New Scale Model of Giganotosaurus from Schleich of Germany

The long awaited Giganotosaurus model from Schleich has just been launched and Everything Dinosaur, is one of the very first companies to get their stock.  This beautifully painted, scale model of Giganotosaurus (giant southern lizard), shows this large allosaurid as a robust and stocky animal, much as depicted by Paul Sereno et al.

The Giganotosaurus model measures over 36 cm long and the head stands nearly 20 cm off the ground.  The model is well proportioned and the teeth and jaws are particularly well painted.

It certainly is a fearsome beast and makes a very nice addition to the Schleich Saurus range.  This is the only new dinosaur model Schleich intend to launch this year, but there are plans for new models in 2011 and 2012, dinosaur fans will have to wait and see what comes out but for the time being there is this new Giganotosaurus interpretation to satisfy their appetites for exciting dinosaur figures.
