JurassicCollectables Unboxing a Battat Terra T. rex

JurassicCollectables Battat Terra T. rex Unboxing

Our chums at JurassicCollectables have produced another prehistoric animal model video.  For the first time on their YouTube they feature one of the Battat Terra dinosaur models, the Tyrannosaurus rex no less.  This model is one of the largest of the twelve Battat Terra dinosaur replicas currently available and JurassicCollectables present an unboxing video, opening the package that we sent them, we note the very sensible advice about using a craft knife.

The Battat Terra Dinosaurs

The Battat Terra dinosaurs were introduced last year, they are repaints of the model line created by Battat and the highly respected, American palaeoartist Dan LoRusso that was originally designed for the Boston Museum of Science.  Sadly, with the death of Dan, plans to introduce other replicas that were once part of the range, remain on hold but in our meetings with the Battat family we have expressed our interest in stocking all the replicas that become available.  We feel that this would be a fitting tribute to the inspirational Dan LoRusso.

The Current Battat Terra Dinosaur Range Consists of Twelve Models

The current Battat Terra dinosaur range is certainly very colourful.  As well as the Tyrannosaurus rex replica, there are five other Theropod dinosaurs included in this range.  They are the Acrocanthosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Crylophosaurus, Carnotaurus and the scythe lizard Nanshiungosaurus.  Dinosaur model collectors are advised that the Battat Terra Nanshiungosaurus has been retired, stocks are available but this therizinosaurid figure is not going to be manufactured any more.

These wonderful models range in size from a compact eleven centimetres long to an impressive twenty-eight centimetres in length. In truth, a number of models are slightly bigger than the measurement figures we have given them on our website, as we have not taken into account the length of any curved tails.

JurassicCollectables Reviews the Colour Variant Papo T. rex

A Video Review of the Papo Colour Variant T. rex

With the arrival of the splendid Papo colour variant Tyrannosaurus rex model at Everything Dinosaur we thought it would be a good idea to mark the addition of this super dinosaur replica to our range by sharing the video review made by JurassicCollectables.  The video reviewing the Papo T. rex dinosaur model by JurassicCollectables really does this 2016 figure justice and the clear, close up photography shows off the fantastic colour scheme of this meat-eating dinosaur.

Detailed Video

In the twelve minute long video, the narrator starts with the head and points out the details including the fine paintwork on the articulated jaw.  The colour scheme is not quite as purple looking as other re-painted T. rex models made by Papo, but JurassicCollectables describe this model as “exquisite” with “really lovely work by Papo”.  The model is even shown in ventral view (looking at the belly), in this view the wonderful detail of the scales on the body can be made out, this is once again an excellent model from the Papo stable.

The Running T. rex Colour Variant Dinosaur Model by Papo

Splendid Theropod and a Welcome Addition to the Papo Model Range

The video shows the musculature of the sculpt and points out similarities as well as differences with other Tyrannosaurus rex models produced by Papo.  The coloured variant is compared with the Running T. rex model and there is even a brief appearance by the exceptionally rare green standing Tyrannosaurus rex figure that was retired by Papo some years ago.  Off-colour Alan was so impressed by the quality of the video that he was “bowled over” and he could not stand up to provide a scale next to this new for 2016 Papo replica.

There are still a number of new for 2016 models expected at Everything Dinosaur in the coming weeks, the spring has been a busy time for the UK based company with lots of new prehistoric animal replicas from Rebor, CollectA, Safari Ltd as well as the introduction of the Battat Terra line of dinosaur figures.

JurassicCollectables CollectA 2016 Unboxing (Part 2)

JurassicCollectables and CollectA 2016 (part 2)

Over the weekend Everything Dinosaur team members were able to catch up with their correspondence and time was found to view some of the prehistoric animal videos that we had been looking forward to seeing.  One such video was this excellent review of the next batch of CollectA prehistoric animals to hit the shelves in our warehouse.  This was a sort of “peep behind the scenes” by JurassicCollectables, the five models featured in this short review are not yet released and they won’t be available for a few weeks yet, so we are grateful to the talented team at JurassicCollectables who took time out to make this ten minute video – just enough to whet the appetites of dinosaur fans and model collectors.

