Exciting Times for Eofauna Scientific Research

Eofauna Scientific Research has some exciting times ahead.  The company is soon to release details of the next model in its 1:40 scale replica series and when Everything Dinosaur has permission to do so, we will be telling our blog readers all about it and showing pictures.  In the meantime, team members from Everything Dinosaur recently met up with staff from Eofauna Scientific Research as the two organisations work together to help introduce new prehistoric animal figures. Eofauna Scientific Research consists of a team of dedicated researchers, creatives and specialists in prehistoric fauna.  With a broad background in the fields of palaeontology, biology, design and model making the organisation is ideally placed to develop a range of highly realistic, scientifically accurate prehistoric animal figures.

Working Closely with Model Makers

At Everything Dinosaur, we work very closely with model makers and designers.  Our aim is to bring to our customers the very best prehistoric animal and dinosaur figures available.  Sue, (Finance Director at Everything Dinosaur), held very positive talks with Asier and Joseba of Eofauna Scientific Research, in a statement following her recent meeting Sue said:

“We have been working with Eofauna for some time.  They are a very dedicated team and share our goal in being able to provide highly detailed, sculpted figurines based on anatomically correct, accurate reconstructions from the fossil record.  The company has some very exciting plans and we are looking forward to continuing our close working relationship.”

Steppe Mammoth (Mammuthus trogontherii) 1:40 Scale Replica

In October 2017, Everything Dinosaur took in stocks of the first model in the range, a replica of a Steppe Mammoth (Mammuthus trogontherii), a beautiful scale model which is based on real fossils of this Pleistocene-aged animal.

Rave Reviews from Model Collectors

The first PVC figure to be produced in this series has received rave reviews from model collectors.  Since, its introduction into the Everything Dinosaur range, the figure has received 5-star reviews (FEEFO independent data).

The review of Everything Dinosaur customer “Paleo collector” is typical:

“This is a skilfully sculpted figure with close attention paid to anatomy and posing, the molars can even be seen in the open mouth.  The delicate fur pattern and muscle definition underneath make this mammoth a museum quality piece.  The model is solid PVC and comes with a collectors’ card along with an info tag.  This is one of the most accurately sculpted mammoth figures I’ve ever seen and highly recommended for collectors of prehistoric models or elephants/mammoths in general.”

New Schleich Prehistoric Animals (Summer 2018)

By | February 20th, 2018|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

New Schleich Prehistoric Animals (Summer 2018)

Here are our first pictures of the second batch of Schleich prehistoric animal models to be released in 2018.  Collectors and dinosaur fans will probably be aware that Everything Dinosaur has had in stock the January 2018 Schleich releases for some time, joining these figures are three new prehistoric animals, two dinosaurs and one flying reptile.  The models are a juvenile Therizinosaurus, a juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex and a Pteranodon replica.  All three models are expected to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur in July.

The New for 2018 Schleich Juvenile Therizinosaurus Model (Available July 2018)

Schleich Juvenile Therizinosaurus

This model is slightly smaller than the Therizinosaurus model with the red/black colour scheme that was introduced a few weeks ago, hence the juvenile moniker.   Both the arms and the lower jaw are articulated (we think) and the body proportions are slightly different when compared to the adult Therizinosaurus.  The sculpt gives the impression of feathers on the body and the blood-red colouration is quite striking.  There is much more red on the juvenile figure when compared to the adult Therizinosaurus model (see below).

The Adult Therizinosaurus Dinosaur Model (Schleich)

The head shape and the blood-red colouration gives the Schleich juvenile Therizinosaurus a dragon-like quality.

Schleich Juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex

Also due out in the summer is a second juvenile figure, this time it is a juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex.   When this new T. rex figure comes out (July 2018), it will become the third large, individual Tyrannosaurus rex model available in the Schleich range.

Available July 2018 The Schleich Juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex

Schleich juvenile T. rex.  The larger, more robust adult Schleich T. rex figure can be seen in the background.

