Rebor Bad Company Model Set Reviewed (Compsognathus)
Time to catch up with the YouTube channel of JurassicCollectables, a great video channel showcasing the very best in prehistoric animal replicas and other items for collectors. Take for example, their latest Rebor video, a brief review of the highly sought after Rebor “Bad Company” set of four Compsognathus figures. This video gives dinosaur model fans the opportunity to peruse this model set prior to purchasing.

In this excellent video review, the narrator looks at the four models in turn and then reflects on how Rebor have been keen to make models similar to the Compsognathus dinosaurs from the second “Jurassic Park” movie – the “Lost World”. As a spokesperson for JurassicCollectables stated on the company’s Facebook page: “you wouldn’t want to get lost in the forest with these guys around.” The pack hunting habit and social behaviour of these little dinosaurs inferred in the film and from this set of four Rebor replicas, is of course, pure speculation. Only two Compsognathus (C. longipes) have been described to date, the first specimen discovered came from the famous Upper Jurassic, lithographic limestone deposits of Solnhofen (southern Germany). The second fossil specimen, was found in a limestone quarry near Nice (south-eastern France), in 1971.
The size of Compsognathus is debated, as there is a considerable disparity between these two specimens. The German specimen (the holotype), is much smaller and probably represents a juvenile. In the video, all four models are compared in size to a number of other models including “off colour Alan” and a Rebor Hatching Velociraptor model. Rebor themselves, state a 1:6 scale for these replicas.
Mixing and Matching Rebor Replicas to Make Unique Dioramas
The JurassicCollectables reviewer demonstrates the flexibility of the Rebor range by bringing in a base from the Rebor Scout model “Breeze” baby Utahraptor and the 1:35 scale Ceratosaurus “Savage” base, these are used to create a little diorama that features the four compsognathids. The single figure “Sentry” is also included in a couple of shots, this demonstrates how interchangeable the Rebor range is and we at Everything Dinosaur look forward to mixing and matching in this way as the Rebor portfolio grows.

In the picture above the four Rebor Compsognathus replicas all look hungry. This is one group of dinosaurs that you would not want to cross if you were alone in the woods on Isla Nublar or Isla Sorna for that matter.
