The only thing I'm unhappy about, with regards to the list, is the Lego Pteranodon skeleton.  I find it somewhat depressing to have an animal represented as dead.  I would prefer a living Lego Pteranodon to be used.  But I accept @Loon has the final say.

I chose that one, since most Lego dinosaurs are Jurassic Park/World inspired. Also, I think it'd be a good bit of variety as we already have a live pterosaur on the list.

I'm not sure about the resin kits yet. But Shane's recent Baryonyx resin kit comes to mind for an icon of recent times. Either way I won't fuss about it past this.

Im not overly fond of skeletal figures myself, but given how many reviews there are on the DTB, from Safari to Favorite and to Sideshow, I think including the LEGO Pteranodon was a good idea.

Thanks to @Patrx for creating all the new icons, to everyone for your many excellent suggestions, and to @Loon for compiling the final list. The new icons are now live!

Im really happy of how the new icons turned out! They really needed to be updated.

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.

Nice choices everyone; not all of them were my personal first choices, but what matters is that the icons were updated (which as Killekor says, was a needed change  :) )

Regarding the LEGO skeletal Pteranodon; I don't like skeletal figures, but I can understand why it and not the regular version was chosen for the 'Other toys and collectibles' section, as I don't know of anyone here who collects skeletal figures as part of their main prehistoric collection, whereas there are a few who would include the regular Pterandon in said collection.

I just wanted to say I really like the new updated icons, and of course I'm also glad to see some of my favorite figures have been represented too.

The new icons are looking nice! But I would like to ask, what is that hadrosaur on the Dinosaurs on Paleontology section?

Just a request; could someone put the final list of icons in the original post of this thread? It currently isn't in a particularly convenient place  :-\

@Ravonium I've done that now.  I had to add my opinion on the skeleton there too.  @Patrx is the Beasts of the Mesozoic Velociraptor actually the Creative Beast Velociraptor resin kit?: http://stores.dansdinosaurs.com/velociraptor-resin-kit-by-creativebeast/

Quite right! It was a good high-res photo on a stark background, ideal for the icon.
