Brachiosaurus (Forange)

Today I want to introduce you to the most unusual and by far biggest dinosaur figure in my collection. You may be familiar with the great Lego reviews by Bella Bricking and Beth Buildit (powered by Suspy) though the most popular of Lego`s dinosaur offerings are full mold dinosaurs rather than brick build ones. Following …

Triceratops sp.(Eofauna)

North America in the late Cretaceous was home to some of the most famous and iconic dinosaurs. Here, in the vast landscape, huge herd of the most famous ceratopsian, Triceratops, congregated in their annual mating season.Triceratops in huge numbers dominated the landscape as other dinosaur gave way, perhaps overwhelmed by the shear number of the …

Parasaurolophus (PNSO)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy Parasaurolophus is easily one of the most recognizable and famous herbivorous dinosaurs, and ornithopods along with Iguanodon and Edmontosaurus. The long, hollow tube like crest is its most distinctive feature, easily recognizable, and setting it apart from most hadrosaurids, except for its close kin Charonosaurus and the …

Orthoceras (CollectA)

Orthocones, conical fossil shells belonging to extinct cephalopods, are among the most popular and easily obtained fossils. So abundant are they that they’re often included in mass produced fossil dig kits for children, made into jewelry, or sold as souvenirs in museum gift shops. Orthocones are found around the world with most of the specimens …

Long-Necked Plesiosaur/Woolungasaurus (Lost Kingdoms Series A by Yowie)

While I do admire the Yowie line for it’s variety, several have given me headaches for being based off species known off bits and pieces, a leg bone or a finger. Fortunately, this isn’t the case for all, and here we have one such case, Woolungasaurus, an elasmosaurid plesiosaur from the early Cretaceous of Queensland, …

Irritator (Dino Hazard)

Brazilian paleontologist Tito Aureliano published the time-travel dinosaur adventure novel Dino Hazard: Realidade Oculta (English subtitle: Hidden Reality) in 2015, and since then he and a team including other paleontologists and artists have been spinning off paleo-themed merchandise and media, including a video game. The setting for the story is Brazil in the middle of …

Spiclypeus (Beasts of the Mesozoic: Ceratopsian Series by Creative Beast Studio)

The second wave of the Beasts of the Mesozoic Ceratopsian Series from Creative Beast Studio has arrived! Among the ranks is Spiclypeus shipporum, a recently discovered North American chasmosaurine that lived during the late Campanian stage of the Upper Cretaceous. It may possibly be synonymous with both Pentaceratops aquilonius and Ceratops montanus, the latter being the type genus …

Allosaurus Roaring (CollectA)

Review and photos by Patrx It pains me to admit this, friends, but the truth is that Allosaurus never made much of an impact on me when I was younger. I had many books on the subject of dinosaurs, (and other prehistoric animals™) but most of those seemed unsure of what to do with this …

Therizinosaurus (Salvat)

One issue that will always plague any creative outlet is this: plagiarism. Many will copy the best for a quick and easy way to get sales or attention. When it’s mentioned here, usually this is in referenced to Geoworld, and they are certainly guilty of this. However, they aren’t the only ones though. Salvat editores …

Pachycephalosaurus (Austin) (Prehistoric Animal Models by PNSO)

It was almost exactly a year ago when I reviewed the Safari 2020 Pachycephalosaurus, a much-needed modern rendition of the most popular of the bone-headed dinosaurs. In that review I declared the Safari Pachycephalosaurus the definitive figure of that genus, but now I’m back again with another Pachycephalosaurus, this time by PNSO. Although they both …

Steropodon (Lost Kingdoms Series A by Yowie)

The Mesozoic saw the rise of the dinosaurs to dominance, as they were the largest and most successful animals around. But naturally, they weren’t the only creatures around, as this era saw the rise of birds and mammals. They were often small, especially during the Jurassic period, but they set the stage for their eventual …

Mamenchisaurus (CollectA)

Famous for their long necks, even longer tails, and being one of the largest land animals ever to walk the earth, Sauropods are some of the most famous dinosaurs of all time. It is no surprise that some of these giants reached iconic status and are perennial favorites among toy figure companies. Like all animals, the …

Qianzhousaurus (PNSO)

Like its close relative Alioramus, Qianzhousaurus was relatively small for a tyrannosaurid, measuring only around six metres long and weighing an estimated 757 kg. It is also one of the strangest-looking members of its family due to its very narrow, elongated snout. Such gracile anatomy meant that Qianzhousaurus lacked the brutal bite strength of its …

Pachycephalosaurus (large) (UKRD)

Marginocephalia is a clade full of interesting species that are largely hard to define by their body, with their only real definition being their heads. There are two groups, the ceratopsians (for which the number of models are near innumerable) and the less popular pachycephalosaurs. There are many figures of them, though far from the …

Hadrosaurus (Marx)

Although we are all familiar with the dinosaur family hadrosauridae it seems that the dinosaur that gave the family its name has been largely forgotten, despite being a historically important dinosaur. Hadrosaurus foulkii was first described by Joseph Leidy in 1858, from remains found in New Jersey’s Woodbury Formation. Hadrosaurus is the first dinosaur ever …
