PNSO Plastic Quality
« on: June 08, 2020, 03:00:35 PM »
I remember having posted some time ago my problems with some figures getting sticky, namely the CollectA Deluxe Agustinia.
That is why, when I buy a figure from a new brand,  I try to make sure that I don’t end up getting a figure with bad plastic quality just like that Agustinia. That is the only figure that I have that had this issue.

Last year, I bought my first 2 Eofauna figures (Giganotosaurus and Atlasaurus), and the quality of the plastic is excellent, as to be expected, and to this day, they remain fine.

But this year, I might get the (yet to be confirmed and revealed) Borealopelta, which would make it my first PNSO figure. That is why, I would like to ask all of you who have their mid-range figures like Ankylosaurus, Stegosaurus, Spinops... how is the plastic quality? Have you noticed the figure getting sticky ever since you got it/them? I would like to hear your thoughts!

I have the mid range Stegosaurus,Ankylosaurus and Eurhinosaurus.The plastic on all three is still perfectly fine.
Don't you hate it when you legitimately compliment someone's mustache and she gets angry with you?

I have a large number of PNSO models from minis up to Nick the Ceratosaurus. None of them has become sticky. Specifically I have the midrange Spinops, Stegosaurus and Ankylosaurus and they are fine. Sometimes with mini bipeds, the plastic is too soft and/or the legs too thin and they lean over time. I saw a Facebook post by a Chinese person yesterday about the new baseless Wilson. He commented that they had used a hard plastic for the legs. But they were so thin he still feared it would topple eventually!

After six months to one year and no air conditioning, my 15 plus figures are still perfectly fine,

All my PNSO figures are totally fine, it is more now with PNSO's sinoceratops and baby tyrannosaurus they look like resin figures being made of PVC even if you have them in person. The plastic in the PNSO figures are top quality.

I only have the PNSO Ankylosaurus, which I got last December and which has been standing in a glass-fronted bookcase in a cool but relatively sunny room ever since.  The plastic feels the same as when I got it and not at all sticky.  For context, I live in an area of Scotland that hardly ever sees temperatures reach 30C, so I don't know how the plastic would respond to a hotter climate, but I suspect it wouldn't make much difference. 

The material feels very high quality.  It has a smooth, matte texture and is more hard than rubbery, very similar to what my Eofauna Giganotosaurus (displayed alongside it in the same bookcase) is made of but a bit less rigid.  It's nothing like the more rubbery materials that you generally have stickiness issues with.

For what it's worth, I personally really like the feel of my model.  It has a nice solidity and weight to it which I like, and I'd honestly be very surprised if it broke, warped or anything.  So based on my experience and from the point of view of the quality of the toy, I highly recommend PNSO and would say go ahead and get your figure.  I doubt you'll regret it.

Hope this helped. :)

In my case, the climate in my city is extreme or it is very hot in summer, a dry heat with more than 40 degrees or it is extremely dry cold in winter with temperatures of less than 0 degrees. If it is because of the temperature, you should not worry, endure changes in temperature. I have no problems.
