How Would You Expand the Papo Model Range?

By | March 17th, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Fans of the Papo prehistoric animal model range “Les Dinosaures”, will know that in 2021 there will be just two new figures added to this range. Like many model manufacturers the production plans of our chums at Papo have been affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Papo are always keen to hear from model collectors, they know how enthusiastic and passionate you are about Papo, so Everything Dinosaur has created a short, ten minute video that explores how Papo could expand its prehistoric animal model range. Once we have discussed our suggestions, it’s over to you! Your chance to comment on the type of figures you want to see added to the Papo range!

Suggestions for Papo Figures

Everything Dinosaur has a close working relationship with Papo, in our short YouTube video (the video is 10 minutes long), we reveal what product options we have suggested to the French manufacturer. For example, we suggested that Papo might want to reintroduce a long retired figure such as the iconic green, standing T. rex replica.

Could Papo reintroduce their classic green, standing T. rex
Could Papo reintroduce a classic model such as the original green, standing T. rex figure (product code 55001)?

A Pteranodon Colour Variant?

In addition, Everything Dinosaur has proposed that Papo could introduce a colour variant of an existing figure such as the Papo Pteranodon or the Papo Triceratops. We note that a number of Papo fans have suggested other colour variants such as a new version of the huge Papo Brachiosaurus figure.

Could Papo introduce a Pteranodon colour variant?
Perhaps Papo could add a colour variant of the Papo Pteranodon figure. The new colour variant could be the male whilst the original figure could be the female.

A Juvenile Giganotosaurus?

One further suggestion Everything Dinosaur has made is to introduce a juvenile Giganotosaurus dinosaur model as a companion piece to the 2020 Papo Giganotosaurus figure.

The 2020 Giganotosaurus model attracted a lot of attention due to its posture, a smaller, juvenile figure could have a more scientifically accurate pose.

Everything Dinosaur suggests that Papo should introduce a juvenile Giganotosaurus model
Should Papo introduce a juvenile Giganotosaurus to accompany the adult model that was introduced in 2020?

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Papo are aware how passionate fans of their figures are when it comes to new replicas. The number of new models that can be introduced in 2021 has been limited due to the consequences of COVID-19. Our new YouTube video gives dinosaur model fans the opportunity to learn more about the Papo range and to propose novel ways in which this range can be expanded.”

Papo Product Development – Teaser

By | March 13th, 2021|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur team members have been working on another Papo inspired YouTube video and they hope to have it completed, edited and posted up on the company’s channel in a few days. This latest video is a follow up to a Papo prehistoric animal model video posted up a few weeks ago that examined the strategy behind Papo’s product development. This new video will develop these themes and look at the way in which the French figure manufacture can expand their product range.

Everything Dinosaur's YouTube video on Papo Product Development
Everything Dinosaur’s next YouTube video will discuss the options Papo can consider when extending their prehistoric animal model range. The picture above shows the title screen for the video.

Papo Megalodon and Young Smilodon

Papo will introduce two prehistoric animal figures in 2021. The models are a replica of a young Smilodon and a model of the fearsome prehistoric shark Megalodon (C. megalodon). Both models are projected to be available around quarter 4 (2021), but Everything Dinosaur and Papo are working hard to try and bring these two figures into stock a little earlier.

Papo Model Introductions 2015-2021
A graph showing the number of new Papo prehistoric animal models introduced each year (new colour variants and brand new models).

In Everything Dinosaur’s video, team members will look at the options Papo have to expand their prehistoric animal model offering. The video will also document how the Papo model range has expanded over the years.

The graph above shows the number of new sculpts (new figures) as well as new colour variants that have been introduced by Papo since 2015. This year, (2021) Papo will bring out just two figures, neither of which are dinosaurs.

New Model Suggestions

Everything Dinosaur’s YouTube video will also give viewers the opportunity to suggest new figures that Papo might like to make. The video also challenges fans of dinosaur models to think of other ways in which Papo can expand its “Les Dinosaures” range.

PNSO Audrey the Lambeosaurus Video Review

By | January 31st, 2021|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

PNSO Audrey the Lambeosaurus Video Review

The latest additions to the PNSO mid-size model range have really got dinosaur fans and prehistoric animal model collectors excited.  Everything Dinosaur has worked with PNSO for many years, in fact we have the longest trading relationship with this company outside of China.  Audrey the Lambeosaurus is one of fourteen new for 2020/21 prehistoric animals that have been produced.  It is a very impressive hadrosaur model with a beautiful, reticulated colour scheme.  The figure has been given a gloss coat, so it has a wet-look appearance.  As one of our favourite PNSO figures, we have produced a short video review of it for our YouTube channel.

