New Schleich Dinosaurs for 2017 (Part 1)

Everything Dinosaur Reveals the First of the New for 2017 Schleich Dinosaurs

After the successful introduction of the Schleich Dunkleosteus, the Herrerasaurus and the marvellous Barapasaurus models this spring, Schleich have been preparing new prehistoric animal replicas to introduce into their model range for 2017.  The first models of the new for 2017 Schleich prehistoric range are all dinosaurs and there is a strong Late Jurassic theme as three of the four large dinosaurs to be introduced early next year are associated with Upper Jurassic strata.

New for 2017 The Schleich Brachiosaurus

This model measures around thirty centimetres in length and the head height is a fraction over eighteen centimetres.  It is a decent size but nowhere near the size of the Schleich “Saurus” replicas which measured around forty-eight centimetres long and were approximately 1:40 scale.  There is an existing Brachiosaurus replica in Schleich’s “World of History” range and the new for 2017 replica is roughly the same size, but we at Everything Dinosaur can confirm that the new for 2017 Brachiosaurus model is a new sculpt, it is not a repaint of an existing replica.  Sources close to Everything Dinosaur have commented that this replica might be available January 2017, but realistically it would probably be available from mid February onwards.  Check out Everything Dinosaur’s Facebook page and this blog for more updates.

New for 2017 Schleich Stegosaurus

Having retired the World of History Stegosaurus this year, Schleich have been keen to re-introduce this popular armoured dinosaur into their larger model range. If we are not mistaken, this Stegosaurus featured in the Schleich Volcano play set that was introduced earlier this year.  The Stegosaurus replica measures fifteen centimetres long and those fearsome tail spikes are raised over eleven centimetres into the air.   As for when this model will be available, expect it quarter one of 2017.

Schleich New for 2017 Allosaurus

The third of the Jurassic dinosaurs is the predator Allosaurus.  Schleich have made a number of Allosaurus models in the past, they currently have an Allosaurus replica in their model range but we can confirm that the 2017 Schleich Allosaurus will be a new sculpt.  The new model measures a fraction over twenty-five centimetres in length and that nicely detailed head (with articulated lower jaw), stands around twelve and a half centimetres high, making the 2017 model larger than the existing Allosaurus replica.  Once again, dinosaur fans can expect this new model in quarter one of 2017.

New from Schleich for 2017 a Feathered Utahraptor Dinosaur Model

The fourth of the new introductions for the first part of 2017 is this colourful, feathered Utahraptor dinosaur model.  It has moveable forelimbs and an articulated lower jaw and although we at Everything Dinosaur could take issue with one or two anatomical discrepancies, it is pleasing to see a feathered dinosaur like Utahraptor enter the Schleich range.  The new for 2017 Schleich Utahraptor measures twenty-one centimetres long and that impressive head stands a little under nine and half centimetres high.

New Dinosaurs Logo From Schleich

Hot on the heels of some further print-led marketing of the Schleich prehistoric animal model range, the German company has introduced a new logo for its “dinosaurs” sub-brand.  This logo effectively covers all the prehistoric animals in the company’s portfolio, even if models don’t actually represent a dinosaur (Dimetrodon, Dunkleosteus, Quetzalcoatlus etc).

We are not sure what these new introductions will mean for some of the existing replicas within the Schleich model range but a spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur stated that collectors could expect some model retirements next year as well as further introductions to the Schleich prehistoric animal model portfolio later in 2017.  On that note, check out part two of our Schleich new for 2017 update coming out tomorrow.

    Looking forward to some of these, the stegosaurus has adopted a similar defensive pose to the Kentrosaurus I see. Now if only they would put out a new Triceratops to replace that unsightly mi-shapen brown specimen they currently have. IMO they still haven’t nailed it with the Allosaurus, and we,re still getting oversized feet and pronated ‘bunny’ arms. Thanks for alerting us to these all the same.
