Rebor T. rex Carcass “Bites the Dust” Pair Plain and Jungle

The Rebor T. rex carcass “Bites the Dust” models are in stock at Everything Dinosaur.  These two figures (jungle and plain colour variants), have arrived at our warehouse and team members have been busy contacting all those customers who asked to be emailed about the latest additions to our inventory and the Rebor range.

The Tale of a Theropod Dinosaur that Met Its Demise

From the pathology recorded on the fossilised bones of this apex predator, palaeontologists are fairly certain that T. rex had a very tough life.  It was a question of kill or be killed and it has been suggested that tyrannosaurs were cannibalistic and that these dinosaurs had to cope with vicious intraspecific combats, essentially fights with other tyrannosaurs, possibly over hunting territories, mates or kills.  As hypercarnivores most likely specialising in the hunting of large prey animals such as hadrosaurs and ceratopsians, attacks could go wrong, with perhaps fatal consequences.  We congratulate Rebor for creating such carefully crafted figures.

The Rebor T. rex carcass is available in two colour variants, plain (see photograph above) and jungle (see below).   Each figure measures around 34 cm in length and depicts a dead Tyrannosaurus rex.  They will make really exciting additions to a dinosaur model collection and provide an opportunity for model makers to build some amazing prehistoric animal dioramas.

The Queen Motif Continues

Collectors of Rebor models will notice that the rock group Queen motif continues with the introduction of these two fine figures.  In the spring of 2019, Rebor introduced a pair of T. rex replicas under the title of “Killer Queen” a possible homage to a track and later a single from the British rock band’s “Sheer Heart Attack” album from the mid-1970s.  Queen released a single entitled “Another One Bites the Dust” in 1980, it was a worldwide hit, reaching number 7 in the UK singles chart and topping the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.  We think these two fabulous fatality figures will prove to be a big hit with model collectors and fans of Rebor too.

Everything Dinosaur is Offering the Pair at a Special Discounted Price (Whilst Stocks Last)

CollectA Deluxe Lisowicia Video Review

CollectA Deluxe Lisowicia bojani Video Review

Everything Dinosaur has created a short video review of the new for 2020 CollectA Deluxe Lisowicia bojani model.  As well as reviewing the figure, we have provided an outline of some of the science behind the discovery and naming of this huge, Late Triassic dicynodont.  In the video, (it lasts just over ten minutes), we also discuss a “secret” Placerias replica and pose the question which prehistoric animal models would you put in a diorama with these two members of the Dicynodontia?

Everything Dinosaur’s Video Review of the CollectA Deluxe Lisowicia bojani Model (Dynamic Dicynodonts)

A Dicynodont Duo

There are not that many dicynodont models made by mainstream manufacturers.  Creatures from the Triassic tend to be somewhat underrepresented in model ranges when compared to prehistoric animals that lived during the Jurassic or Cretaceous.  However, fans of the Dicynodontia have two protomammals to choose from.  There is the CollectA Deluxe Lisowicia bojani, which was introduced this year (2020) and an eye-catching Placerias replica to add to your collection.

A Dicynodont Duo – Lisowicia and Placerias

The CollectA Deluxe 1:20 scale Lisowicia bojani model can be found in this section of our website: CollectA Deluxe Prehistoric Life Models and Figures.

Model Measurements

In the short video review, we measure the two models and comment on their size and scale.  The CollectA Deluxe Lisowicia replica measures around nineteen centimetres in length, stands approximately 7 cm high at the shoulder and that high-arched back is more than 10 cm tall.  The Placerias figure, is smaller, it measures about 10 cm in length and it stands around 5 cm high.  The sizing is apt, as although Placerias was a large dicynodont, it would have been dwarfed by the elephant-sized Lisowicia, should a Placerias ever encounter one.

Helping to Inform and Educate

One of the aims of our videos is to help explain some of the science behind the prehistoric animal that a particular figure might represent.  In our video review of the Lisowicia, we highlight where the fossils of this giant dicynodont were found and what other fossils were discovered in association with the remains.  Thanks to the thousands of bones that have been excavated from the Lisowicia dig site, researchers have been able to build up a comprehensive picture of the many different types of animals that co-existed with L. bojani.  For example, the narrator comments upon the discovery of the archosaur Smok wawelski and points out the difficulties in classifying this predator as either a member of the Theropoda or a rauisuchid – a diverse group of predatory archosaurs that sit on the crocodilian segment of the Archosauria family tree.

