A Video Review of the New for 2018 Mojo Dinosaurs
JurassicCollectables have posted up an unboxing video showcasing Papo two prehistoric animals and the new for 2018 Mojo Fun dinosaur models. Everything Dinosaur sent our friends at JurassicCollectables a parcel containing the Papo Quetzalcoatlus which is going to be reviewed shortly by the talented JurassicCollectables team. In addition, the box contained a Papo Compsognathus replica, which will be the subject of a JurassicCollectables giveaway coming up soon. The other four models despatched by Everything Dinosaur were the four new for 2018 Mojo figures, the Giganotosaurus, Deinonychus, Diplodocus and the spectacular blue Baryonyx.

Colourful Dinosaur Models
In this brief video (it lasts a fraction under ten minutes), JurassicCollectables provides viewers with an opportunity to get a really close look at the four new and very colourful Mojo Fun figures. Each of the models is described in detail. The first to be discussed is the blue Baryonyx, which the narrator, who has not seen the models before, at first, mistakes for a Suchomimus. Some scientists think that Baryonyx and Suchomimus were very similar, in fact so similar that the fossils found actually describe the same dinosaur. The validity of the genus Suchomimus has been questioned, so it is quite easy to confuse these two Theropods. The second model to be discussed, is the spectacular Deinonychus figure. The narrator from JurassicCollectables confesses that this dromaeosaurid was one of his favourite dinosaurs during his childhood. The Mojo Fun Deinonychus has a certain “retro” look to it, a point raised during this most informative video review.

Giganotosaurus and Diplodocus
The impressive and sizeable Giganotosaurus figure comes next. The figure is huge! It measures thirty-five centimetres in length and it is one of the largest casts every created by Mojo. Last but not least is the Diplodocus figure. The long tail is admired by the narrator as is the skin texture and those striking white chevrons that run down the back of the model. The chevrons have been added as a homage to the genus name. This famous dinosaur was named after the double-beamed chevron bones found underneath the tail, an anatomical feature once thought to be unique to Diplodocus.

Mojo Fun Prehistoric and Extinct Animal Models
Mojo Fun have produced four very brightly coloured replicas. The company has stated their intentions to move away from the more muted model tones of the past and as a result these new figures are very striking. In the video review, the viewer is given the chance to look at the colour schemes and to examine the replicas in detail. Mojo Fun have announced that they will be producing re-coloured versions of a number of their existing figures, we at Everything Dinosaur are excited to see the results of the repainting programme.
