I'm hoping the lack of visible claws is because of size instead. A new prehistoric toob would be great.

You mean you're specifically hoping for a non-titanosaur sauropod?

I'd also like to see a new prehistoric toob (or four).
Moreso that it doesn't seem particularly detailed (might be the lighting?) and if it's a toob figure it might be any number of animals.

I thought sauropods had thumb claws? Does that not apply for titanosaurs? I'm really curious to what it could be now. It would be interesting to see a tiger like color scheme on a herbivore though.

Oh I see, I misunderstood. I see a fair amount of scale detail on my monitor, at least. Also I would be very surprised if they painted stripes on the legs of a toob sauropod. I think it's gonna be full size.

The vast majority did, but some of the titanosaurs gave up toes altogether and seem to have walked directly on metacarpals embedded in a bunch of non-ossified connective tissue. Those species would have had no claw.

Thanks for the response. I find that fascinating, since I had no idea that was the case. In all honesty I don't know much about sauropods. I'm still learning about them. If it is indeed a titanosaur of some kind, consider me excited. I hope it is a big figure if it is. Well at least "big" like the Apatosaurus was at the very least. I just want to have it lord over my other figures at least.

From the angle at which the torso slopes down from the forelimbs, I'd say it's not Saltasaurus, which had a more horizontal spine. Alamosaurus would be the number one option at the moment, but they could surprise and bust out one of the South American giants, or even something like Isisaurus or Euhelopus.

I prefer new dinosaurs and prehistoric animals that are not duplicates or reissues.

Although tyrannosaurus rex is a beautiful and interesting animal for example I would like to stop making prehistoric animal companies the usual figures even if they are newly created such as Eofauna. We need to publish in the toy market the largest number of new species of dinosaur toys and prehistoric animals.

People who know more about theropods than I do: could that be a therizinosaur foot? It looks wrong for a bird foot, where I would expect the hallux to be pointed more or less directly backward.

Sorry but nah that's a bird, many birds can manipulate the hallux and it seems to be angled around the little hill it sits on. You can see the two legs merge quite quickly so they must be rather short.

I would like to see a Mamenchisaurus made by the same guy that sculpted the Diplodocus.

Also, a Camarasaurus has historical significance and is rather iconic. I doubt WS will skip on the Camarasaurus.

What about the Brontosaurus;)

Camarasaurus gets so little love from the big companies, I want one to be made hopefully in scale with the Diplodocus. I'm very curious about the identity of the titanosaur.

The proportions look to off for any kind of therapod dinosaur. The other two look like a ram and whale so no dinosaurs in this teaser.

"3,000 km to the south, the massive comet crashes into Earth. The light from the impact fades in silence. Then the shock waves arrive. Next comes the blast front. Finally a rain of molten rock starts to fall out of the darkening sky - this is the end of the age of the dinosaurs. The Comet struck the Gulf of Mexico with the force of 10 billion Hiroshima bombs. And with the catastrophic climate changes that followed 65% of all life died out. It took millions of years for the earth to recover but when it did the giant dinosaurs were gone - never to return." - WWD

Darn, probably some sort of chicken then.

The image to the right of the whale looks like a dinosaur's tail, to me it does not look like the horn of a ram.

Might be a Dragon. For it is a horn not a tail.

So, we have a baleen whale, what look like the legs of a dodo bird, and either a mammal horn or the tail of an amphibian. That's what I'm thinking. That is no dinosaur tail.

Bring on the prehistorics!

Why would they make a new Dodo bird when they could just reissue the old one they retired. I think it a chicken or some farm bird. The horn I think is a dragon horn. As they said Farm or Fantasy in the  beginning of their Facebook post.  They don't have to show a prehistoric animal all the time.   ;)

I hope it's not a dodo, even their old one was outdated to make one even more outdated than that would be silly.

Is it wishful thinking that i hope that the Birdfeet could be a patagoptyryx? :)) :))
