Looks like that mastodon is trying to avoid extinction by hanging out with those extant animals...
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

Haha maybe.

Anyways, I did move it there to make room for the new arrivals (the Carnotaurus is currently in its previous location). I might have to cram the rest of the Cenozoic creatures over there in the future, for any other future Mesozoic arrivals. And it's odd because they are right next to the figures from the Cambrian and Prehistoric Sharks Toobs, along with the Ammonite and Coelacanth, etc.

Another update and complete look at my Mattel Jurassic collection so far (pics taken with my brand new LG v40 thinQ phone):





A closer look at all of the herbivores with Blue and "Delta", with some space for the Dino Rivals that have yet to release (guess where the Parasaurolophus is going):



A closer look at most of the theropods/carnivores, with some space created for the Dino Rivals that have yet to release:



The large creatures that do not fit with the majority (and the Submarine) are kept on my bed (only the jeep + legacy human figures are kept elsewhere, but included for the pic):



The mini's with some other things (and some amiibo figures I have). Only the Baryonyx mini is missing, since that's hiding somewhere in my room:



As of now there are only a few 2018 things I have left to get (Battle Damage Pteranodon, STEM Fossil Strikers Pteranodon, Maisie with the T. rex skull, the Destruct-A-Saurs Velociraptor w/ Microceratus set, and if these are ever released, the Legacy Collection (squirter) Dilophosaurus, Legacy Collection (quilled JPIII) Velociraptor, and the Matchbox Dino Transporters Mosasaurus w/ Submarine set). I also just ordered the Grab and Growl Indoraptor on Amazon for about $10 last night, so that will be joining the group soon somewhere. I have no plans for the Thrash and Throw Tyrannosaurus, but it would be nice to get, but I doubt I'll be able to get it with the catching up I still have to do first. The new Dino Rivals Bite N Fight one appeals a bit more to me in terms of color scheme and the fact it doesn't have that stomping button (which is annoying and causes standing issues from what I've heard from others), even if I do like the electronic and thrashing features of that rex.

All that aside I now have one of each film species released for 2018 (I also have most of the other released species, and I'm only missing the Monolophosaurus, Dimetrodon, and Microceratus I believe, and the Dimetrodon and Microceratus did not see release in the US. Both the Dimetrodon and Monolophosaurus are getting Dino Rivals repaint/retools, so I'll be getting those when they come out. The only way to get the Microceratus is from one of those Destruct-A-Saur sets currently).

What a great collection. I would be very envious of you if it wasn't for the fact that I have as many things as you. ;)
As of now there are only a few 2018 things I have left to get (Battle Damage Pteranodon, STEM Fossil Strikers Pteranodon, Maisie with the T. rex skull, the Destruct-A-Saurs Velociraptor w/ Microceratus set, and if these are ever released, the Legacy Collection (squirter) Dilophosaurus, Legacy Collection (quilled JPIII) Velociraptor, and the Matchbox Dino Transporters Mosasaurus w/ Submarine set).

Me personally I have given up on getting it. It is really frustrating about that one because there is one that I could get from a Russian seller on eBay by 40, but I think that is too much for what it is. Also, I don't have either an eBay account or PayPal, so eBay orders have to go through my parents. And they want me to stop with the Jurassic toys now because I have already got too many things. ::)

@MLMjp Thanks. You sure do have quite the nice assortment too (especially if your recent haul is anything to go by).

You've done very well to amass such a collection of Mattels! Unfortunate that only a fraction of these were released over here, and the only way to pick them up was to pay the ransom demanded by the shipping services. Just as well I guess, just means less room I have to find in terms of display and / or storage not to mention the shape my bank balance would have been in!

Faelrin must have one of the most complete JP / JW dinosaur collections in the world. I congratulate you, it is very beautiful and that, unfortunately, I do not have any because I can not cover all toy dinosaur companies for space and economy.

So here's another updated look at this ever growing Jurassic World collection. I recently picked up the Bite N Fight rex when it was on sale the other day at Target, and since the person I got the family rex pack for did not need one any longer, I have to decided to open it up for myself, since I had yet to get one for myself. The other new additions are the Battle Damage Pteranodon and Dino Rivals Savage Strike Styracosaurus, and Grab and Growl Indoraptor, since the last time this was updated.