New for 2016 CollectA Unboxing by JurassicCollectables (Part 2)

The models featured are (in appearance order) the majestic marine reptile Thalassomedon (pronounced Fal-lass-so-me-don), the “ostrich mimic” Struthiomimus, a tyrannosaurid Lythronax and last but not least the deluxe 1:20 scale Andrewsarchus and the Deinocheirus figure.   The narrator takes the viewer through each replica in turn and takes care to point out the details, such as the splendid feathers on the Theropods and the air brushing on the fearsome Andrewsarchus.  Particular attention is paid to the  Deinocheirus replica, a model of a dinosaur that recently (2014), received a makeover following the publication of a new scientific paper reporting on a study of more complete fossil material, first muted a few months earlier at the annual Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology meeting.

Everything Dinosaur Honours Dan LoRusso

The figures sculpted by Dan LoRusso for the Terra product line are re-painted versions of replicas originally designed for the Museum of Science (Boston).  Everything Dinosaur is proud to add the Battat Terra dinosaurs to its, already extensive model range, a fitting tribute to highly respected Dan LoRusso, who sadly passed away last year.

The picture above shows the splendid Carnotaurus (C. sastrei) replica, which is one of six Theropod dinosaurs to feature in this twelve model series.  Everything Dinosaur will offer all twelve models for sale plus, for a limited time, the complete set of all twelve replicas will be available to buy in a single purchase and at a very special introductory price.

Commenting on the addition of the Battat Terra dinosaurs to Everything Dinosaur’s extensive portfolio of prehistoric animal figures, a spokesperson for the UK company stated:

“It is great to see all twelve of the first wave of the Battat Terra dinosaurs added to our model range.  The shipment is due to arrive in the next couple of days and then they will be available on the company website.  These models are ideal for collectors and dinosaur fans and we are delighted to announce that a number of the Battat Terra replicas will be exclusive to Everything Dinosaur.”

Battat Terra Dinosaurs – A Wonderful Model Range

The Battat Terra series features a mix of different types of dinosaur.  Very well-known dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus rex, Stegosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus and Parasaurolophus are included along with some of the more unusual members of the Dinosauria such as the armoured dinosaur Euoplocephalus, Dacentrurus, Cryolophosaurus and Amargasaurus.  Naturally, as with all the named prehistoric animal figures sold by Everything Dinosaur, each replica will be supplied with its own fact sheet which will tell customers about the dinosaur, when it lived, what it ate and so forth.

The Papo Baryonyx “The Marmite Model”

The New Papo Baryonyx Divides Opinions

The new for 2016 Papo Baryonyx dinosaur model has been in stock at Everything Dinosaur for about a month now and team members have been monitoring the feedback and model reviews that we have received.  The figure measures an impressive thirty-three centimetres long and that head is approaching seventeen centimetres high, however, some dinosaur model collectors have found it difficult to come to terms with the very distinctive look that Papo have chosen to give this Theropod.

A “Marmite Model”

This replica is one of the largest models that Papo intend to release in 2016, it certainly is a very striking figure with its row of spikes running down its back from the long neck to the tip of the tail.  Some collectors have suggested that the chosen colour scheme with half the model painted with brown stripes overlying battleship grey and the orange top line, is just a little too showy and elaborate, some have even termed the paint scheme as “positively garish”.  One thing is for sure, the Papo Baryonyx certainly stands out from the crowd, particularly when the more toned down greens and browns of the Papo tyrannosaurids and the Papo Spinosaurus are considered.

