Raptillion 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 incased 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.
Raptillion 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.
Mega Bloks website describes Raptillion as such:
“Raptillion (Allosaurus) is member of a unique plasma world of creatures who beckon to be explored and customized – build, play, collect, and nurture - you are master of an entire collection and only you understand their most intricate detail.
Raptillion is a frighteningly efficient, bloodthirsty creature with a sense of smell that is superb for detecting prey and performing stealth ambushes. Also, Raptillion is a bully who enjoys a long and massive reign of terror over other dinosaurs.
Raptillion comes in 9 easy to assemble pieces, is fully poseable, with parts that are completely interchangeable with all other plasma dragons. Included in the package is a blister card showing different ways to interchange plasma dragon parts and create exciting new creatures.
The egg doubles as storage containers for easy portability and also comes in handy for other building possibilities.”
These are really excellent figures, and an excellent value. Kids and Collectors will both dig these.
