PAPO ALLOSAURUS PICTURES!

Well, after last week's sad news, we have something much less depressing to pass along today: the first loose shots of the new Papo Allosaurus!

Thanks to forum member Freewee who was lucky enough to get one through the german seller Kinderlanddreieich and was kind enough to take pictures for us to enjoy, we can present you yet another JPToys exclusive. Feel free to take a look at the Papo Allosaurus page to take a closer look at this neat piece. Even though it's a bit less stellar than the prototype showed months ago, this collectible is as solid as we can expect for a Papo product, and will surely look great next to its fellow "Paposaurus"!

FAREWELL, MR. WINSTON.

It's indeed a very sad news we have to pass today: Stan Winston, one of the most well-known visual effects supervisor and make-up artist, and famous for his work in the Terminator series, Aliens, the Predator series, Edward Scissorhands, and of course, the Jurassic Park series, passed away on June 15, 2008, at his home in Malibu, California after suffering for seven years with multiple myeloma.

Stan Winston owned more than one effects studio, including Stan Winston Digital. The established areas of expertise for Winston were in makeup, puppets and practical effects, but he had recently expanded his studio to encompass digital effects as well. He won a total of four Academy Awards for his work, one of them in 1993, for that movie we all grew up with...

All our thoughts and prayers go to his family. Farewell, and thank you, Mr. Winston, for all the sparkles you put in our eyes for all these years. Thank you.

REVIEWS, CATALOGS, AND SPECULATION...

Today's going to be regular forum member Roselaar's day. We have several interested bits of info to share, and they all come from him. So, here we go!

First, we have 31 new, great-quality reviews for you to enjoy, all by Roselaar. You can discover them in the Lost World and Chaos Effect dinosaurs sections!

Roselaar also uncovered some old catalogs from local Dutch toy stores featuring JP toys, and he was kind enough to scan them and send them our way. You can see what this kind of catalogs look here in Europe by going to our new Holland catalogs section.

And finally, some speculation about the unreleased Ornithosuchus with Dino Trapper... Roselaar recently reminded us about a strange eBay auction, which makes for a neat new point of interest about this elusive toy...

That's it for today, boys and girls! Have fun with this bunch of news, and stay tuned! We still have one or two small things in store... ;)

UNRELEASED SCUTOSAURUS CLOSE-UPS!

Well, well, well, pictures of unreleased toys are raining, these days! Today, we are proud to present you several pictures of the unreleased Scutosaurus from the Jurassic Park Series 2 line, which were taken by forum member AlphaBrachio. He was kind enough to take big, pristine clear pics of his gem and send them our way for all the community to enjoy. A big thanks goes to him!

In other news, we are proud to welcome a new affiliate: Jack De La Mare's Jurassic Park 4 website! As usual, you can access it by clicking on the little icon on the right. So, make sure to make a little stop on this neat-looking new site! :)

MR HAMMOND, I THINK WE'RE BACK IN BUSINESS!

As many of you have noticed, the forums were down for the whole week-end. This was caused by a problem on Proboards' servers, apparently due to a fire. But thankfully, we're back in business now. :)

As far as news go, we don't have much to announce right now. We're currently being busy working behind the curtains to bring you a few surprises, but meanwhile, feel free to cast your vote on our new poll: "So, did you buy your Sideshow T-Rex playset?". And stay tuned for our upcoming updates!
