Deathsaurus!!! What a huge villain in the Victory line that was only in Japan. I didn't know much about him until a few years back. It all started with Transformers Earth Wars, which is a game that I am obsessed playing! At the time he was the best bot in the game ( still top 10), and I needed him. I landed him pretty early on in the game with "chance crystals". My point is that he was a must have in the game, so I wanted him so desperately in my collection. I started to look for him only to find that the G1 version was only released, and WOW he was going for some top dollar! I could have gotten him in a OK condition, but I couldn't look at him like that since he's become an iconic figure to me now. I pretty much gave up...In 2019 Planet X released proto-type pics of a MP sized DS that was just amazing! At the time of his release I couldn't afford him. I waited, and waited. He sold out very quickly! A couple of months ago I saw he was back up for pre-order from one site TFsource. He has safely arrived in my possession for a week now!!
This is how he comes standard out of the box. This is Planet X (Ismenios) take on IDW's version of Deathsaurus.
I guess a lot of fans must have complained or pleated for Planet X to make a G1 expansion kit. I wanted a G1 looking DS in my collection, so I had no choice but to upgrade him. He looks even better than the standard version!
The kit consists of a new Dragon head, Wings, Bot head, Gun/ball and Chain.
They are super easy to install. It comes with a little screw driver, and instructions that you can understand.
Since the pandemic all we time for is to shop. Repair the house. Do the projects that you have been putting off for years! While spending we get to a point where we go a little outside of our normal purchases. This time I went a little beyond my TF obsession, and ventured into the G.I. Joe world. I do own a few of the 3 3/4" joes. Hasbro has stepped up in a huge way to give us 6" joes!! At first I was like eh, OK I don't need to spend my time, and money on those until I saw them in person. Incredible!
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 1000+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
