The Papo Roaring Smilodon
This figure, with its mane like a male lion and posterior stripes like a tiger, was introduced into the Papo range of prehistoric animal figures back in 2017. Although, it is unlikely that any species within the Smilodon genus resembled this replica, it did prove popular especially amongst those Papo fans who also collected the company’s fantasy figure range.
With the introduction in 2022 of a young Smilodon model, for a short period, Papo had three Smilodon models in the “Les Dinosaures” series.
The Papo Young Spinosaurus
The Papo young Spinosaurus first made an appearance as part of a Papo, special edition box set that also featured the Ceratosaurus dinosaur model. It was later introduced into the range as a stand-alone figure.
Papo Model Retirements
Everything Dinosaur team members produced a blog article about the new for 2023 Papo prehistoric animals back in November, six new figures will be introduced, essentially four new models (Concavenator, Einiosaurus, Kronosaurus and Mosasaurus) and two reintroductions of replicas that had been retired (Archaeopteryx and Woolly Rhino).
