The other day, my mum (yes, the one responsible for this) walked into the office and told me to close my eyes and hold out my hands.
Needless to say, I was suspicious.
But she dropped a bag of plastic dinosaurs into them! She saw them at the pharmacy and impulse bought them. Woo, pharmacy toys!
There’s not much to say individually about these dinosaurs. I don’t know why the parasaur has purple dots all over him. Maybe that’s why he was at the pharmacy! The little spiky one isn’t quite an ankylosaurus, just like how his facial expression isn’t quite anything, but whatever it is, it sure is expressing it.
The stegosaurus is probably the least interesting of all of them. It hasn’t got outlandishly strange colours or a surreal expression on its face. It’s just plodding along, doing its best to be a reasonable toy of a stegosaurus. Wait, I just made myself like the stegosaurus more.
The triceratops looks like Xzibit got his hands on it. Tyrannosaurus may be the king of dinosaurs, but triceratops is clearly the pimp. Maybe that’s why Charles R. Knight thought they had such a rivalry. In fact, you know what? I’ve convinced myself it’s interesting enough to take a second photo.
I dunno why the dilophosaurus in Jurassic Park were frill-necked lizards that spat poison, but they gave me unrealistic expectations for dilophosaurus. This one’s expression reminds me of the somewhat unfortunate face that Revoltech Woody came with though, so that kind of makes up for it.
I can’t review this apatosaurus any better than with that picture. Well, maybe with this one.
I’m not sure exactly what dinosaur this is supposed to be – it’s also almost an ankylosaurus, but it’s also missing the tail-club, but its back armour is more accurate, resulting in a frustrating mess. This effectively makes sense, because it it a trollosaurus, because obviously look at that face.
The tyrannosaurus is my favourite one though. He might actually be an allosaurus, but I’m calling him a tyrannosaurus because his legs have accidentally been bent so his feet are facing inwards, making him look like T-rex in the final panel of Dinosaur Comics. He’s also looking down with this look on his face, like “I know this is my friend’s hamburger, but she left it alone on this table and now I want to eat it.”
Also like T-rex from Dinosaur Comics?
Anyway, here’s a picture of the tyrannosaurus cosplaying as Gyaos from the Gamera movies.
