Thanks !

Dynamic types skip all compile time checking in favour of runtime checking
I was aware of that, but, still felt there was some "spooky action at a distance" going on when it came to this specific type of Type creation.

i find the two examples that "fail" rather strange in this context because they contain rather obvious programming errors ... i think your point is the lack of compile checking, which is generally known by anyone who uses 'dynamic.

Personally, I'm still not convinced that adding dynamic to the language was a good idea - it seems too much like a way to move compile time errors to runtime and break strong typing ...
imho, that's a very interesting topic for debating what a supposedly strongly-typed language should expose for use by programmers.

Should it expose reflection, and dynamic, facilities ? Allow use of facilities that allow access to OS internals the way C# lets you use API's ? Expose Activator ? Expose a REPL facility ? i suppose an "extremist" might even oppose facilities like generics, and Linq, and extension methods.

i see use of 'dynamic as "dangerous," but useful when you absolutely have to have a "bag" of mixed Types and use of casting to interface is unwanted ... a whole lot better implementation than the now deprecated 'ArrayList.

The run-time creation and instantiation of generic Types seems valuable to me for creating object factories.
