With my work we went to the "T-Rex in Town" expedition in Naturalis, the Netherlands.
Of course a museum has a store... The store had Schleich and CollectA models.
Even though I wasn't really active collecting at that moment (February it was I believe), it still got my interest and I wanted to bring one home.
I saw a few of the big ones on top of the closets thinking "That's going to be extremely expensive". I couldn't even grab them myself because they were so high up. The girl who was with me could get one and we checked the price. I can't say he was cheap (it's a huge model) but it wasn't thát expensive as I was thinking.
So, after the exhibit, I still didn't know for sure... Checked the prices online and he was €30,- !! more expensive on Ebay (without shipping).
After I while I figured... Meh why not, just take him home.
I had to pick one of them, they were all so different in coloring!
For your reference, here he / she is with a Schleich T-Rex
