Got my Dunkleosteus - it is a soft model. Seems Favorite is trying to expand their "Prehistoric Life" softmodel line- it includes the Mammoth, Smilodon, Dunkleosteus, and Anomolocaris. The Archelon will be joining this line.
It appears that Favorite is not willing to expand their Dinosaur Softmodel line (the Kazunari Araki figures). The only "new" dinosaurs that Favorite is doing are those limited edition museum figures - the Tarbosaurus, Saurolophus, Tambatitanis, and the current release of Concavenator and Pelecanimimus.

There can never be too many new prehistoric animals turning up. ;D
This Dimetrodon is actually good enough to identify as D. limbatus. :)

Ah, Dimetodon.  Sweet! Although getting more non-Dimetrodon, non-mammlian Synapsids would be nice.  Maybe a small series of them.

:D Awesome new Tokugawa models! I guess these are also Softmodels, but I'm not sure.

The Duncleosteus' colours are obviously influenced by my garrattized Sean Cooper model ;D:

I raise you this polish stamp!
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

Awesome! Favorite seems to be expanding its scope rapidly, which I can only applaud. :)

Tambatitanis, is that the new official name for the Tamba Sauropod?

I don't think they're overpriced at all.

you should probably contact brettnj*, who does a great job getting Japanese figures imported for low prices

Yeah Brett could definitely help, though I don't see many of the Favorite figures on YAJ to begin with

At this point of my collector life, I have not a single one Favorite figure. But now I seriously want the anomalocaris and the Dimetrodon.

Oh my, a Dimetrodon !



Facebook link to more pictures:

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.710284429049361.1073741875.480725025338637&type=1

Although, I like Papo's Dimetrodon more....this Dimetrodon is quite pleasant...it looks oddly retro and modern, concurrently.

I've also noticed that there are some impressive pictures of the Favorite Archelon on that page :) :)
