Hello /toys/ so i finaly bought my T-Rex. It's a big guy.
What cool dinosaurs toys there is around ? I prefer them "realistic".
I'm sure is ton of stuff ?
I must admit they all look great. And the price is ok.
Is there more ? Skeletton , skulls, fake bonnes/teeth ?
Well, if you don't mind skeletons...
Papo isn't scientifically accurate (in proportions and stuff, not just feathers), but hot damn if they aren't the most beautiful paint jobs and sculpt for a mass-produced toy.
Rebor is a "copycat" company that makes similarly-painted dinosaurs but most require an included base - they aren't free-standing toys.
Revo t-rex is the best articulated dino. It comes in two releases - one JP-inspired and the newer one has a "cartoonier" (flat) paint job and a retooled head (slightly more resembling a yutyrannus).
Creative Beast studios is working on making a campaign for a mass-produced articulated raptor series. They previously made stylized polygonal raptor and oviraptor resin kits, which were too fragile.
Well for one, many of their dinosaurs have pronated wrists and we know that those wouldn't work (same goes for us).
Out of fleshy dinosaurs, I'd say revo t-rex. No elbow or wrist joints (as if it needs any) but perfectly fine in all other aspects. Other dinos fall short in ways like an inability to turn their head/neck or no tail. The WWD gorgosaurus (from the "ruined by talking" movie) is probably second place.
Skeleflex (pic related) are stylized skeleton dinosaurs and those are all ball joints. First waves are made of a more fragile plastic and prone to cracking.
Stay away from Skeleflex, I have all of them and while they look great and seem to have perfect articulation, the joints become loose very quickly if you play around with them, and if you dare look at them the wrong way the joints break.
The Revoltech T-Rex's the first release is based on The Lost World: Jurassic Park. The second release is license free with a slightly retooled head and different paint job. I actually prefer the second release since it looks a lot more like the original JP1/JW Rex.
I have to highly recommend the entire Rebor line of Dinosaurs. They come in great foam-lined packaging. They all have bases, great paint and sculpt detail, and look way more expensive than they actually are. Totally in love with these things. Its also really cool that they've started doing releases so that they will add up into a diorama.
For instance with their T-Rex they put it out in a pose where it has one foot raised onto a big rock. A bit later they put out the "Fallen Queen" Triceratops which can be used as a base for the T-rex with plans to eventually put out "King Trident", a Triceratops male defending his mate. I think that for displays their stuff is really on a great affordable level and pretty impressive.
This one by Rebor ® is so cute.
They seem a little more expensive than Papo tho and aimed more for teens/adults than children.
Found this at 59$
Op here. Contact this guy ? Hope they are not all extincts.
I would like to do a diorama with the t rex, where is the best place to start ? I have no idea where to begin.
The statue has a very neutral posture and look, it's gonna be hard i think to do a scenary. If you have any ideas, tell me !
I mean nobody can know how they looks like , all the tissues are gone.
>Would love to do a diorama with this fat fuck
My traitorous roomate just attach a bell to my t- rex screaming " there is a cow in the living room, run !"
I thought his idea hilarous but poor taste.
There are a lot of dinosaurs, and other past creatures, who have had impressions of their flesh, muscles, feathers, etc. saved in fossils as well.
We definitely know what some things looked like.
Yes. A lot. That's not to say Schleich doesn't have some good ones, but Papo's painting and sculpting is just more exact and detailed. Lately they've been using this awesome semi-translucent plastic that REALLY captures the light and makes them look alive.
I like the feel of the plastic they use but most if not all of their dinosaurs look as if someone good at texturing tried to recreate those cheapo "chinasaur" dinosaurs.
Agreed on the texture, this guy feels so good to touch, but it is so inaccurate i would rank it among Kaiju before dinosaurs
Am I the only one praying to the Fairy Grandmother of /toy/ that pic related gets figures?
I mean help my fuck, if Five Nights at Fandom is getting merch and toys out the ass, then there's no reason why Saurian couldn't put out some toys of its own
True, now matter how dinosaurs are reconstructed they'll be wrong.
However, some reconstructions are less wrong than others, and if you're gonna be wrong anyway it's better to be wrong and interesting than be wrong and boring.
Can't seem to post the Facebook link since 4chan thinks it's spam. Google 'Creative Beast Studio'.
he does some pretty crazy sculptures and he has done some work for neca
I would kill to get this statue. Too bad it doesn't even show up on eBay anymore, and when it did it was expensive as fuck.
What do you mean? IRL the wings would have been anchored into the tissues just like they do a modern day bird. If you look at a chicken, the primaries start at the second finger, which is the largest and most visible digit on the naked wing of a bird. Same aspect for some dinos that are closely related to modern birds.
If you're talking about the toy you can clearly see where they connect.
I'm talking about how the whichever-nychus seemingly has the "hand" portion of the wing just jutting out of its wrist, with the second digit of each hand being left completely bare.
Unless it had some serious digital reduplication or some major sonic hedgehog shenanigans, it just doesn't seem physically possible.
well to be fair, all feathered dinosaur toys currently on the market suck crusty poop-dick.
Thanks to a certain demographic [a large percentage of which likely own scale-textured plucked-velociraptor bodypillows (which is actually pretty damn ironic, when you consider the nature of Dinosaur scales)], toy companies can't be assed to put effort into making toys that reflect modern scientific standards.
Found pic related at my local Michael's. Instant buy and I love the little fucker. To small to scale with my Figmas (unless we're going for the JP Spitter size), but love the sculpt and basic pose.
>tfw I'll never own all the Dinosauria statues
>"hand" portion of the wing just jutting out of its wrist
IRL the primaries would have started on the second digit. A wing is the hand and arm of a bird, and similarly would be the hand and arm of dinosaurs closely related to birds. The part angled down on the toy, the primaries of the wing, aren't attached to the toy's digit or it would have impacted articulation, it looks. On the actual animal, it would have started on the second digit.
If I'm misunderstanding what you're asking let me know.
hey, you wanted hi rez photos of the eyes, here you go.
I tried to do my best with a dslr and a deported flash.
does anyone have one of those rubber-skinned plush figures of Allosaurus the Discovery Stores sold years back? I always wanted to get one as a young teen but never had the $30 to drop when they were still around.
