We all know you have to eat your veggies if you want to grow up big and strong, it’s just too bad there’s nothing in that old saying about proper arm length or a natural immunity to large meteors. But please don’t mention that to this dino by Greeble_Scum, he seems to really be enjoying his greens. Besides, just because he doesn’t eat meat doesn’t mean he won’t bite it.
Built for a Rebrick contest, Anthony Wilson has found a way to make Nexo Knights cool (which I didn't think was entirely possible until now). Just look at this sculpture...it's absolute menacing, fun, and creative all at the same time. (Didn't think that was possible either.) I really like the design of this robotic dinosaur, with a very sleek and efficient concept throughout its design. Even the display base is worth mentioning, which is truly the finishing touch that this model needed. Excellent work! I hope to see more Nexo Knight builds like this in the future.
As summer approaches we can all get set for another dino-blockbuster, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Builder ZiO Chao is getting in the mood with this fabulous collection of dinos. On this sign there's no fewer than ten including the classic tyrannosaurus, velociraptor and triceratops. How many of the others can you name? Click through for the full list and closeups of each dino.
I was fortunate enough to see these gorgeous Dinotopia dinos by Shawn Snyder in person at BrickCon last year. I've never read any of the books but I have always enjoyed the artwork from the series, and these sculptures capture their essence perfectly. I might add that using a brachiosaur for fire fighting is inspired lunacy, what a wonder world that would be.
Let's face it, dinosaurs are cool and fascinating, but also big and terrifying. I don't think we'd be at the top of the food chain had they not been wiped out. But we can sorta bring them back, in mechanical form, and they'd be just as big and scary. Like this brilliant robotic beast by nobu_tary, all pistons and servos, all stompy and bitey. Just hopefully completely under control, or it's back to hiding in holes for us.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dr. Henry Bonedigger of the New Mexico Paleontology Society has proposed a controversial extinction theory of the late jurassic, early cretaceous period. While the leading theory is catastrophic climate change brought on by a cosmic event, a meteor or comet impact most likely, lead to the mass extinction of all the larger dinosaurs. Dr. Bonedigger theorizes the even was in fact brought on by this individual, Ty Rano, and his exceptionally large walking gun. Dr. Skip Tick of the Montana group rebukes "this is insane, to propose that a single individual could do so much damage. There were no gas stations to power that thing". Many scientists have come forward to challenge Dr. Bonedigger's theory but he remains adamant. "While I agree it was a monumental effort, I'm certain Ty and his machine did this." Dr. Bonedigger's theory will be published in the next issue of Paleoworld. He is currently on a north American speaking tour.
