Hope you didn't pay too much. ToyWiz is selling those suckers for $85 each! :shock:
I paid $22 & change at Target a while back when they were doing a $25 off $100 in toys... :D

If you mean the 6-inch stuff, that's not supposed to be coming until 2019...

It's that long from now? Well the good news is that they are at least making them so that is a huge plus for me. To be honest I wasn't sold on their previous Blues. This new one is definitely something I want.

Snagged a Suchomimus at Target a few days ago. Passed on it a while ago, but figured I better get one while I can, as it's case-mate is the Stegosaurus, and those Stegos don't move very fast. Well, all I'm waiting on now is the Sinoceratops, BD wave 2, JW: Legacy wave 2( incl. the Spinosaurus ).

^ When is the Sinoceratops supposed to release?

For my part, I may get a Suchomimus if I ever see one in the wild, and I'll probably get a Dimorphodon (green version) and an Indoraptor on Thursday. I had been planning to pass on Indo; I wasn't impressed with its portrayal in FK, but the toy really is pretty cool, and I guess the thing is part of the franchise, now, so I may as well embrace it.

^ In the Fall. No other time frame is known. Sino will be the only original release in Roarivores Wave 3. It's case-mates will be Pteranodon, Metriacanthosaurus, and Triceratops( yes, again... ). Maybe we'll get a re-paint with one of the 3 re-packs...
The green Dimorphodon is only in Attack Pack Asst B, and I've already seen Asst C around here a few times.

My Walmart just got Asst B in the other day, and there were several green Dimorphodons last time I checked. Hopefully one sticks around until I get paid.

And Fall is okay with me. Presumably that means a month or more, which works. I've been blowing way too much money on this line, so a break will be a good thing. :lol:

Someone in Canada found the BD Gallimimus at Wal-Mart. Looks like Wal-Mart's BD Wave 2 is starting to hit...
EDIT: I think my Wal-Mart is getting ready for Christmas. They just restocked with the Thrash 'n Throw T-Rex and the most SuperPoseable Indoraptors I've EVER seen in one place!!! :shock:

I was browsing Bigbadtoystore today and came across this
Tyrannosaurus Rex "Vanilla Ice" (Jungle) 1/35 Scale Replica
E0997362-52CF-43B0-8979-599BC32058B9.jpeg

It looked kinda familiar, but I couldn’t place it until I saw the Mountain recolor.
00E324A5-75CD-4CF0-A97E-8327F11FD923.jpeg

It’s a Vastatosaurus rex from 2005 King Kong!

It’s only point of articulation is the jaw, still looking nice though.

That's Rebor's shtick, no doubt. They're a lot like Papo, where they take heavy inspiration from movies but still manage to avoid copyright issues. I think their pop culture inspired stuff is pretty nice, but the original statues like the Utahraptor can be hit-or-miss.

Do all the Allosauruses( plural? )have black tongues, or are some of them pink?

Anyone in North America find the Sinoceratops Roarivore yet?

Do any Kohl's still have the Dilophosaurus/Dimorphodon 2-Packs in stock?

No luck with the Sinoceratops yet, but I'm not too concerned. My Walmart tends to overstock the Roarivores pretty heavily, so I'm sure I'll have plenty of opportunities to get one.

I just bought the Velociraptor/Gallimimus 2-Pack off Amazon. $9.99, free shipping. A better deal than B&M retail, which is $14.99. Could care less about the green Velociraptor, but it comes with the exclusive yellow Gallimimus, which I want in my collection... :D

The green raptor actually surprised me. The details are quite nice, and it looks very accurate (in shape) to the raptors in the first film. It may surprise you.

Found the Roarivores Sinoceratops at my local Wally a couple days ago. Had the blue 'NEW' in the upper right corner of the box. An impressive beast...

EDIT: Apparently Sinoceratops has hit hard in the South( so far ) - all the ones on eBay are in Texas, Alabama, and Tennessee. Stay tuned...
Hold the phone! As of the time of this edit, someone is selling a Sinoceratops over on Amazon, and it has a different color scheme than what we've seen thus far! It has a lot of very pale green on it's back, and the facial paint aps are totally changed! :shock:

EDIT 2: Found the Battle Damage Gallimimus at my local Wal-Mart tonight! Or perhaps I should say that I found a box that said, 'JW BATTLE DAMAGE ASST MIX B' and no, I didn't wait for someone else to open it! The Galli' and 5 other BD peg warmers were inside. Ahh, the smell of fresh plastic...

Here's Safari ltd.'s current lineup for "2019." Definitely looking to pick up some Morrison Formation dinosaurs.
