You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.
In the same vain, if you want realistic prehistoric mammals, you will have to deal with genitals. This reminds me of a woman I saw in the shop at Münchehagen. She picked up an Entelodont, looked at it from the underside, made a shocked sound and then put it back very fast. :))

Thanks for the help!
Is it any good?
As chinasaurs go, yes, it's very good.

Doesn't hold a candle to the real Battat, but a nice alternative if you can't get ahold of the Battat  :)

Thanks again, for the Info!

I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

People are funny. I guess they have never had a pet or have never pulled down their own pants before.

My living room smells like old plastic dinosaur toys... Better than air freshener!

Presumbly they expect "Barbie Doll Anatomy". Or would that be "My Little Pony Anatomy" in that case? Good thing that that issue only exists with mammals ( other than monotremes )...

This is the reason why I prefer to collect dinosaurs and reptilians over mammals :P I prefer my animals to be without genitalia- shoot me, but that is my preference. If there is going to be genitals, at least make it non graphic and tasteful.  Something like a raised bump where its private parts are supposed to be.

Understandable. It is also one of the reasons why I don't collect mammals. Aside from lack of interest, space, etc.

I have a selution

Step one:Cut out a rectangular piece of cardboard or paper.
Step 2: Paint it black and in white letters write CENSORED on it.
Step 3: Place it next to the genitals of the figure.
(Warning: this is just me being funny and should NOT be taken seriously :) )

Censoring nature? :)) I suggest a scenery censor instead, with an object covering said parts. 

Back to topic.
Anyone knows anything about that purple Stegosaurus here:

Maybe we should make a separate thread for that....

Dinosaur King I think.

That is what I thought aswell, but the plates seem a bit small for a Dinosaur King Stego.

Hey there everyone. I have a question. Is there a way that I can give suggestions to companies like Papo or Safari Ltd?

Some companies are more open to suggestions than others it seems. CollectA and Safari have been known to listen to their fans to a certain extent. I have heard that people have contacted them via their Facebook. Anthony Beeson responded to the controversy generated by the Mapusaurus resculpt.

As for Papo, they are a French company so I don't know how successful that would be. I don't know if anyone has ever tried to contact Bullyland or Schleich. Maybe it's a language barrier thing?

Mojo also listens to their followers, mostly regarding extant animals, but i heard they are releasing prehistoric mammals because the fans requested them. (i just hope they improve their dinosaurs/prehistoric reptiles)

"you know you have a lot of prehistoric figures if you have at least twenty items per page of the prehistoric/dinosaur section on ebay." - anon.

Mojo is probably the most opinion-conscious of the major brands. I believe they are new, so they're relying on collector feedback to really set up a good foundation in this market.

As many of you know, there's another forum just like this one (though it focuses more on extant models) who had the chance to handpick the Mojo 2012 kick-off piece, which ended up being by popular vote - the sable antelope.
