It's featured in some of the Ludia games but not prominent enough for a whole collection figure

Which is why I expect it to be a Dominon newcomer

Throw in the upcoming Beasts of the Mesozoic Tyrannosaurus rex that will be offered in the same basic scale (1/32-1/35), and I can't decide which one to buy first. They're all incredible:



I have the REBOR Killer Queen in Jungle (Lost World) color, and I also have both colors of REBOR's Vanilla Ice V.rex, and I have Nanmu's I.rex. I'm pre-ordered for Nanmu's T.rex, both colors.

Going by the REBOR rex I have and the reviews of the Nanmu that I've seen, and the fact that we won't see the BoTM rex for another year or two, right now I would buy the Green Nanmu rex first, if I was only buying one. The Nanmu rex looks to be the best JP/JW rex currently on the market for less than $100, and the Green paint seems to be just a little bit more dynamic than the Brown. That said, the Brown looks pretty sweet.

Comparing photos of the REBOR and the NANMU, I have to agree that the NANMU has a slight edge IMO due to the pose. The REBOR is slightly stockier, and stands in a crouched pose with the head angled downward. The NANMU stand taller in a semi-walking pose and looks straight forward. Either one is excellent overall; it really comes down to the proportions and the pose for me.

It appears Rebor will begin doing a series of dinosaurs based on Charles R Knight's paintings. A T.rex has already been teased.

Awesome! I love classic-style dinosaurs, particularly Knight's T. rex.

Now if they'll just announce when that Carnotaurus Rex is coming out...

Interesting. I've been on a retrosaur kick lately, but I'll still probably have to pass on these. Cool that they're being made, though.

Dude I am a sucker for some Charles Knight. I dont have any Rebor, but maybe I'll need to hop on these

It is mostly Spider-Man themed, but I'd love to talk cosplay, lightsaber commissions, and countless other topics.

Sucks Deinosuchus and Sarcosuchus got cancelled by Rebor. Also I see Wave 2 of the Beasts of the Mesozoic ceratopsian line drops just in time for income tax season. I'm only getting Styracosaurus and Chasmosaurus from Wave 1 but I hope to grab a majority of the figures from Wave 2. Especially love that Pachyrhinosaurus.

Alas I am not made of money(or rather figure collecting has yet to fully consume me), so I'll only get the Psittacosaurus from Wave 1 for the acccurate-to-life-far-as-we-can-tell coloration, and then maybe consider one of the smaller ones if the reviews and such convince me I need another.

The crocs may not be dead at REBOR...

They're going to be putting out a series of skulls, and Deino and Sarco are in wave 2, with proceeds from the sale of the two skulls going directly toward developing the Deino and Sarco full figure sculpts to be presented in soft vinyl as part of the GNG line...

Hey, anyone actually ordered the BOTM Raptors from the official site as opposed to BigBadToyStore? I see the shipping is considerably less on BBTS so I'm probably gonna order from there, but I'm wondering if anyone has any horror stories or the like about either site before I pull the trigger.

When is the BotM ceratopsian line dropping? I'm hearing both September and October.

October is Kickstarter backer fulfillment. Was planned for September but, y'know. Earth.

Is it said when Backerkit fulfillment for the Ceratopsian series would be? Also how many you folks will be ordering or have placed preorders? Im eyeing the Styracosaurus, Zuniceratops, Protoceratops and Triceratops.
