A Guide to the New CollectA Models (Part 5)

Yesterday, Everything Dinosaur in collaboration with CollectA, announced the final five prehistoric animal models to be introduced by CollectA next year (2020).  These figures include three invertebrates (two cephalopods and an arthropod), plus a bizarre pterosaur, one of the strangest of all the flying reptiles and a new colour variant of the popular rearing Diplodocus replica.

As with previous CollectA releases, we have produced a short video in which we discuss these five models in a little more detail.

A Quick Video Guide to the New CollectA Prehistoric Animal Models (Fifth and Final Part)

CollectA Deluxe (Supreme) Caviramus Model in 1:2 Scale

The Pterosauria were the first vertebrates to master powered flight.  These flying reptiles which have no close living relatives, were very strange animals, perhaps the most bizarre of all were the “campylognathoidids” – pronounced cam-pea-low-gnath-oi-dids, which are known from Upper Triassic and Lower Jurassic strata.  Several genera have been assigned including Caviramus, but scientists are not sure where these types of pterosaurs fit into the Pterosauria family tree and indeed, how the genera within the Campylognathoididae family (also referred to as the Raeticodactylidae), are related to each other remains uncertain.  All the fossil material known comes from northern Europe with one species described from Greenland.  These were the first pterosaurs to demonstrate head crests as depicted on the CollectA Deluxe Supreme figure.

CollectA Have Four Pterosaurs in the CollectA Deluxe (Supreme) Model Range

Caviramus  (also referred to as Raeticodactylus), comes from Switzerland.  It had large eyes, a curved lower jaw, that is reminiscent of these types of pterosaurs (the name campylognathoidid – is from the Latin for curved jaw), proportionately long legs and slender wings.  Caviramus, with a wingspan of around 1.35 metres, is one of the largest representatives of this bizarre group.  The CollectA Deluxe Caviramus model measures around 32 cm long, it is referred to as a 1:2 scale model.  The narrow jaw with its deep keel at the front, was lined by an assortment of teeth of several different shapes and sizes.  What Caviramus ate remains a mystery but studies of the skull and jaws suggest that for such a small animal, it had a very powerful bite.  Fittingly, this new for 2020 CollectA model will have an articulated lower jaw.

Amazing Arthropods and Cool Cephalopods

In line with CollectA’s policy of introducing more creatures from the Palaeozoic, a superb replica of a trilobite has been added to the range.  Redlichia rex was only formally named and described earlier this year and it is the largest species of trilobite known from Australia to date.  To read more about the Cambrian predator Redlichia rex:  “King” of the Trilobites Discovered in Australia.

Two cool representatives of the Cephalopoda are also due out in the middle of 2020.  Both are nektonic and predatory, but they herald from very different parts of the extensive cephalopod timeline.  Nautilus pompilius can be traced back to the Pleistocene Epoch, whereas, the much larger and far more ancient Orthoceras is associated with the Ordovician-aged Baltic Sea limestones of Sweden.  All three of these beautifully sculpted replicas will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur by mid 2020.

CollectA Diplodocus – Grey

The final figure to be announced was the new rearing Diplodocus grey colour variant, which is due to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur early next year.  At this time, Everything Dinosaur team members are not sure whether this figure will replace the original rearing Diplodocus model that came out in 2013.  Naturally, if we receive information about model retirements from the CollectA ranges we will post this information up onto this blog and our other social media platforms.

For the time being, Everything Dinosaur still has stocks of the original CollectA rearing Diplodocus model: CollectA Prehistoric Life Models.

In summary, CollectA will introduce a total of eighteen new prehistoric animal models in 2020. Some of these figures will be available in early 2020, the rest should be in stock by the middle of the year.

Important News – Limited Edition Papo Spinosaurus

By | November 25th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|2 Comments

Important News – Limited Edition Papo Spinosaurus

The limited edition Papo Spinosaurus dinosaur model is one of the most eagerly anticipated dinosaur models for years.  Collectors and dinosaur model fans do not have much longer to wait as Everything Dinosaur expects to have this exciting, limited edition model in stock by around December 10th or thereabouts.

