    Until it isn't. See any Core Scale and inventing alt modes for the Bee Movie figures.

    Dilophosaurus may be the closest we get to a Transformers/Seinfeld crossover! :)

    It reminds me of Rescue Roy and the Playskool GoBots, but the hat/helmet heads worked better with them since they were the same color as their bodies. By painting the helmet, it stands out a bit too much. This is one case of “less is more” where leaving it unpainted would have looked slightly better.

    Ehhh, I disagree. All JP workers had to wear that specific design and color on Isla Nublar. It's in their contract and dress code.

    Here\'s my take on the jurassic park collab and the failures in naming and designing.  The explorer is grant and the jeep is Malcom right?  The t rex is some decepticon....nah...its grimlock if he were a real t rex in my collection.  He has the colorway of the red body like the dinobots originally had from diaclone.  His face looks like red grimlock.  The spitter is also a dinobot...I\'m going to call him snot.  I need more and more of these organic looking dinosaurs that transform into robots.  Also I think the biggest missed opportunity is the jp logo that all the dinosaur toys from jurassic park from the 90s all had tattooed on their hips or thighs or bodies....  I really think thats the only thing missing from these dinosaurs.

    Canceled my PO too. Set is crazy overpriced. The lego JP sets are ridiculously priced too. License must cost an arm and a leg.

    Shouldn't those shin pieces go the other way around per modes on the dino?

    That's what all the other pics do for some reason, so it's gotta be the proper way.

    the light green shin pieces tab on top of the thighs, and leave the knees unable to move, so i doubt its the proper configuration for the robot mode, i think is just the lack of paint what makes it look weird

    Looks wrong, so I'll be displaying it the opposite way. :lol 

    Edit: Nevermind, I see now, the articulation is gone when pegged on the thigh.

    Not a great design.

    Probably wouldn't look as bad if the lower legs weren't muscle-colored red like it's skin got ripped off.

    With the frill, I'd expect this to be more likely first.
