Ouranosaurus Thumb Spikes

The earlier production run of these models lacked thumb spikes. However, once this omission had been highlighted, the design team at Haolonggood set about correcting this oversight. The digits on the manus (hand) have been remodelled to reflect more accurately the fossil record.

Everything Dinosaur will post up a short YouTube video in the near future that demonstrates how the model has been amended.

Dicraeosaurus Scale Drawing

By | September 17th, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Drawings, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur has commissioned a Dicraeosaurus scale drawing to use in a fact sheet in anticipation of the arrival of the Haolonggood Dicraeosaurus model. The Haolonggood shipment is due to arrive at the company’s warehouse in a few days.

Dicraeosaurus Scale Drawing

The Haolonggood Dicraeosaurus sauropod model has a scale of 1:35. The figure measures a fraction under 36 cm long. It stands approximately 9.5 cm high.

Two species have been named. Both the type species Dicraeosaurus hansemanni and the potentially geologically younger D. sattleri are known from numerous skeletons, many of which are nearly complete. Dicraeosaurus had a short neck, and a relatively large head. The jaws were more robust than those of other diplodocids. It is likely that this sauropod fed on coarse plant material.

Dicraeosaurus is regarded as one of the largest of the dicraeosaurid dinosaurs. Palaeontologists estimate that it grew to a length of around fifteen metres.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that the team members were looking forward to the arrival of the Haolonggood models.

The spokesperson added:

“We expect the PNSO and Haolonggood shipments to arrive at our warehouse on the same day. It is likely that they will arrive next Wednesday [20th September]. We have made plans to ensure we can unpack the shipment rapidly and then get these sets of figures on-line quickly. We have also allocated some time that day to contact all those customers who wanted to be informed when the PNSO and Haolonggood figures arrived.”

By | September 11th, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

A Wild Safari Prehistoric World Therizinosaurus is to be added to the range of prehistoric animal figures offered by Safari Ltd. An image of this new theropod dinosaur model has been included in documents sent to Everything Dinosaur.

The Wild Safari Prehistoric World Therizinosaurus Model

Formally named and scientifically described in 1954 (Maleev), this dinosaur is famous for its huge hand claws. Size estimates vary, but some palaeontologists suggest Therizinosaurus could have reached a length of ten metres and stood around five metres tall. Fossils of Therizinosaurus cheloniformis are rare. This dinosaur’s body shape and size has been inferred by studying more complete specimens of smaller maniraptoran relatives such as Nanshiungosaurus and Erliansaurus.

William explained that the PNSO Livyatan was a superb model. He stated that in his opinion it would not be surpassed. It was wonderful to own a replica of one of the Earth’s greatest predators.

The reviewer commented:

“This is my first foray into the ancient Miocene oceans and I chose wisely with the ancient “Requena”. It is just perfection, in all aspects from the sculpt, to the colour, to the design. Everything Dinosaur delivers with their premier on-line global store.”

Pleased with his PNSO purchase William forgave the visible seams on this large figure and exclaimed:

“It is not a tiny figure, it’s a leviathan of a model!”

The reviewer concluded his comments by praising Everything Dinosaur. He complimented the UK-based mail order company for their efforts in bringing into stock the latest models and figures.

Papo Kronosaurus Video

By | September 6th, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur has produced a short YouTube video review of the recently introduced Papo Kronosaurus marine reptile figure. In this brief video, team members take a detailed look at the Papo Kronosaurus and explain why this figure has a tail fin.

Reviewing the Papo Kronosaurus

Our YouTube video lasts a little over three minutes. We wanted to give model collectors the opportunity to take a closer look at the Papo Kronosaurus replica. The official image released by Papo does not highlight the excellent quality of this model. Everything Dinosaur wanted to create a video and publish photographs to assist collectors with purchase decisions.

Kronosaurus Markings and the Tail Fin

The video begins with the Kronosaurus model being introduced. Comments are made about the figure having a typical Papo appearance. The head and the teeth are examined in detail. The narrator moves on to discuss the flippers and the presence of skin parasites, probably barnacles on the marine reptile figure. This Kronosaurus model has a cloaca.

The video format (chapters):

00:00 – Papo Kronosaurus!
00:48 – Typically Papo!
01:00 – Head and Teeth.
01:22 – Kronosaurus Flippers.
01:51 – Cloaca Watch!
02:08 – Tail Fin Shape!
02:52 – Congratulations Papo.

