best i can think of is a excessively spikey version from the family Mahajangasuchidae, or land crocs. Maybe even Mahajangasuchus itself. Definitely not one of the longer-legged varieties like kaprosuchus. Its head isn't really croc-like like that family but it's the closest i've been able to match them

 

Or they gave Megalania a ridged spikey back and horn.

They're discovering new dinosaur species all the time. Look up Ambopteryx, announced just a few weeks ago.

 

I think when the Avengers went back in time, they caused something to change so this specific species hasn't been discovered in our timeline yet - but two years ago in the original timeline, it was actually discovered back in the 70s. Them's the risks of time travel, folks.

To be fair, would one rather get a box of Bones with stinkbugs? Or without stinkbugs? Or even stinky bugs?

 

 

Hopefully they wont be getting  boxes full of dead fumigated stink bugs... 

 

Just try sending one of those back to Reaper for replacement because it’s missing a leg or two...

they are =P but the new miniature is already made, so it can't be based on something recently discovered. If it looks like something discovered in the future, then it's a happy coincidence, but it couldn't possibly be what inspired the mini itself, which is what we're discussing

Seems to me that such an action would tend to discourage any colonization on the part of the stinkbugs.

The effect on Bones in confined contact for extended periods of time has yet to be observed and reported.

Oh, Buglips, Nebulous Missy has a question for you!

Considering AU's fauna I am more worried about what might get in the box there. 

Unless the shipping container has suffered physical damage it should be vermin proof.

Since there are reports of stink bugs I'm going to make a guess that the container has suffered some sort of puncture damage.

The normal specification for seaworthy containers is at a minimum, wind and water tight.

Might have been bugs on the ship and the customs folks decided that fumigating the exterior was a useful precaution, too. Australia has had serious problems with invasive species and they take prevention pretty seriously.

 

The marmorated stink bug is native to China, Korea, and Japan and has become a problem in the US over about the last 20 years. It is thought that the bug got here by hitching rides on cargo. There are apparently populations in Texas, so it's also possible that the bugs originated there if they're inside the container.

In the limited discussion they had on Reaper Live no one said the infestation was inside of Reapers container.

It was mentioned that the ship made stops at several point of calls before reaching Australia which is why it took so long to get there.

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice
       
      they seem to have fulfilled their last KS OK with minor hiccups

      SITHRAH is a sci-fi about a little girl trying to find her father after their plane crashes in a unfamiliar land. That's when she starts seeing an invisible creature, called SITHRAH, who has been following her around. It's not long until she runs into a young man named Dino who is running from his own ghosts. Together they set out to find her missing father wherever the evidence leads. 
      Book 4 will focus on their journey across The Deep to try to find Light City.
      This series will be 6 books long.
      Sithrah has been a big experiment with the comic format by mixing subtle prose with comic panels. My hope is to blur the lines between comics, children's books, and novels without making it jarring for the reader.
      Most of my inspiration comes from the comic artists of the 90's when I refined my drawing style. Later I became influenced by Miyazaki's movies and storytelling and have been trying to make comics that have a similar depth and feeling.
