Praise from America

Everything Dinosaur has thousands of customers all over the world.  We are always delighted to hear feedback from our customers, here at home in the UK and of course, overseas.  For example, we recently received this kind email from one of our customers in the United States, she had just purchased some Papo prehistoric animals and wrote to say:

“I just received my order from Everything Dinosaur and once again, I am just BLOWN AWAY at the quality and workmanship of the Papo dinosaur figures.  I mean, truly blown away!  They are so realistic!  I really enjoy and appreciate the info sheets that accompany my order from Everything Dinosaur as well.  I have been collecting for my four-year-old daughter since she was two years old.  I loved dinosaurs myself as a little girl.  I lived in Germany growing up and the toys in the stores there were top notch.  I collected Schleich animals as companies really didn’t have nice dinosaur figures available like this then.  It has been so fun sharing this love of dinos with my daughter and learning more about the prehistoric world through the toys we get her.”

Our thanks for the feedback and kind comments, Everything Dinosaur is a 5-star rated company as monitored by the independent survey company Feefo.

William commented:

“PNSO’s Abelisaurus  is a mighty mini.  Paint applied to perfection and very natural markings.  Martin has a wry little cheeky expression fantastic.  GREAT SERVICE from Everything Dinosaur.”

New for 2019 Eofauna Deinotherium

By | August 20th, 2019|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Eofauna Scientific Research Deinotherium Model Due October 2019

The second, new for 2019 Eofauna prehistoric animal figure has been announced.  A replica of the huge, prehistoric elephant Deinotherium (D. giganteum) is being added to this exciting range.  The model will be available in the autumn, probably in October, a short while before the Atlasaurus figure, which was announced a few days earlier.

The “Famous Five”

With the addition of the Atlasaurus and the Deinotherium, this brings the total of Eofauna Scientific Figures to five.  Eofauna Scientific Research is staffed by researchers, creatives and specialists with a focus on prehistoric fauna.  The company has demonstrated expertise in the study of ancient members of the Order Proboscidea (elephants and their relatives), three of the five models produced so far are prehistoric elephants.   The D. giganteum figure will be joining a Straight-tusked elephant (Palaeloxodon antiquus) and the first of this range to be introduced, a Steppe mammoth (Mammuthus trogontherii).

A Fact Card will be Supplied with the New for Autumn 2019 Eofauna Scientific Research Deinotherium Model

Deinotherium giganteum

Deinotherium fossils are known from Africa, Europe and parts of Asia.  It was not closely related to extant elephants or the Mammuthus genus.  The Eofauna model shows the long legs and long, low skull associated with this genus.  It is believed Deinotherium became extinct around 2.5 million years ago.

Everything Dinosaur has opened a priority reservation list for this figure, which should be in stock in October.  To join our no obligation, priority reserve list for the Eofauna Scientific Research Deinotherium, just drop us an email: Email Everything Dinosaur.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are delighted to announce that this figure will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur during the autumn.  We should have stocks of this new exciting prehistoric elephant figure and the sauropod Atlasaurus in plenty of time to ensure a happy Christmas for collectors of Eofauna models.”

Deinotherium Model Measurements – Tale of the Tape

The new Eofauna Deinotherium model has a stated scale of 1:35.  The model measures around 20 centimetres in length and stands and impressive 13 cm high.  Observant model collectors will note that this new figure is depicted on the move.  Elephants do not have the gaits associated with faster moving, large mammals such as the trot and the gallop.  Instead, when an elephant moves slowly, its limbs remain relatively straight and column-like.   Locomotion studies have shown that when moving quickly, the limbs become more mobile and flexible acting like “pogo sticks”,  helping the animal to maintain velocity.  Even when moving at full speed, the four feet of the elephant do not leave the ground simultaneously, as opposed to the limbs of a horse when galloping.

New Prehistoric Animal Model from Eofauna Scientific Research

By | August 9th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

New Prehistoric Animal Model from Eofauna Scientific Research

Our chums at Eofauna Scientific Research will be bringing out two new prehistoric animal models this autumn.  Eofauna Scientific Research has produced a trio of stunning prehistoric animal figures and by the end of the year, a further two beautiful replicas will join their range, both of which will be available from Everything Dinosaur.

