You know, when I was a kid I mourned the fact that we will never know how prehistorc animals are coloured. And now we know how at least some are coloured. I'm overflowing with joy.

I agree with Magoo.

You know how they have that hadrosaur mummy?

I want them to figure out the color of that one next.

Agreed, I hope the colors of pterosaur pycnofibres and Psittacosaurus quills are found too!

That's a reconstruction of microraptor? Nonsense. That's not a dinosaur, it's a reconstruction of some bird. Dinosaurs didn't look like that, they were scaly reptiles.

The one issue that I have with the "official" reconstruction is that the neck is too short and the tail is too thin.

Neither of those things are true and it can be shown in a moment. It needed nothing more.
