It would be great if Brett could track these down and order them!

Wow! These are impressive, although some of them do look pretty bony.

Relatively speaking, I think these are really well done reconstructions of these animals. So is this a brand new series or have these been around in China for some time? This news just came out of the blue!

Unfortunately for me, they're way too large and expensive for it to be worth it to add any of them to my collection. I always wish I had the opportunity to see figures like this in a store before I decide to buy.

I wonder how these are distributed in China. If they're not too hard to find over there I should be able to get them pretty easily...

Are you sure it's Yen?

That's definitely Yen. Given the brand seems to be Chinese perhaps they are marketing them to Japanese collectors?

It's only 167.00 USD for a 1:1 piece.  That's not bad if you ask me.  I'd pay that.

I just returned from China where I had the opportunity to visit the Peking Natural Science-Art Organisation (PNSO) HQ and workshops in Beijing. Their models are very good quality. Be patient, they are just starting out so watch this space for more - their products should become more widely available. I invited them to join the forum and they expressed an interest in doing so, so perhaps they will share details themselves here in due course.

the Ornithopods illustration on the PNSO main page is just breathtaking/beautiful. does anyone know who painted it?

Very good news!  I saw on their page that massive mosasaur sculpture, I've seen it on facebook somewhere. So I had heard of them before..lol

Is there anywhere you can order the 1:1 Anchiornis from?

That's exciting news, I look forward to seeing what they turn out. I think, by the way, that it was really cool of them to start their line with sauropodomorphs and ornithopods instead of the crowd-pleasing theropods and ceratopsians. Although it would be neat to see some of those in the future. The original reconstruction of Zhenyuanlong appears to be one of theirs, a figure based upon that would be awesome!

Didn't Monster House have a bad reputation as a scalper/scammer? I can't remember.

Correct, this seller has been known to manipulate PayPal for fraudulent purposes. They also are known for extremely high pricing, so I would expect these items to become available elsewhere for substantially less.

Dan would you by chance get these figures in your store at some point?  :)

A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

I think it's renminbi. That writing looks Chinese, not Japanese, and the two currencies use the same symbol.

Yeah, it's amazing. I think dinofiel is right that it's Chuang's work.

Thank you for that news! You'll keep a number of us from some very foolish decisions :)

I agree, great choices to start with!
