This figure is not a dinosaur but a very felicitous reconstruction of a plant-eating pelycosaur from the Lower Permian period. Once again, Bullyland have proved that they are able to create realistic and authentic figures of extinct animals. I said felicitous because the Bullyland Edaphosaurus is very authentic in many aspects. The skin pattern is very detailed and its colouring is credible, yet perhaps a little bit boring. The shape of the head is realistic; the brim of the sail on the back is red with two red dots in the middle, maybe for intimidation of competitors, maybe for courtship, maybe for physiological reasons.
There is another aspect I appreciate: the reconstruction does not look like it is made of rubber, but because of the colouring and skin pattern, more like a resin version of a higher quality. Altogether I recommend this figure to every collector who is not only fixed on dinosaurs but wants to extend his collecting passion on other extinct animals. A great contribution to every collection!
The figure can occasionally be found on Ebay
