In my last review, I spoke about how many of CollectA’s dinosaurs were misses rather then hits, however I also mentioned that there are a handful of dinosaurs that are hits. This Herrerasaurus is one of them.
Herrerasaurus is a dinosaur very rarely represented in toy form, so I applaud CollectA’s choice to make one. They have presented a figure that is surprisingly accurate, especially when looking at the hands and feet.
As you can see, someone at CollectA has been doing their research. The hands have the correct number of digits (as far as I’m aware) and the hallux that would become more reduced in other theropods is still touching the ground (almost). This figure does have downsides though, but it’s really a matter of personal opinion. I guess the head could be considered ugly by some people, but I find it quite charming really – his eyes are a light green with the standard CollectA slit pupils, the rest of his body is a dirty green with darker green stripes.
One thing that I wish to mention is how small this guy is, here is a photo with the Papo raptor just to give an idea of his size. This puts him in relative scale to the rest of the CollectA small scale line.
All in all this is definitely one of CollectA’s better figures. I highly recommend him as he is the only Herrerasaurus figure available and looks good to boot. He should be available wherever CollectA figures are sold, but if all else fails, he can be found online.
