Excitement Builds for New Papo Dinosaurs

New Papo Prehistoric Animals Make Their Debut – Part 1

Team members at Everything Dinosaur got the chance to admire the five new Papo prehistoric animal models for 2016 recently, the first opportunity staff have had to get up close to the new Papo Baryonyx, green Velociraptor, the coloured variant running T. rex , Papo Kaprosuchus and the feathered Velociraptor.  The models, four of them dinosaurs, certainly are quite a striking bunch (not sure what the collective noun for a group of Papo models should be), we were able to take measurements and get an idea of approximate scale.

First up, the very quirky Baryonyx, much more colourful than the catalogue pictures had indicated.  It definitely reflects the Papo style.

It is certainly a very intriguing replica, with its stripes, rusty coloured neck, spikes and tripodal stance.  The new Papo Baryonyx measures 33 centimetres long and that elegantly sculpted upper jaw reaches some 16.5 centimetres into the air.  This new model is bigger than the Papo Allosaurus and only slightly smaller than the imposing Papo Spinosaurus, it is approximately the size of the Papo Running T. rex replica.  Based on these measurements, team members estimate that the Papo Baryonyx figure is around the 1:30 scale, but since the maximum size of Baryonyx is not known, this may be an underestimate on our part.

Everything Dinosaur expects this exciting new Spinosauridae to be in its store Everything Dinosaur in a few weeks time.

Papo have gained a strong reputation for their Theropod dinosaur models, and the existing Velociraptor model is a firm favourite amongst dinosaur fans and collectors.  The new feathered Papo Velociraptor is roughly the same size as the non-feathered Papo “raptor”, measuring 17 centimetres in length.  The tail has an attractive plume of feathers and, as you would expect from Papo the detailing and the paintwork are excellent.

Team members report that the hip height of this new dinosaur model is 7.5 centimetres approximately.  Like the Baryonyx, it too, will be available from Everything Dinosaur in just a few weeks.

Running T. rex Colour Variant

Joining the feathered Velociraptor and the Baryonyx at Everything Dinosaur will be a new colour variant of the very successful Papo Running T. rex dinosaur model.  It is the same size as the existing figure in the Papo range but the paintwork is most impressive and eye-catching.

Just like the Baryonyx and the Papo feathered Velociraptor this replica will have an articulated lower jaw and on our first viewing all team members were impressed with the new style and paintwork.  It is a super edition to the Papo model range.
