You are right that is silly, where are the cargo straps?

I'm guessing that you need it anyway? After all, it's the only Takara TOMY plesiosaur I'm aware of!

This reminds me of something I saw when searching Hobby Link Japan:
http://www.hlj.com/product/tkt35966/Aut

Obviously a model of a truck transporting a Dinosaur model...
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

Interesting! Perhaps somebody just felt really inspired by the sight of a truck transporting a life-sized fiberglass dinosaur to a museum?

The life sized Hansa Archaeopteryx is on offer. Pretty neat.

I had that on my wish list for a while, but I decided that Large Plush animals would be a hassle in my house.
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Jurassic World lego is now available from Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=jurassic+world+lego

It would be nice to feature reviews of these on the blog if anyone is interested?

I was looking up JW and found a proper dinosaur action figure! Kaiyodo Legacy of Revoltech: LR-022 Tyrannosaurus Figure

Ha. I don't know how this joke went unremarked.

Finally!!! Someone with a similar sense of humour must be our museum backgrounds.

'cause you know if you worked in some museum departments you had to have shipped some odd shipments, like this one. That's me on the left in the green shirt. I even got to ride on the flat bed and give my best royal wave to onlookers.

Maybe it's just that we're so used to just being able to press the "like" button we forget to acknowledge jokes.

I actually haven't sent that many weird things from the museum myself, but other people here definitely do. Visiting exhibits look like quite the ordeal. The weirdest shipments I've dealt with were when I worked retail.

I wish my museum "career" was exciting as yours! I spent an afternoon helping feed the live galleries turtles are garter snakes :P

Alas, only because it is a duplicate of the Wild Safari version:

So it is! Is it a knock-off then, or is this a Safari Ltd endorsed product?

Good question! Maybe I can find out. I might guess there's some bootlegging going on, but maybe I just get that impression because the box says "Triceratops".
