Dino Riders Return!
« on: October 01, 2020, 07:32:54 PM »
Hello all.  It's been a while since I posted but this needs to be pushed.  Mattel is bringing back Dino Riders at least in some fashion.  Not exactly like the original but I'll take anything I can get and I'm all in on these.  Art work is amazing.  Thoughts?

It's not quite the dream but at least it's something. I think I'm more excited for the box. Can't help but notice tho that there are rulons on dinosaurs without brain boxes and valorians on dinosaurs with brain boxes so not sure they even bothered to look at the source material. My guess would be this release has something to do with copyright laws? Hopefully it gains some traction tho, I'll be ordering 2 boxes.

I think there’s already a thread about this...

My theory is that matels copyright may have been nearing expiry in a country or 2 if they didn't do something with it. So they chucked this out too avoid anyone else being able to do anything with it? I noticed it went pretty quiet from the guys who thought they might be able to do some statues.

I watched a review of the new Dino Riders. I thought they looked pretty good for the price. I'm quite excited that my 4 year old will have some Dino Riders he can play with and not just look at. It seems the box has somewhere that tells a bit of the premise and clearly states that the rulons cruelly enslave the dinosaurs with brain boxes which makes the valorian on a brain boxed dino all the more stranger. On the whole I am still very excited that something is actually happening with "Dino Riders".

The box set has been released and I did a full review.  I hope you find it informative.

Well it's still kind of strange tho, if this series is on a comeback I'd hope they pick up the old pace but with more accurate dino's of what we all know how they would of looked like today
As my overall view of this new set it's more of an insult from what we had back then, the lack of multiple colors  separate armor and   many more things to mention, I just hope this  a demo of where this series might be going and that the final details, the separate models will be as be old ones, better in scale with the riders would also be nice, the figures on the T.rex see way too large in comparison of the T.rex it's self.

Like you mentioning on using the JP & JW Dino's that can certainly work or even better to create their own dino line  but similar to scale from the vintage DR line of toys.

Personally I won't buy this set, I really don't like it enough to add to my original DR Set, it's not the direction I had hoped this franchise would return with.
Also being a Rulon Warrior set why isn't the box light purple, also something weird.

The Valorian/Dino-Riders dino's are green they could of been made Blue  since the Rulons are purple, not that this is a shameful difference it's somewhat strange of choice
All in all  it's cool to see this line come to life, but I don't know what to see good in it t be very honest it's all minimal and lacking in many ways.


Good to see you around Ted, it's been a while.

I got mine the scale is like the Dinosaurier schlacht with 1/72 scale valorian and rulons. Not clear if the sauropod is a diplodocus or apatosaurus. The saurolophus looks like a parasaurlophus.

I want Boki to paint some and post.

Good figures needs some game rules.
You can never have too many dinosaurs

I'm pretty sure the "saurolophus" and the "deinonychus" got switched at some point so that the Rulon wouldn't have all the "cool" dinosaurs. if so, it's too bad. They could've release another set with both "triceratops" and "deinonychus", but this time without brain boxes ; and everyone would've been fine with it.

Got my own set last week. So glad i'm finally able to get some small Dino Riders figure.

However, i'm a bit disappointed by the lack of consistency for the model's artstyle : While the "Pterodactyl" and "Deinonychus" are a bit too cartoony, the sauropod has a very modern look to it, unlike what's depicted on the box's artwork. . .

Anyway, i really hope they'll make another set by next year ; with a swann-neck, tail-dragging brontosaur ; and one pachyrhinosaur with an oversized-horned too !

I just notice and got my own set of these, they really came out of left field.

There’s actually some nice little details but also some weird errors, I’m temped to pick up a second set to give them all paint jobs.
