I've looked at the Hasbro Websites Jurassic World page, and have come to the following Conclusion: Toys in this line either look great, or look like, pardon my 'language', scrap.

Got the T-rex for my Bday. Love him. Solid plastic and paint apps.
Those mixed breeds look awesome but i don't really want anything but original dinos, not made up ones.

Many Dinosaurs didn't have saurus at the end of their name.
Iguanadon
Baryonyx
Suchomimus
etc

Yeah, but those names all come from actual words.
  • Iguanodon is Greek for "Iguanus tooth"
  • Baryonyx is Greek for "heavy claw"
  • Suchomimus is Greek for "crocodile mimic."

There is no such word as "Indominus" though. There is the word "dominus" which means "master" in Latin, but as a noun.
e.g. dominus servum salutat = "The master greets the slave."
If you want to say "master" as an adjective, then you're looking for "domitus," and thus its antonym, "indomitus," which is where English gets the word "indomitable" from (e.g. "the indomitable Gauls").
e.g. deo adjuvante indomitus = "We are unconquerable with God's help."

Paulbot's explanation (spoiler tagged in his post) does offer a plausible in-story reason (which I wasn't initially aware of). Indominus Transformiaunobtainium!

Yeah I knew that they came from meanings. I thought you were saying that it is compulsory for a dinosaur to have 'saurus' at the end of its name. Being the mini-non trained paleontologist I am I got up and nerd raged... lol Sorry.

Also yes Indominus Rex is a stupid dinosaur name.

Thanks Omega, noticed BBTS says itís expected in May, so I might hold out for a little while longer to see if it shows up in stores around here soon before having to go the overseas online route.

Again cheers
