After a long pause without showing anything from this toyline, I return with one of the two Dilophosaurus released in the first wave of the Jurassic Park toyline. The other one is the "Electronic" Dilophosaurus shown in entry #285.
This one is a much simpler toy. The dinosaur, if you can remember the movie, could spit venom. In the movie attacks and kills Dennis Nedry, and to add some visual effects, the dinosaur had a skin around the neck that could extend when atacking. This skin is an invention for the movie, because the real dinosaur did not have that.
To this extent, the "normal" dilophosaurus is more realistic than the "electronic" dilophosaurus. Morphologically is very accurate and the plastic used is also a softer one.
The dinosaur can spit water by pushing its belly, which is a very nice feature ("with Dino-Strike Venom Spray!"). It was also present in the figure of Dennis Nedry, which had some water-launching weapon.
