Three New Schleich Conquering the Earth Prehistoric Animal Models

Three new for 2018, prehistoric animal models have arrived at Everything Dinosaur.  The Schleich Therizinosaurus (juvenile), Schleich Pteranodon and the juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex figures are now in stock.  Everything Dinosaur team members were given a “sneaky peek” of these three “Conquering the Earth” models several months ago and we did post up a number of photographs that we had taken onto our social media pages.  We are very excited to be able to add these three Archosaurs to our Schleich portfolio.

Just Arrived at Everything Dinosaur – New for 2018 Prehistoric Animal Models

The Schleich Tyrannosaurus rex Juvenile

Over the years, Schleich have produced several T. rex dinosaur models.  This latest edition to the “Conquering the Earth” range measures a little over twenty-three centimetres in length from the tip of that articulated lower jaw to the end of the tail.  The model is well balanced and shows lots of detail, the painting on the inside of the mouth is particularly well done.  It makes a striking companion piece to the Tyrannosaurus rex model introduced by Schleich in the summer of 2017.

The Schleich Therizinosaurus Juvenile

Schleich have also introduced a juvenile Therizinosaurus dinosaur replica to go along with their repainted Therizinosaurus figure that came out earlier this year.  This model measures a fraction under sixteen centimetres high and is around twenty centimetres in length.

The Schleich juvenile Therizinosaurus dinosaur model has a pair of articulated front arms, just like the adult version of this Late Cretaceous Theropod.

Schleich Pteranodon

The last model to be added to Everything Dinosaur’s range is not a dinosaur, but a member of the Pterosauria, arguably one of the most famous of all the flying reptiles – Pteranodon.  Schleich have made Pteranodon models in the past, there was a Pteranodon included in the now retired “Saurus” range of prehistoric animal figures, but this new figure is much more brightly painted.

The Pteranodon model is a representation of Pteranodon longiceps, the type species, first named and described in 1876 by the famous American palaeontologist Othniel Charles Marsh.  The wingspan of the model measures approximately twenty-two centimetres.  It is a very colourful flying reptile and we note the texture of the model’s skin, giving the impression of a covering of pycnofibres (hair-like filaments) on the body.  It is likely that these pterosaurs were endothermic (warm-blooded), these fibres would have helped to retain body heat and to insulate the animal.

A spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur commented:

“These three new figures are welcome additions to the Schleich Conquering the Earth model range.  Two of the new models represent juvenile Theropods.  The long crest of the colourful Pteranodon probably played a role in display.”
