Papo 2018 Compsognathus Empty
PostSubject: Papo 2018 Compsognathus   Papo 2018 Compsognathus EmptyWed Sep 12, 2018 12:28 am

This year , Papo gave us a wonderful model of this so cute and small creature Compsognathus.
But we all know from Jurassic park movie, that this so cute creature can be also very dangerous Very Happy

I think it is a great choice from Papo to make a Compsognathus ..it is still very rare in a toy world.
We have a model by Rebor , we also can see 4 different and great made it models, by a new brand called Dino Dream...
including a model in full size, which looks amazing.
And of course one beautiful model by Chronicle Collectibles , again in full size. And some others ... like Dinostoreus for example..

Most of these models ( especially the Chronicle Collectibles)+ the Papo one , are copies from the Compsognathus,
which we can see on the Jurassic park movie.

The Papo model isn`t a perfect copy of the Jurassic park Compsognathus ... it has some issues,
but I like this model very much and in my opinion it looks great.

But let`s see it first :

As you can see it has wonderful details , nice paint job and good pose.
About the pose : first, my model was staying on two legs and the tail was up ... but after a short time , it start to bend forward and folling down... That`s why, I changed and now the tail support it on the floor.

One issue of this model are the hind legs , they are a bit short and like this, they look a bit bulky.
The neck maybe has to be a bit longer...
Also the face is not perfect for the Compsognathus .. maybe the eyes have to be bigger and the profile of the mouth, a bit different..
But still , when we look this model, we can definitely see a Compsognathus :)

Let`s see it with the open jaw :

The articulated jaw is maded nice ( not like the Papo Iguanodon for example)

Now, here we can see other issue, which I found. The Compsognathus has 3 fingers on the hands , but the smaller one has to be much smaller. On the Papo one isn`t like that .. they are almost the same :

And for the size comparison, let`s see it with the old Papo Velociraptor.
As you can see the Compsognathus is quite big model ... even bigger than the Velociraptor :

Thank`s for watching Wink

That's a tremendous review, Kosta! You're turning into a dino expert! cheers
This figure must be a big challenge in erms of manufacturing. Getting the correct balance to make it stand on two legs is surely not easy. It is a fact that the animal is lightweight but paws are also very small. They were brave making it like that when we know Papo avoid bases. I love the articulated jaw and it looks quite nice with open mouth. Now that velociraptors are featured feathered, I believe Compsognathus wil be able of taking the niche reserved to the old fashioned velo even if it is quite different. It looks almost a snake with limbs. Laughing Thanks for opening this great topic and providing pictures to TAI. Very Happy

Am I .. ? I am a bit afraid that this is happening affraid ... Hahha Laughing  I`m still veeeeery faraway from a dino expert,
but slowly I`m learning ...
And why I am afraid of this ..? Because my collection taste is turning to a Dino direction a lot more ... which means, my wallet is turning to
an `` empty direction`` a lot more  lol!

By the way , thank you Roger for adding this model on TAI :)
Maybe you can add also the Papo Therizinosaurus ... when you have time Wink
