“Tyrannosaurus rex attacks wedding party” sounds like a headline for a future movie on Syfy, but it actually happened. Mostly. This AWESOME photo was taken by Quinn Miller. The wedding group just had to find the right spot, and the dino was photoshopped into the background – or was it?
Folks: if you’re planning a wedding, the bar has been raised. It’s been raised to the stars.

Unless Jurassic Park becomes a reality, there’s no chance of you bagging a T-Rex for dinosaur meat ad the ultimate hunting trophy. However, thanks to polyresin and a market for strange wall decor, you can at least pretend you did.
This T-Rex trophy provides the look and a handy metal keyhole mount for display, but it only measures 14″H x 14″, so when you BS your harrowing tale, you’ll have to spin some yarn about killing a mini tyrant lizard.

This 17″ hunk of sculpted resin awesomeness was created by Joe Simon and painted by Mangrasshopper. The work is titled “Another Big Hunt” and measures 17″ tall from the top of the Predator’s blade weapon to the bottom of the base. We only wish it was available for sale—or the concept was being released as a movie.
If you don’t live in Montana where dinosaurs can be found in your backyard, then get the next best thing and order this 11ft tall T-Rex from Design Toscano who describe the thunder lizard as:
“Realistically sculpted with rows of menacing teeth, a fearsome tail and scaly skin, our prehistoric artifact is cast in quality designer resin and hand-painted with powerfully convincing color and texture. This display-quality sculpture transforms any home, garden, restaurant or hotel into something truly magnificent!”
If the transformation they speak of consists in your neighbor’s kid soiling himself in terror on your front yard, then yes, it will be a “truly magnificent” addition.

Was there ever a morbidly obese dinosaur? Some how I doubt it, but this plush T-Rex is certainly going to be soft and squeezable. I mean, how is he still hunting at this point? Does he roll over his prey like a bowling ball? With those little arms, it would be impossible to get back on your feet if you didn’t have enough momentum while rolling. I know the T-Rex had small arms, but this dude can’t even sensually rub his nipples.

Even though they probably walked through their own feces without a second thought, dinosaur feet have been tapped to help feed the world Chinese food in the form of chop sticks. No doubt these were modeled after fossils of rare dinosaurs unearthed around Coney Island.

These pillows offer customizable colors and allow you to choose between classic acronyms such as: WTF, BBIAF, OMG, or FTW. However, if you’ve ever wanted a dinosaur to mock your sexual performance or gaming skills in text, then the LOL pillow pictured above has you covered.

Mounting a t-rex head on your truck really adds a whole new dimension to the “monster truck” theme. The only way it could be better is if it had a Frankenstein, Wolfman or Dracula head hood ornament. Additional animal versions are available after the break.

One would think that a T-Rex would be something you would need protection from, but in the case of these soft, squeezable night lights, it’s the dinosaurs that keep you safe. When fully charged, these night lights will glow and change colors for up to 8 hours. They can also be removed from the base station and carried around as a toy. Additional dinosaurs are pictured after the break.

Yesterday I brought you a 9- foot tall, 17-foot long Brachiosaurus sculpture that cost a hefty $4000. Today I found a robot dinosaur that eats that tree-hugging Brachiosaurus for breakfast. This monster T-Rex skeleton stands 13 feet tall, 25 feet long and rests on a 4-foot museum stand (optional). It also features 6 lifelike movements and an Earth-shattering roar. But you really have to see it to believe it. Hit the video after the jump to see what kind of prop $22,000 buys you.
