That's a beautiful repaint. The sculpt is great but Safari's choice of colors is not that great. I still like the factory version but it's kind of drab, this is way better.

As I always say and I know I repeat myself Martin is an artist in repainting and I believe that very few people can emulate his brilliant works.

The repainted in the dinosaurs as I mentioned is metaphorically comparable to the makeup and aesthetic arrangements that we humans make, every human being changes for good if it is groomed and cared for a bit, even with cosmetic surgery. That's what happens with toy dinosaurs and collection Martin Garratt transforms a dinosaur or other prehistoric animal making it a much more beautiful and unrecognizable figure (in this case for good).

How much does Martin charge?

@Syndicate Bias I do not know I have never commissioned any work but DTF members who are clients of yours will know first-hand what Martin charges for "changing" the appearance of a dinosaur or other prehistoric creature.

Very beautiful, though I am not fond of the generic Stegosaurus colours I have to admit it is as usually executed to such an amazing standard

Thanks for showing us the repainted Safari Stegosaurus, Postsaurischian!
Sincerely Iím really impressed by how the model turned out. It looks much better! The different color scheme transformed it from a meh to an amazing model!
Now that I see it with a new color scheme Iíve decided to get it for repaint. Now Iím curious to see the Spinosaurus repainted... Who knows, it could become even better than the others!

Sorry if itís off topic:
@Doug Watson I have a question. Who decides what color scheme will have the Safari figures when they will be released? Thereís some possibility that Safari will re-release some of their figures with a less horrible paint job? Thanks in advance for the answer!

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.

I am the one who comes up with the horrible paint schemes. What I don't control is how the factory translates that scheme to production.

Iím really sorry. Itís sad to know that the color schemes have been badly applied to the sculpts, because the sculptures are wonderful.

I don't want to highjack this thread but just to clarify I didn't mean to say they are all badly applied sometimes if I make the paint job too complicated the factory has to simplify it for production purposes and it is not exactly what I envisioned but that is on me not the factory. For the most part for a mass produced toy I think they do a great job. Some paint jobs just translate better than others. @Killekor please no need to respond.

                                                                           Sophie got "traditional" colours now

Very nice paint job and great photography as usual. Had to laugh at the "traditional" bit. I got a kick out of the comments in other threads complaining about it not being green when there is no scientific basis for it being green. If I had painted it the "traditional" colours the comments would have been "Oh great another green Stegosaurus with orange plates."  :))

  Thank you Doug!  That's right - You can't be everybody's darling :) .

  Actually I wanted the blue colour scheme of my Dinoland Stegosaurus for Sophie, but it didn't work out really well.
  It turned into green with Martin's third try. I'm still sorry for stealing more of Martin's time than necessary.
  Sometimes you can't transfer certain colours from one figure to another. It's not the first time I had to learn that :-[ .

    This figure was hard for me to get. The first order from amazon.com got lost in transit which I was told about two months after I ordered.
     The eBay seller I occasionally use for PNSO figures didn't have it in stock and my order from Minizoo was held back by the customs for
                             about three more weeks. I'm glad it finally found its way to me 'cause it's sensationally beautifullll!!

I really like the plump and relaxed look of the PNSO Ankylosaurus. The Safri Ankylosaurus seems to have the more defined shape of the skelaton. For scientific accuracy I guess it comes down to interperatations on how fleshy the animal was.

"3,000 km to the south, the massive comet crashes into Earth. The light from the impact fades in silence. Then the shock waves arrive. Next comes the blast front. Finally a rain of molten rock starts to fall out of the darkening sky - this is the end of the age of the dinosaurs. The Comet struck the Gulf of Mexico with the force of 10 billion Hiroshima bombs. And with the catastrophic climate changes that followed 65% of all life died out. It took millions of years for the earth to recover but when it did the giant dinosaurs were gone - never to return." - WWD

They are two obscure and beautiful marine reptiles the dakosaurus of PNSO and the plesiosuchus of Safari. The same can be said of the Safari miniatures, among which is the dakosaurus. Nice photo presentation.

                  Shopping with my goddaughter at some toy store, I (as some other members, too) realized that meanwhile Schleich
             is producing quite beautiful ceratopsians. While she was checking fairies and unicorns I couldn't resist taking them with me.

Those are great figures on their own, but comparing with what Schleich had offer in the recent past they are miles ahead! I hope they keep getting better.
