Six of the Best!

CollectA intend to introduce a total of eighteen prehistoric animal figures in 2020.  Due to coronavirus production plans have been interrupted, but Everything Dinosaur has been able to receive stocks of the first six models to be released.  These six new dinosaur figures help to demonstrate the great variety of body plans within the Dinosauria.  As for the models, we could say that they represent “six of the best”.

CollectA Deluxe Scale Figures

Four of the newly arrived CollectA dinosaur models are scale figures.  As well as the 1:40 scale Fukuisaurus (pictured earlier), there is a 1:40 scale replica of the recently described (2019), sauropod Bajadasaurus (B. pronuspinax).

CollectA Deluxe Bajadasaurus Turntable Tuesday

Time to pop into our studio and to put the new for 2020 CollectA Deluxe Bajadasaurus dinosaur model through its paces for “turntable Tuesday”.  Each week, Everything Dinosaur intends to feature a prehistoric animal on the company’s YouTube channel and today, it is the CollectA Deluxe Bajadasaurus going for a spin.

Everything Dinosaur on YouTube

The YouTube channel of Everything Dinosaur features lots of videos of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animal figures.  Our aim is to provide model reviews, hints and tips for collectors and to develop videos that provide a useful resource for our customers and for dinosaur fans of all ages.

The CollectA Deluxe 1:40 Scale Bajadasaurus (B. pronuspinax)

Bajadasaurus was only formally named and scientifically described in February 2019 (although the fossils were found back in 2010), we congratulate the design team at CollectA for being so quick off the mark when it comes to bringing out a figure representing a dinosaur that was described a little over a year ago.  It has been assigned to the Dicraeosauridae family of long-necked dinosaurs, although, these dinosaurs are characterised by their relatively short necks when compared to the related diplodocids such as Apatosaurus, Brontosaurus and Diplodocus.

If the fossil material has been interpreted correctly, then Bajadasaurus was one of the most bizarre of all the Dinosauria known to science.  The model, and indeed the scientific illustrations of this prehistoric animal have been based on better-known dicraeosaurids.  The huge neural spines, associated with the cervical vertebra assigned to position C5 in the neck of this dinosaur, gave rise to the idea that each neck bone had a pair of enormous, keratin-coated spines which would have acted as a formidable deterrent for any meat-eating dinosaur looking for a meal.

CollectA Deluxe Fukuisaurus 1:40 Scale (Turntable Tuesday)

As Everything Dinosaur team members get better acquainted with the video management software and other technical aspects of the company’s small studio, we have opted to try and produce at least one dinosaur or prehistoric animal themed YouTube video a week.  With the arrival of a small turntable, we decided to start showcasing various dinosaur figures by producing short (around one or two minutes long), videos.  In this brief YouTube video, we highlight the new for 2020 CollectA Deluxe 1:40 scale Fukuisaurus dinosaur model.

Fukuisaurus – A Japanese Dinosaur

The CollectA Fukuisaurus model follows hot on the heels of the CollectA Fukuiraptor figure that was introduced in 2019.  Both dinosaurs are associated with the famous Kitadani Formation of Fukui on the Japanese island of Honshu.  The ornithopod Fukuisaurus (which was named and described in 2003) and the theropod Fukuiraptor, which was formally scientifically described three years earlier, come from the same bonebed in the Kitadani Dinosaur Quarry (Bonebed I).  It has been speculated that Fukuiraptor preyed upon Fukuisaurus, but there is very little scientific evidence other than the proximity of the fossil material to support this supposition.

CollectA Fukuisaurus and CollectA Fukuiraptor

Towards the end of this short video (it lasts a fraction over two minutes long), the CollectA Deluxe Fukuisaurus and the CollectA Fukuiraptor are shown together.  This permits dinosaur model fans and collectors to get a really good look at both figures.  Although the Fukuisaurus is part of the CollectA Deluxe range and it is in approximately 1:40 scale, as Fukuisaurus was a relatively small member of the hadrosaurid lineage, the actual dinosaur model is quite small.  Everything Dinosaur team members have measured the replica and it is approximately 14 cm long and stands around 5.5 cm high at the hips.

It is beautifully detailed and there is much to be admired in this CollectA figure (yes, we do point out in the video that this dinosaur model does have a cloaca).

A spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur commented:

“A lot of dinosaur model fans and collectors have asked us to make more videos about prehistoric animals, we are working hard to get up to speed and we do intend to produce another forty or so videos this year, including reviews of some of the new for 2020 CollectA models.”

When will the CollectA Fukuisaurus be in Stock?

The first batch of the new for 2020 CollectA prehistoric animal models including the Fukuisaurus have been delayed (coronavirus).  As soon as Everything Dinosaur have news about these models, then it will be posted up onto this blog and onto the company’s social media pages.

March Model Madness

Everything Dinosaur Newsletter – March Model Madness

It is March model madness, with a new edition to the Everything Dinosaur model range plus the return of some old favourites.  Newsletter subscribers will have received this week our latest missive and it provides details of the new Wild Past Protoceratops, plus Rebor replicas and a “heads up” that the mighty 1:20 scale CollectA Deluxe Elasmotherium is back in stock!

