I agree with the choice of the Papo Megaloceros, my favorite upcoming figure so far...
Well, maybe I like the Safari Edmontosaurus a little bit better...

I like the banner that Pachyrhinosarus suggests, but my opinion is that each of the figures shown in the banner should be by a different brand, because it’s a bit annoying a banner on which 3 of the models shown are by Safari and 2 by CollectA.
Anyways, the figures I would include in my ideal banner would be the following:

- Papo Megaloceros (I think that most of us agree on this guy).
- CollectA Ammonite.
- Safari Ichthyosaurus OR Qianzhousaurus OR Deinonychus.
- Eofauna Atlasaurus (if it counts as a 2020 item, because it has been released in December 2019); if not, Schleich Baryonyx.
- Mattel Callovosaurus.

Killekor
Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
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.

Can agree on the Papo Megaloceros, CollectA Pleuroceras and Eofauna Atlasaurus (it was released late enough that many here will get it this year). For Safari though, I think Edmontosaurus fits the best (though none of the ones you've suggested are bad choices).

I'd also add a BOTM figure to this (my choice would be the Styracosaurus).

In my case Papo: megaloceros or stygimoloch
Safari: edmontosaurus, pachycephalosaurus or deinonychus or qianzhousaurus.
Collecta: Lisowicia bojani or marine invertebrates (in general perhaps my favorite is nautilus) or bajadasaurus.
Schleich: postosuchus or above all and of course baryonyx or maybe (I'll have to see it in person) the ankylosaurus
Eofauna honestly I stay with the two deinotherium oatlasaurus

I threw this together based loosely on suggestions here. I also took the liberty of adding the most talked about 2020 dinosaur release  ;D

I wanted to include the REBOR Spinosaurus but I also didn't want to spend the time the rest of this was to make again just cropping it out of the black backdrop, same for Nanmu. PNSO Dakosaurus and Favorite Mosasaurus were included from last years releases to try and diversify the brands a bit more.

I nominate @stargatedalek's banner as well. I'm like that pretty much every big company is represented; even the #bestfigureof2020, Papo's Giganotosaurus, gets some "love".

I originally had it facing off with the Mattel Tarbosaurus, but I got to BOTM and quickly realized it was unworthy of that spot.

It's not the worst figure in the world, honestly, and my vitriol about it was a bit premature, but, I don't really "like" it. I find it to be a very amusing figure, and honestly might buy it because of how funny it turned out. I think it's the best dino toy meme since the old Carnegie Spinosaurus.

it was unworthy

The giga one is a perfect banner... for April 1st.  :))

I like the one with lots of small figures by @stargatedalek and would use something like it, but there needs to be at least one figure split between the left and right edges, and the design should be less symmetrical. This is so that on large screens it isn't obvious where the repeating pattern ends and begins, and so that both the left and right edges of the banner appear 'chopped off'. On the current banner, for example, the Quetzalcoatlus is split in two. On mobile, only the the left part of the background is visible.

Easy tweak, I still have it saved as a layered version. I'll get on that today then ;)

*edit*



Made it less symmetrical and split the Megaloceros. Removed a couple that felt especially packed in, and the Mojo Apatosaurus.

Cool, would you mind sending me the psd (or equivalent layered) file so I can make some tweaks? e.g. I would like to clean up the shadows and rearrange slightly more evenly. Unless you don't mind doing that as well, but I really would be happy to do it myself.

I use paint.net, a free photo editing program.

The ones I removed from the earlier version are still there, the little check mark next to the layer makes them visible or invisible.