A Predator of Lisowicia – Smok wawelski

By | September 12th, 2020|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Photos/Pictures of Fossils|0 Comments

A Predator of Lisowicia – Smok wawelski

Prehistoric animal model collectors have been eager to get their hands on the new for 2020 CollectA Deluxe Lisowicia bojani, dicynodont model.  Everything Dinosaur team members are busy creating a short video review of the model entitled “Dynamic Dicynodonts”.  Our YouTube video aims to showcase the CollectA 1:20 scale figure and to discuss dicynodonts in general.  Ironically, in the Late Triassic there was a predator that the elephant-sized Lisowicia might have feared.  The bonebed in southern Poland has revealed the presence of a five-metre plus archosaurian carnivore.  A powerful animal scientifically described in 2011, the meat-eater has been named Smok wawelski and although a fully grown Lisowicia was probably invulnerable to attack, Smok would have been capable of bringing down juvenile or sick individuals, as Smok is the largest terrestrial predator known from the Late Triassic of central Europe.

The “Dragon of Lisowice”

Smok had a skull which was more than half a metre in length.  It was the apex predator of a diverse biota revealed by the clay pit fossils found close to the village of Lisowice in Silesia, southern Poland.  The first evidence of this large animal, consisting of cranial material was discovered in 2007, based on these fossils it was assigned to the Theropoda.  The braincase was similar to that seen in allosaurs, hence the classification.  However, more recent fossil discoveries have thrown doubts upon this taxonomic assessment.  It may not belong to the dinosaur/bird lineage of the Archosauria at all, Smok could be a member of the Rauisuchidae, a globally diverse family of archosaurs from the crocodile branch of the Archosauria.

The femur of S. wawelski is compared to femori representing two other archosaurs, one from the Theropoda (Liliensternus) and a femur from the rauisuchid Postosuchus.  When first described Smok wawelski was thought to be a theropod but further fossil discoveries led to its placement within the Archosauria becoming more uncertain.

Preparing a Video Review of Lisowicia bojani

Preparing a Video Review of the CollectA 1:20 Scale Lisowicia

Everything Dinosaur has been busy planning a video review of the new for 2020 Lisowicia bojani 1:20 scale replica.  This eagerly anticipated prehistoric animal model has been in stock for a couple of weeks and it has been very well received by model collectors and fans of prehistoric animal replicas.  CollectA are to be praised for introducing a model of a Triassic giant, as Lisowicia had only been named and described in 2018.

A Member of the Dicynodontia

Lisowicia is the largest member of the Dicynodontia, a group of protomammals that originated in the Permian and persisted (in the case of Lisowicia, the youngest dicynodont to be described to date), into the Late Triassic of Europe.  The fossil remains of several individuals, found in clay pit in southern Poland are at least ten million years younger than any other member of the Dicynodontia.

Picking up a Placerias

Team members intend to provide information about the discovery of Lisowicia and its significance.  In addition, the video will also feature an inexpensive replica of Placerias (another dicynodont, but this time from North America).

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Our objective for the video is to showcase the new CollectA Lisowicia and to discuss dicynodonts in general.  The video will also permit us the chance to take a good look at the Placerias model we also offer.  This particular synapsid figure has proved to be very popular with model makers wanting to include a variety of Late Triassic fauna in dioramas.”

New Papo Dinosaur Models in Stock

By | September 1st, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Papo Giganotosaurus, Chilesaurus and the Parasaurolophus Colour Variant

The first of the new for 2020 Papo dinosaur models are in stock!  The Papo Giganotosaurus, the Papo Chilesaurus and the Papo Parasaurolophus (new colour variant).  Papo’s production plans were badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic but the first of the 2020 batch of new figures planned for this year are safe and sound in Everything Dinosaur’s warehouse.  Team members are busy working through all the reserve lists, contacting customers and despatching the Papo product newsletter that we had been promising our subscribers.

The Papo Giganotosaurus Dinosaur Model

The Papo Giganotosaurus Dinosaur Model

When team members first saw a prototype of the Giganotosaurus they lobbied Papo to try and change the posture.  The figure is posed in the “kangaroo stance”, a body plan long abandoned by vertebrate palaeontologists.  The dinosaur might reflect the Allosaurus illustration by Zdeněk Burian, or the titular theropod “Gwangi” as depicted by Ray Harryhausen in the movie “Valley of the Gwangi”, as such it is very much a retrospective, but just like those earlier depictions, the replica certainly has appeal.

