Dear all,

   We are Eofauna, a company focused on prehistoric fauna. We have a wide knowledge in biology and paleontology. Among our products and contributions stand out the animated 3D models, sculptures, illustrations, dinosaur books and scientific publications.

In this moment we are the exploring the possibility to perform PVC scale models (1:40) of prehistoric fauna. We would like to know the preferences and the wishes of the dinosaur fans. Thus, what could be better to ask you, dinosaur toy collectors. We would be very glad if you could take 5 minutes to fill the following form. Your opinion is very important for us.

We already sent the form to other collectors.

Thanks in advance!

For those not familiar with Eofuana have a look at my post here where I review their figures.  
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The models are of superior quality in terms of accuracy, sculpting and painting.  
The models I reviewed were made of resin but their proposed new figures are to be made of PVC, the same as regular mass produced plastic animal models (safari ltd, schleich etc).  

If you want to see more from this company please let them know your thoughts by filling in the survey.
I have no doubt their future models will be excellent in every way.

This sounds awesome! Thank you for taking the time to get our opinions.

Your resins look truly fantastic and I'd love to fill out your survey. In general, good 1:40 scale prehistoric figures are highly desirable, so this sounds like a really great idea. I look forward to seeing what you'll create.

Thank you to be here Eofauna and welcome on STS.

Your resin figures are really fantastic and I'm sure your PVC ones will be gems for toy collectors.

I will send a newsletter to all our members.

While I don't collect prehistoric animals, I look forward seeing some current animals from Eofuana, the accuracy, facial expression and proper pose of the elephant is very impressive.

I left this comment in my questionnaire as well, but to reiterate: I would love to see you guys do an array of more obscure Ice Age animals like the Columbian mammoth, American mastodon, stag moose, short-faced bear, long-horn bison, American lion, etc... Something other than the usual Woolly mammoth and sabretooth cats. I'd love it even more if they were to the same general scale as Safari and Schleich wildlife figures, about 1:24-30.

Thank you for reaching out, EoFauna! I also answered this questionnaire at the dinosaur toy forum, but in any event I would be most excited about animals known from good remains, yet rarely made into figures. So for example, I would be much likelier to buy a Pinacosaurus than a Tyrannosaurus, more likely to buy a Rhamphodopsis than a Dunkleosteus, and more likely to buy a Docofossor than a Smilodon.

This new Paleoloxodon looks absolutely amazing both in sculpture and design. I love the species choice as well since this is truly a remarkable elephant.

There is only one minor critique I have about this model, though. I noticed he was in 1:35 rather than 1:40 scale like the Steppe Mammoth. Personally, I prefer consistent scaling among prehistoric figures. However, this is a minor nitpick on my part, especially since this species in particular should be gigantic. Overall, this figure is still fantastic.

I was waiting for the second model and now I am waiting for the third!

It is a bloom time for great extinct elephants : two Eofauna's, a Safari's mastodon and a Collecta's Gomphotherium. Awesome!

If they keep dropping five every time, then I hope a Columbian Mammoth is their fourth release. That'll be 1:25 and perfect for my collection! Wink

Well, the Carnegie woolly mammoth is 1:24, and the Wild Safari mastodon is thereabouts, so it would be about right :)

Really? I didn't realize they were that big, particularly the Carnegie version.

Still, I really like their Paleoloxodon and the size is similar to what I collect. I know that scale preferences can be personal and any figure could be right for someone.

I'm a big fan of that 1:24ish scale because that's about the scale of most modern animal figures. It's not exact, but it looks about right to put the Carnegie mammoth and Wild Safari mastodon beside other Safari and Schleich figures, and even most Papo ones. Mojo ones are a little bigger, which works to represent megafauna like dire wolves. When putting together a collection (used for education) replicating my area's Pleistocene ecology, having them all about the same scale kinda' matters, to capture a good impression of these animals' size and how impoverished our Holocene ecology actually is.

I think we actually have very similar likes when it comes to prehistoric figures. While I don't use my figures for education (although I greatly admire the fact that you are able to), I love the added benefit of seeing how they accurately look together. Some of these giants were a lot grander in size than others.

Of course the main difference is that the focus of my collection is dinosaurs and prehistoric sea life. A lot of them were originally produced in 1:40, so that's why I prefer it. I can see why 1:24 works better for mammals.

Oh yes, 1:40 is the best for dinosaurs, for sure. It bugs me that CollectA does a smaller scale, because otherwise they do a better variety of dinos than Safari does (even though Safari has better sculpting). 1:40 ice age mammals works for comparing the size of a mammoth to a T. rex, but doesn't look as good with standard sized modern mammals.

Recently, EoFauna (the same company that made that wonderful Steppe Mammoth model) has teased a model of Palaeoloxodon antiquus. What are your thoughts on it?

2018 is the year of extinct elephants! Here are some pics of the new elephants (Collecta, Eofauna and Safari amid older figures).

Awesome seeing them all lined up like that! Gives a nice impression of the size... That steppe mammoth could also pass for a younger woolly mammoth at that scale. Hmmmm... Very cool!
