As an arm-chair paleontologist (read: "fanatic"), I have several T. rex models from various vendors which I display for fun in my office at work. In summary, the EduScience T. rex is easy to assemble, looks great, and is reasonably faithful to the current understanding of dinosaur stance and biomechanics. The individual bones of e.g. the rib cage are combined into fit-together pieces, which helps make assembly easy, but makes it harder to pose the model in anything but the manufacturer's pose (which is still pretty awesome). The phsyiologically realistic ball-and-socket neck-head joint allows you to swivel the head a little, but you're stuck with the stance of the model. To be fair, it fits together well, and comes with an attractive base which holds it solidly upright (and has a nice brass "T. rex" plaque to boot).

In terms of realism, it's very good. This would be an absolutely great gift for a budding young dinosaur enthusiast, and she would likely be proud to display it in her room or at school. The EduScience T. rex would definitely steal the show at any birthday party (I wish I had a nephew to whom to send one). However, for, ahem, older and more discerning audiences, a more careful representation such as the Elenco model might be a better (but more expensive) choice - particularly the aluminum backbone which allows one to adjust the pose of that model to be more dynamic. That said, one thing I do like about this model is the firm attachment of the skeleton to the "rock" stand - it doesn't fall over, like my Elenco rex does.

Overall, I'm very pleased that I bought this product. It's prominently displayed in a window of my office, and I would certainly buy this model again for myself or a friend. If you're looking for museum-quality reproductions, you might be a little disappointed, but it's definitely good enough to display on the shelf of your bedroom, dorm room or office. An excellent product for the price, despite a few liberties with the osteology

Poor packaging

Toy is a Christmas gift for my nephew so it has yet to be played with but the item looks as described.

      Comments about Beckett Publications EduScience Wacky Lab - Mighty T-Rex Model Kit:

      I bought this as a Christmas present and it is amazingly detailed, accurate and complete model. It is just the right size to draw attention without overwhelming the room. The assembly was easy with the use of the picture poster reference. It would be difficult if not impossible to mix up which part goes where. My son and I put this together in until 10 minutes. I was hoping for more pieces (only 21 for the model) to make the bonding time with him longer but a 6 year old can only hold their attention so long. It's an awesome display piece and the price is unbeatable for the size and detail! It is well built and will not come apart easily after assembly.

                    My 4 year old son spotted the T-Rex skeleton display inside the store.
                    There were no available models for purchase at that store or any other
                    within a 100 mile radius. I went to toysrus.com and found and ordered it
                    while standing in the store. It arrived within 4 business days and we
                    assembled it together with ease. He loves dinosaurs and this goes great
                    with his collection. Thank you for having it available to order. When he seen
                    the display and then we went to customer service to try and purchase one
                    and we're told they didn't have one it crushed his little heart. Thankfully toysrus.com
                    had it. His little eyes lit up when it arrived. Thank you

                      My six year old son loved this T-Rex model. When he saw it on the shelf he wanted it immediately because it reminded him of the dinosaur from Night of the Museum. It was difficult for him to build but dad was ready to step in and save the day. Although it was a little to tough for him to put together he loves showing it off to all of our guest who come to the house.