Everything Dinosaur Highlights the PNSO Lambeosaurus (Audrey the Lambeosaurus)

We recommend our YouTube video channel, it is crammed full of video reviews of prehistoric animal replicas, hints and tips and it also gives collectors the opportunity to suggest new dinosaur models.  Here is a link to the Everything Dinosaur YouTube channel: Everything Dinosaur – YouTube.

Audrey the Lambeosaurus

In the short video review (the YouTube video lasts just over two minutes), the Lambeosaurus packaging is shown and then the dinosaur model is placed on our turntable so that viewers can see this figure from all angles.  We comment on the reticulated patterning and explain what inspired the design team at PNSO to use this colour scheme and design.  In addition, we confirm the figure’s measurements and suggest a scale (based on Lambeosaurus lambei) of around 1:30 for this dinosaur model.

In the Video We Provide Detailed Model Measurements

A 1/30th Scale Hadrosaur Model

Although PNSO do not declare a scale for their mid-size prehistoric animal figures, in the Everything Dinosaur video we propose a suggested scale as well as showing close-up views of the superb detail on the dinosaur model.  The clear, glossy coat that has been applied gives the hadrosaur a wet-look.  This is most noticeable around the head and that distinctive hatchet-shaped head crest.

ITOY Studio Paraceratherium Product Testing

By | December 31st, 2020|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

ITOY Studio Paraceratherium Product Testing

Everything Dinosaur promised the company’s Facebook, Twitter and other social media fans/followers an update on the amazing ITOY Studio Paraceratherium figure before the end of the year (2020).  True to our word, we have posted up a short video on the Everything Dinosaur YouTube channel.  In the video, the narrator explains about product testing for these prehistoric animal replicas and if all goes to plan, the Paraceratherium models will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur early in 2021.

ITOY Studio Paraceratherium Product Testing

A Quick YouTube Paraceratherium Preview

Before Everything Dinosaur can bring the ITOY Studio Paraceratherium models into stock, the figures have to pass product safety tests, but this doesn’t stop us giving you a quick preview of the Paraceratherium.  In the video we showcase both variants:

  • ITOY Studio Paraceratherium – Deluxe (model supplied with polystone display base)
  • ITOY Studio Paraceratherium – Elite (model supplied without polystone display base)

The Paraceratherium Model with Display Base (Deluxe)

The ITOY Paraceratherium model (Deluxe) is supplied with a polystone display base.

What a fantastic model it is!  The detail on the figure is simple amazing!  It is incredibly life-life with beautiful skin folds and creases.  It is big too, the model measures over 40 cm long and the display base is a generous 32 cm in length and over 14 cm wide.

Works with 1:20 Scale Replicas

Although no scale is declared for this figure, based on an adult Paraceratherium being around 8 metres in length with a height at the withers (just behind the shoulders), of 4.5 metres, Everything Dinosaur team members estimate that this replica is in approximately 1:20 scale.  So, it will work well with lots of other prehistoric mammal models, which are in the same or similar scale such as Mastodons, Mammoths, Sabre-toothed cats and Hyaenodonts.

Once Product Testing Has Been Completed Everything Dinosaur Intends to Bring this Figure into Stock

Product Testing

As the authorised European importers of the ITOY Studio range, Everything Dinosaur has commissioned product safety tests with the highly respected Eurofins (independent testing company).  Once these tests have been completed and the ITOY Studio figures certified, Everything Dinosaur intends to bring these spectacular models into stock.

A spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur stated that they hoped that the test results would be available in a few days, once certified, the Paraceratherium figures would be available early in 2021.

New CollectA Models for 2021 Video Review

New CollectA Models for 2021 Video Review

Everything Dinosaur has produced a video review of the last batch of new for 2021 prehistoric animal models to be introduced by CollectA.  In our final video in this series, we provide further information on the 1/40th scale CollectA Deluxe Dilophosaurus, the 1/20th scale Doedicurus replica and the stunning Pravitoceras, an ammonite associated with the Late Cretaceous of Japan.

Everything Dinosaur’s Video Review – The Last Three New for 2021 CollectA Prehistoric Animal Models

All three of the figures featured in Everything Dinosaur’s YouTube video will be available from the UK-based company in the middle of 2021.

Question of the Day

As with the other three videos that Everything Dinosaur has produced looking at the new prehistoric animal models from CollectA, the team have been keen to provide a little more scientific information about each model.   For example, with the new CollectA Deluxe 1:40 scale Dilophosaurus, the narrator explains why this figure has been give enlarged head crests.  The reasoning behind the lack of sharp spikes on the tail of the armoured Doedicurus is highlighted and when discussing the Pravitoceras figure the narrator comments upon the differences between homomorphic and heteromorphic ammonites.

