The Schleich Desmatosuchus is a figure that has been retired for a while now. I don’t know why but it has been theorized that it was retired due to lack of sales or being an obscure genus. Either way, whoever retired it is a fool as it is a great figure.
I know of only one other Desmatosuchus in production; the Prehistoric Panorama one. That pales in comparison to Schleich’s offering. The body armor is superbly sculpted, apart from the right shoulder spike being longer than the left one. The body doesn’t have much muscle contour or wrinkles, the only wrinkles are where the tail curves and on top of the neck where he is looking slghtly upwards.
It is a good sculpt, not active while not being stiff like the Toyway’s walking with dinosaurs (WWD) or Schleich’s Baryonyx. This is a good model from Schleich that was retired quickly. Anyone else have a feeling of deja vu? I reccomend this model to anyone who can find it on eBay for less than a kidney.
