Prototype Brontosaurus (comics front view)
« on: August 01, 2012, 09:00:15 AM »
EDIT:
oops ! it was already listed at brontosaurus's webpage http://www.dinoridersworld.com/Toys/Dinosaurs/Brontosaurus.html in the "variant" link.


Hello, just to say that because it is certainly too obvious, I  haven't seen on the website the art of the Bronto (whereas other dinos are pictured), which is at the end of the small comics sold with the toys (second wave).
It ressemble a lot at the one at http://www.dinoridersworld.com/museum-prototypes.html but it's not exactly the same (front is different).

Here is what I'm talking about:

I would say that this is artwork based on the Diplodocus. It probably got changed because they thought the Bronto would look too much like the Diplo.

All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

And because the art of the bronto looks so much like the diplo, we can even think that it's one of the diplo's first prototype.  :P

Or just based on the Diplo. Indeed the Bronto actually wears that Armor in the series:


Meanwhile the Toy's Armor also shows up, but as a time machine.


Later gets dismnatled to make Armor for the Ice Age Mammals they import...
