Leonardo’s dinosaur pal is looking a little less Triceratops-like… In fact, he isn’t paired up with a large Triceratops at all. Playmates have gone for a repaint of Donatello’s T-Rex companion in a similar color scheme.
This T-Rex is very cool blue all over. Even the inside of his mouth is blue! Or could that be Playmates cutting corners on paint apps again? Oh, Playmates!
Another thing to note is the Leonardo rider figure still has a weapon in hand unlike the other rider Dino-Turtle variants. Having a sword still in hand works well for that “charge into battle” posture.
Apologies for not having a Donatello T-Rex to compare with. Some of us (unlike the sidekick of a certain Intergalactic Wrestling Promoter) are just not made of money. Of course, we’re more than happy for Playmates to send the odd parcel our way *hint*. The best was done with what little there was available. Big thanks to our source btw. You know who you are! 😉
“I-Ho T-Rex away!”
