Mythical Realms Armoured T. rex Model in Stock

By | March 16th, 2021|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

The Safari Ltd Mythical Realms armoured T. rex dinosaur model is now in stock at Everything Dinosaur. This is the third of five new dinosaur models to be introduced by Safari Ltd this year (2021), an armoured Triceratops and a model of the theropod Baryonyx have already arrived at Everything Dinosaur.

Mythical Realms T. rex dinosaur model.
Safari Ltd have extended their Mythical Realms line by adding an armoured T. rex dinosaur model to this range. This model has an articulated lower jaw.

An Armoured Carnivorous Dinosaur

This cleverly designed dinosaur has armour on the top of its head. The tyrannosaur sports a breast plate, armour on its shoulders and protecting its ribs. There are three large plates of armour over the thigh and additional protection running down to the foot. The tail has a vicious-looking spiky club. A most impressive weapon one that would make an Ankylosaurus jealous.

Model Measurements

The Safari Ltd Mythical Realms armoured T. rex dinosaur model measures approximately 17 cm in length. In reality the model is bigger than this, as the tail is curved round on itself. That armoured head is around 11 cm off the ground.

William Reviews the Eofauna Triceratops Models

By | March 14th, 2021|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Our thanks to dinosaur fan and model collector William who sent into Everything Dinosaur a review of the latest Eofauna models, the Triceratops dinosaur models “Cryptic” and “Dominant”.

Eofauna Scientific Research Triceratops dinosaur models.
The Eofauna Scientific Research 1:35 scale Triceratops models do battle (Cryptic and Dominant).

William’s Review

Eofauna’s first two releases of 2021 are of the spectacular Triceratops “Yoshi’s Trike” after it’s discoverer Yoshi Katsura. Unearthed in 2010 now housed within the Museum of the Rockies.

Yoshi’s Trike” (MOR 3027), is a very large Triceratops specimen with nearly four foot long horn cores. Yoshi belongs  to yet an undescribed  Triceratops species “Ugrosaurus olsoni “, older than either Triceratops horridus or Triceratops prorsus but sharing intermediate characteristics of both*.

In life “Yoshi” was 3 metres at the hip and weighed 9.5 tonnes. It’s these little touches that makes Eofauna so beloved of collectors of accurate figures.

Dominant (Brown) and the Variant Cryptic (Blue)

Both come in polybags with horn protectors with Eofauna stats cards with the same beautiful artwork.

Length: 9.1/4 inches.

Height: 3.1/2 inches.

Scale: 1/35.

Both figures stand rock solid, no toppling issues etc.

A superb, compact modern body recreation of an active true life Triceratops. Both figures are sculpted with open mouths with exact detailing such as teeth and the openings to the nasal passages and the tongues are correctly held within the mouth. With the classical ceratopsian beaks.

Both “Yoshi’s” are posed in a sparring stance as though a younger bull is testing the herd’s old bull for any weaknesses. Never will you see such a pair of Trikes adorned with such an impressive a set of horns perfectly sculpted and in life a true terror for all the local tyrannosaurs and to tangle with 4 metres of keratin covered doom would be for the fool hardy or a veteran rex.

The nasal horns are as equally good on the money a shorter back profile with a longer forward facing straight profile. Nostrils are spot on with a double ridge of skin and now on towards the body’s dermal areas.

From the nostrils a ripple of skin processes radiating outwards in a more scaled mosaic pattern from the lower jaw to the tails end and sturdy powerful legs with fully detailed toes with correct toe numbers on each.

A triple fold of skin highlights a beautifully intelligent eye no old time slow moving rhino analogue here.

A more expertly detailed entire body you shall run your hand over from folds of skin on the entire body to variation of the scaling every detail pinpointed on these two figures.

The neck frill has the same texturing of scales with the leading edge enforced with keratin frill bosses.

Looking at the Colour Variations

DOMINANT:

Nasal horn and upper/ lower tips are of a rich dark chocolate.

Main horns, eye folds and side panels of the mouth are of a dark caramel cream with horn tips black.

Neck frill and horn bosses are the same chocolate as the beak.

The inside of the mouth is a rich dark pink with a dark wash and white teeth top/bottom.

Carefully placed is the dark orange pattern  placed at the leading edges of the neck frill.

A dark orange eye with a black pupil.

