Ravensburger Tiptoi New for 2017?
« on: February 16, 2017, 10:19:46 PM »
Ok I was on STS and i found a link to the Tiptoi Website and i found these two
https://www.tiptoi.com/de/tiptoi-buecher-spiele-und-spielzeug/spielfiguren/dinosaurier/index.html






Now i dont know if both of them are new for 2017 or if they been out for a while.

I think it should be easy to tell whats what here.

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

Just when you though that the Schleich Therizinosaurus looked less like the actual animal and more like a kaiju Ravenburguer cames to say:
You think that is a kaiju Therizinosaurus? NO
THIS IS a kaiju Therizinosaurus.

That's the first time I've seen those two.

So two out of three German companies so far have made their Therizinosaurs monsters...Looks like a mix between the real deal and the Dino Crisis Version:

I'm afraid those things'll harm me

And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend

Well, that is the gimmick of those figures.  At least it is not as obvious as on some of the other figureres in line on the Therizinosaurus.

I think it's a draw between Schleich and Tiptoi over these two. While Schleich Carnotaurus is worse than Tiptoi's, and probably the worst Carnotaurus around, the Schleich Therizinosaurus is somehow charming in its kaijuness, whereas Tiptoi Therizinosaurus is utterly horrible. It must have the most oversized feet ever seen on a dinosaur figurine, and those spikes all over the back and head are just pointless. Looks more like an aborted Pokemon concept rather than a kaiju, to be honest.

But am I recalling wrong or Schleich and Ravensburger are commercial partners in some ways?

I couldn't find anything about that, just an article about Ravensburger "proaching" in Schleich's territory.
http://www.schwaebische.de/region/baden-wuerttemberg_artikel,-Ravensburger-wildert-im-Revier-von-Schleich-_arid,5576764.html
Also some people speculating about Schleich producing figures, but Schleich themselves denies.

Aw. Look at that Carnotaurus.
So much rage.
Clenching its little fists in anger.

The Carnotaurus wasn't doing too badly until it got to the feet. I mean, having enlarged feet for stability is one thing, but when you start putting Emu feet on a Chicken, things have gotten out of hand. 

Are you sure that isn't the final painted version of Rebor's Carnotaurus?  >:D

I really want someone to review these monstrosities. They're so frightful, they'd be fun.

They are good figures that will serve as entertainment for the little ones that are destined for this type of figures as happens equally with Schleich or Bullyland. By the way I have not had any figure of yours, by the photos makes me assume that unfortunately the plastic is not of very good quality as can be Geoworld

No. I do have their Camarasaurus. The TipTois are made of solid, massive heavy PVC, very similar, if not even from the same factory to Schleich.

Thanks for the comment that's a good reason to add to my figures the disappearance of the disassembled camarasaurus Carnegie I had been orphaned of that type of dinosaurs and I had never decided to buy their figures. Now is a good excuse

Oh good, a 2017 release I can actually skip to save some money for the huge amount of good stuff from other companies due this year. :)

I am clear one thing if I buy Tiptoi some dinosaur I will buy together the camarasaurus, giganotosaurus and pteranodon. The carnotaurus and the therizinosaurus are pretty bad. But I think they are more finished than those of the Schleich company. What kills them is that damn brand of orange. Totally agree with respect to the figures of 2017 Tiptoi, the truth for collectors of toy dinosaurs with all my respect are not the advisable figures except those exceptions for me of those three figures as the only ones according to my personal tastes as more finished

like most of Schleich's recent prehistoric figures, these are a waste of plastic and cheap labor.
