Tokugawa's most recent work for Favorite was the mini dinosaur skull series. I wish they'd use him more, I'd like to see more sets in the vein of the Cambrian series.

Hey, I remember a pic posted here a while back showing a Kamuysaurus - does anyone know if that was an upcoming release or just a one-off sculpture by Kazunari Araki? I want to know if I should scratch it from my wish-list.

I don't recall Favorite Co. revealing any Kamuysaurus.

Araki made one that he showed on Twitter, but as far as I know it wasn't associated with Favorite.

Ah, thanks - I'll cross it off my list.

Another big vinyl model, this one of Carnotaurus:

Unless Favorite starts adding something exciting or new, Iíve lost interest in this line.
I hope they do an entire new line with new species 🤨

Yeah, same. 2016 was such an amazing year from them between the five sets of Fukui Museum figures and the Cambrian miniature series, but since then they've barely managed to sneak 1 or 2 figures into my collection per year. More of the Prehistoric Life line, less of the Dinosaur line, please!

I'm hoping they make more for the dinosaur line!  I'd like Favorite to make Amargasaurus (maybe the first accurate one), Ceratosaurus (there still isn't one I'm happy with), Dilophosaurus (same as with Ceratosaurus) and the Japanese species Futabasaurus and Utatsusaurus.

Where did you get it?

Well, here's the big vinyl Dippy:

I think a more subtle paint job could improve this figure.
