Paleodude's Market (Need Model Recommendations)
« on: June 11, 2018, 05:43:36 PM »
Hello everyone, I've been looking for models that best represent certain species and was hoping any of you would be able to point me in the right direction. As well, I'll be adding some various models I have for sale at a later date when I can take better pictures of them.

Models I am Looking For
- Safari Ltd. Kentrosaurus (300629)
- Vivid Toy Group WWD Edmontosaurus
- Invicta Muttaburrasaurus
- Any of the Field Museum exclusive Sue Models by Safari Ltd. (been looking for these ever since I lost my set as a kid)
- Safari Dinosaurs of China (preferably loose as I'm not made of money)
- Safari Ltd. Gorgosaurus (279529)
- Safari Ltd. Leptoceratops (279629)

Most of these haven't been made to my knowledge. There was a Louie figurine from the live action Jungle Book line that was roughly modeled on Gigantopithecus. I think Kaiyodo/UHA made an elephant bird. There are a couple of aurochs figures but I don't know any nice ones except the one by Likaon models, which is pretty pricey. Club Earth's is probably the best toy version, but it might be a little hard to hunt down. Sorry I can't be more help!
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.

Starlux made a cave lion in the 1980's but as I know Starlux made its figures of a very brittle material, so hard to find intact pieces. On likaon I find a beautiful cave lion (it's on the bottom of the available models page), the plae colour really fitting but its price 65 euros.

Jeotar this year made an Aurochs model, his line called Paleo-Creatures. He's a member of this forum, you can check his Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/Paleo-Creatures-857709957609773/?fb_dtsg_ag=AdzIfsyfm3ZHz8frlwSiAzjB5D49kKgKneGMCpvSoEsihw%3AAdwRFF24QvCexrhsDX6g1ZIX75e5Y4BMAK16kMiBQF6ItA

And actually you can buy this figure at Dan's Dinosaurs (USA): http://stores.dansdinosaurs.com/aurochs-finished-model-by-paleo-creatures/

Or at Urzeitshop (Germany): https://www.urzeitshop.de/gb/paleo-creatures/2887-aurochs-model.html

EverythingDinosaur (UK) is also selling a few of Jeotar's models but the aurochs isn't among them.
And I don't know if it will help but here's this site: http://toyanimal.info//index.php?title=Main_Page , where you can search by taxonomy, company or even country. I found on it that Yowies made a bluebuck in its Forgotten Friends series and a few aurochs toy but nothing else. Yowies was an Australian company so you should check with the Australian members and at the Australian ebay.

I hope you will find something you like.

Hi Paleodude,
The species you are looking for are extremely obscure... :o
Further to the others' emails, there is a cave lion modeled by Josť Miguel Aparicio on the following website:
https://www.likaonmodels.com/available-models.html
Likaon models are amazing, especially the ones for extant animals, check them out!
Hope it is of assistance.
