Yes,a Centrosaurus apertus would be nice to see. :D

Don't you hate it when you legitimately compliment someone's mustache and she gets angry with you?

There is an excellent resin Lambeosaurus on eBay right now with the updated rounded crest and the wonderful Ouranosaurus by Max Salas, but these are unattainable to most of the general public.

I second Dinoxels on the Koolasuchus even though there is also a fine resin one, but what Id really like to see is a good Diplocaulus. To be fair, the Play Vision and COG ones are good, but larger size please!

Is there a 'Does anyone make this animal?' thread? I'm not sure if I should post here or there.

An ambulocetus, please pray that a toy / collectibles brand will do in some future.

Thank you Sim!

I suppose, by which you probably know to mean 'i know', that certain popular groups of animals sell well and that leads to them being done again.
Can't believe I forgot Centrosaurus myself, but unlike Chasmosaurus which I loved when I was on a kid, Centrosaurus never had the same 'umph' with me.

The Wild Safari Rhamphorhynchus seems to sell well even though it's outdated, so I'm hoping Safari will make a new Rhamphorhynchus that's accurate.

@brontosauruschuck, I'm not aware of a thread like that existing.

Id also like to see someone churn out an up-to-date Deinosuchus with a correct skull and correct osteoderms. Both the Carnegie and Recur ones are basically just crocodiles.

Likewise, Rebor deinosuchus can meet your expectations when it is available in online sales presumably this year (hopefully not wrong).

Come to think of it, an updated Tupandactylus (or perhaps an actual Tapejara instead) from Safari Ltd would be nice too, aside from the Rhamphorhynchus. I don't think there's any modern figures on this available currently (aka no shrinkwrapping, etc)? And speaking of pterosaurs, I'd like to see CollectA do a new Hatzegopteryx, as their current figure is outdated and doesn't quite capture the updated proportions (particularly the head), aside from the shrinkwrapping it also has.

I agree that it would be nice to see a new Deinosuchus from Safari Ltd as well, as their Sarcosuchus seems very lovely (in addition to their Kaprosuchus). I think Purussaurus is another that could use a figure too.

@brontosauruschuck my collection thread has a list of almost all of the Mesozoic and Paleozoic animals that have been made as toys. I've thought about updating the list (if not my collection) with Cenozoic animals, although it would be roughly 40% Yowie figures.

A new and accurate Rhamphorynchus (or one of it's closest relatives) would be an excellent choice agree. It is one of the four main pterosaurs of my childhood, along with Pteranodon, Dimorphodon and Quetzalcoatlus which all have at least one decent figure unlike poor Rhamphorhynchus.

I'd like any well-known sauropod like a Diplodocus or Apaptosaurus that manages to look genuinely massive at a small size, the way the old Invicta Diplodocus does. I find something doesn't quite work with most Sauropod figures, although the Eofuana Atlasaurus is one exception.

I expect a definitive version of the xiphactinus collecting toy, there aren't many large figures (I don't know any) of that "hell aquarium" fish metaphorically speaking.

My pleasure! I hope it will be useful.

On another note, I would like to see updated versions of the Permian and Triassic animals that companies used to make. For example, Sphenacodon (Marx, Linde, Chialu), Cynognathus (Marx, Starlux, Panini), and Moschops (Marx again, Tootsie Toy, Playskool).

A good Acrocanthosaurus would be nice, it was made by many brands recently, but I still have to find a perfect one. Please, Safari or Eofauna!

Also a Yangchuanosaurus with correct proportions based on CV00216 (the adult one)... instead of  CV00215 (a subadult), on wich everyone seems to base Yangchuanosaurus on.

Im aware that the vast majority of dinosaurs dont have a single figure (let alone good or bad). But there are some dinosaurs that are very important in the history of paleontology that have little to no figures (or no good figures). To put an example, the first serious reconstruction of Deononychus is the new 2020 Safari figure. What about:

Megalosaurus (the first dinosaur ever discovered)
Centrosaurus and Chasmosaurus, the two dinosaurs that give the two main ceratopsidae branchs their names, have lesser figures than, say, Diabloceratops and Pachyrhinosaurus
Anchiornis Im surprised there is still no figure of this creature by any of the major brands, despite being so well known and the fact that its colours are known
Utahraptor, the largest dromaeosaur known.

Another dinosaur I'm waiting for the definitive version of is Daspletosaurus torosus.

I would really like a figure of Mesosaurus. Given its importance outside of paleontology. Also, because it was one of the few prehistoric animals I remember actually learning about in school.

We've gotten quite a few Baryonyx lately but still nothing that I would consider definitive.

@Gwangi what would you say is needed, or has previously been lacking, for it to be the definitive Baryonyx?
