Tyrant Lizard

Peanut butter and chocolate. Eggs and toast. Boys and girls. Somethings are just better as a pair. Such is the case with dinosaurs. If you have a triceratops you have to have a tyrannosaurus to make a complimentary pair. Am I right?

Of course I am. So I complimented my Sideshow Dinosauria Triceratops with their T-rex: The Tyrant King statue. Which is the same 1/15th scale and on a similar base. I don't have anyplace where I can display them together, they're too big. But here it is in all it's coolness.
such tiny arms
Everything I said about the triceratops statue applies here. It's big. It's very detailed. It's accurate. I like it very much. It's a bit over 13-inches high and a whopping 30-inches long. At this size, I would be afraid if it were alive, full size and big as life I think shitting yourself would be the most likely scenario.

Tyrannosaurus facts might look something like these; 40-feet long, 12-feet high at the hips, 10-12 tons. That's a big lizard.
we'll talk about that thing another time
In this next shot you can see that I painted the flag case holding my father's flag and mounted it to the bookcase. I think I may add another couple boards to the frame for balance. You can see my cat, Cassie, under the shelf. You will note that she is only slightly larger than the statue. Also, I picked up the new boxed set of Stephen King's Dark Tower series, because it's awesome and I like my books to match.
as big as the cat