The Limited Edition Papo Spinosaurus Dinosaur Model

The box that this 42 cm long model comes in is huge!  This box is far too large to be sent by airmail, signed or tracked and signed conventional international mail services.  So, to help Everything Dinosaur’s customers overseas we are offering TWO purchase options:

  1. Buy the model in its special edition gift box (fine for UK-based customers, but for customers overseas this would mean expensive postage).
  2. Buy the model without the box, sending the model without the big, cumbersome box drastically reduces postage charges for our customers.

All is explained in this short, five minute video:

Papo Spinosaurus Purchase Options

Two Purchase Options

At Everything Dinosaur, we appreciate this postage dilemma, so team members are prepared to unpack the model for those customers who what to purchase it without the box.  The model can then be sent out at a much reduced postage cost.  It can be despatched by airmail and other postal services, such as the tracked and signed option (which we would recommend for this limited edition figure).  The model, although large, (that beautiful sail on the back stands some nineteen centimetres off the ground at its highest point), can be sent out on its own without the packaging using conventional international mail with Everything Dinosaur.  If the model is taken out of its box and despatched, the overseas postage costs are very much reduced.

Summarising the Purchase Options Available at Everything Dinosaur

Papo Spinosaurus purchase options.

Papo Spinosaurus – two purchase options.  Option 1 purchase the model in the box, or option 2 purchase the model without the box.

If the model is sent without the presentation box, it will be packed by Everything Dinosaur to ensure that the figure is protected and it will not have a product tag, this boxed model has no product tag associated with it.

With the mail services getting increasingly busy as we head towards the 25th December, customers can even message Everything Dinosaur when placing an order and let them know to delay sending out their parcel in order to avoid the risk of their purchase getting mislaid by the mail network in the Christmas rush.

Ensuring all the Cardboard and Plastic in the Presentation Box is Recycled

Everything Dinosaur is currently working towards 100% recycling of all wastepaper and cardboard at the company.  This is a key component of our environmental policy.  There is a lot of cardboard and plastic packaging associated with the Papo Spinosaurus presentation box.  Customers can be assured that we have put in place plans to ensure that all the cardboard and plastic from any boxes that have had the model removed will be recycled.  We have had to commission a special box to accommodate all those customers who want to purchase the model within its presentation box (we show this new packaging in the video), as part of our environmental policy we have sourced this box from a supplier that has used 70% recycled cardboard in its construction.  Only the facia elements are not made from recycled card, these in turn, have been produced from wood pulp from sustainable forests.

A Short Video Highlighting New for 2020 CollectA Models (Part 4)

Yesterday, Everything Dinosaur in collaboration with our chums at CollectA, revealed the latest collection of prehistoric animal models for 2020*.  Naturally, we put up a blog post providing a little more information about each replica, specifically the new hunting Mapusaurus dinosaur model, the Pleuroceras ammonite, the belemnite and the beautiful horseshoe crab model.  Team members are committed to helping to inform and educate our customers, so in this spirit, we have produced a short video providing a little more information about each of these exciting new figures.

A Quick Video Guide to the New CollectA Prehistoric Animal Models (Part 4)

CollectA Age of Dinosaurs – Popular Size Hunting Mapusaurus

The first model to be featured in this short video (it lasts a little over five minutes in length), is the only dinosaur figure announced in this batch, a replica of a hunting Mapusaurus.  CollectA originally introduced a model of this giant, South American member of the Carcharodontosauridae (Giganotosaurini tribe), back in 2012.  This model was subsequently modified and a base added. Already represented in the CollectA Deluxe range (a 1:40 scale Mapusaurus was added in 2018), the new hunting Mapusaurus model, which measures a fraction under 23.5 cm long, will be available from Everything Dinosaur in the middle of 2020.

CollectA Ammonite (Pleuroceras) and the CollectA Belemnite Model

Fossil collectors have two new models for 2020 to get particularly excited about.  CollectA will be adding an ammonite model and a belemnite to their Age of Dinosaurs range.  These two superb cephalopods help to demonstrate what the actual living animal looked like.

New for 2020 the CollectA Ammonite and Belemnite Models

CollectA Horseshoe Crab Model

The fourth replica that we discuss in our short video is the horseshoe crab replica.  Everything Dinosaur will be stocking this fifteen centimetre long model of an ancient arthropod, often described as a “living fossil”.   Horseshoe crabs are fascinating creatures, despite their name they are not closely related to crabs, as members of the Arthropoda phylum they are more closely related to spiders and the extinct sea scorpions (eurypterids).  All four living species are vulnerable to extinction due to loss of habitat, overfishing (they are caught and used as bait) and from the harvest of their blue-coloured blood which has medical applications.  It is great to see a horseshoe crab model added to the CollectA range.