The brand Wild Past has only recently been launched, but the first of the models in this exciting range is already in stock at Everything Dinosaur, but be warned, the 1:35 scale Protoceratops andrewsi complete with a nest of dinosaur eggs has had a very limited production run, so stock of this particular member of the Protoceratopsidae is likely to sell out fast.

The Return of Rebor Replicas

Good news for fans of Rebor replicas.  Although the extended Chinese New Year led to disruption in international delivery networks, Everything Dinosaur had been able to arrange the shipment of the popular Rebor “Raptor” replica called “Sweeney” and the 1:6 scale Compsognathus model “Sentry”.  Newsletter readers were the first to receive an update letting them know that both these Rebor figures were once again available.

Fascinating Foetus and a Charging 1:20 scale Elasmotherium

In addition, the Rebor Oddities Velociraptor foetus wet specimen with light up base is also available.  This fascinating model of an embryonic dinosaur was first introduced in the late summer of last year.  Standing around 22 centimetres high, the figure makes a striking centrepiece to any prehistoric animal model collection.  Joining the Velociraptor is the CollectA Deluxe 1:20 scale Elasmotherium, this replica too is also now available.

Wild Past Protoceratops Video Showcase

Wild Past Protoceratops Video Showcase

With the arrival of the first model in the new Wild Past prehistoric animal range, a 1:35 scale replica of Protoceratops andrewsi, Everything Dinosaur team members celebrated by creating a short video featuring this dinosaur model.

Wild Past Protoceratops Dinosaur Model (P. andrewsi)

The video lasts just under 90 seconds, but the use of the turntable enables dinosaur model fans to get a really good look at this exciting new figure.

The Protoceratops is the first figure to be introduced in this range and the dinosaur replica comes complete with a little model of a nest of dinosaur eggs.  The addition of the dinosaur eggs is very appropriate, as the discovery of nests of eggs in association with the fossilised remains of Protoceratops andrewsi demonstrated that at least some of the members of the Dinosauria laid eggs.  The dinosaur model measures around 6.5 cm in length and the tip of that bristle tail is approximately 3 cm high.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“The turntable we used in this short video, enables viewers to get a really good look at the figure.  We hope to make more videos like this and to post them up regularly.  In the meantime, dinosaur model fans should note that this Wild Past figure has had a limited production run, only 500 models have been made.”

The dinosaur model comes complete with its own box, the beautiful box art was provided by renowned Joseph Fells.  The artist gets a brief mention in our Wild Past Protoceratops video.  There are plans to add more prehistoric animal figures to the Wild Past range and Everything Dinosaur will be able to publish news of forthcoming models in the near future.

Protoceratops andrewsi

Protoceratops andrewsi is one of two species assigned to the Protoceratops genus.  It was formally named and scientifically described nearly a hundred years ago (1923).  A second, slightly larger species was described in 2001 (Protoceratops hellenikorhinus).  It remains one of the most intensely studied of all the Dinosauria and it’s discovery (the first fossil specimen was found in 1922), has helped palaeontologists to better understand two crucial aspects of dinosaur biology.

Firstly, dinosaur nests and eggs were found in association with the ubiquitous fossil remains.  This was the conclusive proof that scientists had been searching for that demonstrated that at least some of the Dinosauria laid eggs.  In addition, the hundreds of fossil specimens, many with cranial material, has enabled palaeontologists to piece together how these animals changed as they got older and matured.  As a result, the ontogeny of this dinosaur is quite well understood (ontogenesis – how an organism develops anatomically as it grows).  Palaeontologists have examples of embryos, recently hatched individuals, juveniles as well as fully mature adults to study.

Commenting on the addition of the Wild Past Protoceratops model to Everything Dinosaur’s portfolio of prehistoric animal figures and replicas, a spokesperson for the UK-based company stated:

“We are delighted to be able to add the Wild Past range to our ever-going stock of dinosaur and prehistoric animal figures.  We have already received a number of enquiries about this new replica, many collectors have been concerned that they might not be able to get hold of the Protoceratops, especially as the first production run has been quite small.  Now dinosaur fans and model collectors can acquire this 1:35 scale dinosaur model from Everything Dinosaur.”

Mojo Fun New for 2020 Prehistoric Animal Models Delayed

By | March 5th, 2020|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

New for 2020 Mojo Fun Prehistoric Animal Models Delayed Until at Least June 2020

The impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the disruption to the Chinese economy is beginning to affect production plans and proposed delivery schedules for new for 2020 prehistoric animal models.  In Everything Dinosaur’s statement released earlier this week, we explained that this virus outbreak has global implications that will affect producers, retailers and importers across a vast spectrum of goods, not only goods sourced from Asia.  Our statement also conveyed our thoughts and sympathies to all those people affected by COVID-19.  Our full statement of earlier this week can be found here: Everything Dinosaur COVID-19 Information.

