TetZooCon 2019

Just a few more sleeps until the start of the annual TetZooCon event in London.  This is the meeting of fans of the tetrapods (living and extinct), amphibians and the amniotes (reptiles, birds and mammals).  Once again Everything Dinosaur is delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring this prestigious meeting themed around the world-renowned blog Tetrapod Zoology.

TetZooCon is bigger and better than ever and it takes place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th October at the spacious “The Venue” in Malet Street, London.  Speakers from the TetZooCon universe will be presenting on topics as diverse as whale strandings, the diseases of theropod dinosaurs, natural history film making and hunting with eagles.  Amongst the activities there will be a quiz and Everything Dinosaur has donated the prizes.

Conservation and Cryptozoology

The two-day conference covers a variety of special interests, from conservation projects looking into the demise of UK amphibian populations to using citizen science to investigate the impact of roadkill.  There is a lot for cryptozoologists too.  Cryptozoology looks at the evidence to prove the existence of animals from myths, legends and folklore, such as the Mokele-mbembe from the Congo Basin of Africa, which some believe to be a type of sauropod dinosaur.  Conference organiser Darren Naish, an authority on the subject, will be taking time out from his duties at the event to sell and sign copies of his latest book – “The Cryptozoologicon (Volume 1)” – the biology, evolution and mythology of hidden animals.  TetZooCon will include plenty of time to meet authors, peruse their publications and to get some favourite copies signed.

Everything Dinosaur has Prepared Slide Shows for the Event

A Haven for Palaeoart and Palaeoartists

Talented artist and fellow organiser John Conway will be leading some of the exciting palaeoart activities and workshops.  Noted luminaries in the world of prehistoric illustration will be attending such as Bob Nicholls and Beth Windle will be leading a discussion on “women in palaeoart”.  This annual event is turning into a haven for palaeoart and palaeoartists, the extensive social media coverage will give plenty of opportunity to all those unable to attend to view and appreciate the artwork and scientific illustrations on display.

The quiz might even feature a Beasts of the Mesozoic model or two.  We could not possibly comment, other than to say that as the exclusive distributors for this exciting range of articulated collectible figures, they epitomise the link between beautiful scientific illustration and imaginative scale models.  On the subject of scale models, look for a presentation by Agata Stachowiak on how to produce accurate models of prehistoric animals – fascinating stuff.

Limited Edition Papo Spinosaurus Model Delayed until December (2019)

Limited Edition Papo Spinosaurus Model Delayed until December (2019)

The eagerly anticipated limited edition Papo Spinosaurus dinosaur model has been delayed until December (2019), according to information from Papo received by team members at Everything Dinosaur.  Readers of this blog will probably recall that Everything Dinosaur published the first pictures of this spinosaurid figure back in February, however, model collectors and dinosaur fans will have to wait until December before they can get their hands on this Papo replica.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We had been told back in the summer that this figure would be available in October, however, we have just been informed by Papo that this dinosaur will not be available until December.  No reasons have been given for the delay and we don’t want to speculate about the reasons for this delay at this stage.  However, all our plans are in place to contact all those people who reserved a model, everything is ready at Everything Dinosaur for the arrival of this figure.  As soon as it comes in, we will be in touch with all those customers on our reserve lists, even if it means bringing in extra staff to ensure swift communications, at what will be, our busiest time of the year.”

If Everything Dinosaur receives any further information or updates about the Papo Spinosaurus dinosaur model, we will post this up onto this blog and other social media platforms.

Rebor Scout Models in Stock

By | October 8th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

The Scouts Return – “Melon”, “Hazelnut” and “Stan”

Everything Dinosaur has three of the very popular and very collectable Rebor Scout models back in stock.  Our warehouse has received deliveries of “Melon” the baby Stegosaurus, “Hazelnut” the baby Triceratops and “Stan” the baby Velociraptor.  Fans of the Rebor range will know that the Velociraptor figure is named after the Academy Award-winning special effects creator Stanley “Stan” Winston, who worked on the first three films of the “Jurassic Park” movie franchise.

“Melon” and “Hazelnut”

Team members at Everything Dinosaur are not sure why the baby Stegosaurus and the baby Triceratops were named “Melon” and ” Hazelnut” respectively, however, why not give these two, highly detailed figures these names?  It seems that unlike scientific nomenclature, anything goes when it comes to creating prehistoric animal replicas.  Both the Rebor baby Triceratops and its Stegosaurus counterpart are in approximately 1:35 scale, whilst the Rebor Velociraptor figure is in 1:18 scale.

