Take a look at two more interesting 2024 Mattel Jurassic World Danger Pack toys. First is Craterosaurus, an Early Cretaceous stegosaur from England known from just a partial vertebra (which clearly didn’t deter Mattel).
And the other is Kileskus, a Middle Jurassic tyrannosauroid from Russia.
Well, this is definitely disappointing. Mojo Fun is only releasing repaints for next year. And two of these five repaints are of the same animal. It’s even more unfortunate considering that Mojo was on a pretty decent prehistoric mammal roll for the last three years. Here’s hoping that they make up for this in 2025.
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!
At very long last, Eofauna’s upcoming Tyrannosaurus SUE has been revealed! At 1:35 scale (34 cm x 13 cm) and with a removable base and a colour scheme by the remarkable paleoartist Andrey Atuchin, this one looks like a royal winner!
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!
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!
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.
