A Video Review of the Rebor Leaping Velociraptor “Alex DeLarge”
The second of the recently introduced leaping Velociraptor figures has been reviewed by JurassicCollectables. This time, it is the stunning “Alex DeLarge”, Rebor Velociraptor in 1:18 scale, that is in the spotlight. Rebor have been busy producing lots of “raptors” and as well as highlighting the features of “Alex”, this clever video review includes comparisons with other Rebor Velociraptor models, including “Spring-heeled Jack”, the 1:18 scale “Winston” and the juvenile “Stan”

In this short video, (duration 6:12), viewers are given the chance to have a really good look at this cleverly designed, Late Cretaceous, Asian dinosaur. The narrator discusses various aspects of “Alex DeLarge”, although the video does not give the explanation for this Velociraptor’s moniker. Alex DeLarge is the name of the violent protagonist in the novel “A Clockwork Orange” by Anthony Burgess which was published in 1962. The book was made into a film, directed by Stanley Kubrick in 1971.

Velociraptors of “Jurassic World”
It is apt for this particular Rebor model to be named after a character which has appeared in the cinema. Alex DeLarge, liked to wield a razor, reminiscent of the “killing claw” associated with these dinosaurs, in the book and the film, Alex DeLarge roamed the streets in a gang, social, pack-hunting behaviour has been proposed for Velociraptors too. The beautiful paint job on this particular Rebor replica is similar to the colouration of the Velociraptor called Blue which was seen in the recent dinosaur movie “Jurassic World”. Sadly, for “off-colour Alan” his encounter with this 1:18 scale replica does not end well!

Compared with the Rebor Tyrannosaurus rex and the Rebor Velociraptor Models
It is great to see that JurassicCollectables have included other model and figure comparisons in their video review of the Rebor “Alex DeLarge” Velociraptor. Towards the end of the video, look out for a line-up of Rebor Velociraptors and a comparison between the Rebor King T. rex replica in 1:35 scale and this leaping Velociraptor figure. It is also helpful to see the model posed on both the two rods that are supplied with this replica as well as seeing how the arms fit into their sockets.
The close-up shot of the head and the views of the paintwork on the tail are very well done, nothing is out of focus and videos like this really do provide the best opportunity to view a model before deciding to purchase.
