Therizinosaurus – Enter the “Scythe Lizards”

Therizinosaurus (Therizinosaurus cheloniformis) from Collecta

The new Collecta Therizinosaurus dinosaur model will be available next year.  This is the second model of a “Scythe Lizard” the company has produced, the first being a Nothronychus that came out a couple of years ago.

Those claws certainly look very formidable, lets hope that the models can stand up to rigours of transport.  The model has been posed as if this Theropod dinosaur is about to launch into a display, perhaps to deter an attack or to attract a mate.

    excellent model and more realistic than Nothronychus which always reminds me of a “ginger vulture”. (Makes a mental note— must have this!)

    The Triceratops is a masterpiece that will surely penalty is so expensive.
    The Therizinosaurus is the best I’ve seen in sickle species of dinosaurs. One question is that regardless of the extraordinary quality of the figure is inspired by a picture of Brett Booth in a book entitled Thunder Lizards! How to Draw Fantastic Dinosaurs book whose author is Steve Miller of the publisher evergreen. It’s just a clarification this figure has turned over 180 degree and already I repeat with the Nothronychus by the same company.

    Hi There, just found your blog, looking good. I saw these guys in a documentary the other day and thought of the Iguanodon debacles of early paleontology, where does the horn go? Heh, big claws like that sure seem like a great weapon for a predator but they don’t have the teeth to support a highly carnivorous lifestyle. Anyhow, cool sculptures, Cheers!
