First of the 2014 Confirmed Releases from Collecta

Team members at Everything Dinosaur have been admiring the pictures of the 2014 model releases by Collecta.  The manufacturer intends to release photographs of their “new for 2014” model ranges over the next few weeks or so and Everything Dinosaur will be posting up the pics on its social media pages as well as on this blog site.  The first of Collecta’s “Prehistoric Life” range photos include the finalised version of the south-east Asian Spinosaurid Ichthyovenator, the Quetzalcoatlus with prey model, the dead Stegosaurus plus the 1:40 scale model of the fearsome Carcharodontosaurus.

These new models are going to delight serious collectors and young dinosaur fans in equal measure.  The dead Stegosaurus model, the second “deceased” dinosaur figure produced by Collecta after the successful introduction of their dead Triceratops in 2012 will prove to be very useful for model makers as they create Late Jurassic scenes.

The Stegosaurus figure has been slightly changed from the prototype, the pose is different and the plates on the back of the animal have a different hue.  It should prove a boon to model makers.

In addition to the popular Hatzegopteryx figure made by Collecta, 2014 will see the introduction of a second Azhdarchid figure with a Quetzalcoatlus with prey figure.  Team members at Everything Dinosaur asked Facebook fans to consider what sort of prey this huge Late Cretaceous Pterosaur might have captured.  There were some super suggestions, fish, a young T. rex, a mammal, even another Pterosaur, but the unfortunate victim is a baby Alamosaurus (Titanosaur).  This model has already had rave reviews just on the images alone.  We can’t wait to see the figures, they should be with us early next year.

The last of the pictures released for now, show the finalised version of the 1:40 scale Deluxe Carcharodontosaurus dinosaur model.  The head has been re-positioned and the colouration tweaked to make this large predator look particularly formidable.  It is great to see a large model of this dinosaur introduced by a mainstream model manufacturer.

Looks like there will be lots to look forward to in 2014.
