To read our previous article that provides details on all the new Beasts of the Mesozoic “raptor” releases for 2019: New Beasts of the Mesozoic Figures for 2019.

The first batch of Beasts of the Mesozoic figures will focus on the “raptors”. However, there are plans to launch articulated ceratopsians and tyrannosaurs.

Superb Quality Articulated Figures

The Beasts of the Mesozoic range consist of superb quality, articulated figures.  They are the brainchild of the highly talented and respected artist David Silva.  Everything Dinosaur team members are eagerly looking forward to the arrival of the new “raptors” including the limited-edition Velociraptor osmolskae figure, the second species to be named in the Velociraptor genus (named in 2008, whereas V. mongoliensis was formally named and described back in 1924).

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“It is fitting to see a Velociraptor named after a Polish scientist – Halszka Osmólskaand one first described by researchers led by a Belgian palaeontologist – Pascal Godefroit, coming to Europe.  It has been eleven years since this ground dwelling carnivore was formally named and described and more than ninety years since the genus Velociraptor was erected, it is great to see a Velociraptor osmolskae figure added to our inventory.”

Beautiful Artwork

One of the features of this highly collectable range of prehistoric animals is the beautiful box art.  The Velociraptor osmolskae illustration on the box is from renowned artist Raul Ramos.  Raul will be the package illustrator for the ceratopsian themed articulated figure series which will be the next range of models to be launched.

In the beautiful illustration by Raul Ramos, the Velociraptor is depicted in a dry, arid environment.  The type fossil specimen for this species comes from the Bayan Mandahu Formation of China, strata that represents a desert habitat, so the backdrop chosen by the artist is entirely appropriate.
