Prehistoric animals you'd like made, ordered by year named
« on: March 14, 2020, 06:02:20 PM »
I thought it could be interesting to make a list of prehistoric animals that we'd like made into a model, ordered by the year they were named.  This could show how long animals have been waiting for a good model representation.  There are a few rules:

1. I'd like to only list species known from decent remains.
2. Resin models and action figures won't count for this.
3. A prehistoric animal can be added to the list if it doesn't have a good figure representation, or if the good representation has been retired, or if it's only represented well as a very small or very big figure.
4. Species will be listed in different colours.  Blue is for animals that have never been made into a model, green is for species that are only represented inaccurately, purple is for species that are only represented well by a figure that's very small or very big, and orange is for species that have a good version but which is retired.
5. Once a species gets the good version it needs it will be removed from the list and added to a list of animals that have a good version made, ordered by year released.


So, please post the species you'd like to see made!  Discussion about species in the list is welcome. :)

I would like some company to make a deinosuchus and sarcosuchus in the future and also a shonisaurus and shastasaurus in a decent size. Although luckily we have Doug's sarcosuchus from Safari, the best sarcosuchus made to date would like it to be a bit bigger maybe twice as much without being made to scale.

I've listed what I'd like to see made as a model.  They are as follows:

1831: Rhamphorhynchus muensteri, Dorygnathus banthensis
1834: Nothosaurus mirabilis
1868: Cymbospondylus piscosus
1913: Plateosaurus trossingensis
1924: Saurornithoides mongoliensis
1940: Lufengosaurus huenei
1943: Thalassomedon haningtoni
1959: Saurosuchus galilei
1963: Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis
1969: Riojasaurus incertus
1970: Daspletosaurus torosus
1972: Gallimimus bullatus
1973: Eudimorphodon ranzii
1974: Zanabazar junior
1979: Torvosaurus tanneri
1993: Utahraptor ostrommaysi, Eoraptor lunensis
1998: Suchomimus tenerensis
1999: Sinornithosaurus millenii
2000: Byronosaurus jaffei
2005: Buitreraptor gonzalezorum, Falcarius utahensis
2008: Austroraptor cabazai
2017: Daspletosaurus horneri
2019: Gnathovorax cabreirai

The year is the year the species was named.  In the case of Plateosaurus, my understanding is that recently its type species was changed to P. trossingensis, that's why its year is what it is: https://bioone.org/journals/The-Bulletin-of-Zoological-Nomenclature/volume-76/issue-1/bzn.v76.a042/Opinion-2435-Case-3560--Plateosaurus-Meyer-1837-Dinosauria-Sauropodomorpha/10.21805/bzn.v76.a042.short

I'll add to the list in the first post species that others have posted soon.

For such a home-grown animal, now that's an exotic choice. I'd love one too!

@Sim Just so you know, I've been compiling a massive list of genera that either have figures still in production but they are inaccurate, retired figures only (accurate or not), or still do not have figures (to my knowledge). I think the color coding idea is a good way to get things across pretty simply and quickly.

Here is a quick preview of what I have put together so far just for the Paleozoic era so far:

Ediacaran:
1947 Dickinsonia (Yowies made one for their Lost Kingdom Series A in 2000. Paleozoo has a 3D printed model of it.)
1958 Charnia (No toys of this, but Safari Ltd made the similar looking Charniodiscus in their Cambrian Life Toob in 2013, although it is now retired. Paleozoo has made a 3D printed model of it.)
1958 Spriggina (Paleozoo has a 3D printed model of it.)
1966 Mawsonites (Yowies made one for their Lost Kingdom Series B in 2001.)
1972 Kimberella (Yujin made one for their Miracle Planet NHK series in 2004. Paleozoo has a 3D printed model of it.)
2007 Fractofusus (Paleozoo has a 3D printed model of it.)
2008 Funisia (Paleozoo has a 3D printed model of it.)
2019 Yilingia

Cambrian:
1845 Cheirurus
1911 Aysheaia (Cog Ltd made one in 2008 for their Dino Horizons Earliest Life series.)
1911 Ottoia (Safari Ltd made one in their 2013 Cambrian Life Toob. Cog Ltd made one in their Dino Horizons Earliest Life series.)
1911 Sidneyia (Safari Ltd made one in their 2013 Cambrian Life Toob.)
1912 Naraoia (Safari Ltd made one in their 2013 Cambrian Life Toob.)
1920 Vauxia (Safari Ltd made one in their 2013 Cambrian Life Toob.)
1935 Tricrepicephalus (Safari Ltd made one in their 2013 Cambrian Life Toob.)
1988
Sanctacaris (Safari Ltd made one in their 2013 Cambrian Life Toob.)
2018 Kootenayscolex
2019 Cambroraster
2019 Qinscolex
2019 Shanscolex

