These figures really shine when seen in context and as a large group like your collection, impressive collection!

Wow! Soon you won't have room to turn around in your room! :)

@Halichoeres Yeah my room is packed with stuff from my various collections at this point (and aquariums, etc). I have just enough walking space to tend to things thankfully (collection, aquariums, my cat), when I'm not sitting down on my bed. Part of the issue is it being such a small room to begin with when I moved here years ago (although it was fine then, before I got into collecting as much as I have now, and before the addition of a 29 gallon aquarium too). Although if I could get some things I don't need put into storage at some point, it would make for some more room of course. Maybe later this year I'll get around to doing something about it.

Great collection.
I'm not generally interested in JW minis, but this green archosaur on the front-left catched my eye. Which species is it representing? In which packages was it available?

@Megalosaurus That's the Postosuchus. You might still be able to find this one in stock (it's a 2018 wave 3 mini). The code (on the package it is in) for it is 15680BR3. Hope that helps.

Thanks, I'll hunt it asap.

I took these shots on the 16th to celebrate one year of Mattel's Jurassic World line (which I first posted on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwUw4WEFpkU/ ). If only my Coelurus came a few days sooner, but regardless, glad to have it now.











And the newest addition, the Coelurus:




The only things not pictured here that is from Mattel's Jurassic World line that I have, is the all the little Imaginext egg dinos, and the few Matchbox mini's (jeep, explorer, submarine), although all of those can be seen in older pics here. That's because I forgot to add them. Well that and the Baryonyx mini that I still have yet to find in my room. One of these days.

I said this before, but this only proves it. You have the best Jurassic World collection here.

Also I wish I could upload pictures of my collection on instagram to celebrate one year of Mattel´s toys like you, but some of my friends will probably use it to make fun of me. ::)

Thank you. It was definitely a lot of work putting together that group display to get those pics too.

And sorry to hear that.

Just another quick small update to my collection. Running out of space now, but still finding new ways to make room for more.







I have the black and yellow BD Pteranodon, and BD Plesiosaurus on the way. I still need to get the Mussaurus and Proceratosaurus, and Indominus rex to be caught up (give or take a few other things like those hard to get Legacy story packs), until more new stuff comes out later this year (such as Echo, the Mononykus, and the Brachiosaurus).

Wow, they look really impressive when seen all together like that, and how good does that Raptor pack look!

Nice work to amass all of these, that's a collection to be very pleased with. Just wish that Mattel had put as much work into the distribution of these as they have into creating such an impressive line of figures.

I totally agree with you on the distribution. I'm just lucky I have had the money at times and the opportunities to get what I have so far, because of how poor it has been worldwide. Several of the things in this collection have come out of country (Spino from the UK, the Destruct=A-Saur raptor set from Canada that @stargatedalek helped me out with, the Lockwood Manor set [and Maisie, and the Attack Pack Dilophosaurus, and now the yellow and black BD Pteranodon] from Germany, and the BD Plesiosaurus is coming from Guatemala), and have cost me a pretty penny mostly due to international shipping fee's. I still have my eyes on those rare Legacy Story Packs as well, even if they have been poorly done, if only because they will likely be harder to get later on. Hopefully I get a chance at getting them from GMarket before it is too late.

Edit: In turn I have also helped others get things they have wanted as well. So while the distribution sucks, at least something good has come from it, for me, such as building wonderful connections within the Jurassic toy community.

Yeah, I've looked at picking up some of the Mattels outside of Australia, especially that Suchomimus (which I'd love to get hold of but probably never will), but the shipping is insane! On more than one occasion the shipping and fees cost more than the figure so I've had to pass.

But you are right about the contacts you make in sourcing things from other places, that can be a win / win in as much as you get what you are after (although sometimes at a cost) but you make a new friend, as has been the case in my experience as well in acquiring older figures or some only available in certain regions. I've given up trying to source older figures these days - especially when there is so much new material coming at us!

Soon you will need to begin affixing dinosaurs to the walls and ceiling, as your room inexorably shrinks!

I'm probably going to have it at the foot of my bed. The Mosasaurus and big theropods (plus Roarivore Pteranodon and Quetzalcoatlus) already have the side next to the wall, that I don't sleep on.

So I wasn't really sure where to post these pics that I got over the past week from my stay in NY at my dad's cousin and wife's house, and the various trips we took. I will at least have some more from a trip to the museum in Gilboa in another thread that I'll be making later or tomorrow. But for now here's some pics of my new Battle Damage Plesiosaurus at my dad's other cousin's pond that we visited on the 4th (and again on the 6th but I did not take any pics then), and some pics from Utsayantha Mountain. I still have yet to post the pics from when I visited Mt. Greylock at the end of May (which was the day after my grandmother, on my mother's side of the family, passed away), though they can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bx5dililZQS/

I love the Plesiosaurus pictures.  He looks right at home!

Splendid mountain views too - it looks a beautiful area to visit.