Those clever people at JurassicCollectables provided a very insightful guide to this dinosaur model in their recent video review.  Everything Dinosaur featured this video in an earlier blog post, to see the video and the accompanying article click the link: JurassicCollectables Reviews the Papo Baryonyx

The “Wet Look” Dinosaur

The finish applied to the top half of the Baryonyx gives the model a sheen, an almost “wet look”.  This has been commented upon by many collectors, it may not be to everyone’s taste but it is very likely that Baryonyx made its home in low-lying flood plains with extensive rivers and many lakes in the vicinity and as a piscivore (fish-eater), it would have been very much at home in or near water.

Baryonyx May Have Specialised in Eating Fish

Correct Anatomical Features

The tripodal stance might annoy some, but there is a lot to admire in terms of the way in which the known anatomy of this Early Cretaceous dinosaur is reflected in the model.  For example, the nostrils are in the approximate correct place and the first digit has a large and strongly recurved claw (the thumb claw).  In addition, the jaw is elongated and care has been taken to give the upper jaw that distinctive notch.   The paintwork on the skull and in the very large mouth is quite exquisite, although we remain uncertain as to how wide this dinosaur could gape.  The folds of skin under the jaw give the impression that this dinosaur may have had a throat pouch, something that a number of palaeontologists have speculated upon.

To purchase the Papo Baryonyx and other prehistoric animal models in the Papo range: Papo Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Animal Models

Manipulation of the Feet to Improve the Stance

Some models, with a little bit of care and persuasion can stand and support themselves without the tip of the tail resting on the ground.  We have heard of dinosaur model fans using hair dryers or hot water treatment to make the lower legs more pliable and then have them manipulated so that they can provide more support.  We note the pads on the bottom of the feet are somewhat splayed out, this will help with stability as well as giving the impression that this heavy biped was well adapted to walking on soft mud.

The new for 2016 Papo Baryonyx model has got people talking, that in itself is not a bad thing.  We have nicknamed this dinosaur the “marmite model” as some people love it some people dislike it.

We would love to hear what you think about it.

JurassicCollectables Reviews the Papo Baryonyx

A Video Review of the Papo Baryonyx by JurassicCollectables

The first of the new for 2016 Papo prehistoric animal models is now in stock at Everything Dinosaur, and those clever people at JurassicCollectables have already produced a very informative video review of this, one of the largest models to be added to the Papo portfolio this year.  It is twenty years since Baryonyx was formally named and described (Charig and Milner – 1986) and since then, our understanding of the Spinosauridae and the sub-family Baryonychinae, which includes B. walkeri and its closest relatives, has altered quite dramatically.  The sculpt, the glossy, “wet look” given to this model and those dermal spines have certainly intrigued dinosaur model fans and divided opinions but it cannot be doubted that the model definitely has the look of a Papo replica about it.

The Video Review of the New for 2016 Papo Baryonyx Dinosaur Model

In this short video, (the video lasts for eight and a quarter minutes), the narrator guides the viewer over some of the finer points of this new replica – the attention to detail around the skull, the superb paintwork on the inside of the cavernous jaws (notwithstanding the rather too white of the dentition) and so forth.  JurassicCollectables show this new model from a number of angles, this really gives the viewer and any would-be model collector the opportunity to appreciate this replica and to make a proper assessment of it.  This is so much better than having to rely on just photographs.  The size of the new Papo Baryonyx can be appreciated when it is compared next to the classic Papo Spinosaurus and the now, ever so rare, green standing Tyrannosaurus rex figure (also Papo).

To see the range of Papo prehistoric animals available from Everything Dinosaur (including the Papo Baryonyx dinosaur model): Papo Prehistoric Animal Models

In the video, the Papo Baryonyx model has a tripodal stance (the hind feet and the tail resting on the ground), this too has irked some model collectors and at Everything Dinosaur we have tried to find models that balance on their hind feet for collectors, although this has not always been possible.  Hopefully, given the fact that a number of Papo Theropods also have a tripodal stance this will not detract too much from the overall enjoyment of the model.

