Dino Riders Brontosaurus

bronto1

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.

The Brontosaurus even trumps that extremely awesome T-Rex in my book. This thing is bigger than some real life dogs!

    I never had these growing up, but from the articles you’ve posted they are awesome. It would be great if a company would revisit this line.

      These are all really cool toys. They can be a bit pricey these days though and I agree with you, it would be sweet to have some modern updates to these. I wish it could happen.

    I never heard about this one growing up, but I saw it for sale at the Long Island Toy Show last July. It was sealed in the box and had the original Toys’R’Us price tag of $79.99 on it. The seller was looking for $1,500.00 for it. My first CAR cost less then that. He didn’t sell it at the show, as Insaw him at Eternal Con last weekend, but he did manage to sell it online. That must’ve been a pain to ship.
