Review by JoshB
The Stikfas Dinosaur Stegosaurus comes packaged in a sturdy resealable box. Inside is a resealable bag, with two parts sprues, and an instruction sheet. I really like Stikfas packaging, and how almost nothing goes to waste. The dinosaur boxes are the same size as the figure boxes.
Assembling the dinosaur is fairly easy, but will benefit from a set of cutters. Leftover sprue on parts can be pretty sharp. The parts are not numbered, but they are grouped logically on the sprues. The fold out diagram does not have directions per-se; just an exploded view of the model. It was a bit difficult to figure out what was supposed to go on first, but I was able to figure out. Inexperienced modelers would benefit from numbered instructions.
The final product is a fully articulated Stegosaurus Skeleton. The thing looks really cool '“ not entirely anatomically accurate but with a cartoony-Sikfas feel. Unlike other Stikfas kits, there are no extra parts or stickers. I thought it would have been cool to add on a missile cannon, evil eyes or maybe even logos on the spikes.
Still, it is what it is, and it is a fun toy to build and play with. The connectors appear to be a common Stikfas size, so you could use the legs on another figure, or combine them with another dinosaur kit to make a new creation.
