The Enthusiast

Bootleg toys can be inspired experiments or degenerate garbage. Usually the distinction is obvious. The Robosaur Brontosaurus, however, is garbage cleverly disguised as inspired experiment. At first glance, appears to be a creation of Four Star, the genius eighties bootlegger. While the Robosaur shares certain qualities with a Four Star bot (creatively re-sculpted elements, unique additions to the base mold), the execution is inferior.

Brontosaurus is packaged in a decent window box. The graphics and photographs are nearly professional, but the awkwardness of the toy is immediately apparent.

The figure rests in one of those bare bones styrofoam trays that is obviously used for all of the figures in the line Accessories consist of a sword and gun

The Brontosaur mold is based on G1 Sludge. The back has been reworked to include ridge armor plates. There's all kinds of strange choices here. The frontward portion of the back is chrome plated, the body has been sculpted with furry surface detail, there's a pair of tiny vestigial legs near the tail.

I like the addition of transparent elements. The head, in particular , is awesome. Did Brontosaurs have unicorn-like horns? The clear armor over silver armature is beautiful, evocative of Microman.

While the . dinosaur mode has its charms, the whole thing goes to hell in robot mode Transformation is awkward The tail needs to be tucked under the awkward chest piece

The head, oh god the head. Could they really not improve upon this soft plastic lump? What a failure.

Nothing of value has been added to the bot. Its a dumpy, unlovable blob.

The Brontosaurus is frustrating not because its a cheap knockoff, but because it's a cheap knockoff which fails to live up to its potential, even by the low standards of the inspired bootleg transformer.
