...It,s very impressive realistic dinosaurs! And very expensive, yeah? Nice models without questions, by the way - sauropod model is diplodocus or seismosaurus? There are most large sauropods on this pics...

(top-down) (lagest length - 60 m)
1. Amphicoelias fragillimus
2. Argentinosaurus huinculensis
3. Supersaurus vivianae
4. Diplodocus hallorum
5. Sauroposeidon proteles

Laughing Laughing Laughing

Seriously Sergey, why do you think diplodocus are graceful and apatosaurus aren't ? Why ?
Because, like all the people older than 40, we saw books with fat brontosaurus and slender diplodocus when we were young... That's the only reason.
Why do you think apatosaurus have a short tail ? The old book !
We are intoxicated with false datas...
that's maybe the only reason why the last Schleich looks like a fat brontosaurus with a fat tail, to be sure that the parents who would buy it won't be shocked by a slim apatosaurus with a long tail.

Now, look at the skeletal reconstructions : Here is a Diplodocus one

And here is one of the apatosaurus reconstruction !

And here is the Raderstudio model :

Now repeat after me : Apatosaurus are not fat ! Apatosaurus have a long tail like a whip !
Believe me, you will recover Very Happy I will try to give you good medicine Laughing

Thank You teacher Kiki Very Happy For me You are expert because You have MUCH better knowledge then me and I can learn from You Cool

Of course I remember some pictures of dinosaurs from the past and maybe that's why I imagine them stockier. But thanks to doctor Kiki my imagination will be updated Laughing

For me or my son I would rather buy Schleich or Papo version of course. I can't buy such expensive models like from Rater Studio site but I wanted to show it because it's interesting.

Oh no.... Shocked Poor and sad Kiki No

Please Ana, if there is one thing I will like to teach is how to buy a decent and accurate model.

If you want to buy a dino, go for arecent Safari and not a papo or Schleich.

Believe me, the artist you are will fall in love with them and you will give your son the great chance to play with dino toys which look like the real ones and not beautiful but false models. Wink

It's time to stop the curse of fat apatosaurus Very Happy

Laughing Ok, now I understand :) Safari are quite hard to get for me but I will think about it :) So none of Schleich or Papo dinos are accurate? I was thinking about 1 or 2 figures for beginning scratch

Ok I found the answer from You Kiki:shonisaurus, edmontonia, parasaurolophus or plateosaurus by Schleich. Right?

This is a lot for beginning. But maybe I will think how to get Safaris Cool

Today I saw, a live, for the first time, the sauropodas of Safari! A diplodocus and an apatosaurus!
And I think that Christophe is absolutly right! There is something that gaves him reason... he don't use words like ... very beautiful... so cute... very colourful, etc. He explains logically his points of view!
I like it! The dinos are absolutly well donne!
Of course I'm not saying that he is God! But Bacchus... maybe!!! :)

Papo dinosaur figures are amazing but there is so few of them.  There are so many dinosaurs missing from Papo line.  I don't usually stick to one brand but Papo dinosaur figures are just better than every other brand by a mile.  With that said, which brand make the next best looking dinosaurs figures after Papo?

If you are looking for accurate models of dinosaurs, go for SAFARI Ltd or KINTO favorite.

Can someone tell me what the different between the regular Safari dinosaurs and the Carnegie collection? Are they more detail? Are they the same scale?

Without being an expert, I have the impression that they are both very fine, but Wild Safari Dinoes has a few odd ones, like the cute babies and such . scratch

I don't think there are simple generalizations here that are going to hold consistently. The Carnegie line is supposed to be a "museum" line (more accurate, more aimed to the collector) but some of the Wild Safari dinosaurs are (in my view) absolutely wonderful and preferable to their Carnegie counterparts (for example, I love the Wild Safari Triceratops and I like it more than any of the Carnegies). So it's a mixed bag and there isn't an easy answer. You'll really have to look at each model individually.

However, when the Carnegie series succeeds, it really succeeds. (You'll have to take my opinions with a grain of salt. I would take my Safari dinosaurs any day over my Papos. There isn't a single Papo dinosaur that I prefer to my most favored Safaris.) The Carnegie Giganotosaurus and Diplodocus are just awesome.

But ultimately, I try not to get too stuck on just one brand. Similarly, I try not to form a bias against any brands either. My favorite Parasaurolophus is the Schleich Replica-saurus from 2007 I think. I realize that most collectors think Schleich dinosaurs are horrible. And they often are. But I don't want to make the mistake of missing out on a great model because I am biased against a brand. Likewise, I don't particularly like CollectA dinosaur models in general. But I have their Psittacosaurus and Plateosaurus and I love them. (Their Therizinosaurus also looks good.)

if size isn't an issue, you should check out Kaiyodo's dinotales series, as well as other japanese brands

I think they are not in the same category... Papo, Safari and Kinto are available and still in production. Battat are beautiful, accurate and sought after but are retired and some are very very very expensive. Shocked  Wink
