4175 Amphibian Vehicle with Deinonychus (II)
« on: July 12, 2011, 12:14:03 »
Customiser has already done a great review of this set here: http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=1242.0

I just wanted to point out how misleading the box is as far as the deinonychus is concerned...





the printing on him is not as good as the box suggests and his size is half of what is shown in the front of the box...

His size though, when you get your hands on him, is very adequate and much better than the one on the box...

I wont trouble you with more details as Customiser has already done a really good work, I'll just say that I love this set....



 and the vehicle specifically  ;D

Dinos are not my thing but it is a nice little set. I think you are right, the printing is A LOT better in the box.
That happens sometime with colors.... boxes' colors look better than the real toy. It must be a marketing thing but it feels like cheat.  :(

I actually like the printing on the real thing better, I think! Thanks for pointing it out, though. I don't have this set.... yet. ;D
