I received my two black and white indoraptor from Nanmu Studio and my impressions are as follows:

They are less finished than the Indominus rex of the same company but their details are good. Its texture is great and they are very well sculpted. Perhaps the size is one of the defects that this fantastic creature suffers. But being honest if they are on the scale of the Indominus, obviously they will be figures much smaller than the aforementioned monster from the first movie of the JW saga. Their figures are only collectible and I understand that they are intended for adult collectors. Recommended as long as one likes the JW / JP saga.

The hooves of this creature are stiff and sharp and the tail of my black indoraptor varies with respect to its white version. Their jaws open and close without any problem and both come with a figure of one of the characters in the movie saga that so much like successive generations of children and adults on the other hand their teeth are beautifully sculpted and fortunately are not white and their Ivorian color gives them an image of authenticity. They are remarkable figures but in my case not outstanding as was their indominus of the same brand.

I just received Phil's indeterminate brand triceratops I passed the link to the DTF page with his picture,
http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=6483.180

I can affirm that it is a more spectacular figure than I thought it was very well made, made of hollow rubber plastic material and it reminds me of this year's Triceratops from Mojo and even the Triceratops of Bullyland, of which I have very good memories. It is smaller than the Safari triceratops but the figure is beautifully sculpted. I am very happy with this figure. When I have time, since I am preparing for an opposition as an official I will continue to inform about all my collection such a comko I promised to the members of the forum and I am very sorry not to have a modern camera and mobile phone but you know many of the forum members which It's the reason I do not have it, my love of dinosaurs.

In short, another figure that thickens my collection. Thank you very much Phil.

I just bought from the Store of the Museum of Natural Sciences of Madrid those four wonders of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals of Collecta, 2019 I list them:

The collecta cauiajara is astonishingly a much better figure than what is shown in the photographs, it is not as big as its supreme pterosaur counterparts in Collecta (guidraco and dimorphodon) but it is undoubtedly very beautiful and detailed the hairs on the body They are beautifully sculpted, the same is true of the head, wings and most importantly the right wing is in a dynamic position. Their articulated jaws, if you want them, can be left open or closed without, for that reason, supposing that these jaws give of themselves.

The only thing that has already been pointed by members of DTF that I see as a defect is its head and crest shrillly painted is the defect that in meeting the pterosaur is otherwise a beautiful figure and very cool.

The borealopelta of Collecta is a small figure but it is a perfect figure, detailed from the hyperrealistic point the only defect that I find of the figure and others of the Collecta brand is its cloacal opening whose hole I see it maybe unrealistic (I'm not a paleontologist nor I do not even understand animals (although I love them), but I believe that the sewer openings of other collector's brands are more realistic, but I still have the five stars for scoring.

Collecta's edaphosaurus is perhaps the best figure of the group with difference with a beautifully carved dorsal sail and the most important thing is that the auditory organs are placed in a masterful way and the colors of this synapsid are realistic to an unimaginable extent. His painting is conservative and realistic. It is the edaphosaurus that I always wanted to have in my collection.

The carnotaurus of Collecta is another strong figure of the group. The cloacal opening is more realistic with that touch of paint (at least in my figure) and the details are painstakingly sculpted so that it is another figure of honor plate that perhaps spoils that figure those camouflage paint patterns on his face. For the rest it is a very good figure with a base superior to those of its previous theropods and for the affordable price of the figure it is honestly quite good a recommendable figure and the most important thing for me. Fortunately, it does not have an articulated jaw! Thanks Collecta for this detail! It is the type of theropod that I want in my collection with a fixed base and without an articulated jaw.

Matthias Geiger has done a great job and I sincerely recommend all the figures especially the edaphosaurus and carnotaurus and if possible the caiuajara and borealopelta.

Generally speaking, four stars out of five taking into account the defects that each one of the three mentioned figures caiujara, borealopelta and carnotaurus has as a whole. The edaphosaurus is the best figure followed very closely or at par with its carnotaurus counterpart who gives a thousand turns to the figures of his species such as majungasaurus, rajasaurus and rugops.

This morning I collected the three new Schleich dinosaurs that came in dracorex, diabloceratops and juvenile giganotosaurus. I will comment on the figures.

They have a stamp of 2018 so these figures were manufactured or rather designed one year in advance.

All three are small and beautifully painted.
The diabloceratops is small but not small, with a proportionate head and some details of painting and even fabulous ears, as I can say of all the morphology of said dinosaur. Its horns are blunt to avoid accidents for children. The eyes are yellow but not bulging as shown in the videos and promotional photographs of said dinosaur. His sculpture details are outstanding and his score is 10 out of 10.

The dracorex is perhaps his most perfect bet. Its legs and feet are provided with a tail bent upwards to prevent the figure from losing its balance. Perfect eye colors with a suitable red and details of horns, muscles, plates on the body and wrinkles (in short, sculptural details) perfect one hundred percent a recommended figure as the diabloceratops and its score is 10 out of 10.

The giganotosaurus is the figure of the three "big" figures of Schleich second quarter if we except the plesiosaurus that is the weak figure of the group as a figure the puppy of giganotosaurus weaker than I thought although with details of paint, wrinkles and appearance sculptural good but with blunt teeth and without lips and without visible auditory organs in the head. On the other hand the painting of the legs that would be clown but for its small size (I thought it was a larger figure) makes it look like it has some boots. In any case it is the best Schleich giganotosaurus made to date and the figure is worthy and its score is 7.5 out of 10 from my point of view compared to other figures of other brands, such as Safari, PNSO and Eofauna that have been sculptures of this illustrious carnivorous theropod and exceeding the figures of Schleich.

Sincerely every day I like Schleich more and is confirming that it is one of the best dinosaur brands with its new addictions especially with its spinosaurus, dimorphodon, diabloceratops, dracorex, animantarx and even the juvenile giganotosaurus.

I am with you with your opinion on most of the latest developments from Schleich,  but I am still careful.  There have been many embarrassing fall-backs like the Dimorphodon who had been beaten with an ugly stick.

I'm glad you are pleased with the new Schleich.  My Diabloceratops arrived this week and I like it very much too.

@Libraraptor Although I like it, I agree with what you are saying Schleich's dimorphodon has a forced posture and sculpture and it looks more like a sphinx than a dinosaur if I name it because it reminds me of Julius Csotonyi's paleoartistic work has an amazing resemblance regardless of Schleich's imperfections but we must bear in mind that it is a figure destined mainly for children and the price is quite affordable, which reduces its quality. But I agree with you.

@ceratopsian I am glad that you have received Schleich's diabloceratops leaves Schleich's pentaceratops in shame until Schleich's triceratops 2018 and diabloceratops this year was my favorite ceraptides.

Thanks for the detailed commentary, makes this collection thread quite unique.

Thanks for the comments about your new acquisitions, Shonisaurus!
I absolutely agree with you about them (from what I saw from the photos), and Iíll certainly get both the Diabloceratops and the Dracorex soon!

Killekor
Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

@Killekor I'm glad you like my comments, certainly the two best figures of the second part of Schleich's dinosaurs are the dracorex and the diabloceratops. Sincerely the Schleich giganotosaurus puppy although it is much better than all those who have preceded it, I recommend it to a lesser extent. Schleich is doing a great job.  :)
