A Review of the Papo Therizinosaurus Model by JurassicCollectables
A month before the new “Jurassic World” film “Fallen Kingdom” hits cinema screens, JurassicCollectables have been busy creating their own blockbuster. Today, we feature their video review of the eagerly awaited Papo, new for 2018 Therizinosaurus dinosaur model. This new Theropod figure is rapidly becoming a firm favourite amongst dinosaur fans and model collectors.

The Papo Therizinosaurus Model
Therizinosaurus is one of the more bizarre members of the dinosaurian Sub-Order Theropoda. It is widely believed that Therizinosaurus was herbivorous, those formidable metre-long claws on the hands, were probably used to hook branches to help this large animal feed. The claws may also have played a role in defence against marauding tyrannosaurids, Papo have sculpted their figure in a pose that makes the animal look like it is rearing up, perhaps to threaten an approaching pack of Tyrannosaurs. In the JurassicCollectables video review, which lasts just under nine minutes, the narrator comments upon the pose of this new Papo replica. The model is very stable and “firmly seated”, the figure is resting on its tail, with one foot on the ground and the other slightly raised, so that the toes help provide support.

In this very well put together video, the viewer is given a guided tour of the Papo model and the figure is highly praised for its detailed feathery textures running down the neck and across the back and shoulders. The abrupt transition from feathers to scales on the flanks is commented upon and the wonderfully well-painted wings are shown. As a rather pot-bellied dinosaur, (a large gut is synonymous with a plant-eating dinosaur), Therizinosaurus had a relatively narrow set of jaws, the spokesperson for JurassicCollectables demonstrates the articulated lower jaw on the model and comments on the wet gloss look given to the mouth. The head shows lots of amazing detail including a prominent beak, a characteristic associated with most derived Ornithischian dinosaurs, but also present on this lizard-hipped representative of the Dinosauria.

“Papo Have Really Got This Nailed”
The narrator is most impressed by this new for 2018 Papo model. He examines the fine textures and skin tones on the body of the dinosaur very carefully and compliments the French manufacturer. A number of Papo models are used to compare the size of the Papo Therizinosaurus and off-colour Alan makes a welcome appearance towards the end of this excellent video review.
The JurassicCollectables spokesperson states:
“Papo have really got this nailed.”
Off-colour Alan had better keep well clear of those fearsome-looking claws of this plant-eating dinosaur.
