Dino Valley 2012 Helicopter

Another of the twists and turns for the 2012 line of Dinos from Chap Mei, this set comes with a repaint of a DV vehicle, plus a couple reissued dinos and a brand new figure.

The helicopter mold has been present in almost every CM line up to this point. A beauty, too.

MIB, Chap Mei 2012

Accessories. The cage is one of the finest Chap Mei creations. Copper in color, great in size. The accessories tree is the common case with great pistols, which falls just a bit behind the originals from Dino Quest.

White Deinonychus (DV3 Sneaky Tweak) and juvenile Velociraptor. This 2012 version has brighter eyes.

The "new" 2012 helicopter. Comanche-style from previous Dino Valley series.

Vehicle: Comanche-style Helicopter. Holds one figure. 2 non-working side cannons, one searchlight and opening canopy. The present half...

Comparing with its predecessor, it has a more balanced color, although the fact the older model has grey instead of white makes this variation a reason to have both...

Great design...

Figure: Unnamed figure 3. Other than the head and chestplate color, the same mold of the previously seen figures from this 2012 line. Now, an important factor. Don´t stress if your CM figures come with feet, legs or any limb like the one above. Some REALLY hot water (below boiling point)....

... and you´re golden.

  1. You take the best pictures of these Chap Mei toys.

  2. @Hobgoblin238: My pleasure. There are a few things, small tricks to get around pretty much everything.
    @jboypacman: Thank you so much!

  3. Great review again Jomi. Lookin forward to more this year and I definitely agree with the first two comments. In fact if you google images for virtually any CM toy your pics are usually top of the list and the clearest and most informative. Keep up the good work - John,Ireland.

  4. @John: Thank you very much and like I´ve been saying, keep coming and I´ll keep posting them :) It´s a pleasure when one knows people like it. Thanks!
