Schleich Dinosaurs: Cold Blooded Thunder

It don't matter if you're Arthur Russell or Lou Barlow, EVERYONE loves dinosaurs. Carry a few home for your kid or save 'em for office decoration. They'll work either way. We don't need to explain why. You know the answer... in your heart.

Remember the $5 All You Can Ship so you'll only pay $5 for shipping as long as you order them in the same day (before midnight CT).

Picked up 10 of these on a previous woot. I know what you're thinking: "That's a lot of money for a toy dino." Well, the dinos are AWESOME. Not only are they very realistic, but they are HEAVY and sturdy (*would not recommend these for your dino lovers under 4 - if one gets chucked, it's your TV...). My little Dino-Dan-wanna-be is going to LOVE these on Christmas morning!!

I would just suggest, that if others take advantage of this, like I did last time, that Woot packagers try to consolidate the orders... because boy did I catch hell from my husband for going on a shopping spree, when it was really just one box per dino!!!

I know it seems weird. We don't have a shopping cart like other retailers to collect multiple purchases before shipping. Our sales are individual sales and shipped separately. We also ship from a variety of warehouses: directly from vendors, our warehouse, and multiple Fulfillment by Amazon warehouses.

Be sure to get them all the same scale. There are 2 different scales in this group. Schleich numbers differentiate scale. Check sizes before you order. I goofed and wound up with one small and the rest large.

These are great dinos! My kiddos loved them.

They are solid plastic and very realistic. Their
poses appear to be scientifically accurate.

I'm glad to see them back in time for Christmas shopping.

These look cool, but $27 for one plastic dinosaur seems a bit much, no matter how big and well-made it might be.

I was looking at these the other day @ Wally World for the youngin'. They are nice toys, for sure. Glad I didn't pick them up there, as they were at full retail pricing.

What, no love for Utahraptor, the largest of the Dromaeosauridae family?

Also, where are the feathers?

Not that either of these shortcomings is likely to prevent me from buying my child far too many of these...

Omens, Monsters, and Goblins! I bought a ton of those little nylon soccer shorts and each one came in a separate box. THen I bought 3 of the little soft sided camera cases, and they are also being shipped separately. I live in a small apartment and boxes need to be immediately chucked. What a pain, and way more expensive for WOOT than necessary.

Sounds like there could be a very large efficiency gain by implementing an automated order consolidation process. Put a fulfillment hold on every order for an hour or two and then consolidate orders from the same user going to the same location. Amazon already has a delayed fulfillment process for Super Saving Shipping, so it doesn't feel like order consolidation should be terribly difficult to execute.

I completely agree. Like @mesauter, I also bought a ton of the kid shorts a month or so ago… different sizes and color for my Wailer™ to grow into. I was absolutely shocked when they came in about 10 different boxes (over two days). At $2 each, you almost certainly had to lose your collective keister on that sale. :-/

These are great, but I find Papo! dinosaurs to be vastly superior in quality. Bring 'em on, woot!
