The prehistoric animal is, as usual in this collection, very well made, has glass eyes, and also a mechanism that allows flapping its wings. The mechanism is very well made, but it still not so well done as for example in Kenner´s Jurassic Park toyline. The wings are rigid, they have no articulation at the middle of it. The beak can also be opened and closed, revealing the tongue, but no teeth (the Pteranodons were the first Pterosaurs without teeth).
Included in the set was a small transparent conical base for the figure to stand. Otherwise, the figure cannot be placed for display in a position fixed position. The base had a peg to be inserted in the belly of the creature. This base is quite difficult to find. In most loose toys this part has been lost. Unfortunately, I neither have it, but I will try to find something similar to replace it.
