Discovered in 1971, the “Fighting Dinosaurs” fossil is particularly special, as it preserved two dinosaurs apparently in a literal fight to the death. Because of this, the combatants, Protoceratops and Velociraptor, have joined the most legendary dinosaur rivalries. You’d be hard-pressed to find a piece of paleoart that doesn’t depict the two going at each other.
There can’t be that many of the major brands producing prehistoric animals in plastic that don’t have a woolly mammoth in their range, and the subject of this review is Favorite’s contribution to the herd (This is my third mammoth review here – coincidence or type casting or maybe I just have a lot of mammoths?).

The Favorite Zhuchengtyrannus and Sinoceratops come packaged in a boxed set for the Fukui Dinosaur Museum in Japan. They are sculpted by Favorite’s premiere artist, Kazunari Araki. Both of these dinosaurs are only known from fragmentary remains, so the scale is a bit iffy, but they fit in well enough with other 1:40 figures (or possibly slightly smaller).
