    Yeah, not going to lie, I loved this show as a kid. I had several of the figures, the T-Rex is my holy grail. I was inspired by the new Jurassic line. Here is what I have so far.

    Dino-Riders I assume? 3D-printed armor on JP toys would look awesome! Good luck!

    I had a bunch of Dino-Riders as a kid. Still have most of them, and this is a really cool idea. Can’t wait to see where it goes!

    Glad to see there is some dino riders love out there. I started with the Triceratops because he is the biggest one I had and was the most stable figure to play with. I'm hoping we get a restock of the JP dinos soon so I can pick up one or two more to work on.

    I LOVED Dinoriders!!!! I hope this is something you pull off. I've been waiting for their triumphant return to toy shelves using updated Dinosaurs. I still have some of the armor in my parents attic if you need parts. Make Dino Riders Awesome again!

    You definitely have my attention! I was a HUGE Dino Riders fan. Used to stare at the Trex in a toy catalogue for hours until my birthday came and I finally got it! I wAs soooo in love!!!

    I would go completely crazy if Mega Construx started to make them!

    Maybe make the Triceratops the battle ship, with smaller quadripeds the screening beasts? I don't know if there is a Jurrasic World Styracosaurus, but it is a smaller Ceratopsian. Make them the lighter, more maneuverable defensive screen for the heavy hitters. Are you strictly following the old toy lines of who used what dinos?

    I would love to go with exactly what there was in the line, but I don't know if I have the skills or resources for that. :) . I will just be making what I can with what I can find. I picked up what will be my first brain boxed Dino today. Metriocanthrasouraus.

    If I remember rightly, they used actual Dinoriders dinosaur toys for part of one of the Jurassic Park line of toys many years ago (sans the armour).