Picture Credit: Everything Dinosaur

This is an interesting sculpt, as although it is very similar to the Schleich T. rex figure that came out last year, it does have a different skull shape and subtle differences in the paint scheme.  For example, it has black vertical bands, perhaps to help hide this juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex from other apex predators such as larger members of its own kind or the fearsome, dromaeosaurid Dakotaraptor (D. steini).  Recently, it has been proposed that tyrannosaurids may have lived in family groups, if they did, then this implies that they would have probably hunted as a pack.  Palaeontologists know that as T. rex grew, it underwent a dramatic transformation.  It changed from a relatively fleet-footed, long-legged animal into a robust, heavy-weight bruiser.  Both types of T. rex model are depicted in the photograph above, the juvenile figure is in front of the larger adult model.  These two figures could represent two tyrannosaurids in a family, a sub-adult and the larger, heavier fully-grown animal.  Each family member might have had a specialised role in hunting, the faster, more agile juveniles could pursue the intended victim, shepherding them to the large, fully-grown adults that were responsible for bringing the prey down.

Schleich Pteranodon Model (July 2018)

Team members at Everything Dinosaur remember the Pteranodon model with a blue coloured head crest that was part of the old “Saurus” range and was retired around a decade ago.  Schleich are bringing back a large, individual Pteranodon model, but the new figure (available July 2018), is radically different.

The New for 2018 Schleich Pteranodon Model

Schleich flying reptile (Pteranodon).

This flying reptile model continues the current Schleich leitmotif for bright and colourful figures.  The model is posed as if it is flying and in the examples that we have seen, the painting around the head and that long beak is excellent.  We do appreciate that this figure has a somewhat stylised appearance, but we don’t want to quibble as it seems particularly suitable for robust, creative play.  Pteranodon remains one of the better-known members of the Pterosauria amongst young fans of ancient life, we suspect the popularity of Pteranodon may have influenced Schleich when it came to bringing back a Pteranodon model into its range.

Everything Dinosaur Adds New Paleo-Creatures Figures

By | February 18th, 2018|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Paleo-Creatures Arthropleura, Mei long and Scelidosaurus

Just arrived, three new additions to the Paleo-Creatures range of replicas.  The new models are a sculpt of the giant Carboniferous Arthropod Arthropleura, a model of the little feathered dinosaur from Liaoning Province, north-eastern China, known as the “sleeping dragon” Mei long and a fabulous figure of the early armoured dinosaur from England Scelidosaurus (S. harrisonii).

In Stock at Everything Dinosaur the Paleo-Creatures Arthropleura Figure

Paleo-Creatures Arthropleura

Arthropleura is believed to have been one of the largest terrestrial invertebrates to have ever existed.  The largest specimens, based on trace fossils (parallel tracks preserved in Carboniferous sediments), indicate animals that were up to 2.6 metres long.  These animals resembled gigantic centipedes, but they are believed to have been omnivores or possibly vegetarian.  They scuttled around the leaf litter in the dense, humid forests of the Carboniferous, fossil specimens have been found in Europe, North America and the Middle East.  The Paleo-Creatures Arthropleura comes with its own display base and fact card, the invertebrate replica measures a little over seven centimetres in length, so this figure is in approximately 1:35 scale.

Paleo-Creatures Mei long

Mei long is a basal member of the troodontid dinosaurs, it roamed the forests of north-eastern China during the Cretaceous, two specimens are known, both are believed to have perished when volcanic ash engulfed the area and both dinosaurs were found in what was thought to have been a sleeping position, hence the name Mei long which translates as “sleeping dragon”.

The specimen that has been declared the type fossil, represents a juvenile, measuring a little over half a metre in length.   It is complete and preserved in three-dimensions, a result of the rapid burial by the hot volcanic ash.  This dinosaur died with its head tucked under its wing and its legs neatly tucked under its body, a sleeping posture that is reminiscent of extant birds.  The similarity in resting postures provides palaeontologists with further evidence to support the Theropod dinosaur – Aves link.

Paleo-Creatures Scelidosaurus

The last of the three, new Paleo-Creatures replicas to be added to Everything Dinosaur’s range is the Scelidosaurus figure, a replica of a dinosaur whose fossils are associated with the small coastal village of Charmouth on the Jurassic coast of Dorset.

