It was also pointed out in the psittacosaurus thread that Pannini made a small psittacosaurs as part of their set, however I have never seen one and have no pictures, although the poster in the forum has one.

I have one. It was (also?) produced by Mech and I've seen the same sculpt in lots of chinasaur sets since. I might give it a vote for nostalgia ;)

Is it the same thing that is being called the Playvisions psittacosaurus?

I don't think so. I'll take a photo at the weekend. :) (I'll take photos of the whole set and create a thread for Panini/Mech)

Mine at least looks nothing like for the colors at least....and the sculpt is quite different for mine. My model from the toob is green and has light blue highlights to the frill

No that's the authentic model
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

I can provide photos of the yowsie, the wendys lepto (which is actually a decent model other than being baby blue) the safari toob figures, the dino waurs, and a few of the other more rare ones so far  perhaps the carnegie protoceratops or the Airfix protoceratops......if needed. I am sure Sbell has most of them, but the ones I named at least I know I can do.

Since it looks like suggestions have slowed down and I honestly think all the best are probably already mentioned, I'll be putting up the poll for this topic tomorrow.

The UHA Collect Club Protoceratops from 2005 mentioned earlier in this thread by DinoLord gets my vote for the best basal ceratopsian model. ;D

No, that's from another brand. You can find the Panini Protoceratops here (one of the top figures):

ah thanks Roselaar. (still need to have that ID'd, or maybe it is just an unbraned mini chinasaur)

In this picture which of them is supposed to be the Pannini psittacosaurus and does anyone have one for trade or sale??

This was actually kind of a hard choice - a lot of good little figures in there. This group of dinosaurs has fared better than a lot of others in regards to toys.

I agree. I think I had a harder time voting in this one than I did in the T. rex poll. At least in that poll I already had a list formulated in my mind. Favorite basal ceratopsians? Never gave it much thought, and many of these were new to me.
