Zuul Dinosaur Model

The Zuul dinosaur model is one of four new figures to come into Everything Dinosaur from the Safari Ltd range. The other three models are the Wild Safari Prehistoric World Albertosaurus, and in the sub-brand “Dino Dana” a Stygimoloch and a replica of the controversial dwarf tyrannosaur Nanotyrannus.

The Gatekeeper of Gozer

The genus name was inspired by a monster that appeared in the 1984 film “Ghostbusters”, the horned monster being Zuul the Gatekeeper of Gozer. The species epithet combines crus (Latin) for shin or shank, and vastator (Latin) for destroyer, in reference to the beautiful sledgehammer-like tail club that was the first part of the fossil specimen to be discovered.

Wild Safari Prehistoric World Albertosaurus

The new Safari Ltd Wild Safari Prehistoric World Albertosaurus dinosaur model is now in stock at Everything Dinosaur. A magnificent and colourful tyrannosaur.

This striking replica of a Late Cretaceous, North American member of the Tyrannosauridae family is a welcome addition to the Safari Ltd model range. This extensive model series already includes several T. rex figures and in 2021, a replica of Daspletosaurus was added to this range.

The model measures 25 cm long (10 inches) and that detailed head stands approximately 11.5 cm (4.5 inches) off the ground. A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that the patterning on the model chosen by the designers would have helped to camouflage this large carnivore as it stalked its prey in the woodlands that were common throughout the Late Cretaceous landscape of northern Laramidia.

Albertosaurus fossils, specifically the nearly 1,150 fossil bones recovered from the Dry Island bonebed adjacent to the Red Deer River in Alberta, provide evidence that this theropod was gregarious and lived in packs.

The type species Albertosaurus sarcophagus was named and described by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1905, the same year in which Osborn named and described the much larger, geologically younger but closely related Tyrannosaurus rex.

The Woolly Mammoth model is an update on the previous Mojo Fun figure, we suspect that this earlier 1:20 scale Mammuthus primigenius model from Mojo Fun will now be retired.

The hair texture and details of the shaggy coat of this prehistoric elephant model have been praised by Everything Dinosaur team members.

“There are lots of Woolly Mammoth figures and models available. It is always pleasing to see a manufacturer updating figures in their range and we congratulate the team at Mojo Fun for their amazing Woolly Mammoth and we look forward to the arrival of their Woolly Rhinoceros.”

Brighstoneus Scale Drawing

By | January 18th, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Drawings, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Team members at Everything Dinosaur have been busy preparing a Brighstoneus scale drawing in readiness for the arrival of the new for 2023 CollectA Brighstoneus dinosaur model. The first of the new for 2023 CollectA prehistoric animal figures are expected to be in stock in a few weeks. As we research and write our Brighstoneus fact sheet, a scale drawing was commissioned so that we could demonstrate the approximate size of this recently described dinosaur.

To read Everything Dinosaur’s article from November 2021 about this new herbivorous dinosaur: New Hadrosauriform from the Isle of Wight.

Brighstoneus Scale Drawing

When scientifically described (Lockwood et al), Brighstoneus was estimated to measure around eight metres in length, and to have a body mass of approximately nine hundred kilogrammes, team members at Everything Dinosaur have attempted to reflect the animal’s size by using a silhouette of a human being to give a visual guide to scale. Readers can hopefully appreciate how our drawing represents the CollectA Age of Dinosaurs Popular model.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur, explained that they were looking forward to receiving this exciting new herbivorous dinosaur replica and confirmed that the first batch of CollectA prehistoric animal figures (with the exception of the 1:6 scale Stegouros and the 1:20 scale Koolasuchus), should be arriving at the company’s warehouse in a few weeks. The Stegouros and the Koolasuchus were due to be in stock later in the year (April/May 2023).

Mojo Fun Woolly Rhino Model

Everything Dinosaur can confirm that the new for 2023 Mojo Fun Woolly Rhino model will be in stock around May (2023). This new replica of Coelodonta antiquitatis will be available from Everything Dinosaur in a few months.

The Mojo Fun Woolly Rhino model will be part of the “Prehistoric Life” series and this replica follows the new version Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) that the company developed recently. Replicas of Woolly Rhinos are amongst the most popular Ice Age figures with collectors, only Sabre-toothed cat figures and Woolly Mammoths tend to be stronger sellers.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are looking forward to receiving the new Mojo Fun Woolly Rhino model. This is the only new figure being added to the Mojo Fun Prehistoric Life range and from the images we have seen it looks a really good Ice Age figure.”

