In 2009, The Japanese company [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] produced a series of Dinosaur figures for the Dinosaur Expo.

I had the chance to put my hand on the Gigantoraptor with the great help of Sauroid cheers

Discovered in 2005, Gigantoraptor was a Big cousin of the Oviraptor. It leaved in the Iren Dabasu Formation in Inner Mongolia at the upper Cretaceous period (70 million years ago).
With an estimated ength of 8 metres (26 ft) and a weight of 1400 kg, this Theropod dinosaur was the largest of the Oviraptosaurids.

Let me show you the small Capcom reconstruction Very Happy

I don't remember reading about Capcom before but I am familiar with some of their merchandising. Pictures are just perfect as usual! cheers
Figure is a little parrotesque, funny actually but I suspect they were like that actually. I also like that some recently found prehistoric animals are featured, it is quite boring when companies release the same old classic dinos. :)

Thank you Rogério Very Happy . Yes, I also like to see something different from Trex or Velociraptors on my shelves Laughing .

Despite it is a small (but expensive Crying or Very sad ) Gigantoraptor, I chose it because I think it is far more interresting than its CollectA competitor.

Yes, I agree, though it is meritory that CollectA introduced such an unusual dinosaur so early in their range. Also, in 2009, CollectA was not a "mature" brand as they are now. :)
