SK Japan - New for 2020
« on: July 28, 2020, 06:53:06 PM »
A set of 5 new dinosaur gashapon figures:

Ankylosaurus

Brachiosaurus

Stegosaurus

Triceratops

Tyrannosaurus

These are based on illustrations by Yasufumi Fujii (a book of his prehistoric art is available here: https://bookshop.org/books/yasufumi-fujii-dinosaur-illustrations/9784865052718)

On the one hand, I'm not very interested in these since they're the standard stock dinosaurs. On the other hand, I hope they're successful enough to justify follow-up series with some renditions of Fujii's other illustrations, such as:
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.

Standard Dinosaurs in unattractive colors. Yeah, not my cup of tea.
Now these Ornithopods would be nice!

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 would certainly be interested in all those neglected ornithischians as well as you. Although I think Othneilia has now been merged into Nanosaurus? As far as I'm aware all of those, minus Leaellynasaura, have relatively good material and all are sorely lacking in (preferably accurate) figure representation as is (with give or take CollectA's Hypsilophodon). And well there's probably a dozen more like them that I would like to see done in the future by any company really (such as Kulindadromeus, and quite frankly I'm surprised CollectA hasn't even jumped on that one yet).

Yep, Othnielia and Othnielosaurus were both synonymized with Nanosaurus. And I agree, Kulinadromeus would be welcome!
