What an incredible build this was. In total this took me about 6 hours to build. It's pretty straightforward with no light up parts or batteries to worry about. The only decal is on the name plate. Check out the video below for a time-lapse of the build:
The build starts with the base, followed by the limbs, then the main body, head and then tail. The only difficulty I had at all in this build is placing the completed dino onto the base. It's very heavy, and prone to lean if you are not supporting it during the process. The dino anchors to the base at both feet, and again at the name plate sign. Once you get the sign locked in, it's pretty sturdy.
The jaw moves, and the tongue is articulated!
Each toe and claw has individual movement
Hydraulics on the legs work
The realistic side of the dino has a fantastic grey and black color scheme. Look how the eye pops on this side!
You can see here how the front claw rests on the sign to support the dino.
The baseplate includes dino bones!
Here he is in comparison to some other JMBricklayer builds:
As you can see he dwarfs the Astronaut and the Chameleon! This one is going to look great on your shelf.
