A Video Review of the Rebor “Vanilla Ice” Tyrannosaurs – Mountain and Jungle

At the end of October, Everything Dinosaur introduced the two “Vanilla Ice” 1/35 scale tyrannosaurs from Rebor – Mountain and Jungle colour variants.  Those talented people at JurassicCollectables have created a video review, of not just one, but both replicas so that dinosaur model fans can see these two excellent models in all their glory.

Rebor “Vanilla Ice” – Mountain and Jungle

In this video review, which lasts a fraction over eleven minutes, the narrator takes us through the unboxing of a Mountain colour variant and concludes by taking a look at the Jungle colour scheme model.  At JurassicCollectables, the two colour schemes are regarded as depicting the animal during daylight, out in the open (the Mountain colour variant) and within the dappled shade of a forest canopy (the Jungle colour variant).  The video is shot in such a way so as to bring out the subtle variations between the two figures such as the different coloured tongues and the variation in the painting of the teeth.

Most Impressive 1:35 Scale Figures

As well as providing a guided tour of each of the figures, the video review also permits people to see the “Vanilla Ice” box compared to the box of the Rebor King T. rex figure.  These two models are later compared in the video too.  Rebor has taken great care to make both these figures and the other large Theropods in their range such as the King T. rex and the Acrocanthosaurus “Hercules”, in 1:35 scale, so all the figures can be displayed together.

Beautifully Detailed Figures

The video narrator is most impressed with the two Rebor replicas.  The articulated jaws and the poseable tails are admired and the camerawork permits viewers to get a really close-up view of all the superb texturing and osteoderm placement on the two figures.  The size dimensions are reported and size comparisons made with the classic Papo standing T. rex figure.  Particular attention is paid to the fantastic paintwork on the inside of the mouth.  Both figures have beautifully painted mouths and the inside of the jaws and teeth glisten in the light to give the impression that they are wet.

Care is Taken in the Video Review to Show the Head of the Model in Close Detail
