New Schleich Saurus Models Launched

Everything Dinosaur in collaboration with the German manufacturer announce new Schleich dinosaur models planned for a 2010 release.

Schleich of Germany have been opting to upgrade and re-model some of the existing prehistoric animals in their Saurus model range rather than focus on new introductions.  Recently, the company introduced a new version of Spinosaurus and Allosaurus, the focus this year has been placed on the herbivores, with 2009 seeing the launch of the new Saichania (armoured dinosaur) and a new version of Apatosaurus.

Joining these two dinosaurs is a new model of Quetzalcoatlus the huge pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous.  We are aware of new introductions being planned for 2010 but for the moment, we are happy to see new and improved models of some old favourites being added to the Schleich dinosaur models range.

The Asian armoured dinosaur known as Saichania was named and described in 1977. The giant, herbivore was named and described by the Polish palaeontologist Teresa Maryánska. The forelimbs of this dinosaur were quite short, an anatomical trait that has been picked up by the design team at Schleich.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We congratulate Schleich for introducing a replica of an armoured dinosaur into their Saurus range.  It is great to see more Asian ankylosaurs featured in European dinosaur model ranges.”
