The Prontosaurus is another entry in the bootleg "prehistory animal" series that takes Hasbro's G1 Dinobot designs and re-engineers them into something wonderful. Sanjeev reviewed the great Tyuannosaurus a few years ago.

While there is no maker's mark on them, general consensus is that these were made by the infamous Four Star. All the hallmarks are there.

Prontosaurus uses the Dinobot Sludge as a base to create a new toy. While the head and chest are the same, the arms, legs, and dinosaur body parts are entirely remolded (although clearly based off of the original).

There was a gun, but it is missing from my sample.

There are variations of Prontosaurus out there, such as some having grey plastic limbs instead of the bronze shown here. I have also heard that there is an alternate red chest color as well.

I'm sure the original fit and finish was great on this, but time has taken its toll and now it is a floppy mess. The original Sludge design did not stand too well in the first place, and the modifications here do not make it any better.

Who were Four Star, and why did they make these wonderful pseudo-knockoffs?

The mystery deepens.
