I've bought...way too much. Currently I haven't bought any of the matchbox stuff or minis, but I've bought most of the Legacy line, all of the Walmart Battle Damaged Dinosaurs minus the Colossal Rex, all the Attack Packs, the Indoraptor, the Mosasaur, and the Thrash and Throw Rex. None of the vehicles have popped up around me at all, except the Gyrosphere blast one which I'm not super into getting yet.

This is the first Carnotaurus to ever be in my collection, and I think I made a great choice. This is a lot better than the Kenner ones. It's amazing, in fact! But, I think I'm going to give my wallet some time to rest and recuperate now.

Nice add, the Carnotaurus is fantastic! It's my first too, I didn't have a Carnotaurus in my collection.

I'm using the Mattel toys as an opportunity to get what I didn't really care to get before. I never cared for the Kenner JPs1 Triceratops, and didn't like the lack of articulation with the Kenner JP Demon. And TLW's Bone Breaker was just way too funny looking for my tastes. This, though. This is perfect. It's screen accurate, with a nice sense towards scientific accuracy. You can actually bend the arms back towards the back and make it looks just like the animal from the fossil record!


Plus, it's just a lot of fun to play with. Cool


Also, I thought I'd post EVERYTHING I've got so far. Like I said, I've been using Mattel to pick up things I'd never had in my collection previously. I've skipped out on Grant and Ellie, but did grab Muldoon. I'm debating if I should get the JW styled Stego, or be content with my TLW one. I also still have yet to pick up the Super Colossal T. rex. It's not in the budget until the start of next month.

You should have tried to sell them on Ebay/Amazon and get something out of them instead.

I got my Super Colossal T. rex yesterday and I put it together downstairs this morning. All I can say is that I'm impressed about...EVERYTHING! It's size, detail, and of amount of high quality. This is Mattel's masterpiece when it comes to JW:FK toys. This is equal to the Kenner T. rexes I have. And this might even surpass them.

I was thinking about buying the Thrash N Throw Rex, but it's $70 here in Canada, and being dirt poor, I can't justify spending that kind of cash Sad

I went to Walmart and just couldn't help myself...










The poor Bull T.rex didn't stand a chance Sad

Also glad to report that I was able to remove it from the box while keeping the box perfectly intact. Didn't even cut the twine Razz

You will be happy that you got that. The Colossal T. rex, of both versions-normal and scarred-are going to be just as prized as the Kenner T. rexes. And we should throw in the 2009 retooled Bull T. rex that Hasbro made in the mix as well.

You guys are so lucky, here in my country I can't find even the Roarivores (I'm dying inside that I still don't have the Baryonyx)...

Waiting for at least the Mosasaurus to get here. =(

Hey Rhedosaurus! Very Happy

This raptor is from a line called "Destruct-a-saurus". They arrived here in a store in my city just a few days ago. There were 2 other models too. One gold Pteranodon with Microceratus and a new color variant of Attack Pack Dilophosaurus and Compsognathus.

Here's the pic with the 5 models that will be released:



I really liked this raptor, the color is amazing and it's why I got it, the head stripes are golden, only little nitpicks I have against it's the rest of the stripes on it's body should be golden too and when the piece of the cage is in it's mouth the raptor can't stand (balance problems). The rest I 100% recommend it. The Microceratus is also cute and I loved that they made a toy of it.

That's too bad. I actually though the Colossal wasn't supposed to be that much more then the Thrash N' Throw.

For some comparison, the Thrash N' Throw was $70 at Toys R Us where I live, and the Roarin' Super Colossal was $70 at Walmart.

I must have been lucky. I got my Roarin Super Colossal T. rex with Battle Damage for like 49 bucks, give or take. Everywhere else I've seen it online, it was going for like 89-100 bucks.

You guys are lucky to have the Colossal T.rex, here in my country we won't even get it because it would cost a kidney to get one.

But I'm glad I got the Mosasaurus.

We barely have any JW:FK toys in my store. And that includes JW:FK Lego sets. Hopefully, that changes. I winded up getting my Super Colossal Tyrannosaurus Rex via Amazon, and that's going to be where I get most of the other JW:FK toys that I plan to get.
