Jurassic Park T-Rex Repair

The T-Rex in Jurassic Park is a neat toy, but it can be prone to problems.  In fact, it can be down right aggravating at times.

My T-Rex stopped eating pinballs.  It would bend down, but it could not pick up the pinball.  Let’s do some investigation and see how things look:

I think we can safely say that someone had performed some repair work on the T-Rex in the past.  The T-Rex usually goes up and down a few times during any game, so the wires going to the coil that opens and closes the mouth get flexed quite a bit.  If your T-Rex won’t chomp, this wiring is the first suspect.

Here’s my completed repair, all zipped up and secured.  Much better.  We’ll get a lot of reliable chomping out of him now.
