2012: PAPO GOES RETRO, IT APPEARS!

Hey, gang! As recently uncovered by staff member Roselaar and by Dan, from DansDinosaurs.com, Papo revealed their latest creation, scheduled for 2012: the Tylosaurus! Like it or hate it, but that retro (who said outdated?) design will definitely fit with their previous aquatic critter, the Plesiosaurus. So, as usual, you should be able to find this new creature in stores around summer 2012.

NEW INTERVIEW: MR STURCKE AND MR BUTKUS ABOUT JPD2 CONCEPT ART

Today we have another interview for you. Mr. Sturcke and Mr. Butkus are kind enough to tell us about some Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2 artwork that was featured on their websites. That included some previously unknown, unreleased specimens! Did you know there were a RC Hummer and a RC T-Rex drawn for that line? Also, they gave us some insight in how much artistic liberty they have in designing paint schemes for dinosaurs or for the packaging.

Check it out here!

UNKNOWN PROTOTYPE MYSTERY SOLVED!

Thanks to staff member Trike123, we managed to ID the 'prototype' we posted about earlier. After the initial post almost two months ago, we've been trying to get some answers on this guy. Our thanks goes to several of our members, who provided us with more pictures of this figure. It appeared to have different paint schemes, but the figure was always the same one. Recently, staff member Trike123 spotted this figure for sale in a Jurassic Park (!) collection. After buying it, we were able to tell where the figure was from: it turns out it's Daniel Jackson, from Stargate! Produced in 1994, by Hasbro. Questions like why Resaurus used this figure for the pictures (and why they used figures from 1994 in general for the 1997 line), and why the figure had two other paint schemes on the pictures, remain unanswered.

For sharp pictures of the lot it was found in, the figure itself and the packaged version, visit our forum thread here!
