#666 of Year 2 Bone Age Dynacus

Dynacus is the first "vehicle" of the line.  It's a vehicle in the sense that it's not a creature, although it's arguable.  Welcome to the fifth day of Bone Age week.

The first thing I noticed on the box was that the name was in a big font, so that's good.  The bad thing is that the artwork on the front of the box is so uninteresting that my attention skipped over it.  The inserts on the front seems a bit of an overkill, but it's there to "fill space".  The back shows the bios and the action features, but does not have a picture of the other figures in the line.

Dynacus comes in a number of parts that has to be assembled.  Thankfully there's an instruction sheet.  The parts can also be assembled Lego-like on its own or with other vehicles to form other vehicles as shown on  the back of the box. There's also a figure included - Zur of the Ice Clan.  He's similar in the other figures of the line - nicely painted and sculpted, five points of articulation and falls down if he holds a weapon, but in this case

The sculpt is good, and there's no paintwork. Thanks to the peg and holes, there's a lot of articulation on Dynacus.  However, he's a two-legged thing and tend to fall over very easily.  I use his tail as a balance though, but that won't work after the tail is "fired" as a projectile, which is the action feature.  The jaw doesn't open, which is a pity.  Still it's a nice toy on its own.


  1. I've never heard of this line before. This looks like a cool set, though!

  2. I've never heard of it until I started talking about toys online. It's an interesting line for sure.
