Looking good so far, you mean? Or did you notice an issue?

Great Review! Makes me want that corpse even more!
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

They are sold loose as well, at least here in the US.

I am so Envious of your local supermarket carring these things.

Quote
but CollectA produced so maney figures in such short period of time, its difficult to keep tabs on them all

I am a big CollectA fan, and pretty much, known every dinosaur model they made. And still learning.

have a qustion about a sculpt, let me know, and I will see if i can answer ;)

Review for the 1988 Carnegie Diplodocus. Enjoy. A note to other blog authors, my pictures can still be clicked on to view larger versions. Am I supposed to turn that feature off and if so how? Thanks.

Great review Gwangi. Thanks!

Under the old format, we used to remove links. But given the new layout, I rather like having the images open full size on a new page. So let's keep it. I'm not sure if this feature is possible with links to images hosted outside of wordpress though. I'll check.

Another thing is that the image page titles are meaningless numbers, presumably based on the image file names. Maybe you could rename image file names in the future. I use a standard format: genus_company1.jpg, genus_company2.jpg, etc. for most of my images. This will make the image page titles less random, and also means that search engines are more likely to pick them up, so they will get more views 8)

I've got the photos for the Papo Tylosaurus review, just need to get down to writing it  8)

Also, I've ordered the Favorite Oldies 1850's Iguanodon, and plan to get more (particularly the Brachiosaurus).

Would it be ok to submit a review for them?
