    I got the Spino from Walmart about 2 weeks ago, and it was nice to buy a spino that isn’t overpriced. I have all three of the species, and while the Legacy Collection was good for its time, this new Spino looks SOOO much more screen-accurate. the white circles on the sail look nice, and it’s sand beige instead of solid gray. If anything, the Legacy Collection Spino looks more like a level 10 spino in Jurassic World: the Game than the 2001 dinosaur. If I had one critique, it’s that the new spino isn’t scientifically accurate. I would love it if Mattel could release a quadruped spino to match the real dinosaur. If Dominion features a realistic spinosaurus, excusing the old one as a “genetically enhanced” spino, I would be as happy as a clam. I know I’m asking a lot, but maybe make it sort of like a dual attack where it has the head strike of that suchomimus and the slash of the I. rex. shove some electronics into the mix and boom, you have a scientifically accurate dino. Horaay! regardless, the Spino is nice, not to mention the T. rex, which I don’t have yet, but I have a friend who saw him at Walmart, so watch the shelves if you are in a safe situation.

      Scientifically accurate? Jurassic Park/World dinosaurs aren’t “scientifically accurate”.

      In Alan Grant’s own words, “What John Hammond and InGen did at Jurassic Park is create genetically engineered theme park monsters”. That’s like asking for a scientifically accurate Dilophosaurus.

      Plus, scientists haven’t reached a consensus on some aspects still. For example, some say the distinctive neural spines of Spinosaurus were likely to have had skin connecting them, forming a sail-like structure, yet others say that the spines were covered in fat and formed a hump.

    The new spinosaurus and extreme damage t-rex is available at Ebay. (although it is overpriced)

    Wow, the new Rex has normally-articulated jaws? I didn’t expect that, that’s awesome! Chomping action features are all well and good, but there are so few larger-size figures with posable jaws. I would love to see more Battle Damage/Extreme Damage figures, particularly the larger size species (anything bigger than a Savage Strike). They’d be able to retool a lot of the existing molds to have battle damage, and it would free up the head/jaw to be normally articulated instead of tied to an action feature. Now, if they started doing battle damage AND capture gear on the same species, then we’d really be talking a retro feel.

    Still having trouble finding anything new. Amazon’s gotten most of the repaints in stock at one point or another, but the new Spino remains unavailable (it does have a page on there at least). My Walmart is still pretty barren but they did get the latest Sound Strikes in last week as a sign of life. Still trying to sell those 2019 Attack Packs at $7 a pop, though.
