Schleich Animantarx Model Reviewed by JurassicCollectables

The latest video to be produced by those creative people at JurassicCollectables features one of the new for 2019 Schleich prehistoric animal figures – the Schleich Animantarx.  The Animantarx is described as adorable and as it represents an armoured dinosaur that grew to a length of approximately three metres.  The model works well in scale with JurassicCollectables regular “off-colour Alan”, who makes an appearance towards the end of the review.

An Adorable Animantarx

The narrator describes this model as an “adorable Animantarx” and it certainly has an appeal.  The figure is nicely proportioned and the wet-looking gloss added to the black eyes provides this replica with a certain charm.  It is described as “a cute looking dinosaur” and it is hard to disagree.

Animantarx

The narrator correctly points out that this member of the Nodosauridae family was named and described relatively recently (1999).  It is known from very fragmentary fossils, including a partial skull and a piece of fossilised jaw.  This dinosaur had a distinctive domed skull and tiny horns behind the eyes.  Features that can be seen in the close-up view of the head in the picture above.  It is this attention to detail that elevates this armoured dinosaur model.  Clearly, the Schleich design team have worked hard to produce a model that reflect scientific understanding.   The model may have flaws, but as the narrator points out, there is much to be admired when it comes to examining the dermal armour, the skin tones and the detailing of the body scales.

Comparing Schleich Prehistoric Animal Models

One of the great benefits of a JurassicCollectables video review is that it enables viewers to see up close a new figure and to compare it to other recent model introductions.  In this video review, the new for 2019 Schleich Spinosaurus figure is shown and the 2019, re-painted Dimetrodon makes an appearance.  Both the Dimetrodon and the Schleich Spinosaurus have also been recently reviewed on the JurassicCollectables channel.  As mentioned earlier, “off-colour Alan” appears in the video as well.  It is always a pleasure to see “off-colour Alan”.