From lower throat downwards of the backs of front limbs and insides of the hind legs and under belly to the lower part of the tail all painted in dark brown broken up at the front with a rich dark ginger.

This same rich ginger covers the majority of upper torso and tail – excellent choice.

All toenails painted in a natural horn colour.

CRYPTIC:

Nasal horn and upper/lower tips are of a  rich grey.

Main upper head and eye folds and side are of a dark chocolate with a dark yellow nasal panel with a wash over it.

Horns are of a dark grey fading into a caramel beige at the tips.

The neck frill’s base colour is a dark ginger with turquoise blue admixed through out, the frill bosses are dark brown.

The inside of the mouth is a rich dark pink with a dark wash and white teeth top/bottom.

The lower part of the jaw and throat and underbelly and tail are of a beige-cream with some dark chocolate stripes below the eyes and upper part of the lower jaw again a dark wash has been applied.

A vibrant orange eye with a black pupil.

From the shoulders to the middle of the back and then continuing onwards to the very tip of the tail a very rich brown covers this entire dermal area.

The flanks of the side are of a light ginger/tan.

All four legs are of a pale blue with a greyish dark wash applied, very eye catching this is more of an alpha male in all aspects.

All toenails painted in a natural dark horn colour.

At this moment I wish to thank Sue and Mike and their entire team at Everything Dinosaur HQ.

We your customers/friends wish to thank you all for being the company we all respect.

Thank you for being our friends and thank you for being EVERYTHING DINOSAUR.

Team members at Everything Dinosaur thanked William for sending in his review. One point to make about the temporal range of this, as yet to be described Triceratops species,* – the fossils associated with this transitional form have been found in strata older than T. prorsus but younger than Triceratops horridus.

Thank you to William for sending into Everything Dinosaur this review.

William added:

“All Eofauna’s figures are available here from our good friends at EVERYTHING DINOSAUR.”

A Fan of “Huxley’s near bird” – Anchiornis

By | March 10th, 2021|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Photos/Pictures of Fossils|0 Comments

Our thanks to Cooper, a dinosaur fan who commented on one of our blog posts highlighting one of his favourite dinosaurs, the diminutive Anchiornis (A. huxleyi), the scientific name translating as “Huxley’s near bird”.

Controversial Taxonomy

Many palaeontologists believe that this small dinosaur known from Upper Jurassic deposits associated with the Tiaojishan Formation of Liaoning (north-eastern China), is a basal member of the Paraves clade, a part of the Maniraptora that incorporates the dromaeosaurids, the troodontids and the avialans, those dinosaurs that lead directly to the evolution of modern birds. The exact taxonomic position of this dinosaur remains controversial.

A Fan of Anchiornis

Cooper produced a near perfect copy of one of Everything Dinosaur’s numerous articles on Anchiornis huxleyi. The many fossil specimens associated with this species has led to several different types of scientific research paper being published about Anchiornis, focusing on ontogeny, phylogeny and behavioural aspects of this little theropod.

Everything Dinosaur has written a number of blog posts (at least fourteen), about Anchiornis with our first article being published in 2009.

PNSO Luffy the Anchiornis Dinosaur Model
The PNSO “Luffy” the Anchiornis dinosaur model from the “Age of Dinosaurs” model range. PNSO introduced a series of prehistoric animal models, many of which were based on Chinese fossil discoveries.

A spokesperson for the UK-based specialist mail order company stated:

“Our thanks to Cooper for reaching out to us. We deal with hundreds of enquires every week and we do our best to respond to all those that require a reply. We are glad that Cooper found our work on Anchiornis huxleyi so thought-provoking and informative.”

Anchiornis huxleyi

Named and described shortly before Everything Dinosaur published its first blog post about this dinosaur, the species name honours Thomas Henry Huxley, an early champion of Darwin’s theory of evolution.

The Chinese company PNSO is one of the few mainstream model makers to have made an Anchiornis figure. “Luffy” the Anchiornis (pictured above), is one of a series of 48 models featured in the “Age of Dinosaurs – Toys that Accompany your Growth” model range. It also features in the huge PNSO Age of Dinosaurs box set.

PNSO Domingo the Carnotaurus Dinosaur Model

By | March 9th, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases, Product Reviews|0 Comments

The PNSO Domingo the Carnotaurus dinosaur model has already attracted rave reviews from collectors and fans of dinosaur models. This 5-star rated figure has been described as “a beautiful model, at this moment the most accurate depiction of Carnotaurus” and “an amazing model, both colour and sculpt are stunning” by reviewers on Everything Dinosaur’s website.

