Kentrosaurus (Jurassic World, Color Change Captivz by ToyMonster) – Dinosaur Toy Blog

With the brand new yr comes a brand new set of Captivz Pop N Lock dinosaurs to gather. For those who’re unfamiliar with what Captivz are, they’re blind bag figures hidden inside plastic eggs. Additionally included within the egg is a bag of slime (the determine is separate from the slime) and a token or buying and selling card with the determine’s stats. Apparently, you’re alleged to battle your dinosaurs utilizing the stats supplied ala Pokémon however that’s of little curiosity to most of us. This newest wave’s gimmick is that the figures (and slime) can change shade relying on the temperature. The included card replaces the tokens of earlier units, however playing cards had been additionally used within the Jurassic Park 30th Anniversary set. The playing cards are cool so it’s good to see them proceed to make use of them.

This new set largely consists of acquainted faces, animals utilized in previous units simply with completely different colours. Issues just like the Tyrannosaurus, Giganotosaurus, and Atrociraptor that will most likely bore most of our readership. There are a couple of fascinating critters although, together with a model new sculpt for Kentrosaurus. The Kentrosaurus, modeled after Pierce from Camp Cretaceous, was the determine that caught my eye probably the most and I’m completely satisfied to report that in searching him down the third time was the appeal.

This little Kentrosaurus measures roughly 3.5” and stands 1.75” at its tallest level. The precise Kentrosaurus is estimated to have measured 13-15’ (4-4.5 meters) so that will put this determine at about 1/45 in scale which could attraction to some scale aware collectors. Due to its small dimension a number of the inaccuracies that Pierce’s onscreen counterpart or bigger toy has are absent or laborious to discern right here. Certainly, this can be a moderately fetching Kentrosaurus with out something value complaining about. The plates are broad and rounded like within the present, however I don’t think about that an offense value complaining about.

The determine is offered in a visually interesting pose with the physique and tail curving in a gentle S curve that makes the toy enjoyable to take a look at from a number of angles. The determine is effectively detailed regardless of its small dimension. Grooves are sculpted into the plates, the physique is roofed in irregularly formed scales alongside the again and torso, and wrinkles dominate elsewhere. Tiny eyes are meticulously painted, a beak is current, and folds of sagging pores and skin are sculpted alongside the torso.

When chilly, or at room temperature, the determine is maroon coloured alongside the again, plates, and out of doors of the forelimbs. The remainder of the determine is cream coloured. When warmed up the maroon parts change to sizzling pink. Fortunately it’s the maroon shade that the determine usually shows. The spikes and beak are painted grey, and the eyes are black. The paint software is great contemplating the scale of this toy.  The Mattel Kentrosaurus measures 12” they usually couldn’t even hassle to color the spikes on that one. This determine is a fraction of its dimension and nonetheless has an entire and engaging paintjob. For those who don’t like this shade, I consider one other Kentrosaurus will likely be obtainable in one other set, however I don’t know a lot about that one but.

The Captivz Kentrosaurus is a fully pleasant little determine and one in all my private favourite Captivz figures. There aren’t many Kentrosaurus figures on the market, which makes this one a welcome addition to my assortment. I personally suppose it’s higher than Safari’s re-released Kentrosaurus! It’s a disgrace that Captivz figures are tied to the Jurassic World franchise as a result of they may most likely make some nice Kaiyodoish figures in any other case. This present wave of Captivz is broadly obtainable for the time being however when you’re not the playing kind your greatest wager for a assured Kentrosaurus could be eBay, or buying and selling with fellow collectors.

With Kentrosaurus figures by Schleich, Famemaster, and Safari.
