I just managed to find all the Paposaurs. In comparison to other (obviously less detailed) dinosaur toys, they are quite expensive, like €15 for most. But, I think they are worth every cent. If you compare the Papo Rex with the Sideshow JP statue, you'll be amazed how much more detail the Paposaurs have, plus the price difference... that one is enormous.
I like the Allosaurus the most. Yes, I know, my judgement is clouded, since it's my favorite dinosaur in general... But I do think it is the most original of the line. No Allosaurus appeared in the movies, and the one seen in the JP games doesn't really look like this one. I hope they continue their line soon (and not just with some dumb mammoths).
Well, another Paposaur has surfaced. Strangely, it is not announced at Papo's website, or has it been released to any other store than just one French online store. It cost me about €30 to get it, considering those French charged me with a lot of extra fees. Anyways I got it and it was worth the effort.
I think this is either a pre-release (it will be released next year, considering the website says 'nouveau' or new) or it wasn't supposed to be released at all (considering Papo announced nothing, but the text on the egg says (c) PAPO 2009). I truly can't tell.
The egg is not removeable, but you can cut it away. The egg is actually glued to the hand. But, if you remove the egg, it will fall over. It stands on its two legs and the egg.
It is quite small though, about the size of the Velociraptor. The paintjob is quite different from the promotion shot, but I think it's better this way. It looks more natural . And to be honest, the egg is not annoying. It has a different shape than the egg on the promotional pic, it looks quite real with some detail on it. It also stands more upright than the egg on the promo pic, it looks like the Ovi ran over some nest with one egg upright, grabbing it and just taking off again.

That's a great new addition to the collection! Thanks for posting that. Hope it's available soon for us all to buy. ;D
I do wish Papo would start concentrating on more of the JP dinos though. That still have not done Ankylosaur, Corythosaur, Compy, Dilophosaur, Gallimimus or Brachiosaur. Come on Papo...let's see these!