A Baby Stegosaurus Dinosaur Model

Fans of the Rebor model range will be aware of the potential for a new Stegosaurus replica from this company in the near future.  For the time being, the sole representative of the Stegosauridae is this beautifully crafted figure that comes with its own display base.

The Triceratops figure “Hazelnut” is around the same size as the Stegosaurus (approximately 11 cm in length).  It too, comes with a display base and it makes a great addition to any prehistoric animal model collection.

It is the attention to detail that makes these Rebor models stand out.  Take for example, the display base that accompanies the 1:18 scale baby Velociraptor figure “Stan”.  The base has footprint depressions that act as a guide to help dinosaur fans position their figure correctly.  The footprints on the base have been carefully sculpted to represent what are thought to be dromaeosaurid prints found in the fossil record.  We are sure ichnologists will approve!

Go exploring for dinosaur fossil bones and teeth with this super, child’s dinosaur themed hard hat.  The hard hat comes complete with a headlamp torch to help illuminate the young explorer’s path.  Please note, this is a hat ideal for role play and dressing up games and that this is not a piece of actual safety apparel, although the hat with its motif of dinosaur skeletons, claws and teeth is much more attractive than our own hard hats that we wear.  The torch requires two AA batteries (not supplied), but the hat comes with comprehensive instructions about fitting/changing batteries.  The child’s hard hat even has an adjustable plastic strap, just like a real hard hat, so you can ensure that the hat fits snug and secure.

Everything Dinosaur Handling UK and European Beasts of the Mesozoic Kickstarter Rewards

By | September 18th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur Handling UK and European Kickstarter Action Figure Rewards

With the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for the Beasts of the Mesozoic Ceratopsian series, these are exciting times for model collectors and dinosaur fans.  Everything Dinosaur, the UK-based, specialist prehistoric animal mail order company is proud to have been associated with the Beasts of the Mesozoic range of collectable figures for several years and will be handling the fulfilment of all the Kickstarter action figure rewards for this prestigious campaign for Ceratopsian Kickstarter backers within the UK and European Union.

The Beasts of the Mesozoic Ceratopsian Series Kickstarter Has Launched

Beasts of the Mesozoic Ceratopsian Series.  An exciting new range of articulated horned dinosaur figures.

Everything Dinosaur’s Involvement

The involvement of Everything Dinosaur in the fulfilment aspect of the campaign further cements the close working relationship between the talented team behind Creative Beast Studio and the logistics experts at an award-winning company.  Dinosaur fans are going to be elated about this new Kickstarter project, but the design and build process is just one phase in meeting the needs of model collectors.  Followers of the previous “Raptor” Kickstarter project will be all too aware of the difficulties that can arise during the production process.  Once produced, other issues can be encountered as these models are despatched to project supporters.  By involving Everything Dinosaur in the fulfilment, supporters within the UK and Europe can be assured that their figures will be despatched by Everything Dinosaur from their European base.  This substantially reduces the risk of customers incurring additional taxes, custom duties and tariffs.

What a Line Up!  A Cornucopia of Ceratopsians

A selection of some of the amazing Beasts of the Mesozoic Ceratopsians.

A selection of Beasts of the Mesozoic horned dinosaur models.  The Kickstarter campaign outlines a schedule of ten models being released in September 2020, with a further eight new figures in March 2021.  If all goes to plan, a third wave consisting of seven more dinosaurs will be available in September 2021.

Ceratopsian Figures Coming into Stock

As well as handling the fulfilment for European and UK customers, Everything Dinosaur will be bringing in their own bulk stock of these figures, this should ensure a swift and trouble free route for the models from the factory to UK warehousing without customs delays, thus ensuring that Kickstarter backers can receive their pledged items promptly.

In addition, as  Everything Dinosaur will be carrying stocks of the Beasts of the Mesozoic ranges, fans can add to their figure collection easily and conveniently via Everything Dinosaur’s own website.

