Is the white part the only part that glows? That would look a bit eerie in the dark... Shocked

Yes, only the white parts glow in the dark. If that looks eerie? Well, that is a way to see it... I saw that Soma also released a flocked line of dinosaurs back in 1985. Maybe I will acquire them one day. But for now, it is the Glow in the dark series that I want to complete the most...

It's harder to see what a white line is than the whole figure glowing. Laughing

Flocked dinosaurs? Maybe they have protofeathers. Laughing

Protofeathers on 1985 dinosaur toys... Now that is what I call "Ahead of its time"!

Right now, there are two Soma Tyrannozillas from the glow in the dark line on Ebay. Unfortunately, I don't have much money left this month; I had lots of expanses in August. I did put an auction on one of them and I sure hope to win it. If not, I sure hope the other one will still be there in September for me to buy it! I am very anxious about getting one...

Hi!
Last Sunday, I finally received my 1987 SOMA GLOW-IN-THE-DARK TYRANNOSAURUS REX!!! Now, I have FOUR (4) figures out of six (6) in this series!!! Did you see how this Tyranno looks like Godzilla? Yes, because for a very long time, in the public's mind, T.Rex and Godzilla were thought to be one and only animal. This explains why many T.Rexes representations from the 1950's to the late 1980's looked a lot like Godzilla. study  Look at the litthe Schleich "Classics" Königsaurier for example: you will see that it looks a lot like Godzilla as well: an upright position, a row of tiny plates on its back and long arms with many fingers. Shocked  It seems that it was Jurassic Park, in 1993, that finally separated completely Godzilla from T.Rex in the public's mind! Because today, you won't see many people draw T.Rex with Godzilla-like features, like many used to do during a few decades after the release of the first Godzilla movies!

Congratulations! He would indeed make an excellent Godzilla stand-in.

Now, only two figures are still missing in that line. I hope they will show up on Ebay soon.
