I knew there were two Colorata Quetz figurines, I just didn't know what the name of the exhibit exclusive one was.

You can call it "museum model Quetzalcoatlus" ;)



I'm missing the Colorata Pteranodon ingens and Dsungaripterus weii which come from the "Dino Cretaceous Vol. 1" box.
The Quetzalcoatlus from this box is named Quetzalcoatlus northropi.

It's invisible! ;D

Bandai also made a Pteranodon or two. I have the one in the series where every animal is eating some other animal.
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

For the sake of consistency I won't be adding the Rebor Dimorhodon models. We had the same discussion when we ran the T. rex poll (which I know you were not here for) and decided that it did not qualify as a toy. Rebor when they were active here also repeatedly wanted to make it clear that their products were not toys (even though Rebor constantly compared them to different toy companies). Given the low price point of the Kaiyodo figurines, their popularity here, and their devotion to producing accurate and obscure genera, I don't feel like they should be left out. True, they are not toys, but they are collectible and affordable.

While I do not like the decision, I'm totally understand and accept it.

Well, I got some clear votes then, though it's nice to see that there are quite a few very fine models or pterosaurs, unfortunatly most seem to be made by Asian companies from "not so much toy-like" materials.

It's the same reason why Sideshow statues aren't on the list.  :)

No worries - I was not giving you any grief, I had hoped my smiley face emoticon would show that.

I thought you most likely weren't, although I wasn't sure, as you used a smiley face in your recent post in the Rebor general discussion thread! :))  Thanks for clarifying. :)  And thanks for the photos of the two Quetzalcoatlus too!

In case it's helpful, here's a link to Dr Admin's post in the Top 10 Tyrannosaurus Toys thread where he commented on the inclusion of Rebor and Kaiyodo.  It's Reply #129 here.  I agree with Dr Admin about this.  Also, while Rebor was active on this forum, they said their competitor is Sideshow.

... which still is ridiculous. They're slightly better produced Papo figures (ergo: Toys [but with resin bases]).

Looking at my REBOR Tyrannosaurus next to my Krentz maquette model makes me wonder how on earth they came up  with the idea of being comparable with Sideshow ;D.

You should add the Favorite vinyl model Pteranodon to the list.

Don't tell them that or you may receive some choice words. ;)

Some other figures that are not on the list - but based on the would you vote for them if they were there criteria, i would have to say most members would not vote for them.

The classic Marx Pteranodon & knock-off MPC Pteranodon figures
ROM Pteranodon figure

Having said the above - it was the Marx Pteranodon figure that set me on the road to my interest in Pterosaurs   - so I would vote for it.

You should clarify the "classification" of two of these for the list, as the Dinoriders Pterodactylus was re-released by Tyco for the Smithsonian line as Quetzalcoatlus, while the Dinoriders Quetzalcoatlus was re-released without it's headcrest for the Smithsonian line as Pterodactylus (click!).

Why no mention of the REBOR dimorphodon set? I don't think there is anything better in the market. Unless we are back to regarding them as statues.

They're statues. I explained it on the first page and Adam agrees if you scroll up this page a bit.  ;)
