I'd prefer if the feathers extended the full length of the arm and if the underside was feathered
but its still a great piece

That Therizino needs a repaint, ASAP >:D but the sculpt is good. Very good, even.

If the underside isn't feathered I'm happy..just means when I build one I won't have to cut out so many blasted feathers ! lol

The feathers on the arms and the mo-hawk both bother me but otherwise it is better than I expected.

Id say that falls under creative liberty ;)

Its the arms that bother me, giving them the primary feathers but only on the wrists

Yeah given their ancestry being theropod that's odd...should go out the middle finger right ?  Or just leave them naked all together.  I'm not sure we have feather proof for Therizinosaurus.

Best to give them feathers, the exact extent of which however is up to the artist ;)
As for the arms, if there were primary feathers than the middle finger is a safe assumption,  or at least I would presume they would extend from the wrist to the shoulder rather than the elbow

We have feathers for Beipiaosaurus, an early Cretaceous therizinosaur but no, not for Therizinosaurus itself. Seems likely that it did though.

Little disappointed the tips of the jaws seem to curve inward..forcing you to add some critter to open them up.

Juvenile T-rex by CollectA. It's and adorable little thing, and well sculpted,too. I really like this figure.
