I wrote this last year and it had to get posted eventually. So Pteraxadon! This Autobot has been kind of hard to get, and it's also neat. Dinosaur axe dudes aren't a regular thing in any toy line.
What makes this one neat is that you can fudge a third mode that's pretty worthwhile.
By default you get a pterosaur robot of sorts, which makes absolutely no sense in the context of the story but who cares? It's cool. The green-bodied black-limbed creature stands on his tiny two legs with an articulated neck, wings, and ankles - and if you want to pretend the handle is an extra-long tail, be my guest. The creature is mostly plastic except for a metal pin to keep the tail in, with sculpting that's not as intensely detailed as some of the new guys. It's an average detail toy - it works. You'll like it.
The transformation to weapon is pretty easy - tuck in the head, feet, and wings. Fold down the handle. Now you've got an axe. If you don't like the axe? There's a hidden 5mm peg under the creature's head that can serve as another place to grip the robot - and with the tail grip extended, it sure looks like a blaster to me. You can mount the blue blast effect on the tip of the grip, or on the pegs on the blades/wings for a smash clash effect.
With the giant blue blast effect and two weapon modes, this robot prehistoric creature is one of the better releases in this segment. You get a lot more to play with and it's a fun toy to keep around on your desk to give all your new figures as a weapon. If you see it, get it.
