I hope Papo makes a feathered Oviraptor one year, kinda like what they did with their Velociraptor.

However, I don't see that happening for awhile, as they just released a repainted version of the original one.

They also released a repainted version of their old JP raptor the same year they released the feathered Velociraptor, so never say never!

Looks like Papo will release an Amargasaurus in 2018. In my opinion it looks quite bad if you compare it to the apatosaurus or even the brachio...

Edit: canīt post the image,here is the link.

That is the same reaction that most of us had when they showed the Polacanthus for the first time. I donīt know why Mr. Seo isnīt the one sculpting all papo dinosaurs anymore...

This has to be fake, it is impossible for Papo to realease that monstruosity (this is not a marine repite, is a dinosaur!) And dont say that itīs bad because is made by the polacanthus sculptor. The Polacanthus is milles ahead of that thing that people dare to call Amargasaurus, if it is indeed made by the polacanthus sculptor, then explain me why this "de-evolution".

I agree, the Polacanthus may not be the greatest Papo figure, but it is still way more detailed and better sculpted than this. It more reminds me of CollectA several years back...

That is not a very impressive toy by Papo standards, not at all.

Ah well, at least it’s small.

My first thought on seeing that was that it looked like something from CollectA's dark ages, I cant believe thats a legit Papo product. Interesting that they should take such a step down with something like that in the same year that Schleich is apparently taking several steps upwards. I don't know what to believe in any more.

I actually kind of like it. It isn't nearly as good as the Carnegie, Safari, or Battat amragas but the style reminds me of older Bullyland figures. The only things I don't like about it are the awkward-looking sail and round, wide-open eyes. I'm not planning on buying it but personally I don't think it's that terrible.

It's decent, not among Papo's best but still ok. The size is fine and the colours look nice too. I'm going to pick it up anyway, cause it's a Papo, but I'm a bit bummed that their next sauropod isn't a huge, majestic Diplodocus, I really wanted one for my collection.

You're probably right saying that this one and the Polacanthus aren't from Mr Seo, the quality is suspiciously lower, but maybe Papo wanted to expand their annual offer and Mr Seo couldn't guarantee six or seven new sculpts all at once, so they had to hire another sculptor.

Back to the figure, I don't think it's that bad if compared to other Amargasaurus models, Battat's and Carnegie's aren't any better honestly. If the pics are from a toy fair the figure must be already in production, so possibly another premiere like Polacanthus last year. I wouldn't be surprised to see it released in december. Also the juvenile Spinosaurus seems 100% confirmed as a 2018 release at this point, being there too, and I'm fairly confident that Papo will surprise us with three or four more novelties in their official announcement.

That thing... that thing is nasty.
Looks like something Schleich would produce rather than Papo, I hope this is a fake.

I have to disagree, do you really think that "thing" is better than these much, much more elegant figures? They may not be the greatest thing ever but they are better than "that".

You can't tell that it is worse, detail-wise. These two aren't really good figures if you get out of the mythical aura that both Battat and Carnegie are surrounded. Especially Battat, the sculpt is so shoddy. The PNSO Amargasaurus is an elegant figure, but not any of these, in my opinion.

I find the Carnegie one really elegant and that's why I'm not getting the W.S. that's coming. About this one, the sculpt in the pictures looks not very detailed, and the head looks disproportionate. It's not horrible as some Schleich or early CollectA, but it's not on Papo level.

The Battat sculpt is shoddy? Really? Where are you getting that notion from?

Personal opinion, maybe? Looks shoddy to me, like most Battats do.
