    got mine in today, has a slight defect on JP93, the left foot where the roof part won't collapse all the way. Doesn't really affect much though. Elbows and hips are a bit loose, but I can pick him up and they stay in place

    Incorrect, if you want to sell it you better sell it now. They are making a ton of these. Next batch is due in December.

    Not a new "batch" so much as a later release... keep the non-googly eyes set misb, and you got a winner.

    Production ended a while ago.

    Is this set just officially released in the US now? I've been trying to find some Jurassic Park/dinosaur toy channels for their take on this set and only found a few reviews, and they were done very recently.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    Being a part of this community makes it feel like the set's been out for months when in fact, it's not.

    As a huge Jurassic Park fan this set is right up my alley, to quote John Hammond. At the weekend I put a large gallery of images on my website and the set was just an absolute joy to photograph. I’m going to pick up another as the box is incredible. The Jp93 mould is really well done too, although those clear panels on the feet are probably not going to end up being the most durable.

    I’ve never enjoyed photography so much. :)

    Jesus, they should have hired you to do the official product photography; it actually looks like it's worth $100 here!

    Incapable Hulk, your photos are STUPENDOUS! Truly god-tier shots.
    I don't know why you or anyone think that; I think it's a cheap, overly simple, gappy, floppy, awkward-kneed ripoff. Tyrannica (my name for Tyrannocon Rex) is snazzy though. Can't wait to see what ToyHax does for her...!

    Goddamn what did Hasbro do to you? :lol 

    It's certainly a disappointing figure for me due to the older standard this figure is made by but it's hardly a horrific figure. I still love both. Rexy is hands down my favorite version of that mold but JP93 is good too.

    Simple answer? We don't all have the same tastes. Personally I also love the JP93 mold. It could have used a bit more polish, but overall it's about average as far as car bots go.

    The vast majority of the budget must have gone to all the paint hits (seriously, the thing is covered from every angle with multiple layers of deco) because, yeah, the mold itself is basically Cyberverse-tier. Hell, there's Cyberverse deluxes with more parts than he has.

    The JP93 mold is pretty bad with the backwards design and the inexcusable huge gaps in the torso. The loose ball joints on top of that just makes it worse. Even if your copy isn't loose out the box, just wait until it wears in a little bit.

    Of course, the rolling eyes on Tyrannocon is such a QC mess. It seems like it shouldn't be because it's such a small part of the figure. However, the eyes easily draw so much attention. Tyrannocon's dino facial expression goes from fierce dino to laughing stock just from mispainted pupils alone. The misaligned bot head panel is a new QC issue unique to this version of the mold.

    Recently went to a Target and saw the Mattel legacy version escape packs. All the dino eyes were painted correctly in comparison.

    The price is ridiculous for what we got. Would've been much happier with the purchase for a cheaper price and tighter JP93 ball joints at least.

    Yes, various issues, even the eyes, are "fixable" but shouldn't need to be fixed in the 1st place.

    End rant

    Anyone who doesn't want Tyrannocon want to make a deal?
