By | January 28th, 2020|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Rebor “Broodlord” X-REX Has Arrived

The eagerly anticipated xenomorph/dinosaur crossover from Rebor has arrived at Everything Dinosaur.  The 1:35 scale “Broodlord” X-REX is now in stock.  Model collectors have got a new branch of the Rebor replica family tree to get excited about.  This detailed model has a wet-look about it, courtesy of the metallic colour scheme, our congratulations to the design team at Rebor for coming up with such an imaginative sculpt.

The New for 2020 Rebor “Broodlord” X-REX Figure

Your Flexible Friend!

The tailpiece fits neatly into the slot at the back of the model.  Do not be alarmed if your figure does not balance very well when first removed from its packaging.  Once that long, flexible tail has been inserted the figure is perfectly stable.  The rotatable arms, four back extensions and the extended tongue with the jaw can be found in a small, plastic bag at the bottom of the foam protection.  Carefully remove these pieces and fit into your model.  The beautifully sculpted tail, is quite flexible and we liked to pose our figure with the tail slightly curved round (as shown in the picture above).

Carefully Insert the Pieces to Create your Rebor X-REX

The model has rotable arms, a secondary jaw/tongue and four extensions on its back.

Examine the back extensions carefully, each piece fits into its own bespoke slot on the model.  Adding the tongue/jaw element can be a bit a tricky, we suggest collectors examine the inside of the lower jaw of their model to identify the slot for this piece.  Take care when inserting the tongue, we found that to secure this part in place a cocktail stick or tweezers could be used to push the peg on the bottom of the tongue into the slot on the floor of the mouth.

The Rebor Broodlord X-REX Metallic Variant (1:35 scale) is certainly an amazing model.  There are plans to introduce three more figures by the end of 2020.  A figure is expected every three months or so for the rest of the year, pictures of the proposed figures can be found on the back of the “Broodlord” box.  Collectors have a lot to look forward to in 2020.

Stegosaurus armatus – Thank You Rebor

By | January 20th, 2020|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Stegosaurus armatus – Thank You Rebor

In December, Everything Dinosaur received stocks of the 1:35 scale Rebor Stegosaurus armatus dinosaur model.  This beautiful figure is available in three colour schemes, “plain”, “woodland” and many team member’s personal favourite – “mountain”.  We had been asked to demonstrate how the tailpiece fitted into the model and we did produce a short video demonstrating how to insert the tail into the slot at the back of the figure, but we had more footage so we have posted up a slightly longer video that provides a little more detail about this excellent armoured dinosaur replica.

Providing More Information About the Rebor Stegosaurus armatus Figure

In this short video, (it is a little under one minute forty-five seconds in length), we show the “mountain” colour scheme figure as well as images of the two other colour variants “plain” and “woodland”.  We comment on the tailpiece and demonstrate how to connect it to the body.  In addition, we briefly discuss the fossil material that was once the type specimen for the Stegosaurus genus.  This fossil material was very incomplete, only the rear portion of the animal was preserved and only one iconic plate was found in association.  The fossils once ascribed to S. armatus, were replaced as the designated type material for the genus by much more complete Stegosaurus stenops material in a ruling by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN), in 2013.

We take this opportunity to thank Rebor for producing such an excellent dinosaur model.

Stegosaurus might be an iconic dinosaur, but compared to the horned dinosaurs of the Late Cretaceous such as Triceratops and its close relatives, there remains a lot of debate as to the exact taxonomic make-up of the Stegosauridae.

The Rebor S. armatus Dinosaur Model is Available in Three Colour Variants

A Tale of Tail – Tail Insertion (Rebor Stegosaurus armatus)

How to Insert the Tail – Rebor Stegosaurus armatus 1:35 Scale Figure

Just before Christmas, Everything Dinosaur received stocks of the 1:35 scale Rebor replica Stegosaurus armatus.  Dinosaur fans and model collectors will probably know that this figure is available in three colour schemes – “mountain”, “plain” and “woodland”.  Since these exciting figures came into stock, Everything Dinosaur team members have posted up several pictures of these dinosaurs.  Today, following a request from a Rebor collector, we have produced a short video which shows how to connect the tail to the model.

Sixty Seconds – Dinosaur Model Update

The video lasts approximately sixty seconds.  The model is shown and the narrator explains how the figure is supplied (the tail piece can be found in the box, adjacent to the rest of the figure), then how the tail slots into the model is demonstrated.  One firm push should do the trick, the tail fitting snuggly into the aperture.  In the video, the flexibility of the tail is illustrated and compared to the neck which is also flexible.

New for 2020 Wild Safari Prehistoric Animal Models in Stock

The new for 2020 Wild Safari Prehistoric World prehistoric animal models are in stock at Everything Dinosaur.  All nine of the new models are now available, Concavenator, Dilophosaurus, Deinonychus, Edmontosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus and Qianzhousaurus, six dinosaurs plus Shringasaurus, Sarcosuchus and the marine reptile Ichthyosaurus.

