Was searching through Cultman TV and noticed Pegasus Hobbies is going to release a 1/32 Triceratops and T-Rex. I have never OOB'd any of their kits, but they have quite a selection. Check 'em out at www.pegasushobbies.net .
One thing you should know, if you aren't familiar with Pegasus kits. Pretty sure these are going to be their usual solid vinyl. It's really cool. Like the best of both worlds. Nice and solid like a resin kit. But much more inexpensive like a vinyl kit. And the way the parts are keyed, you almost don't need glue. And they are practically seamless.
Well Cultman sent a memo on my pre-order, so I thought I'd let ya'll know that these are now in stock! Will be a delay in shipping (probably from all our vendors) as they prepare for Wonderfest 2014. Have a good time, if you are going....I've got twin 16 year-old boys that are really tapping my account, so I'll have to wait for updates from you attendees. I should put 'em to work, but they got good grades and are 3-sporters in high school athletics, so I can't complain. 5-6 years from now, maybe they'll gift me a trip..........

Nicely molded, fit together superbly, you can even get them off e-bay in the UK at a reasonable price. But they are such good sculpts they are as dull as something you'd see in a museum. Give me a PS kit anyday. I suspect I will but both in the near future, but its like the Tamiya diorama kits, they just aren't as exciting as a B Movie special.

Now that I've received them, I'm kinda torn between opening or returning. I have an old birds-eye maple cutting block in storage that might be big enough to "base" the two kits. If so, I'm toying with the idea, since they are solid vinyl and have a good review for seamless, of just doing them in an antique bronze and see how they might look that way.......thoughts?!?!
Keep in mind, I am working with both the Tamiya Dioramas (with a couple of additional 1/35th's to try and 'kit-bash') and the PS series. That should be plenty of realistic painting (since I'm more of hand-paint, haven't worked an airbrush yet) and this could be a nice alternative.

I love it and I'm wondering how far they intend to go with this series......... seeing the young elasmosaur/ plesiosaur, I'm wondering if they will add an adult like they they did the T-Rex/ Triceratops!?!

Got the Spinosaurus for Christmas, it is great! E-mailed Pegasus to see what their intentions are for the series. They are working on a lipleurodon (sp) to possibly face-off with the spino (like the T-Rex/ Triceratops) and hope to have it out end of 2015! Message below:
Thank you for your purchase of our kits, the next dino in line is the Liopleurodon from Shane Foulkes.
