Barapasaurus seems more like a taxon CollectA might choose.
But yeah price makes it tricky here.
I still want to get the Paraceratherium, but 70 bucks...
I kind of still want to have some money left for food.
Maybe next year if it is still available.

Eh, you shouldn't worry about that.
Usually i just go to my neighbors house, and i get free food and money for doing absolutely nothing. But you always gotta bring a sharp deadly object  or otherwise they dont give it to you, so thats just a reminder.

They look amazing. Due to the quality of the support bases and the carnotaurus themselves, these figures I think are clearly made of resin or polystone, I have no doubt. They are two very well made figures.

Those carnotaurus together with the parasaurolophus clearly reflect that itoy has improved as a company in an absolute way. They may have changed sculptors because the new figures are far better than all their predecessors by far.

A nice pair of the Cretaceous cheetah.
It's always nice to see when companies who start out with off-brand Jurassic Park stuff diverge into original designs, showing the true potential they are capable of.

Ouch, I alwready own the Nanmu Carnotaurus, but those seem to be even above in terms of quality.
Do we know if they are sold separately ?
I might be tempted

Are they 1/35 ?

Can't find anything on size and price yet, but I-toy does say on their Facebook page that they will not be sold seperately, but as a pair.

Oh ok thanks.
A bit too big for me, but they look amazing.

Is it confirmed that they have an individual base, and that you can showcase them independently ?

Seeing the supreme quality of the product, it does not surprise me that these figures are made of resin. The quality of both the base of the carnotaurus and those of the figures could only lead one to suppose that these figures were made of a noble material. They are very pretty figures. If I had the space and money and a display case to put up these sculpture beauties, I would certainly buy them.

Got the gigantic rhinoceros Paraceratherium model today from Aliexpress. It's impressively big and heavy.

Received the Paraceraherium after ordering right from the beginning.
Took a long time, but it's really a beautiful model.

But we are they lying about the scale?
To sell more models?

If it would be 1:30 or 1:40 instead of 1:35... okay.
But 1:20 when they sell it as 1:35?

Companeys are never faithful to what scale they give there models.   Rebor, Nanmu, Even PNSOs So called 1:35 Scale models are Way too big to be 1:35 They are often 1:30 or Bigger.

The unny thing with I-Toy, Is I think there just using Scale as a Marketing gimmick, as there 1:35 Velociraptor is anything but.
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Who cares? It's a good, big and heavy model and only took a couple of weeks to get to me. I still have not taken the cardboard off its head.

I am so enthusiastic about my paraceratherium from the beginning that I keep the promotional cardboard (the cropped photograph) from the sales box. Honestly speaking, I do not think that any existing toy dinosaur brand can surpass in quality, beauty and size the iToy paraceratherium, it is my favorite prehistoric mammal figure and together with the elasmotherium from Collecta two essential figures for those of us who are collectors of prehistoric mammals.

It is a magnificent model. I sincerely hope that one day the JP based fantasy dilophosaurus will be commercialized.

Received the paraceratherium the other day (unboxed, no base). And by the gods, it is magnificent. Heavy, bulky, beautifully sculpted. I honestly think we have reached peak paraceratherium. Colours aren't anything special, but they went the rhinoceros route there so that is perfectly acceptable, preferable even. It looks great and everything is done with the greatest attention to detail.

Even people who don't have any connection with prehistoric life have positively commented on it.

It is one of the, if not the highlight of my collection. If you can get it for a good price, do not hesitate.

It's always fun to see photos of it next to other mammal figures.
