The Complete Ark looms large! I've got about three weeks to integrate the two volumes together, clean up any mistakes, and pick a few bonus pages to insert (we don't need two copyright pages, for instance, so I get a few extra pages). In that spirit, some more pages from The Ark Addendum. This week, S.O.S. Dinobots.
As the episode that introduced 60% of the Dinobots, it naturally loomed large in my mind as a child. I used to VHS record the 'arc' episodes, so this was one of the few that I was able to review after the show went off the air. I thought it interesting that only three of the Dinobots were built here, with Swoop and Snarl saved for War of the Dinobots.
As far as the models themselves go, I rather like the dinosaur fossils. The memory upgrade unit never really excited me - I guess I would have figured it would be something subtle, something INSIDE the cranium perhaps. It also slightly bothered me that the Dinobots didn't have them going forward. Maybe Wheeljack later developed a smaller, internal model.
NEXT UP… RETCON!
