Creative Beast Beast of the Mesozoic Glow-in-the-dark Dinosaurs Zuniceratops Action FigureCreator David Silva has a lot of good ideas. He understands how to sculpt, how to get the most out of your tooling, how to color dinosaurs as realistic, believable animals. He also understands novelty. Two flavors of the Glow-in-the-dark Dinosaurs Zuniceratops were made to appeal to people that appreciate top-of-the-line sculpting and the very best articulation you can buy in a toy dinosaur... but also want it to look like a skee-ball prize from 1988.

There are incredible, gorgeous painted versions of Zuniceratops you can and should buy. But I collect a lot of glow things, so when I saw the green and orange versions of this feller with 29 points of articulation, I wanted both. But I just bought one, because as you can see after a few thousand toy reviews, I have issues. They're some of the best-looking dinosaur toys money can buy and they're pretty big too - and this 1:18 scale figure is basically sized for your 3 3/4-inch figure collection. It's sized perfectly to go with the various Toy Pizza offerings... and also decades of Kenner and Hasbro figures.

Articulation is good - ball-jointed front leg hips and tail and neck. Hinge jaw. Bend-and-swivel almost everything else. It's like they took the best from collector figures and put them in a toy dinosaur that, most likely, you would have (and have) passed up for a couple of bucks in the supermarket toy section. The orange spray on top brings out some of the sculpted detail, but the glow plastic absorbs most of it. You can see they did a nice job here, and the figure has no problems standing. Granted, there aren't a ton of action poses you can get, but it's a heck of a lot more interesting than the $1 rubber figures at Walmart - he can look up! He can bend in the middle! This is the toy you want to pose fighting your other two-legged carnivore dinosaur toys.

It feels sturdy and is satisfyingly chunky, comparable or better than a Hasbro or Mattel equivalent. It's truly the (goofball glow redeco) Marvel Legends of dinosaur toys, with just a bit of orange that reminds me of the Adventure People Alpha Star alien creature. Only here, there's a painted tongue and tiny, teeny black eyes. Other than that, it's a fairly simple paint job that doesn't look particularly complex - it's just a glow toy.

I really dig it, but I should note the glow is imperfect. Some body parts glow brighter than others, and that's truly odd - why should one chunk of one leg outshine the rest of the toy? I'm not sure. But it's still neat enough to pick up, and for all I know I got stuck in the middle of some weird batch variations. I'd advise you check it in person if you can, but since these toys are rarely stocked in actual stores that may not be possible. This is a pity, because the boxes - which usually have lavish paintings and gorgeous photography - needs to be seen to be appreciated. It's a lice of 1980s cheese, with iffy dirt and rocks and low-rent plastic trees on a packing shoot that appeared to take great pains to look super cheap. The glow text and red outlines look like something out of a 1990s fish tank decoration, which is a gleefully delightful design choice for this particular kind of toy. For fans over a certain age, this is a bizarre treat. You don't see many weird throwbacks like this, so I'd recommend getting it if you've spent $20 or more on an indie toy. I love me some glow The Outer Space Men (and recommend them highly), but at just a couple of bucks higher this is a bigger, meatier figure in more impressive packaging. Don't miss it.
