Estemmenosuchus and Edaphosaurus Models

By | May 16th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Estemmenosuchus and Edaphosaurus Models

Team members at Everything Dinosaur have posted up an image featuring two of their favourite Permian tetrapods, the sail-backed, herbivorous reptile Edaphosaurus and the “crowned crocodile” Estemmenosuchus.  Although these reptiles lived during the Permian geological period, their fossils are not found in the same rock formations and although both animals are classified as members of the Class Synapsida, they are not closely related.

CollectA 1:20 Scale Estemmenosuchus and the CollectA Edaphosaurus

Often described as dinosaurs, these two CollectA figures represent vertebrates that lived long before the first dinosaurs evolved.  As synapsids, they are actually more closely related to modern mammals than they are to the Dinosauria.  The CollectA Deluxe 1:20 scale Estemmenosuchus was introduced in 2018, whilst the CollectA Edaphosaurus came out earlier this year (2019).  They are most impressive models and are part of an initiative by CollectA to add more models and replicas of animals that existed before the dinosaurs evolved to their already extensive range of prehistoric animal figures.

The first species assigned to the genus Edaphosaurus may have originated in the Late Carboniferous.  Edaphosaurus spp. fossils are known from the southern United States and Europe (notably the Czech Republic and Germany).  In contrast, Estemmenosuchus fossil material, as far as we at Everything Dinosaur know, comes from the Perm region of Russia.  It is from this region of Russia that the geological period – the Permian was named.

The image (above), depicts two splendid CollectA figures, the company has been praised for introducing more replicas of Palaeozoic animals into its model range, but based on the current fossil record, such a meeting between these two animals never took place.  Estemmenosuchus was geographically and chronologically separated from those species assigned to the Edaphosaurus genus.

In answer to a query raised by one of Everything Dinosaur’s customers, the CollectA Deluxe Estemmenosuchus model does indeed have an articulated jaw.

JurassicCollectables Reviews the Killer Queen T. rex Models

JurassicCollectables Reviews the Killer Queen T. rex Models

JurassicCollectables has produced a video review of the two, new for 2019, Rebor Killer Queen T. rex dinosaur models.  This has been one of the most eagerly anticipated video reviews for model collectors so far this year, with a great deal of interest in these two 1:35 scale Tyrannosaurus rex figures.  Interest has been piqued for several reasons, firstly, it is great to see Rebor bringing out more dinosaur models, after all, this range has gained quite a substantial following and secondly, fans of the Jurassic Park franchise can see two T. rex figures that reflect changes in how “the tyrant lizard king” was depicted as the franchise progressed.

Classy Packaging

The video review starts with a look at the classy packaging with the models packed in a black satin box, the back of which depicts other Rebor replicas available in the range.  The unboxing part of the video highlights the protective foam packaging that each model is packed in and looks at the handy T. rex fact card that accompanies each figure.  At Everything Dinosaur, we also include a special T. rex fact sheet that is researched and written by our team members.  The seventeen minute video examines each model in detail starting with the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex “plain” colour variant.

A Close-up View of the Underside

In these cleverly constructed videos, JurassicCollectables are able to show parts of the model not depicted in the manufacturer’s studio images.  For example, the narrator describes the Rebor Killer Queen “plain” colour variant of being reminiscent to the T. rex seen in the first “Jurassic Park” movie.  When highlighting the details on the model, the narrator shows the underside of the figure and comments on the careful sculpting of the belly scales.

A Tyrannosaurus rex Model from a “Lost World”

In this highly informative video review, the narrator comments that if the “plain” colour variant is reminiscent of the T. rex from the first “Jurassic Park” film, then the colour variant “jungle” reminds him of the apex predator seen in the second instalment of the franchise “The Lost World”.

The beautiful detailed texture of the skin is praised, as is the painting around the eye and the glossy, wet-look given to the wide jaws.  Measurements are provided and the figures compared to a number of other models within the JurassicCollectables portfolio including the Papo standing T. rex figure (55001) and of course, off-colour Alan.

