By the way, the size will be Mattel's mosasaurus quite expensive, I suppose.

The Mosasaurus was only $30, which is really cheap considering I paid about the same amount for just one of those much smaller (though highly detailed and articulated) BotM raptors in the same pic. And for its size it almost seems like a stuffed animal, only it isn't stuffed.

I think once I get everything cleaned up, and moved into place, then I'll take a new pic of the BotM collection's new home.

I'm holding off on taking a pic of the BotM shelf for now since I want to wait until I have the other three raptors I've ordered (later this month, if not early June), and have their packaging backgrounds out on display.

Anyways my JP - JW species collection is halfway done now. I just need the Wave 2 and 3 things (the Roarivores Ankylosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and Pteranodon, the Attack Pack Herrerasaurus, and the Legacy Collection Dilophosaurus, Gallimimus, and Spinosaurus. Possibly the Pachyrhinosaurus toy).  I'm planning on picking up the Legacy Collection TLW Velociraptor and baby Tyrannosaurus, and maybe the humans with the compies next.

You have been busy; quite a collection! Sadly still no sign of the Mosasaurus over here yet, though the Colossal rex is around. Contemplated paying it off as a layby ($99 Australian!) - but where would I put it?! For that amount I could come close to more PNSOs or the Vitae Giganotosaurus so don't think I'll be buying the rex.

I'm totally passing on the Super Colossal rex just because I honestly have no idea where I would even put the thing, although it is a pretty cool thing. I might get the Thrash and Throw later, but it won't be in my display with my other figures from this line (not when I still need space for the Spinosaurus, etc). Hopefully you can find and get the Mosasaurus. It's definitely worth owning. It's also the only thing that isn't on display with my other figures due to its size (it stays there on my bed, the one in the top pic).

Although I am not a buyer of the figures of JP must recognize that they are very good. I congratulate you Faelrin for your acquisitions and your extraordinary collection.

After about two years from when the Kickstarter ended for these, here it is now, all the figures I ordered arrived safely and put on display finally:


Here is the shot of the shelf with all four "scenes" on display:


Here is the desert "scene" (took me the longest amount of time setting up I think):


Here's the mountain "scene" (took me the second longest amount of time setting up, back when I got the shelf):


Wetland scene:

I congratulate you on your acquisitions of dinosaurs the feathered raptors of the series The Beasts of the Mesozoic are very well achieved.

They are great for making prehistoric dioramas.

Some new pics of my most recent Jurassic Park/Jurassic World species collection:







Only one not pictured is the Mosasaurus which is on my bed (though can be seen in some of my older pics here).

Although I do not buy JW / JP figures, the ones I like most about this lot are carnotaurus, tyrannosaurus, baryonyx, triceratops, stygimoloch, pteranodon and tyrannosaurus rex, which are very well finished.

Quite a flock! I expect they'll soon outnumber the rest of your collection  :))

They definitely will be by the time I'm done with this year's assortment and next year's. Although I'm hoping to get back on track with some more Safari Ltd figures later this year, or early next year (maybe any of those long overdo CollectA and/or Papo figures). As much as I love the JP/JW creatures (and action figures), I really like modern takes on these animals as well, since it brings us a little bit, or a lot more closer to how these animals may have been in life.

So I've been busy getting more Mattel Jurassic World/Park stuff this past week. I'm pretty caught up now until the new Legacy, Battle Damage, and wave 3 Attack Packs hit stores near me, give or take a few other select items (Lava Surge Playset, Legacy Spinosaurus which is no longer being stocked by Target in the US, etc).

So here's some pics (the only things not shown are the Imaginext Egg dinosaurs, since I had no room to get them in the pic):

@Faelrin What nicer figures you have JW / JP dinosaurs is sincerely a great brand of toys that makes these figures. I congratulate you on your collection. In my case it is a serious defect that I have hardly any figure of this fantastic collection of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals.

Here's two new pics showcasing things from my Mattel JW collection. I nearly have every figure and species I want from 2018's assortment now:

Ok Faelrin, you've activated all my envy glands.  Great collection, and they all actually look good together.

But what is that yellowish raptor?  It seems to have a JP3 head.  I haven't been able to follow the JP thread, and the other waves of the figures never reached my country so....

Also, is the smaller pteranodon the legacy variant?

@ITdactyl The orange raptor with the JPIII raptor head is the Legacy Collection raptor (based off of TLW male raptors. The promo images of it had the better stripes, and of course if it had a different head sculpt it would be more on point, such as if it were a retool of Battle Damage Blue). The tan Pteranodon is the earlier Legacy Collection one, based off of the JPIII Pteranodon. There is another Legacy Collection Pteranodon that was recently released, but it didn't interest me enough to get it. There is also supposed to be a proper JPIII raptor (with quills) coming out eventually (hopefully). JPToys has a good list of figures, although it is a bit inaccurate and outdated in terms of release dates and waves.

Thanks for the info Faelrin.  Didn't realize the legacy pteranodon had variants.... 'might've ordered the wrong one... ugh.

The head sculpt and the color drew my attention to the raptor but the clownfeet was a turn-off (no offense meant to clowns).

So here's an update on my Safari Ltd collections, or at least most of them.  I have pictures of the rest elsewhere in this thread (such as the Toobs) or the non dino toys section (for the fantasy models I have from them). The wolf figure is also an older model from Schleich. The bison model is also the older (now retired?) one.

@Faelrin I congratulate you on the beautiful collection of Safari animals (since it includes animals that fortunately still coexist with us). You have a very good collection.

Nice collection!
