I picked up the T-Rex Escape set today, so I canceled my preorder. The Explorer is pretty great with its garish colors. The four doors open and close. The sunroof has a springy pivot to it so the T-Rex can smash it down. Tim comes with the expensive night vision goggles, but has no elbow articulation. I never got into the 1:18 scale dinos, so this is the first T-Rex i've gotten. I've avoided them because of the pitiful articulation, and this T-Rex is as pitiful as I expected. The action feature is annoying because it won't allow for the mouth to just be posed open. This does not feel like a value at $50, it feels closer to being worth $30. And we still don't have Lex.

Got 'em!

The humans, anyway. Haven't really started getting any dinos yet. Want a T-Rex, Spinosaurus, the thing that killed Newman, and I guess the Indomitus Rex if they make those.

Got them too, thanks a lot for letting us know! Once these things are gone, they're gone for good...

Too bad Muldoon does not come with the shotgun, it's so iconic...

Also, are we sure the glasses are removable from Alan? I know, there are pic with those off from the head without hat but don't know...the fact that he's wearing them in package and them looking glued in the posed photos makes me wonder... I strongly Hope they are not...that head looks better IMO

She's not. :(

Probably was just someone canceled from their PoL, so one was available. There's 1 Hammond right now too.

Ouch... I though that was some kind of restocking Image

My T-Rex Escape set I had pre ordered shipped from Target today. I can't wait to get this set. Hopefully a figure of Lex isn't far behind. Having got a pre order in for Arnold, and now having Tim coming in this set, if I could get Lex I would feel complete for the 3.75" line. Not that I wouldn't buy other offerings. But until I have Lex, it will feel incomplete.

Yesterday was a JP kind of day! Got Hammond and Ellie from Amazon, and found Scorpios Rex and Indoraptor at Target. Can't believe I never picked up Indoraptor before- the articulation is great; basically a predecessor to the Amber Collection. Wish it weren't so glossy- I don't remember it being that shiny in the movie, except maybe in the rain. Either way, I'm glad to finally have it. Hope the rest of the new line shows up soon!

So, is there any word if they will move to lost world after completing the cast from the original? Besides the kids, there's nobody left (Gennaro maybe with toilet diorama)

Would you like to see that? I prefer the original, but have to admit the Ingen mercs, Roland and some other people around could be great in figure form.

Genarro, Wu, and the kids are must haves, and I won't feel done without them. After that, hell yes, gimme Lost World figures next. I'd take Grant and Billy, at a minimum, from JP3, too.

I'd like to see Lex & Tim, and also a Wu at some point. Wu might figure in more prominently in the upcoming flick though, so that might be a better place for him.

I'd definitely love Lost World figs - an updated Malcolm, as well as Sarah, Tembo & Nick. I'm not really someone who needs anything from III, so I'd prefer to have a Claire from the current trilogy.
