There are folks here that will gladly pick up the Tawa, even if it ends up looking like a Troodon. It's to fulfill the 'obscure' dinosaur checklist  ;)

Guilty. The only way I won't is if Safari or CollectA or somebody also makes one in 2018.

Ok   someone ACTAULLY OWNS. a retailers catalog for 2018 and she confirmed that YES this list is legit. However I do not think everything is finalized for production so anything you see might be cancelled just like the Plesiosaurus.


She reports that the Dinogorgon is a finalized figure, but the Tawa is just a concept drawing.   So dont get your hopes up for any of these figures.

EDIT

Apparently All the other models Except the Tawa are Finalized.

Yes, but normally Schleich does not show figures in catalogues if they cancel them later.

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

Why did they cancel the Plesiosaurus?! It's like the one model that Schleich could actually do justice....It's as if they don't even know their strengths as a company. SMH.

We have no proof the Plesiosaurus has been cancelled, all we know is that a product page of it showed up on the Schleich website for some time, and was taken down shortly after. There was no image, and the catalogue number was different from those of the current line. It must have been a mistake, the company never announced the release of a Plesiosaurus figure. It might be scheduled for the future, who knows, but we can't say it's been cancelled.

Reptilia has a point.

Thing is, I asked Schelich about the Plesiosaurus on Facebook, and they clearly stated that this was not a product that they were offering.

That would confirm it's been a mistake. Maybe someone in charge of updating the site have put up a random prehistoric animal name to try some layout tweaks, and the thing went temporarily online by accident. Or maybe Schleich's website has been hacked. I would have loved to see a Plesiosaurus from them though, so I'll just keep hoping they'll release one next year and they simply don't want to anticipate their plans to people.

they'd ruin their Plesiosaurus figure by putting white gum drop shaped teeth.

Just because they cancelled the Plesiosaurus, doesn't mean that we will never get one. Maybe in 2019.

Probably Plesiosaur was from the old collection. We are going to have it? We dont know if its still in the plans. The forums that Takama posted mentioned all the dinosaurs are for the first half of the year, probably we will have more dinosaurs like this year with Acrocanthosaurus and Kentrosaurus. Probably the next year we will get a sneak peek of the 2019 line like the new rex, carno and raptor. Im thinking we will get a new parasaurolophus, saichania, spinosaurus and giganotosaurus.

Well, the last Plesiosaur made by Schleich was the Elasmosaurus they retired years ago.

Well someone in STS posted the description of the new dinosaurs from the catalog. This are for the first half of the year.

Dinosaurs

14585 - Velociraptor
> The model is now branded LE on the schleich website. I think the green and yellow donít suit each other, but it is good that the feathers are slowly becoming a thing now!

14586 - Carnotaurus
> The model is now branded LE on the schleich website. I like the slender running hunter type look he has and the color suits well. Of course I make fun of the friggen tiny arms. I like how his tail is carried high and not dragging on the ground and how his scales are so distinct.


14587 - T-Rex
> The model is now branded LE on the schleich website. Overall well made, but I donít like the narrowness of the head, it makes the beast look sort of derpy. I also think feathered T-Rex would work better with this modelís posture.


15000 - Triceratops
> A brown model with red striped on the back and the frill. He is seems to be walking/running and has his mouth slightly open. Well made with nice wrinkles and scales and the horns seem a bit worn.


15001 - Oviraptor
> Well made! I lack the skill to describe the model accurately. It is a feathered dinosaur, with the silhouette of an ostrich, but with an extended tails and arm-wings with two claws, which are held off from the body. It is grey, white, blue and yellow and seems to be screetching.


15002 - Dinogorgon [Shanks]
> A brown snarling beast with black striped down his back and neck. Muscular, but sleek, a tad toyish, but in no way gastly looking.


15003 - Therizinosaurus
> The current model, but with a dull black/grey color and red fringing on the tail and red striped on the head.


15004 - Psittacosaurus
> Green in different shades and with a very curious investigative poise. Has quills on the end of the tail and pink horns on the top and sides of the head.


15005 - Tawa [Skjelg]
> A slender, brown dinosaur with quils along the spine and thin limbs. He looks ver sleek and dangerous and I really really like it.
At least the oviraptor is feathered. I hoped for a new therizinosaurus model. I wanted a therizinosaurus that resemble to the isle, a giant ostrich with sloth and anteater

Assuming this is true of course (beyond the first three with images already), then I have to say I'm still looking forward to the Dinogorgon. Seems like it'll be similar to the thylacine based Kenner Jurassic Park Lycaenops in terms of the color scheme. I'll still have to wait and see once the image(s) of it start to show up, to know for sure. Don't think I'll be interested in any of the others from the way they sound though.

Sounds like my guess was right, or at least very close...

That Tawa would look like a decent companion style-wise to their Herrerasaurus, shrink-wrapped skull and dull colour are perfect.



So the Therizinosaurus is just a repaint? Disappointing.

It will in any case be the new tyrannosaurus rex, carnotaurus and  feathered velociraptor for 2018 not for 2019.

The most anticipated for me (I have faith that they will improve the figures) is the dinogorgon, tawa, feathered oviraptor and therizinosaurus. The triceratops being a well-known figure I'm not so interested.

Ive been dying for a good feathered oviraptor figure and still looking forward to the dinogorgon. Hope these aren't disappointing!

since Oviraptor didnt have teeth (and sharp toothed Schleich prehistoric figures usually suck badly), im hoping that this new figure would be a sure buy for me for next year.

I'm afraid they will mess with the feathering on the fore limbs. At least this year's models aren't promising in that sense.

I hope some of these rumors are true. We need some decent creatures since this years was a bad one.
