PostSubject: The 2013 KINTO FAVORITE Brachiosaurus walkaround.   Tue Feb 19, 2013 9:49 pm

The model I want to share with you today is a Brachiosaurus.

Brachiosaurus is one of the best-known dinosaurs amongst both paleontologists and the general public.
Brachiosaurus had a proportionally long neck, small skull, and large overall size, all of which are typical for sauropods. However, the proportions of Brachiosaurus are unlike most sauropods. The forelimbs were longer than the hindlimbs, which result in a steeply inclined trunk, making the overall body shape reminiscent of a modern giraffe. Also, while the tail is a typical long dinosaur tail, it was relatively short for a sauropod.
Much of what is known by laypeople about Brachiosaurus is in fact based on Giraffatitan brancai, a species of brachiosaurid dinosaur from the Tendaguru Formation of Tanzania.
The length of Brachiosaurus has been estimated at 26 metres.

This animal was an "actor" of Jurassic park movies and was seen on the BBC "walking with dinosaurs" serie.

All the Majors have a brachiosaurus in their dinosaur line, some like COLLECTA or SAFARI Ltd have even more than one.

Last year, indeed only a few months ago, PAPO produced a huge and astounding Brachiosaurus and it has already a Big fan club.  cheers

So why I need to make a walkaround about a "Japanese only" small figurine ?

The KINTO FAVORITE brachiosaurus isn't spectacular as a PAPO, it is even not big, the plastic is too glossy and the colors are not very… Coloured.

I like very much this model because it has most of the quality of the Japanese stuff. It is a toy but it is realistic, I mean accurate, and it is made by a great sculptor Araki Kazunari. Japanese companies are making real educational toys and I think it is a great thing.
Among the Western companies, only SAFARI Ltd seems to have the same goal. SCHLEICH and PAPO are great companies but, at least for their dino lines, are absolutely out.
COLLECTA have a big, the biggest, range of dinosaurs but a lot of them are not very realistic… Some are really good too.
MÖJO is a new brand and need to improve his dino line.
I don't want to let you think I'm pessimist. For me PAPO have incredibly good dino toys, SAFARI Ltd have incredibly good dino replicas and I have great hope about COLLECTA and MÖJO.

And now, let's have a look at this "not incredible" and different Brachiosaurus.  Suspect

Thank you to be here.  Wink




























At last, with my SAFARI Ltd brachio  I love you  cheers  sunny

Thank you Sergey Very Happy

The neck of Brachiosaurus is still in debate I guess Wink

From Wikipedia :

Neck position
In contrast to most other sauropods, brachiosaurids had an inclined back, due to their long forelimbs. Therefore, if the neck exited the body in a straight line, it already pointed upwards. The exact angle is influenced by how the pectoral girdle is reconstructed, that is how the shoulder blades are placed on the ribcage. The mobility of the neck was reconstructed as quite low by Stevens and Parrish, while other researchers like Paul and Christian and Dzemski argued for more flexible necks.

That's a beautiful model Christophe! I'm not a dinosaur collector but eventually I will break down and get a Brachiosaurus (truly). It's great to see this walkaround.

Christophe, I followed your advice very recently and got this Wild Safari Brachiosaurus. Thank you for the excellent advice. I'm extremely happy with it. It is a gorgeous Brachiosaurus sculpt. (I also have the recently retired Schleich/Replicasaurus. And I may get the Papo. Those latter two are great for size; but they've got nothing on this Safari in terms of the sculpture.)

I'm glad this topic was brought back and I had the chance of watching it. Sleep As you already know I agree completely about the accuracy on toys enpowering them as educational tools. I love also the movement on that figure and your walk around is excelent as always. Very Happy
Scott, I also want to congratulate you due to your new addition. Some topics have very good influence on our choices and I am sure the Safari figure is an excelent acquisition. Though, the non collector of dinos is getting a herd of Brachios! Laughing Very Happy

Thank you Roger! I've collected several dinosaurs for the first time, over the last two months. It's worrying my wallet.

Dinosaurs are dangerous to wallets and take a lot of room. Two reasons why I am not collecting these formidable creatures. But.... scratch Very Happy
