PNSO has a mini figure of Yangchuanosaurus, a giant theropod that roamed Jurassic Asia. It was an apex predator that filled the niche occupied by allosaurus in North America and Torvasaurus in Europe. The model measures 10-11 cm long which makes it perfect for 15 mm pulp gaming. The model is fantastic and cast in one piece with its base. auction

The auction is not mine, but has the best photos I could find of the figure.Correct name is Yuanchaunosaurus! The real animal was up to 10 meters long.

That looks like a fun surprise to spring on the player characters!

True! Imagine the looks on their faces when the hunters reach the edge of that weird Mesozoic woodland mix of evergreens and giant tree ferns only to find that monster peering in at them ! It is considered probable that non-avian theropods would have had excellent vision and sense of smell.

The model could also work as saurophaganax or torvosaurus. All these lived at the same time and were roughly similar in appearance.