The PNSO Carnotaurus model stands perfectly stable without the use of the transparent stand which is supplied with the figure. However, Everything Dinosaur recommends that the support stand is used when the model is put on display.

Carnotaurus sastrei

This replica of a Late Cretaceous South American abelisaurid has certainly turned heads. The model is exquisitely detailed and so well made that the figure stands perfectly on a flat, level service without the aid of the transparent support stand that is supplied with this dinosaur model.

An Articulated Lower Jaw

Like a lot of the new theropod figures from PNSO, Domingo the Carnotaurus has an articulated lower jaw. The model designers have been careful to depict those famous horns over the eyes (from which this dinosaur’s name is derived, due to their superficial similarity to the horns of a bull). The colouration chosen shows evidence of countershading and the use of black stripes gives this figure real presence. Although the jaw of Carnotaurus is relatively small and delicate, the designers have taken heed of the fossil evidence and equipped their model with a narrow jaw, located in a disproportionately deep skull.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Fans of dinosaur models and figure collectors have really been looking forward to the arrival of the PNSO Domingo the Carnotaurus replica. It had a lot of hyperbole to live up with some collectors stating that PNSO was the most improved model manufacturer on the market. With the first reviews for this new for 2021 figure posted up on our website, it seems that collectors have not been disappointed.”

As we are preparing for the arrival of the latest batch of new for 2021 PNSO prehistoric animal models team members at Everything Dinosaur have been busy completing their Pinacosaurus fact sheet that will be sent out with sales of this armoured dinosaur model.

Bart the PNSO Pinacosaurus Dinosaur Model

The new for 2021 PNSO Bart the Pinacosaurus dinosaur model (lateral view). This model is expected in stock at Everything Dinosaur on March 8th, 2021.

PNSO Pinacosaurus grangeri

Pronounced “pin-ack-oh-sore-us”, this Late Cretaceous armoured dinosaur is one of the best known of all the members of the Ankylosauridae family. Measuring up to five metres in length, this herbivorous, armoured dinosaur is known from numerous specimens representing juveniles and adult animals.

What Other PNSO Figures are Due in Stock?

About a dozen or so PNSO prehistoric animal figures are due to arrive at Everything Dinosaur’s new warehouse on Monday (8th March 2021). Team members are not quite sure when the figures will arrive but they are all on standby to help get them unloaded and on-line as quickly as possible.

All eight of the new for 2021 dinosaur models should be on this shipment plus some of the earlier models that were available at the factory when the container was being made ready for sending to the docks.

PNSO Age of Dinosaurs (Prehistoric Animal Figures)

PNSO have rapidly built an excellent reputation for their dinosaur and prehistoric animal models. Everything Dinosaur has worked with this Chinese company for many years and a spokesperson from the UK-based specialist mail order company stated:

“We are expecting A-Shu the Qianzhousaurus, Perez the Machairoceratops, along with the other new horned dinosaur figure A-Qi the Sinoceratops, plus Domingo the Carnotaurus and the new Wilson T. rex figure. In addition, the three new armoured dinosaurs Isaac the Sauropelta, Rosana the Miragaia and of course Bart the Pinacosaurus.”

However, given all the current difficulties with global logistics at the moment, team members will be thoroughly checking over the shipment prior to putting these models on-line.

The spokesperson added:

“There are so many problems with shipping goods at the moment. For example, this container was held at the UK port for several days simply because of the amount of congestion at the dockside. The inspection by UK Customs and Trading Standards did not hold up the shipment for too long, but we know that a number of the cartons will have been opened as part of the checking process so we will be spending time once the delivery has arrived in sorting out the boxes before these models can be put into our on-line shop.”

Pre-order Rebor Carnotaurus and Rebor Ekrixinatosaurus

The Rebor Ekrixinatosaurus “Epitaph” museum class dinosaur model and the Rebor Carnotaurus rex “Crimson King Requiem” plain variant museum class replica are available to pre-order from Everything Dinosaur.  Two fantastic models of Late Cretaceous, South American abelisaurid dinosaurs are available for pre-order.  Both figures are in approximately 1/35th scale and each wonderful replica measures around forty-one centimetres in length.

