A Video Review of the Rebor “Winston” Velociraptor Replica
JurassicCollectables have produced a video review of the Rebor 1:18 scale, coloured Velociraptor called “Winston” and what a wonderful opportunity to view this new Rebor model close up it is. The Velociraptor figure has been introduced to pay tribute to Stan Winston, the special effects wizard behind the dinosaurs in the first three “Jurassic Park” films. It is these films that really cemented the “raptor” amongst dinosaur fans as one of the most dangerous dinosaurs of all. The Velociraptors in the movies may have been depicted much larger than they would have been back in the Late Cretaceous, but since “Jurassic Park” came out (1993), palaeontologists have identified a number of large dromaeosaurids, links to articles about some of these discoveries are provided at the end of the article, but without further ado, let’s look at the video.

Velociraptor Replica Reviewed
In the brief video, (it lasts a little over six and a half minutes), the narrator guides the viewer through the details that can be seen on this carefully sculpted model. The replica stays true to the non-feathered principles of the first “Jurassic Park” offerings and the viewer is guided around the dinosaur with a special focus on the beautifully crafted, articulated lower jaw. A comparison is made between this figure and the Scout series Velociraptor “Stan” introduced by Rebor earlier this year. The “Stan” and “Winston” figures are united in a special, limited edition (1,000 made), bronze effect replica set, JurassicCollectables will be reviewing this figure once Everything Dinosaur has sent out a set to them.
