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 :) ).

Oops! I thought these were two different models we are talking about :-\ .

Oh~ I just realised that. It's more of a spiritual tribute to the movie where the artist drew his early inspiration from.

Anddddd the votes are in and @acro-man is once again the MVP. Thank you all for playing.

...but in all seriousness, holy-bajesus that Allosaurus. I swear W-Dragon is having an amazing opening run.

As an Allosaurus fan this seriously tickles my fancy. Too often they end up looking ugly or derpy. This is just gorgeous!

No, it doesn't. Probably has more in common with REBOR's Y-rex than that Gwangi depiction.

I couldn’t resist any longer...I have preordered Gwangi! It’s been an expensive month :o

@Minmiminime very nice! I may be in for one too soon. It's gorgeous.
My wallet is going to be burned with this and Rebor + PNSO releases.
Here we go.

Wow, that is seriously the best Allosaurus model I have ever seen! And it's in PVC! The pose is so dynamic, and I like how they made they leg out of resin to prevent the need for a brace and warping.  I have yet to get an Allosaurus for my collection because there isn't really a good one out there (the Papo of is close, but has a couple glaring issues such as the incorrect skull and pronated arms), but that's about to change. Now I really hope he comes out with a Stegosaurus to pair with it

@acro-man , I sent you a PM about preordering

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. :)

Here's a preview of their next release - Allosaurus

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.

Glad to see I'm not the only one amassing the rebor Acros only to resell them when I have very little money to get a much more expensive figure lol.

Honestly this allosaurus is in my priority list with the PNSO Giganotosaurus and Spino. Once I get those hopefully more PNSO stuff and I'm hoping this company doesn't release a Giganotosaurus just yet I'm already crying lol

Ahahaha, that's why I've got a few doubles. Honestly, people in the local area buy them up pretty quickly because of the unique details.
And my man, you gotta make up your mindddd. Isn't coverage of the Carcharodontosauridae exactly what you wanted? As well as commercial availability?
If W-Dragon introduces a Giganotosaurus, you best bet it'll be up there with the greats.

My wallet has already been burned with all the recent rexes I obtained. And I LOVE it.

Hey guys, I made a comparison of the anticipated Spinosaurus figures (their Z-Brush prototypes) and added the Jurassic Park III Spinosaurus render.
JPIII at top, obviously, with W-Dragon at the middle, and Rebor at the bottom.
W-Dragon seems to be skin and folds, and Rebor's seems to be scaly.

The Giganotosaurus is my primary concern but I do wanna see some Carcharodontosaurus figures out there. Sadly I think the Carcharodontosaurus won't be a thing for maybe the next 5 years

I don't know if that's true. Carcharodontosaurus is a bit more obscure than most of the other super-predator huge theropods out there, but it is literally one of the biggest.
I think it has a high chance of being done again. CollectA's first go at a deluxe was beautiful, and I'm waiting for a popular figure with a slender snout (like some of the newer stylized skull representations).

That is brilliant, thank you @RobinGoodfellow ! I thought this figure was going to be attached to it's base as a statue, and I was excited enough for it then!! Seeing it in the hand like this has me even more excited ;D

That is a magnificent figure! Being particularly fond of Allosaurus I will check this out but suspect it may be a tad un-affordable for me.