Eofauna Scientific Research Atlasaurus Dinosaur Model

By | November 21st, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Eofauna Atlasaurus Features in Everything Dinosaur Video

Everything Dinosaur team members have been asked to post up some more images of the eagerly anticipated Eofauna Scientific Research Atlasaurus dinosaur model.  This exquisite figure is the second dinosaur model to have been introduced by Eofauna, it follows the Giganotosaurus figure that came out earlier this year (January 2019).  We have posted up more pictures of this 1:40 scale replica, which is now in stock, both on this blog site and on our other social media platforms such as Pinterest and Facebook.  However, we also shot a short video so that viewers could appreciate the size of the model and see the Atlasaurus data card and our fact sheet that accompanies sales.

Getting to Grips with the Eofauna Scientific Research Atlasaurus Dinosaur Model

The video is just under two and a quarter minutes in length, it is not really a review of the figure but we do highlight the paint scheme, discuss the anatomy of this bizarre sauropod and comment upon the beautiful, subtle osteoderms embedded in the back and the base of the tail.  We also show the data card (as promised) and highlight the Atlasaurus fact sheet that we send out to our customers with their purchases.

Lighting Conditions Affect the Appearance of Replicas

An important point to note is that the lighting conditions under which a model is photographed or filmed will affect the way the model appears.  Our film studio has no source of natural light, so if possible, we try and take some photographs of the model outside so that our customers can view the figure in natural light.

Even so, a photograph taken just minutes apart can provide an image that provides a different impression of the colouration of the model.  For example, take a look at the picture (top) and contrast it with this view of the Atlasaurus model just a few moments later (below).

Surprise Unboxing – Everything Dinosaur

By | November 18th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Animal News Stories, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Surprise Unboxing – Everything Dinosaur

With the advent of the new Rebor GrabNGo range, team members at Everything Dinosaur thought it would be appropriate to send out some Komodo dragon models, the first model to be introduced into this range, to customers so that they could see for themselves the attention to detail and quality of manufacture.

Several unboxing videos and reviews are in the process of being posted up on social media, so today we thought we would feature one such unboxing video from the “Plastic Prehistorica” YouTube channel.

Plastic Prehistorica – Surprise Unboxing Everything Dinosaur

The video itself lasts for a little under six and half minutes and it documents the unboxing of the new Rebor 1:6 scale GrabNGo Komodo dragon model.

Commissioning Cardboard

The narrator points out the Everything Dinosaur had to commission special cardboard packaging to accommodate this new figure.  The model measures nearly half a metre in length, so we worked with our packaging suppliers to create a bespoke box, one that was double-walled so that this beautiful varanid could be protected in transit.  After all, we don’t want our customers receiving a Komodo dragon that has been damaged in the post.  We do all we can to ensure that our customers receive parcels that are well packed and that the figures inside have plenty of protection.

As part of our environmental policy, all the cardboard boxes that we commission are made from 60-70% recycled material.  Only the outer face of our cardboard boxes is made from new wood pulp, this in turn is sourced from sustainable managed forests.  In the unboxing video, the narrator highlights the point that producing models of endangered animals helps to raise awareness about their plight.  Everything Dinosaur has ensured that the current conservation status of the Komodo dragon has been highlighted in the company’s promotional materials.  On the subject of materials, Everything Dinosaur is currently working towards 100% recycling of all waste paper and cardboard at the company.

A Megalania Model

In this informative video, the narrator comments that this figure could also represent Megalania, a giant, extinct varanid known from the Pleistocene of southern Australia.  The actual size of Megalania is disputed, however, size estimates based on fossilised vertebrae suggest a length of between five and seven metres for this lizard.  If this is the case, then the Rebor replica would represent a 1:12 scale model or thereabouts of Megalania.

A Quick Guide to the New CollectA Models (Part 3)

New CollectA Models for 2020 (Part 3)

Yesterday, Everything Dinosaur published details of three more, new for 2020 CollectA prehistoric animal models.  As part of our on-going commitment to help educate and inform our customers about new figures and replicas, we have also produced a short video that provides more details on these three models (Megalodon shark, Allosaurus and the huge dicynodont Lisowicia bojani).  In this short video, it lasts a fraction under four and half minutes, we show the three new figures and provide some background as to how these new additions have come about.

