In the past i think i found a few figurine inspirations for the brands. Some we discuss here :) Do you know more?




May I bring your attention on something, please? It's about Play Visions Prehistoric Amphibians. In my room, I have a book edited by Marshall Editions about prehistoric animals. It's the 2000 french version of a book lensed in english back in 1988. I want you to look at the pages about the prehistoric amphibians. Do you noticed the same thing as I did? For their Prehistoric Amphibians line, PLAY VISIONS USED, AS MODELS, THE VERY ILLUSTRATIONS OF THAT BOOK. The postures are the same, the colors are the same, the textures are the same. All the very same!

The same book was used for models of the prehistoric mammals and prehistoric reptiles as well!

And those illustrations have shown up in many different books over the last 30+ years. Plus a Grolier CD-ROM called Prehistoria

I think I have two, and I have seen several others reusing the same illustrations. Plus the CD-ROM (which uses older pictures--and does not include the conodont)

The main one is The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs & Prehistoric Creatures.

Some pages can be see here:

http://www.amazon.com/Illustrated-Encyclopedia-Dinosaurs-Prehistoric-Creatures/dp/0785828605

(I can't remember my login to check...!)

The Monterey Bay adult beluga was modeled after a whale named Ferdinand from Zoo Duisburg. He now lives at SeaWorld in San Diego.

About Lineol and Albert Cassmann

The animals of the Berlin Zoo served as models for the wild animals. Two famous examples from the production of animal figurines are the hippopotamus Knautschke and the goblin "Bobby", which Albert Caasmann has immortalized in miniature.
