I briefly covered Papo’s 2013 new releases, which included the Dimetrodon and Carnotaurus. On paper I wasn’t super excited about either (not like the Ankylosaurus at least), until I actually bought the toys and saw how awesome they were.
The Dimetrodon might be the most detailed Papo dinosaur yet, between the extremely well painted “fin” on the back right down the veins down it’s side. Honestly the thing looks like a living lizard.
The Carnotaurus is smaller than I would have expected, but the pose is very dynamic even if a little hard to balance sometimes) and the perfect height to be teeth-to-face with a 28mm mini. Detail is great as always, even if the color scheme is a little drab.
Anyway in my latest game I took a few showcase pictures and thought I’d share (click for larger size):
Just gotta remember to take a picture of the Pterodactyl as well, since it sits by my window sill in the games room I often forget about it by the time I have my camera ready.
You can see more of these two new dinosaurs with some really great pictures in the Fight for the Flaming Gorge battle report.

Awesome. You probably know about these, and the scale might be off, but just in case: http://safariltd.com/collection/collectionproductlist?crdesp=Jurassic+Period&criteria=time