The Paleo-Creatures Scelidosaurus Figure

The Paleo-Creatures Scelidosaurus figure comes complete with a beautiful display base.  The Scelidosaurus can be displayed on its bespoke base with its prehistoric plant, or the figure can be displayed independently.

The Paleo-Creatures range features a host of amazing figures, all designed and individually sculpted by Jesús Toledo, a very talented artist based in Spain.  The Paleo-Creatures range includes dinosaurs and some of the more bizarre and astonishing animals that once graced our planet, incredible creatures such as Tullimonstrum and the giant amphibian Koolasuchus.

JurassicCollectables Highlights the Rebor “Raptors”

By | February 17th, 2018|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

A Video Showcasing the Rebor “Raptors”

In response to popular demand, those highly talented people at JurassicCollectables have produced a video highlighting the range of “Raptors” that have been made by Rebor.  In this highly informative video, the narrator takes the viewer on a tour of the numerous dromaeosaurid models produced by Rebor.  This is a chronological tour, not in terms of the geological age of the fossils, but a timeline that lists the order in which these replicas were produced.  As JurassicCollectables are big fans of the movie franchise “Jurassic Park/Jurassic World”, the figures, most of which are very reminiscent of the Velociraptors seen in the films, the narrator is able to discuss some of his favourite pieces.

JurassicCollectables Reviews the Rebor Raptors to Date (Early 2018)

A Timeline of Rebor “Raptors”

In this video review, which lasts a little over thirteen minutes, the first replica to be discussed is “Windhunter”, the Utahraptor figure (Utahraptor ostrommaysorum), which ironically is geologically much older than the Velociraptors depicted in the video.  The Rebor replicas have proved to be so popular, as not only are they excellent sculpts, but they remind collectors of the Velociraptors from the film franchise.  Some of the Rebor models pay tribute to Stanley “Stan” Winston, the American television and film special make-up effects creator responsible for the majority of the dinosaurs seen in the early “Jurassic Park” films.  This explains some of the names chosen by Rebor such as the baby Velociraptor figure “Stan” and the 1:18 scale cursorial replica “Winston”, which the narrator heralds as one of his personal favourites.

Bronze Effects

It is not only the people behind the films that are honoured by this part of the Rebor range.  When the first film in the dinosaur-themed franchise came out, “Jurassic Park”, in 1993, a series of limited-edition bronze dinosaur models were cast.  Rebor produced their own limited-edition “Raptors” the bronze-effect “Father and Son” figures which were based on the “Winston and Stan” Velociraptor replicas.  In the video, the commentator points out the superb detailing on these figures and even highlights the areas on the models where the bronze-effect has been given a greenish tinge, to mimic the metal as it ages.

Only 1,000 of these model sets were produced, still, Rebor fans can view these figures in the JurassicCollectables video.  JurassicCollectables have done a good job in discussing the various Rebor models representing “Raptors” in chronological order, from the first to be produced to the latest such as “Gunn” and “Rose”, for completeness here is Everything Dinosaur’s list of Rebor dromaeosaurids from the first model to be produced to the very latest to come off the production line.

The List of Rebor Dromaeosaurids (First to Latest)

  • Rebor “Windhunter” Utahraptor ostrommaysorum
  • Rebor Club Selection Velociraptor Triplets (limited edition)
  • Rebor 1:6 scale Velociraptor Hatchlings
  • Rebor 1:35 scale baby Utahraptor “Breeze”
  • Rebor 1:18 scale baby Velociraptor “Stan”
  • Rebor Velociraptor “Winston”
  • Rebor “Father and Son” Velociraptor set (limited edition in bronze effect) – “Winston and Stan”
  • Rebor “Cerberus Clan” a trio of Deinonychus figures (D. antirrhopus)
  • Rebor 1:18 scale leaping Velociraptors “Spring-heeled Jack” and “Alex Delarge”
  • Rebor 1:18 scale Velociraptor “Pete”
  • Rebor 1:18 scale Velociraptors “Gunn” and “Rose”

More Raptors to Come

Rebor has plans to add more dromaeosaurids to their model range.  Collectors will have the chance to add even more figures to their very own raptor pack.  As for personal favourites, we agree with the narrator in the JurassicCollectables video, “Winston” is very popular amongst Everything Dinosaur team members, but for the moment, this replica is just pipped by a nose by the excellent Velociraptor “Pete”.

