This spikey Chinese stegosaur is hugely detailed for such a tiny figure (about 8 cm long). Kaiyodo has this down to an art and their figures are often tiny but very detailed and highly accurate. The Huayangosaurus figure is part of Kayodo’s Dinotales line, specifically from Series 7, the most recent release. Accordingly it is one of the easier to find Kaiyodo figures.
The bright lime green colour goes well with the chocolate brown plates and spines – the shoulder spines are especially huge. There are red highlights on the body and head. Like most Dinotales figures it arrives in a small number of pieces that snap together – but no glue is required.
The posture is not as dynamic as other Kaiyodos, it’s just standing there with its head down, browsing through Jurassic vegetation perhaps. The tail is raised and bears four spikes like its North American cousin Stegosaurus. The plates along the back form pairs of spikes, unlike Stegosaurus in which the plates are larger and staggered.
It is usually available herefor no more than a few dollars.
