Everything Dinosaur has confirmed that they will be stocking the recently announced PNSO Qingge the Therizinosaurus dinosaur model. This figure is probably going to be in stock in the New Year (early 2023).

A PNSO Feathered Theropod

PNSO have developed several theropod replicas, but this is their first model of a “Scythe Lizard”. This beautifully crafted dinosaur model will join the feathered Nanotyrannus, and Jacques the Deinocheirus which is currently on the water and expected in stock at Everything Dinosaur in a few weeks (November 2022).

As Everything Dinosaur understands the situation, this is the last PNSO dinosaur figure to be announced this year. The factory was keen to get this model launched and so, there is no beautifully painted life reconstruction as part of the official publicity photographs. Instead, the model has been photographed against a simpler background giving the impression of a forest environment.

The PNSO model has been photographed against a green, stylised background and a more detailed prehistoric scene has not been used in the background – such was the company’s eagerness to get this model announced.

Therizinosaurus Model Measurements

Named and described in 1954 (Evgeny Aleksandrovich Maleev), Therizinosaurus cheloniformis fossils are associated with Upper Cretaceous deposits of the Nemegt Formation in the Gobi Desert (Mongolia). The tyrannosaur Tarbosaurus was coeval (lived in the same habitat at the same time). Qingge the Therizinosaurus will join the PNSO Tarbosaurus (Chuanzi) in the company’s mid-size model range.

The model measures 15 cm tall and has an overall length of 19.5 cm. Although PNSO does not declare a scale for their mid-size model range, we estimate that based on an adult length of 10 metres, this model is in approximately 1:50 scale.

Therizinosaur Accessories

The dinosaur model will be supplied with an A3 Sci-Art poster depicting a life reconstruction. The box will also contain a fully illustrated, 64-page colour booklet and the outer packaging will show a QR code which links to a Therizinosaurus video.

An Articulated Lower Jaw

Qingge the Therizinosaurus will have an articulated lower jaw. It is thought that therizinosaurs evolved from their meat-eating ancestors to become herbivores. Their strong arms with their enormous three-fingered hands and huge claws were used to grasp and pull down branches of trees upon which they could feed. As one of the tallest animals in their ecosystem (notwithstanding the presence of titanosaurs), Therizinosaurus could browse on parts of the plant canopy that other herbivorous dinosaurs could not reach.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur confirmed that a shipment of PNSO prehistoric animal models was already on its way to the company’s warehouse. This shipment includes the new Deinocheirus and Sinopliosaurus figures, but the Therizinosaurus was not ready at the factory when the container vessel had to sail.

The PNSO Qingge the Therizinosaurus is likely to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur in the New Year (2023).
