It seems we've got at least one new soft model and one new vinyl model on the way from Favorite this year - an updated Spinosaurus design in the unmistakable Araki style.

Meh, something about it feels a little weird.
Probably the because of the shrinkwrapping?
I don't know :P

I like it, the soft model looks a bit less shrink wrapped than the vinyl to me, at least in the face.

MLMjp posted this image in another thread a while back. I would love if this figure came with that fish (bichir?).

I like the colors on that one a lot, and superficially it looks like a bichir.

The fish looks more like an arapaima to me.

Yeah, I was thinking that too. It looks very much like an osteoglossomorph. The head is very bichir-like, but the dorsal fin isn't subdivided.

I just looked on paleodb and there are indeterminate osteoglossiform remains known from the earliest Cretaceous of Morocco and the Cenomanian of Sudan. So yeah, I think you're right, Gwangi.

The body does look more like an Arapaima.

The soft model looks alright, but I don't like the stylized proportions of the vinyl.

Thatīs me :)) jajaja

Nice to see another updated Spinosaurus coming out.  Iīm fine with the Collecta one and I donīt think that I will try to get this for several reasons (soft models are too small, not easy to get them online) but for the people that do not like the Collecta offerings now they have another option. Although the skin wrap is off putting. When is Kazunari Araki going to realize that dinosaurs are more muscular than how he depicts them?

I like it. Cool paint job.

Swimming Spinosaurs are all the rage today.

I doubt I'll be getting either, but if I got one it would be the vinyl one because it offers something new (it's size). If I wanted a shrink-wrapped quadrupedal and/or swimming Spinosaurus I'd get the CollectA ones.

Soft model will be around the 1:50 Scale mark. Though thats going by what the past versions have been made in.

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