The CollectA Deluxe Elasmotherium Model

This is an excellent replica of this enigmatic member of the Rhinocerotidae family, a creature that has been nicknamed the “Siberian Unicorn”.  The design team at CollectA have emphasised the animal’s long legs and depicted it in an almost trotting pose.   A coat of rough shaggy hair generously covers the figure, although the presence of a shaggy coat, or indeed any hair whatsoever can only be inferred as the fossil record does not actually provide any substantive proof of the Elasmotherium having a dense coat.  The nature of the horn (if indeed it possessed one), is also largely speculative but CollectA have been careful to depict their Elasmotherium using the scientific literature as a guide.  Measuring around 26 centimetres in length and that horn standing some 15 cm tall, this is a most impressive model.

The CollectA Fukuiraptor

From a prehistoric animal known from relatively recent and abundant fossil material from a wide area, to a dinosaur that is mostly known from a single quarry site representing strata laid down in the Early Cretaceous of Japan (Kitadani Formation).  Little is known about Fukuiraptor kitadaniensis.  It has been assigned to the Megaraptora clade but prior to this it was thought to be a derived Allosauroid when first named and described nineteen years ago (Azuma, Yoichi; Philip J., Currie (2000). “A new carnosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of Japan”.  In an initial scientific study published in 1995,  it was thought that Fukuiraptor had affinities towards the Dromaeosauridae.

Fukuiraptor had large hands and powerful grasping fingers armed with strongly curved claws.   These features are well represented in this new dinosaur model.  CollectA have been keen to add more dinosaurs from Asia to their model range and Fukuiraptor has been one of the most eagerly anticipated models of 2019.

The CollectA Deluxe 1:40 scale Baryonyx Dinosaur Model

The third member of this impressive trio is the CollectA Deluxe Baryonyx dinosaur model (1:40 scale replica).  This model has an articulated jaw that has been designed to replicate the distinctive baryonchid dentition.  Since Baryonyx is associated with aquatic environments the design team at CollectA have given their model subtle webbing between the toes.