A section of the Everything Dinosaur video is dedicated to explaining why the figure has been given a tail fin. Tail fins/flukes in the Plesiosauria remains a controversial area. There is some evidence within the fossil record. However, the Plesiosauria is such a diverse clade that there may have been many different shapes and sizes of tail appendage. Most palaeontologists agree, that if a tail fin or fluke was present on Kronosaurus, it probably did not play a huge role in locomotion. The tail fin or fluke would have probably helped to stabilise the predator as it manoeuvred.

Take a look at the YouTube channel of Everything Dinosaur: Everything Dinosaur on YouTube.

Congratulating Papo

The video concluded with the narrator praising the Papo prehistoric animal model range and congratulating the company for producing an excellent Kronosaurus.

PNSO Dunkleosteus Model Reviewed

By | September 2nd, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Our thanks to collector and prehistoric animal fan William who sent in a review of the PNSO Dunkleosteus model. The PNSO placoderm replica was introduced into the mid-size model range in late 2021. This model of a prehistoric fish has proved to be popular with collectors.

A stunning model of a placoderm – the PNSO Dunkleosteus model.

Collector Comments on the PNSO Dunkleosteus Model

William emailed Everything Dinosaur praising this prehistoric animal model.

He stated:

“Zaha is my first ancient marine predator. I decided to dip my toe into the prehistoric past “Zaha” sports the new updated shark like body with a beautiful rainbow trout colour. But what sold me on this beautiful model is the truly accurate articulated jaw.”

Terror of the Devonian

William explained that when viewed with the mouth closed, the armoured skull looks fantastic.

He added:

“If you carefully pinch the lower jaw the real magic happens. Once you draw it downwards to open this engages the jaw’s opening mechanism as in the real-life ancient apex predator.”

This fish was a terror of the Devonian. The jaw action of “Zaha” is described as “smooth” and the jaw when opened displays lots of detail. The reviewer comments that there might be several Dunkleosteus figures on the market, but the PNSO figure is the only one you need to add to your collection.

Praise for Everything Dinosaur

William concluded his review of the PNSO Dunkleosteus model by praising Everything Dinosaur.

He thanked Everything Dinosaur on behalf of the legion of palaeo-figure collectors who valued what the UK-based company does. He commented that the extensive range of figures covered a wide price range. Price points for children as well as adult prehistoric animal model collectors.

Our thanks to William for his Dunkleosteus review and for his kind comments.

New Schleich Dinosaur Models for 2024

By | August 31st, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Six new Schleich dinosaur models have been announced for 2024. These six new figures will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur by the middle of December 2023. Technically, these model introductions represent five brand new figures with what looks like to be a new colour version of the Schleich Brachiosaurus.

Schleich Dinosaur Models

The five new dinosaur figures are:

  • Allosaurus – a Late Jurassic theropod most famously associated with the Morrison Formation.
  • Bajadasaurus – a dicraeosaurid sauropod from the Early Cretaceous of Argentina.
  • Concavenator – a carcharodontosaurid theropod from the famous Las Hoyas fossil site in Spain.
  • Moros intrepidus – a small tyrannosauroid theropod from Cedar Mountain Formation exposures in Utah.
  • Stegosaurus – an armoured dinosaur also most famously associated with the Morrison Formation.

The sixth figure seems to be a new version of the Schleich Brachiosaurus model that was originally introduced in 2017. The Schleich Brachiosaurus figure has been praised for its tactile qualities.

In Stock at Everything Dinosaur December (2023)

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur confirmed that all six dinosaur models were due to be in stock by the middle of December (2023).

The spokesperson added:

“Over the autumn season we expect to be able to post up details of other new models from manufacturers. We expect to be able to announce news of new for 2024 Safari Ltd models. Later in the autumn we will be providing details about new figures from CollectA.”

Moros intrepidus

The early Late Cretaceous theropod Moros intrepidus is an interesting choice for Schleich. Named and described in 2019, Moros is known from fragmentary fossils including teeth and hind limb bones. The fossils were found in sediments representing the lower Mussentuchit Member of the Cedar Mountain Formation. Palaeontologists estimate that Moros lived around 96 million years ago. The apex predator role was still dominated by allosauroids. It was only later that tyrannosaurs took over the role of apex predators in North America.
