I'd much rather get the Safari interpretation of Pachyrhinosaurus. Then again I've never been much of a fan of Battat's figures.

I'm thinking about hiring one of you guys to paint these for me. My only issues are with the colors.

So will it be a re-issue of the entire original line? Minis too?

Because that would be great for so many people.

sorry if I managed to miss it and someone already shared one, but does anyone have a list of what new species to be expecting?

*is overjoyed I already traded off my original series Battats*
but really, I'm concerned this might depreciate the value of the older releases

The re-release of the old MOS Boston series will have all new paint schemes, so the originals should keep their collectors value.

It looks great! Takama, may I make a suggestion for your next dinotoyblog review?... ;)

This is proper news in the world of dinosaur toys, I wonder why it has been so hush hush and has only come to light now that the figures are on the shelves. It really warranted a big buildup and fanfare! Dan and Dan, has there been some sort of embargo on this info? If so, I wonder why.  :)

If you or amargasaurus can edit it.  I be thrilled to review it

Working on your other write ups as I can, but feel free to send it if you do it. I will move it to the front burner for you

Likely to get them all and doubles of at minimium the Gigantaraptor for certain so I can have Martin do one of those up for me. Awesome work Dan, I like them all, and so glad you went with the crest for the Giganta following the discussion on Facebook. I am very excited about these, just wish we had a Target Locally so I could just get out there and take care of business. Thanks for doing this for all the people out there that were clamoring for it.
If you would like please feel free to post the Gigantaraptor into my new thread about Oviraptors, citipattis and yes, gigantaraptor Dan..........

I will end up getting all of these; I'm rather fond of the Battat line and the nostalgic 90s goodness it brings memories of. Unfortunately I think it will be a while before we see the whole line - I called several Targets, and they either only had the Therizinosaur or did not have the line at all.

just going to put this out there, if they do come to Target Canada I would be more than happy to take orders for people without Targets near them

I wonder if the originals will be part of the Terra line as well, since Dan (LoRusso) only sculpted half of them.

I imagine the masters are still around somewhere. Heck even I have a Maiasaura resin master from the first line. Hopefully the new paint schemes will look nice - I'm a huge fan of some of the original ones, mainly the Triceratops and Ceratosaurus.

Got back from Target. Checked everywhere, none were found. I was very very sad :(


Which section of the toy aisles are you finding these at?

From my various phone calls I inferred that not many stores have figured out a proper place to put these on their toy shelves, and that many don't even have them yet. The one I went to had them near the toy cars

I never thought that I would see the day where the Battat line was continued! This is amazing news!! Just so that I know where to look in Target, what aisle where they in? Near what other toys?

Come check out The Paleo Handbook, today!

I found them in the back of the toys, with one of the isles ending in a shelf.

These are making a debut in Target stores (which may take a few days to stock, so don't panic if you don't see them yet). However, it sounds like they do plan on a wider release for the series down the road, and I'm certainly hoping to get them in DansDinosaurs.com in the future. I believe collectors outside the US can rest easy. These few at launch represent just the tip of the ice berg, with more new sculpts on the way. The new paint schemes for the older models are looking brilliant, and are more naturalistic than the originals. My favorite so far is probably the new Triceratops.
