This is a thread about a lot of Dinos.

At IPP a friend brought a not-fully-functional Dino cube for me to look at.

I first went about exploring what the problem might be (video courtesy of Klara from this post).

Next it went home with me for a proper repair.

For my efforts (hey, it was fun for me) and for a birthday gift (thanks!) they were kind enough to send me a very special thank you, a Smaz hand built Dino replica.

How could I not take pictures?

All six Dinos. RRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAARRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

My set of Dinos, Smaz's replica, and a red Dino Star just for good measure.

Enjoy my prehistoric shelf,

Dave

That is quite a collection of Dinos! Very nice, they all look so well taken care of too.

I want to say something out of respect and interest, but could not find something more constructive than:

Impressive.

One thing that's always piqued my curiosity about Dinos is that they appear to have grooves between the stickers that look like a 2x2x2. Why is that, David?

If you are referring to the mold lines underneath the stickers, Dave already commented on them in this post (just below the first picture):

As you may notice, Dino cube pieces are molded hollow (a loop, it seems). This explains the odd mold line that gives the distinctive sticker line/bubble.

Nice collection of Dinos, Dave, and they all look so happy in each other's company. :)
