Based on the size of the standard "Amber" stand next to the T-Rex, I don't think it's too much smaller than a raptor. Maybe 3/4 size.

Possible, but I don't think that one image is a guarantee. It kind of looks like a Photoshop composite. Even the Procompsognathus look like they are close to the same size as the baby rex, which is to scale in the movie. And I seriously doubt that Mattel will make a compy that will look almost as large as a goose next to the raptors.

So, I’ve been sleeping on this line. Jurassic Park is one of my all-time favorite movies, but I couldn’t justify getting into another line. Then, my wife gifted me a Malcolm for my birthday and the gates opened up.

I picked up Arnold the other day and it just cracks me up that 1) They made this character and 2) They left no stone unturned with him. I love his bald spot. I love that his right arm is removable with some blood on the underside of his arm. It’s surprisingly grim!

I have a super colossal t-rex in the mail from Amazon that should get here tomorrow. It was a warehouse deal so I grabbed her for $26. I’m not exactly thrilled about getting into a new line, but this one is a straight joy so far.

I definitely got sucked back into my love of JP fairly recently too. I was only collecting the Amber Collection dinos before, but something in me awoke when I got the Spinosaurus a few weeks back. Circled back and picked up the AC humans (I had Malcolm before), and they're nice. I agree that there's something really fun about Arnold- I can't think of many, if any, action figures with bald spots, and his bloody arm will make a great display piece when Ellie comes out. Nedry and Owen are nice as well- having the little Barbasol can is really fun. I wasn't really looking forward to the humans, but now that I know they're going all in, I'm excited to fill out the iconic main 4- Grant, Ellie, Malcolm, and Hammond. I hope we get Lex and Tim eventually, especially since Lex has never had a figure before. I wouldn't be mad if it spills over into Lost World, either- give us that Malcolm, Sarah, Nick, Roland, maybe a dino fodder Dieter to go with the Compies.

For sake of shelf space, I've mostly been sticking to dinos that have appeared in the movies/show, but I did break that rule with the Plesiosaur recently. It was just too cute, and who wouldn't want a little mini Nessie? Indominous is next on my list to snag, but I'm torn between the Super Colossal and the Destroy n' Devour. I love the look and detail of the Super Colossal, but I have no idea where I'd put it.

When the preorders for the last round of figures went live, we didn’t see promotional shots for any of them until the week before they were set to release. So that could still be a good 5-6 weeks away if Mattel is adhering to the same schedule as before.

I just pre ordered it. Just one for now, but before all is said and done, I might end up with two of this set.

Yeah, we gotta get Lex. We have been denied her to many times. I mean, it was only once by Kenner but...... that was still to many.

Does anyone know who still carries the Amber Collection Dilophosaurus? I got into this line kind of late and am playing catch up.

Ebay, or Amazon sellers who have jacked the price up by 2 to 4 times. That's it.

I only want Ellie and a pair of raptors to represent my love of the film and novel (one of those quick reads I do every year).

My question is which raptors represent that run to the generator best?
