Aha Takama, you found the red one! I like it too. I posted mine in the 'Recent Acquisitions" thread. I guess I should've posted it here as well. But now with yours, we have it represented.  :D

I also haven't compared it yet with my green one. It kind of looks like Schleich might have made the feet a bit smaller on the red one? Albeit still incorrect in many areas, I do like his overall appearance, especially the head.

Oh Walmart now has a Exclusive color of there First T.Rex





It def looks better in red.

Schleich also got rid of those suppurative lesions on the back of T-rex's neck :)

Given that Schleich released a gold Tyrannosaurus, the comparison to a certain kind of polishing seems valid :-X

Hmm... red, green and gold. Looks like we'll be ready for Xmas decorating!  ;)

CityRaptor, you mentioned you saw the red one on some German sites, but they weren't Walmart sites, right? Just wondering since the one I picked up at my Walmart has that tag on it that says "Exclusive". (Although, it doesn't say a Walmart Exclusive.)

Just a FYI I did not buy one. I just found a Empty shelf in the store and took a picture to post on here.    When I first saw it, I was aw struck and I almost had my mom buy it as a Birthday gift (which is this coming Friday) But I Told myself that I only wanted one T-Rex for Schelichs World of History Line. and the original Green one was boring to me, So I removed it from my display when I heard that a Resculpt was in the works.   At this time, I have the resculpt, and I did not want any other double species in this collection. This is why I Did not buy it.       
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Ahh, now I see. That's a store shelf.

Well personally I like the 2012 version (particularly the red one) better than their new sculpt. But to each their own.  :)
