Having received confirmation from Papo, Everything Dinosaur can now release official details of the new Papo prehistoric animal models scheduled for introduction in 2023.
There are six figures to be added to the “Les Dinosaures” range, two new dinosaurs, two new marine reptiles and two re-introductions of figures that were recently retired.
New Papo Dinosaurs for 2023
Papo intend to add two dinosaurs to their range of prehistoric animal models and figures in 2023. A replica of the Late Cretaceous ceratopsian Einiosaurus is due to be introduced in Q3/Q4 of 2023 and there will also be a replica of a Concavenator (theropod dinosaur) added to the range. The Papo Concavenator will have an articulated lower jaw.
Papo Marine Reptile Models
In addition, Papo will be introducing two marine reptiles. The Mosasaurus figure which was originally scheduled for launch this year (2022) is now scheduled for introduction in early 2023 (quarter 1), whilst the long rumoured Kronosaurus will be added to the range later next year.
Both the Papo Mosasaurus and the Papo Kronosaurus models will have articulated lower jaws.
Papo Prehistoric Animal Models
In addition to the four new model sculpts planned for 2023. Papo intend to re-introduce recently retired, prehistoric animals. Two reissues are planned, the Papo Archaeopteryx which was originally launched in 2014 and subsequently retired in 2018 and the Papo Woolly Rhinoceros which was introduced in 2013.
Both the Papo Woolly Rhinoceros figure and the Papo Archaeopteryx are scheduled to be available early in 2023 (quarter 1 of 2023).
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that it was good to see Papo increasing the number of new prehistoric animal figures, although they were not able to comment on any potential retirements from the “Les Dinosaures” range.
When asked about the introduction of the Archaeopteryx and the Coelodonta (Woolly Rhinoceros), the spokesperson commented:
“The introduction of previously retired Papo figures gives dinosaur fans and model collectors the opportunity to add these figures to their collections, if they had missed out first time around.”
