Predators DNA Fusion puts an interesting spin on a favorite "raw material" of toy makers, dinosaurs. Capitalizing on the ubiquitous nature of genetics and DNA in our culture, Predators is filled with twenty four violent dinosaur-mutants that are the result of combining the DNA of two dinosaurs.
The figures are made of a flexible plastic and have no points of articulation. Paint applications are of a nice quality, tasteful and clean. The teeth are glow-in-the-dark, which is always a fun additional detail. Each figure comes with a detachable weapon; they attach via a nub on the weapon that fits snuggly into a slot on the sculpt's hand or arm.
Single figures come packaged in foil packs. Included is a card and a nicely illustrated and arranged checklist.
The two dinosaurs of which each Predator is made can be seen in the upper corners of the cards. It looks as if Kabell is a hybrid of a Triceratops and Raptor. Indeed, the card is packed with graphics and info that can be used to play a card game as well.
The twenty four dinos are divided into 3 groups, eight monsters per group. The groups are named after what appears to be prehistoric time periods. It's possible the dinosaurs in the groups hail from those time periods, but I'm not sure.
Dracco has created a fun and highly collectable dinosaur-based mini figure toy line. The figures look great, feel great, and are sure to appeal to dino lovers, sci-fi geeks, and mini fig collectors.
