Huh, the lambeo really isnt that bad. I might actually get it.
My living room smells like old plastic dinosaur toys... Better than air freshener!

I'll pass on both of these, I think they're pretty poor quality. That is fine though, there's plenty of cooler figures next year :).

Wow. I was excited about Europasaurus, but both models are poor in quality. Not good Bullyland!

I like it  :o. Europasaurus is very nice  ^-^
[Off Nick and Eddie's reactions to the dinosaurs] Oh yeah "Ooh, aah", that's how it always starts. But then there's running and screaming.

I like them both well enough, but the Europasaur's head is just... off. I hope. :-/

Can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually a little more impressed by Schleich's offerings next year than Bullyland's. :-\  I applaud them for picking two unusual species, but I feel both just seem a little off.  Between the two, I think I like the Europa best, though the teeth look a little goofy and I think the forelimbs should be longer.  I'll need to see more photos of the Lambeo for I jump to any conclusions, but as it stands now I'm not liking that yellow color and it looks like Bullyland put the hallux/dewclaw on the wrong side of the feet again!  I'm not even sure if hadrosaurs had a hallux!

Either way--remember when the German companies were the standard? Now they are both, at best, mid-level compared to the other companies.

Bullyland's greatest strength apparently continues to be the willingness to do unusual European figures. Schleich appeals to...people that still like Schleich, I guess.

I think the Europasaurus isnīt so bad. Comparing the (somewhat tiny) pic to pictures of the skull it looks quite accurate, just the area around the eye is very dark making it look bigger. They got the front feet right with just a single claw and the pose is not unrealistic. The skin detail is not 'stunning' but normal, and the paint is a matter of taste. I think they actually havenīt done anything really wrong with this figure. Waiting for bigger pictures though...

The Lambeosaurus for some reason reminds me of my old UKRD dinos... Mabye just the color though.

I just realized--at least the skiin texture looks better here than on their Spinophorosaurus!

I see some potential here.  Nice to see a Lambeosaurus for a change.