Which prehistoric animals will be depicted?  We know, but we are not going to reveal what they are just yet, model collectors will have to wait a little while to find out.  However, just for a bit of fun, in association with Eofauna Scientific Research we have put together a little teaser – can you guess which prehistoric animal it is?

Which Prehistoric Animal Figure Will Eofauna Produce Next?

Prehistoric Animal Guessing Game

Something like 1,200 dinosaur genera have been described to date.  Scientists have named around 120 different types of pterosaur and hundreds of genera of prehistoric mammal have been erected.  Then of course you have all the amazing and bizarre Palaeozoic creatures to consider.  The Trilobita alone has approximately 20,000 different species arranged in ten orders (sometimes 9 depending on the taxonomy, which is still debated).

Our apologies if you don’t like prehistoric animal guessing games, feel free to attribute blame to Everything Dinosaur, we suggested to Eofauna that providing a “teaser” about new models would be a good way to develop a sense of anticipation and help raise awareness about their range of replicas.

Commissioning a Scientific Drawing

As well as making preparations for the arrival of a new prehistoric animal model, team members at Everything Dinosaur will be commissioning a scientific drawing to be used in association with this new Eofauna Scientific Research figure.

The first of the new for 2019 Eofauna models should be with us in late October, the second figure should follow about 14 days later.  Naturally, the figures could arrive sooner, they could arrive later, but model collectors can be assured these two new models are worth the wait and we look forward to revealing the first of these new 2019 figures in about a week.

New Beasts of the Mesozoic “Raptors” Feature in Newsletter

By | July 25th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Newsletters, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

New Beasts of the Mesozoic “Raptor” Models in Stock

The latest additions to the amazing Beasts of the Mesozoic range of articulated “raptor” figures feature in Everything Dinosaur’s July newsletter.  New replicas arrived at the company’s warehouse a few days ago, including the limited edition, exclusive Velociraptor osmolskae replica (alpha) as well as the trio of white nestlings.  As an exclusive model, it is the limited edition V. osmolskae (alpha) that takes the headline spot in our newsletter.

“Road Runner” and a New Velociraptor mongoliensis

Also available is the beautifully coloured purple “raptor” – Saurornitholestes (S. sullivani).  This figure has been nicknamed “road runner” as its colouration is similar to the cartoon ground dwelling bird in the Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner cartoons (Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies).  Saurornitholestes was certainly ground dwelling and cursorial.  Its velocity when running is not known, nor are we at Everything Dinosaur aware of any research that has attempted to calculate its maximum speed.   The fossil record is particularly sparse for this species, the bauplan (body plan), of this species is not known, it has been reconstructed based on more complete dromaeosaurids.  It is presumed, that like most dromaeosaurids, Saurornitholestes was nimble, agile and a fast runner – hence the “road runner” moniker.

The Beasts of the Mesozoic Velociraptor mongoliensis figure has proved to be one of the most popular figures in the entire range.  A new version (version 2), has been introduced and this figure also features in our newsletter.

Those clever designers behind the Beasts of the Mesozoic range have also added a beautifully sculpted model of the second Velociraptor species (V. osmolskae) in a wonderful, fiery red motif.  In addition, Everything Dinosaur will be stocking the Velociraptor (V. mongoliensis) black colour variant.

An Extensive Dromaeosaurid-themed Range of Figures

The range of 1:6 scale figures also includes sets of baby dinosaurs.  These are available in a variety of colour combinations.  The Beasts of the Mesozoic white-coloured nestlings feature in the latest addition of our newsletter.  Everything Dinosaur stocks a huge range of Beasts of the Mesozoic models including the “Build-a-raptor” sets, the Deluxe figures and of course, the various environmental packs – mountain, desert, forest and wetlands.

Everything Dinosaur and 3-D Secure Ecommerce Transactions

By | July 7th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Preparing for New Ecommerce Legislation – PSD2

PSD2 might sound like the name of a droid from the forthcoming “Star Wars” movie, but for anyone who shops on-line, PSD2 is going to become very significant.  New legislation is coming into force across the whole of the European Union, part of a global roll out of new rules to help protect consumers who make electronic payments either through a website such as Everything Dinosaur’s or via contactless payments or chip and pin card machines.  New, additional security authentications for ecommence transactions are being introduced.  These will help to protect consumers against fraud and these new rules come into force on Saturday, 14th September 2019.

