Everything Dinosaur team members have continued their series of YouTube videos highlighting the new for 2023 CollectA prehistoric animal models by creating a video that introduces the 1:100 scale Ruyangosaurus, the Brighstoneus and the Anomalocaris figure. This video focuses on the second set of new for 2023 CollectA prehistoric animal models to be announced.

Part 2 of the video series from Everything Dinosaur highlighting the new for 2023 CollectA prehistoric animal models.

CollectA Prehistoric Animal Models

In this slightly longer video than usual (running time about nineteen minutes), we look at the three new CollectA models (CollectA Deluxe Ruyangosaurus, CollectA Age of Dinosaurs Popular Brighstoneus and the Anomalocaris in the Other Prehistoric Animals series) and discuss some of the science behind the replicas.

The Video Contents

The video has a running length of more than nineteen minutes, but it has been divided up into helpful sections so that viewers can skip parts and focus on the areas that most interest them.

The question posed in the video is:

Given the introduction of an Anomalocaris model, what other ancient invertebrate would you like CollectA to make a model of?

We will collate the comments received and pass them onto our chums at CollectA.

Passionate about Dinosaurs

Everything Dinosaur are passionate about dinosaurs and prehistoric animal models. The award-winning, UK-based company exports to over a hundred countries and recently they were interviewed about their export success as part of a project to help inspire others to follow their dreams.

Cheshire and Warrington Growth Hub wanted to highlight local businesses that could help to inspire other companies to export their goods and services. Everything Dinosaur team members were interviewed, and a short video produced. The aim of this project is to help and inspire others to export. Picture credit: Everything Dinosaur.

Everything Dinosaur Helping to Inspire Others

Cheshire and Warrington Growth Hub wanted to help support the drive for exports during International Trade Week and contacted Everything Dinosaur to see if team members were willing to be interviewed about how they sell dinosaur and prehistoric animal models to customers based overseas. Lauren and Emily from Prickly Peach Films were despatched, and they made a short video about Everything Dinosaur’s export success.

The aim of this video, one of a series of promotional activities organised by the Cheshire and Warrington Growth Hub in collaboration with the Department of Industry and Trade (DIT), is to help encourage other companies to open businesses and to export their goods and services.

Passionate About Dinosaurs

Sue of Everything Dinosaur was reluctant to be interviewed but she helped with the shooting of the B-roll as she was filmed and photographed preparing and packing an order for a customer. Mike was given the task of answering the questions posed by the interviewer and hopefully the video will help to inspire others to pursue their passions and develop sales overseas.

Mike and Sue hope their short video helps to inspire other companies to explore export markets. Perhaps it might even encourage young people just beginning their careers to start their own business dealing with something that they too care about passionately in the same way that Mike and Sue are passionate about dinosaurs.

Rebor Tusk T. rex – Inserting the Tail

By | November 3rd, 2022|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

Have you ever had a problem inserting the tail piece into a dinosaur model, the latest Everything Dinosaur YouTube video demonstrates an easy fix using the new for 2022 Rebor Tusk T. rex dinosaur model. How to insert the tail piece into a dinosaur model without the fuss!

How to insert the tail piece into a Rebor dinosaur model (Tusk the T. rex 1:35 scale figure) – here is an easy way!

Rebor Tusk T. rex

The Rebor Tyrannosaurus rex Tusk King T. rex Requiem figure is supplied in two pieces and some construction is required. In our short video (duration five minutes forty-five seconds), we review the dinosaur model and demonstrate ways in which the tail can be securely inserted into the body piece with the minimum of fuss. No glue is required.

To visit Everything Dinosaur’s YouTube channel (please subscribe): Everything Dinosaur on YouTube.

The Transparent Support Stand

Check the Rebor Tusk T. rex box contents carefully. Both the Rebor Tusk and Kiss figures are supplied with a snap-together, three-piece support stand. The stand is quite compact and small, it could be overlooked amongst the model packaging. Assemble the transparent stand and carefully slide it home under the chest of your Rebor figure so that it provides additional support.

The Rebor T. rex Tusk King T. rex Requiem model is supplied with a clear plastic support base, but our models appear quite stable even standing on our office carpet without the need for the support stand. However, Everything Dinosaur does recommend that customers use the transparent support stand provided. Picture credit: Everything Dinosaur.

