Not extinct. They are turning more and more to the comic side of figure business.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

Ohhhhh, Bullyland has become so underwhelming. Such a disappointment, but not surprising after last year.

Definitely a descent. While the new  Archaeopteryx is decent and okay, their Triceratops is absolutely NOT, itīs ridiculous and I am really disappointed to see Bullyland doing the same s**t Schleich has been doing for years now, namely releasing boring models of boooring species.
At the moment I am helping some forum members hunting down their fantastic Triassic figures and have these as a direct comparison to the upcoming releases. Itīs really disappointing.

hate to say this but that "archaeopteryx" looks like a badly made china-no-name chicken. the triceratops while being awful too, isnt as ridiculous looking.

They have abandoned the juvenile line and collector to dedicate themselves to the line unfortunately. I long for its ancient figures without going any further three years ago they made the magnificent lambeosaurus.
It is a shame that a company that with its mistakes I liked has virtually abandoned its line of museum dinosaurs, is a great loss for those of us who are collectors of figures of toy dinosaurs.  :(

It is truly sad when a company essentially dies like this and soon falls out of relevance.  :'( *pipes plays softly*  :'(
Hey, ultrasaurus didn't die for nothing. He died for what he believed in: nothing!-Diplocaulus,-2008

Well, they do not die, they just move more towards the comic market. Bullyland figures were not found in many German stores for a while, but that changed when they made more Disney and Pixar figures.

Totally agree the line of cartoon figures report great benefits to Bullyland so it is logical to leave the line of serious toy dinosaurs (intended for both collectors and children) the case is that I commented a merchant that company He did not sell such figures.

On the other hand if the company Bullyland seems to have changed company and it should be that it was not going well financially and I guess that the new traders and entrepreneurs who currently run the brand decided to eliminate costs in production and decided not to redo dinosaurs Of collection independently that when it is changed of company or is sold the franchise is changed as is logical the philosophy as a result of the arrival of the new entrepreneurs.

Yeah, that strikes me as equally likely.

I get the impression that unfortunately the company of Bullyland is not economically good, when it changes so much owner.

The Archaeopterex looks OK. But the Trike on the other hand, has the quality of a Chinasaur. It looks like something you could find an a local Dollar Store.

By the way in shop.modellpferdeversand.de already appear the archeopteryx and triceratops (miniatures) of Bullyland 2017 although they are not yet commercialized, I suppose that soon they will be available you pass the links:

Archeopteryx 2017 Bullyland, seems less bad than the prototype,

The Arch looks cute though not very accurate. It appears to have ball jointed arms, that would be neat.

The Trike is just dull as heck.

Probably Iīll get the Archaeopteryx. It has got moveable wings and a certain charme, although it obviously has many flaws, too.

While it might not be accurate, I like the Archaeopteryx at least.
