Another member of the third-party dino-combiner has shown up on ACToys. This time we get a look at a prototype version of the pterodactyl team member in both modes along with the previously seen t-rex and a member of the Star Cat Rescue Team combiner. Images have been mirrored below.

That's not bad, not bad at all. I'm going to have a tough time deciding to display these guys individually as my classic dinobots or together in the combined mode.

need to see more pics to make a proper decision.

If that isn't meant to be Swoop then it's someone who looks exactly like him.

Wow. These are looking really good BUT I'm just taken aback a little by the rumor that they're Hercules size. While a giant dino combiner is an awesome notion, dropping $1200 for the pair of them doesn't sound awesome at ALL. Was hoping they were Power-Core size and compatible.

While there may be different teams or people working on these... I agree, it would be really nice to finish one project (or put up pics, pricing, etc.) before flaunting two or three more. That kinda makes the fandom lose hope.

Maybe I can put a Star-Hovercraft together with Exgraver and CrazyDevy Devastator and make a finished Autobot-Spike style combiner until they all finish putting out their parts and limbs. Eh? :-?

At least the pterodactyl looks like a real Dinobot. Won't with the planned colors, though.

This would be tempting if it weren't for Devestator, even with the right colors. Not down for two huge combiners at the same time.

yeah, I think I'm only considering these guys if they do the actual Dinobot colors. (and Protectobot colors) If that happens, they're going to be hard not to buy. Really hard.

I'm not gonna lie, the sort-of-Dinobots are tempting, but I will need to see more.

As far as I'm concerned, until TFC finishes Hercules, anything else they do is irrelevant. Unless reports come back that Exgraver is poor quality...then everything they do is irrelevant.

Same. It has a lot of potential :)

Well, the QUALITY could be crap (and I'm waiting to see the reports on that)... but the sculpts look to be really nice. Detailed and nicely proportioned... with decent transformations.

So yeah. If the reports come in that they're well made, my wallet is in serious trouble.

I'm already sick of Star Cat.

Btw, Star Cat should not be news any more than images of new Power Rangers. And this dino combiner is pushing it.

I'm not familiar with Star Cat (aside from these prototype images) is it a separate series that these guys are just making something for?

I think the dino combiner is news until it's shown to definitely not be in G1 colors. Swoop, at least, looks TF inspired.

The other, not so much.

I agree the Star Cat stuff isn't news, which is why they aren't mentioned in the headline. The Swoop figure is posed with one of the Star Cat toys though, so I figure it's just easier to acknowledge them than have people asking what that figure behind Swoop is.

That's a pretty decent Swoop. I'm interested...

Star Cat - with PowerCore link points! (news) :APPLAUSE:

Star Cat - with its own connectors and odd sizing (not news) =;

I don't know anything about Star Cat, and doing a Google search didn't help, but that transforming fire truck looks awesome! I'm WAY more into that than just little bits of news about a dino-combiner.

If new info about the fire truck isn't going to be posted as news, then someone needs to tell drop me a PM about where to find out more info about it, because I seriously like what I see. I WANT that fire truck! lol ;)

I'm no expert, but I'm sure that that's supposed to be Optimus Prime. Though I know absolutely nothing about Star Cat Rescue Force (Whatever that even is. :-( ) so maybe I'm wrong. What I do know is, I'm confused. :oops:

From what I've picked up on the InterWebz, Star Cat is some sort of Chinese show (anime?) that has characters like these.

Apparently it's rumoured that these may see mass production in China due to the popularity of the show, which may be good on our wallets if true.

Personally I hope they're done sort of like the Protectobots.
