Designer David Silva is the brains and talent behind a Kickstarter campaign to produce more realistic dinosaur toys. It’s been fairly common knowledge for quite some time that dinosaurs were much more closely related to birds than lizards, and yet they are still portrayed as scaly in movies, the toy aisle, and even in museum gift shops. David decided to remedy this and create these amazingly detailed and poseable dinosaur action figures, the way the ancestors of birds should look.
He’s calling the new line of toys ‘Beasts of The Mesozoic’, and starting with 3 dinosaurs in the raptor family. A pledge of $35 will get you one, so you can set it in your favorite pose looking pretty, or have it clomp along various household surfaces while saying ‘rarr!’ Check out his Kickstarter page to pledge.
