DeAgostini - new for 2020
« on: April 28, 2020, 04:46:12 PM »
Back and just as bad as ever. Interestingly, these are being marketed in Germany but apparently not Italy or Spain.



Ankylosaurus
Aucasaurus (same mold as Carnotaurus)
Brontosaurus
Carnotaurus
Dilophosaurus
Dracovenator (same mold as Dilophosaurus)
Giganotosaurus (I think it's the same mold as Tyrannosaurus)
Megalosaurus (I think it's the same mold as Tyrannosaurus)
Parasaurolophus
Pteranodon
Pterodactylus (same mold as Pteranodon)
Spinosaurus
Stegosaurus
Triceratops
Tyrannosaurus
Tyrannosaurus, but gold
Velociraptor with perfunctory feathers
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

People are apparently willing to pay nearly 30 Euros for one of those Golden Rexes:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/DeAgostini-Dinosaurs-co-Maxxi-Edition-Goldener-T-Rex-Dinosaurier/362838611433?hash=item547addd5e9:g:0doAAOSwIV5d572z
https://offer.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBidsLogin&item=362838611433&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2564

Just for comparism, for 20 Euros you can get one from Schleich:
https://www.schleich-s.com/de/DE/dinosaurs/produkte/goldener-t-rex-72122.html
That one not only costs less, but is also bigger and likely a lot more durable, since I don't expect the DeAgostini ones to last long due to the rubbery material being used.

Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

I confess I went for the Aucasaurus, but it certainly didn't cost me anywhere near 30 euro

Honestly, the dinosaur figures of Planeta Agostini from more than twenty years ago were much better figures. They must be small figures judging by the videos and the photography that you show in the thread.

I have the Dilophosaurus and it is a mess. Very soft and flabby and ugly as hell.

They're comparable in size to Safari figures (from my collection thread):

Thank you for the images. Well, honestly, these Planeta / Agostini figures don't look so bad, which I don't understand that they are not marketed in Spain, I would be a buyer of their fascicles. They are obviously not perfect figures but they do have their charm.

@Libraraptor Sorry to say it, but based off the pictures, that's how most of their figures are like! >:D >:D >:D >:D