New for 2020 CollectA Prehistoric Animal Models (Part 3)

CollectA Megalodon (1:40 Scale)

The first model to be discussed is the CollectA Megalodon shark model, a replica based on the extinct, marine predator C. megalodon.  Fans of the CollectA range and model collectors have been requesting a Megalodon figure for some time.  Always, willing to listen to knowledgeable collectors, CollectA intend to make the new Megalodon model available by the middle of 2020 or thereabouts.  This shark replica has been introduced instead of a large mammal figure in the CollectA “other prehistoric animals” collection.

CollectA Allosaurus – Popular Size

The second model discussed in Everything Dinosaur’s video review is the new for 2020 Allosaurus model in “The Age of Dinosaurs – Popular” range.  It will replace the original Allosaurus replica that was introduced by this company some ten years ago.

Fans of the CollectA range can therefore conclude that the earlier Allosaurus replica will be retired in 2020.  It may appear in the CollectA catalogue but no further production of this figure can be expected and therefore it will become increasingly difficult to find.  Everything Dinosaur still has stocks of this model.

To view the Allosaurus and the rest of the CollectA Prehistoric Life model range: CollectA Prehistoric Life Models.

CollectA Lisowicia bojani

The last model to be featured in our short video is the giant, Late Triassic dicynodont Lisowicia bojani.  It was only named and formally described about twelve months ago, so congratulations to CollectA for being so quick off the mark.  The dicynodonts have largely been ignored by model manufacturers, it is great to see CollectA opting to add such a figure to their range.  CollectA had promised to provide more models of animals from the Palaeozoic, Lisowicia might not fit the bill in that respect, but it is one of the more unusual prehistoric animals from the Norian stage of the Triassic to have been described in recent years.  To read about Lisowicia: Newly Described Giant Dicynodont.

New CollectA Models (Part 1) – Video Guide

Yesterday, Everything Dinosaur published details of the first of the new for 2020 prehistoric animal figures from CollectA.  We have been asked by dinosaur model fans and collectors to publish more information about this exciting quartet of replicas.  As our studio, is now up and running, we thought it would be sensible to create a short video review, showing pictures of the models and providing a little more detail about each replica – sort of like putting some flesh on the bones of the dinosaurs.

Everything Dinosaur Comments on the New for 2020 CollectA Models (Part 1)

The First Four Dinosaur Models from CollectA for 2020

In this short video review (duration 4 minutes 20 seconds), we discuss the four new figures in turn.  Starting with the 1:6 scale Protoceratops dinosaur model, with its articulated lower jaw.  We then move on and introduce the Deluxe Fukuisaurus model.  Fukuisaurus is known from Honshu Island (Japan) and is one of a number of Early Cretaceous vertebrates excavated from the famous Kitadani Dinosaur Quarry, in Fukui Prefecture, after which this ornithopod is named.  Fukuisaurus (pronounced Foo-kwee-sore-us), comes from the same bonebed – “Quarry bonebed I”, as the theropod Fukuiraptor, a model of which was introduced by CollectA in 2019.

Fans of Dinosaurs From Japan will Appreciate Fukuisaurus and Fukuiraptor

Marvellous Microraptor

The third prehistoric animal to be discussed is the dromaeosaurid Microraptor.  This dinosaur model is likely to become a real collector’s piece.  It has such a dynamic pose and the narrator provides a little more detail about this 1:6 scale figure and gives the model’s measurements.

A Baryonchid – Baryonyx walkeri

The fourth model to be discussed is the CollectA Prehistoric Life Baryonyx (B. walkeri) dinosaur model.  This is the only figure in the quartet not to be given a scale by CollectA.  It has been introduced to accompany the 1:40 Deluxe Baryonyx which was released by CollectA this year (2019).  In the short video review by Everything Dinosaur, the similarities between these two CollectA figures are highlighted.

