If i were doing a dinosaur line i would first stick to the basics .T-rex , Apatosaurus, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Parasaurolophus, and Ankylosaurus. This way the most popular dinosaur groups are represented and even kids know who these are. After that then add in the more exotic dinos but in small coordinated groups such as triassic dinos, dinos of china, s. america, pterasaurs, sea monsters and so on. You could possibly retire certain sets which usually boost the value of the collection. My biggest problems with some of the lines is unrealistic sculpts and scales. Doing the dinos all to one scale makes the collection more unified, appealing, and educational. I hate when say a velocirator and brachiosaurus are made the same size it throws of the collection in my eyes. Landscapes and terrain i think is a great idea to set the collection apart from others no one else has them. Anyways here are a few dinos i would like to see made but are usually overlooked by museum lines. Camptosaurus Lambeosaurus Saurolophus Tsintaosaurus Anatotitan Alamosaurus Agustinia Argentinosaurus (hey go big or go home) Suchomimus Ceratosaurus Coelophysis Giganotosaurus Carcharodontosaurus Chasmosaurus Pachyrhinosaurus Pentaceratops Kentrosaurus Sauropelta Ornithomimus Therizinosaurus Stegoceras Stygimoloch
I never read before how big the Olorotitan grew, 40 feet is pretty big. Now i know this a scale Olorotitan would be a nice 1/40 scale figure to own. The Procon one is good but a 1/40 one would be better. Im surprised that it is not a more popular dinosaur considering its size and complete skelaton finds.
^^^^ Well, nobody here wants the Vendian set (other than you, me and stoneage that is), but the Devonian/Carboniferous/Permian set has a lot of potential.
Should we make a list of marine reptiles? A complete set like the Playvision one would be appreciated by collectors AND kids.
That would be great but I'd like the amphibians to be represented like Labyrinthodonts Crassigyrinus, Platyhystrix, Cacops, Peltobatrachus, and Eogyrinus etc. Plus the Lepospondyls Triadobatracus etc. ;D
