Really liking these Grab and Go Rexes. I will probably pass on these and wait for the other two colorations. Does anyone know the expected date for those to come out?

Honestly, the two 1:35 scale tyrannosaurus rex are very nice figures, they are appetizing, but I prefer to reserve the money for the carnotaurus, ekrixinatosaurus and smilodon of Rebor for the price of four of those tyrannosaurus I can buy (I suppose) any of the other three figures. Undoubtedly, in my case, I am more interested in unpublished prehistoric animals such as the ehrixinatosaurus or the smilodon, which will surely be the best figure I will have of that saber-toothed cat or even the carnotaurus in that new version based on the Disney movies.

Hmm... indeed.... I love that sculpt from laterl view, but really, dorsal view
looks very off and emaciated. Will think again of purchasing that one....

Yeesh. I thought it was so-so before; now itís genuinely poor. Itís especially odd given how none of Reborís fantasy T. rexes appear to be anywhere near that skinny.

Well I guess since I don't intend to display it on its side I can live with it. I wonder if it was as much a decision to keep cost of materials down as it was an aesthetic choice.

It does look way skinnier than I anticipated. If they were to add quite a bit of weight to it, this Tyrannosaurus could have been one of the best representations of it on the market. They even have a clear plastic stand for it, you would think they could add some more weight to the poor fella.

If you're planning to display it only from the left or right side, a cut out photo, glued on card board, would be your cheapest choice. 
Same viewing pleasure, and just as thin.

I kid, I kid!  ;D

It IS startlingly thin. I was wondering what the concern was about until I looked at the dorsal aspect that that the reviewer has displayed. I know that Araki, for instance,  has sculpted some quite lean and mean figures for Favorite in the past, especially his Allosaurus (v. 2), but wow, this figure caught me by surprise.

Sure is nice to see how much Rebor Really Cares about there so called "Accurate" Rexes Compared to there Fictional ones ::)
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Good gracious it looks like a whippet.

Yes we are fully capable of creating very scientifically accurate figures

The good news is through making those "awesomebro" figures over the years we've managed to save some money to launch the GNG line which offers affordable and scientifically accurate figures

The two color variants of tyrannosaurus rex can now be preordered at shop.modellpferdeversand.de They will be available in September.

On the other hand the three variants of mountain gorilla "I call them King Kong" are available at shop.modellpferdeversand.de in November but your preorder is now available.

Thanks I'll take a look at those Kong jacksoni
