A Video Review of the CollectA Deluxe 1:40 Therizinosaurus Dinosaur Model

Those clever manufacturers CollectA have made an excellent replica of the bizarre theropod dinosaur known as Therizinosaurus.  We at Everything Dinosaur have made a short video review of this new for 2014 replica.  In this short video (six minutes and fifty seconds), we look at this model in more detail, discuss the fossil discoveries and compare this replica to the smaller, not-to-scale therizinosaur model introduced by CollectA a couple of years ago now.

In this video we introduce Sir Arthur Gauge.  Sir Arthur is the name of the human replica that is included with many of the 1:40 Deluxe CollectA models.  He provides a scale for the replica in question.   In this particular case, estimating the scale of the CollectA Deluxe Therizinosaurus model is quite difficult, the fragmentary fossil material makes it tricky to provide a size guide for a fully grown animal. Some palaeontologists believe that Therizinosaurus cheloniformis weighed more than five tonnes and was over ten metres long.  Based on our estimates, we calculate that this figure is around 1:35 to 1:40 scale.

 Those impressive claws, are very well depicted.  The largest manual unguals (claw cores) associated with T. cheloniformis measure over seventy centimetres in length.  In life, with the horny sheath covering the largest claws would have been around a metre long.
