Renegade Rhetoric[edit]

While stranded in the multiversal hub of Axiom Nexus, Cy-Kill worked to rebuild his power base with new Renegades. Gore Jaw was part of a group of Predacons camped out in the Heap that confronted Cy-Kill during his exploits. After Cy-Kill defeated their leader Fright Face in single combat, the Predacons became loyal members of his Renegade force. Cy-Kill even used his old Puzzler technology to give the Predacons a combiner form as Monsterous. Gore Jaw and the others traveled with Cy-Kill back to his home reality when he abandoned Axiom Nexus. Renegade Rhetoric Cy-Kill and his new recruits emerged in the midst of an epic battle between the Guardian fleet and Rogue Star. As Monsterous, Gore Jaw and his team gleefully tore through the surprised Courageous before turning on the Command Centers. Unfortunately, Leader-1 tricked Cy-Kill into firing a killing shot at him, which he dodged so that it hit Monsterous instead. This respite allowed the Guardians to retreat, but the Renegades had clearly won the day. Opportunity Knocks Part 2

Cy-Kill dispatched Gore Jaw and the creature warriors to Philadelphia as Monsterous to draw Courageous out for another battle, but Monsterous was overwhelmed by a squad of Guardian Boomers. Six Heads are Better than One Cy-Kill brought Monsterous to an ambush to try and seize a matter transmutation ring, but the surprise appearance of Courageous made it a fair fight, and so the Renegades retreated again. One Born Every Minute When the Guardians and UNECOM came to Quartex to sign a tri-planet alliance treaty with Boulder's Rock Lords, Cy-Kill and Magmar decided to intervene. Monsterous and Puzzler were pitted against Courageous and the Fossil Lord's Fossilsaurus until Cy-Kill tipped his hand and revealed the Renegade Power Suit Warrior, Nemesis. Combiner Wars Part 1 The forces of good rallied, however, and prepared a counter-strike. Monsterous was diverted into battle with the Action Shock Rocks, leaving Courageous and Fossilsaurus evenly pitted against Nemesis and Puzzler in the rematch. Combiner Wars Part 2

Toys[edit]

GoBots[edit]

Monsterous[edit]

  • Gore Jaw (GoBots, 1986)
    • Giant Monsterous Leg
    • Accessories: none
Gore Jaw was released by Tonka in the third series of GoBots, and converts from robot to flying monster jet thing in 4 steps. The toy shares a mould with Eyegos from the Devil Satan 6 set in Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos toyline, with a different light blue primary colour scheme; it is unclear which was the original release. Gore Jaw combines with his team-mates Fright Face, South Claw, Weird Wing, Heart Attack and Fangs to form Monsterous; Gore Jaw nominally forms the right leg, but can be used for the left if desired. Individually, he has no significant articulation; while he has pins that allow his shoulders to move, Gore Jaw's arms only have a very limited range of movement, and all of it parallel to the body only. Like the rest of the Monsterous team, the rear of his card featured a character biography, while the instructions were printed on a separate leaflet.
  • Gore Jaw was made available during the third series as part of the Monsterous assortment (#7301) and remained available for the rest of the line's life on toy shelves.