As part of our own plans to help mitigate the impact of the virus, we have been working closely with our distribution chain partners and we can now confirm that the eagerly awaited new for 2020 Mojo Fun prehistoric animal models are likely to be delayed until at least June 2020.  Further delays cannot be ruled out at this stage.

Mojo Fun Prehistoric Animal Models

There are plans to introduce more than ten new dinosaur models along with colour variants of existing models.  However, the outbreak of COVID-19 has curtailed the original plans to have these figures available in March 2020.  The latest information received by Everything Dinosaur suggests that the new for 2020 prehistoric animals are likely to be delayed until at least June 2020.  The new Tyrannosaurus rex Deluxe model with an articulated jaw (seen on the right of the picture above), is one of the new figures affected.

“Bully” for Mojo Fun Brontosaurus But Not Until June 2020

Delays to Mojo Fun Models 2020.

The Mojo Fun Brontosaurus Deluxe model, regarded as an impressive sauropod replica by those lucky enough to have had the chance to view the prototype and pre-production samples, is also affected.  This twenty-three centimetre long Brontosaurus had been expected in early March but it is not likely to be available now until the early summer.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are grateful to Mojo Fun for their swift action.  By informing Everything Dinosaur we can build in contingency plans to help to bring in new models from this range as quickly as possible.  This is a fast moving story, we will do all we can to keep our customers informed about new model availability.  Fortunately, we have managed to build up buffer stocks of the popular Mojo Fun prehistoric and extinct model range and we should be able to support sales of existing models for some time to come.”

The Impressive Mojo Fun Brachiosaurus Dinosaur Model is Also Delayed

Celebrating Dragons

By | March 1st, 2020|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Photos/Pictures of Fossils|0 Comments

Celebrating Dragons – St David’s Day

In celebration of St David’s Day (St David being the patron saint of Wales, a country with a red dragon on its national flag), Everything Dinosaur team members explored their huge weblog database to see how many of our thousands of articles mention the word “dragon”, a term regarded by many as synonymous with the Dinosauria.  To our surprise, we discovered 155 articles that are associated with “dragon”.  The number of posts has increased recently with the naming of several new, Chinese dinosaur discoveries which tend to use the word “long” rather than “saurus” in their scientific name.  The term “long” means dragon in Chinese, a suffix frequently used to name Chinese dinosaurs whereas the Greek term “saurus” is preferred in the West.

For example, earlier this year we put together a blog post about the newly named microraptorine Wulong bohaiensis, the genus name translates as “dancing dragon”, a reference to the posture of the preserved specimen.

To read our article about this little feathered dinosaur: Little Dancing Dragon Sheds Light on how Dinosaurs Grew Up.

Komodo Dragons

Another reason why the Everything Dinosaur blog may have a lot of references to dragons is that back in the autumn of 2019, the eagerly awaited Rebor GrabNGo 1:6 scale Komodo dragon replica came into stock.  This was the first model in the Rebor GrabNGo line and the first commercial model of an extant (not extinct) animal that Rebor had produced.  Measuring nearly half a metre in length, this super-sized replica of a super-sized lizard earned rave reviews from model collectors.

This popular Rebor figure not only occupies space on our blog, we get lots of emails about this model too.  For instance, an email was received last week from a model maker who wanted to use this figure in a diorama.  Everything Dinosaur was contacted after the purchase was made and we were asked for our advice on how best to depict the figure and what sort of prey items were suitable for including in the intended diorama.

To purchase the Rebor Komodo dragon and the rest of the replicas in the Rebor range: Rebor Dinosaurs and Models.

With the very strong possibility of more Chinese dinosaurs being scientifically described in 2020 and with the ever increasing popularity of Rebor models, team members at Everything Dinosaur are likely to be writing about “dragons” for some time to come.

CollectA Deluxe Protoceratops Video Preview

Everything Dinosaur is expecting to take delivery of the first batch of the new for 2020 CollectA prehistoric animal models in just a few weeks.  One of the new figures will be the 1:6 scale replica of Protoceratops (P. andrewsi).  To help dinosaur fans and model collectors to appreciate the superb detailing on this replica, we have made a short sixty second preview video.  This is the first video that utilises our new turntable, this is really helpful when it comes to displaying dinosaur models and figures.

The CollectA Protoceratops measures around 24 cm in length and those bristles on the tail stand approximately 11 cm high.  Everything Dinosaur has invested in a small turntable so that viewers of the company’s videos can get a really good look at prehistoric animal models and replicas.  In this short video preview, the detail on the Protoceratops can be clearly seen, with features such as the articulated lower jaw and cloaca visible.

“The turntable permits us to display a model in such a way that viewers can get a really good look at the figure.  We can operate the turntable in either a clockwise or an anti-clockwise direction, so our YouTube channel subscribers have a 360˚ view of the prehistoric animal on display.  We intend to post up more videos providing previews of up and coming models in the future, after all, we have a lot of new dinosaurs coming into stock in the next two months or so.”
