Lame Toys with Alex, Part 3: Dinosaur Mutants!

If you ever had one of those transforming egg toys that open up and unfold into animals then you know what these are. They come in Diplodocus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurs, and Pterodactyl flavor. For our purposes here we’ll obviously be looking at the T-Rex.


One thing to note that makes these things even better is the back of the box which encourages you to “COLLECT TEM ALL!”. You’re also got to love that “MULTI MOVABLE JOINTS” is a selling point.

So here we have the egg mode, which rather than being the classically ovoid shape is more of what you’d get if you’d given it to a 10th-level Fleshwarper. It looks like the little guy’s tucked into himself and gone to sleep, aww.

The dinosaur mode isn’t shabby at all with its deep green and yellow detailing, and look at those tiny little arms! They don’t even move, they’re just molded straight onto the thing’s chest. As if old Rex didn’t get enough grief about them already.
