I often enjoy feedback from collectors, and one thing I heard quite regularly, was "Where are all the great Yutyrannus models?" While there have been a few mass produced Yutyrannus figures, the quality can vary quite a bit, and most are pretty modest in size. I decided that my friend Shane Foulkes would be ideal for bringing this beast back to life in a larger scale, and he happily obliged. As always, Shane has delivered a stunning sculpt with fluid movement and absolutely packed with feathery detail. This exemplifies what I feel is the ultimate fantasy of Yutyrannus fans, and I'm absolutely delighted to have played some small role in its production.

Upon hearing of "Dan's Dinosaurs", people often ask me, "Oh, so you make dinosaurs?" While I was not sculpting the dinosaurs myself, I did explain that Dan's Dinosaurs was actually better than that; it is a showcase for some of the best prehistoric replicas ever made, crafted by the most renowned paleoartists in the world. Three years after opening shop in 2009, I decided to build upon this idea by offering an exclusive line of models. These models would adhere to the highest standards of artistry and science, so each piece could truly be recognized as one of "Dan's Dinosaurs". This line of original models launched in 2012, and their worldwide popularity reflects our continued captivation with the natural history of our planet.
