Reptron - Playskool Go-Bots - Figure

Reptron
Going against the grain of the “Bot” names, Reptron’s color scheme bears more a resemblance to the Beast Wars character Dinobot than his repainted brother. He is also one of two new molds in the beast assortment for the line.

Tech Specs
“When it comes to hunting down adventure, Reptron is always on the prowl. After you unlock the incredible power and speed of the dinosaur inside him, it’s dino-mite fun getting the action on the run.”

Not the best tech spec in the world. But, at least we know he’s a tenacious bloke when it comes to hunting adventure. I wonder if it’s tasty.

Beast Mode
Reptron resembles a bipedal dinosaur. I hesitate to call it a raptor since it clearly isn’t, though it does share some similar aspects. He’s mostly a dark orange with some dark gray and red highlights. Reptron’s articulation is located in his shoulders and hips. You can open the mouth slightly and bend the head downward at the neck, though that looks a little unnatural.

Transformation
Unlock the tail from the torso and pull back. Flip the tail so that it’s flush with the back. Position the arms and legs to your liking and you’re done. The tail locks together very well in both modes, so don’t be afraid to use “excessive force” if necessary.

Robot Mode
With the exception that he’s now upright and has a robot head, there really isn’t too much difference between the modes since the arms and legs in his beast mode function the same in robot mode. His face has an Iron Giant-ish jaw and two bulging eyes. He’s more fearsome looking in beast mode.

Overall
Reptron’s not a bad toy by any means. I personally prefer his color scheme over that of Dino-Bot since the light green doesn’t seem to work for the toy. I see the tail being an issue for younger hands though.