A Requiem for the “Crimson King”

When Everything Dinosaur announced that the original Rebor Carnotaurus model had been withdrawn and was out of production, we promised all those fans of the Rebor range who had joined our waitlist for this replica that we would contact them and offer them an alternative.  This is the figure we had in mind, a magnificent 1:35 scale model of Carnotaurus with such a striking, vibrant colour scheme.  This figure is viewed by Rebor as a replacement for the original Rebor Carnotaurus, hence the name “Crimson King Requiem”.

Rebor Ekrixinatosaurus “Epitaph” Museum Class Dinosaur Model

The second abelisaurid from Rebor that we have made available for pre-order is the Rebor Ekrixinatosaurus “Epitaph” museum class dinosaur model.  It is ironic that these two figures are available to pre-order today, as March 1st is Saint David’s Day.  Saint David is the patron saint of Wales and the dragon is one of the national symbols of this country.

Named and formally described in 2004, the fossilised remains of Ekrixinatosaurus helped palaeontologists to better understand the enigmatic Abelisauridae.  Ekrixinatosaurus (pronounced Ek-riks-in-at-oh-sore-us), is estimated to have measured around 6.5 to perhaps 7.5 metres in length.  It was approximately the same size as Carnotaurus sastrei, hence the models are both in 1/35 th scale and the same size.

Caldey’s Zuniceratops

By | February 28th, 2021|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Drawings, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page|0 Comments

Caldey’s Zuniceratops Illustration

Our thanks to budding palaeo-artist Caldey who sent into Everything Dinosaur her illustration of the Beasts of the Mesozoic Zuniceratops figure and what a splendid illustration it is!  We have received numerous horned dinosaur drawings from Caldey in recent months, we can now add her Zuniceratops christopheri artwork to our collection.

Caldey’s Illustration of Zuniceratops christopheri

Zuniceratops christopheri by Caldey

A beautiful illustration of the Late Cretaceous horned dinosaur Zuniceratops (Z. christopheri) by Caldey.  Previously, Caldey has dispatched to Everything Dinosaur drawings of Diabloceratops, Medusaceratops, Triceratops and other horned dinosaurs.

Picture Credit: Caldey

The colourful and enigmatic Zuniceratops with its vivid facial markings and flashes of blue is cleverly contrasted with the monochrome foreground and vegetation that Caldey has incorporated into her drawing.  A tuft of bristle-like hairs on the rump of this dinosaur has also been added.  Although there is no fossil evidence to indicate whether Zuniceratops possessed such a feature, it is known in other members of the Ceratopsia, such as Psittacosaurus, a dinosaur that Caldey has also illustrated.

Zuniceratops is regarded as a transitional form of horned dinosaur.  It roamed what was to become New Mexico around ninety million years ago and its fossil remains show a mix of primitive and more derived anatomical traits, so why not give it bristles too?

Caldey’s Illustration of Psittacosaurus

A drrawing of Psittacosaurus.

Caldey’s illustration of the early member of the Ceratopsia – Psittacosaurus.  There is evidence to suggest that this small, plant-eating dinosaur had a fan of bristle-like structures at the base of its tail.  Palaeontologists remain uncertain as to their function.

The artist has carefully picked out and highlighted the individual scales on the Zuniceratops.  This is particularly evident on the head, where even the tiny jugal (cheek horn) has been illustrated.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“It is always a pleasure to receive artwork and we do get lots of pictures sent into us.  We do look at them all and we are really grateful for all that we receive.  Our congratulations to Caldey for her splendid drawing of Zuniceratops.”

New for 2021 Safari Ltd Models in Stock

New for 2021 Safari Ltd Models in Stock

The first of the new for 2021 Safari Ltd prehistoric animal models are in stock at Everything Dinosaur.  The Wild Safari Prehistoric World Baryonyx and the Mythical Realms armoured Triceratops have arrived at our warehouse.  These figures were due in March, but we were able to get these two models a little earlier than scheduled.  Safari Ltd will introduce a total of five new models this year, three dinosaurs and two armoured dinosaurs in the Mythical Realms series.

The Daspletosaurus, quadrupedal Spinosaurus and the armoured Tyrannosaurus rex in the Mythical Realm series are due to arrive in April, but as with the armoured Triceratops and the Baryonyx models, Everything Dinosaur team members will try and get these a little ahead of schedule if possible.