Everything Dinosaur Announces More PNSO Models

By | May 9th, 2019|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur Will Be Stocking Even More PNSO Models

Everything Dinosaur will be stocking more new for 2019 PNSO prehistoric animal models.  Today, the UK-based company has announced that the dinosaur diorama featuring “Dayong” the Yangchuanosaurus and “Xiaobei” the Chungkingosaurus will be in stock soon along with “Lucas” the Giganotosaurus dinosaur model.

PNSO Replicas and Figures

This is the second new PNSO product announcement made by Everything Dinosaur this week.  A few days ago, it was announced that the Amargasaurus, Spinosaurus and Mosasaurus figures were being stocked, along with a new range of intermediate models featuring a Megalodon and an Ankylosaurus.  To see this earlier announcement: Everything Dinosaur Announces more PNSO Figures Coming into Stock.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“At the start of the year, we claimed that we would be bringing into stock at least fifty new prehistoric animal models.  Once again, we have proven to be as good as our word with the addition of these two excellent PNSO figures.  Customers can now source PNSO replicas such as the new for 2019 “Ron” the Mosasaurus, “Lucio” the Amargasaurus, “Dayong” the Yangchuanosaurus and “Xiaobei” the Chungkingosaurus, as well as the Giganotosaurus “Lucas” from a supplier based in the west.”

Anatomical accuracy is very important for Everything Dinosaur, when it comes to selecting which prehistoric animal models and figures to stock.  In addition, when it comes to dinosaur dioramas featuring a pair of animals, the geological and temporal context has to be correct.  PNSO have been very careful to create beautiful and anatomically accurate figures based on the fossil evidence.  Yangchuanosaurus and Chungkingosaurus were contemporaneous so the depicting of this encounter between Theropod and armoured dinosaur is perfectly valid in our view.

Yangchuanosaurus has an unusual claim to fame, it was the first Theropod dinosaur to be named and scientifically described by four authors (Y. shangyouensis by Dong, Chang, Li and Zhou in 1978).  Yangchuanosaurus is known from several specimens including a considerable amount of cranial material.  Analysis of these fossils has revealed that it had a remarkable change in its body proportions as this dinosaur grew.  A sub-adult specimen reveals a skull some 9% shorter than its femur, but in an adult specimen, the skull is proportionately much bigger, some 15% longer than the adult femur.  As Yangchuanosaurus matured so its skull increased in size, this probably reflects the position of the adults as the dominant, apex predators within the ecosystem represented by the vertebrate fossil assemblage from the Upper Shaximiao Formation.

“Lucas” the Giganotosaurus

Whilst PNSO have tended to produce models of prehistoric animals known from Asia, it is great to see a figure of the super-sized South American predator Giganotosaurus added to their range.

A Late Cretaceous Dinosaur Diorama

By | May 5th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

A Late Cretaceous Dinosaur Diorama

Prehistoric animal model collector Robert Townsend very kindly sent some photographs into Everything Dinosaur featuring his Late Cretaceous diorama.  Robert has created for himself, his very own super-sized model prehistoric landscape, featuring authentic vegetation, artificial rocks and a dinosaur watering hole complete with dinosaur tracks and footprints.  His latest project involved creating typical prehistoric scenes reflecting the fauna of the Late Cretaceous (Campanian and Maastrichtian faunal stages), of North America.  We can expect to see a landscape dominated by duck-billed dinosaurs, ornithomimids, pachycephalosaurs with the apex predatory positions occupied by tyrannosaurids.

The Late Cretaceous Prehistoric Scene

North America in the Late Cretaceous

Using Robert’s large collection of prehistoric animal models, the majority of which have been purchased from Everything Dinosaur, he has created a series of mini dramas within his super-sized landscape and his focus has been to use prehistoric animal figures representing animals from the famous Hell Creek and the slightly older Dinosaur Provincial Park Formations of North America.  Admittedly, the addition of the Bullyland Pteranodon sternbergi model (Geosternbergia sternbergi), which is associated with the Smoky Hill Chalk Member of the Niobrara Formation (Kansas) is interesting, after all, this animal is associated with marine and not terrestrial deposits.  However, these large pterosaurs were accomplished fliers and they may have frequently flown inland, perhaps to find fresh water.

