PNSO to Add a Tarbosaurus Dinosaur Model

By | June 11th, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|1 Comment

In a joint collaboration with PNSO, Everything Dinosaur is pleased to announce that a Tarbosaurus dinosaur model is being introduced into PNSO’s mid-size prehistoric animal model range. Say hello to Chuanzi the Tarbosaurus, the very latest addition to the ever-growing PNSO prehistoric animal portfolio.

This new dinosaur figure is likely to be available from Everything Dinosaur in the late summer of 2021.

Dinosaur fans and model collectors will be aware that PNSO have ramped up production considerably and numerous new figures have been announced since the end of 2020. Chuanzi the Tarbosaurus is the second member of the Tyrannosauroidea to be announced this year after Yinqi the Yutyrannus (April 2021). Eagle-eyed collectors will note that the Tarbosaurus figure is number 51 in this series, whilst Yinqi, which was announced earlier is number 52.

Tarbosaurus bataar

Named and described in 1955, Tarbosaurus (T. bataar) is one of the largest tyrannosaurids known. It is believed to have been slightly smaller than Tyrannosaurus rex, but closely related to the “tyrant lizard king”. Tarbosaurus measured around 12 metres in length and most body weight estimates suggest a figure of between 4,000 and 5,000 kilograms.

Model Measurements

Chuanzi the PNSO Tarbosaurus measures 31 cm in length and it has a head height of 11 cm. The recently introduced new Wilson the T. rex figure is slightly longer (34.5 cm long), so these two models can be displayed together to provide the viewer with a comparison between these closely related Late Cretaceous tyrannosaurs.

Available from Everything Dinosaur in the Summer (2021)

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur confirmed that they intended to stock this figure and that it should be available from them later this summer. They also stated that there were more prehistoric animal figures to be announced.

As with other theropod dinosaur models in the PNSO model range, this new Tarbosaurus will have an articulated lower jaw and it will be supplied with a transparent stand to help support the model.

The UK-based Everything Dinosaur, a dedicated team that specialises in the supply of museum quality dinosaur and prehistoric animal models has moved into new, bigger premises. The new premises were acquired at the beginning of the year, but COVID-19 restrictions delayed the building of the offices and the bespoke packing rooms as well as the laying out of the racking system and storage facilities for all the various dinosaurs that the company stocks.

Helicoprion Scale Drawing

By | June 5th, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Drawings, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

As Everything Dinosaur team members prepare for the arrival of the new for 2021 PNSO Helicoprion model a scale drawing of this strange fish from the Permian has been commissioned. Haylee the Helicoprion model is due to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur later in the summer (2021).

As Everything Dinosaur prepares for the arrival of Haylee the Helicoprion model from PNSO a scale drawing of this Permian fish has been commissioned.

Helicoprion bessonowi

Three species in the Helicoprion genus are currently assigned, each one being distinguished from the others by variations identified in the distinctive tooth whorl. The size of this predator remains uncertain, although based on the morphology of other smaller related fish, Helicoprion has been estimated to have been around 5 to 8 metres in length. In the Everything Dinosaur scale drawing that we have prepared, our image indicates that this strange fish grew to lengths of around 7.5 to 8 metres.

Haylee the Helicoprion

As with the other mid-size PNSO replicas, this stunning model has been given a nickname. The figure is called Haylee the Helicoprion, Everything Dinosaur team members are not sure why Haylee was chosen; however, it is certainly a welcome addition to the PNSO product portfolio and we are looking forward to stocking it later on this year (2021).

PNSO Haylee the Helicoprion model measurements
The model measures 21 cm in length and from the base of the tail fluke to the top of the dorsal fin of the Helicoprion is 7.5cm

Model Measurements

The model measures around 21 cm in length and although PNSO do not declare a scale for this range of prehistoric animal figures, team members estimate that if Helicoprion was around 8 metres in length then this model would be in approximately 1:38 scale or thereabouts.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that they were looking forward to bringing this model into stock and they were also excited about making more new product announcements about PNSO models in the very near future.

