Allosaurus V Stegosaurus is not much of a fight. More like the aftermath of one.

Some of those color schemes look familiar. And the Stegosaurus reminds me a lot of the dead one CollectA made.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

Its a shame there isn't one where the herbivore has the upper hand.

Hear, hear!  I know nature is red in tooth and claw and all that, but I'm not keen on having "kill" scenes in my collection.  (Just my personal thing, I'm not saying anyone else should take this view!)  I might perhaps go for the Pteranodon pair and also the Protoceratops scene (to remind me of the famous fossil) but I'll definitely pass on the other combinations.

At the moment I have no interest in getting these.
If they were obscure species then I would've considered, but I really don't need another generic Tyrannosaurus, spinosaurus, allosaurus etc. in my collection. Especially since it's not hard to make your own fight scenes from figures you currently have.

the Protoceratops paint scheme is so similar to the Safari copy Proto

It is necessary to recognize that they are more interesting their favorite Figures model Museum 2016 (guanlong vs yinlong, roundsaurus vs coelophysis, Zhuchengtyrannus vs sinoceratops, yutyrannus fighting and pentaceratops vs bistahieversor).

True that his figures are manidas like the tyrannosaurus, triceratops or allosaurus to give some examples. But frankly when dealing with some miniatures are not badly modeled, perhaps they do not have the perfection of other dinosaur toy companies in this case, but they are still miniatures but for example it is unnatural the position of the tyrannosaurus rex attacker, I do not see it natural , But it is a simple assessment.

theyre alright but I would have preferred more obscure dinos like the ones from the museum line.
the T-rex looks like the Battat vers 1 colors.

Hmm, I have to echo the sentiment that I'm not especially interested in these.  I think the Allosaurus vs (former) Stegosaurus is my favorite of the bunch, but only because the animals just look a little better sculpted overall.

The more I look at them, the less keen I am.  They all look at bit rough and ready to me.

The basis of support of the two pteranodons from my point of view is exceedingly enormous. They could have made some finer bases like the archeopteryx 2017 Favorite.

Not as hot for them as I initially thought. I might pass on these after all...

Lemme get a good look at that fish the Pteranodons are fighting over.

I'm actually more interested in the fish (if it's not a coelacanth / generic fish) than the rest of the sets.

I would be interested in the fish if I could remove it from their jaws, but I doubt that will be the case. I think the base is also really cool for the pterosaurs, but I'm not wild about the pterosaurs themselves.

Go figure. It looks like a Wiwaxia without any spines.

It kinda does, now that you point it out!
