Rebor Dilophosaurus “Green Day” – Turntable Tuesday

It’s “Turntable Tuesday” and it is time to give another prehistoric animal model a spin on the turntable in Everything Dinosaur’s film and photography studio.  Today, it is the turn of the “Green Day” male Dilophosaurus dinosaur model from Rebor.  This replica of the Early Jurassic theropod was introduced in 2019, stock of this figure, along with its counterpart, the female Dilophosaurus “Oasis” has just come into Everything Dinosaur’s warehouse.

Dilophosaurus wetherilli – Double Crested Lizard

Fossils discovered in Arizona in the 1940s and originally attributed to the taxonomic wastebasket taxon Megalosaurus were formally assigned their own genus in 1970 when this dinosaur was scientifically described – Dilophosaurus (D. wetherilli).  The famous crests of Dilophosaurus, after which this large carnivore is named, have never been found attached to the skull.  However, the standard restoration as seen in the Rebor model seems to be the most convincing and plausible anatomical configuration.

In Everything Dinosaur’s “Turntable Video” review we provide a close-up view of the skull and those crests as we demonstrate the articulated jaw.  In addition, we utilise a split screen effect to show the poseable tail and the articulated front limbs.

The Rebor Dilophosaurus dinosaur models have articulated lower jaws, articulated arms and poseable tails.  Note the red flash over the eye of the “Green Day” model.  Rebor added this colouration to help distinguish the “male” model from the “female” Dilophosaurus – “Oasis”.

Calculating the Scale

In the Everything Dinosaur “Turntable Tuesday” video review (which is just over one minute fifty seconds long), we provide measurements for the “Green Day” figure.  The actual length of the dinosaur model is difficult to quantify as the tail is flexible but if the model is put into a natural pose with the tail not necessarily straightened out as much as it could be, the figure measures approximately 23.5 cm long.

If we consider that an adult Dilophosaurus wetherilli was about 6 metres in length, then this makes the Rebor figures approximately 1:25 scale models.
