New Bullyland Ichthyosaurus Model Postponed

The new Bullyland Ichthyosaurus model that was exclusively revealed by Everything Dinosaur in May has been postponed until 2021.  The model, representing an iconic marine reptile synonymous with Jurassic strata both in UK and in Germany was due to be in stock in the early summer but production issues related to the COVID-19 crisis has led to the postponement of this eagerly anticipated prehistoric animal figure.  The future of this figure remains uncertain.

Delayed Until 2021?  The Bullyland Ichthyosaurus Marine Reptile Model

The Bullyland Ichthyosaurus Model

On May 18th (2020), Everything Dinosaur revealed a picture of the Bullyland Ichthyosaurus model on the company’s social media pages.  Sadly, we have been informed by Bullyland that this figure has now been postponed.  It is one of a number of new models and novelties that have had to be cancelled due to the current economic conditions brought about by the pandemic.  In an email sent to Everything Dinosaur, a spokesperson from the German manufacturer explained that “Bullyland had to cancel articles and postpone novelties to 2021.”

Bullyland did not introduce any new, large prehistoric animal model figures last year (2019).  Indeed, the last new prehistoric animals (Triceratops and Archaeopteryx) came out in 2017.  In meetings with Everything Dinosaur, team members were informed about new product plans and a concept “diapsid” range of smaller figures available as a set, but like so many organisations at the moment, production plans have had to be revised.

Everything Dinosaur Comments

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Many companies are having to take appropriate strategic decisions at this difficult time.  Manufacturing has been affected and there are difficulties being encountered with global logistics.  Lots of organisations have delayed, postponed or cancelled production plans due to the coronavirus pandemic.  Bullyland figures and models are very popular with collectors and fans of dinosaurs and although they may be disappointed to hear this news, we suspect that they will understand the reasons for this decision.”
