I had to...


OMG, absolutely brilliant memery.  ;D
That being said, now that people are comparing it to Plotosaurus, it actually doesn't look that bad anymore. It still looks rather derpy, but at least it looks like something. I may even be tempted to get it now, and just call it Plotosaurus.

I want to be charitable here; the Brontosaurus at least looks like it has the right number of claws on its hands! That's to say, just the thumb claws. In general, yes, these are pretty rough. I'm a little surprised at how much worse the Pachycephalosaurus looks than their earlier Dracorex! Maybe it's just a bad picture?

Loon, that Arrested Development joke is -hilarious-.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thought it... You can still see it in Chinasaurs bags!

Wow. I was not expecting them to be revealed so soon. So here's my thoughts on these figures:

Ceratosaurus: Honestly, it's better than what I was expecting. It's like Deja Vu with their Baryonyx all over again. I still think Papo has the best Ceratosaurus figure out there, but Schleich's is still pretty good.

Kaprosuchus: Looks like a combination of the Safari Ltd Kaprosuchus and Prestosuchus, but I still like it.

Pachycephalosaurus: It's okay. I was hoping for some more original colors, but oh well.

Brontosaurus: Is it me or does it resemble the Jurassic World Apatosaurus? Still looks decent none the less.

Mosasaurus: It's a bit better than their Plesiosaurus, but Schleich still need to make some improvements.


Overall, this wave of figures is better than what we got this year.

That chinasaur comparison came to my mind too, didn't find an image to compare though, luckily it's a bit better than that one.

@Irritation Agreed on the JW Apato bit, especially the head. They did at least add some stripes but it does seem fairly similar.

I like the Ceratosaurus, Kaprosuchus, and Brontosaurus the most of these. Don't think the Pachycephalosaurus is terrible either, and no doubt it would pair well with their Dracorex, which also has a similar color scheme.

I realize the pose on the Ceratosaurus is an outdated tripod one, but I don't think it looks too different from many of the Carnegie Collection figures in that regard. What I like about it most is the color scheme. I think it is by far the most appealing (to me anyways) color scheme I've seen on a Ceratosaurus yet.

The Kaprosuchus is easily the best of these, but of course I prefer the Safari Ltd and Papo ones slightly more (sculpt and color schemes).

I don't think the Brontosaurus is too bad. It kind of reminds me of their older Replicasaurus Apatosaurus. The fore-digits look correct too? I'm not seeing any claws where there shouldn't be anyways.

The Mosasaurus is easily the weakest of these, as the proportions, etc are off, but at least they gave it a fluke. Could have been worse I guess.

It's a shame Schleich never made any more prehistoric mammals. They always come out with nice mammals in their wildlife range.

@Faelrin I have pretty much the exact same feelings about the upcoming releases, I have warmed up to the Brontosaurus over the course of the day and am now beginning to wonder how a repaint brushed over the JW Blue palette might look like.

@dinotoyforum, shall we establish an official "New for 2021" section?

Done, and I moved this topic there.  C:-)

I'm just waiting for the day Schleich makes a Xiphactinus that looks like a sea monk.

I have a question about Ceratosaurus pose.
It is possible for dinosaur to make that pose?
Or it is anatomically impossible for tail to touch ground that way?

I think with recent studies, it might not be the case if the dinosaur is standing on its two legs unless it's lying down.

Mmmm, happy about the Kaprosuchus. This is the only one I was interested in and it ended up quite nice.

I think that pose works, the tail is still aligned in a straight line with the torso after all.
Maybe the right femur that is hidden behind the body might be stretching too far back but we can't really see that for now.
It is only "resting" on the tail as a figure but it is not a pose where the tail is actually resting on the ground which wouldn't work, rather just touching the ground.
