Slug" working in the sense of "He likes to slug/punch people", which being the anti-social one, he did. A lot.
