CollectA Deluxe Bajadasaurus Gets a Makeover

Whilst we wait for the arrival of the remainder of the new for 2020 CollectA prehistoric animal models, we can reacquaint ourselves with one of their earlier releases from the spring.  The CollectA 1:40 Bajadasaurus model was one of six figures that Everything Dinosaur was able to secure stocks of, before the COVID-19 pandemic began to disrupt the global economy.  Dinosaur model collector Elizabeth commissioned Martin Garratt to repaint her Bajadasaurus model.  The result is a spectacular reimagining of this Early Cretaceous, spiky dinosaur.

A Remarkable Turnaround

The CollectA model has been turnaround very quickly.  Bajadasaurus (B. pronuspinax) was formally named and scientifically described in February 2019 (although the fossils were found back in 2010),  the design team at CollectA were able to move from the prototype stage to full production remarkably swiftly to ensure that this model was available in early 2020.

Our thanks to Elizabeth for sending into Everything Dinosaur some photographs of her repainted figure.

Elizabeth commented:

“I’m absolutely thrilled with what Martin achieved.  I’ve never had a piece from him that I didn’t like, of course, but inevitably some pieces strike a particular chord.  This one does.  I just wish I’d ordered a base as well!”
