The first batch of new for 2023 CollectA models feature in the latest Everything Dinosaur newsletter. The Collect Deluxe 1:40 scale Mosasaurus has arrived along with Shastasaurus, a replica of a Triassic ichthyosaur. The Cambrian is represented by the arrival of the Anomalocaris figure. It is great to see CollectA introducing more figures of Palaeozoic invertebrates.
The biggest model to be introduced in 2023 is the 1:100 scale replica of the giant Asian sauropod Ruyangosaurus. This spectacular figure is the headline attraction in Everything Dinosaur’s latest newsletter.
Ornithischian dinosaurs are represented by Hadrosaurus and Brighstoneus. Hadrosaurus (H. foulkii), was the first duck-billed dinosaur to be scientifically described that is still recognised by scientists today. Brighstoneus in contrast, was named and described much more recently (2021).
Another dinosaur that was recently described Ceratosuchops (C. inferodios), also has its own CollectA model. The CollectA Ceratosuchops is depicted in a fishing pose. This dinosaur, known from fossils from the Isle of Wight, is thought to have been a piscivore.
The latest Everything Dinosaur customer newsletter also highlighted the two new CollectA marine reptile models. A replica of the primitive Triassic ichthyosaur Shastasaurus was accompanied by the larger, 1:40 scale Mosasaurus model.
CollectA Anomalocaris Model
The newsletter also featured the CollectA Anomalocaris model. A fantastic replica of what is thought to be one of the world’s first apex predators.
Last but not least, subscribers to Everything Dinosaur’s regular emailed newsletter also received news about the arrival of the Triceratops horridus – confronting model.
