Terrible '90s Dromaeosaur Face-Off: Semi-Final 2

It's nearly time - just one more semi-final round, and then it's onwards to the final and the chance to crown our king of the badly-drawn dromaeosaurs.

Before that, though, I can reveal that our first entrant into the final will be the "mutant '80s allosaur" (Hadiaz), the "gnarly, wrinkly dude (David), the one that reminded The Defective Brain of a "dessicated corpse" - or in other words, Deinonychus from The Humongous Book of Dinosaurs/Dinosaurs! magazine. Imhotep! Imhotep!



Time to introduce this week's semi-final contenders. In the blue corner, the deformed croc-faced Velociraptor from the Dinosaurier trading cards:



And in the red corner, the bafflingly wrong Velociraptor from Spotter's Guide to Dinosaurs and other Prehistoric Animals:



This should be a tough one! Ladies and gentlemen, cast your votes! And remember - you needn't vote for the worst one (as such), just your favourite. If it's your favourite 'cos it's the worst, then, fair enough...

  1. Hmm, this one is a bit tough, since they're more then a bit similar looking here. However, I think I will go with the red corner, due to its horrifying cranial growth.

    Hmm, perhaps it is actually the Zeus of dinosaurs, and raptor-Athena is about to burst, fully formed from his skull.

  2. It's a toughy, but I'm going to have to go for the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp in the red corner.

  3. Red corner all the way. What's wrong with the poor dear's head?

  5. A second for the blue corner. The psycho-toes and the arm growing out of the center of its chest push it over Bladder-Brain in the red.

  6. Red, because if I look at the other, I can at least form a vague idea of what it was meant to be before the artist drew it.

  7. Blue corner, because it's a lively pose at least.

  8. The red corner proves that the main distinguishing feature of the velociraptor is not it's sickle claws, or its bird like agility, but it's ability to grin like a rapist. Looking at that grin, it gives me the uneasy feeling that it's not only it's skull that pulsates.
