Dimetrodon and Giganotosaurus (Schleich) Reviewed by JurassicCollectables

New for 2019/New Colour Schemes

Both these figures are new colour schemes of previously introduced sculpts.  Providing re-painted versions of existing models can help to broaden a product range and provides a contrast to previously introduced figures.  For example, the new for 2019 Schleich Giganotosaurus has an altogether darker colour scheme than the Schleich Giganotosaurus (orange) that was launched in 2015.  The narrator points this out and goes on to provide a detailed analysis of the subtle use of airbrushing as well as commenting upon the darker colour palette associated with the skull and the airbrushing to bring out the textures in the neck.

In the Video Review, the Darker Tones of the Giganotosaurus Colour Scheme are Commented Upon

Five New Schleich Prehistoric Animals

The Giganotosaurus and the Dimetrodon are two of the five new Schleich prehistoric animals to be introduced in the first part of 2019.  We will post up details of other Schleich models due to be introduced in July, but for the meantime, dinosaur fans have a Spinosaurus, Dimorphodon, an armoured dinosaur (Animantarx) and these two prehistoric animals to collect.

Everything Dinosaur has also announced a number of model retirements from the Schleich range.

The Schleich Dimetrodon (2019)

Dimetrodon seems to be a staple in prehistoric animal model ranges and is often described incorrectly as a dinosaur.  However, this Permian predator from Schleich is praised by the video narrator for its excellent airbrushing and fine detail, especially on the sail.  The texture on the animal’s flank and the carefully painted eyes are highlighted.

JurassicCollectables have a long history of producing dinosaur model reviews, they suggest that the colour scheme for the new for 2019 Dimetrodon reflects the original “Jurassic Park” Dimetrodon model that was introduced in the 1990s.  The narrator comments that the figure has been painted in naturalistic colours, reminiscent of many living lizards.
