My version 3 Tyrannosaurus is finally showing signs of being tipsy. It isn't due to the lack of massiveness (relatively) or stiffness in the plastic in the legs, but rather due, apparently, to flexing in the toes of the right side foot. Ah, the curse of the theropods is striking again!

By the way, does anyone know of a good, economical source on eBay or otherwise of some clear plastic/acrylic rod to act as support for tipsy rexes?

Which rex? I use one of these figure stands to help my Battat Tyrannosaurus stand:

Interesting product -thanks for the suggestion. But to answer your question directly, pretty much most T-rexes without stands and many other theropods besides. They most all tend to become unstable sooner or later. However, for the time being, I'm looking for some straight, clear plastic rod to do the job. I'd cut it to size. Have you used this material at any point in your theropod adventures?

I've had the "keep standing" problem with almost all my PNSO figures.

The first T. rex "Wilson" on the base, the Yangchuanosaurus looks like it sprained his ankle, the Spinosaurus popped out of it's base and the Mamenchisaurus has a hard time standing up. Even the Amargasaurus has some issues.
And of course the Giganotosaurus already fell over quite fast.

That being said, I still love the PNSO figures, and consider them the best in my collection. But these problems should be adressed in the design process.

But perhaps the hairdryer solution could help a bit.

I also acknowledge that I have problems with the yangchuanosaurus from PNSO and the giganotosaurus and spinosaurus of the same brand have sustainability problems. The same can be said of the first two editions of Tyrannosaurus Wilson, the third edition that I bought a few days ago does not have sustainability problems. In that PNSO must take action. It is one of my favorite dinosaur brands but that problem can harm it as a business for customer purposes.

For the rest, the PNSO sauropods (mamenchisaurus and amargasaurus) in my case fortunately do not suffer from sustainability problems.

I have Wilson, Doyle, Essien, Lucio, and Lucas. No standing issues for them. I picked up a few twigs from my back yard and trimmed them for size to use as supports for Wilson and Lucas. In my opinion, they blend in better than a plastic rod. Helps that summer is pretty mild this year. Lucas did fall over once when we had 100F days last year. I had since improved his supports.

Mild in terms of temperature.
We did get hit by a derecho storm.
Wind speeds were peaked at 140 mph.

The props for Wilson and Lucas in case someone is curious...

Well, this repaint went unnoticed (unless it hasn't, in which case my bad): credits to https://www.facebook.com/Paleofiguras/ for the photos.

On and off dinosaur collecting phases over the span of millions of years has led me to this very forum.

Darn, really thought I'd gotten somewhere :)) Shame these were so limited, I would've had this scheme as the standard release over the original any day: greener, bluer colour scheme would really contrast Wilson well. :P

What could this be? Looks like a Tuojiangosaurus to me.

EDIT: Never mind, saw it's been revealed in another thread, sorry.

The more I want the spinosaurus and the less I want the pachyrrhinosaurus  ::).

I really love that huge tail, and the long nails I don't know if they are accurate or not, but it's an interesting addition. Colours are really striking and very plausible for an acuatic animal (that is not grey or blue). The back limbs remind me of a walking croc, but gracile and proportionate.

If anyone is looking to get the Yangchuanosaurus Chunkingosaurus set it's on sale for quite a bit less than usual in the 11.11 sale on Aliexpress, as well as the 2020 models being on sale. About $45 for unboxed.

I just got the Spinops from Amazon US, and it seems they have modified the paintjob a bit. The wash on the face is gone. The frill is not as brightly colored and the dark stripes along the edge have been reduced to very short points. The stripes down the back are brown instead of dark green. The stripes also have a more irregular looke to them, more natural looking. Overall the bright yellow-orange color has been reduced to a few areas, with most of the contrast coming fom a light cream color. They also painted claws on the outer two digits on the front feet (hands I guess)
