I am not a collector of these figures but without a doubt the most beautiful and appealing figures are the fukuisaurus, fukuiraptor and the quetzalcoatlus are great from all points of view.

They are making an adult Ankylosaurus and Bumpy from Jurassic World's Camp Cretaceous this year.

Thanks, @Faelrin! Busy year for Takara Tomy. I'll add that to the top post.

Probably HobbyLinkJapan (https://www.hlj.com/) or HobbySearch (https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/toy/)

Tarbosaurus, Therizinosaurus + a very out of place (and unnecessary) Baby triceratops.

Tarbosaurus:
The head is too small, and very very shrinkwrapped. Kind of strange considering how well fed most of their theropod sculpts are. The tail articulation detracts from the figure as usual, doesn't help that they are rather loose.
The skin details are nice though, the entire sculpt is filled with wrinkles. Ironically, the rest of the body is well muscled, it's nice to see proper gastralia depicted. The arms are appropriately diminutive, and the skull is thinner than ANIA's Tyrannosaurus, which is good to see.

Therizinosaurus: Suspiciously similar to CollectA's standard therizinosaurus, both in sculpt and in colour. The arm articulates at the shoulders, allowing for a variety of diverse poses, though it is to be noted however that the joint feels rather flimsy and fragile. The feet are incorrect, as it only has 3 weight bearing toes as opposed to 4. Not a fan of the green mullet on it's head. Would've much preferred a thin layer of fuzz over the entire animal. The way it's done on the ANIA figure makes the poor thing look like it's suffering from mange.

Triceratops: I have no idea why this was included in this set. Out of all the small oviraptorosaurs, pachycephalosaurs, ornithomimosaurs and paravians of the Nemengt formation, they went with a North American dinosaur. Another mongolian dinosaur would've been much more fitting.

More dreck on the horizon:

Shakurel figures (why do these exist?)

Pteranodon
Stegosaurus
Triceratops
Tyrannosaurus
Velociraptor

More capsule figures:

Allosaurus, Brachiosaurus, and two versions of Tyrannosaurus

Those Capsule ones  look rather JP/JW inspired.

Those Shakurel figures are just another set of weirdos. Although I really want to see them in a movie where Bruce Campbell voices one of them.

 They're all unnecessary if you ask me.

New "ancient seas" capsule figures:



coelacanth
Anomalocaris
trilobite (looks like it could be Olenoides, @bmathison1972 do you have a better guess?)

A little bummed about the coelacanth. I like when the modern gombessa is included in modern sea life lines, but when it's included in paleontology-themed ones it feels like a waste. For one thing, the modern one has no known fossils, exactly zero! For another, ancient coelacanths had such variety in their shapes and ecologies. This could have been an Allenypterus, or a Rebellatrix, or a Miguashaia, or...

PS, if there are any Japanese speakers around, please let me know if the machine translation of the set name is incorrect.

I also assume Olenoides. I plan on getting the two arthropods in the set, even though they are both very common at this point.

I still don't get the obsession with Olenoides. Like there are so many other interesting trilobites out there, yet companies only seem to make this specific genus for some odd reason. This is the 5th figure of the genus to my knowledge, quite a shame really.

Same goes for Anomalocaris. Plenty of other lobopods to choose from.

The coelacanth is just a waste.

But hey, maybe this is an indication of more interesting things to come in the future? Previous Takara Tomy capsule figures were the even more boring juvenile dinosaurs, so this is certainly a welcome change.

With much disappointment, 三葉虫 (San'yōchū) translates to "Trilobite".

I'm not a big fan of articulations myself, but combining this feature with non-dinosaurs gives me the yowie feels ::)

Well I am definitely interested in this set even if there are plenty of toys on these genera by now. Regarding the Coelacanth, definitely missed opportunity to have another Cambrian or other Paleozoic critter, if not a relative like Mawsonia, but it is popular so I get why (even if it isn't a prehistoric creature either).

@Flaffy I agree another trilobite other then Olenoides would have been preferred, and I certainly have a wishlist of genera I want to see made some day. Granted I still like it however. Another relative to Anomalocaris would also be interesting to see but at this rate it seems to be the T. rex of the Cambrian period fauna (in both popularity and apex predator status).

Granted I'm also happy to see this one, what with it being one of my favorite prehistoric animals to begin with and I can't get enough of it. Definitely nice thing to wake up to and see for me.

Also anyone have an idea on the cost of these? Are they part of the Ania line or separate? It kind of looks like the Anomalocaris has articulation but maybe just how it is assembled? If it is articulation this would be the first attempt to give some to the lobes.

The Anomalocaris seems to miss that "head shield" that apparently was a thing for those guys (or it's just not very pronounced, guess we may wait for more pictures) but it seems pretty fun, I like the idea of the articulation!
