A Review of the Rebor “Rose” Velociraptor Figure by JurassicCollectables
Those clever and talented people at JurassicCollectables have posted up another Rebor replica review. The latest video features the Rebor Velociraptor named “Rose”, a representation of a female “raptor”, one of a pair of figures (one male, one female) introduced by Rebor last month. These videos are a splendid way for dinosaur fans and model collectors to get a good look at any potential acquisition. As well as showing the model, the narrator highlights key features and also compares the figure to other similar replicas, so collectors can gain an appreciation of its size and scale.

Rebor “Winston”, Rebor “Pete” and Rebor “Rose”
The narrator praises the figures calling them “lovely sculpts with lovely paint jobs”. The Rebor female raptor “Rose” is compared with the recently reviewed Velociraptor “Pete” and a third Rebor Velociraptor replica “Winston”. In the video, the skull shape and eyes of the Rebor “Winston” and the new “Rose” are carefully considered and the viewer is treated to a detailed inspection of the differences between the skulls and the eyes of these two models.
The female Velociraptor is depicted in a squatting position, as if the animal is resting and the points of articulation are discussed. This Rebor replica has an articulated lower jaw as well as poseable forearms. The exquisite colouration and details of the scales on the body are reviewed and commented upon.

A Pack of “Raptors”
In this carefully made video, JurassicCollectables have included a review of the packaging. The back of the Rebor “Rose” box shows the range of Rebor Velociraptor figures in 1:18 scale that have been made so far. With Rebor, dinosaur fans and model collectors have a wonderful opportunity to build their own pack of dromaeosaurids, very reminiscent of the Velociraptors seen in the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World film franchises.
It is good to see the various Rebor models and figures shown together. Viewers can get an appreciation of potential dinosaur dioramas when the likes of Rebor “Winston” and the dynamic leaping Rebor “Spring heeled Jack” are included in the same video. Rebor is certainly building a strong reputation for its 1:18 scale figures.

In terms of new scale models, collectors are going to have to wait until April before there are more Rebor releases. However, collectors and model fans have plenty to enjoy in the current range and these excellent video reviews by JurassicCollectables really show these figures in superb detail. Look out for the cameo appearance of “off-colour Alan” towards the end of this fifteen-minute review. He appears just after the “tale of the tape” when Rose is measured. The narrator makes a very good point, the Rebor 1:18 scale raptor range works very well in terms of scale with the original Jurassic Park models and figures.

The narrator concludes the video by stating that for fans of the Velociraptors seen in films such as Jurassic Park III, the models from Rebor are a must-have for the collection. We shall shortly post up details of the JurassicCollectables review of the partner model to accompany “Rose”, the male Velociraptor appropriately termed “Gunn”.
