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).
I prefer dinos without the feathers too and don't mind the Papo Jurassic park style, but I wish they'd make a Brontosaurus or Brachiosaurus.

Yes, that would be great.
The best Brachiosaurus now is the Schleich one, I think.

I prefer the feathered Velociraptor, any brand it could be. It definitely is the most accurate. To ignore this is like preferring iguanodons represented standing straightened with no cheeks and no beak. Out of date.

I think you'll change your mind after seeing the Carnegie 2012 additions...
By the way, wasn't the velociraptor released in a green colour once?

Maybe. New Safari figurines will appear in my country only in September, so we are still waiting here

Yes, Schleich has a green velociraptor. But he is too toylike, IMHO.

Dinosaurs might not have had feathers, no one can prove that they did and I don't believe Dinosaurs evolved into birds either, so to me I see no point in having feathers, sorry but that's just my viewpoint Don't argue with me because that's just what I think, I'm not saying anyone is wrong.

No, I meant Papo. I remember someone saying something about it, but that's it. No pictures.

Raptors HAD feathers: the traces of feathers have been found on many raptors fossils, traces that look just like the traces on Archeopteryx fossils. With those traces, we know that Archeopteryx had feathers. So, if Raptors fossils have the same traces, they had feathers too!

it's possible they did have feathers, why not?! But I still don't believe they evolved into our birds today, even if they did take millions of years to evolve.
Do you think dinos like the brontosaurus had feathers, or do you think they evolved into other animals, like lizards? I'm just curious that's all.