Putting armour on dinosaurs is an intriguing idea. It permits Safari Ltd to extend their range of models in their Mythical Realms series which incorporates strange animals from legend and folklore such as werewolves, dragons, mermaids and the Yeti.  The armoured Triceratops figure reminds us of the sort of dinosaur associated with the fantasy world Dinotopia created by artist and author James Gurney, who wrote a series of books about an island populated by people and dinosaurs.

This brings a whole new meaning to the term “armoured dinosaur”.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“There are huge problems with global logistics at the moment.  The global coronavirus pandemic has left worldwide shipping in chaos.  There are extensive delays when it comes to the moving of goods around the world, the recent Chinese holidays associated with the Chinese Spring Festival otherwise known as the New Year Festival have added to the difficulties.  However, we had anticipated these problems and put contingencies in place which allowed us to bring in these two new for 2021 Safari Ltd figures slightly earlier than scheduled.”

Selecting a Rebor T. rex for a Customer

By | February 24th, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Recently we were contacted by a collector in Russia who wanted to add to his Rebor figure collection by acquiring a Rebor GrabNGo T. rex dinosaur model.

The Rebor GrabNGo range was launched in 2019 with the introduction of the amazing Komodo dragon replica, a stunning half metre long model of the largest living lizard in the world. Our Russian customer wanted one of the Tyrannosaurus rex figures that were introduced into this range last year, specifically the Rebor GrabNGo T. rex dinosaur model – type A.

The Rebor GrabNGo T. rex (Type A)
The Rebor GrabNGo T. rex Type A dinosaur model. Two colour versions of this model were introduced, both are likely to be retired and replaced with new versions in the near future.

Choosing the Model

Our customer asked whether we could help him by taking photographs of the model before he made his purchase on-line. Our dedicated team members were happy to do this. We would pick out a Tyrannosaurus rex model for him, photograph it and set it aside on our reserve shelf in our warehouse. The customer could then place his order and we would than marry up his order with the model reserved for him and send it out.

The customer wanted a Rebor GrabNGo T. rex replica (type A), but one with lots of detail on the head and tight seams between the head and the rest of the body. We carefully chose a model from our extensive inventory, photographed it and emailed the images for the customer’s approval.

Customer Approved

Team members sent plenty of photographs so that the client could get a good look at the figures and select the one they liked the best. We used our studio to take lots of detailed pictures of the head and the front of the body to assist our customer in their selection.

“It [the Rebor GrabNGo T. rex model] suits me and I am ready to place an order. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Thank you very much. I am very grateful to you for your help and as promised I will leave all the stars and positive feedback.”

We were happy to help out.

W-Dragon Spinosaurus Dinosaur Model

Everything Dinosaur have commissioned a limited production run of the fantastic W-Dragon Spinosaurus dinosaur model.  This brilliant 1:35 scale Jurassic Park III replica comes complete with a display base.  It’s a very rare figure and it has just arrived in stock!  For dinosaur model collectors and fans of the W-Dragon range here is your chance to grab a piece of dinosaur model making history.

A Spectacular Figure

Measuring around 43 centimetres in length and with that beautifully painted sail some 22 centimetres off the ground, this is a spectacular dinosaur figure.  The model is surprisingly heavy.  It is made from a combination of PVC and resin, the resin component is concentrated in the legs and the centre of the body providing stability and ensuring that the legs on this stunning theropod do not warp over time.  The figure is so stable that it can balance without the need for its display base.

The combination of PVC and resin permits this dinosaur model to be extremely stable.  The W-Dragon Spinosaurus can stand without the need to place it on its display base.

Fantastic Details

The figure has been skilfully crafted.  Individual scales can be seen and the skin texture with its folds and creases is exceptional.   The colour scheme is superb and we appreciate the attention to detail such as the clear indication of an ear opening and the carefully painted green eyes.  Even the different sized teeth and their position in the jaw have been carefully replicated to provide an accurate representation of the dentition associated with the upper and lower jaws as found in the fossil record.

This is a most impressive Spinosaurus model.  Only a limited number have been made.  Everything Dinosaur commissioned a special production run of this highly collectable figure and with W-Dragon now focusing on their contract with Universal Studios it is unlikely that more Spinosaurus figures will be made for some considerable time.

A Most Impressive Addition to Any Dinosaur Model Collection
