The paint and eyes on this bust are definitely first rate. My problem with it is the dip in the top of the head, but this is an easily and often made mistake, if a bit amateurish. But we must keep in mind that Chronicle was not made up of just Jurassic Park fanatics. But it still looks "off" because of the dip, which is what I dislike most about it. In the end, it's still one of the best pieces Chronicle released.

Yes, it's a shame they cheeped out on the male version, some no name factory underbid Toynami by $10 or $15 per bust and Chronicle stupidly chose them over a proven factory. The factory had no idea what they were doing(even having the gall to ask Toynami for help) it not only took twice as long, but would have actually cost Chronicle even MORE than Toynami when all was said and done. We would have had the male busts a year ago had they gone with Toynami, now we will never get them.

Did something cleaning this weekend, and just realized that one of the teeth got knocked out during then. Hopefully I'll be able to find it if it wasn't thrown out.

I was always told by the dentist to use the SOFT bristle brush!

Easy enough to fix with some putty and paint.

Yeah may have to do that if I can't find it. Had to do that before with my 1/4 t-rex.

Today I had the privilige to pick this girl up. Found one locally from a nice collector and for a very decent price. She’s in the gameroom for the moment away from her prime 1 sisters, but couldn’t fit them together as for now. She’s gigantic, I knew she was big, but this is something else.
Definitely the grail of my collection for years to come!