There is much to be admired about this new Papo dinosaur.  We suspect that it will prove to be very popular with collectors and dinosaur fans alike, but it will, no doubt have its detractors.  We shall see what reviews and feedback we get from our customers and we look forward to welcoming into our warehouse the rest of the new for 2016 Papo dinosaur and prehistoric animal models.

New for 2016 CollectA Models

New for 2016 CollectA Prehistoric Animal Models

The next set of 2016 CollectA prehistoric animal models are due to arrive at Everything Dinosaur this week.  We thought we would post up some pictures of the new models, using some prototypes and samples we were sent a few weeks ago.  Coming into stock will be the beautiful horned dinosaur Mercuriceratops, the Tyrannosaurus rex corpse and the hunting T. rex.  In addition, dinosaur model fans will be able to purchase the new 1:40 scale Torvosaurus dinosaur model and the fantastic Deluxe (1:40 scale) Beishanlong.

The above picture shows the five new models that are due in at our warehouse in the next few days.  At the front there is the very detailed (and rather gory), Tyrannosaurus rex cadaver.  The bite mark on the thigh and the exposed ribs are a lovely touch and we are sure this figure will prove to be extremely popular with model makers and fans of dioramas.  Behind the T. rex body is our particular favourite, the beautiful Mercuriceratops (horned dinosaur) model.  In the centre, the splendid, grey and black Beishanlong (B. grandis), a member of the Ornithomimosauria (bird-mimic clade), can be seen.  This model has been painted in a colour scheme inspired by the Secretary Bird of Africa (Sagittarius serpentarius).  To the rear the 1:40 scale Deluxe Torvosaurus dinosaur model lurks and then to the left of the photograph the hunting T. rex can be seen.  They certainly are a very impressive collection.

The CollectA “Prehistoric Life” Series

The CollectA “Prehistoric Life” model range consists of over 130 models.  It is one of the most diverse of all the main stream model ranges available with all sorts of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals included within the series.  CollectA have built up a very strong reputation for the quality and finish of their model replicas.

These are not the last of the 2016 models to be introduced by CollectA.  Later on in the year, Everything Dinosaur will be expecting delivery of four more replicas, two dinosaurs (one of which is another tyrannosaurid), one marine reptile and a model of an animal that is believed to have become extinct shortly before WWII.   These new models are:

  • Lythronax (the new tyrannosaurid)
  • Struthiomimus (great to see a another ornithomimid dinosaur added to this model range)
  • Thalassomedon – a giant plesiosaur
  • Thylacine – also known as a Tasmanian Tiger, a carnivorous marsupial that, according to some cryptozoologists (and some zoologists for that matter), may not actually be extinct

The team members at Everything Dinosaur are really looking forward to welcoming all the new CollectA models into the fold.  Expect the Torvosaurus, Beishanlong, the two T. rex models and the Mercuriceratops to be available in just a few days time.

Matthew the Dinosaur King – Unboxing Video

It is always a pleasure to receive feedback from our many thousands of customers.  A number of dinosaur fans even have their own dedicated websites that review purchases made from Everything Dinosaur.  Take for example, Matthew the Dinosaur King’s YouTube channel, a site dedicated to reviewing his ever-growing prehistoric animal model collection and to dinosaurs in general.  Team members at Everything Dinosaur try their best to keep up with all the amazing video reviews that our customers post up.  There is never enough time to watch all the videos, or indeed, to read all the blog articles written about the various models bought,  however, from time to time there is a slot in our busy schedules and we get the chance to view and to comment.

Here is an unboxing video from Matthew.  In this short video (it is just under five minutes long), Matthew discusses his recent purchase of the new for 2016 Safari Ltd dinosaur models and the re-issue of the prehistoric animals – the Megatherium and the baby Woolly Mammoth.  He has produced a number of individual video reviews of these replicas and we are looking forward to viewing them.

