Anomalocaris and Dunkleosteus? That's grabbed my interest. The others are nice choices too.

i hope Colorata makes new dinosaur/prehistoric reptiles again.
2017 is just the beginning of great things in prehistoric figure collectibles. it's been brewing during the past couple of years.

We know nothing yet. Colorata can have really long lead times.

We had such a short lead time on the feathered dinos set that I was pretty optimistic about this one. And the ad clearly says 2017, which is fast running out. But rest assured if I had any new information I would share it here as quick as I could (though, this forum being what it is, someone would probably beat me to the punch!). I do check the Colorata web site periodically, though unlike Kaiyodo or Favorite, they don't seem to have any kind of social media presence.

They do have a Facebook page that is updated ocassionally, but mostly to advertise their ties, shirts, hats, plushes and other stuff. Nothing there on new figure sets.

This is probably a random question, but does Colorata ship to the US?

No. Not at all.

Brett can hook you up, or you can try an order on Rakuten, but Colorata doesn't sell direct except in Japan.

The Colorata sets are frequently available in US via Amazon, too.

Colorata are very common on eBay. They will be shipping from Japan or Hong Kong, but you'll have no problem buying them on US eBay.

FINALLY!

Appears to be available now: "Extinct Animals: Paleozoic Creatures"


Dunkleosteus terrelli


Cephalaspis lyelli


Acutiramus macrophthalmus


Cameroceras trentonense


Olenoides serratus


Anomalocaris canadensis


The URL ends in "ex1," which I hope means there will be more "Extinct Animals" sets in the future.

Olenoides: What's with this obsession of Olenoides? Companies seem to really like to make this trilobite for some odd reason. Strange, there are plenty of interesting trilobites with many special features, why choose Olenoides?
Dunkleosteus: Your average dunkle, nothing to write home about
Cephalaspis: Finally! After all these years a good Cephalaspis figure! I see a lot of different reconstructions of the creature, namely tall broad and thick ones like in WWB, and thin shovel like ones, which one is the better reconstruction?
Acutiramus: Decent "sea scorpion" figure, not in a very interesting pose though, it's been done a lot of times already.
Anomalocaris: Another pretty average figure, not bad by any means, but boring. Wish they used the spot for something more obscure.
Cameroceras: Really like this one, reminds me a lot of Chased by Sea Monster's giant orthocone.

Seems like the Paleozoic Creatures box will only focus on marine life, hope they make another for land dwelling paleozoic critters, so many interesting choices from the Permian. Overall, this box is a mixed bag for me. Mainly due to the species choices and the uninteresting poses.

Nice arthropods; nothing really stands out but the Acutiramus is at least a new genus in toy/figure/model form (even though it is very similar to Pterygotus). I love the pose on the Anomalocaris, and the bases for all of them.