The Bullyland Pteranodon sternbergi figure has been out of production for a long time, but Everything Dinosaur was able to acquire some of these extremely rare figures.

Not All Horned Dinosaurs and Hadrosauridae

Although, North American herbivorous populations were dominated by the horned dinosaurs and the duck-billed dinosaurs, there were many other types of dinosaur resident too.  Robert has skilfully added a range of different prehistoric animals to his landscape.  For example, ornithomimids and pachycephalosaurs feature as well.

The fleet-footed ornithomimid had better watch out, a recent scientific paper which involved the analysis of the front of the jaw of a pachycephalosaur proposed that these bone-headed dinosaurs may have been partially carnivorous.  To read more about this hypothesis: Pachycephalosaurus – Was it Carnivorous?

Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops

No North American Late Cretaceous dinosaur diorama would be complete without the appearance of Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops.  Creator Robert does not disappoint, he depicts a T. rex feeding on the corpse of “three-horned face” and within the prehistoric scene the tyrannosaurid Albertosaurus can be found along with a horned dinosaur very distantly related to Triceratops – Styracosaurus.

A spokesperson for the UK-based Everything Dinosaur praised the prehistoric landscape and stated:

“We congratulate Robert for his creative use of the prehistoric animal figures and the beautiful details of the diorama.  It is always a pleasure to receive photographs of prehistoric scenes which have been choreographed by our customers.”

Rebor Killer Queen T. rex – Attaching the Tail

By | April 30th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Rebor Killer Queen T. rex – Attaching the Tail

Fans of the Rebor range of prehistoric animal replicas will know that some of the recent model introductions have had flexible tails.  The three Ankylosaurus models “War Pig” for example, along with the two colour variants of the Tyrannosaur figure “Vanilla Ice”, these figures have all been supplied with detachable, flexible tails.  Team members at Everything Dinosaur thought it might be helpful to would-be Rebor collectors if we were to shoot a short video to show how these tails attach to the models.  In addition, for those people who had not purchased one of these Rebor dinosaur models before, we could show how the figures are supplied.

How to Attach the Tail to the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex Dinosaur Model (Jungle Colour Variant)

Video Credit: Everything Dinosaur

The Tail is Supplied as a Separate Piece

In this short, thirty second video, we show how the tail is supplied as a separate piece (Rebor Killer Queen Tyrannosaurus rex models) and how it can be inserted into the back of the figure to make the model complete.  Both the Rebor Killer Queen “jungle” and “plain” variants have this feature and the tails are flexible, allowing collectors to put their T. rex into a variety of poses.  The nature of the joint into the posterior of the animal reduces the amount of vertical movement, but in the Dinosauria, generally, the tail could not move a great deal in the vertical plane.  However, the flexible rod in the tail piece permits quite a degree of lateral movement.

In an earlier blog post, we included a short video that demonstrated the flexibility of the tail in a Rebor Tyrannosaur model.  To view this post: Rebor Killer Queen T. rex Models Have Poseable Tails.

The picture (above), shows three tail pieces from three different Rebor tyrannosaurid models.  The tail piece (top) is from the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex model (plain colour variant).  The tail in the middle is from the Rebor Vanilla Ice Tyrannosaur figure (jungle colour variant) and the tail (bottom) is from the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex (jungle colour variant).

All the tails in the photograph come from 1:35 scale Rebor replicas.

The tail inserts into the posterior with a positive “click” and the separate tail piece helps Rebor to cut down on product packaging (less cardboard required as the model fits into a smaller box).

