Mirificus Studios Poll: Top Sauropodomorph?
« on: September 10, 2017, 06:09:45 AM »
I hope to use this poll, and others like it, to gauge what types of creatures folks would like to see made for my (hopefully one day available) Mirificus Studios line of figures.  Keep in mind larger species will be made at 1:40 scale, and those smaller than 6 meters/20 feet in life will likely be made at larger scales (1:20, 1:6, 1:2, etc.).  If you want a species not listed here, please write your suggestion in the comments.

Have fun voting!  :D

Curious why Omeisaurus is in quotes...is it being revised or otherwise invalidated?
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

The best figure of every species, according to me: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=3390.0

I'm curious about that too.  Reviewing The Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs, Mickey Mortimer comments that Gregory Paul said tianfuensis is "too different" to be a species of Omeisaurus, but that his reasoning is ambiguous: http://theropoddatabase.blogspot.co.uk/2010/10/princeton-field-guide-to-dinosaurs_08.html

Outside of Gregory Paul's opinion though, I've always seen tianfuensis classified as a species of Omeisaurus.

Interesting to see Paul wanting to split a genus in two; it seems his usual impulse is in the other direction.

That's exactly the reason.  Should've known better than to blindly trust GSP...  ::)  Fixed.
