I don’t know what was all the controversy about this set. I think it looks amazing. The T-rex is spot on, and so is the gate. The price per part ratio is amazing too.

The complaints were about the similarity to the rejected Ideas project and that there is no jeep. But Mark Stafford explained that getting the license for the jeep was too complicated. And the scale didn’t work either.

I would have liked the inclusion of a jeep, but oh well. The dino is brilliant and the gate is cool. But I wish they printed the name tiles.

*not available for VIP? Did you mean now? 😉
Saw this contest a few days ago and I definitely hope to enter. Creature building is not my forte but a dinosaur has been on my (mental) want-to-build list for quite a while. The criteria seems very vague though… I can’t say I’m sure what makes a dino genetically modified. I guess something like the Indomitus Rex from the last movie but it’s still tricky to know how to make that visually obvious.
As far as the set goes, I think it’s awesome and a beautiful parts pack (frankly better that way than if it had had a jeep haha). It’s a little out of my price range, but this may be a way to get my hands on it! 😛

Ha-ha! Thanks for catching that typo. Had that fixed. As far as the contest, when I’m not sure, I look at other entries to see how other people interpreted the rules. At least you know what direction everyone is going, and you can decide to go with them, or go in a completely opposite direction. 😀

Yeah, last I checked there weren’t a whole lot of entries but I’m sure they’ll start coming in and I’ll see what the general take on it is. It’s nice that now they’re organized (or can be organized) by popularity instead of date so you don’t necessarily have to plow through tons of mediocre entries to get to the good ones.

I like the sorting feature too. The best ones are always at the top. 😀

This is a great looking set. The T. rex looks imposing, and I love the articulation. I’m sorry they couldn’t use the Jurassic Park logo on the display, but I understand this was a request by the IP holder. Other than that, it looks amazing.

I’m hearing/reading a lot of good things about this set. It’s very tempting.
