Fernbogg Swamp Dragon
Review by JoshB
Fernbogg is part of MEGA Brands Plasma series of figures. The main idea of the Plasma series is that each figure comes disassembled inside a plastic egg. All of the parts are encased in a rubber womb-like case. The rubber is the Plasma, a kind of embryonic casing. The rubber is textured and really stretchy. It’s kind of gross actually, but that makes it cool.
The dragon is made up of 9 parts that you have to assemble. The assembly is simple – you just pop the limbs onto the pegs sticking out of the main body. Each limb has a stiff rubbery texture, while the main body is a harder plastic. The head is articulated, with a moveable jaw.
The glory of the plasma series is that all the parts are compatible with any other Plasma series toy, no matter if it is a Dragon or a Dinosaur. The back of the package gives sample ideas as to some of the larger creations you can make. You can get a hint of the potential by looking at Fernbogg’s tail. Doesn’t it look like an arm?
Also – Take a good look at the body of Fernbogg – look familiar? Remind you of a certain Space Dragon?
Another great thing about this line is the quality of the sculpts and the great designs. Where the regular Dragons line have a more medieval feel, the Plasma figures have more of an anime style to them.
These are really excellent figures, and an excellent value. Kids and Collectors will both dig these.
