Honestly, the Caviramus from Collecta is very beautiful but I honestly would have liked the painting to be another that mixture of green and reddish / pink colors in most of the body of the figure makes this figure detract in quality. Caviramus with a repaint like Martin Garratt's like the one that ceratopsian caviramus has would increase the quality and beauty of that pterosaur from Collecta

Collecta's painting of the caviramus figure honestly doesn't do it justice.

In this case I don't agree with you.
The Ceratopsian' Caviramus painted by Garratt is simply gorgeous (as always).
But I even like very much the colors CollectA used on this figure.
Sorry.

Have you ever ordered a figure you loved and then realized it was really complicated to display because of its size? I did..  O:-)  ;D


The worst situation was about Favorite/DinostoreUs Compsognathus.
When I first saw it, I was fascinated by the "1:1" scale (actually it's smaller than that..).



The problem wasn't about the statue' size per se ..





The main problem it's about the tail: it's really long and extremely bended to the right side:
(my picture doesn't show that very well  :-[  )




To fit my cabinet, I had to display the statue with the base tilted down to the rear (not levelled).
So the tail is lower than real.



___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


Shane Foulkes Liopleurodon is a gorgeus piece.

Usually it's mounted this way:


(picture credits @Urzeitshop / Martin Garratt)

My Liopleurodon was assembled and painted by Vitali Klatt.
He mounted it upward:





So I had to use the same trick as Compsognathus: a unlevelled base..  :-\
I covered the base with some plastic corals to hide the trick..  ::)



___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


Microraptor hunting Eomaia (1:1) by Sean Cooper





Again the problem is a very long tail:




No solution to the problem: the statue requires a lot of space into my cabinet..  :'(

___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


I firstly saw the Design Toscano "Pterodactyl" (actually it's a Caulkicephalus ) on Amazon.




I didn't notice how big it was:



(please, see the little "Hans" by Schleich on the lower part of images)

That's the cabinet with Microraptor and Caulkicephalus:


(size' problems are less visible due to the wide angle lens used on picture)

___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


On February 2020 I bought a well-known Sideshow piece repainted by Martin Garratt:




I didn't take on count Velociraptor' tail..  >:D




It was a "miracle" but the statue fits the cabinet by an inch..  ::)




___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


Favorite vinyl Coelacanth is really good for its price:




But it's even a big figure:




..so its shelf is a little bit crowded..



___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


Damtoys Smilodon ' problem wasn't its size.




..well, honestly it's far from small but the real problem is the weight.. It's really, really heavy:




So I had to put it in the lower area of the cabinet and the statue isn't so well-visible



___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


Same for older PNSO and Kaiodo: lower shelves because of their heights











___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


For the Sideshow Mosasaur I had to remove one glass shelf from my Ikea cabinet, so I lost the opportunity to show some other pieces over it:

 



___________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________


Kaiyodo Blue Whale is at 1:35; I had to build by myself a custom plexiglass cabinet for it:




___________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________


At Ikea I found a cabinet right-sized for the wonderful M-See Quetzalcoatlus






Exactly the same for the legendary "Rex Mundi" by David Krentz:






___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


Design Toscano Woolly Mammoth was way bigger than I supposed:






Now this big model stand side by side with others giants:

I enjoyed reading your account of problems displaying items that are bigger than expected - especially the problems with long tails!  I try to be careful and think hard about the size and shape before buying - which is why I resisted the fierce urge to buy Urzeit's Microraptor.  I have only one very deep shelf and it is very nearly full.  (It was designed to accommodate the long upright tail of BingNi's Sinornithosaurus.) So why did I just order the new M-See Pteranodon!  I think it will fit in.....

I know the dilemma very well😂
At least you have the space to display them cool collection of yours.
Always a treat to see your collection pics😃

Although I think that I have already commented on it several times in the forum including in this thread, you should be proud of the magnificent collection you have, on the other hand you will have to review your collection like me every day when it comes to dusting and even wipe your collectible and toy figures with a damp cloth. At least that happens to me. Your collection in this case is endless and very pretty, by the way.

Have you counted how many different dinosaur brands of vinyl / resin / PVC or other materials you have in your collection? I believe in any case that you have already mentioned it to me, but you have an endless collection metaphorically speaking, very beautiful.

I'm thinking too about M-See Pteranodon.. I already ordered M-See Mastodon.. so I don't know exactly about adding Pteranodon or not.. (for sure it's a great figure).  :-\

I don't know exactly.
I use Flickr as a sort of catalog but I do not count brands or figures numerically..  :-[

New Acquisition


It seems that PNSO is very prolific this end of year..  ;)


They previously released a Microraptor in a small scale:




But the last one is bigger:






..and better.. PNSO used a very complex colors pattern to show the iridescence on this feathered dinosaur.

It's not an easy task to portrait that pattern on a photographic image; I used a well-know technique to do that ( http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=3562.msg269149#msg269149 ).

That's the result:



Colors on PNSO Microraptor are extremely beautiful on naked eyes (on a sunny day, of course)  8)



Here some previously released Microraptor:

Can you have a comparrison pic of both PNSO microraptors ?
I have the small one - I wish to estimate how big is the larger one.

I love the rippled reflections in the surface they are standing on. Very effective.

Even without the lightbox your photography is still excellent. And what a lot of lovely figures you have. That Apatosaurus in particular looks positively massive

He didn't think Itoy's paraceratherium was so bulky and large. In my case, I don't have Nanmu's apatosaurus or W-Dragon's giraffatitan figures and they are almost up to par with the paraceratherium. Thanks for the comparative photography Robin!

How lucky you are Robin! As per dinotoyblog.com review it is Collecta's best finished theropod to date. Enjoy that beauty. It far exceeds its ceratosaurus counterpart. Its colors are much more vivid and it shows that much research has been done from a scientific point of view when it comes to realizing that beauty. Enjoy that beauty with great health!

New Acquisition


This figure is a really surprise to me: Kronosaurus

It's from an unbranded company from China; but it's really good: solid pvc and a beautiful sculpt.
And I'm a huge fan of marine reptiles.

Here it is:
