Achelousaurus (Antediluvia Collection)

Yes, another Achelousaurus and yes, that’s a nickel its standing on.  Let me introduce the second member of the Antedeluvia collection to be reviewed here on the blog, David Krentz’s rendition of Achelousaurus.  If you would like more information on this particular ceratopsian dinosaur simply scroll down a bit and read the first paragraph of …

Acrocanthosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

As more species slip into mainstream consciousness, the ever-popular theropoda sees its previously obscure members slowly becoming household names. Nowhere is this more evident than Acrocanthosaurus atokensis, which has quickly soared to the popularity levels of Dilophosaurus and Spinosaurus. Alright, maybe ol’ Acro isn’t quite that popular – those two examples did have the dubious …

Allosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

Photos by Dan and Jeremy Although David’s 1:72 scale Antediluvian series has been graced with a few exotic species, he’s giving plenty of love to the classics as well. His considerable talents often present the animal in a new and exciting light, such as the rare uplifted Stegosaurus or surprisingly common closed-jawed theropods. The beloved …

Apatosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

Apatosaurus has come a long way over the years. What was once a sluggish swamp-dwelling behemoth is now more tightly built, with muscular columns of legs supporting a powerful body, graceful neck, and elegant whip-like tail. As the rest of the world struggles to keep pace with the latest paleontological research, David Krentz is always …

Corythosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)

Corythosaurus is a relatively well known duck-billed dinosaur, or hadrosaur that lived in what is now Canada about 80-72 million years ago. Its name means “helmet reptile” because of the shape of the hollow crest that adorns its skull. The Corythosaurus that is part of the tiny and beautiful Antediluvia Collection, sculpted by artist, David …

Einiosaurus “Buffalo Bill” (David Krentz)

Despite the constant presence of prehistoric collectibles in my shop, it may surprise people to know that I’m not much of a collector. I don’t feel compelled to own most things I see, even the truly awesome things. If space and money were never an issue, I would still exercise restraint. I am rather picky …

Saichania (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

“Saichania” is Mongolian for “beautiful one.” Admittedly, this is not the sort of title one expects to find among ankylosaurs. After all, they don’t quite have the sleek and decorative appearance of other thyreophorans like Kentrosaurus, nor the poise and majesty of the classic Stegosaurus. And yet, armored dinosaurs possess a vast array of impressive …

Stegosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

Rounding out David’s acclaimed line of 1:72 models is this 3 inch long reconstruction of Stegosaurus stenops. The upright posture will be one of the first things to draw the eye. It’s a refreshing twist on what is otherwise a very traditional dinosaur. Some may be skeptical as to whether this pose was anatomically feasible. …

Styracosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)

I really do like Styracosaurus very much. So much, in fact, that I decided to break my long absence from writing reviews with yet another rendition of this lovely spiked ceratopsid. Today we will be looking at David Krentz’s sculpt from his Antediluvia line. Accuracy wise this little fellow is pretty much perfect. The head …

Tenontosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

The grand history of paleontology puts quite a bit of emphasis on Iguanodon. As a child, I could never understand why people failed to recognize this dinosaur, especially when all the books lavished it with so much attention. It was almost as though they weren’t reading the books at all. Possibly the most attention Iguanodon …

Triceratops (Antediluvia Collection)

I decided that it was time again for me to do a review of my favorite dinosaur, Triceratops. Furthermore, it is also from my favorite line of models, David Krentz’s Antediluvia collection. Like all of the dinosaurs represented in this line. There is very little to complain about with this piece with regards to scientific …

Tyrannosaurus rex (Antediluvia Collection)

David Krentz, also responsible for sculpting and designing the Sideshow Dinosauria Collection, has created a line of dinosaur models on a much smaller and thankfully less expensive scale.  The Antediluvia Collection consists of dinosaurs all made in exactly 1/72 scale but don’t let the small size fool you.  They are still extremely detailed much like …
