Exciting! But I don't even have to look at the prices to know I won't be able to afford these. And doesn't Mattel own the rights to Dino Riders? How does the legality of the project work?

For some reason I thought they were making action figures too, oh well. That's a nice pteranodon though.

Action Figures will probably be very far down the line, if they're happening at all.

They just have to license the use from Mattel, who may only have rights for toys, not statues or collectibles..unsure on that one.

I don't see any reason to assume the figures aren't happening, it was just announced.  They could possibly use David's existing super poseable figures and create armor for them?

Well the quote says they are in "early talks", which basically means nothing has been written or signed yet. It's very possible it'll fall through, anything from David not liking the pay to MV Studios changing their minds. Until we get some official confirmation, it might be best not to get too excited.

I mean glass half full is just as good as half empty, David said he was talking with them.  I'm happy with really nice high end statues as well. Mainly I would focus on the dino/character combo pieces, not just dinosaurs and not just Valorians and Rulons. 
I don't really get excited anymore, there could be a million dollars on my door step and  I would wonder what the catch is..lol

Yep, first we should see how this develops.  As for Action Figures, weell, I guess Mattel would probably not make any soon, given that they have the Jurassic license, which makes them more money. The name Dino Riders is currently used for a series of Hot Wheels:
https://hotwheels.fandom.com/wiki/Dino_Riders
It works for some of them work better than others...
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

Well this is quite the surprise, never expected seeing a DR Revival project even many have passed none of them really came out.
So I will remain rather curious to how this one will go, that 3D Rendered art of Serena is definitively amazing looking that be true.

But then again that Ptera doesn't really look like the original Ptera we all know from 1987, or how the Armor is attached to the Ptera figure for that part alone.

But okay new concept some new changes I could accept that< Serena on the other hand looks lifelike, even it's a computer rendered image.

Yeah I will surely look in to this more often :)
David Silva is a friend of mine, I know him since Dan LoRusso

And I met and he was one of my admins of my community at Facebook, well great to see new development for this then <3

seems to be on hold pending licensing issues now
