    Without Satanus, Old One Eye, or Golgatha in the top five it is nowt more than list fail.













    2000AD really did have the best Rex characters :D

    And how did I forget this messed up Rex from DinoCrisis 3






    Loved the Dino Crisis series. :D

    Gwangi wasn't on the list either, fair enough Gwangi wasn't a tyrannosaur but Megatron ???



    From the start of Godzilla Vs. King Ghidorah
    Yasuaki Shindo (played by Yoshio Tsuchiya) was a military officer who, while facing from American forces in 1944, encountered a dinosaur on a deserted island near Japan. The dinosaur defeated the Americans and the Japanese troops escaped unharmed. Ten years later, a nuclear bomb mutated the dinosaur into Godzilla. - I'm still not sure if the dinosaur was mutated, perhaps it and Godzilla are different ?

    I think Gwangi is supossed to be an Allosaurus.

    Terrible list IMO. The JP T-Rex is 5th place?? How is that even possible?

    And I think the male T-Rex from TLW is even more badass than the original. Say what you want about TLW but when I saw the movie at age 9 I thought the San Diego rampage was about the most epic thing I had ever seen in my life.

    Also, the one from the original Fantasia dinosaur sequence. It had three claws on each hand but was oficially a Tyrannosaurus, and as cartoonish and cute as it may look nowadays, this sequence defined the picture of dinos and the Mesozoic in the minds of many:

    I have a couple of Megatron toys up in the loft. Great things altogether. One of them fires missiles, squirts water, the lot! Think I prefer teh one with the jet pack though. You can't beat a flying T. rex with a D4 accent...

    IIRC that dino did later become Godzilla. I think he was a 'Godzillasaurus' to begin with.

    If you are suggesting that the JP Rex deserves to outrank Sharptooth I will take you out back and fight you...

    Bloody Fantasia. Spent much of my childhood having to explain to other kids that T. rex and Stegosaurus never met only for them to cite a Disney cartoon as proof. It was like the time I had to explain how an octopus was not a fish, but that's a different story...
    :mad:

    Oh I don't know. I think a G1 Grimlock with a scouse accent trumps that.

    "Me Grimlock la"

    That would explain why they made his arms bigger as the series progressed.

    yes,
    but at least Gwangi was a creature of flesh and blood, a theropod .

    And no mention of calvinosaurus

    Or this awesomeness

    Bring it on! :pac: Sharptooth was awesome but the T-Rex from JP was just the REAL THING! (At least back then to five year old me :cool:).

    In terms of making a real dino, yeah. I don't think any recreation of a dinosaur on screen before or since has matched the T. rex from the original JP. I don't mean in terms of scientific accuracy mind - just how convincing it looked.