A Range Noted for its Scientific Accuracy

Safari Ltd has continued to build on its reputation for producing accurate prehistoric animal models and figures that reflect some of the latest scientific research and thinking.  For example, joining this award-winning range, is a replica of the Late Cretaceous hadrosaur Edmontosaurus.  Recent studies of fossil specimens from North America have led to palaeontologists postulating that this large ornithischian sported a soft comb-like crest on the top of its skull.  The Edmontosaurus figure has been given such an adornment, all part of Safari Ltd’s drive to reflect actual research into the Dinosauria and other long-extinct creatures from the past.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are delighted to have all nine of the new for 2020 prehistoric animal models in stock.  The range and the quality of these models demonstrates Safari Ltd’s commitment to model collecting.  Everything Dinosaur has more than a hundred Safari Ltd figures available, in what is, a most impressive range of prehistoric animal and plant models.”

New Models Based on Recent Fossil Discoveries

Safari Ltd are quick to introduce models and figures that reflect relatively recent fossil discoveries.  Take for example, the excellent Shringasaurus model, it represents an extinct reptile (archosauromorph), that was only formally named and described in August 2017.

Spotting a Gomphotherium

By | January 10th, 2020|Educational Activities, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Teaching|0 Comments

Spotting a Gomphotherium

Whilst on a visit to a school to deliver a series of dinosaur and fossil themed workshops to lower Key Stage 2 classes, one of our team members at Everything Dinosaur was given the opportunity to view some of the work carried out by the Year six children as they studied Darwinism and natural selection as part of their curriculum.  Several of the children had collaborated on poster displays providing an outline of Darwin’s ground-breaking theory regarding how populations change due to the transfer of heritable traits from one generation to another.  The posters included details of Darwin’s life such as his voyage on the Beagle, his work on the finches on the Galapagos Islands and of course, the publication of his book “The Origin of Species” and its consequences for academia and the wider world.

One part of the display focused on the evolution of the elephant family (Order Proboscidea) and our eagle-eyed team member spotted an image of the CollectA Deluxe 1:20 scale Gomphotherium model that had been used to help illustrate different genera of ancient elephants.

Many different types of prehistoric elephant were featured in the posters.  For example, one of the earliest and most primitive members of the elephant family – Moeritherium was featured, along with Deinotheres and representatives of the Mammuthus genus.

Picking Out a Papo Allosaurus for a Customer

By | January 8th, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Picking Out a Papo Allosaurus for a Customer

The original Papo Allosaurus dinosaur model, a staple of the Papo “Les Dinosaures” model range, has been withdrawn from production and retired.  However, Everything Dinosaur still has stock of this popular theropod figure and a customer from Canada emailed us asking for more information about this particular Papo model and wanted to see some photographs of an Allosaurus prior to making a purchase.

Naturally, our dedicated, enthusiastic team members were happy to oblige.

This model is likely to become increasingly rare in the future, the Allosaurus has been retired by Papo, for confirmation about other prehistoric animal figures being withdrawn from the Papo range, take a look at Everything Dinosaur’s exclusive blog article here: Papo Prehistoric Animal Model Retirements in 2019.

Papo Allosaurus New Colour Variant

With the announcement that the original Allosaurus was being withdrawn, the French manufacturer was quick to introduce a replacement, a new colour version of this Late Jurassic, carnivorous dinosaur.  This new figure is based on the same sculpt and it too has an articulated jaw, just like the original figure, but the colour scheme has been changed.

Commenting on the response to the Canadian customer’s request a spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur stated:

“We get a lot of prehistoric animal model collectors asking us about models that have been recently retired.  We try our best to carry stock of as many different models and figures as possible.  If a customer requests a photograph of a figure prior to purchase, then we are happy to do this for them.  We select a model, take the photographs and email them over to the customer, if they are happy with the model, then we set it aside and when the order is placed we send out the figure.”

Recently, Everything Dinosaur provided information on Papo prehistoric animal figures that are being retired this year (2020), in total four Papo models are being withdrawn: Papo Model Retirements (2020).

Rebor Broodlord X-REX Pre-Order Available

By | January 6th, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Rebor Broodlord X-REX Pre-Order Available

Rebor will be introducing four brand new, innovative figures this year which combine elements of science-fiction with the Dinosauria.  The first of these figures “Broodlord”, the X-REX metallic variant will be available from Everything Dinosaur around the end of February and this model is available now for pre-order.

Science Fiction Combined with Science – Ne Plus Ultra!

Those talented people at Rebor have combined the anatomies of a Tyrannosaurus rex with an alien xenomorph to create this stunning and magnificently detailed collector’s item.  When Henry Fairfield Osborn described Tyrannosaurus rex in 1905, he justified the “tyrant lizard king” genus by stating:

“Tyrannosaurus, in reference to its size, which far exceeds that of any carnivorous land animal hitherto described”.   The famous American palaeontologist added…

“This animal is in fact the ne plus ultra for the evolution of the large carnivorous dinosaurs, in brief it is entitled to the royal and high sounding group name which I have applied to it.”