PNSO to Add a Kronosaurus Model

By | May 28th, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

PNSO will add a 1:35 scale model of a Kronosaurus to their scientific art range of figures. The marine reptile figure entitled Jeff the Kronosaurus will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur later in the summer (2021).

Two Distinctive Kronosaurus Species

This monstrous short-necked pliosaur measured around ten metres in length. It was a fearsome, apex predator of Early Cretaceous seas (Aptian to Albian faunal stages of the Early Cretaceous) and two species have been named. Kronosaurus queenslandicus was formally named and described in 1924 and this Australian species was joined by Kronosaurus boyacensis from Columbia which was named in 1992.

Colouration of a Killer Whale

The new for 2021 Jeff the Kronosaurus model has a dark topside and a contrasting lighter, almost white shading underneath. Like extant Orcas (Orcinius orca), this colouration would help to break-up this predator’s outline in the water. The lighter underside would have been difficult to spot when viewed from below against a sunlit water surface. The dark markings on the top of the body, would have camouflaged Kronosaurus and made it difficult to pick out from the murky depths when viewed from above in the water column. The colouration of Kronosaurus is unknown, but team members at Everything Dinosaur recognise that the design team at PNSO have been influenced by living marine animals when it came to Jeff’s colouration.

Coming in for the attack, the PNSO Kronosaurus marine reptile model.
The new for 2021 PNSO Kronosaurus marine reptile model.

Kronosaurus Model Measurements

The Kronosaurus model measures 24.6 cm in length and it is 13.1 cm wide across the rear flippers. Although the figure is stated as being in 1:35 scale, based on these measurements, the PNSO model represents and animal around 8.6 metres in length.

PNSO to Add More Stegosaurus Models

By | May 22nd, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

In the summer of 2021, Everything Dinosaur will be stocking the new Biber and Rook 1:35 scale scientific art dinosaur models from PNSO. These new dinosaur figures were announced yesterday and the box set will feature an adult Stegosaurus with a juvenile.

The PNSO Stegosaurus dinosaur models (Biber and Rook) in anterior view, these two figures are due to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur in the summer (2021).

PNSO Biber and Rook Stegosaurus Models

Biber is the name of the adult Stegosaurus figure and Rook is the epithet given to the baby armoured dinosaur. It is not certain whether the adult Stegosaurus in this set is a male or a female. The figures join an earlier PNSO Stegosaurus replica that was introduced in 2019. The adult Stegosaurus in this new set is a different figure to the 2019 Stegosaurus.

The mother Stegosaurus is protecting her baby. Whether it is a male or female Stegosaurus is immaterial, this pair of stegosaurs joins Bieber the Stegosaurus that was introduced in 2019.

A Wide Range of Armoured Dinosaurs

Biber and Rook the Stegosaurus models are the latest editions to a wide range of armoured dinosaur models offered by Everything Dinosaur and PNSO. The PNSO portfolio includes Rosana the Miragaia, Qichuan the Tuojiangosaurus in the mid-size model range that were introduced in 2020 along with several smaller armoured dinosaur figures such as a Wuerhosaurus and a Kentrosaurus in the “Prehistoric Animal Toys that Accompany Your Growth” series.

The adult Stegosaurus (Biber) measures around 21.5 cm in length and those beautiful plates stand 11 cm high. Everything Dinosaur estimates that on this scale, the baby stegosaur (Rook) is about 5 cm long.

The adult PNSO Stegosaurus figure is 21.5 cm long and those magnificent plates are 11 cm tall. We estimate the baby stegosaur to be around 5 cm in length.

Representing Dinosaurs from the Famous Morrison Formation

PNSO have expressed a desire to introduce models that represent prehistoric animals from famous geological formations. These two new figures represent animals from the famous Morrison Formation of western North America. They join the likes of the recently announced Allosaurus figure (PNSO Paul the Allosaurus), as representatives of the dinosaur biota from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation.

