Recent Acquisitions
« on: March 13, 2012, 05:48:54 AM »
I hereby launch the Acquisitions thread so that we may begin activity on the new forum in earnest! *Breaks bottle of champagne on the bow*

Here is something appropriately sparkling which recently arrived, David Krentz's 1:72 Shapeways Giganotosaurus, in Frosted Detail.



I'm going to paint it eventually.

Hey, it looks better than my version of the Giganotosaurus in FUD did when it was still unpainted. :) Especially less frosted. I wonder if shapeways changed something in the printing process?

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a T-rex by Krentz? My friends all have Sideshow, I must make amends.

A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Purchased at an excellent price from this seller.

Hey, I bought a bunch fro the same seller! I personally like the variety, and they are pretty well done (for kids-oriented toys). A little garish on their colours, but oh well.

I need to make a post on the new forum so, today I picked-up the Carnegie Icthyosaurus.  I'm pleased with it and, I think it will look good next to my Schleich Shoniasaurus (also a fairly recent acquisition)!

Finally! I haven't received it--won it this morning--but it is now mine!

And for only a little more than I wanted to pay. Instead of the usual substantially more...



I am pleased. And hoping that my wife doesn't follow through on her decision to kill me (I keep telling her these are investments--when she does kill me, she can sell the collection and buy a far nicer house... ;D)

Huayangosaurus grabbing a snack before chilling with my other Stegosaurs.


The next Kaiyodo to arrive will be Copepteryx and he will stand alongside Diatryma with the other Theropods. :)

 :) Oh good, I'm not the only husband using the same line & logic to justify himself to his long suffering wife.  :)

I would like to say that there are certain times of the year that are light on collecting (finding stuff to buy) but so far I've yet to find one...

I walked into my local hobby store last night with my son while the wife was next door buying swim googles for our daughter and they were unpacking a portion of their new Safari figures so I was able to get the Vagaceratops and Dracorex! Let the eye-rolling spouse sequence commence...

I tell my b/f the same thing, but he always just looks skeptical..  :(
My living room smells like old plastic dinosaur toys... Better than air freshener!

Yeah, my wife banned me to buy dinosaur when she found our room is surrounded by all dinosaurs. But she at least loves one of the herds. Right, Invicta Mamenchisaurus.

You guys made me feel very left out the other day, showing off all your fancy dinosaur expo guanlongs.. So of course I had to get one:
