Waay back at Toy Fair in February, we saw a new sub-line
that was scheduled to be part of the imaginext brand by Mattel. This line featured dinosaurs, which is always an awesome thing by itself. What was better still, however, was that the dinosaurs came with high powered weapons and armor, as well as 'riders' who would ostensibly use the dinos in their combat operations! Yet another 80s moment was had at the show, and now after 6 months of waiting it looks like everyone else may have it too.
These great new sets - some of them at least - have finally turned up at my local target and even have their own endcap in the toy section! You'll note a few cool additions to their wonderful Batman line as well, hanging out with the dinos. I'll see what I can do about adding some legitimate coverage for these sets to the Preserve, because they were definitely one of the favorite things that I saw at the big toy show.