Here are some looks at the new figures and most of the rest of the collection (I have since moved the poster back to the wall where it was before after taking these pics):










I can't wait to get the (Destroy and Devour?) Indominus rex that was revealed, and have it on display with the rest of these big ones:



And here is a bonus pic I did not use for my Battle Damage Pteranodon review (consisting of my other favorite BD figures I have, Blue and Stiggy. I do not have the BD Albertosaurus yet, obviously, but that is sure to be another one of my favorites, as will the Plesiosaurus).

Your collection looks beautiful in these photos @Faelrin. So beautiful that I think is the best Jurassic World collection in this forum.
Is it me or the Jurassic World toys have brighter colors in America than in Europe? That or we have terrible light around here...

@MLMjp Thank you so much. That's like an honor. I think you have quite the selection here too.

The bright colors might just be from my new phone's camera. Or that I had my aquarium light + my blinds open (+ sunlight). It does looks a little more saturated then what my eyes pick up naturally in any case, so it may just be my camera doing it.

I'm really hoping I can find the Parasaurolophus and Concavenator tomorrow too (if not anything else I am missing from what is out for Dino Rivals right now). I got a space already made for the Para (between the Stego and green Pachy/Sino), and I'll try to shove the Concavenator somewhere next to the Roarivores.

Here's a quick little update of my collection, now that my stuff from a pal in Germany sent has come.

The stuff he sent:





I need to get around to dusting and cleaning the collection area again, but took a quick pic of everything looking nice (I have yet to open up Maisie, who will probably join Owen and baby Blue on the Blue vs Indoraptor set, and the Attack Pack Dilophosaurus):



Also yes I do have the Parasaurolophus standing up, which also helps make it more visible since it otherwise gets buried by the others. At this rate, I'm honestly surprised I still have room for some more from this line. I think after this year I'll have to be done with it all.

So I guess you haven't seen a Coelurus in the wild either yet, huh? That's the only one I've been looking for.

Nope no luck yet. Hopefully by next month or April. My stores in PA tend to get things later then most places for whatever reason. Hopefully by the time the Dimetrodon and Tapejara show up they will be common place.


Edit: I also checked stores in MA this weekend but no luck there either.

So just going to post a quick update on my Jurassic World mini collection since it is nearly complete now. Just need the Pachyrhinosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Pteranodon, Mosasaurus, and Allosaurus to have about one of each of the film species (that have been released in mini form so far). I might be checking another Target store tomorrow for the Ceratosaurus and Pachyrhinosaurus. I know the Allosaurus will be released again in the Dino Rivals blind bags, whenever they hit stores near me, so I'll have to try to hunt it down there. The others I'll need to get on ebay most likely.

Also sorry for the flash, but it was either that or very dim lighting (because of it being later in the afternoon and where the display is). Maybe tomorrow I can get better pics with better lighting.  Lastly my Baryonyx mini is kind of MIA for now, so that's why it isn't there with the rest of them.

Well since I got some more minis the other day, and the Dimetrodon I ordered off amazon came today, I decided it was time for another update/bunch of pics of this ever growing Jurassic World collection.

First up is the minis (I have nearly one of each film species that they have made minis out of now. Just missing the Allosaurus, Pteranodon, and Mosasaurus. If I want to additionally go for the rest of the species I would need to get the Metriacanthosaurus, and Suchomimus at this point). I also need to get around to finding out what I did with that Baryonyx mini. Shame it has to be missed out in these pics for now. It was a pain to get everything fitting there though, in all honesty, but at least it pays off well enough.




This was taken slightly before the Dimetrodon came (but it showcases the Gyrosphere Blast Vehicle I got a bit back, which now serves as storage for the cage pieces that came with the Destruct-A-Saur Velociraptor set, as well as the muzzle for the Legacy baby rex). If you also notice, the Imaginext egg figures have been moved. I forgot to take a pic of their new location, but I'll do that tomorrow. Also a sneak peek at some of my other figures (Safari Ltd fantasy figures, and some pops, and my small amiibo collection):



Now for the rest:
