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.
