For their first hadrosaur, Haolonggood has opted for Tlatolophus. Not only is it the first time this species has received a toy, but it’s also one of the few times that a Mexican dinosaur has received any love!
Both versions look nice.
The three final 2024 CollectA toys have been revealed! First up is the very first ever toy of Nanuqsaurus! This Alaskan tyrannosaurid was smaller than Albertosaurus and much smaller than Tyrannosaurus rex, but if you saw its appearance in Prehistoric Planet, you know it was a savage and pitiless predator!
CollectA has a new ankylosaur coming out in 2024: a 1:20 scale Deluxe-sized version of Polacanthus, a relatively famous but poorly known English nodosaurid.
At 27.5 cm long and 13 cm high at the tip of its tail, the Polacanthus will rival this year’s Stegouros for the title of CollectA’s largest ankylosaur!
This week’s reveal from CollectA includes the second ever toy of the gigantic titanosaur Dreadnoughtus (Mattel’s was the first one). At 1:100 scale, it is nearly 24 cm tall and 32 cm long, which makes it smaller than this year’s Ruyangosaurus, but still pretty darned big! It will be one of the first new toys to be available next year.
Now here’s something a lot of collectors, myself included, have been craving for a long time: a high quality figure of Megaraptor!
As usual, Haolonggood is offering this terrific tyrannosauroid in two different colour schemes.
My only concern is its stability, as the right leg appears to be balancing on just the tip of one claw.
Feast your eyes upon the stupendous Samuel! This towering Alamosaurus is perhaps PNSO’s finest sauropod yet, standing close to 30 cm tall and boasting a very long and very thick neck and rows of spiky osteoderms on his back. He’ll undoubtedly go well with Cameron, or indeed most other Tyrannosaurus rex figures!
CollectA’s first 2024 reveal is their 1:3 scale take on Dearc (pronounced “jark”), a Middle Jurassic rhamphorhynchine discovered in Scotland. Named and described in 2022, it had an estimated wingspan of up to three metres and was the largest flying creature of its time.
The head appears to have been inspired by the northern gannet.
The Cyberzoic Kickstarter is officially over. 1,637 backers contributed an impressive combined total of $608,230 US to bring David Silva’s long dream closer to fruition. Naturally, it will be at least a year before the figures ship, but judging from the images, the wait will be worth it.
It being Halloween, REBOR has revealed their “Cannibal Corpse” Plain Version Deluxe Pack, a gruesomely zombified version of the Jurassic Park Tyrannosaurus rex, complete with a severed Indominus arm for it to munch on.
Personally, I moved on from the whole zombie craze some years ago, but I’m sure this item will be well-received by many folk.
Haolonggood’s latest reveal is a double dose of Dilophosaurus! Collectors can choose between a standing or a sitting version, or both.
And naturally, each figure comes in two distinct colour schemes. The brighter coloration of the sitting individual in the first pair could mean that it is a male, similar to how many male birds are more brightly coloured than females.
Two exciting new dinosaurs from PNSO have been announced today! First up is Dapeng the Yangchuanosaurus magnus. This is the fourth figure of the genus to be released by PNSO (the previous one being Dayong the Y. shangyouensis), and their third theropod to feature covered teeth when its mouth is shut!
