- Three (3) strategically placed POWER PADS bring this giant dinosaur to life with bright LED lights and roaring sounds.
- One POWER PAD brings him to full height, activating the LED lights on his spikes. Another POWER PAD sends him stomping forward while making some threatening sounds. The third POWER PAD opens and closes his powerful jaws while making chopping sounds. He even fires spears from a secret location inside his mouth.
- When T-Rex is pushed forward on his wheeled base he makes more interesting sound effects.
- He even has shooting claws, operated by the push of a button on his feet.