Everything Dinosaur Working Towards PSD2 Compliance

Working towards compliance with PSD2 directive.

Providing Extra Security and Protection

If you sell on-line, then you need to prepare for this new legislation.  Everything Dinosaur’s plans are well advanced, at the heart of our business is the belief in doing what is right for our customers.  We already have very strong protections in place including 3-D security, but these new rules require strong customer authentication to help prevent the possibility of fraudulent transactions taking place.

Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2), was introduced as a follow up to earlier legislation, its aim is to further increase consumer protection when it comes to making on-line transactions such as buying dinosaur models from Everything Dinosaur.  In essence, it introduces the need for stronger consumer authentication, that is, the person using a credit/debit card to make a purchase is actually the person they say they are.

Strong Consumer Authentication Provides Extra Protection and Security for On-line Shoppers

PSD2 legislation - helping to protect our customers.

PSD2 legislation may require shoppers to give additional authentication at checkout.  This is all about extra security and protection.

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)

Your payment journey through websites, might look a little different after September 14th.  By this date all ecommerce transactions must be processed via secure industry protocols such as 3-D secure, for Everything Dinosaur we already operate this system, however,  in addition, someone making a purchase from us may need to provide proof of their identity.  Shoppers may need to give additional authentication at the checkout.

Everything Dinosaur team members are already working through the requirements to ensure compliance with the new regulations.  A key component of these new rules is that ecommerce transactions will require (in most cases), additional authentication.  Strong customer authentication requires at least two independent factors in the authentication process.

Here are the three types of factors for authentication:

  • Something you know [knowledge] such as a PIN number or password.
  • Something you have [possession] such as a card, smartphone etc.
  • Something that you are (inherence) such as a fingerprint or your biometric identity.

Each electronic payment (there will be some exemptions), must be authenticated by at least two of these factors.  This helps to protect you from fraud and it is known as two-factor authentication (2FA) or multi-factor authentication (MFA).

What Will Be Different?

At the moment, when making a purchase at Everything Dinosaur an authentication is performed as part of the card transaction process.  You might get re-directed to your card provider’s website to validate the transaction under 3-D security protocols.  If your card provider (bank), deems the transaction risk to be ‘high’, the cardholder will be required to prove their identity.  From September 14th 2019, authentication will become the new default and cannot be bypassed (unless an exemption applies).  Although authentication will be performed,  it is expected that only 5% to 10%  of authentications will result in the cardholder having to be re-directed to their banks 3-D Secure page to enter two factor authentication (2FA and challenge authentication).

The majority of the authentication requests will result in a frictionless authentication, where the cardholder is not re-directed to their banks 3-D Secure page to enter 2FA.  At Everything Dinosaur, are plans to accommodate this new legislation are already well-advanced and our existing consumer protection measures ensure that we only need to make a few minor adjustments to our security systems.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We take the protection of our customers extremely seriously.  We are currently working on responsive payment pages that will enable our customers to make a payment even more safely and securely.  In addition, we are working with our commercial partners such as SagePay to make improvements and to ensure that strong customer authentication is delivered and maintained throughout the transaction process.”

Testing of these new systems and measures will take place over the next few weeks on Everything Dinosaur’s beta sites.  This will ensure that all is ready when the new legislation comes into force on September 14th.  Furthermore, the current 3-D Secure Implementation (3DSv1) will operate until the end of 2020, but new protections entitled 3DSv2 will come into force making 3-D security systems mandatory worldwide.  Everything Dinosaur is well placed to incorporate these changes into its already very secure systems.

Rebor Dilophosaurus Figures “Green Day” and “Oasis” are in Stock

Rebor Dilophosaurus Figures “Green Day” and “Oasis” are in Stock

The two new Rebor Dilophosaurus figures “Green Day” and ” Oasis” are in stock at Everything Dinosaur.  These are the latest additions to the impressive Rebor range of scale model prehistoric animal replicas and Everything Dinosaur team members have been busy contacting dinosaur model fans on the company’s priority reserve list to ensure customers are aware of the arrival of these two exciting dinosaur figures.

