Papo Oviraptor alternate colour scheme?
« on: January 16, 2013, 01:34:35 AM »


Seeing this alternate promotional image for the Papo oviraptor has always confused me. Is it a second paint job for the figure (like Papo did with the velociraptor) or was this just a new artwork created as a promo but the paintjob on the figure itself remains the same? I have never seen a Papo oviraptor toy anywhere on the web with this paintjob before.

Can someone clarify this?

And yes, I am aware this colour scheme was inspired by a painting by a certain paleoartist whose name escapes me :)

i have no idea but i hope ifever Papo would remake that Oviraptor, they'd put feathers on it and ditch the egg.

"running out of space" is a lame excuse for not getting a figure you like.

This was the original prototype image used as a stock photo for the Oviraptor. The final product never looked like this.

Correct. I've never seen the Papoviraptor with this proto paint job anywhere else but on Papo's site (and on the sites of some of their affiliates, though  the stock picture was usually quickly replaced when the final product looked a lot different). I certainly don't know of any "live" samples sporting these colours, though I wouldn't mind seeing it in the flesh.

Okay, thanks for the clarification :)
