Default Papo Velociraptor w/ Different Colors?

So...I was looking around at different velociraptor toys...since I'm thinking of building a pack...or whatever the proper word for their group is. I remember having a bunch of different ones when I was younger but now can't find them :C

Anyway...I got the Papo 2011 version...which I'm very happy with...however

There are other paint jobs for them? When did they come out and how can I get them? From the pictures I've seen...there is one that is just kinda brownish and another that is brownish with darker brown stripes...

I have the new version too. The older one is hard to get hold of I think, this is it here http://www.toys-hobby.co.uk/images/p...aurs/55003.jpg I don't know of any other colours though or where to get the old version, sorry.

Oh, I also got a new version, though I don't really like its color. However, the older version still can be found in some shops in my country. Hope to get it too one day.

By the way, what do you think about this figurine. I believe it's one of the most detailed velociraptor figurines ever existed.

But how come Papo didn't represent it with feathers? We now know for sure raptors had feathers...

Well, their velociraptor is like the one from the Jurassic park. And as far as I know, that reptile (from both the film and the book) was very similar to Deinonychus). And Crichton's mentioned it in his book.
Maybe the next dino they make is a furry velociraptor))

Pfffff... and when will that "Jurassic Park" fashion will end!? It's been lasting since 1993, it would be time we put it in the past and search for something new. This fashion has lasted too long already for my own taste.

When there's some new dinosaur blockbuster;)

I've seen a photo of a velociraptor with feathers (don't remember the brand), but it was pure detailed.

You might be thinking of the Bullyland one--pretty much roundly dismissed by dino collectors. I haven't yet seen it, but apparently the new CollectA Utahraptor looks very good (with feathers).

I think I'll work to get that feathery Bullyland Velociraptor.

Maybe. Don't remember, really. However, I like the Jurassic-park-style velociraptor more than that one with the feathers- because of the quality.

Oh, I've seen the photo of that Collecta figurine. He's a bit strange to me (just can't get used to the feathers, though I have read the articles about such dino's appearance).
