$100k Gets You A Life-Size T-Rex Skeleton Replica

Screen Shot 2014-11-03 at 10.24.03 PM

How nice it must be to have the kind of money where you can go “Hey, honey, you wanna get this T-Rex skeleton? I think it would look great in the playroom.” And then you pick up the phone, call Hammacher Schlemmer and have a team of “Product Specialists” assist you in the purchase of a 40 foot long replica of the baddest dino that roamed the earth. That’s the kind of money I’d like to have: T-Rex skeleton replica money…

Spanning 40′ from tail to snout, this is the life-size replica fossil skeleton of Stan, a Tyrannosaur first unearthed in South Dakota’s Black Hills in 1992. Found in a disarticulated state (each bone was separated from the others), Stan’s skeleton fossilized over millions of years with little-to-no distortion or crushing, making him the most complete (190 bones) male Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. This museum-quality replica is expertly crafted using GI-1000-grade silicone molds that impart stunning, authentic detail to the polyurethane resin casts that faithfully preserve the healed injuries Stan suffered during life, including a broken neck and ribs as well as puncture wounds in his skull and lower jaw.

As part of your purchase, you will have a team of people come to your residence (or wherever you want to put this thing) and assemble it, as well as position it in any “anatomically possible pose” for your convenience.

Oh and if you can’t swing $100k, there’s a life-size T-Rex skull for $9k. It’s sort of a consolation prize, although we gotta tell you, if you can swing $9k on a dino head, you’re doing pretty ok for yourself too.

This Baby Dinosaur Robot Is The Most Adorable Thing You’ll See All Day

2014-02-19-BoomerDinoMSRP99.99

Meet Boomer, the baby dinosaur. He’s the brainchild of Never Ben and his team at SpinMaster, a company that already has a toy robot under their belt called Zoomer. Boomer is a self-balancing two-wheeled (legged?) toy T-Rex that behaves unlike any toy robot we’ve come across so far. It’s so seemingly life-life in its movements, it’ll kick you right in the cute. It’s able to follow your hand around, obey your voice commands, “eat” and generally display a seemingly organic behaviour. You have to watch the video below to understand.

Sadly, we’ve got no hard details on cost or availability, but we’re thinking that there’s a chance it hits the shelves before this Holiday season, considering how ready their prototype appears to be. The rumours are, actually, that it’ll cost $100 and be available in the fall.
