Man, I wish I could get my hands on these sets.

I've always said they didn't look THAT bad, and now we've been given the wickedest Minifigs.

And I'm interested in the dinos.

Thanks for the pics.

I just picked this set up on my lunch break.  I have been too curious to wait for a sale.  Anyway, I skipped the buggy as I can build that anytime.  I decided to try out my idea for the dinos and I think it worked out well.  I managed to build a decent looking saddle .  It is setup to control the raptors movements and has two short barreled 50 calibur machine guns with ammo drums.  It also has an antenna for tracking the dino down incase the driver gets killed or eaten by the dino :^D .  

I will take some pictures tonight.  I must say if you like the dinos even a little then these sets are great.  I love the color scheme and the minifigs look like advanced navy seals or something like that.  I don't know if you can attach anything on the backs of the small dinos as they are studless.  Maybe rubberbands might work.

I know, double posting.  It must be done!

Anyway, I snapped some pics when I got home from work. Check out the early draft of my idea.  It only uses parts from 7474 Urban Avenger versus Raptor.

The other views are HEREand HERE.

This opens up an extra use for the dinos, at least the raptor and t-rex.  Does anyone have a t-rex to try it on?

I think it is something that needs a little work and some better weapons but it could easily be used in a scifi setting.

hey that actually looks pretty good but one suggestion maby move the guns closer into the body of the raptor so it doesnt look wide but other then that it looks pretty good

My first design had the guns closer.  Not that it matters because it is all imaginary anyway but the raptor would have lost his arms.  I had to move them further out to prevent that.

I live in sunny Scotland!

But my brother is moving to the US for 10 months, so I may just send them to him.