A Customised Schleich Psittacosaurus

By | February 2nd, 2018|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Schleich Psittacosaurus Gets a Makeover

At Everything Dinosaur, we are always keen to receive pictures from our customers of their model collections.  Many of the models and figures are displayed in dioramas and prehistoric scenes and it always amazes us when we see these fantastic creations.  We have concluded that there are a lot of very talented people who collect prehistoric animals.  Take for example, Elizabeth, an enthusiastic collector who commissioned Martin Garratt of UMF Models to customise her recently purchased Schleich Psittacosaurus figure.

The New for 2018 Schleich Psittacosaurus Dinosaur Model

The new for 2018 Schleich Psittacosaurus has a lot going for it.  The pose is quite dynamic and the model has plenty of carefully crafted skin texture.  Schleich deserve considerable credit for creating a figure that reflects the latest scientific thinking when it comes to this early member of the Cerapoda.  Martin Garratt was able to repaint this little dinosaur and he has produced a beautiful diorama influenced by the recently published research into Psittacosaurus that indicated that this forest dweller probably had countershading to help to keep it safe.

Psittacosaurus and Countershading

Everything Dinosaur team members have been lucky enough to have viewed up close the remarkable fossil specimen that formed the basis of the research into the colouration of Psittacosaurus.  The study was published in 2016 in the academic journal “Current Biology”.  The authors of the paper, including researchers from the University of Bristol, concluded that this plant-eating dinosaur was light underneath but darker on its back.  This pattern is known as countershading and is a seen in a number of animals today.  To help illustrate the team’s conclusions, talented palaeoartist and model maker Bob Nicholls was asked to create a life-sized model of the creature so that the effectiveness of the camouflage could be tested.

Dioramas and Dinosaur Research Coming Together

It is great to be able to view a customised dinosaur model that has been influenced by actual scientific research.  Ironically, thanks to copious fossil specimens from Asia, the Psittacosaurus genus is perhaps, the most studied of all the dinosaur genera.  Martin’s composition certainly mirrors the very latest thinking with regards to this two-metre-long dinosaur.

Giant Megatherium Soft Toy

By | January 28th, 2018|Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

A Giant Megatherium Soft Toy is in Stock at Everything Dinosaur

Everything Dinosaur has added a beautiful, very cuddly Megatherium soft toy to its range of prehistoric animal soft toys.  Megatherium, otherwise known as the giant ground sloth, was a member of the Order Xenarthra, which includes extant mammals such as armadillos, tree sloths and anteaters.  These giant browsers ranged across the Americas, from Argentina in the south to as far north as the mid United States.  Weighing as much as a White Rhinoceros and standing some four metres or more in height (when on their hind legs), these animals were most probably avoided by Stone Age hunters.

The Beautiful Megatherium Soft Toy

Evolved in South America

These large mammals originally evolved in South America, but spread into North America when the American land bridge was formed.  Numerous fossils have been discovered including preserved hair, fossilised footprints and fossil dung (coprolite).  Fossils of giant ground sloths were studied by Charles Darwin as part of his scientific research whilst voyaging on the Beagle in the 1830’s, although the first recorded study of Megatherium fossils took place much earlier (1789).

To view the new for 2018 Megatherium soft toy and Everything Dinosaur’s full range of prehistoric animal soft toys: Ice Age and Prehistoric Animal Soft Toys

Giant Megatherium Soft Toy

Standing a fraction under thirty centimetres tall and measuring around twenty-five centimetres in length, this really is a super-sized, giant ground sloth soft toy.  His fur is very soft and our Megatherium is sponge washable so he (or she), can accompany your young palaeontologist on their fossil finding adventures.  To clean this soft toy giant ground sloth, simply wipe his fur with a damp cloth or sponge, using some mild soap and when it is dry, simply brush gently to restore the pile of the fur.  Like the majority of the soft toys supplied by Everything Dinosaur, the Megatherium is suitable for very young children, from nought years and upwards.

