A Video Review of the Schleich Carnotaurus Dinosaur Model
Those talented and clever people at JurassicCollectables have produced another dinosaur model video review. This time it is the Schleich “Conquering the Earth” Carnotaurus figure from 2017 that is given the star treatment. This figure was introduced by Schleich last year, but interest in Carnotaurus has certainly been piqued after its appearance in the recent “Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom” movie trailer. Whilst the tyrannosaurids rose to prominence in the northern hemisphere during the Late Cretaceous, in the south, as the super-continent Gondwana continued to break apart, it was the bizarre abelisaurids, such as Carnotaurus, that took on the role of apex predators.
In this short video (duration a little under eight minutes), a Schleich Carnotaurus dinosaur model is unwrapped and put on the display turntable. The narrator discusses the model and highlights some of the features, including how it reminds him of another Carnotaurus figures that came out as merchandise from earlier “Jurassic Park/Jurassic World” dinosaur movies.

The video review gives model collectors the opportunity to see this very unique dinosaur model up close. The model has a very distinctive skull, a point emphasised in the video. The narrator comments on the simple but effective colour scheme and praises the wet, glossy look of the eye that helps to animate this figure. The rows of neck plates and other osteoderms are mentioned, although, the spokesperson for JurassicCollectables does not comment on the distinct overbite depicted on this short-skulled dinosaur.

A Tactile Dinosaur Model (Schleich Carnotaurus)
Schleich are building a reputation for the tactile quality of their dinosaur models. The narrator in the video alludes to the “feel” of the model, the different sized scales and their texture lends a kinaesthetic quality to this dinosaur, a point picked up by numerous teaching assistants and learning support advisers in schools who are using Schleich dinosaur models to assist with sensory play and kinaesthetic themed learning.
