[Lantaurion's Head]

Lantaurion looks very much like the other magno-powered horses such as Andromeda, but with a rather obvious difference - the head. Like some bad dream, Lantaurion got a strange looking head. Lantaurion is all red, except for the missile launchers. These missile launchers connect at Lantaurion's midsection with magno joints and add a bit of black color. Lantaurion is fully jointed at the knee and body. His neck can also pitch forward, allowing for realistic rearing positions.

[Lantaurion on wheels]Lantaurion has accessories to become a wheeled vehicle by removing his legs and replacing them with the black-on-red wheels and black hubs. There is a set of larger hubs for the front and smaller hubs with rubber tracks for the rear.
[King Atlas Centaur]Lantaurion can become part of a centaur figure with King Atlas. Just remove Lantaurion's head and replace it with King Atlas's torso. Lantaurion may have also been released in a "prototype" version. The "prototype's" box front and the quartet of photos on the back show evidence of ever-so-slightly different poses and background lighting. The toy featured on the "prototype" box has thick, splotchy paint on the neck-ring & other parts, and a noticeable gouge in the plastic in it?s chest. Also, the head doesn't fit into the neck-joint well. Lantaurion was also released in Greece as Orion with a much bigger box.
