Description

Ugears adds a new beast to its dinosaur automaton collection with theTriceratops (“three horned face”), a dynamic, mechanical DIY wooden model ofthe dominant herbivore of the late Cretaceous period. Like our Tyrannosaurus Rexmodel, the Triceratops is driven by a metal spring which transmits power througha reduction gear, turning the axle that drives the four legs. An eccentric gearsets the tail swaying in synchronous motion with the legs, helping the dinosaurwalk smoothly, just as in nature.

Up to 9 meters in length and 9 metric tonnes in weight, Triceratops roamedthe prairies of what is now North America some 68 million years ago, grazing onlow-growing vegetation with their sharp, parrot-like beak. They were such asuccessful species that a leading paleontologist has estimated that five sixthsof all large dinosaurs at the time were Triceratops! Their most identifiablefeatures are the large skull (roughly one third of the total body length!), thelarge horns above the eye sockets, measuring up to 1 meter in length, and thelarge bony frill on top of the skull. Some paleontologists think the horns andfrill were used for combat, while others think they served for visual display,especially in courtship. Triceratops skeletons have been found with partiallyhealed bite marks from Tyrannosaurs, suggesting both predation and successfuldefense. Imagine a fearsome encounter between these “terrible lizards” asyou build, play and display the Ugears Triceratops model alongside the UgearsTyrannosaurus Rex model!

This amazing walking dinosaur model is a wind-up DIY wooden 1:32 scale modelof a full-grown Triceratops. A winding key is concealed between thedinosaur's shoulder blades. Remove the key and insert into either of thecircular ratchet mechanisms located on either side of the dinosaur's belly.

Hint: if the legs are blocking the winding slot, wind from the other side, orpress the “Start” button and spin the large gear under the dinosaur's bellyto advance the legs until the winding slot is clear. Press the “Stop” switchand give six or seven full twists of the key to wind the spring, then return thekey to its position between the shoulder blades. Place the Triceratops on asmooth, flat surface, holding the automaton gently by the tail, push the“Start” switch down and release. Your Triceratops will saunter away, itstail swinging jauntily, its enormous head and frill bobbing and its jawssnapping. Perhaps it's trying to escape danger— a hungry Tyrannosaur or anexploding volcano? Or maybe your Triceratops is in search of greener pastures?It takes a lot of ferns and cycads to fill the belly of a 9 tonne beast!

The Ugears Triceratops is rated “Advanced” level, has 400 parts, andpromises 8+ hours of exciting assembly time. No glue or special tools arerequired for assembly.
