Good homes wanted for T.Rexes !

Mon, 21 May 2012

Something new for the website. As you can imagine I have quite a few paper models balanced precariously on every surface here at robives.com HQ. Last week a book fell on my Watch Mouse model and squashed it dead. True Love, who's tidiness borders on OCD levels is getting impatient. Time for action. 

Here's the plan. I'll be adding an 'Originals' tab between 'Blog' and 'Publications' in the right right hand column and looking for new homes for my excess menagerie.  

To start the ball rolling, I have four different colour T.Rex models and one mono all ready to go.


I've signed each one and have them packed carefully in a box of shredded recycle paper.

Can you provide a good home for one of them?


T.Rex Original 

I have four signed coloured T.Rex models looking for new homes. If you'd like one of them please send your name and address along with a donation for a minimum of £25UKP / $38USD. (inc shipping) Thanks for looking after them! 


Let me know what you think of the 'Originals' idea in the comments below. Too Much? Too Cheap? My plan is to choose a donation price based on the complexity of the project. For example, I have a combination lock which I'll be adding for £35/$49. Any other idea of how I should implement it? Thanks for your feedback!

    Cool idea! I appreciate this

    Cool idea! I appreciate this both as a fan of paper craft/engineering and a collector of memorabilia. You could also try auctioning them off and let the market decide what they are worth. You could for example, auction off a few original Agreeable Sheep after you win the paper craft contest on instructables… 🙂

    I'll be keeping an eye out for an original of my personal favorite, the logic goats….

    This is a great idea, Rob. A way to give out autographs. As a writer of fiction, I can appreciate that. Good luck! I wish I had the money. 🙁
