Papo Stygimoloch Review:
The Papo Stygimoloch was scheduled to be released in 2020, but was not actually released in the U.S. until early 2021. Currently, the Papo Stygimoloch is the only toy Stygimoloch figure currently available (however you may want to look at the related Dracorex figures) . Overall Papo did a good job on this Stygimoloch figure, however it is smaller than we would like. The head / horns are well sculpted and painted, but with it's small size the details don't jump out as outstanding. The brown and green body paint are acceptable, but they have a little shine to them that makes the figure look a little "plastic-ey". This is a good figure and as the only Stygimoloch currently on the market, this Papo dinosaur would be a great figure to add to your Papo dinosaur collection.
Papo Stygimoloch Facts:
Aside from Pachycephalosaurus itself, two other pachycephalosaurs were described from the latest Cretaceous of the northwestern United States: Stygimoloch spinifer ("thorny Moloch of the Styx") and Dracorex hogwartsia ("dragon king of Hogwarts"). The former is only known from a juvenile skull with a reduced dome and large spikes, while the latter, also known from only a juvenile skull, had a seemingly flat head with short horns. Due to their unique head ornamentation, they were seen as separate species for a number of years, but in 2007, they were proposed to be juvenile or female morphologies of Pachycephalosaurus. At that year's meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, Jack Horner of Montana State University presented evidence, from analysis of the skull of the Dracorex specimen, that it may well be a juvenile form of Stygimoloch. In addition, he presented data that indicates that both Stygimoloch and Dracorex may be juvenile forms of Pachycephalosaurus.
The Papo Stygimoloch is part of the Dinosaur Series by Papo.
The Papo Stygimoloch is hand painted and made of durable synthetic material.
