Custom Male Papo T-Rex by Panther10 Custom Male Papo T-Rex by Panther10
This is my customized male papo tyrannosaurus rex. Like the female, it has been reposed and repainted to match the scheme from the film Jurassic Park: The Lost World. However it has been given a more greyish brown paint job (as supposed to the female's light tan paint job) in order to reflect some elements of sexual dimorphism between the two tyrannosaurs.

Here is the link to the Female T-rex for comparison.

Love it. Its about damn time. I'm going to attach the heads from the new brown rexes on to the running rex figures and build an army.

look at the other comments I've responded to. I've answered that question numerous times already.

Outstanding, is it a big job to repose these? I'd love one like this!

Yes its a very big job to repose these. And they are far to delicate to ship. My advice is to try it yourself with the recipe I've provided in the comments section.

I wish you added a few more pictures of these guys, but this looks much like the original Papo paint job. The anatomically correct stance of this guy is awesome! Your paint job makes it look more like a model than what was once an action figure.

I actually really should post new photos. Last spring I repainted both my male and female rex and gave them paint schemes that look more like the rex from the first film. The female has a beige scheme and the male is reddish brown. I tooks some creative license with the male rex though since there was only a single trex in the first jurassic park. I'll post pics of the new repainted versions of these when I have the time.

That's really cool. I hope you post them soon, I enjoy your current paint jobs.

I love making models, but I am a poor painter, and don't have the patience to customize action figures radically.

Painting these figures were actually the easiest part. takes about an hour and a half for me to paint each one. I'm actully talking to a guy from mexico right now that I've asked to make some super articulated JP t-rex figures that are about 8" tall and like 15" long or so and he does great work. His paint skills are far superior to mine and he builds these figures from sratch. once I have the figures they will definitely become my new quinnessential JP rex figures. the rexes I customized are great but they are too delicate to handle. so I cant wait for him to start working on these rex figures they are going to look super cool.
