As a kid I really loved Dino Riders but I never got to own all of them. Some like the T-Rex were always on my want list but I wouldn’t own them until i became an adult. The same goes for the largest dinosaur in the entire toyline, the brontosaurus. This thing is huge and dwarfs the other large sized dinos like the previously mentioned T-Rex and the Diplodocus.
The Brontosaurus was originally planned to have the electronic walking feature that some of the other Dino Riders toys had but this was scrapped due to what was already going to be a pricey toy. It still is one of the coolest, if not the coolest, dinosaur in the line. This thing is loaded with guns, bombs and even a few smaller flying dinosaurs that hang around on the Brontosaurus’s armor.
Mine is in great shape and is nearly complete but even with the few pieces I am missing it is one impressive toy. The detail on the dinosaur itself is top notch just like the work on the other dinos. Tyco really put alot of effort into sculpting these toys and that still stands out even after all these years.
You can load the Bronto down with figures. They can sit at every weapon, two figures can sit in the cockpit, figures can even hang on the sides if you wish. There’s no shortage of space for the heroic Valorians to ride upon this awesome mount.
Weapons can cover the Brontosaurus from every angle. The large armor piece at the top of the dinosaur is loaded with weapons and there are even lower guns on the front legs that can rotate all the way around.
This isn’t the easiest Dino Riders toy to track down and it definitely isn’t cheap when you do find one but if you love the toyline then it really is worth the investment. The Brontosaurus even trumps that extremely awesome T-Rex in my book. This thing is bigger than some real life dogs!
