Here is Marx's second release of Tyrannosaurus Rex. Perhaps Marx decided to put Potbelly on a diet...
 
Tyrannosaurus v.2 was part of the "revised" mold group, introuced in 1964. He is in a much more dynamic pose (I can't help but imagine him with a pair of ice skates on, actually) than his earlier counterpart. I suspect that he may have been influenced, at least a little, by the drawing by Charles Knight (a famous early 20th century paleo-artist).