Ordovician:
? Pleurocystites (Kaiyodo made one for their Dinotales Series 3 in the 2000's. I'm not sure what year this was described in.)
1824 Isotelus (Paleozoic Pals has made a plushie of it though in 2019.)
1827 Ampyx
1832 Triarthrus (Kaiyodo made one for their Dinotales Series 3 in the 2000's, and another one as part of the CapsuleQ Paleozoic Era series in 2015.)
1839 Phacops
1932 Michelinoceras (Yowies made one in their Lost Kingdom Series B in 2001.)
1953
Ceraurinella (Kaiyodo made one for their The Study Room series in 2004.)
1977 Arandaspis (Yowies is the only one to have made one to my knowledge for their Lost Kingdom Series B in 2001, and it is a bit on the cartoony side.)
2015 Aegirocassis (Paleo-Creatures made this in 2015, but it is resin.)
2015 Pentecopterus (Paleo-Creatures made this in 2016, but it is resin.)

Silurian:
1825 Eurypterus (Kaiyodo made a figure of this for their Dinotales Series 2 in the 2000's. Paleozoo has a 3D printed model of it.)
1839 Pterygotus (Kaiyodo made 2 figures of this for their Dinotales Series 7 in the 2000's, and one from the CapsuleQ Paleozoic Era in 2015.)
1921
Mixopterus (Safari Ltd made a fossilized version in their Ancient Fossils Toob in 2009.)
1937 Cooksonia (early vascular plant)
2019 Sollasina cthulu

Devonian:
? Hemicyclaspis (Kaiyodo made one for their Dinotales Series 3 in the 2000's. I'm not sure which year this was described.)

1881 Eusthenopteron (Kaiyodo made two color variations in their Dinotales Series 6 in the 2000's, and one in their CapsuleQ Paleozoic Era in 2015. Starlux made one in 1983.)
1887 Drepanaspis (Starlux made one in 1983. I'm not sure how accurate this one is considering its age.)
1894 Cladoselache (Kaiyodo made two color variations for the Dinoales Series 1, and 1-2 in the 2000's. Safari Ltd made one in their 2011 Prehistoric Shark Toob.)

1931 Remigolepis (Paleozoo has a 3D printed model of it.)
1932 Groenlandaspis (Both Yowies [Lost Kingdom Series A in 2000] and Cog Ltd have made one. Not a toy, but Paleozoo arguably has the most accurate one currently.)
1932 Ichthyostega (A bit on the small side, but since it was a small animal probably acceptable. The most accurate is Kaiyodo's 2015 Leaps in Evolution one, which was a museum exclusive in Japan. Other options include Cog Ltd [2008], and Starlux [1983].)
1935 Doryaspis
1949 Kettneraspis (Yowies made one for their Lost Kingdom A series in 2000.)
1950 Psychopyge (Kaiyodo made two color variations for their Dinotales Series 1, and 1-2 in the 2000's.)

2017 Websteroprion

Carboniferous:
1843 Orthacanthus (Safari Ltd made one in their 2011 Prehistoric Shark Toob.)
1854 Arthropleura (The only toy of this to my knowledge is the one from Innovative Kids "Groovy Tube Book Gone Extinct" in 2009. Paleo-Creatures made a resin model of it in 2017.)

I will be gathering/have gathered genera from:
* my post here (with some additions): http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=8419.0
* the Unique Species Reference List maintained by @Roselaar here: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=1369.0
* or from @Halichoeres collection thread here: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=3390.0
* and the DinoToyCollector and ToyAnimalWiki sites.

I will also be compiling a list together for the Mesozoic and Cenozoic (only extinct animals in this case of course), and will expand the above list if necessary, if there are any I might have missed, or others I might be interested in having figures of some day.

I could be wrong about a couple of these (in terms of what has figures and what doesn't, so please correct me if there are issues). Also many of the genera colored orange are not ones I feel need to be remade per se, but I am listing them because they are retired and may be or become hard to get as time goes on, so they may be worth revisiting in the future, eventually.
I'm also gathering the years described from wikipedia and/or Fossilworks, if not the papers themselves, maybe give or take a quick google search too, so if there's anything incorrect, hopefully someone will let me know.

Edit: Hopefully the formatting is fixed now.

I've added to the list a species I'd like to see made, it's Saurosuchus galilei!  I've also added to the list in the first post species chosen by stargatedalek and Loon.  I'll add species chosen by others soon.

@stargatedalek, Hylonomus is a cool species!  You're right, it has been waiting quite a while.  It's currently the oldest species in the list that doesn't have a figure!