Why a Tail Piece?

Customers might ask why does the figure have a detachable tail? This is a sensible question to ask, and this is done so that Rebor can reduce the amount of packaging material required for each model. This helps to reduce the use of plastic, paper and cardboard, all part of Rebor’s commitment to the environment.

The Rebor Tyrannosaurus rex Tusk King T. rex Requiem dinosaur model is very popular, to view the range of Rebor models and figures in stock at Everything Dinosaur: Rebor Prehistoric Animal Models and Figures.

Rebor Tusk T. rex – How to Insert the Tailpiece

The next video to be posted up on Everything Dinosaur’s YouTube channel will feature the popular Rebor Tusk T. rex 1:35 scale replica and in this video, we will demonstrate how to insert the tail piece in the body of the Tyrannosaurus rex.

Rebor Tusk T. rex

The new for 2022 Rebor Tyrannosaurus rex “Tusk” King Requiem is certainly a beautiful model. It is a fabulous 1/35th scale figure and in our short YouTube video we plan to look at the box contents, remind customers to take care not to lose the support stand that is supplied with this model and demonstrate how to insert the tail.

To visit Everything Dinosaur on YouTube (please subscribe to our YouTube channel): Everything Dinosaur on YouTube.

The techniques and methods we suggest in the video work for most prehistoric animal figures and for “Kiss” the counterpart T. rex figure that was introduced by Rebor at the same time as “Tusk”.

Transparent Plastic Stand

The Rebor Tusk T. rex dinosaur model is supplied with a transparent plastic support stand to help support this splendid tyrannosaur figure. In the video we demonstrate where to place the stand under the figure to ensure the model is stable when it is displayed.

Bipedal dinosaur replicas can have stability problems, especially if the figure is anatomically correct. In the “Tusk” models that team members at Everything Dinosaur have examined, the figures seem quite stable even when placed on the carpet.

Rebor Display Bases Video Review

By | October 26th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur videos, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products|0 Comments

With the recent arrival of the Rebor display bases “Summer Kisses” and “Winter Tears”, team members at Everything Dinosaur have been busy preparing them for despatch to customers, however, we did take time out of our busy schedule to create a short YouTube video of these fabulous new additions to the Rebor range.

Everything Dinosaur reviews the Rebor non-scale diorama bases, “Summer Kisses” and “Winter Tears”.

“Summer Kisses” and “Winter Tears”

These are the first, bespoke display bases that Rebor have made, and they have been cleverly designed to accommodate a variety of models, bipedal theropods but also some of the Rebor ornithischians such as their Stegosaurus figures.

Rebor display bases
The Rebor non-scale diorama display base “Summer Kisses” provides a home for a pair of Rebor stegosaur replicas.

A Dry Season and a Wet Season

Each base has amazing details, but there is still plenty of room to pose a prehistoric animal figure or two. A large tree stump towards the rear of each base provides additional support for the model on the base. Although the bases depict the same area of prehistoric landscape, their colour schemes are very different. The lush, verdant “Summer Kisses” depicts the area during the wet season, whilst “Winter Tears” with its muted browns and greys depicts the same location but in the dry season when the lack of water leads to a reduction in the amount of vegetation.

A most impressive display. The large tree stump at the back of the display base provides additional support for the Rebor Vanilla Ice Mountain replica. The tyrannosaur has been placed on “Winter Tears” the display base that depicts the dry season. Picture credit: Everything Dinosaur.

Rebor Display Bases

These stunning Rebor display bases are delicate, fragile polystone casts and we advise customers to remove them from their protective foam packaging with care. In Everything Dinosaur’s short video (it lasts just under five minutes thirty seconds), we provide a really useful tip to help customers avoid damaging their display base when they attempt to unpack it.

In our YouTube video, we explain that each box has been opened and the contents checked and then the bases have been repacked with extra cardboard protection. Team members have included a helpful advisory note to assist with unpacking in the box.

Visit Everything Dinosaur on YouTube (we recommend you subscribe): Everything Dinosaur on YouTube.

Rebor Models and Figures

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that the video gave viewers the opportunity to have a really good look at these two bases as well as providing advice and assistance to ensure that the polystone bases were not damaged when being removed from their packaging.
