nooooo admirals akbar!
It must have been a trap.
all proceeds go directly to a good cause
There is NOTHING I want more right now than this.
Also have you heard the theory about t-rex arms being for dino love? I cannot find a real source but I was watching a program on National Geographic and one old guy speculated that since the tiny t-rex they found also had tiny arms it may not have been an evolutionary need to get rid of the heavy arms because our heads are so strong thing. This guy said the tiny arms were for ticking dino-lovers!
I thought T-Rex might like to know his small arms are for ticking the ladies.
I believe I also read that since their small arms can't break their fall if they fall down, T-rexes could heal really quickly!
I think it is fantastic and I have successfully lobbied to get it to come live at my house as part of our holiday festivities. HOORAY!
Aww he's so fat!! Haha I love him!
Too bad nobody I know is actually aware that I read this comic. Damn!

T-Rex had a good Thanksgiving
"Aww he's/she's/you're so fat" doesn't work quite as well when referring to people older than...say, 12*, though, no? At least not to their face. lol
*Remains arguable, constantly being told "aww, you're so fat/chubby/cherubic! *pinch cheek*" when I was kid led me to assume that I was, indeed, fat and hopeless (I just had big cheeks, dammit!) so I let go and got obese in my teens, which is not the best time to do that.
The best time to lose weight and gain self-esteem though, is when you're a nubile college folk. So there's a happy ending to this unsolicited narrative.
Oh my goodness this is just the best
It's that perpetually-open mouth that gets me. I choose to believe he's announcing "My apocalyptic tenor has not been dispelled!"
Obese T-rex is going to be my new best friend!
Oh my god please Santa please I'll be good I promise.
Get serious Ryan, 20"? I want like 14' of T-Rex to squish. I don't even care if it fits in my house.

Let's talk failure modes...
I'm strongly considering this as a Christmas present for my one year old niece. I got her the T-Rex onesie for her birthday last month, and although my sister has never sent me a picture of the kid actually wearing it, I WANT TO BELIEVE. So anyhoo, she has four, maybe five teeth so far and I'm a little concerned she might eat this thing's eyes and then have to have them surgically removed from her intestines or something. What is the mean time between eyeball failure on these units? Does the warranty cover that?

Re: Let's talk failure modes...
They're really only recommended for ages 3 and up. The eyes are attached securely but I don't know the exact level of teething that would pull them off!
The Day T-Rex Ate 300 Pies
One day T-Rex was hanging out like a bad scout when he saw a pie store. The pie store was having a sale! "Buy One Pie, Get 299 Pies For Free". Oh my goodness! T-Rex had just enough money for one pie. A pie cost three dollars. So he bought one pie and got 299 free pies. What could he do will all of these dang pies?! He would eat them all. And so he did. The End.
GET THIS MAN A PULLIZER, STAT!
I want this so bad, but I am poor and shipping to Australia is expensive :'(
I appear to be the only one, but the fact that he's a big round ball makes this a FAIL to me. He also seems to have somehow lost the exuberance that he shows in the strip and strikes me as looking a lot more angry and less playful.
I'd love to have a cuddly little T-Rex to hug, but not this fatty.
You could always split Fatty open and take some of the stuffing out. :]
Oh but he looks fantastic! I must find a way to move my money and get him. Curse my untimely house-purchasing!
omg i want to fill a room with stuffed t-rexes and bathe in it daily.
QUESTION: the mans under his feet and the CD aren't actually included, right?
I love that he is perpetually in second-panel position, which is my favorite part of every comic, and life.

The Awesomeness right here!
Aw its so cute! I want one! Did you make it yourself?
Wow, this is amazing!
I don't typically wish I was born later, but I envy the mirth one who's currently 8 will obviously have with this.
He's so cute! And I just wanted to let you know that I just got a pet lizard, and I've realized that I talk to him using the voice of T-Rex. The lizard is more of a Utahraptor type, but whenever I see him I just get so excited that I end up T-Rex-ing at him.
