Rebor Killer Queen T. rex – Attaching the Tail
Fans of the Rebor range of prehistoric animal replicas will know that some of the recent model introductions have had flexible tails. The three Ankylosaurus models “War Pig” for example, along with the two colour variants of the Tyrannosaur figure “Vanilla Ice”, these figures have all been supplied with detachable, flexible tails. Team members at Everything Dinosaur thought it might be helpful to would-be Rebor collectors if we were to shoot a short video to show how these tails attach to the models. In addition, for those people who had not purchased one of these Rebor dinosaur models before, we could show how the figures are supplied.

The Tail is Supplied as a Separate Piece
In this short, thirty second video, we show how the tail is supplied as a separate piece (Rebor Killer Queen Tyrannosaurus rex models) and how it can be inserted into the back of the figure to make the model complete. Both the Rebor Killer Queen “jungle” and “plain” variants have this feature and the tails are flexible, allowing collectors to put their T. rex into a variety of poses. The nature of the joint into the posterior of the animal reduces the amount of vertical movement, but in the Dinosauria, generally, the tail could not move a great deal in the vertical plane. However, the flexible rod in the tail piece permits quite a degree of lateral movement.
In an earlier blog post, we included a short video that demonstrated the flexibility of the tail in a Rebor Tyrannosaur model. To view this post: Rebor Killer Queen T. rex Models Have Poseable Tails.
A Trio of Dinosaur Tails

The picture (above), shows three tail pieces from three different Rebor tyrannosaurid models. The tail piece (top) is from the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex model (plain colour variant). The tail in the middle is from the Rebor Vanilla Ice Tyrannosaur figure (jungle colour variant) and the tail (bottom) is from the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex (jungle colour variant).
All the tails in the photograph come from 1:35 scale Rebor replicas.
The tail inserts into the posterior with a positive “click” and the separate tail piece helps Rebor to cut down on product packaging (less cardboard required as the model fits into a smaller box).