JurassicCollectables Reviews “Clover” Hatching Stegosaurus

By | April 27th, 2019|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Rebor Club Selection “Clover” Hatchling Stegosaurus Video Review

JurassicCollectables have produced a video review of the limited edition Rebor Club Selection hatching Stegosaurus “Clover”.  Only 1,000 of these beautifully crafted figures have been made and there are only a handful of these replicas in stock, but by watching this video review, collectors are able to get an idea of the quality of this figure from Rebor, even though only a few models remain.

A Baby Stegosaurus Model

Made in the spring of 2017, the hatchling Stegosaurus figure forms part of a set of limited edition figures manufactured by Rebor.  In this excellent video review from JurassicCollectables, the presenter first shows the matt finished packaging and then carefully displays the box contents before unpacking each of the items.  Rebor like to offer something a little different with this line, something that is quite quirky.  For example, in this video review a reference is made to the recently reviewed Rebor hatchling Baryonyx nicknamed “Hurricane”, that was supplied with a model of a football, to coincide with the 2018 World Cup.  The Stegosaurus figure set includes a skilfully crafted model of a four-leaf clover.  Clover (Trifolium genus), may not have been around during the Late Jurassic, but as a four-leafed clover is supposed to be lucky, then a young Stegosaurus could do with all the luck it could get growing up in the western United States with a large number of carnivorous dinosaurs in the same ecosystem, any of which would have greedily snapped up a hatchling Stegosaurus.

Viewing the Rebor Club Selection Hatching Stegosaurus

In the video, the narrator comments upon the superb details that Rebor builds into their figures.  For instance, the finely detailed body scales on the baby Stegosaurus are highlighted.  The egg with its fine lines and carefully plotted cracks adds a degree of realism to the figure.  The model is placed on a revolving turntable and this provides the viewer with the opportunity to see this highly collectable figure from a variety of viewpoints.

Measuring the Model

Towards the end of the video review, JurassicCollectables provide model measurements, always helpful information to collectors.  At Everything Dinosaur, we have measured this figure too.  We have recorded a height of 18 cm for this replica when resting on its base, the circumference of the egg is around 30 cm.  The hatching Stegosaurus with the ferns acting as a backdrop makes an excellent conversation piece, a point made several times by the video narrator.

Rebor Killer Queen T. rex Models have Poseable Tails

The new for spring 2019 Rebor Killer Queen T. rex models have poseable tails.  Everything Dinosaur demonstrates this function in a short video.  In order to showcase the beautifully engineered Rebor Killer Queen 1:35 scale Tyrannosaurus rex replicas, team members have produced a trio of videos highlighting the various articulated parts.  A few days ago, we posted up a short video from our YouTube channel that showed how to use hot air to safely free up the articulated arms on these dinosaurs.  In addition, a second video was shot which focused on the articulated lower jaw.  Today, we conclude our look at these new figures by revealing that the tail is also poseable.

Available in Two Colour Variants – “Plain” and “Jungle”

The Killer Queen Rebor replica is available in two colour variants, “plain” and “jungle”.  The “plain” version has more of a browish hue to it, whereas the “jungle” colour variant is dominated by green tones.  Both models have proved to be extremely popular amongst model fans and collectors.  So many of these figures have been sent out, that Everything Dinosaur team members still get confused for a few moments over which model is which.  For example, in this short video highlighting the moveable tail, the model is referred to as the “plain” version, actually it is the “jungle” variant.  Please be assured, all boxes are checked carefully prior to dispatch, after all, we would not want to send out the wrong coloured model to a collector.

A Stiffened Rod Carefully Built into the Tail Piece

The tail piece fits securely into the rear of the model and it is this tail piece that contains a flexible, stiff rod that enables the tail to be moved into different positions.  We commend Rebor for their creativity and for designing such a beautifully crafted T. rex figure.  The tail has quite a lot of lateral movement and some degree of movement in the vertical plane as well.  The combination of the poseable arms, the articulated lower jaw and the flexible tail permits collectors and dinosaur model fans to depict Tyrannosaurus rex in a huge variety of poses.  Furthermore, they even have two colour variants to choose from as well.
