A Video Review of the Schleich Herrerasaurus Dinosaur Model
Those clever people at JurassicCollectables have produced another dinosaur model video review. This time it is the Schleich “First Giants” Herrerasaurus that is in the spotlight. This figure was introduced by Schleich in 2016 and Herrerasaurus has been in the news lately following the publication of a scientific paper that reclassifies the Dinosauria. The paper, written by a number of eminent palaeontologists, including researchers from the Natural History Museum and Bristol University, puts the Herrerasauridae, the family to which Herrerasaurus belongs, outside of the Dinosauria. Herrerasaurus may not have been a dinosaur after all.
In this short video (duration a little under five minutes), a Herrerasaurus dinosaur model is unwrapped and put on the display turntable. The narrator discusses the model and highlights some of the features, including the quaint, retro, almost 1950’s feel of the model.

The video review gives model collectors the opportunity to see this quite large dinosaur model up close. The model may have a retro, almost “stop motion” feel to it, as pointed out by the narrator but there are still some lovely touches, such as the wet, glossy look to the inside of the nostrils and the careful paint job done on the eye and down the flanks. The narrator summaries the Schleich “First Giants” Herrerasaurus succinctly when he says that “this is an early dinosaur that reminds you of an early toy dinosaur.”

Thanks, JurassicCollectables for your video review of Herrerasaurus (H. ischigualastensis), it may not be technically a dinosaur any more, but it is still great to see a manufacturer creating models of Triassic animals.
