    What IS That?!?!

    Ok... This one may be a bit trickier as I have no picture.

    I was wandering around a flea market today and saw something pretty awesome.

    It was a bipedal figure, I would guess about 12-15 inches tall. It had a triceratops head with a hinged jaw that would open. Seemed to either be wearing some kind of armor or possibly cyborg.

    It's right claw was translucent orange and seemed to be like it was on fire... and on it's back was twin... 'things'. Silver in color, if I were to GUESS, I would say they were Jetpack engines? They were kind of on swivels, and at first guess I was thinking laser blasters, but I don't think they would aim well for that... so I'm leaning toward jetpack.

    Now... Honestly, at first glance, this amazing piece of awesomeness seemed to combine EVERYTHING I ever loved into one sweet looking action figure. Would have LOVED to have He-man fight THIS beastie as a kid... But really, I never heard of this line or recognized it in the slightest...


    (Ohhhh and just when I thought it couldn't get any cooler... reexamining the mouth made it look like there was a rocket hole in his mouth.... sooooo yeah. possibly add 'fire breathing' to the cyborg/armored giant dinosaur with a jetpack....

    Dinosaurs for Hire and Dinosaucers both had orange, bipedal triceratops characters. I don't think DFH ever had a toyline, though...

    Triceratons from TMNT tend to be orange but I am not sure of any that were made at that scale.

    Slag of the Dinobots sometimes has a firebreathing feature, but not sure of any of him that don't have the ability to transform and at that size.

    There was another knock off line that was called Mighty Warsaurus. That could be it, but they were only 4 inches tall

    Yup, without pictures it's going to be nigh impossible to know what you saw.

    Closest I can make of what was described as well. Here's a link to Spike. There was also a second version, apparently.

    I think it's kind of fun that we don't have picture. I mean, this isn't some generic army man or barbarian.

    This is a 12-15 inch bipedal cyborg triceratops with an orange translucent hand and rocket firing mouth. That's pretty specific. It's big. I'm no toy expert, but I know a lot of useless toy and pop culture trivia, and I'm stumped.

    Did this thing look vintage, or newer?

    There was another collection from Bandai that was called DinoZaurs and triceratops was called Drago Ceratops, but was a sort of dinobot and they have some translucent parts. There was another one with a name like Toro Dino or Dino Steranko

    Not quite, but it might as well not have.
