No I’m not trusting these in the display. They’re Faberge eggs. Each one was $750 a pop and again made of hollow resin so they’re extremely brittle. ( and the dude even wanted me to pay double for the repairs but not to worry, after the heads snapped off I contacted PayPal and asked for a refund on the entire order and the repair work because the dude had bait and switched me hard so I technically got these for free, even after the repairs were completed. That’s partially the reason why I was banned from his Instagram and why I’m not going out of my way to mention him by name. I don’t want to have him take any of you for a ride.) Don’t get me wrong, the figures themselves are gorgeous, they’re nice to look at, they scratch a 25 year long itch since the Buck and Doe T-Rex from TLW is my favorite rex pair in the JP franchise, but super poseability is a bit of an oxymoron in these figures so they’re unfortunately not super functional . Even as a static figure the paint can scratch against the fake vegetation or the resin could oxidize under any light source. I’m not willing to take that risk with these figures since they’re now one of a kind. If I were going to put any Rex figures in the display it would be the Hammond collection rex figures because at least I can find those in any target for $50. But sadly they’re just a tad too small for what I had in mind since they only clock in at about 9” tall or so vs the 10 1/2” I was hoping they would be. So again, the display dedicated to figures from the novels is looking like the best bet. And it’s not a total loss. I have read the books well over a dozen times in the last 20 years and they hold a special place in my heart.Reefer Shark wrote:That custom t-rex looks really nice, too bad its got the issues you mentioned. I think it would still work well in your display idea as a static figure like you mentioned.
I feel like the Amber raptors would look a bit too big next to them though, being different scales and all. Unless you’re going for a foreground angle perspective thing?
In regards to the Amber Collection raptors. They scale well enough with the 3rd party T-Rex figures but not so much with their Hammond Collection counterparts . If you go back and look at the poster from my previous post and compare images, the third party rexes scale better with these raptors for sure.
