More Slagging after the jump.
Enjoys melting enemies into pools of liquid metal. Like his fellow Dinobots, resents authority. Disruptive-often brawls with comrades. Shoots 3000 C flame up to 80 feet from mouth. Enormous strength-can shatter a brick building with his head. Uses electron blaster in Dinobot mode. Rash, no too bright. Nasty, mean-spirited…often the other Autobots won’t help when he’s in trouble.
Wow. So we have a robot Triceratops that can breathe fire and is a complete asshole? No wonder I liked him. On top of that, he came with a gun, a sword, and a missile launcher. The missile launcher attached to his shoulder in both robot and dinosaur mode. The sword he came with was bright red, I always thought it looked strange but I guess it was supposed to be some kind of energy sword.
On the cartoon Dinobots were badass incarnate. They talked like Johnny Weissmuller starting most conversations with, “Me, Slag….”. On top of that they didn’t really listen to anyone but Grimlock, their own leader. They tore the Decepticons a new one any time they showed up. Sadly for Slag, Sludge, Swoop, and Snarl their leader was by far the most popular. As the series went on the others were pushed to the background as Grimlock got a larger role.
Slag ran into some interesting problems due to his name. In the UK and some other parts of the world it isn’t very nice to call someone a Slag. Makes his name even more fitting doesn’t it? Hasbro didn’t think so. Anytime they’ve released a new toy based on Slag, like in the newer Animated Series, he was named Snarl. So what will Snarl’s new name be? No one knows, he hasn’t had any new toys. In my mind he’ll always be Slag. Just like Sludge is a Bronto and not an Apatosaurus.
There is no word if the Dinobots will be getting any screen time in War for Cybertron, but I’d bet there is at least an Easter egg buried in their somewhere. Again almost all the pictures used in today’s list are from seibertron.com which is a great site for Transformers fan. You should check them out. We only have one more bot left in the countdown. Who will it be? You’ll have to check back later this week to find out.