The Megatherium Soft Toy has a Very Appealing Face

An Endearing Megatherium Soft Toy

It is quite an endearing looking animal.  It has tiny brown ears, sticking up out of its thick, fudge coloured fur and it has a very cute face.  We think that lots of young prehistoric animal fans are going to adore this latest edition to our product range.  The word “Megatherium” means “great beast”, so we think that many children are going to have a great time with this particular prehistoric animal soft toy.  Even the claws are beautifully created, they are white felt and check out this soft toy’s beautifully soft foot pads.

Sales of this item help to support the Natural History Museum in London.  Megatherium might be extinct, but this prehistoric animal will find a whole new generation of admirers thanks to this new plush.

JurassicCollectables Reviews the CollectA Deluxe Styracosaurus

CollectA Deluxe Styracosaurus Reviewed by JurassicCollectables

The very talented people at JurassicCollectables have produced a video review of the CollectA Deluxe Styracosaurus figure.  Over the last few weeks, our team members have been working on a variety of projects, so we are only just getting up to speed with the latest video reviews from this website that now boasts over 61,000 subscribers.  It is great to see a video of this model, one of the most spectacular recent additions to the CollectA Deluxe range.

The JurassicCollectables Deluxe Styracosaurus Model Review

“Spike Lizard” – Reviewed

In this video, which lasts a little over eight and half minutes, the narrator takes the viewer on a tour of the features of this substantial model.  The CollectA data card that accompanies the figure is also discussed, it is true that this iconic dinosaur was named in 1913.  Styracosaurus (S. albertensis) was named and described by the famous Canadian palaeontologist and geologist Lawrence Lambe, it is one of a number of prehistoric animals described by Lambe from fossils found in the Canadian Province of Alberta.  The video focuses on the incredibly detailed skull and stunning array of spikes.  The photography is supported by clear oratory, as the speaker comments on the various features that this model possesses.  Just like the figure itself, there is plenty of detail, note is made of the high gloss effect on the orbit, giving the eye a realistic wet look.

A Glorious Head Sculpt

Given the fact that this Late Cretaceous Ornithischian had one of the most elaborate frills of any horned dinosaur, it is only natural that the video review should dwell on the skull and jaws.   This figure is described as having a “glorious head sculpt” and in the video, the viewer is given the opportunity to view this beautifully painted head from a variety of angles.   The edentulous (toothless) beak is discussed and comments are made as to the finish on the spectacular horn and spikes.

JurassicCollectables have produced several CollectA model reviews, these have all been posted up onto their popular YouTube channel.  This channel is well-worth checking out and Everything Dinosaur recommends that model fans subscribe.

Subtle Variation in the Skin Colouration

The video is well-lit enabling the viewer to get close views of the clever subtleties in skin tone and colour variations on the model.  The range of different sized scales on the figure are demonstrated and the commentator reports that this is a very realistic looking dinosaur.

This figure has proved to be very popular amongst collectors and Styracosaurus itself remains one of the most instantly recognisable of all the dinosaurs.  Our thanks to JurassicCollectables and “off-colour Alan” for showcasing this figure, even if poor Alan was a little unsteady on his feet!  Great to see the classic, green standing Tyrannosaurus rex model used as a comparison, these two figures work really well together.  Not sure how successful the Styracosaurus replica would be as a book end, as suggested by the narrator in one part of this highly entertaining and informative video.

Schleich Dinosaurs

As well as covering the German company’s range of wildlife, fantasy and farm animals, the catalogue showcases the growing range of prehistoric animal models that Schleich is now producing.  The number of dinosaur models had been reduced but slowly and steadily Schleich has been building up its prehistoric animal portfolio.  So far, 2018 has seen a total of five new Schleich prehistoric animal models, including a very colourful Triceratops and a Psittacosaurus that has won plenty of praise from fossil hunters as well as dinosaur fans.
