I didn't like the unpainted version, but the final result is nice.

Killekor
Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

I am the only one who is not a fan of the color scheme? It is not terrible but I have seen better....

the colors in the first pic remind me of the old Gatorade logo. ;D

The new Spinosaurus is quite good. However I feel the hind legs are too big compared to the 2014 skeletal reconstruction. Also, the pose is a bit akward looking. As if the poor Spino didn't know how to swim. It also looks to be on the skinny side but this can be forgiven as it's in line with the sculptor's previous work. These are not big issues, still an impressive piece!

Nice model.

Is it meant to be swimming?

Yes, I think so.

That is an interesting little model...the Archaeopteryx looks like it is about to leap into flight! Very dynamic indeed!

The material looks like resin, but it is very well made.

Very nice, and a much more exciting pose than most other Archaeopteryx models!

Incredible. That's probably the best Archaeopteryx model that I've ever seen!

The best way is buying directly on Favorite web-shop through a Japan agent ( http://www.f-favorite.net/SHOP/982789/list.html ).
Dan's Dinosaurs has a Favorite section too ( http://stores.dansdinosaurs.com/favorite-co/ ) and probably he will stock the new figure.

That Archaeopteryx is stunning, looking forward to a review.
Inevitably, underlying instabilities begin to appear.

is it confirmed that the Archaeopteryx is a resin figure? looks plastic on the pic.

Favorite has 9  lines of prehistoric figures:

Soft Models (PVC)
Prehistoric Line (PVC)
Mini Models
Metal Models (discontinued - only 2 figures already available -)
Vinyl Models (large)
Desktop Models
Desktop Trcic Models
Scene Models
Skeleton Models

Obviously Archaeopteryx isn't a Metal, Mini or Vinyl model; also it isn't a Scene or a Skeleton model.
The Desktop and Trcic models come with a wooden base and  Archaeopteryx hasn't it.
So it only could be from the Soft Models or Prehistoric Line: ergo it's PVC.