Rebor 1:6 Scale Hatchling Velociraptors

Rebor 1:6 Scale Velociraptor Hatchlings

The latest offering from Rebor has arrived in our warehouse and for the time being Everything Dinosaur team members are in danger of being overwhelmed by a pack of baby Velociraptors.  Rebor has added a set of nine, beautifully painted, 1:6 scale hatching Velociraptors to their blossoming product portfolio.  All of the dinosaur figures have different paint schemes and fans of the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World franchise will, no doubt, be able to match a number of the figures to the various Velociraptor incarnations seen in movies.

We are not too sure what the collective noun for a group of Velociraptors is, perhaps a “savage of Velociraptors” might be appropriate.  Whatever the term, Rebor have taken care to produce nine differently hand-painted models.  Not only is the skin colouration different, but there is some variation in the eye colouration and in addition, some hand-painted replicas have a vertical slit for a pupil, whilst others have a rounded pupil.

Our chums at JurassicCollectables have produced a marvellous unboxing video which shows the models in all their glory.  In this short video review (around eight minutes in length), JurassicCollectables open a set of nine boxes in turn and provide a close up view of each replica.  At Everything Dinosaur, we have made the complete set of all nine figures available as a single purchase option, but collectors do have the opportunity to purchase models individually, should they wish to go down the mystery blind box purchase route.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“The boxes are “blind”, this means that you can’t tell which Velociraptor model is inside until you actually open the box.  When sold individually, these Rebor 1:6 scale hatchling Velociraptors are a mystery blind box item.  We cannot guarantee which particular figure is in which box, we do appreciate that a number of model collectors do enjoy this aspect of collecting, never knowing quite which one of the set they are getting until the box is opened and all is revealed.”

The Unboxing Video Review by Jurassic Collectables

All of the models are depicted in the classic Velociraptor form, there are no feathers to be seen, just lots of careful attention to detail.  Each model comes with its own stand so that the hatching Velociraptor can be displayed.  We are confident these little figures will prove to be very popular and we look forward to receiving comments from customers as they go about identifying their brood.

Wild Safari Prehistoric Mammals

Welcoming Back Old Friends (Prehistoric Mammal Models)

Those clever people at Safari Ltd have re-introduced a number of prehistoric mammal models into their Wild Safari Prehistoric World model range.  The models, had previously been retired but with the demise of the Carnegie Collectibles collection and the stopping of production of these scale models, Safari Ltd have decided to make available once again four mammals, namely: Amebelodon, the Giant Ground Sloth (Megatherium), the baby Woolly Mammoth and Doedicurus (a Glyptodont).

Welcoming Back Old Friends – Prehistoric Mammal Models

The hand-painted Glyptodont arrived in stock at Everything Dinosaur around Christmas time, the Doedicurus model has now been joined in our warehouse by the other three re-introduced prehistoric mammal models.  Although the sculpts are the same, the paint work on the models is slightly different.  This is most notable on the Doedicurus and the Amebelodon figures.  The Doedicurus has a little more silver paint on the toes and dermal armour (osteoderms and scutes), than the earlier version of this South American giant which has been identified as an extinct member of the armadillo family.

To read a recent article from Everything Dinosaur that explains the research into Glyptodont ancestry: Doedicurus DNA Solves Puzzle Over Glyptodont Ancestry

Updating the Wild Safari Prehistoric World Amebelodon

The new version of the Amebelodon is quite a lot different from the original Wild Safari Prehistoric World Amebelodon replica.

Everything Dinosaur customer and keen prehistoric animal model collector Mr R. Chan, explained:

“There are two versions, the retired version and the 2016 version.  The retired one has painted toes and tail hair, a grey paint job and some weathering on the tusks.  The newer version, has a more brownish colouration and has no paint on the toes or tail hair.”

Our thanks to Mr Chan for providing such a helpful explanation.
