Never ceases to amaze me, how much praise those hydrocephalic rubbish sculpts get, particularly on TMP.

I thought I saw it somewhere mention it is roughly 10 cm long and tall.

On a positive note, they might have been ok in the early eighties... :D

I kind of like the doctor. Rough, but a nice pulp feel to it. :oops:

Are their dinosaurs really bad, then? That's a shame, as they seem to be the only option for ankylosaurus in 28mm.

In a nutshell, they do to their dinosaurs what Ex Illis does to horses.

Just to pick on that one example, their ankylosaurus is recognisable because it's got armour and a tail club, in the way Ex Illis' horses are recognisable because they've got manes and hooves. Compare it to David Krentz' near-10mm ankylosaur. (Prints here, here and here.) Granted, he's got the (slim) advantage of Zbrush zooms and undos and what-have-you, and I'd say he's one of the top dino-sculptors in the world, but at the end of the day at least his ankylosaur's shape bears some resemblance to the flippin' physical remains.

And hopefully to show I'm not just falling back on my dinosaur obsession, some of their extant animals don't look too healthy either. Those wolves... strewth.

That said, buy it if you want it. 'Cos like you say, unless some Schleich or Papo toy comes close to fitting, there's nothing else at 28mm...

Or you could look at their attitude to human anatomy, in the first post. :lol:

...Though you could always try switching to 15mm...
