Let me show you the first of the 2012 COLLECTA model which reached my shelves. It is a very very fine figurine. Both paintings, sculpture and details are excellent.
Dolychorhynchops was an atypical 3 meters long plesiosaur that sported a long, narrow head and a short neck (most plesiosaurs, like Elasmosaurus, had tiny heads perched on the end of long necks).
Based on an analysis of its skull, it seems that Dolichorhynchops wasn't the most robust biter and chewer of the late Cretaceous seas, and likely subsisted on soft-bodied squids rather than bony fish.
This was one of the last plesiosaurs of the late Cretaceous period, existing at a time when these marine reptiles were gradually supplanted by sleeker, faster, better-adapted mosasaurs.
An now the pics...

It isn't bad at all! Good to see they've avoided shrinkwrapping the skull, at least. How sturdy is the snout, any chance of warping (my Safari toob one's nose has gone all banana-shaped)?