Coelodonta antiquitatis

This geographically widespread species is thought to have originated in Asia (Tibet). Fossils have been found throughout both eastern and western Europe (no fossils found in Ireland). The last of these magnificent creatures died out around 10,000 years ago. Over hunting by humans may have played a role, however, most palaeontologists consider that these large animals were unable to adapt to a rapidly changing climate at the end of the last Ice Age.

It will be interesting to see if that large nose horn has flattened sides. Scientists think the sides of the horn (which was made of keratin), were worn away as the animal brushed snow aside so that it could graze on the sedges, mosses and grasses hidden underneath.

Since its introduction into the CollectA scale model range in 2017 the CollectA Deluxe Dimorphodon model has proved to be extremely popular with prehistoric animal model collectors and fans of the Pterosauria.

CollectA Deluxe Dimorphodon

Having been a part of the CollectA range of scale models for five years, team members at Everything Dinosaur thought they knew all there was to know about this 37.5 cm long pterosaur figure with its articulated jaw. However, we were informed earlier this week that this flying reptile model was created as a 1:3 scale figure.

An Award-winning Pterosaur Model

The CollectA Supreme Deluxe Dimorphodon model has been voted by readers of Prehistoric Times magazine the best non-dinosaur prehistoric animal toy of 2017. One of several awards received by CollectA and their design team for the figures that they have introduced.

A Papo Model Retirement 2023 (Part 2)

By | January 6th, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur can confirm the following Papo model retirement for 2023. Today, we announce that the limited-edition Spinosaurus figure is being withdrawn from the Papo “Les Dinosaures” range, this model is retired and now out of production.

The Limited-edition Papo Spinosaurus

The Papo limited-edition Spinosaurus replica, one of the largest dinosaur figures made by Papo, was originally introduced into the”Les Dinosaures” range in late 2019. Everything Dinosaur team members had seen prototypes several months earlier, but production issues led to delays and a launch orginally planned for the middle of 2019 got put back, initially until October, but it was not until December that year, that dinosaur fans and model collectors got their chance to acquire one.

Everything Dinosaur had already confirmed that the Papo roaring Smilodon and the Papo young Spinosaurus would be retired in 2023, to read our earlier blog post making this announcement: Papo Model Retirements in 2023 (Part 1).

Papo Model Retirement

When the Papo 2019 Spinosaurus was first introduced, it reflected some of the very latest scientific thinking relating to Spinosaurus aegyptiacus. The quadrupedal stance was praised as was the deep broad tail, which was later demonstrated to be quite accurate once a paper had been published describing this theropod’s fin-like tail “Tail-propelled aquatic locomotion in a theropod dinosaur” by Nizar Ibrahim et al (2020).

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur confirmed that this was the second Papo Spinosaurus figure to be retired this year, after the earlier announcement concerning the withdrawal of the young Spinosaurus model.

The spokesperson added”

“The Papo limited-edition Spinosaurus was a real show-stopper, the box containing the model was nearly half a metre in length. The actual model was nearly 42 cm long and that impressive spinosaur sail stood 16.5 cm high.”

The Papo limited-edition Spinosaurus is still available from Everything Dinosaur (whilst stocks last).

Papo Model Retirements 2023 (Part 1)

By | January 3rd, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Press Releases|2 Comments

Everything Dinosaur can confirm the following Papo model retirements for 2023. Today, we announce that two figures are being withdrawn from the Papo “Les Dinosaures” range, models that are retired and now out of production.

  • Papo Roaring Smilodon
  • Papo Young Spinosaurus

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.

The Papo young Spinosaurus dinosaur model originally part of a special edition box set prior to being launched as a figure. The young Spinosaurus model has been retired (2023).

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).

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that a blog post due to go live in a few days would reveal another Papo prehistoric animal model that was going out of production.

Rebor Triceratops Dinosaur Models

These beautifully crafted figures are the first adult Triceratops models to be made by Rebor since the famous “Fallen Queen” Triceratops replica which was originally introduced in 2015 with a second colour variant launched two years later.

A spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur exclaimed:

“These are amazing Rebor models, and each figure does have an articulated lower jaw. We are currently contacting all our customers who wanted to be notified when these remarkable horned dinosaurs arrived.”

Scale Models of Horned Dinosaurs

Scale models of horned dinosaurs are extremely popular with dinosaur fans and model collectors. Triceratops is perhaps, the most popular ornithischian dinosaur of all. These two ceratopsians, the Rebor male Triceratops Trident Horn of Doom and the Rebor male Triceratops Trident King are going to be gracing the model collections of lots of fans of prehistoric animal replicas.
