    Ok, here we go.
    I finished them (well.... almost) and here are some pictures and explanations:

    First of all: All the parts of one model.

    and another shot in which you can see most of the magnet locations.
    The rider is glued to the mount in a way so he doesn't prevent the head from being attached.
    You will also notice that I marked the parts with a black marker (in this case an "I" so I see which parts belong to which model) 20180921_194829.jpg


    The assembled Terradon with the Bola....

    The arm is slightly longer because it isn't thick enough to drill a hole for the magnet into it. So I just painted one magnet bronze like the wrist band, and one blue like the arm. 20180921_195035.jpg


    ...and with the Javelin.
    I messed up the shoulder a bit, and the model has a few visible seams. On the table they are almost invisible though.
    The little square metal part on the arm is the sawblade part for the Ripper rider's shield to attach to.

    The Skink's arm is not attached to the ring naturally, but it is assembled in a way so it looks like it is, at least from most angles.
    Keep in mind that most of the time that model is viewed from above. So if it doesn't fit perfectly seen from below that isn't as severe.

    And here is the Ripper.
    As mentioned earlier the Ripper has the Terradon claws on the wings. It is not impossible to make them interchangeable, but it is tedious and IMO not worth it.

    And lastly here are some more detail pictures of some of the attachable parts:

    The flying stand is made of a metal rod, and I sawed off the tip of the original part.
    It is not glued in, the tail parts just have a small ball of poster putty in them.


    So I hope this helps if you want to build convertible Terradons/Rippers yourselves.
    If you have questions, just ask. :)
