In Praise of the Papo Pachyrhinosaurus Dinosaur Model

It was sad to hear that the excellent Papo Pachyrhinosaurus dinosaur model was being retired by the French model and figure manufacturer.  This horned dinosaur replica is now out of production and dinosaur fans and collectors will find the Pachyrhinosaurus more and more difficult to find in the future.  Fortunately, Everything Dinosaur was able to acquire some of the models from the last ever production run and this beautifully sculpted model of a Late Cretaceous herbivorous dinosaur is still available from the UK-based dinosaur company.  Everything Dinosaur were able to assist a dinosaur model collector to choose a Papo Pachyrhinosaurus to add to their model collection.

We were asked to take some pictures for a discerning Papo collector so that they could select a replica for us to send to them.  Not a problem, one of our team members was happy to personally select a couple of models and to email some photographs so the collector could choose which Pachyrhinosaurus they wanted.

To assist the model collector with their choice, each of the images was labelled so that the two models could be distinguished from each other.  In the picture above, it looks like the two dinosaurs are about to challenge each other to a fight.  Scientists believe that horned dinosaurs may have used their huge neck frills and horns to display to one another, they may also have indulged in shoving and butting matches, to win mates or perhaps to decide social hierarchy within the herd.

Wonderfully Detailed Dinosaur Model

The Papo Pachyrhinosaurus is a wonderfully detailed dinosaur model, the picture above shows a close-up view of the neck frill and the skull.  These really are beautiful and very detailed models.

The Model Collector Chose Pachyrhinosaurus Number 1

It was a difficult decision, but in the end the dinosaur model collector decided on model number 1.  This has been set aside and is ready to go out with some other prehistoric animal figures that the collector had ordered.  Good job the collector was able to get themselves a Papo Pachyrhinosaurus to add to their collection, after all, this figure is rapidly becoming rare and, just like Pachyrhinosaurus, this model is soon going to be extinct.
