Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Pteramimus Action FigureI love the all-too-brief revival of The Lost World: Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect dinosaurs that is "Dino Hybrid." The Hybrid Pteramimus is a Dimorphodon with a new head, new wings, and new deco - and it doesn't quite match the one from Hasbro's packaged sample photos. The final toy is very red with some blue and yellow. The photos are largely purple. If you see one that's more purple for sale, let me know - I'd like to know if there's a legit variant out there. I should also note that with this (and other) toys on Amazon, the name is incorrect - and other sellers have it wrong, too. It's "Pteramimus" on the box. Two "m"s.

Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Pteramimus Action FigureThe fuzzy flyer seems to be a mix of a Pteranodon and I assume a Struthiomimus or Gallimimus, but the on-package bio of "Hybrid dinos battle for survival!" in four languages offers no help to anybody. Just tell me what DNA went into the vats! The retooled Dimorphodon toy enjoys a new head with nifty bite action, activated by squeezing its legs together. The 12-inch wingspan flaps at the same time, making a noise that could easily be wind in wings or a chomping jaw. I guess your imagination can decide. The wound on the creature's back lights up when you press it, playing the same noise as the Dimorphodon.

Feathery features on the wings look vaguely like spikes or hair, with the rest of the figure having somewhat leathery skin. It looks good - I love the yellow "beak" with the teeth and meaty mouth. The yellow double-stripe in its crest looks great, and the pattern on the wings looks good too. Keeping in line with other Dino Hybrid toys, there's a lot of metallic and pearly paint mixed in with shiny "hands" and legs, giving it a little more "oomph" than some other toys. The black camo on the wings is a nice - if somewhat silly - touch, and some purple on the belly is completely unnecessary. But it's appreciated! Hasbro really went to the mat to put extra money on the paint here.

Above all else, this is a toy. The bright colors and great paint job may take you back to older Kenner toys, as it feels like no real shortcuts were taken here - your hazy memories of things being better are validated. The blue around the eyes helps draw attention to them, and the flapping mechanism works great. This is a toy that works best when you pick it up and play with it... which you probably won't do because you aren't seven. I know no such limitations and am enjoying it immensely. Don't judge me.

This is a goofy, but fun toy that I'm seeing in retail stores as I write this. Get one. It's weird and fun, even if it can't stand on its own two feet. Get some fishing line or a display stand of some sort for this one, and keep an eye on the deco - there may be some chipping thanks to bright colors and multiple layers of paint being difficult to keep nice in open-box packaging from overseas. This is a gorgeous toy. While other Dino Hybrid toys were shown at Toy Fair this year, we've seen no solicitations for them - it's possible this could be the last one and even the final toy in Hasbro and Kenner's long Jurassic Park toy legacy. I hope they get a few more out there before things come to an end, but this is a fine note on which to go out.