The Papo Giganotosaurus Model has an Articulated Jaw

This is a figure that is unlikely to appear in a museum exhibition next to a Giganotosaurus mount in a bid to demonstrate what scientists think this theropod actually looked like.  However, we suspect that it is going to make a lot of young dinosaur fans and Papo model collectors very happy.

Papo Chilesaurus

In addition, the new for 2020 Papo Chilesaurus dinosaur model has arrived, a replica of one of the strangest dinosaurs described to date.  The model measures around fifteen centimetres in length and the tail is some eight centimetres in the air.  The Papo Chilesaurus has an articulated jaw.

In Stock!  The Papo Chilesaurus Dinosaur Model

Regarded as a “transitional taxon” by many palaeontologists as its skeleton exhibits a suite of characteristics that show affinity to both the Theropoda and the Ornithischia, Chilesaurus has been cited in the debate regarding the structure of the Dinosauria and whether or not the Baron et al scientific paper published in 2017, has redefined the phylogeny of the dinosaurs.  Although regarded as a biped that was capable of moving around on all fours, Papo have chosen to put their figure in a quadrupedal position.

The Papo Parasaurolophus (New Colour Variant)

The third in this eagerly anticipated trio, is the Papo Parasaurolophus colour variation.  The model is the same sculpt as the previous Parasaurolophus but the mottled greens in the original figure have been replaced by a striking series of black stripes that run from the tip of the tail up to the neck.  The stripes are also present on the curved head crest.  The colour scheme of the figure is a blend of greys, browns and muted oranges.  The new colour scheme is certainly intriguing, the stripes would have helped camouflage this dinosaur in a woodland for example and there is some evidence to suggest that these duck-billed dinosaurs preferred inland, forested environments.

Preparing for Zuniceratops

Preparing for the Beasts of the Mesozoic Zuniceratops

A neoceratopsian is drawing nearer.  Everything Dinosaur will soon be receiving stock of the new Beasts of the Mesozoic ceratopsians, including the wonderful Zuniceratops figure.  This colourful creation depicts Zuniceratops christopheri, the oldest North American ceratopsian possessing prominent, well-developed brow horns, a foretaste of what was to become with the evolution of the centrosaurine and chasmosaurine lineages of horned dinosaurs.

Preparing Fact Sheets on Horned Dinosaurs

Everything Dinosaur likes to supply a free fact sheet with sales of dinosaur models.  Over the years, the company has researched and written hundreds of fact sheets.   As a result, most of the Beasts of the Mesozoic Ceratopsidae are already covered, but Zuniceratops is one of the exceptions.  Staff are currently completing their fact sheet all about this neoceratopsian from the Middle Turonian Moreno Hill Formation of west-central New Mexico.  A scale drawing of this relatively small member of the horned dinosaurs has already been commissioned.

Zuniceratops was formally named in 1998 (Douglas Wolfe and James Kirkland), in a preliminary description.  The publishing of the scientific paper coincided with the discovery of a substantial Zuniceratops bonebed that provided hundreds more fossil bones representing at least seven individuals (based on the number of lower jaws found).  The bones are disarticulated and represent a group of different sized animals, so calculating the maximum size for Zuniceratops is problematic, but most palaeontologists estimate that this horned dinosaur that lived around 90 million years ago (Turonian stage of the Late Cretaceous), measured between 2.2 and 3.3 metres in length.  As such, it was very much smaller than its descendants, the centrosaurine and chasmosaurine dinosaurs that were so diverse and numerous during the Campanian and Maastrichtian faunal stages of the Late Cretaceous.

The co-association of individuals of various sizes in the bonebed suggests that this dinosaur lived in herds, with adults and younger animals demonstrating communal behaviour.

The video provides a quick run through on how to put together the Rebor Swarm model.  It is a fantastic replica, the second in this series to be introduced in 2020, following the launch of the Broodlord (metallic variant) in January (2020).  A total of four figures are scheduled, it had been proposed to introduce one new figure each quarter, but the global COVID-19 pandemic led to some unavoidable production delays.

Rebor Figures Feature in Everything Dinosaur Newsletter

Rebor Figures Feature in Everything Dinosaur Newsletter

The new Rebor X-REX Swarm (plague variant), makes headlines in the Everything Dinosaur customer newsletter.  The arrival of this new figure has made headlines in the latest customer newsletter to be sent out by the UK-based company.  This eagerly anticipated figure from Rebor, the second in their science-fiction/dinosaur hybrid series, had been delayed in production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, this beautifully-crafted figure is now available.
