Papo Dinosaurs 2017 – Quick Video

Last month, Everything Dinosaur team members got the opportunity to view the finished dinosaur models that are new for 2017 from Papo.  Papo will be bringing out a number of prehistoric animals this year, including a re-painted Velociraptor, a Ceratosaurus, Cryolophosaurus, a Polacanthus, an Acrocanthosaurus, plus a re-paint of the existing Oviraptor replica.  We were able to shoot a quick video (fifty seconds), which showcases these new models.

Papo Dinosaurs for 2017

The video gives viewers an opportunity to see the relative sizes of the various new dinosaur models, the first of which (Polacanthus and the two re-painted replicas), are due in stock at Everything Dinosaur in a few days’ time.  The short video (we apologise for the lighting), gives viewers the chance to see how big the impressive Acrocanthosaurus is when compared to the other new models.  The Papo Sabre-Tooth Cat (Smilodon), the Dimorphodon figure and the Cave Bear models were not available at the time, but we do have some pictures of these finished models and we will be posting them up shortly.

 Six New Papo Dinosaurs

The biggest of the new models, one of the largest models that Papo will be producing this year, is the awesome Acrocanthosaurus (A. atokensis) replica.  Like many dinosaur fans, Everything Dinosaur is delighted to see more models of this spectacular Cretaceous Theropod dinosaur coming onto the market.

The photograph above shows the new for 2017 Papo Polacanthus, complete with that famous sacral shield.  The model should be with us in a few weeks, it too, is a great sculpt and we can’t wait to get this dinosaur (first named and described back in 1865), into stock.

The last model to be introduced this year, is the wonderful Papo Cryolophosaurus dinosaur figure.  The photograph shows a close-up view of this skilfully painted, meat-eating dinosaur.  The design team at Papo are to be congratulated for their clever and very creative colour schemes.  We have already nick-named this particular model “the Papo Elvis”, in honour of that unusual nasal crest that this dinosaur had, the function of which remains unknown, but it has been speculated that it had a role in visual display.
