It looks just fabulous to me, not alway a dinosaur replica makes me think in real animals but this one does for sure. I am eager to read dino expert comments about this figure. bounce bounce

This is a good model choice. Like the Safari Iguanodon, Struthiomimus is a well-known dinosaur that needed another toy representative, as ornithomimids have always been neglected... probably a curse of their graceful proportions. I'm curious about the size of this one. The face looks well-sculpted, as well as the claw shape and fingers.

I think CollectA's dinosaur plumage is looking more natural, culminating in the Beishanlong just unveiled. In this Struthiomimus the wings look somewhat "tacked on", but it would be wrong to form too strong an opinion from just one image. I wonder how the scales and feathers on this relate to the newly described fossil Ornithomimus.

There are quite a few theropods on bases from CollectA for 2015 and now 2016. I don't own any, but I think some people have had warping issues with the material... maybe these new ones will be different?

This was my reaction too.

(I'll still get it though.)

Their stock images aren't always the best reference for the actual product, and the wing feathers can't be seen on the other arm... I think it's a matter of waiting for more pictures.bounce
