So these aren't part of the Dinosauria line, right?
Yes, these are not part of their Dinosauria line, because these busts are DamToys exclusives.

..if you browse the DamToys website, you can't see any of these products because they are Sideshow's exclusive figures sold on the Sideshow web page only even if they are made by Damtoys..
Probably Sideshow did a joint-venture with Damtoys, I don't know..
Yes, they are not under the Dinosauria line but, if a product is sold by Sideshow on the Sideshow web page, it's a Sideshow new product to my eyes even if it's produced by third party, like a commission..

I always saw it as Sideshow was a distributor, as they are the main site that sells their products. Hot Toys, for example, are also distributed in the states by sideshow, but they are a very seperate company.

Accuracy wise it's a little conservative but nothing looks entirely out of the air of plausibility. The lips are a bit small based on Darren Naish's hypothesis but since we don't know to what extent the lips covered the teeth I don't blame them entirely. Plus a piece like this takes at least a year and was probably near finalized by the time Naish brought up the lip hypothesis. All of that aside it's a beautiful piece to be sure with a not so beautiful price tag.

Darren Naish's "bulldog lips" hypothesis is not by any means some kind of accepted standard. Fact based paleontologists like Mark Witton teared it apart some time ago. That goes for most of his 'hypothesis'. The guy dabbles in purposely aesthetically grotesque fantasies mixed up with science and most of his ideas should be taken with a grain of salt, at most. I still enjoy reading his stuff tho

Are you thinking of Duane Nash? Or did Darren Naish also make speculation about lip coverage for saber-toothed cats?

Oh geez. Yeah I was thinking of Duane Nash and his once famous theory: http://antediluviansalad.blogspot.com.es/2016/05/yeah-i-said-it-every-sabertooth-image.html

For some reason my eyes totally misread the name. I don't remember Darren Naish saying anything significant about it tho? I'd appreciate it if someone linked it otherwise. As far as I know, Duane's blog is the origin of this full lipped sabertooth controversy anyway.

Thanks for the link Takama, the best statues by them are the Smilodon and mabye the Styracoaurus bust for me: https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/?manufacturer=damtoys.
Too bad that Smilodon is like what, scale 1:5? Doens't line up well with my 1:15-1:20 kits, altough it's pretty much the same size. But what a great model and price too!

I'm getting V. rex vibes from it. A little too shrink wrapped for me, but then again I can't afford these kinds of things anyways. I do like that the skull is properly thin though.

Man I really don't need any more Carnotaurus..though it does look cool.  Isn't the skin wrong?  It is one of the dinosaurs we have skin impressions from and I've never seen it look like that.

That's beautiful! It has Papo vibes, like if Papo made their Carnotaurus the size of their Baryonyx or Acrocanthosaurus, I think it would have displayed such a level of detail.

I like the bust, not too keen on the 'over-awesomebroification' but still looks nice.
Also am I the only one getting JWTFK trailer vibes from it?

What was said by other members of the forum, carnotaurus would be more spectacular if it were represented in full body and not only by means of a bust, magnificent.  8)

Yeah, the scales don't really resemble what's known.
