Author's Reflections- Comics #493-495





The first Knockoff characters I was eager to bring into the comic was a group called the Fossilsaurs…the toys were from a Japanese-dubbed cartoon called Dinozaurs (Dinozone in Japan) which aired in the early 2000s. The toys are actually pretty fun and of decent quality, so I tried to explain that they were earlier denizens of Knockora-Offina, playing up the fossil aspect and ther quality when compared to the cheap plastic and design of other Knockoff toys I used.

The story here is very straightforward but I ended up loving Grimlock talking to them in dinosaur mode and that their leader, Sharptooth, trying to eat the others.

Also Grimlock’s bombshell that arguing over something stupid, ESPECIALLY toys that are intended for children, only makes both parties look like idiots was dedicated to everyone who can’t see past their own opinion.