Mike Walley from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Fulfilment operations on a global scale can be quite a tricky business.  Fans of the excellent Beasts of the Mesozoic model range want to get these models without any additional burdens.  At Everything Dinosaur, our warehouse team despatch parcels to Europe and the UK all the time, our customers are well-used to our seamless and efficient delivery service.  Whilst we cannot guarantee that customers may incur additional expense in the form of duties and taxes, or indeed that international trading terms and conditions may change, in our experience when supplying European and UK customers from our UK warehousing we are have not heard of any problems arising .  We take great care to ensure that parcels are labelled correctly and despatched appropriately, after all, we have a 5-star customer service rating from Feefo as well as an award for Gold Standard service.”

Rebor GrabNGo Komodo Dragon Model

By | September 16th, 2019|Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|1 Comment

Rebor GrabNGo Komodo Dragon Model

Everything Dinosaur team members have been taking an exclusive look at the up-and-coming Rebor Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) model, which is the first in a new product line entitled “GrabNGo”.  This is a beautiful, highly detailed model of the largest living lizard, which is sometimes referred to as the Komodo monitor.

A 1:6 Scale Komodo Dragon Replica

The model measures a fraction under 48 centimetres in length, but when the curvature of that impressive tail is taken into account the model’s true size is around half a metre, making this a 1:6 scale replica.  The skin texture has been skilfully created with accurate folds and appropriately proportioned digits.  The underside of the body and tail also shows lots of amazing detail and scales, particularly along the underside of the neck and jaw, although our figure lacks a cloaca.  The production sample we were kindly sent does not have a CE mark so the skin texture is uninterrupted along the entire animal’s length.

Amazing Detail on the Head of the New Rebor GrabNGo Komodo Dragon Model

Dragon Skin

The lightweight but reinforced hollow vinyl material gives this figure a very solid feel and the subtle painting provides the viewer with an impression of an expensive desk-top figure.  The Komodo dragon is renowned for its tough hide.  The skin of this lizard, which can reach lengths of up to 2.6 metres and weigh in excess of 70 kilograms, is reinforced by tiny dermal scales (osteoderms).  It is thought that this armour helps to prevent injury when it attacks large prey or during intraspecific combat.

The Megalania Connection

This Rebor GrabNGo figure could also be used to represent the extinct giant goanna of southern Australia – Megalania (Varanus priscus, or sometimes referred to as Megalania prisca).  It has been proposed that Megalania represents a sister taxon to the Komodo dragon and like its Indonesian cousin, it was an apex predator within the ecosystem.  Size estimates for Megalania vary but studies of fossilised dorsal vertebrae suggest a length of around 6 metres.  If this is the case, then the Rebor GrabNGo model would equate to a 1:12 scale replica.

Is this a Megalania or a Komodo Dragon?

Megalania or Komodo dragon? Your decide.

Available Late September/Early October

The Rebor GrabNGo Komodo dragon is likely to be available before Christmas.  Everything Dinosaur team members are doing all they can to ship this model in quickly.

The price is estimated to be around £15.99 plus postage (GBP).

Providing a Testimonial for the Chamber of Commerce

Last week, Everything Dinosaur was asked by our local Chamber of Commerce to provide feedback on the support we had received from the Chamber’s International Trade team.  We were happy to oblige and team members spent part of the weekend composing a suitable press release.  The Chamber of Commerce publishes a quarterly magazine and they wanted our permission to feature Everything Dinosaur in an article related to the Chamber’s support of exports and international trade.

Everything Dinosaur and the New Payment Services Directive 2

By | September 7th, 2019|Adobe CS5, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur and the New Payment Services Directive 2

Back in July, we wrote a short blog post about changes to the way in which credit/debit card payments will be processed from September 14th 2019.  A new European Union directive is coming into force.  Known as PSD2, it aims to bring in new laws to increase consumer protection across Europe.  A key feature of this directive is the introduction of additional on-line security for ecommerce transactions.

Everything Dinosaur is compliant with this new directive, as you would expect, we have been planning for these changes for some months now and testing of the beta sites has been completed and the new framework placed on Everything Dinosaur’s live website.  All has been sorted, everything has been prepared in readiness for the deadline of September 14th.

Everything Dinosaur is Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) Compliant

When PSD2 comes into effect next week, some customers may see some changes when it comes to paying for goods and services on-line.  In essence, stronger identity checks may be required and the customers’ payment journey through an on-line check-out may look a little different.

To read our July article that provides more information on this directive and what it might mean for your ecommerce transactions: Everything Dinosaur and 3-D Secure Ecommerce Transactions.

Praise from America

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.

Everything Dinosaur Has Been Awarded Feefo’s Highest Accolade for Customer Service