In addition, we include a “question of the day” and on this occasion, in honour of the new for 2021 CollectA Deluxe Doedicurus we ask: “what other prehistoric mammal would you like CollectA to make a model of?”

The New CollectA Deluxe Dilophosaurus is Based on the Latest Scientific Research

CollectA Dilophosaurus, Doedicurus and the New Ammonite Figure Pravitoceras

CollectA will be adding a total of eleven prehistoric animal models to their already extensive product portfolio for 2021.  They will also add a new set of mini dinosaur and prehistoric animal figures that Everything Dinosaur reviewed in an earlier blog post and video: CollectA New Models for 2021 – Part 3.

In the Doedicurus section, the narrator looks at the closest living relatives of these extinct herbivores and comments how the first fossils of these beasts came to be scientifically described by such luminaries as Charles Darwin and Richard Owen.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We have produced four videos in total.  Each video examines new for 2020 CollectA prehistoric animals and these videos along with more than 175 others can be found on the Everything Dinosaur YouTube channel.  In our last CollectA model review we looked at the scientific data that led to the revised Dilophosaurus dinosaur model, examined different types of ammonite comparing the 2020 CollectA Pleuroceras figure with the soon to be released Pravitoceras and highlighted the 1:20 scale Doedicurus.”

CollectA New for 2021 Models (Part 3) Video

Having posted up information about the latest batch of new for 2021 prehistoric animal models to be introduced by CollectA, team members put together a video review for Everything Dinosaur’s YouTube channel.  The video review provides information about the new Age of Dinosaurs Popular Elasmosaurus, discusses the famous mistake made by the American palaeontologist Edward Drinker Cope and looks at the scientific evidence for giving this huge plesiosaur a tail fin (fluke).

CollectA Deluxe 1:40 Scale Xiphactinus Model

The YouTube video review lasts about thirteen and a half minutes and provides a comprehensive review of the new CollectA Deluxe 1:40 scale Xiphactinus, a contemporary of Elasmosaurus.  However, team members stress that this prehistoric fish was much more widely distributed and it was not limited to the Western Interior Seaway.

The New Set of CollectA Mini Prehistoric Animal Models

As well as providing information on fossils relating to Xiphactinus and Elasmosaurus, the new for 2021 set of mini prehistoric animal models is also discussed.  This set will feature ten figures, nine of which are entirely new sculpts.  These models are great for use in prehistoric landscapes or dinosaur dioramas where they can represent juveniles or sub-adults.

Reviewing the New for 2021 CollectA Mini Prehistoric Animal Model Set

The new for 2021 set of mini prehistoric animals from CollectA features 10 figures.  There are 8 dinosaurs (Alamosaurus, Argentinosaurus, Iguanodon, Mapusaurus, Mercuriceratops, Oviraptor, Therizinosaurus and Utahraptor).   Also included in this set is a miniature replica of the marine reptile Pliosaurus and a flying reptile figure – Guidraco.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We aim to educate and inform with our CollectA model reviews.  Our intention is to provide some of the scientific information that is reflected in the figures.  For example, we examine amazing fossils showing the preserved remains of a victim entombed within the stomach cavity of a Xiphactinus audax specimen.  We discuss elasmosaurids and we provide pictures of plesiosaur tail bones that might indicate the presence of a tail fluke.  We have one more video to produce about new CollectA models for next year.  This video will be posted up on our YouTube channel next week.”

A Video Review of the New for CollectA Models (Part 2)

Everything Dinosaur has produced a short video review of the latest batch of new for 2021 prehistoric animal models to be introduced by CollectA.  On Friday, (13th November), Everything Dinosaur in collaboration with CollectA, announced a CollectA Deluxe 1:15 scale Pteranodon figure along with two Age of Dinosaurs Popular models – Megalosaurus in ambush and Neovenator scenting prey.

Team members have put up a ten minute video reviewing these new models, providing more details and outlining some of the scientific research that inspired their development.

CollectA Deluxe 1:15 Pteranodon Figure

The narrator discusses the new for 2021 CollectA Deluxe Pteranodon figure and highlights details of this revised and updated pterosaur model.  The presence of a tail tassel on the figure is discussed and viewers are shown a diagram of the bizarre tail bones (caudal vertebrae) of Pteranodon that led palaeontologists to conclude that it may have had some form of specialist structure on the end of its relatively long (for a member of the Pteranodontia), tail.  CollectA suggest a tail tassel which could be used in visual displays.  Other proposals include a rudder to help with steering in flight or even a fin to assist swimming when this flying reptile associated with marine environments, ditched in the sea.