Rebor Retrosaurus Models

By | May 21st, 2021|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Rebor has announced that the first wave of Retrosaurus dinosaur models is in production and due to be dispatched around the middle of June (2021). The first two models making up wave 1 are the Rebor 1:35 Vintage Palaeoart Tyrannosaurus rex “Mesozoic Rhapsody” Valley colour variant and the green-coloured Rebor 1:35 scale 80s T-REX Toy HD Remastered “Californiacation” VHS variant.

Changing Perceptions About the Dinosauria

These beautifully sculpted 1:35 scale figures represent dinosaurs as depicted in films that were made in the 1930s through to the late 1960s. Films such as King Kong (1933), One Million Years B.C. (1966) and the Valley of the Gwangi (1969), that inspired generations of Earth scientists.

Model Measurements

The models entitled Rebor 1:35 Vintage Palaeoart Tyrannosaurus rex “Mesozoic Rhapsody” Valley and Rebor 1:35 80s T-REX Toy HD Remastered “Californiacation” VHS measure 28 cm in length, are approximately 20 cm tall and about 14 cm wide. They give dinosaurs a retrospective look, that is, they reflect how dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus rex and Allosaurus were depicted in the past.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Rebor have been keen to introduce a range of prehistoric animal figures that pay homage to the model designers and sculptors who animated dinosaurs and other long extinct creatures in iconic feature films that helped inspire a generation of palaeontologists. When compared to other figures that are available today, they demonstrate just how much our perceptions regarding the Dinosauria have changed.”

Dinosaur Models with Articulated Jaws

The figures show the fine detailing that Rebor is famous for and given that their tails rest on the ground, these tail-dragging models will be very stable allowing them to be displayed on a variety of media. Perhaps dinosaur model fans could have a go at building their own dioramas reproducing scenes made famous by stop motion pioneers such as Ray Harryhausen and Willis O’Brien.

Both models are available for pre-order from Everything Dinosaur from today (May 21st 2021) and a spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that these models are expected to be in stock in late July (2021). They might come into stock sooner, but at this stage the spokesperson could not confirm a specific date.

Pick up a Placerias

By | May 18th, 2021|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 has received lots of requests for a Placerias model, so our dedicated team members responded by making sure customers could pick up a Placerias if they wanted to. This large, Late Triassic dicynodont has remained popular ever since it appeared in the very first episode of the ground-breaking BBC television documentary “Walking with Dinosaurs” back in 1999. We have brought in a special batch of prehistoric animal figures to ensure that there are plenty of Placerias to go around.

An Inexpensive Prehistoric Animal Figure

The Placerias is available as part of a set of inexpensive prehistoric animal figures that we stock. However, we were receiving so many requests for this particular figure that stocks soon ran out. Team members have arranged to bring in a special production run of these prehistoric animals and this has permitted the model to be made available for sale as an individual item.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“This Placerias model is very similar to the dicynodonts that featured in the first ever episode of the BBC series “Walking with Dinosaurs”. The episode was called “New Blood” and depicted the faunal turnover that was taking place in the Late Triassic as the dinosaurs were beginning to be dominate terrestrial ecosystems. A herd of green-coloured Placerias, very similar to our Placerias model were slowly dying out as they could not adapt to dramatic climate change.”

A Very Expensive Television Series

At the time it was made the award-winning “Walking with Dinosaurs” television series was the most expensive project undertaken by the BBC in terms of the cost per minute of screen time. Placerias was depicted as a member of the Ghost Ranch biota of New Mexico. Terrestrial environments during the Late Permian had been dominated by the herbivorous Dicynodontia. Although severely depleted as a result of the End-Permian mass extinction, these therapsids survived throughout the Triassic before finally becoming extinct as more arid conditions favoured the emerging dinosauromorphs that were to take over the role as megaherbivores in Late Triassic ecosystems.
