After seeing that T. rex should we change the title of the thread to "Bullyland - New for 1950"?

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

For a vintage-style figure, it doesn't look too bad.

Yep. Funny thing is that it was originally released in the same line as a more modern take on Allosaurus and a feathered Velociraptor. It and the Stegosaurus are the most old school of that line.

I have the mini version of that T. rex, I gave it to my daughter. I didn't find it shelf worthy.

By the way, is there news that Bullyland reissues her vintage mammoth calf? I am interested in that figure.

The negative of Bullyland is that the new Bullyland figures are reedictions of some old and other vintage quite imperfect as the tyrannosaurus rex. On the other hand it will be necessary to see if your mosasaurus is worthy for a collector or even for a child or for both. ´

The positive thing about Bullyland is that he has risen. I considered him dead and that is cause for celebration by many members of DTF, among whom I am fortunately.

Well, a vintage-style T.rex like this releasing in the year 2020 is absolutely not thrilling by any means. Some might even say it's...bad?

Hoping this is just Bullyland trying to get their foot back in the door, but come on man. I just hate to see a company insist on mediocrity after we've seen long ago what Bullyland is capable of with the Paratypothorax, Mastodonsaurus, and Chalicotherium to name a few of their good 15-20 year old figures. And they also long ago released a much better Tyrannosaurus.

Ugh. Impress me Bullyland. Do something new and different, with heart. Otherwise what is the point?

Actually, that IS the mini version. And it is by no means vintage. It is not new,  either.

Thanks for the information! I've added it to the front page, although not the photos yet.

Nice to see the Icthyosaurus/Leptonectes be re-released, even if I doubt they'll re-release their other retired figures.

I've had mine for a good 7 or more years. Actually, I got it from you!

So 7 years is vintage? You know, Bullyland had some of their prehistoric animal figures from the 80s active for decades. ( They might still be, given that Bullyland seems to be a bit chaotic regarding their cataloge of still active figures ).  Retrosaurs don't die that easy...and if they are model kits: They don't stay dead!

Anyways, since the T.rex was posted here, why did not no one post the mammoth calf also on their Instagram?

@CityRaptor I'm glad that Bullyland has reissued the bullyland mammoth calf is the only missing figure of that brand, in monsterhouse it was sold out and I suppose that the price of that product would be scaling expensively. Thanks for the info.

 :o No one said that. I just stated how long I've had mine to illustrate that this is not a new release.

Fair enough. To quote Libraraptor:
And it is by no means vintage. It is not new,  either.

;D  I actually meant the Bullyland company.

Guess it applies to both. Which makes me wonder if we ever see their old model kits again.

Okay, here is my theory about the situation:
Bullyland has a new investor, but they are limited regarding the budget for new molds, so they are doing some repaints.  T.rex is an obvious choice due to Rex Appeal. And when it comes to a Rex in that size, it was either that one or the even older one:

The fact that other major companies have tripods too might have just encouraged them even more.
