I've just got this from Collecta :

"Borealpelta meaning Northern shield
It was an Early Cretaceous armoured dinosaur, a nodosaurid ankylosaur, that was discovered in oil sands mine north of Alberta Canada in 2011. It was presented to the public in 2017. The fossil was remarkable as it had preserved the osteoderms or armoured plates in their original positions and it even had the remains of keratin on the spikes and skin. It was even possible to say that the skin had been a reddish/brown colour in life with a lighter underbelly shading which is generally a camouflage scheme. The animal was probably washed out to sea in a flood and drowned and was quickly covered, hence retaining its shape in life. We have modelled the toy to match the position of the fossil and restored the missing parts from the hips that were damaged in the finding. It is possibly the best preserved dinosaur fossil ever discovered."

What?!
No warpaint? Laughing
I hope the scale is going to be right for my dinosaur collection, because I really like this one.

Well, if 1:37 scale is near enough your preferred scale, then you're in luck Very Happy

I like this figure a lot, everything about it (e.g. no warpaint Wink) reminds me of their excellent Gastonia from 2014, and it's nice to see them incorporating the accurate colouration into the paint-job.

Just recently discovered and we already have a replica from CollectA. If it was not enough to turn CollectA dinosaurs exciting... it also respects what is known about the creature and it is a lot. It may even be one of the dinosaurs brought to live that may look closer to what the real creature looked. Bravo CollectA! Very Happy

It's nice to see CollectA continuing to hit the stride they really started last year with their prehistoric and dinosaur line.I especially like this new Borealopelta markmitchelli. Very Happy
