I too regularly mine @Halichoeres's thread for scales.  It's a very useful resource indeed and thanks to him for giving it to us.

....
Nice setup! How do you decide who gets to go on the top shelf?
........I used your collection thread as reference for some scales I didn't knew.....

I'm very glad you find it useful!

A good pair. I think that is one of the best of the minis. I might get my own large Spinops in the post next week!

Beautiful and beautiful acquisitions, precisely those two dinosaurs are very rare in the toy market. It is a successful acquisition of prehistoric animals. The rare figures in the market of collecting in this case for me is PNSO or in the toy market are the priorities for all collections.

Good choices! I think they'll fit right in to your collection :)

After almost a year without adding anything to my collection I got my first 4 2020 figures:



First off is Edmontosaurus, a figure I was waiting for long time and it didn't dissapoint at all, great sculpt and I like the coloration too. Also it's pretty big, Hadrosaurs are not usually that big, except for PNSO ones or the deluxes by CollectA.




Another classic updated, this Pachycephalosaurus also fills my expectatives pretty much completely, I just wonder why the pose is more like inclined than horizontal, but its still a natural pose and I bet Doug Watson made it that way for a reason.




Tiny Dilophosaurus! pretty great again, I kind of understand if it let some people down a bit for its size and calm pose (being a JP famous dinosaur)  but I love that, specially since it's in scale with most of other safari figures (some also fromn JP fame). It's hands are tiny but so well scupted too!





I love this Deinonychus, probably one of my top 5 Safari figures. I love its color scheme, its pose makes it look so gentle but then you see those claws... whatever it's prey was I'm sure those claws did significant damage. My figure came with some paint scuffs in the back but I think its going to be an easy fix. Mine is standing with its tail off the shelf  also.

I congratulate you on your new acquisitions, sincerely the four figures are all outstanding, highlighting for me above all the deinonychus and edmontosaurus and on a par of equality the pachycephalosaurus. The dilophosaurus from Safari is very beautiful but the only thing that I do not like is its small size, on the other hand it must also be recognized that the dilophosaurus from Safari has a closed mouth which differentiates it favorably from the vast majority of toy theropods of its species. Nice collection of novelties of toy dinosaurs. Good, pretty and cheap and top quality thanks to the top quality work of Doug Watson.

Glad to see activity on this thread again, I've always enjoyed your collection :) I agree on the Dilophosaurus, for me part of its appeal is that it scales well with many of my other dinosaurs.

Yesterday I rearranged my old room were my shelves are almost completely, since I'm using it again probably until the COVID  situation gets better in my country, so I have kind of a new display, I set up a third self and move them so they are all in the same wall.




I'm sorry about the awful paint on the walls, I have to paint this room asap!

This is the view from my bed

Very nice. I love a good taxonomically-organized collection.

Wonderful collection. Love the organization of your figures. Safari's new Carnotaurus seems pretty big compared to their feathered Tyrannosaurus.

The T-rex is 1/35, the Carno 1/30 scale, bu design
 Mind you it's a pretty meaty carno for all that.

I like the way you display many of them facing forwards. I tend to display all mine with a side view. I should make some changes!

Thanks everyone! @ceratopsian  yeah I like to have them facing forward most of the times. It suits really well on ceratopsians and  also saves space but I think sauropods look better sideways most of the time.
