Beasts of the Mesozoic: Ceratopsians- a line of scientifically accurate dinosaur action figures with elaborate detail and articulation.
Dinosaurs have captivated us for generations and were one of our first loves as children. We all know of them, people love them all around the world, and yet these majestic creatures of prehistory are sorely underrepresented in the collectibles industry, most notably, as action figures. In 2016, the Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series Kickstarter campaign offered finely detailed, scientifically-accurate, highly poseable dinosaur action figures, and with over 2,600 backers, the response well exceeded expectations. Now the time has come to follow up the Raptors with the next phase in the dinosaur toy revolution. It's time to celebrate and explore, the Ceratopsians!
Welcome to the world of Beasts of the Mesozoic
The Beasts of the Mesozoic: Ceratopsian Series picks up where the Raptor Series left off, with a focus on scientific accuracy, detail, functionality, and imagination! With this second series, the Beasts of the Mesozoic line strives to improve upon all of these qualities while adding more diversity of dinosaur species and larger, more varied figures thus recreating a time in which wildlife flourished in ways we humans have never witnessed. Some species offered here will be very familiar while others present new opportunities for discovery, much like when we first learned of these amazing creatures in our formative years. Join me while we revisit old favorites and possibly find some new favorites as well.
A little about Creative Beast Studio
Creative Beast Studio is a sole-proprietorship owned by David Silva, a designer/ sculptor in the toys and collectibles industry since 2003. David has worked for companies such as McFarlane Toys (Dragons, Spawn), Hasbro (Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Marvel), and NECA (Predator, Godzilla, Pacific Rim, Aliens). David has run Creative Beast Studio in addition to full-time employment in the toy industry since Fall of 2009. With an initial focus on dinosaur model kits, the Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series Kickstarter in 2016 has helped grow the company's audience exponentially and the focus is now to seek the potential for wildlife-based action figures, for which collectors have very few options.
A 'Thank You' The Beasts of the Mesozoic: Ceratopsians Team
Before we get to the goods, I'd like to give a very appreciative acknowledgement to all of the talented artists who contributed to this project with me. If not for them, this campaign wouldn't be possible.
Gecco has announced the first in a new series of statues, Dinomation The Retro Style (Dinosaur and Stop Motion Animation). These statue are meant to look like classic dinosaurs from old films and not modern style (like Jurassic Park). Check out the details below from Gecco and pre-order here from Gecco or from other retailers (listed below).
Since their discovery Dinosaurs have been portrayed in many different ways.
With every new discovery and artist imagination, the look of the dinosaurs changed. Extensive research and new evidence have locked down the anatomy of certain dinosaur species.
In this statue series, we capture the Dinosaurs in a retro style rather than an academic approach. Something that might appear in classic stop motion animation films.
The series title, Dinomation, comes from combining the words "Dinosaur" and "Stop Motion Animation." RYO the sculptor, painter and creator of this series, captures a moment of dynamic movement with the Dinosaur frozen in time, cut from a film frame of an imaginary yet familiar fantasy film.
He captures the wildness and vitality of the creature through his traditional clay sculpt.
The world’s most famous dinosaur "Tyrannosaurus Rex" marks the start of the series.
The base is inspired by the deserted landscape in North America, where they are said to have lived in the Cretaceous period.
"Spinosaurus" is lined up as the second release of the series.
