Thanks for the answer about the nest. It really makes it an even greater model!

@DinoToyCollector About the name of your company, here’s some ideas:

-Collector’s Fauna (it also works well with the name of your website). :)
-The Dino Toy Collection (same thing that in the above name).
-Paleo oddities.

The first of the 3 names also works well if you want to make also modern animals. Plus, a question: you’ll never make a blue or red footed boobie? I’ll be really happy!

Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

Thank you three already for the suggestions!

@DinoToyCollectorPlus, a question: you’ll never make a blue or red footed boobie?
I'm sorry, but it's unlikely to happen.

Some time ago I asked you all on my social media channels for a suitable name for our dinosaur series. One or the other may have already noticed that out of all the really good suggestions we chose one: Wild Past
This name was surprisingly simple, melodious and leaves us room for future figures. Thanks a lot for your active participation and of course special thanks to thebermuda303, who made this suggestion on Instagram.
If you want to follow the progress of Wild Past, you can do so on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram. News about the models will be found there in the future... or here  ;)

I missed this post, but that sounds like a great choice. I look forward to seeing what you put out :)

It's been a while since I've posted any updates on our little Protoceratops. The little fellow needed some revisions and I was in need for holidays. Both was done and here are pictures of the finished wax model for the tooling. The first bill was paid, so we are getting serious on this  ;D




Yep, the mouth is closed now.

@DinoToyCollector It looks fabulous when you have finished that beautiful protoceratops you know where you have a safe buyer. Do not forget.

The Protoceratops looks really nice. I’m curious to see it painted! When it will be released?

@Shonisaurus  I'll remember that!  ;D

@Killekor The release date... It's not very sure, but I expect it to last another 8-10 weeks. So mid to end of Septembre. Originally, my plan was in late June, but there were many hurdles to overcome and still not everything is 100% clear. So take this statement not too serious. I simply don't know what else will go wrong :D

Hello @DinoToyCollector

I am really thinking of getting myself a 3D printer to print my own models and paint them (for personal purposes, not commercial). From reading through this thread - I assume you have a printer and was wondering if you would be able to give me some pointers on what I need to get myself setup etc..

Thanks :)

........ Both was done and here are pictures of the finished wax model for the tooling...............

Can you explain what the tooling at this stage involves? Is it adding extra detail or preparing the figures for making a mould?

@Justin_  The tooling right now is making the actual metal mould itself (hopefully with all the details - so fingers crossed). The mould is then used for the injection moulding of the little figures. That's the step to be taken this week. I'm really nervous about this. Once it is done there is no way back, unless I do update the model itself. But then there has to be made a whole new (not so cheap) metal mould.

@khallam I myself do not have a 3D printer. So far, a purchase does not pay off and I order my prints at a 3D printing service. For my very small models, I have been looking for a small layer thickness (0,05mm). Printers that are able to print such small details are far beyond the budget of a normal hobbyist.

Just a few thoughts, but you might wish to consider possibly offering a "male" and "female " version...one quilled and one without...or possibly both a standing and a sitting pose as well. Regarding the nest, you could quite easily make it larger, there is fossil evidence to suggest psittacosaurus with more than 40 chicks in a single nest...and since you emulated the psittacosaurus quills, why not similar nesting behaviors?
  The various coloring patterns chosen are attractive, although if you offered both a quilled and non quilled version you could offer the non quilled with a less vibrant paint palette, similar to modern ducks with flashy drakes and more plain looking females.
   It looks like a very nice model, I will keep an eye on this one. Thanks for the mention Halicheroes.

@amargasaurus cazaui
Thanks for these suggestions. In fact, I've been thinking about exactly these things you've mentioned. I would have liked to make 2 animals, but could not realize it for cost and production reasons. Meanwhile, there were a few more agreements with the supplier which probably has a positive effect on future work.
The Nest: My depiction refers to the only true Protoceratops nest found so far. The discovery was published in 2011 and it describes the nest keeping 15 babies, but no egg shells.

It sounds like what was found was a grouping of juveniles rather than an actual nest, with no eggshell present, or other indicators for such...do you have a citation for the paper itself? Were the chicks hatchlings or capable of walking and feeding on their own? With fifteen chicks present that would still be a sizeable grouping

I know Horner described similar "nurseries" at Egg mountain where the chicks were held in a community grouping outside their separate nests, to make attending them easier.

Yep, the paper itself is speaking of juveniles rather than babies. I've read it once again and it says:

- "Here we report on an articulated juvenile assemblage of the dinosaur Protoceratops cf. andrewsi Granger et Gregory 1923 (MPC-D 100/530). The assemblage is interpreted as associated within a nest."
- "While ideal criteria for identifying dinosaur nests may not all be preserved in MPC-D 100/530 (Chiappe et al., 2004), the shape and size distribution of the assemblage of individuals in MPC-D 100/530 argue for its being a nest."
- "First, the animals in the assemblage are young, the same size, and show the same degree of ontogenic development; they are thus reasonably interpreted to be the same age, such as would be found within a single clutch in a nest. Second, the distinctive curved margin on the eastern side of the specimen (Figs. 2, 4.1) is as might be expected in a circle- or oval-shaped nest (contra Thulborn, 1992)."

For the movement: They wrote about the juveniles are oriented to the wind direction, so I guess they were able to move around in that nest.

Here's a picture of the simplyfied model.