The Beautiful Artwork Associated with PNSO Models

By | October 31st, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Fantastic Box Art (PNSO Age of Dinosaurs)

At Everything Dinosaur, we spend a lot of time focusing on prehistoric animal models.  It is what you would expect from a company that specialises in the mail order sale of museum quality dinosaur figures and such like.  However, we have been most impressed with the artwork associated with the PNSO Age of Dinosaurs model range.  We have been involved with PNSO for some years now and we have watched how this company has evolved, but the standards set by renowned palaeoartist Zhao Chuang and his colleagues continue to be emphasised by the addition of some splendid examples of box art.

Take for example, the clean lines associated with the carton that contains the new for 2019 PNSO Dakosaurus model “Paulwin”.  Rather than describe the box we thought it best to create a short twenty second video showcasing how this particular prehistoric animal model is presented.

“Paulwin” the Dakosaurus

Models of prehistoric crocodiles are quite rare.   We know that this replica of “Biter lizard” has been very well received by collectors.  The box that the model comes in is very classy too.

The clean lines, the carefully printed and positioned text and the large picture of the actual model make the packaging of this PNSO figure really stand out.  Our congratulations to the design team at PNSO for taking such care and consideration.

The Dakosaurus is just one of new additions to the range of PNSO models and figures that Everything Dinosaur stocks.  More figures will be announced in the near future.  Fans of dinosaurs and PNSO models in particular can expect to hear news on this blog site soon.

Eofauna Deinotherium and News About the Eofauna Atlasaurus

By | October 17th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Eofauna Deinotherium and Eofauna Atlasaurus

There is so much to do these days at Everything Dinosaur, for example, we have received stocks of the new Deinotherium model (Eofauna Scientific Research).  So, in between informing all our customers on our priority reserve lists and getting this model on-line, we have all been very busy.  However, we have received a number of requests to put up pictures of the model and to shoot a short video.  We took photographs and these were posted up onto our various social media platforms yesterday.

As promised, we did make a brief video showing  the model…

The video, taken in our new video and photographic studio shows a brief glimpse of the model.  It allows viewers to appreciate the size, of this, the fourth replica to have been produced by Eofauna Scientific Research in their model range.

To read the article featuring the Eofauna Deinotherium replica with the studio photographs that we took: Eofauna Scientific Research Deinotherium Model is in Stock.

For the moment, we are restricted in the type of videos that we can produce.  We intend to produce much longer model reviews as well as updates about new models being developed and such like in the future.  However, for the time being this short video plus our photographs will have to be enough to whet the appetites of prehistoric animal model collectors.

What About the Eofauna Scientific Research Atlasaurus?

The Eofauna Scientific Research Atlasaurus model is coming into stock at Everything Dinosaur in the next few weeks or so.  This is the second dinosaur figure that Eofauna have created after their beautifully crafted Giganotosaurus model.

PNSO Megalodon Model – More Information

PNSO Megalodon Model – More Information

At Everything Dinosaur, we try our best to respond to all the enquiries, questions and emails that we receive from our customers.  This is no mean feat considering the thousands of customers we have all over the world, but we do try hard to answer all the queries in a timely fashion.  For example, having produced a short video featuring the large Megalodon (Carcharocles megalodon) replica from PNSO, we were asked to show more details of this shark model.  To this end, within 24-hours, we produced another brief video showing the prehistoric shark model in greater detail.

The PNSO Large Megalodon Model – Showcasing “Patton” the Megalodon

Video Credit: Everything Dinosaur

PNSO Megalodon “Patton” Large Prehistoric Shark Model

In this short video presentation, we reaffirm the model’s size (it measures around 32 centimetres in length), we estimate the model’s scale at approximately 1:50 based on the length of Carcharocles megalodon at around 16 metres.  In addition, we highlight the “battle scarring” on the model and discuss the figure’s gloss finish.  Large predators tend to pick up a variety of injuries, we suspect Megalodon was no exception.  If it preyed on marine mammals, we expect creatures such as Obobenocetops which was contemporaneous with this prehistoric shark, not to succumb without putting up a fight.  Scars and tears in the fins would be just part of being an apex predator.

A Glossy Wet-look

In this short video, we also comment on the finish of this shark replica.  The new version of “Patton” (the large PNSO Megalodon figure), has a glossier finish than its predecessor.  The model’s seams are much less visible and the addition of a gloss provides a pleasing wet-look finish to the figure.  As the video narrator remarked, the wet-look is very appropriate given the fact that this is a model of a marine animal.
