For whatever reason, Bandai America refuses to give us a Poisandra figure. But they’ve done the next best thing and given us her robotic created best buddy in Curio!
Rounding out the first wave of villains in the Power Rangers Dino Charge 5″ figure line, Curio represents everything good – and everything bad – with the villain figures! Check out over 20 images and a review of the little guy who stares in to your soul by clicking here!

He's little. He's creepy. He's best friends with Poisandra. And for around $9.99 USD, he can sit on your shelf and stare in to your soul. Yes friends, it's time for everyone's favorite robotic created best buddy, Curio.
Released in the first wave of villain figures for the Power Rangers Dino Charge 5" Figure line, Curio was immediately a fan-favorite because of his representation on the fan-favorite Power Rangers Dino Charge television series. Created to be the robotic best friend of the wife of Sledge, Poisandra, Curio acts as half comedy relief, half awkward action when he appears on the show.
Initially hard to find and soon to be really hard to find (unless he's in an assortment of Power Rangers Dino Supercharge) because of the newer releases, he's still a fun figure and worthy of having a home on your shelf. Let's dissect the robot in our review!
As far as looks go, Curio is pretty awesome at being a representation of what you see on the screen. Yes, there's some paint applications missing and yes, the articulation is practically non-existent, but the figure is still pretty fun. As for articulation - arms move forward and backward, legs move outward and inward, and the head can turn. And that's it. No elbows, no knees, no ankles, and I'm going to say no wrists even though they do move (albeit hampered by the plastic sleeves from the arms). To add to it, the head only moves when you remove the shroud that covers Curio, which helps the arm articulation.
When it comes down to it - if you want an articulated figure to put in cool poses, this is not the figure for you.
Curio comes with his watering can, which has yet to be seen on the show. In Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, the watering can was used by Curio to make the monsters grow. In Power Rangers Dino Charge a beam is fired from the ship. This may (and likely will) change in Power Rangers Dino Supercharge, yet whether Curio is finally involved or not in that process has yet to be seen.
The hidden accessory is the fact that the shroud that covers Curio can be removed (with a little head surgery). This allows for the head to be able to turn and the arms to move more freely. While not necessarily an accessory to write home about, it's still a neat feature that I'm glad exists.
This figure isn't for everyone. I'd dare say you'd only appreciate this figure if you're a big fan of Curio or if you're collecting the 5" line of figures. And if you fit in to either one of those groups, you won't be disappointed.
Stay tuned for even more galleries of the villain figures, specifically the second wave, in the coming week(s)!
