Xtractaurs are a new line of dinosaur toys from Mattel that consist of a plastic model, and the capability to fight your dino against other kids' online in 'My Brute' style matches. Whee, My Brute!
The whole set includes a sampled dinosaur and an 'extraction gun'. When playing the toy, you firstly need to connect the gun to your computer and then use it to 'extract' the dinosaur's DNA. After that, the DNA data will be uploaded to the Xtractaurs website from the gun and you could then enter an online game in which the dinosaurs are having a fierce battle against their enemies.
And the best point is that kids are allowed to collect the DNA of different samples (about 10 of the 15 kinds of dinosaurs that are included) and combine them together to create a more powerful dinosaur.
Collecting and combining dinosaur DNA -- sounds like my kind of game! You ever milked a dinosaur before? They're like scaly bulls. And I'll pass on the extractor gun thank you very much.
