I was recently able to get the swimming Spinosaurus from CollectA, and was asked to compare the two--so here they are!

One thing I'd forgotten was that the deluxe has an articulated jaw--but otherwise, there is a great consistency between the two sizes of model.

Thankyou for this very useful comparison cheers

I have the small one, and like him very much, - the large one is at least as nice Very Happy

I personally prefer the pose of the swimming one--which is why I only picked up that one (I already have a walking one!)

These are wonderful figures and in my opinion, some of CollecA's best. Great job on this photo shoot. I think they go very nicely together as a possible adult and juvenile pair.

I understand why since the wrist and arm bones for this species haven't been found, and it's impossible to know how it supported itself. Personally, I like both figures for different reasons. They still have a fantastic design overall.

Interesting comparison. My prehistoric collection is closed for some time already but the CollectA spinosaurus is such a remarkable and revolutionary figure in this hobby. It almost represents a completely new animal. The previous interepretation of a spino was so common that it is hard to not get shocked with how it changed. I love the "new" animal. The previous bipedal spino always seemed a little ridiculous to me but I was used to it anyway. These spinos are a piece of the history of the toy animal figures hobby and also a kind of palaenthologic pvc document. Very Happy

I think it may have been one of the biggest shake-ups in dinosaur restoration in a long time, almost on par with bipedal (not tail dragging) dinos, and feathered theropods. The shape and function of Spinosaurus is so far beyond what anyone expected for theropods--how many others will need to be revisited!

I also look forwad to seeing how other companies approach the new morhpology--Kaiyodo did a small one, and I believe Favorite has one coming. But it will be interesting to see what Safari does, and probably disappointing to see what Schleich and Papo do tongue .

Yes, - people with an interest in praehistoric creatures live in an extremely interesting time these days Very Happy

I am sure Safari will obbey to new evidences and provide a scientifically updated spinosaurus. Papo is not so easy to guess. Their spino is an old figure but they released recently a baryonyx what may mean that they're not very interested in releasing a new spinosaurid soon. What about Rebor? They started with many "hunters" and there's no spino yet. scratch Schleich already released a kind of chimera between the two worlds, I think but nothing spectacular is expected for sure. As I said, it is a completely new creature, it will need more mediatism to be included in toy shape in the majority of the toy companies. Very Happy

I like the swimming Spino better because of the shape of the neck (no 45 degree angle but a nice curve) and tail (the Deluxe has a lot of "junk in the trunk" and maybe that's what keeps it floating?)  Laughing

They are both nice figures, but I'm still not convinced about the new "scientifically updated" Spinosaurus.
Those stompy legs don't look natural to me for some reason.
I'm totally embracing feathers on dinosaurs.   study
But those puny hind legs on a Spino?
...nuh-uh.  Evil or Very Mad

I'm not sure about Papo--they are more into sculpts than accuracy (that Baryonyx looks more like a kaiju monster than a living animal) but the detail is impressive.

I don't know much about Rebor. Their limited distribution and high prices leave them incomparable to modest-priced lines like CollectA and Safari (although some of the bigger Papo are starting to creep beyond reason--the Kaprosuchus is $40CDN where I am--for its size, that seems too high. The new Safari T.rex, easily one of the best this year overall for all figures, is under $30CDN).

And Schleich gave up on 'accurate' years ago. Their last great models were the Shonisaurus, Desmatosuchus, and a few frmo that same time. And that was a long time ago (for toys...2005 or so?)