@Loon, besides species we've both expressed wanting to see made, I too would like to see Styxosaurus, Dorudon and Ambulocetus made.  The early evolution of cetaceans is fascinating!  Early cetaceans are the only prehistoric mammals I'm interested in having figures of.
I'm not counting figures by Paleo-Creatures. I'm also not counting the figures by Kaiyodo that need putting together.  Some other points:
1. I haven't added some genera you chose as I wasn't sure which species of the genus you wanted made.  Could you please tell me which species you want for the following?: Amphicyon, Arthropleura, Rutiodon, Xiphactinus, Jaekelopterus.
2. You've put the year for the genus which is one way of doing it, I'm putting the year for the species, so some of the years are different e.g. Plateosaurus, Dorudon, Styxosaurus.
3. I don't think Rutiodon has ever actually been made as a figure.  I think the Safari toob version represents Machaeroprosopus validus: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machaeroprosopus
4. I haven't added Australopithecus as there's a figure of it in Safari's Evolution of Man set which is still sold: http://dinotoyblog.com/2016/08/19/evolution-of-man-safariology-by-safari-ltd/
5. I've put Gigantopithecus in orange as there a retired figure of the Disney character: http://dinotoyblog.com/2019/09/09/gigantopithecus-disneys-a-jungle-book-by-just-play/
6. I've put Styxosaurus in blue as I think there's no figure of it.
7. I haven't added Therizinosaurus as its remains are just too poor.
8. A model of Tullimonstrum exists, it's by Medicom.  I've tentatively put it in orange, but I'm waiting for confirmation on whether it's retired and I'll change it if it isn't.
9. I'm not sure I can add Cryolophosaurus to the list. Like you I'd like to see a feathered version of it, but for now I don't feel I can say the Battat, Carnegie Collection and Papo versions are inaccurate.

Are we forgetting CollectA made a Torvosaurus?

@TheRealSpinoRex, no, the CollectA Torvosaurus represents Torvosaurus gurneyi.

@Sim
Very nice Thread idea. I will follow this one with great interest as I've already spotted some genera staying on my Wild Past list  O:-)

1869 Sarcosuchus
1909 Deinosuchus

Given the impossibility due to force majeure of making these two Rebor crocodiles we need some large crocodiles by some company apart from the fabulous sarcosuchus of Safari.

I've added Appalachiosaurus, Shonisaurus and Thrinaxodon to the list!  So far 2005 is the year with the largest amount of desired species!

@Shonisaurus, which species of Deinosuchus and Shastasaurus would you like, e.g. Deinosuchus rugosus, Shastasaurus liangae?  I haven't added Sarcosuchus because the Safari version is a good figure of a decent size.

@Faelrin, I've looked at your post in the thread "What are you still waiting on the definitive version of?", and I have to say you've chosen some interesting species!  I'd only like to list species you'd like to see made.  I can use your aforementioned post to list species you'd like to see made if you'd like?

@DinoToyCollector, thanks!  I look forward to knowing which species are on your list for Wild Past! :)

@Sim I wish the Shastasaurus liangae and the rugged deinosuchus are the most representative as you have indicated. I would like those two scientifically correct and reasonably sized collectible toy figures.

The sarcosuchus imperator by Doug from Safari is very good but I would like a sarcosuchus of the same size as that of the Rebor brand that unfortunately due to production problems is no longer going to be made. Thanks for your quick response.

@Sim You can, but I've added a few to it since the last time I edited it like Longisquama and Cryodrakon. I can trim it to just what I personally want for here (and of those my most desired ones, and only those without scant remains. I'm still working on it though, maybe in another day or two I could have it done), to make it easier for you. I might have the expanded list in a spoiler in case it is still useful for folks because there is still a surprising ton of obscure genus made into figures, but mainly have retired and/or inaccurate figures made (or some none at all. Edit: or resin, etc only and no toys). Unless another thread would be better suited to such a thing?

@Shonisaurus, I've added those two, but with some changes.  "Shastasaurus" liangae has been reclassified in the genus Guanlingsaurus so I've added this species to the list using that name.  From some reading I did Deinosuchus rugosus appears to be dubious, so I've added Deinosuchus riograndensis to the list, this appears to be the species represented by the Carnegie Collection Deinosuchus.

@Faelrin, if you could post your list of species you'd like to see made that would be great!  For genera with more than one species, if you could indicate which species you'd like that would be helpful!  I look forward to seeing your list! :)  With regards to the larger list which isn't only what you'd like to see, I think a new thread for it would be best.

1. I haven't added some genera you chose as I wasn't sure which species of the genus you wanted made.  Could you please tell me which species you want for the following?: Amphicyon, Arthropleura, Rutiodon, Xiphactinus, Jaekelopterus.
1854 Arthropleura armata
1856 Rutiodon carolinensis
1870 Xiphactinus audax
1914 Jaekelopterus rhenaniae
1924 Amphicyon ingens


9. I'm not sure I can add Cryolophosaurus to the list. Like you I'd like to see a feathered version of it, but for now I don't feel I can say the Battat, Carnegie Collection and Papo versions are inaccurate.

I think they're all inaccurate, at least from my novice view. I believe all of them came out before the latest skeletal reconstruction making it more "Dilophosaurus-y". Or maybe it's just that none of them are satisfactory.

Thanks @Loon!  I've added to the list all those species, including Cryolophosaurus.
