My two cents Wink

PAPO and official pics are not good friends. No

The best is to wait to see the smilodon on display Suspect

PAPO already sold three exclusive preview in the "Le bonhomme de bois" shops in France. Last year they did the same for the <FNAC "éveil & jeux" shops.
Yesterday I came dowtown to watch "christmas lightning" with my young daughter. On the road back home, we stopped in the shop and I discover these two litlle newbies Wink
How lucky you are! Very Happy Wink

In terms of artistic professionality, a big YES; in terms of accuracy, not the best.
But who cares so much about 'accuracy' of creatures that died out million years ago? tongue
They look good to our eyes and we ENJOY watching them, so... why not? pirat

But I'll tell you the big problem with dinosaur figures: they are too BIG ! take a lot of space!

That's right Martin, I agree they are expensive too. Even the smallest dinosaur costs twice the price of a regular figure. I can buy 2 wild animals in a price of 1 small dinosaur.

Of course, passion can overcome this concerns, as our friend Ken said, but I've found the Middle way - collecting prehistoric mammals! rendeer

Hey Baltimore,

have you ever noticed that cropped ears are forbidden in the most states. It´s a big cruelty to animals.

Well, I most definitely prefer cropped. My dogs ears were cropped(he was sedated and the surgery performed by a veterinary surgeon) and he could of cared less(when I picked him up he was happy as a clam). Cruel?
I don't see how/why(cropping dogs for a long time)? Fact is, my dog's never had an ear infection(cleaner, better air flow). I know everyone has there own opinion on cropping, but to me, it gives a dog's head a more regal and elegant look.
