On the other hand, it could fall to the same sculptor(s) who gave us Plesiosaurus and Acrocanthosaurus. In that case it would be roughly the equal of the CollectA Agustinia.

Now watch the Postosuchus suffer that fate!

Those are some really interesting choices, here's to hoping they keep up the trend of their model improvements!
Though nothing will be able to top the Replica-Saurus Baryonyx.  :P

If so, it is not worth buying the Augustinian Schleich 2020 will be much worse than its Collecta counterpart.

If that would happen, it would of happend a long time ago.

Schleich does not give a damn about there Dinosaur models acuracy, its just some of the sculptors they have hired have more knowledge on the subject matter then the others.

A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Huh, interesting lineup for sure.  Fingers crossed they look as good as some of their other recent offerings.  I'd happily buy an up-to-date Postosuchus or Baryonyx from them.  I have a sneaking suspicion that they'll be more Jurassic World-esque though, hopefully I'm wrong.

im not really looking forward to their carnivorous species. for sure they will all have round shaped teeth.

On a hopeful note, sometimes they can be successfully sharpened with exacto knife and file. I was able to do this rather easily with their Spinosaurus.

Although I see it quite unlikely that Schleich makes carnivorous theropods with sharp teeth. Schleich products are intended for children and strictly comply with safety controls to prevent accidents or injuries to children. That does not mean that maybe in the future Schleich makes carnivorous theropods with sharp teeth and cerapsids with sharp horns, it could be done if PVC were very flexible and less rigid as are all Schleich dinosaurs. That could be the solution such as the PNSO spinops with soft and flexible material to give an example.

well, CollectA, Safari, and Papo also target children as their market but their carnivores dont have stupidly rounded teeth. just saying. :)

Yeah, otherwise I would have been quite upset, like you, with what was otherwise a really good model. It's worth making this fix on the Spinosaurus, which now moves from goofy to awesome.

There's at least three possibilities as to what their Agustinia will look like:
1) A normal sauropod, now that the spikes are thought to really be ribs. Unlikely.
2) The wikipedia illustration. Semi-likely.
3) The sauropod with a double row of blades running down its back that constitutes 90% of google image searches. Highly likely.

It's a genuinely interesting lineup from Schleich, I'm keen to see how it all turns out.

I hit a stone against my teeth metaphorically speaking if the result of Schleich's agustinia was as shown by primeval12

I'd sell a kidney ;)

So I assume we will be getting something like CollectA's. Lovely.

Hoping, but not optimistic, for option 1.

Hopefully we are wrong but if the same sculptor of the plesiosaurus of Schleich 2019 is going to be Augustinian, I don't have much hope unless the sculptor has changed for the better.

This day last year was when the Spinosaurus and Animantarx were revealed. Does anyone have images or any new news on any of the new figures?
