As a fellow JP toy collector, I felt I should field this one. The Kenner
_Carnotaurus_ and _Quetzalcoatlus_ were released along with the Jurassic
Park Series 2 collection sometime around Christmas last year. I happen
to have _Quetzalcoatlus_, but passed on the only _Carnotaurus_ I saw to
buy the _Utahraptor_ (complete with capture gear, electronic screams, and
movable sickle claws). I've also seen the new _Tyrannosaurus_, but the
toy stores (at least in the Seattle area) stopped carrying JP stuff
before the _Gallimimus_ and _Baryonyx_ came out.
