Default Schleich 2012 Dinosaurs

Looks like mainly repaints and minor resculpts.

We can read most people are disappointed because no new species have been brought. I also think at least one new species would have been welcome.

Would deinonychus counted as new? I think the newly-retired 'raptor' was Velociraptor.

Why always raptors? Why not a new ceratopsian or a new hadrosaurus?

Seeing as 'people' generally means 'small boys' when it comes to dinosaurs, then yes, people will choose vicious looking dinosaurs with claws and teeth over a small hornless ceratopsian or a hadrosaur that doesn't have crests. Every time.

But being that they're Schleich ones, they'd just mess them up anyway.

Small boys... I see what you mean. Though, I still think there are enough interesting species among obscure ones. There are even OBSCURE CARNIVOROUS ONES: Acrocanthosaurus, Charcarodontosaurus, Metriacanthosaurus... Safari ltd already released a vast choice os obscure prehistoric predators (kaprosuchus, dilong, guanlong...). Even if we know Schleich would probably mess them up, I think it would be time for them to start making researches again; just like back when they were 100% european-made...

I also think that is why they make african elephants almost each year...sales and popularity.

Has anyone seen these in person yet? Promos or at a show?
The poses are all the same as the 1:40 Replicasaurus series were - but they have 14000 series numbers like the older small series had. So - big or smaller?

Edit: SO I just answered my own question. They are middle sized - 13 to 33cm, with the larger ones having moveable mouths like Papo. So they are a totally new third line, not part of the 1:40 but bigger than the older small dinos line. This is all in the brochure you can flip through on the Schleich site now.
