Wan Long Tang: New for 2018
« on: August 13, 2018, 06:04:46 AM »
I don't think we have a proper topic about this yet, but for starting out with a piece as high-quality as this, I am certainly looking forward to their later releases.
I also know most individuals are tired of JP-inspired Rexes, but for something so close to a Stan Winston maquette and at an affordable price-point, I thought this brand and figure definitely deserved its own post.
According to in-hand photos and reviews, this figure is solid, light-weight PVC (thanks @BrontoScorpio), the colors are a little less saturated than stock photos, and it has an overall better paint application and detail than the I-Toy doe.

BRAND : W-Dragon
SPECIES : Tyrannosaurus Rex [Buck - The Lost World]
SCALE : 1/35

Yeah, saw David's review on JC the other day. I'd buy that but on following the links you provided (thanks, very helpful) it's another one a tad out of my price range, unfortunately.

Fixed. And the resin is only the volcanic-looking base.
@BrontoScorpio thank you!

Yeah too pricey for me, but I'm honestly really glad someone went with the bull/buck rex's color scheme for once. Even the Papo green one wasn't quite right.

UPDATE: JUST GOT MINE IN THE MAIL.
Also, added Andy's dinosaur review to top post.

BEAUTIFUL FIGURE. The paint application as well as the sculpt totally make up for the light-weight feel of the figure.
Absolutely gorgeous and would recommend to everyone.

I'll stand by my statement that this is one of the closest things to a Stan Winston maquette that you can find for the price-point.
$87.00 on Ali (where I ordered it).

High-quality photos coming soon.

The quality of the tyrannosaurus is imposing and its painting is impeccable and sincerely having a base of resin and being a tyrannosaurus to a 1:35 scale, within what fits is a cheap figure.

I look at the price tags on some of these figures and wonder how some collectors can afford them - clearly in better paying jobs than I am. It's getting to the point where if it's not the cost of the figures then it's the insane shipping costs to get them to me here in Australia and I am seriously considering packing it all in and undertaking a less expensive hobby!

Hello @PhilSauria! I tend to look at it as buying several figures at once. The price and quality for this figure, for me, is wonderful. I would gladly give up my three Papo rexes (which would total to the same price) for this guy. Just save up and don't buy for a bit. :)

THANK YOU @acro-man!!!! It looks gorgeous! I am happy to see that they are not only producing movie-inspired figures, but also scientifically accurate one's! They could have easily gone for the Jurassic World Allo, and yet this one looks brilliantly accurate.

Thanks Mgaguilar for the perspective on that, I had kind of been using that rationale when I was working my way through acquiring some of those big PNSO figures (until I hit the wall of price range on the last few I wanted - they weren't coming down into what I was prepared to pay, even though what I'd been paying was higher than I'd usually outlay). Guess I've just had a run of financial issues lately combined with seeing one too many listing of figures of interest to me that were saddled with either a big price tag and sometimes even bigger shipping cost, so yeah that was getting to me. Oh and another point I have to remember - don't post with this stuff on your mind at the time you have been drinking!

@acro-man THE REAL MVP!!! Thank you!!! Will update the first post with images.
That Spinosaurus looks eerily similar to Rebor's, though I guess they are based on the same sculpt, with the same digital modeling program.

Ooh, the Allo is intriguing.
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.

@Halichoeres I am very excited about the Allosaurus. Doesn't seem to be based off of any pop-culture references, like the other two are.
Unless I am completely missing something.

Yeah, it doesn't look obviously like any particular Allosaurus I've seen. The only thing I can spot immediately wrong with it is that the first claw on the hand is probably too short.

Looks like everything bursts out all of a sudden these days

W-Dragon Allosaurus ""Gwangi" incoming!!!

Description:
W-Dragon's "Gwangi" is a tribute to the Allosaurus in the classic movie "The Valley of Gwangi". 
Its main color is Gwangi's iconic grey blue. The design combines modern reconstruction of Allosaurus and the modeler's unique understanding of the species. What's more, it provides a new combination of materials. Most of the dino is PVC, while the legs are polystone. This is expected to solve the stability issue once and for all.

Very nice Allo....although I guess it's a tribute in name only (since it doesn't resemble Gwangi at all, at least to my eyes :) ).
