Wild Past - New for 2020
« on: January 01, 2020, 05:16:34 PM »
Our own @DinoToyCollector is starting their own line of 1:35 scale dinosaur figures called Wild Past, with the first model, a Protoceratops with nest, due to be released sometime in the next few weeks! The models will be sold directly via eBay for now, though they've looked into the possibility of selling via some of our favorite online retailers in the future.
I don't want to suggest an incorrect timeline for future releases, so I will simply post pictures of the final version of the Protoceratops that is nearly ready for shipment, and I will let @DinoToyCollector add more photos to this list if they think more models will be ready within the year.
Check out the general discussion thread for Wild Past here if you want to look at some of the preview images for other models:

@DinoToyCollector's supply, in preparation to start selling them!

So... it finally happened. I hope everybody had a merry christmas. After hard working days over christmas for me I received a package full of dinosaurs today. So that's a little relief. I bet nobody got more dinosaurs for christmas then me  ;D

I will prepare the last things and will do some close ups soon.

A very nice little model, nice surprise. These photos suggest they are serious with their production. Considering working with online retailers also seems like a serious step. I'd welcome any new 1:35 series if even such a small figure ends up looking this nice!

Do we have pricing?

@DinoToyCollector, do you know how you are planning on releasing/selling these?  I would love to get my hands on a pair.

He's going to have an Ebay listing sometime January-ish, from what I can remember him saying on Instagram. 9-11 € will is about the price right now, and it is limited to 500 pieces.

@Dinoxels
that sums it up perfectly!
@Martwad
I will give information on the "how to purchase them" soon

How much of the fine detail from the original digital model has been captured on the final product?
Are there still individual scales as seen on early 3D printed prototypes?

I was unaware @DinoToyCollector  has a figure line in the works. This looks like quite the beautiful little figure too, and it would be nice to finally have one of these in 1:35 scale. Hope I can get my hands on one if they will be limited in production.

The above images all depict the final production models.

Stay tuned! As I said in the initial post, you can check out the general discussion thread for the other upcoming figures that have already been announced. I simply didn't include them in this "New for 2020" thread because they aren't all finished, and I'm not sure which will be released at what time. All I know is that the Protoceratops w/ nest is ready to go, and that it will be available within a few weeks.

Could always use more 1:35 models. The proto's look great! Looking forward to the next releases.

very nice...I like an emphasis on smaller ornithopods and theropods with that scale size.

I wish them luck, specially if they want to focus on smaller species in 1:35, there is a severe lack of them.

Time to join this discussion myself  ^-^
First of all: I feel very honoured to appear in this part of this forum with my own figures.
A lot of questions had been answered already and will be answered soon (yes, it's all about the pricing and availability).

But there is one question I want to focus on:

How much of the fine detail from the original digital model has been captured on the final product?
Are there still individual scales as seen on early 3D printed prototypes?

@Flaffy
That's the question I have been waiting for and it was the top question for me.
The details are not as good and in a quantity visible as seen on the first prints. Yes, it is not a high end dinosaur figure but it's very good at being a toy. There has been half a year passed since this figure has gone into production and a lot has been learned regarding details and coluring for the upcoming figures. So we benefited a lot from all the issues the production of the Protoceratops gave us to make the upcoming figures even better.

How hard/soft is the figure's material? Any companies you could compare the Protoceratop's 'feel' to?
E.g. Schleich ---> soft

I can fully appreciate that there would be some loss in fine detail with the final figures.

As long as the photos of the Protoceratops figures in the original post are what we will receive, I'm interested. They look very well painted for such small figures. Improvements on future figures sounds great if this is the starting point.