Question of the Day

Viewers are asked to consider “what other pterosaur replicas would you like CollectA to make for their Deluxe or Supreme ranges?”  Feedback placed in the comments section would be passed to CollectA.

Two British Theropod Figures

The other figures featured are the two new theropods – Megalosaurus in ambush and Neovenator scenting prey.  It is great to see an updated version of the iconic Megalosaurus introduced.  As the narrator remarks in the video, the Reverend William Buckland would have been proud.  Sharp-eyed viewers will note that the teeth are not exposed in the closed mouth.  This CollectA model has been given lips (same with the new Neovenator replica).  The design team at CollectA have produced a Megalosaurus model based on the latest scientific thinking and that includes adding lips to their model in recognition of the debate with regards to oral tissues within the Theropoda.

The New CollectA Megalosaurus Model has Lips

Neovenator Scenting Prey

The CollectA Age of Dinosaurs Popular Neovenator sports a row of small, raised spines running the length of its body.  It also has a row of brown-coloured skin extensions from its lower jaw down its neck, these give the impression that it had a fleshy wattle as seen in many types of bird today.  The beautifully painted head complete with its yellow flashes is slightly elevated, as if the dinosaur is sniffing.  A scientific paper (Barker et al 2017), proposed that Neovenator had complex neurovascular canals in its snout.  Such structures are associated with a highly developed sense of smell.

CollectA wanted to reflect this research in their 2021 model, hence its full title “Neovenator scenting prey”.

Introducing New Prehistoric Animal Figures

The videos that we create are usually less than ten minutes in length.  Our aim is to provide some of the science behind the models that you might have in your collection.  Recently, Everything Dinosaur has been working on four videos, each one reviewing a batch of the new for 2021 prehistoric animal figures from CollectA.  With a total of eleven new figures due to be introduced in 2021, plus, the addition of a new set of mini dinosaur and prehistoric animal figures, team members at Everything Dinosaur have certainly been kept busy shooting and editing these CollectA model videos.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Our YouTube channel provides another communication link to our fans of dinosaurs.  For example, in our recent CollectA video reviews we asked our subscribers to recommend to CollectA what other prehistoric animal figures the company should make?  The enthusiastic and dedicated people at CollectA listen very carefully to the informed and insightful comments and feedback we receive on our channel.  The input from collectors really does help shape projects and new prehistoric animal figures.”

New CollectA Models for 2021 Video Review

New CollectA Models for 2021 Video Review

Everything Dinosaur has produced a video looking at the first three prehistoric animal models for 2021 to be announced by CollectA.  Having collaborated with CollectA on the media release that came out on Friday (6th November, 2020), Everything Dinosaur have produced a video review of the CollectA Deluxe Mamenchisaurus, along with the Kamuysaurus and the Brontosaurus prey (CollectA Age of Dinosaurs Popular range).

Everything Dinosaur’s Video Review

In Everything Dinosaur’s video review the narrator introduces each of the new figures in turn using the official images provided by CollectA.  Some of the science behind each of the new for 2021 models is highlighted.  For example, when discussing the CollectA Deluxe 1:100 scale Mamenchisaurus, the video looks at the fossil evidence for a tail club that is depicted on the CollectA figure.  Four fused vertebrae relating to a specimen of M. hochuanensis were discovered in 2001.  The uniformity of these fused caudal vertebrae led palaeontologists to conclude that these fused bones were not caused by disease or an injury to the animal.  Tail clubs have been reported in other Chinese sauropods including the closely related Omeisaurus.

The Unique Dinosaur Biota of Japan

In the section discussing the Japanese hadrosaurid Kamuysaurus, Everything Dinosaur examines the recent focus on the unique dinosaur biota of Japan by CollectA.  A model of Fukuiraptor was introduced in 2019 and earlier this year a 1:40 scale replica of Fukuisaurus was added to CollectA’s portfolio.  Although, as the narrator points out in Everything Dinosaur’s video review, Kamuysaurus evolved tens of millions of years after these two dinosaurs became extinct.

The Pathology on the CollectA Brontosaurus Prey Model

The injuries depicted on the CollectA Brontosaurus prey model reflect attack and feeding strategies that have been postulated for large theropod dinosaurs.  Our congratulations to the design team at CollectA for their skilful representation of a sauropod, attacked, weakened and ultimately dispatched by a large carnivore, or possibly a pack of large carnivorous dinosaurs.