Rebor Dilophosaurus Dinosaur Models

The Rebor models can be purchased separately, or as a pair from Everything Dinosaur.  Each model has an articulated lower jaw, a flexible, bendy tail and articulated forelimbs.  Subtle variations in the paint scheme of each model highlight the perceived differences between the male figure “Green Day” and the female “Oasis”.  In an earlier blog article, Everything Dinosaur posted up information on how collectors can customise their Dilophosaurus figures by adding a colourful ruff, an adornment inspired by a very famous movie.

These beautiful display pieces are provided with their own bases and the models can be put together to make a two dinosaur replica diorama.  The male Dilophosaurus model “Green Day” measures over 23 centimetres in length and the female figure “Oasis” is comparable in size.  They are certainly stunning prehistoric animal models and their bases are very detailed too.

It is the different sized bases that explains the difference in the packaging sizes.  The Rebor Dilophosaurus “Oasis” model is supplied in a larger box.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“These two new Dilophosaurus models are just the latest in a number of theropod models that have been added to the range.  The Rebor range includes Tyrannosaurs, Carnotaurus, Compsognathus, Ceratosaurus, Acrocanthosaurus and of course, lots of dromaeosaurids, colloquially known as the “Raptors”.  We are delighted to be able to add these Dilophosaurus models to our inventory.”

New prehistoric animal models and figures are coming into stock at Everything Dinosaur at an express pace.  Our latest newsletter features another seven new figures, four from Schleich and three from CollectA in what will be a stunning summer of new model additions to our ranges.  It is going to be a very busy time for our team members but we have made contingency plans to ensure that orders get despatched super quick!

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“For virtually every prehistoric animal figure we sell, we supply a fact sheet about that animal.  We take care to research these long extinct creatures and then we produce an A4-sized fact sheet which is then sent out with model purchases.  We are currently working on a further three new fact sheets so that we can provide these sheets when other new models come into stock.”

The CollectA Deluxe Elasmotherium Model

This is an excellent replica of this enigmatic member of the Rhinocerotidae family, a creature that has been nicknamed the “Siberian Unicorn”.  The design team at CollectA have emphasised the animal’s long legs and depicted it in an almost trotting pose.   A coat of rough shaggy hair generously covers the figure, although the presence of a shaggy coat, or indeed any hair whatsoever can only be inferred as the fossil record does not actually provide any substantive proof of the Elasmotherium having a dense coat.  The nature of the horn (if indeed it possessed one), is also largely speculative but CollectA have been careful to depict their Elasmotherium using the scientific literature as a guide.  Measuring around 26 centimetres in length and that horn standing some 15 cm tall, this is a most impressive model.

From a prehistoric animal known from relatively recent and abundant fossil material from a wide area, to a dinosaur that is mostly known from a single quarry site representing strata laid down in the Early Cretaceous of Japan (Kitadani Formation).  Little is known about Fukuiraptor kitadaniensis.  It has been assigned to the Megaraptora clade but prior to this it was thought to be a derived Allosauroid when first named and described nineteen years ago (Azuma, Yoichi; Philip J., Currie (2000). “A new carnosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of Japan”.  In an initial scientific study published in 1995,  it was thought that Fukuiraptor had affinities towards the Dromaeosauridae.

Fukuiraptor had large hands and powerful grasping fingers armed with strongly curved claws.   These features are well represented in this new dinosaur model.  CollectA have been keen to add more dinosaurs from Asia to their model range and Fukuiraptor has been one of the most eagerly anticipated models of 2019.

The CollectA Deluxe 1:40 scale Baryonyx Dinosaur Model

The third member of this impressive trio is the CollectA Deluxe Baryonyx dinosaur model (1:40 scale replica).  This model has an articulated jaw that has been designed to replicate the distinctive baryonchid dentition.  Since Baryonyx is associated with aquatic environments the design team at CollectA have given their model subtle webbing between the toes.
