I wish I had that version of the T. rex instead of the bland brown one.

Nice addition to your collection. The PNSO tyrannosaurus vinyl version is a great figure and I think that among collectors her vinyl figure is not yet valued enough for being something retro, however it is a figure that is in the acceptable term and bordering on notoriety.

I really like that older PNSO rex, there is something unique about it. I ended up getting the new Wilson V2 ;D I like it very much.

ADDITIONS

Picked these two up just days before the latest lockdown here. Have not set foot in a department store for seven weeks now (they're all closed). Another Mattel Ceratopsian which is a new arrival to the shelves, well pegs, here. Saw the Coelurus when it first appeared ages ago but it was gone before I got back to it. Did not make the same mistake on its re-appearance.


Found this unbranded curiosity on Ali Express. Definitely a modified interpretation, shall we say, of the IToys Diloph. They've corrected the hands but otherwise it has several traits that we can thank the curruption of this animal that its appearance in Jurassic Park brought about.


I plan to repaint it (especially the head) to more resemble the IToys and make a pair of them.


Another I missed out on when it was first listed, sold out before I could get my order in; but now it's back (along with an extension of the Gosnell range) and I was able to add another large rubber marine reptile to the collection.


And then there's this - one I thought out of my reach but it landed on the doorstep two days ago thanks to me learning that there was a local distributer of these here in Australia and they have a payment plan! Now I'm sure I'll never own the magnificent Sideshow Apatosaurus but this will have to do...now to find a space for it!!


The only other Apatosaurus to come close in size is the big ol' grey Schleich, which is still about 10% smaller than the Nanmu (closer to the camera here so looks bigger than it actually is in comparison).


However, it dwarfs every other Apatosaur that you care to place next to it, for instance:

Congrats on the acquisitions. I had no idea the Nanmu Apatosaurus was so large. Has to be impressive in person I would imagine.

The bootleg IToy Dilophosaurus is interesting too, if not at least the fact they went out of their way to correct the hands.

A good haul. I hadnít realised how big the Nanmu Apatosaurus was either. Itís impressive and captures the feel of the weight of a massive animal.

@PhilSauria I congratulate you on your new acquisitions, Nanmu's apatosaurus impresses me a lot. If it didn't have the tail unglued and it wasn't so enormously big, I'd certainly buy it.

The reposed knockoff Dilophosaurus looks pretty fun, I'm tempted to get one.

Congrats, Phil,... that Nanmu Apatosaurus is a real beaut, with that paint scheme it looks like the big, spiced up brother of the old Bullyland one :)

Wow, that Nanmu Apatosaurus is a behemoth. Is that Gosnell mosasaur properly hollow, or does it have stuffing or wadding inside?

I'd say that is has stuffing inside. Although there is some give when you sqeeze it the thing is otherwise quite firm, and there's no air hole underneath which is probably the main clue to its construction. I have the two big Apatosaurs (even though labelled 'Diplodocus') and it's the same deal for them.
