Right.
I'm a big fan of the ol' London Natural History Museum, right, and tend to pop in whenever I'm in London. Today I had to go to the Japanese embassy, and was done much earlier than expected, so naturally I went to see the dinosaurs.

They always had a little section about dinosaurs in popular culture, and among that display was a cabinet with some robot dinosaurs, featuring a prominent G1 Grimlock.

But it's gone :(

Boo. Do they still have other robot dinosaurs in there? COuld be any number of reasons - refreshing the displays, or something more silly like a curator objecting to such pop culture nonsense or , God forbid, some brand manager wonk not wanting their product associated with anything that isn't officially sanctioned.

Nah, the whole robot dinosaur box, along with the whole toy display, was gone so I'm guessing it was a rejig, rather than Hasbro demanding Grimlock was removed but Zoids being okay.

Clearly this was organized by terrorists, possibly Isis.
