I'm at least curious to see how they turn out, for better or worse. Some of these are interesting choices at least, such as Kaprosuchus, which the only other options are the Safari Ltd and Papo to my knowledge.

Thoughts:
Kaprosuchus: Nice choice
Mosaurus: Interested how this one turns out
Pachycephalosaurus: Kinda wierd given that they recently made a dracorex, its like a company making torosaurus, and then two years later a triceratops
Ceratosaurus: This is a big hit or miss
Bronto: Good pick, gven its like a symbol of both vintage dinosaurs and the modern depictions(like how its now reconginezed a true genus after so many years of just being apatosaurus)


I'll be back in October. If im not here yet, assume something terrible happen to me

Isn't thw whole growth stages thing for Trike and Pachy still debated? Besides, do you really think Schleich would be up to date with that after this year's Agustinia and Postosuchus?

Heh, Ceratosaurus is a species I requested from Schleich, see the quote below.  Interesting they didn't go with Austroraptor and Velociraptor, I guess they don't feel ready to make those yet.  We'll see what the Ceratosaurus is like!  Kaprosuchus is a boring choice to me, all that's known of it is the head and I don't like figures that invent body parts too much.

I've expressed my interest to Schleich that I'd like to see the sculptor of the Baryonyx make the following as Schleich figures: Ceratosaurus, a Velociraptor that's based on the real animal rather than one from the Jurassic Park series, and Austroraptor.  I also added that if they made a new Velociraptor or an Austroraptor, I hoped they would be feathered like a bird.  Schleich replied, thanking me for the product suggestion and the criticism, and they said they would gladly pass it on to their product development and marketing team.  The criticism they referred to I imagine regards when I mentioned the Velociraptor figures they've made so far appear to be based on the ones from the Jurassic Park series and I briefly described how those differ from a real Velociraptor.  We'll see if any of the things I suggested gets made as a Schleich figure! :)


Well, they released another repainted "Velociraptor" this year.

Iím crossing my fingers they donít look like weird Godzilla monsters. You just canít ever be sure with Schleich.

I actually would prefer "weird Godzilla monsters" to some of the stuff they put out. I mean, look at their Barapasaurus:

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

Torosaurus is not the same as Triceratops. That notion was debunked repeatedly years ago.

I have seen most of the Wild and Farm Life leaked images and while they were blurry it was evident the new models had marked improvement over the last year's offerings. Especially some of the horses (and it was obvious which sculptor did them, lol) but I also noticed some style changes overall, less alien almond eyes, some horses had eye whites. So maybe this means this one sculptor was able to work more freely or it means Schleich responded to some of the heavy criticisms issued by the model horse collectors. We'll see if dinosaurs will follow this trend or not.

No no no, the reason I used torosaurus is because it was very related to triceratops, kind of like pachy and dracorex

Iíve noticed that schleich usually has serviceable sculpts (usually). So hopefully theyíll manage to pick some decent colors. I think a paint scheme can go a long way.

As much as I want to be like 'man these could turn out interesting', I said that about the 2020 range, and...well....

I'll keep my expectations at ground level. At the very least though, Ceratosaurus is gnarly enough in reality for Schleich to do something interesting with.

Ha ha, I do not expect anything from Schleich, they seemed to have  improved a couple of years ago with the Oviraptor, Psittacosaurus and Spinosaurus, but they did not keep the momentum, and  they ended up producing the same ugly and scientifically inaccurate stuff as usual  >:(

im looking forward to the Pachycephalosaurus and Brontosaurus. not really expecting much on the carnivorous species. (the way they'd sculpt the teeth would be very disappointing). well actually i shouldnt expect too much from Schleich.

To be fair, the Dracorex and the Diabloceratops came out after that trainwreck above. Schleich dinosaur assortments are kind of like a bag containing both jellybeans and rabbit droppings.

Historically, it's always been that way. Back in the Replicasaurus days, for every Shonisaurus or Iguanodon, there was a Ceratosaurus or Baryonyx.

Yeah, as much as I dis Schleich, they still can make some pretty amazing figures if they try, kinda like Papo. I still maintain their Dinogorgon is one of my favorite figures ever.

I'm mostly interested in their interpretation of a Kaprosuchus.  They essentially have all the artistic license they could want since all we know of the creature is a skull.  I will be acquiring that piece as long as it's within the 1:30-50 scale range.  The Papo and Safari versions are great, but their scales are too large for my collection.

Well, at least the hands are not pronated.

Yeah, that is the thing with Schleich. They have to potential for greatness, but they mostly churn out junk. I also noticed that a lot of their good figures tend to be shortlived, while their bad ones tend to stick around, often getting repaints. Case in point, their 2012 T.rex ( or as they call it T-Rex ) come originally in green, had a very limited gold run, a not so limited red one ( despite people on eBay asking hilariously high prices for it, one can still buy it from Schleich directly ), a blue one that came with a volcano, and is getting a red and blue version this year. Oh, and they also made a smaller version of it for their new magazine.

Though I also collect figures from lines that are generally far superior, I think that the reason that I keep collecting occasional Schleich figures ( I have several boxes of them now) is for the reason that you mentioned, @CityRaptor - they are capable and more than capable of periodically producing some very fine pieces. It's the reason why I keep anticipating releases and also the reason why I frequently get frustrated at their obtuseness. I haven't given up on them, not at all.

I couldn't agree more.