“Ne plus ultra” reflects Osborn’s view that T. rex was the ultimate theropod dinosaur, the apex in carnivorous dinosaur evolution.  It is true that more recent fossil discoveries have led palaeontologists to describe a number of gigantic and terrifying meat-eaters, but none have the popular appeal of the “tyrant lizard king”.

How fitting therefore for the design team at Rebor, to use a 1:35 scale Tyrannosaurus rex sculpt as the basis for this, the first of four fantasy figures that the company intends to introduce this year.

Rebor X-REX “Broodlord” (Metallic Variant)

Measuring around 43 cm from those monstrous, double jaws to the tip of that alien tail, this figure demonstrates stunning detail and the careful painting provides a demonic, wet-look to the model.  It certainly is a remarkable cross-over between two popular genres.  X-REX has a removable tongue, the arms can be rotated and placed in different poses and the tail is flexible, so it too can be posed in a variety of positions.

Scaling Up a Shringasaurus

By | January 5th, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Drawings, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Shringasaurus Scale Drawing

Everything Dinosaur team members are busy preparing for the arrival of new for 2020 prehistoric animal models from Safari Ltd.  One of the new figures is a replica of the Middle Triassic, horned archosauromorph from India called Shringasaurus (Shringasaurus indicus).  Plans are advanced as we prepare for the arrival of the models, team members are already compiling the fact sheets that are to be sent out with these new additions to our product portfolio.

For Shringasaurus, as with the vast majority of the prehistoric animal models we supply, a scale drawing has been commissioned, primarily for use with the fact sheet.

Tale of the Tape

The actual model measures approximately 16.5 centimetres in length.  When Everything Dinosaur blogged about the formal naming and scientific description of this reptile back in the late summer of 2017* the length of this herbivore, based on the seven known specimens was estimated to have been around 3.5 to 4 metres.  Taking an average, Everything Dinosaur team members prepared the scale drawing (see above).  Although Safari Ltd do not publish a scale for these types of models, the new for 2020 Shringasaurus is in approximately 1:23 scale.

Illustrating Atlasaurus

Illustrating Atlasaurus

Our thanks to Caldey who sent into Everything Dinosaur a beautiful illustration of the bizarre north African sauropod Atlasaurus (A. imelakei) which had been inspired by her recent purchase of the Eofauna Scientific Research Atlasaurus model.

Picture Credit: Caldey

Known from a single fossil specimen discovered in sandstone sediments in the Béni Mellal-Khénifra region of Morocco.  Atlasaurus is just one of a handful of sauropods that have been found in north Africa and it is the most complete.  The fossils, believed to represent one animal, consist of a partial skull, a considerable portion of the postcranial skeleton and a partial tail.  This dinosaur is estimated to have been around fifteen metres in length.

Bizarre Sauropod Body Proportions

The body plan of this herbivorous dinosaur was very different from its better-known sauropod contemporaries from North America, China and Europe.  Its limb bones were proportionately longer than most other sauropodomorphs and its front legs were longer than its hind legs, so its back sloped from the shoulders to the tail.  Unusually, the neck was relatively short for such a large animal.  Scientists have postulated that the long limbs evolved to assist this dinosaur when feeding.  It could reach vegetation that other herbivorous dinosaurs could not reach.

Rebor Stegosaurus Models in Stock

The trio of Rebor 1:35 scale Stegosaurus models called “Garden” are in stock at Everything Dinosaur.  All three colour variants – “Plain”, “Woodland” and “Mountain” have arrived and what a tremendous trio of Thyreophorans they make!

Each figure is supplied with its own presentation base and the tail equipped with its “thagomizer”, slots neatly into the model to form a spectacular display piece  The colouration and finish on these models is really good, each figure has been given a glossy wash coat, which gives the plates a beautiful sheen and the dinosaur an attractive and realistic “wet-look”.

Stegosaurus armatus

Rebor have chosen to base these new armoured dinosaur figures on the Stegosaurus armatus species erected by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1877, from fossilised remains found in Colorado.  A victim of the bone wars, the first Stegosaurus species to be named is regarded by many palaeontologists as invalid, it has nomen dubium status, but since the first description of this Late Jurassic herbivore was published, Stegosaurus has gone onto become one of the most recognisable dinosaurs of all.  The Rebor replicas are superb, the different colour variants depict different potential habitats for this low browser.  It is hard to decide which one is our personal favourite.

Flexible Tails and Necks

The Stegosaurus figures have flexible necks and tails.  The tail can be placed in a variety of poses, those carefully crafted spikes on the end of the tail can be positioned in such a way as to indicate that the animal is striking at an attacker with its “thagomizer”.  The thicker, shorter neck is a little less flexible, but the head can still be turned and adjusted so that dinosaur fans can create their own, unique dioramas.

Detailed Bases

Each model is supplied with its own base, but if you acquire two or more of these Stegosaurus figures then the bases can be interchanged between the models.  After all, with such a huge appetite these armoured dinosaurs probably migrated quite large distances to find food, from the open plains to the woodlands and perhaps to higher altitudes to seek some relief from the hottest and driest part of the dry season.
