Anchiornis huxleyi was only described a decade ago and yet has gone on to become one of the most well understood dinosaur species in recent memory. Hundreds of exceptionally well preserved fossils of this late Jurassic paravian have been found in the bone beds of Liaoning, China.

In addition to preserving their anatomy, fossils can also show us how organisms behaved. One example of this is the Chinese troodontid Mei long, the type fossil of which is a complete juvenile specimen preserved in a sleeping position. While this position has some significant implications (more on that later), only Paleo-Creatures (2017) and PNSO (2018) have ever immortalized it into plastic; the latter of these is the subject of today’s review.

Given their inability to articulate, most dinosaur figures are often posed neutrally. After all, there are only so many adventures a kid can take a sleeping dinosaur on. Luckily, the Paleo-Creatures line isn’t aimed at kids, so just like PNSO, they have released a resting Mei long.
This Invicta Stenonychosaurus/ Troodon is already 21 years old and still one of the best coelurosaur reconstructions that have ever been made.
I really like this very credible sculpture for it has many details which are not obvious at first sight.

Hello everybody! We all know and love the myth, the dinosaur, the legendary Troodon, and I, Emperor Dinobot will now proceed to give some thoughts to the Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Attack Pack toy by Mattel!
I may be a Jurassic fan, but I have to admit that I have never played Telltale’s Jurassic Park: The Game.
Alas, poor Troodon. Beginning in the late 1980s and continuing all the way into the 2010s, it was widely hailed as the smartest dinosaur of them all. It became a fixture of books, documentaries, and films in which it was frequently depicted as a swift, graceful, big-eyed predator that hunted down small mammals in the night.

It has been a long wait, but a worthwhile one. The Mountains Environment Accessory Pack is just one of many from the 1/6th scale Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series line, created by David Silva. It offers the first of its kind: scientifically accurate, highly articulated, and highly detailed dinosaur action figures.
First off I’d like to start off my first review with a brief apology. I promised this review months ago, but between initial delays and my repeatedly putting it off [plus some tardiness on our part too – Ed] I’m only just now getting around to it.
