Rebor GrabNGo Komodo Dragon Model

Everything Dinosaur team members have been taking an exclusive look at the up-and-coming Rebor Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) model, which is the first in a new product line entitled “GrabNGo”.  This is a beautiful, highly detailed model of the largest living lizard, which is sometimes referred to as the Komodo monitor.

A 1:6 Scale Komodo Dragon Replica

The model measures a fraction under 48 centimetres in length, but when the curvature of that impressive tail is taken into account the model’s true size is around half a metre, making this a 1:6 scale replica.  The skin texture has been skilfully created with accurate folds and appropriately proportioned digits.  The underside of the body and tail also shows lots of amazing detail and scales, particularly along the underside of the neck and jaw, although our figure lacks a cloaca.  The production sample we were kindly sent does not have a CE mark so the skin texture is uninterrupted along the entire animal’s length.

Dragon Skin

The lightweight but reinforced hollow vinyl material gives this figure a very solid feel and the subtle painting provides the viewer with an impression of an expensive desk-top figure.  The Komodo dragon is renowned for its tough hide.  The skin of this lizard, which can reach lengths of up to 2.6 metres and weigh in excess of 70 kilograms, is reinforced by tiny dermal scales (osteoderms).  It is thought that this armour helps to prevent injury when it attacks large prey or during intraspecific combat.

The Megalania Connection

This Rebor GrabNGo figure could also be used to represent the extinct giant goanna of southern Australia – Megalania (Varanus priscus, or sometimes referred to as Megalania prisca).  It has been proposed that Megalania represents a sister taxon to the Komodo dragon and like its Indonesian cousin, it was an apex predator within the ecosystem.  Size estimates for Megalania vary but studies of fossilised dorsal vertebrae suggest a length of around 6 metres.  If this is the case, then the Rebor GrabNGo model would equate to a 1:12 scale replica.

Is this a Megalania or a Komodo Dragon?
